The VisionLink XF is a remote extender for Camera Link base through extended full mode, over fiberoptic cabling. The camera can be tens to thousands of meters from the host computer, depending on the cabling and transceivers.

The VisionLink XF supports data rates up to 850 MB/s and pixel clock rates of 20-85 MHz.

Two VisionLink XFs combine to form an extension system between the camera and an EDT or third-party Camera Link framegrabber. Through the SDR26 connectors on each device, one extender attaches to the camera and the other to the framegrabber. A fiberoptic cable connects the two extenders via the SFP+ transceiver on the back of each.

Triggering / serial is provided via Camera Link, or externally via an optional Lemo connector.
