Pleora Technologies and Moog Protokraft Provide Ethernet Video Transport in Harsh Environments

Combining Pleora Technologies' GigE Vision streaming and control technology with Moog Protokraft's rugged packaging, power and high speed electrical interface design expertise creates advanced video transport and control solutions for extreme environment applications.

Ottawa, ON Canada August 13, 2013

Pleora Technologies and Moog Protokraft today announced a technology collaboration that facilitates high-performance video capture, streaming and control in harsh environment applications. The Eagle series RS-170 and Camera Link® to GigE Vision® video converters developed by Moog Protokraft address the growing demand for networked video in military, aerospace and other harsh environment applications. Combining Moog Protokraft's advanced packaging, power and high speed interface designs with Pleora Technologies' low-latency GigE Vision and GenICam™ compliant streaming technology delivers vision solutions that provide high bandwidth, small size and weight, reduced power consumption, increased reliability and lower system costs in extreme operating environments.

The two companies will be showcasing their Ethernet video solutions and technology collaboration at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems 2013 in Washington DC at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from August 12-15 (booth#1713). "We've developed our hardware reference designs and structured our collaboration processes to accommodate rapid, low-risk design-in of GigE Vision compliant interfaces," says George Chamberlain, President of Pleora Technologies. "Moog Protokraft's implementation of our technology brings the benefits of GigE Vision to applications where it has been previously unavailable."

"Moog Protokraft's proficiency in high performance Ethernet switching and media conversion in harsh environments is a natural complement to Pleora Technologies' expertise in video connectivity," says Greg Boyer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Moog Components Group. "Our strategic collaboration with Pleora Technologies helps our mutual customers quickly and more cost-effectively deliver vision systems that fully address bandwidth, size, power and reliability requirements for network video distribution in military and commercial aerospace platforms."

Through their initial collaboration, Moog Protokraft and Pleora Technologies developed the Eagle series of RS-170 and Camera Link to GigE Vision video converters, which are both compatible with the Pleora eBUS™ SDK. Moog Protokraft designed the Eagle series video format converters with D38999 connector interfaces for military, aerospace, petrochemical, mining, industrial or utility applications where significant levels of shock, vibration and extreme temperature ranges are experienced. These components are designed for use in platforms where small size, weight reduction and resistance to dirt, dust and other contaminants are highly valued. The Moog Protokraft Eagle series of video format converters ensure seamless mechanical, electrical and software compatibility with the latest generation of GigE Vision software toolkits.

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

The PQ12-R series of linear servos are the smallest affordable linear servo on the market today. Small enough to fit inside a tic tac box, it's very powerful with a maximum force of over 11lbs. It operates as a direct plug-and-play replacement for standard rotary servos, using the same standard 3 wire connector. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the PQ12-R servo will function in place of a regular servo, but with the added benefit of providing linear motion. They're available in a 20mm stroke coupled with gear ratio options of 30:1, 63:1 and 100:1 cover a large variety of applications. Our PQ12 is popular used in a variety of robotics applications, medical devices, radio control and 3D printable bionic hands. Our PQ12 is proudly designed in Canada by our in-house team of engineers and thoroughly tested before leaving our facility.
