Piranha4 by Teledyne Dalsa
13 February 2013
High line rates up to 140kHz, a choice of resolutions, and pixel sizes of 10µm or 14µm to maximise sensitivity, bring extra versatility to the Piranha4 dual line scan cameras.
CMOS sensors also offer high dynamic range, making Teledyne Dalsa’s Piranha4 family, available from Stemmer Imaging, suited to demanding applications. These include flat panel inspection, printed circuit board inspection, solar cell inspection and narrow and wide web inspection.
Piranha4 monochrome cameras make use of Teledyne Dalsa’s dual line scan technology featuring two parallel arrays of pixels to provide twice the sensitivity compared to single line systems. The versatility offered by the new CMOS sensors utilises larger pixel size for the higher line rates to ensure no loss in sensitivity.
Integration time and line rate can be adjusted to suit the application. There are 1k and 2k resolution versions with 14µm pixels and a maximum line rate of 140kHz. 2k and 4k versions are available with 10µm pixels and a maximum line rate of 100kHz. Also, 4k and 8k versions are available with 7µm pixels and a maximum line rate of 70kHz.
