Fast and full featured 5 Megapixel GigE camera

18 Mar 2014

The introduction of the 5 MPixel Genie TS-M2560 industrial camera continues Teledyne DALSA’s objectives of making the Genie TS series the world’s most versatile GigE Vision camera. Featuring an Anafocus Lince 5M monochrome CMOS sensor, the Genie TS-M2560 brings new levels of performance with its high frame rate and increased onboard memory. Speeds of up to 51 frames per second (fps) at full resolution can be achieved in ‘fast mode’, and even higher frame rates in partial scan mode.

The industry's latest image sensor technology provides a resolution of 2560 x 2048 pixels with a true global shutter. In-sensor calibration allows for on- chip processing and photo correction at the sensor level to generate images of the highest quality.

Multiple Regions of Interest (ROI)

Unique to the Genie TS camera family is a feature that allows the capture of multiple Regions of Interest (ROI), significantly reducing the amount of data transferred and simultaneously allowing systems to focus on events that are critical to the inspection. This form of data reduction decreases the amount of information transferred, saving on bandwidth and minimizing data transfer along the GigE link, which is capable of transmitting data over standard CAT- 5e and CAT-6 cables to distances of up to 100 m.

Two image transfer schemes

In common with other models in the family, the Genie TS-M2560 offers two image transfer schemes to make the most of the sensor capabilities. In automatic mode, data is output to the PC as fast as the incoming sensor data up to GigE speed. There is also a manual mode in which the Genie supports a set of features to control the data coming out of the camera, allowing flow control and buffering of a large sequence of images within the camera. This also allows bursts of images to be captured to memory beyond the speed of the GigE Vision interface.

Suitable for a wide range of inspection applications

The Genie TS-M2560 monochrome camera is suitable for a wide range of challenging inspection applications including intelligent traffic systems (ITS), entertainment, medical, food and beverage inspection, and electronics and printed circuit board (PCB) inspection, and many others.
