The new Falcon2 series of Camera Link cameras from Teledyne Dalsa, now available from Stemmer Imaging, offers frame rates of up to 168fps with 4 Megapixel resolution for high-speed imaging. A 12 Megapixel resolution model offers a frame rate of 5fps.
Featuring the same improved-performance CMOS sensors used in Teledyne Dalsa’s Genie TS cameras, the series is composed of three GenICam compliant high-performance models with the Camera Link interface. True global shuttering removes unwanted smear and time displacement image artefacts, making Falcon2 cameras ideally suited to applications where throughput, resolution and dynamic range matter. These include automated optical inspection for electronics manufacturing, semiconductor wafer inspection and flat panel display inspection, as well as solar panel inspection.
The Falcon2 series feature in-camera image pre-processing providing flat field correction. An extensive feature set includes programmable exposure time and frame rate via the Camera Link interface or by external hardware signals, and selectable aspect ratios (4:3 and 1:1). All three models are housed in a compact, rugged and thermally efficient body, so they need no external cooling system.
