The Falcon 1.4M100, a new 1.4-Megapixel, high-speed camera from Dalsa is now available from Firstsight Vision. The new camera delivers 100fps at full 1,400 x 1,024 pixel resolution. Even faster frame rates can be achieved through vertical windowing. A dynamic range of 57db ensures excellent image quality.
Housed in a compact body, the new camera is suited to applications in electronics manufacturing and semiconductor inspection. These include wire and die bonding, flat panel display inspection and pick and place applications. The high-speed capabilities also make it suitable for use in industrial metrology and general machine vision applications, such as print registration and pharmaceutical inspection.
The camera’s sensor provides global shuttering, global reset and concurrent integration and readout. True global shuttering aids the imaging of fast-moving objects by electronically shuttering all pixels simultaneously even at short exposure times, to provide crisp images without smear or distortion.
Fully programmable via base mini Camera Link (CL), the camera incorporates exposure control, gain and offset adjustment, and flat-field correction. The mini Camera Link interface allows data transmission over 10m cable lengths. Ease of use is enhanced through direct camera control using Dalsa's CamExpert point-and-click graphical user interface.
The Falcon 1.4M100 is compatible with Dalsa's Xcelera PoCL (Power over Camera Link) series of frame grabbers, as well as Dalsa's X64-CL and Anaconda CL vision processors.
