High-performance colour versions of Falcon2 machine vision cameras

13 Feb 2013

STEMMER IMAGING has added the new colour versions of the Falcon2 camera from Teledyne DALSA to its range of industrial vision cameras. Available in 4 MPixel, 8 MPixel and 12 MPixel versions, these mechanically rugged and thermally stable cameras incorporate Teledyne DALSA’s latest in-house CMOS sensor technology to give outstanding image quality and colour accuracy.

Fast scan rates and true global shutter operation make the Falcon2 series ideally suited to imaging fast-moving objects without smear or distortion. These capabilities, combined with their high imaging resolution makes them particularly well suited to detailed electronic component and food inspection, street mapping, medical applications, 3D colour imaging in industrial applications (PCB inspection).

GenICam compliant, CameraLink interface

The Falcon2 cameras are fully GenICam compliant, with a CameraLink interface. A comprehensive feature set provides great flexibility, with programmable exposure time via the Camera Link interface or external hardware signals; individual colour gain adjustment for better colour balancing, and in-camera image pre-processing including flat field correction and pixel responsivity adjustment. In addition, the 8M and 4M versions offer the unique capability of operating at 4:3 or 1:1 aspect ratios whilst maintaining the same resolution.
