Adlink Technology Inc, a provider of machine vision boards, has announced the release of the GIE62+, the industry's first Power over Ethernet (PoE) frame grabber which supports two independent Gigabit Ethernet ports for multiple Gigabit Ethernet Vision device connections with data transfer rates up to 1000Mb/s.

Power over cable solutions provides single cable solutions between cameras and frame grabbers to provide both data and power.

By supporting the link aggregation control protocol (LACP), the two Gigabit Ethernet ports of the GIE62+ can be configured as a Link Aggregation Group (LAG), and provide a sustained maximum data rate of 2Gb/s.

The GIE62+ is Adlink's latest addition to their 'power over cable' series of frame grabbers supporting Power over Camera Link, IEEE 1394b (FireWire 800), and now Power over Ethernet.

The GIE62+ also provides automatic detection of being a powered device within the system to ensure reliable connections between other PoE and non-PoE cameras and frame grabber cards.
