Osceola, WI – Can you think of an cable application that needs to withstand flexing and resist abrasion, flame, water, sun, and extreme temperatures?

Northwire Inc., manufacturer of cables for industrial networking, has introduced a line of cable for Camera Link applications that passed 17 million cycles in testing. It uses Northwire EnduroFlex blended elastomer jacketing material for rugged industrial and outdoor environments. The cable is suitable for applications that require abrasion resistance, flame resistance, high- and low-temperature stability (a high temperature rating of 105 degrees Celsius and brittle point of -50 degrees Celsius), sunlight / UV resistance and water resistance.

The Northwire Camera Link cable line includes standard cable and Power Over Camera Link (PoCL)—Camera Link cable with power transmission capabilities. PoCL is available for Standard Camera Link or Mini Camera Link (MiniCL) assemblies. MiniCL uses a smaller connector than traditional Camera Link, with the same hardware and software protocols. The cables feature 28 AWG conductors and meet the requirements of Appendix D and Appendix E of the Camera Link specification.

Camera Link cable follows a high-speed serial communication protocol that is based on the National Semiconductor Interface Channel Link. Camera Link was created for vision applications to help standardize video products, such as cameras, cables and frame grabbers.
