The following table includes the names of the available Basler GigE Interface Cards, their compliances with Base-T transmission rate categories, the kinds of brackets present, and the required unoccupied PCIe slots on the computer's motherboard.
|Model||1 Port||2 Port||4 Port||1 Port |
|2 Port |
|4 Port |
|PCIe Slot Req.||≥2.1x1||≥2.1x2||≥2.1x4||≥2.1x1||≥2.1x2||≥2.1x4||≥2.1x1|
The PoE interface cards listed above receive power via the PCIe slots except for the Basler 4 Port GigE PoE Interface Card. It must receive AUX power from the computer's power supply via a 4-pin 5.25" Molex receptacle of the Molex 8981 series.
