Adimec has introduced the Quartz Q-2A340 area scan camera, extending its popular line of Quartz cameras based on high-performance CMOS sensors from Cmosis. This camera combines proven global shutter CMOS technology with the proprietary Adimec True Accurate Imaging approach that results in CCD-like image quality with unmatched speed.
The 2 Megapixel Q-2A340 transmits up to 340fps at a 2,048 x 1,088 resolution with 10 bits per pixel over either a standard 10 tap Camera Link interface or two standard coaxial cables using the dual CoaXPress version.
The camera offers a range of quality-enhancing features. Advanced Flat Field Correction (FFC) capabilities, even in colour and with field calibration support, deliver better image uniformity. The camera delivers signal-to-noise improvements of up to 12dB shot noise improvement compared to off-the-shelf CMOS sensor performance. It also offers an HDR mode for large scene dynamic capture capabilities.
The model uses True Accurate Imaging to manage inherent sensor imperfections and maximise image uniformity, image reproducibility, blemish corrections and signal-to-noise performance. True Accurate Imaging improves the quality of images to provide accurate registration of the smallest details.
The camera is available in monochrome or colour models, and offers optional near infrared (NIR) capabilities. Customisation of the camera is supported to optimally fit the application needs.
