SAN JOSE, Calif., 2 Dec. 2016. ADLINK Technology Inc. in San Jose, Calif., is introducing the PCI Express-GIE72/74 2/4CH PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet vision Power over Ethernet (PoE)-Plusframe grabbers for a wide range of machine vision applications.

The PCI Express-GIE72/74 is secured from damage by the PCI Express-GIE72/74's PoE power protection. In addition, a PoE management utility and APIs monitor and control PoE ports in real time and enable prediction of possible failure events.

Several PCI Express-GIE72/74 cards can be installed in one system without occupying any BIOS I/O resources. Combined with wide operating temperature tolerance from 0 to 70 degrees Celsius, the multi-card capability makes the PCI Express-GIE72/74 appropriate for deployment in fanless computers in environments with limited space and in applications such as automated optical inspection (AOI) and industrial automation.

The PCI Express-GIE72/74 is designed with PoE protections to eliminate the threat of asset damage. The frame grabbers respond to over- and under-current, voltage and temperature events, and their automated power budget control manages budgets according to source (PCI Express or 4/6 pin Molex connector). When the budget is exceeded, PoE power is interrupted to prevent damage to connected devices.

The PCI Express-GIE72/74's utility and APIs provide real-time PoE status monitoring of device class, voltage, current, wattage, and temperature. PoE power can be switched on and off remotely; PoE port priority and thermal thresholds remotely set; and possible failure predicted.
