The CLT-353R and CLT-353L Camera Link Translators convert Camera Link to RS-422 & LVDS, enabling the use of Camera Link cameras with frame grabbers and imaging systems incorporating traditional RS-422 and LVDS parallel digital interfaces. The “R” and “L” versions support RS-422 and LVDS interfaces, respectively.
These Camera Link converters feature an RS-232 port for camera communication and are very useful for replacing obsolete RS-422 & LVDS cameras in existing imaging systems.
The Camera Link adapters are housed in sturdy, compact aluminum enclosures.

Have special requirements? We can often customize these products to meet your needs...
Note that the CLT-353 frame grabber connector pinout is not compatible with our earlier CLT-351 model.
Camera 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 CLT-353 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, the cable used to connect the camera to the translator should be no longer than 5m with an 85 MHz camera.
