Teledyne DALSA Piranha Colour - Colour line scan cameras with trilinear sensor

Teledyne DALSA's Piranha Colour series delivers excellent colour fidelity and the highest line rates, with resolutions from 2048 up to 4096 pixels.

Teledyne DALSA's advanced design minimises the distance between rows (equivalent to three pixels centre to centre) to minimise image artefacts due to synchronisation. The result is a performance like a high-end 3xCCD prism camera. However, the camera can be set up in combination with a standard F-mount lens reducing costs.

The Piranha Colour has integrated programmable flat-field correction and, combined with white balancing, provides the user with optimum colour rendering. Two different models are available depending on the line rate and the image data is transfered via CameraLink in 3 x 8 or 12 bits.
