About This Product

QHY's Fiber Grabber Card is a PCIE2.0 x 8 image data graber card. It supports 2*10Gbps high-speed optical communication between the camera and the computer. A single QHY PCIE Grabber card can be used with more than one camera in succession (not simultaneously). This means that if you have multiple QHY PRO series cameras, and you plan on using them at different times, then you only need one card between them.

Features:

  • PCIE 2.0 x8
  • 4GByte onboard DDR3 memory
  • Four 10Gbps fiber sockets
  • One 40Gbps fiber sockets

Supports the following cameras:

QHY268PRO, QHY600PRO, QHY461, QHY411, QHY4040PRO
