Teledyne DALSA Spyder3

Line scan cameras with GigE-Vision or CameraLink interface

The Teledyne DALSA Spyder3 is a compact monochrome line scan camera that uses the Gigabit Ethernet interface and surpasses its predecessor, the Spyder2, to deliver 3 times the responsivity and twice the line rate.

The Teledyne DALSA Spyder3 cameras feature the GigE Vision or the CameraLink interface. The GigE Vision interface opens up a variety of potential new application areas, offering very easy system integration and image data transmission distances up to an astounding 100m, using standard CAT 5E and Cat 6 cabling.

The Teledyne DALSA Spyder3 is available with resolutions of 1024, 2048 and 4096 pixels.

This Spyder3 series is perfectly suited for cost sensitive applications in a variety of applications. For systems requiring higher speeds and line rates, the Piranha series provides a range of alternative models.


  • Line sensors with 1024, 2048 and 4096 pixels
