Various features of the Teledyne DALSA Genie Nano help to reduce the need for further components and thus to keep the system complexity and cost low: With the Burst mode, the frame rate can be increased despite of the GigE Vision bandwidth limitation. By combining the high data acquisition rate in the large on-board image buffer and comprehensive cycling modes and readout control, applications with fast burst acquisition can be realized. In this mode, images can be acquired at maximum frame rate of the sensor with the data buffered on the main storage of the camera. The buffered data is only transferred during camera idle times e.g. when a conveyor belt moves forward. With multi-ROI you can define up to 16 ROI's and limit the read-out of image data to the important parts of the object. This reduces processing time and frees computing power. The Cycling mode allows the usage of various different user-controlled configurations. This means that you can work with different light sources, lighting angles, exposure times, gains etc. for every line. This 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.
- You can avoid costly and complex hardware solutions thanks to the reduced data stream that multi-ROI create.
- Multiple illumination variants of the same object increase failure detection and production security.
- When various illumination set-ups are mandatory to inspect one object, using the Cycling mode can reduce inspection time.
