Teledyne DALSA Linea Colour

Cost effective line scan colour imaging

  • Fast high performance colour line scan camera
  • Bilinear CMOS sensor from Teledyne DALSA with 7.04x7.04 µm pixel size
  • Possibility to use multiple ROIs (regions of interest) to reduce data transfer and processing load
  • White balance ROI for defining only a small area as white balance target
  • Trigger to Image Reliability framework to protect from data loss and to improve reliability of the inspection system
  • Models with GigE Vision: Burst Mode and award winning TurboDrive technology for increased speed and performance
  • Horizontal and vertical binning (2x2)
  • Sub-pixel and parallax spatial corrections
  • Precise sensor orientation simplifies multi-camera calibration on system level
  • Smart FFC for an easier flat field correction without defocusing the lens
  • Colour interpolation in host PC for reduced data amount for tranmission and increased system speed
  • Noise filter for additional noise reduction
  • Graphical user interface for easy set-up, controls and implementation of the camera
  • Compact, robust design with light weight
  • Cost effective and thus ideally suited for cost sensitive high-speed imaging applications
  • Enhanced temperature range: 0°C to 65°C

4 Reasons for Teledyne DALSA Linea

You want to speed up your application

In case you want to use your existing GigE network but need faster line rates than usually achievable with a GigE Vision network, the TurboDrive function of the GigE models will enable you to increase the line rate significantly which means the standard GigE Vision data rate is increased multiple times.

Your advantage:

  • You can run your application faster while using all the benefits of GigE networks.
You have a high speed application with high requirements on data transfer

The GigE Vision model features the Burst Mode for high speed applications. In this mode, images can be acquired at maximum speed with the data buffered on the main storage of the camera. The buffered data is only transfered during camera idle times e.g. when a conveyor belt moves forward.

Your advantage:

  • You can keep your production speed high and avoid effort and cost for a more complex interface.
You want to run a fast application and avoid major investments in your computer network

With the Multiple ROI feature you can restrict your inspection to the object areas that are relevant. This reduces data transfer and processing load. Consequently the performance requirements on your computer infrastructure are reduced and you get the chance to boost the performance of your system.

Your advantages:

  • You can speed up your inspection.
  • You can continue working with your existing computer infrastructure and thus save cost for investing in network enhancements.
You need a reliable system that tracks data loss

The Trigger to Image Reliability framework controls and monitors the entire image capture process from the trigger through the image capture and transfer to the host memory. This procedure improves the reliability of the inspection system because data loss is clearly tracked.

Your advantage:

  • You can sort out parts that have not been inspected due to shortfalls in the image capture process and thus increase the quality of your inspection.
