Teledyne DALSA Expands CMOS Line Scan Camera Family for High Speed Machine Vision Applications

New Piranha4 2k color and monochrome cameras deliver industry's highest line rates

WATERLOO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/21/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo and a video associated with this press release.

Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies (NYSE: TDY) company and global leader in machine vision technology, today released two new versions of its successful Piranha4™series, expanding its flagship line scan family to more than ten models. The new cameras have 2k resolution and an advanced feature set to help customers solve challenging machine vision inspection problems. The new models combine advancements in Teledyne DALSA's CMOS image sensor technology with exceptional signal-to-noise ratio for unparalleled high speed monochrome and color imaging.

"Our customers often have demanding applications," said Xing-Fei He, Senior Product Manager for line scan imaging at Teledyne DALSA. "The new Piranha4 2k cameras not only deliver high speed and responsivity, they also include a great feature set including high dynamic range mode. The color cameras can operate at any angle to the web, providing greater flexibility for vision system designs."

The new monochrome Piranha4 dual line scan camera delivers a maximum line rate of 100 kHz in TDI mode, or 200 kHz in Area mode. The Piranha4 2k trilinear model delivers a maximum line rate of 70 kHz. Advanced features include sub-pixel spatial correction, lens and shading correction, and flat field correction.

Both the color and monochrome models use advanced chipsets to deliver high throughput with extended Camera Link cable lengths to 30 meters. The GenICam™ compliant interface makes the Piranha4 2k easy to set up, control, and integrate.


The Piranha4 2k models are ideal for high speed inspection applications in both color and monochrome. Color applications include 100% print inspection, banknote inspection, package and label inspection, and food inspection. Monochrome applications include railway inspection, printing, wood, film, and label inspection, and general machine vision applications.

Product Details and Availability

Key features and benefits include:

--  Area mode enables the Piranha4 2k dual line scan camera to operate two
    times faster (200 kHz) for increased web speed, while the ability to
    operate in TDI mode (100 kHz) provides better responsivity and signal-
    to-noise ratio
--  High dynamic range mode allows longer exposure time on one line and
    shorter on the second line to capture even more detail
--  Sub-pixel spatial correction enables imaging in aspect ratios other than
    1:1 to increase web speed and allow precise color registration
--  Multi-angle positioning allows the new color Piranha4 cameras to be
    positioned at any angle, in addition to being perpendicular to the web,
    providing greater flexibility for optimal system designs

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
