The CLR-111A Camera Link Repeater is an economical approach for increasing separation between camera and fame grabber. One Camera Link cable pair connects the camera to the repeater, and a second cable pair connects the repeater to the frame grabber. This arrangement provides a 20 meter reach between camera and frame grabber using standard 10m Camera Link cables. Several repeaters may be cascaded to support greater distances.
The Camera Link extender incorporates high-speed 85MHz interfaces and is compatible with all Camera Link configurations (base, medium, full, 80-bit). Front-panel status LEDs identify an active base, medium, or full configuration connection.
Combining the CLR-111A with shorter (i.e. 5m) cables provides separation while ensuring data integrity in high-performance applications.
The CLR-111A Camera Link Repeater is housed in a sturdy, compact aluminum enclosure.

Camera and/or Frame Grabber has the mini (HDR/SDR) connector?
This product incorporates the standard (MDR) connector. Camera Link cables are readily available with the standard (MDR) connector on one end and the mini (HDR/SDR) connector on the other. Note that the CLR-111A does not support PoCL.
Cable Length Note:
To ensure data integrity, we recommend limiting Camera Link cable length for cameras with high clock frequencies as follows:
Max Cable Length
For example, cables used to connect the camera to the repeater AND the repeater to the frame grabber should be no longer than 5m with an 85 MHz camera.
Doubles max distance between camera and frame grabber
Combine with shorter (i.e. 5m) cables to provide separation while ensuring data integrity in high-performance applications
