Utilising Teledyne DALSA’s latest high-performance CMOS dual line scan sensor, the entire Piranha4 series offers an excellent image quality featuring line rates up to 140 kHz regarding the monochrome version. The unique dual line scan CMOS architecture delivers a 2x increase in responsiveness.
Large full-well capacity maximizes signal coverage for bright light, while low read noise and on-chip CDS ensures superior signal-to-noise at low light. Further key features are a 100% fill factor, an integrated exposure control, 100x antiblooming and precise sensor alignment. An advanced GenICam compliant user interface makes it easy to set up and control camera parameters.
The Piranha4 offers users a higher dynamic range for demanding applications such as flat panel inspection, printed circuit board inspection, solar cell inspection and web inspection (narrow and wide web). Image data is transferred via CameraLink interface Medium or Full.
The production of the current Piranha4 models is running at top speed, including the latest introduction – the colour model Piranha4 Color 4k with tri-linear sensor design. The camera offers a resolution of 4096x3 pixels at a maximum line rate up to 70 kHz. The DALSA Piranha4 2k model with 2048x2 pixels will soon go into production.
Teledyne DALSA is one of the largest companies serving the machine vision industry and is unique in that it is vertically integrated; from sensor design and manufacture, through image capture and processing, to software for imaging optimisations and analysis.
