GigE Vision - network switches, cards and cables

The performance level of a GigE Vision system depends strongly on the hardware and software components. It is extremly important to use powerful network hardware.

Attention should be paid to the use of suitable network hardware. CAT6 Ethernet cables are essential for reliable Gigabit Ethernet transmission in an industrial application. Depending on the environment, screw locking connectors, track chains or robotic-graded cables should be used. Switches and network cards should support jumbo frames. Sufficient memory capacity is also important so that when high data rates from several cameras are received, image packages can be buffered.
