Teledyne DALSA, a key player in machine vision technology, has reported the availability of Falcon2 superior-performance area scan camera line in color format.
The Falcon2 Color cameras feature Teledyne DALSA’s CMOS imaging technology, which makes them suitable for digital cinema; 3D color imaging in industrial applications such as PCB inspection; medical applications; street mapping; and in-depth food inspection and electronic component.
The Falcon2 Color line comprises Falcon2 4M Color, Falcon2 8M Color, and Falcon2 12M Color. Falcon2 Color cameras allow for color inspection with superior image quality, fast frame rates and true global shutter functionality. Falcon2 4M and 8M Color cameras, specially designed for machine vision applications, are offered with selectable 1:1 or 4:3 aspect ratios. Falcon2 4M Color delivers 4 Mp at 168 fps and Falcon2 8M Color delivers 8 Mp at 90 fps, while Falcon2 12M Color delivers 12 Mp at 58 fps.
All three models are mechanically rugged as well as thermally stable, thus eliminating the need for external heat sinks. The Falcon2 Color cameras feature embedded image processing such as pixel responsivity adjustment and flat field correction.
The Falcon2 Color series delivers superior-quality images at high resolutions and frame rates. It demonstrates high full well capacity, thanks to its latest charge domain CMOS technology and enables better signal integrity. It provides better color balancing owing to individual color gain adjustment. Global shutter imaging enables it to capture moving objects.
The Falcon2 Color series complies with GenICam and is offered with Camera Link interface standard. It is also available with optional Camera Link HS to enable high bandwidth data transmission.
