Point Grey has added a new GigE power-over-ethernet (PoE) network interface card to its growing family of Gigabit Ethernet cameras and accessories.

The new GIGE-PCIE2-2P02 is a two-port network interface card (NIC), with each port providing up to 15.4W. The NIC has a dedicated Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controller that supports jumbo packets and maximum GigE bandwidth of 120MB/s. Combined bandwidth of 240MB/s is handled using the card’s PCI Express Gen2 x1 interface. The low-profile board design makes the GIGE-PCIE2-2P02 suited to 1U, 2U and other small form factor enclosures.

Point Grey’s FlyCapture SDK includes a low-level GigE image filter driver that can be installed on the GIGE-PCIE2-2P02 and can be used to reduce GigE packet load on the CPU by filtering out GigE Vision stream protocol (GVSP) packets. The GIGE-PCIE2-2P02 is compatible with all Point Grey Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet cameras, as well as third-party devices, and presents a significant cost advantage over competing two-port NICs.
