DALSA Corporation today announced the expansion of its Piranha family of line scan cameras to include a Piranha Color model. The Piranha Color will be showcased during VISION 2006, November 7-9, at DALSA’s stand #4.0 616.
DALSA’s Piranha cameras are designed for high-speed and high-throughput applications, such as patterned color web (print) inspection, color document scanning, food inspection and printed circuit board inspection.
The Piranha Color features a proprietary tri-linear sensor technology, and is available in 2k or 4k resolutions with line rates up to 33 kHz.
The tri-linear sensor technology uses three sensors on one die - one for each color, red, green, and blue, and achieves three-pixel center-to-center line spacing which is claimed to result in excellent color performance. Minimal line spacing is called to provide a significant advantage and cost-savings when considered against more expensive prism-based color cameras and their required lensing.
Other features include built-in flat field correction and industry-standard Camera Link interface.
The Piranha Color will be available in Q1 2007.
