Teledyne Dalsa has released two new versions of its Piranha4 series, expanding its flagship line scan family to more than ten models. The new cameras have 2k resolution and an advanced feature set to help customers solve challenging machine vision inspection problems.
The new models make use of advancements in Teledyne Dalsa's CMOS image sensor technology for high speed monochrome and colour imaging.
The new monochrome Piranha4 dual line scan camera delivers a maximum line rate of 100kHz in TDI mode, or 200kHz in Area mode. The Piranha4 2k tri-linear model delivers a maximum line rate of 70kHz. Features include sub-pixel spatial correction, lens and shading correction, and flat field correction.
The Piranha4 2k models are suitable for high speed inspection applications in both colour and monochrome. Colour applications include 100 per cent print inspection, banknote inspection, package and label inspection, and food inspection. Monochrome applications include railway inspection, printing, wood, film, and label inspection, and general machine vision applications.
The area mode enables the Piranha4 2k dual line scan camera to operate two times faster for increased web speed, while the ability to operate in TDI mode provides better responsivity and signal-to-noise ratio. The high dynamic range mode allows longer exposure time on one line and shorter on the second line.
