In-Line Illumination

By Edmund Optics
6 October 2015

White Paper Lead ImageIn-line illumination is a unique style of lighting that incorporates the illumination into the optical train of the machine vision lens, usually by means of a fiber optic light guide or LED light source and a beam splitting optic. This paper describes the fundamentals of in-line illumination, as well as advice on when to use the technique and when not to.

Using TurboDrive to Exceed GigE Boundaries

By Teledyne DALSA
25 September 2015

White Paper Lead ImageTurboDrive™ is a proprietary and patent-pending data encoding technology that enables cameras to transmit 100% of image information at a rate exceeding the constraints of gigabit Ethernet. TurboDrive uses image entropy based encoding to model pixel information with no loss of information. This enables faster data transmission on the link as each pixel is comprised of fewer bits for encoding.
