The Sapera LT SDK is free of charge for use with Teledyne DALSA cameras and frame grabbers. Sapera LT offers functions for acquisition, image transfer and display, memory management and networking (for GigE cameras). The Sapera LT package includes CamExpert, which is an enhanced camera configuration utility designed for Teledyne DALSA cameras and frame grabbers.

Sapera Essential extends the functionality of Sapera LT with numerous imaging tools that provide developers with all the necessary functions to design, develop and deploy high performance vision systems. Once a development licence is purchased the basic functions can be licenced without cost when tied to a DALSA frame grabber or camera. For advanced tools such as search, OCR and barcode further licence fees are required.
Sapera Essential is a cost effective package that includes a range of imaging functions, including a highly advanced search package, which includes area and edge based search algorithms, a barcode tool supporting 1D and data matrix codes, a blob analysis tool, an optical character recognition (OCR) tool, and a colour tool for classification and filtering. Optimised functions for morphology, filters, geometric measurements, segmentation, point-to-point operations, transforms and several other processing functions with subpixel accuracy are also available.
Sapera Architect Plus is a GUI-based algorithm evaluation tool included in Sapera Essential that allows the construction of sequences of operations that perform imaging tasks without writing a single line of code. It features an intuitive interface that allows users to gain insight into the interrelationship between various parameters by adjusting them in realtime to build-up appropriate imaging sequences prior to coding using the Sapera SDK. Sapera Architect permits users to achieve a fine balance between speed, accuracy, and the repeatability of results by providing information about the execution time of a function of a sequence of operations.
Reasons to choose the Sapera Software Suite
The image capture process is controlled and monitored from the trigger to the transfer to the host memory. T2IR is a combination of hardware and software features that work together at a system level to improve the reliability of the inspection system.
This prevents many errors before they happen and makes the system more reliable, which in turn delivers more uptime, more productivity, and lower costs.
- Provides system debugging and tracing
- Reduces downtime
- Improves application response time
- Increases robustness
CamExpert is an enhanced camera configuration utility designed for Teledyne DALSA cameras and frame grabbers. The Windows-based programme provides an interactive environment to create a new, or modify an existing, configuration file for area and line scan camera applications.
This GUI enables the developer to configure the camera and grabber efficiently, thus reducing development time.
