Line Scan with Area Scan Cameras

With the IDS Software Suite you can enable a line scan mode for specific GigE and USB 3 uEye models with CMOSIS, e2v or Sony sensors.

This allows you to operate the area scan camera as a line scan camera. With the “Vertical AOI merge mode” function, you also have the option to trigger not only images but also lines.

Area scan cameras capture a specific area as an overall image. This image is then processed. Line scan cameras, on the other hand, capture individual lines instead, which are then compiled by the respective software to form an image.

The main advantage of line scan cameras is their high speed. The advantage of area scan cameras versus line scan cameras is that an area scan camera is relatively easy to focus and to be adjusted. In addition, area scan cameras are normally much cheaper.

Depending on the application, the use of an area scan camera with line scan mode offers the advantage that the camera setup can be done very easily.
