Piranha4 2k and 8k Linea line scan cameras

Share this on social media:

Teledyne Dalsa, a Teledyne Technologies (NYSE: TDY) company and global leader in machine vision technology, has introduced its Piranha4 2k quadlinear line scan camera featuring red, green, and blue (RGB) outputs plus a Near Infrared (NIR) channel for multispectral imaging.

The quadlinear Piranha4 is built around Teledyne DALSA’s advanced CMOS image sensor design. Wafer-level dichroic filters enable spectrally independent RGB and NIR outputs, enhancing detection capability for a wide range of machine vision applications, including print, bank note inspection, electronics manufacturing, food and material sorting. 

“Our Piranha4 multispectral camera extends line scan capability beyond color imaging,” commented Xing-Fei He, Senior Product Manager. “The NIR channel enables OEM in print inspection, electronics manufacturing, and food and material sorting to easily detect defects they couldn’t see before. Some customers are currently using one trilinear camera (for color imaging) with a monochrome camera (for NIR imaging) in a system. Now they will be able to replace two cameras with one quadlinear multispectral camera and realize significant cost-savings.”

The new RGB+NIR Piranha4 multispectral camera is available in 2k resolution, with 14.08 micron pixel size and delivers a maximum line rate of 70 kHz. In addition to its multispectral capability, the camera also features sub-pixel spatial correction, horizontal parallax correction, multiple AOI and ROI, and independent exposure time for each color channel. Flat field correction can be done on each channel or as a group.

Key features include:

  • Teledyne DALSA’s proprietary CMOS sensor technology

  • Spectrally independent RGB+NIR channels

  • High speed 70 kHz

  • Small form factor

  • Sub-pixel spatial correction

  • Horizontal parallax correction

  • Multiple AOI/ROIs for output and calibration

  • 8, 10, or 12 bit depth selectable 

Teledyne Dalsa has also released its high resolution 8k line scan camera - the latest addition to its Linea series of low-cost, high-value cameras. The feature-rich Linea cameras address the mainstream market for machine vision applications and delivers high speed and responsivity at an exceptional price point.

Like the 2k and 4k models, the Linea 8k monochrome model is built on the same powerful platform and acquires images at incredibly fast line rates of up to 80 kHz.

"Linea cameras are performing exceptionally well in customer trials right now," commented Behnam Rashidian, Senior Product Manager for Teledyne DALSA. "With the introduction of the 8k model, the Linea family redefines the price-performance ratio, offering system integrators speed, responsivity and low cost."

Features of the Linea single line camera series include:

  • High responsivity in the visible and NIR wavelengths
  • Multiple user coefficient and FFC calibration sets
  • Programmable and Flexible triggering
  • Support of Camera Link cables up to 10 meters

These compact, affordable cameras are ideal for general machine vision applications, including postal and parcel inspection, materials grading, food and web inspection, rail and road inspection, and pharmaceutical inspection. Linea and Piranha4 will be on display at the Vision Show, Booth D54, November 4-6 in Stuttgart, Germany.
