Vision 2014 - Teledyne DALSA to Demonstrate Camera Link HS Camera and Frame Grabber at VISION 2014

Visit Teledyne DALSA at the Vision Show, Booth D 54, Hall 1, Messe Stuttgart, Germany in from November 4-6.

WATERLOO, Ontario - October 21, 2014 - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and a global leader in machine vision, announced it will demonstrate its new Camera Link HS™-compatible products at the VISION show from November 4-6 at Messe Stuttgart in Germany. The company will preview its Piranha XL 16k CMOS TDI camera and its Xtium-CLHS PX4 frame grabber in Hall 1, Booth D 54 - these are some of the first products in the industry to take advantage of the AIA's Camera Link HS interface standard.

With CLHS interface, the Piranha XL 16k monochrome camera offers the latest breakthrough in multi-line CMOS technology, delivering unprecedented speed and responsivity with low noise. Employing Teledyne DALSA's advanced CMOS sensor architecture, the camera delivers 125 kHz line rate, with incredible responsivity, while maintaining low noise. Exposure control allows seamless operation from stop condition to maximum speed. The Piranha XL 16k delivers 2 GByte/sec data throughput using a single CX4 cable with long transmission distances and cable flexibility.

Senior Product Manager, Xing-Fei He explains, "The Piranha XL 16k camera, combined with the Xtium-CLHS frame grabber offers a complete solution for next generation vision systems such as FPD and PCB inspection. Using Teledyne DALSA's CMOS technology, the camera delivers incredible sensitivity for high speed imaging in light starved conditions."

The Xtium-CLHS PX4 frame grabber is a PCIe Gen 2 frame grabber for high-speed, high-bandwidth cameras that combines reliability and performance with up to 7 CLHS data lanes to capture aggregate data rates of 2.1GB/s. The Xtium series is engineered to meet the ever-increasing image resolution and faster frame rates of today's camera technology. Built on field-proven Xtium technology, this highly reliable and robust frame grabber is extremely cost effective and easy to integrate. The Xtium-CLHS PX4 offers high throughput and is fully backwards compatible with PCIe x4 slots; it also utilizes seamless multi-board synchronization to distribute images across multiple boards for faster processing.

"With the introduction of the Xtium-CLHS board, Teledyne DALSA has expanded the Xtium Series of PCI Express frame grabbers to meet the needs of new high speed CMOS cameras with reliable data capture of 2.1 GB/s in a single cable," said Inder Kohli, Product Manager at Teledyne DALSA. "With its flexible architecture, the Xtium-CLHS serves as an ideal platform for both current copper and emerging fiber optic solutions reaching cables distances beyond 100 meters and will support 3rd party cameras as they are introduced."

Both of these CLHS compatible products target machine vision OEM and are ideal for integration into flat panel, electronics, and semiconductor inspection systems, among other machine vision applications. The Piranha XL multi-line camera and Xtium-CLHS frame grabber are designed to help reduce inspection and manufacturing costs and enable the reliable transfer of information at high speeds without compromise.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
