Teledyne DALSA Sapera Essential

Vision software imaging toolkit

Teledyne DALSA Sapera Essential is a vision software imaging toolkit that bundles image acquisition and control with image processing tools to provide developers with the critical functionality to design, develop and deploy high-performance machine vision systems.

Teledyne DALSA Sapera Essential: Easy image processing

Teledyne DALSA Sapera Essential offers quick and easy access to software functions to control image acquisition, manage image memory and facilitate image processing and analysis tasks. It includes a powerful frame grabber configuration and camera setup utility plus a suite of image processing tools including a highly advanced, yet cost effective, search package that supports both area and edge- based pattern location, a versatile barcode tool for both 1-D and 2-D decoding, blob analysis capability for defect detection and a calibration tool for lens correction.

CamExpert: The Camera Configuration Utility

Teledyne DALSA Sapera Essential comes bundled with a redesigned version of CamExpert; a newly enhanced proprietary camera configuration utility specifically designed for Teledyne DALSA frame grabbers. This Windows based program provides an interactive environment to create a new, or modify an existing configuration file for both area and line-scan applications.
