Teledyne DALSA Announces Production of Industry’s First Line Scan Polarization Camera:
Teledyne DALSA announced production of the new Polarization camera to its industry-leading Piranha™ family. First announced in Q2 2017, the Piranha4 Polarization camera is now in full production with improved performance. Polarization imaging significantly enhances detection capability in many demanding applications and represents a powerful new addition to system designers’ machine vision toolboxes.
The Piranha4-2k Polarization camera uses Teledyne DALSA’s advanced quadlinear CMOS image sensor with nanowire micro-polarizer filters. It captures multiple native polarization state data without any interpolation. With a maximum line rate of 70 kHz, the camera outputs independent images of 0°(s), 90° (p), and 135° polarization states as well as an unfiltered channel.
• Three native polarization states plus an unfiltered channel
• Line rates up to 70 kHz
• Compact camera body
• Sub-pixel spatial correction
• Horizontal parallax correction
• Multiple regions of interest for calibration and data reduction
• 8, 10, or 12-bit output
• Flat field and lens shading correction
• GenICan or ASCII-compliant interfacing
If used with Teledyne DALSA’s frame grabbers, customers will have the advantage of the field-proven built-in Trigger to Image Reliability (T2IR) framework, which safeguards every bit in the camera’s full throughput.
