High-speed linescan camera with wide dynamic rangeStemmer Imaging is offering the Teledyne DALSA Piranha4 8k, 70 kHz linescan camera. This is the first in a new range of linescan cameras that offers exceptional precision, speed and responsivity. This versatile camera can be used in a wide range of applications, such as flat panel inspection, printed circuit board inspection, web inspection (narrow and wide web), solar cell inspection, parcel sorting and high performance document scanning.

Utilising Teledyne DALSA’s latest high-performance CMOS dual linescan imager, the P4 8k features 8096 pixel resolution with increased line rates up to 70 kHz, delivering 573 MPixel/s through the CameraLink interface. The sensor architecture is designed for high throughput applications, with a high dynamic range and more than twice the line rate of previous models.

Teledyne DALSA's novel dual linescan technology combines signals from two parallel arrays of pixels to increase responsivity and reduce the effect of shot noise at low light levels. This gives a significantly improved signal to noise ratio to improve the dynamic range.

An advanced GenICamâ„¢ compliant interface makes the camera easy to set up, control, and integrate into production environments. Precise sensor alignment across X/Y/Z axes allows reliable, optimised performance in multi-camera systems. Camera functions such as exposure control, flat field correction, white balance and gain settings are fully programmable.
