Genie Nano camera range
Six new models featuring two and five megapixel resolution ON Semiconductor Python CMOS sensors have been added to the Genie Nano range of GigE Vision industrial cameras from Teledyne DALSA. Using burst acquisition and TurboDrive technology, these cameras can operate at higher frame rates with faster data transmission than normally possible using GigE Vision. This means they can be used in faster applications.
The new cameras are available in monochrome, colour and NIR-optimised versions. The unique combination of burst acquisition and TurboDrive technology allows image capture rates of up to 116fps at full resolution for the 2.3 Megapixel (1900 x 1200) sensors and up to 51fps for the 5.1 Megapixel resolution (2592 x 2048) sensors. This is more than double the frame rates that can be achieved without TurboDrive.
TurboDrive uses advanced data modelling to boost data transfers beyond the nominal link capacity. This brings fast, inexpensive data transfer over distances of up to 100m using Ethernet components and CAT-5e and CAT-6 cables to allow faster applications to be accommodated using GigE Vision. The TurboDrive technology is supported by Common Vision Blox, Stemmer Imaging´s machine vision programming library.
Genie Nano cameras are built with Teledyne Dalsa’s Trigger-to-Image-Reliability framework. This controls and monitors the entire process: the trigger, image capture and transfer to host memory. This allows the inspection quality to be increased by sorting out parts that have not been inspected due to shortfalls in the image capture process.
The small camera footprint (44mm x 29mm x 21mm) and light weight (46g) makes it easier to integrate into small spaces and existing systems, while the wide temperature range (-20ºC to +60ºC) and high mean time between failures help to extend camera life and increase system reliability and endurance.
