The HSLink interface is a new machine vision connectivity interface pioneered by DALSA with the support of a number of other industry vendors. As a group we are working with the Camera Link 2 subcommittee to bring reference designs and a more complete specification to the table for industry use as the next generation Machine Vision interface.
HSLink is designed specifically to meet the needs of all machine vision applications and therefore carries image data, configuration data and low jitter, real time triggering signals over a simple network topology supporting cameras, intermediate devices and frame grabbers. The interface has taken the key strengths of Camera Link, and added new features and functions to meet the customer demands of today and tomorrow. HSLink is designed from a system point of view, ensuring the ability to create low cost cameras and frame grabbers, while meeting the ease of use, flexibility and data reliability demanded by end customers.
Key features include:
- HSLink Interface - next generation image acquisition interface
- Diecast hood with thumbscrews
- Ultra compact, field proven 26AWG CX4 cable and connector
- Dedicated communication channel supports data rates up to 3.125 Gbits/s
- ROHS compliant
