Quartz Qs series
Adimec has introduced its Quartz Qs series, initially featuring the Qs-4A40 and Qs-2A80 cameras. Both cameras use the Adimec True Accurate Imaging technique to deliver, according to the company, image quality comparable to, or in some cases better than, CCD-based cameras using CMOS-based sensor technology for improved speed.
The Qs-2A80 and Qs-4A40 deliver 2,048 x 1,088 running at 76fps and 2,048 x 2,048 running at 40fps, respectively. In burst mode, the cameras provide 170fps and 90fps respectively. The buffering capability in the cameras also eliminates the need for more costly infrastructure when operating at high speeds and provides the freedom to optimise on field of view, speed and shot noise performance.
Multiple flat field correction (FFC) sets are supported and stored in the camera and can be field calibrated by the onboard calibration routine. This opens up new possibilities to derive exactly the image needed under various conditions with just a single camera.
Both the Qs-4A40 and Qs-2A80 cameras are available in monochrome or colour models, and both offer optional near infrared (NIR) capabilities. Solutions with anti-reflection coatings are supported to maximise the application performance. All members of the Quartz Qs series are available with Camera Link Base.
Based on the Adimec True Accurate Imaging technology, the cameras offer a range of quality-enhancing features. Advanced FFC capabilities, even in colour and with field calibration supported, deliver better image uniformity. The cameras deliver high signal-to-noise ratio and also offer an HDR mode for large scene dynamic capture capabilities.
