Northwire introduces flex-tested Camera Link® cable – Passes 17 million flex cycles

Northwire, Inc., a leading manufacturer of cables for industrial networking, has introduced a line of cable for Camera Link applications. In testing for flexion, Northwire’s standard Camera Link cable passes 17 million cycles.


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 but incorporates the same hardware and software protocols.


Northwire’s standard and PoCL Camera Link cables feature 28 AWG conductors and meet the requirements of Appendix D and Appendix E of the Camera Link specification.


Northwire Camera Link cable 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.


For information or a sample, contact Northwire at 1-800-468-1516 or +1 715-294-2121, or at http://www.northwire.com/pocl.


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 that includes cameras, cables and frame grabbers.


Northwire, Inc. is an industry leader in the design and manufacture of industrial-grade technical cable. Custom design choices include paired, non-paired, triads, various shielding and grounding options, special insulation options, and a variety of conductor and jacket materials and colors.
