Advanced Line Scan Cameras Win Gold in Vision Systems Design 2015 Innovators Awards Program

Piranha4 Multispectral camera and its Piranha XL 16k camera were recognized among the best in the industry by the judges of the Vision Systems Design 2015 Innovators Awards program.

Waterloo, Ontario - March 27, 2015 - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision components and solutions, announced today that its Piranha4 Multispectral camera and its Piranha XL 16k camera were recognized among the best in the industry by the judges of the Vision Systems Design 2015 Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of esteemed experts from system integrator and end-user companies.


"On behalf of the Vision Systems Design Innovator Awards, I would like to congratulate Teledyne DALSA on their Gold awards," said Vision Systems Design Group Publisher Alan Bergstein. "This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most innovative products and services in the vision and image processing industry. The team at Teledyne DALSA should be very proud."

Teledyne DALSA received two Gold level awards for the following:

Piranha4 Multispectral Quadlinear Camera

Based on Teledyne DALSA's unique line scan CMOS sensor architecture, the Piranha4 line scan cameras deliver the highest line rates in the industry with outstanding signal-to-noise performance. The Piranha4 Multispectral camera provides independent RGB+NIR outputs using wafer level coated interference filter technology. In the print inspection industry, many system designers today use one color camera to inspect color images and a separate NIR camera to inspect security inks. This complicates the design and significantly increases the cost of these systems. With The Piranha4 multispectral camera, system designers can use a single camera, dramatically simplifying system design while reducing costs.

Piranha XL 16k Camera

The new Piranha XL 16k uses a 12 line CMOS image sensor to achieve both high responsivity and exposure control in a small form factor. With a max line rate of 125kHz at full 16k/5um resolution the camera can operate in either 4, 8, or 12 line mode using the next generation Camera Link HS interface that delivers over 2 GByte/sec data throughput with a single cable. Piranha XL 16k is the first CMOS TDI camera that offers speed, resolution, and responsivity comparable to CCD Time Delay and Integration (TDI) devices.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
