Teledyne DALSA Introduces Low-cost, Fast GigE Area Scan Cameras for Machine Vision

Genie Nano cameras are suitable for a wide range of inspection applications including intelligent traffic systems (ITS), entertainment, medical, food and beverage inspection, and electronics and printed circuit board (PCB) inspection, among many others.

WATERLOO, Ontario - September 15, 2015 - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision technology, today announced the introduction of its Genie Nano series of affordable, easy-to-use GigE Vision cameras. The series combines industry-leading CMOS image sensors, including the Sony Pregius and On Semiconductor's Python, with a fully optimized camera platform to deliver high frame rates and powerful features in a small, robust body.


The first four models in the Genie Nano series, the M1920, C1920, M1940 and C1940 are built around the Sony Pregius 2 Megapixel IMX249 and IMX174 CMOS image sensors respectively. Available in monochrome and color with additional resolutions to follow, Genie Nano cameras help ensure high performance and reliability with their unique feature set. Designed for industrial imaging applications with Teledyne DALSA's patent-pending TurboDrive technology, these latest Genies are capable of breakthrough data transfer at 2 or even 3 times the standard GigE Visionrates. The Genie Nano series also takes full advantage of the Sapera LT Software Development Kit (SDK) and field proven Trigger-to-Image-Reliability framework for full system-level monitoring, control, and diagnostics from image capture through transfer to host memory.

Key Features:

* TurboDrive allows fast frame rates and full image quality
* Trigger-to-Image-Reliability
* Small footprint for tight spaces - 44mm x 29mm x 21mm
* Wide temperature range (-20 to 60c) housing for imaging in harsh environments
* 2 inputs/2 opto-coupled outputs for easy integration and deployment
* Light weight - only 46 grams

"We're pleased to offer customers affordability and performance in such a small, robust package that is a breakthrough on so many levels," commented Manny Romero, Senior Product Manager for Teledyne DALSA. "The Genie Nano series is engineered to meet the high expectations of OEM and System Integrators, and features our lowest price ever."

Genie Nano cameras are suitable for a wide range of inspection applications including intelligent traffic systems (ITS), entertainment, medical, food and beverage inspection, and electronics and printed circuit board (PCB) inspection, among many others.
