WATERLOO, Ontario, Oct. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision technology, is pleased to introduce its newest Linea cameras. The cutting-edge multiline CMOS camera, Linea ML™ will transform the way line scan cameras are used, including options for monochrome/HDR, colour, and multispectral imaging for various machine vision applications.
Based on the latest CMOS sensor technology from Teledyne DALSA, the Linea ML cameras deliver spectacular images at a maximum line rate of up to 300 kHz using the next generation CLHS fibre optic interface. Sequential exposure with independent start and stop integration for each channel allow versatile illumination configurations using the latest LED lighting technologies. When combined with the Xtium™2 CLHS series of high-performance frame grabbers, these new models address the industry’s most demanding applications with improved detectability. Linea ML cameras will be available by the end of this year.
“The new Linea ML cameras are ideal for the industry’s highly demanding vision applications, where resolution, throughput and detectability matter. Their unparalleled speeds, advanced capabilities and features are unmatched in the industry. In addition to monochrome/HDR imaging, customers are able to capture multifield (brightfield, darkfield and backlit) images in a single scan with pulsed lighting using monochrome models. These new models are also able to capture RGB or RGB+NIR images in a single scan with continuous wave lighting using colour or multispectral models,” said Xing-Fei He, Senior Product Manager.
Built on field-proven technology, the next generation CLHS fibre optic interface provides reliable and high throughput data transmission. Fibre optic cables lower system costs, offer longer cable lengths (up to 300 m), are immune to electromagnetic radiation, and are ideal for industrial environments.
- High speed of up to 300 kHz line rate in 8k/16k resolutions
- Mono/HDR imaging with single or dual outputs
- Time division multifield imaging in a single scan using sequential exposure
3 native colours, RGB plus optional NIR
- Camera Link HS fibre optic interface for high reliability data transmission
- Lower system costs
Teledyne DALSA’s Xtium2 family of high-performance frame grabbers feature the PCI Express Gen 3 x8 platform to deliver unimpeded images from Linea ML to the host computer. The Xtium2-CLHS FX8 frame grabber uses a quad port SFP+ 10 GB/s interface and allows the use of standard fiber cables to reach a distance of over 300 meters. Fully supported by Sapera LT SDK, the Xtium2 family is now in full production.
