PHIRE Camera Link Fiber Adapter
The PHIRE system is a compact converter system for the Camera Link interface to optical fiber and back. Models with simplex
or duplex fibers are available. To offer the right system for manifold applications in the field you can choose between single and multimode fibers and systems for different data width and pixel clocks as they are present in the Camera Link standards.
These systems are also called fiber adapters, camera link fiber adapters and camera link extender, meaning all the same.
The whole range of adapters is completely transparent for your existing or new system and requiers no change in hardware and software. After choosing the right system for your configuration the Phire systems are selfconfiguring for the interface parameters.
For complex system topologies you can utilise components from the IT networking market to integrate up to 64 cameras while using only one multimode fiber with full bandwidth for each camera. Technical Specifications

1x PHIRE-CM (Transmitter)
1x PHIRE-FG (Receiver)
2x 12V DC Power supply, 80-240V Voltage, 50/60Hz, with snap locking plug Remarks:
Distance depending on fiber type and system design. Transmission distance above is estimated minimum distance for 50/125 MM fiber and 9/125 SM fiber. Extra optical losses in the system will reduce the transmission distance.
