Genie Nano-M2450-Polarized model

Teledyne Dalsa, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision technology, is pleased to introduce its newest Genie™ Nano camera built around the Sony® Pregius 5.1M polarized image sensor. The Genie Nano-M2450-Polarized model features a monochrome quad polarization filter, resolution of 2448 x 2048 pixels, and image capture of 35 frames-per-second. With Teledyne DALSA’s TurboDrive™ technology, frame rates can increase by as much as 50%.

With the addition of the Genie Nano polarized model, Teledyne DALSA is the first company to offer polarization for both area and line scan (Piranha™4 polarization) cameras. Polarization enables detectability of stress, birefringence, through-reflection and glare from surfaces like glass, plastic, and metal. Sony’s newest image sensor, with its pixel-level polarizer structure, enables the detection of both the amount and angle of polarized light across a scene. Four different angled polarizers (90°, 45°, 135° and 0°) are positioned on each pixel, and every block of four pixels comprises a calculation unit.

“Offering polarization across both area and line scan imaging means greater choice for customers looking to resolve defects that are undetectable with traditional imaging for a growing number of applications,” commented Manny Romero, Senior Product Manager.

Key Features:

  • TurboDrive for fast frame rates and full image quality
  • Built around the Sony IMX250MZR, monochrome polarization CMOS image sensors
  • Small footprint and light weight frame at 21.2 mm x 29 mm x 44 mm/ 47 grams
