This single fiber cable CameraLink Range Extender over Fiber streams high resolution images over up to 10 km in single-mode. In multi-mode, distances up to 400 meters can be covered. Power to the camera can be supplied by Power over Camera Link (PoCL). The components are a Komodo Fiber frame grabber and CameraLink to Fiber module. The SFP+ optical connection can be easily changed, providing high flexibility. Bidirectional communication is achieved over a single fiber cable at up to 10.3125 Gbps, equivalent to Camera Link Full/80 bit (Deca). Optional industrial grade operating temperature range of -40 °C to 85 °C is available.
