Mikrotron has combined its EoSens CXP+ Series cameras with Phrontier’s Phorte CXP fiber extender into a solution designed to help engineers in Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS), remote monitoring and other long-distance applications manage their networks and accelerate data-driven decision-making. Video and control signals can be transmitted a distance of up to 80 km over single mode fiber to provide full control of the data stream and EoSens CXP+ Series cameras, or up to 400 m in multi-mode.

The Mikrotron EoSens CXP+ series includes four camera models with 3; 4; 12 and 25 MP and frame rates ranging from 566 fps for the 3 MP version to 80 fps at 25 MP, allowing inspection of even the smallest details of components. The camera features a CXP-6 CoaXPress interface with four channels at 6.25 GB/second each, and the cameras transfer data in real time, enabling precise triggering and immediate evaluation and processing.

Phrontier’s Phorte CoaXPress fiber extender product family supports the CoaXPress standard, as well as Power over CoaXPress (PoXP) to supply power to the camera and receive power from the frame grabber.
