Adlink: Power over Ethernet GigE Vision frame grabber Announced
13 Oct 2010
The new Adlink GIE62+ PoE frame grabber allows power and data to be sent over a single ethernet cable to a PoE camera, eliminating the need for a separate power cable and power supply for the camera. This saves space, reduces costs and simplifies installation. The GIE62+ is a PCI Express® x4 frame grabber which supports two independent GigE ports. The GIE62+ PoE frame grabber can also be used with non-PoE GigE Vision cameras.
The GIE62+ combines the benefits of PoE technology with GigE data transmission rates up to 1000 Mb/s over cable distances up to 100 m in length. The two independent GigE ports are also compatible with Link Aggregation-enabled cameras where two Ethernet ports are linked to double the data transmission rate.
The frame grabber automatically detects both PoE and non-PoE devices connected to it to prevent power being sent to non-PoE cameras. It contains a power- management IC to provide short-circuit, inrush current, and current-limit protection to protect the connection between the GIE62+ and PoE or non-PoE cameras. PoE cameras may be hot-plugged removing the need to restart the computer.
