A quad-port GigE Vision frame grabber features Power over Ethernet (PoE), IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol and a smart PoE application programming interface. The GIE64+ from Adlink Technology supports PCI Express x4 lane, four independent Gigabit Ethernet ports with data transfer rates up to 1 Gbit/s, and GigE Vision camera compliance. With multi-channel synchronization, PoE interface, IEEE 1588 PTP technology and Smart PoE support, the GIE64+ cuts cabling requirements by as much as 60%, significantly reducing maintenance burdens and boosting ease of use. The GIE64+ is suitable for manufacturing environments utilizing multi-camera acquisition.

The GIE64+ supports IEEE 1588, providing a software trigger mode for multi-camera synchronized captures. Combining IEEE 1588 and PoE function, the module utilizes a lone Ethernet cable for power supply, data transfer and synchronization. In a typical 4-channel image system, the GIE64+ requires only four cables rather than the conventional twelve, representing a clear reduction in total cost of ownership (TCO). In addition, the GIE64+ further supports a smart PoE application programming interface, enabling easy power status programming and auto detection of compatibility with both PoE and non-PoE devices. Operational simplicity and energy efficiency are enhanced exponentially.

The GIE64+ provides link aggregation, increasing double-speed networking by merging two Gigabit Ethernet pathways into a single connection. An easy-to-read I/O-mounted LED display comprehensively communicates PoE status for worry-free power monitoring. Full driver support is provided for Windows 7/XP.
