Teledyne DALSA Genie Nano-CXP

CoaXPress camera with high resolution and outstanding image quality

The Teledyne DALSA Genie Nano-CXP comprises an impressing set of features in a robust housing. The latest CMOS sensors guarantee excellent image quality while the wide temperature range increases system reliability and endurance.

Offering 16 or 25 MPixel resolution with monochrome or enhanced NIR CMOS sensors, the Genie Nano-CXP cameras can deliver 80 fps at 25 Mpixel resolution. The small form factor, robust build quality and wide operating temperatures are combined with an exceptional feature set at a highly competitive price point.

The global shutter device delivers high speed and low noise image data. The Genie Nano-CXP is always designed with the smallest possible casing for the sensor size and data interface.

The Genie Nano-CXP has been designed to work synergistically with the half-length Teledyne DALSA Xtium-CXP frame grabber to minimise CPU usage and improve processing times.

Reasons to choose the Teledyne DALSA Genie Nano-CXP

High speed data transmission with CoaXPress

A number of models provide a CoaXPress interface, which allows larger data rates compared to CameraLink as well as the usage of longer cable lengths. This makes it possible to bridge larger distances between the camera and the host system and creates more flexibility for the entire setup.

Simplified integration into tight spaces

The extremely small and light-weight housing allow the design of very compact OEM and multi camera solutions. The integration into existing systems with tight spaces for the machine vision components is simplified. Thanks to the slim body length of only 38 mm, the use of more expensive angle head versions can be avoided. The slim design also leads to a general competitive advantage, when a single camera model fits all possible space requirements.

Reliable data loss protection

With the trigger-to-image reliability framework, the image capture process is controlled and monitored end-to-end from the trigger to the transfer to the host memory. This way data loss is clearly tracked and the reliability of the overall inspection process is improved. This helps in increasing the quality of your inspection by sorting out parts that have not been inspected due to shortfalls in the image capture process.

Extended system reliability and endurance

The extended operating temperature range makes the Teledyne DALSA Genie Nano an ideal match for harsh environments. Even with temperature differences there is no need for external cooling or protective housings. As no additional components are needed to keep the camera at a suitable temperature, very compact test cells can be built. The high temperature range and high MTBF helps to extend camera life and increase system reliability. This leads to fewer or no production outages and extends the endurance of a machine.

Flexible configuration for various usage scenarios

Different applications have different requirements for image acquisition and image processing. Some of these sometimes demanding requirements are high dynamic range, 10 bit pixel depth, use of the camera sensor’s highest internal read-out speed, or extending the capacity of the data throughput by means of (lossless or lossy) image compression.

Cycling mode to cycle through preset camera parameters

The cycling mode implements a method to use various different user-controlled configurations. This allows working with different light sources, lighting angles, exposure times, gains etc. for every line. That way, a single pass with a single camera delivers a high amount of information which is comparable to that of multiple cameras or combinations of camera and frame grabber. With this feature, costly and complex hardware solutions can be avoided, since e.g. multiple illumination variants of the same object increase failure detection and production security. It can also reduce inspection time in cases where various illumination set-ups are mandatory to inspect one object.
