Teledyne DALSA Spyder2 - Line scan cameras with CameraLink interface

The Teledyne DALSA Spyder2 is a family of cost effective, monochrome line scan cameras that use the CameraLink interface. Models are available with resolutions of 512, 1024 and 2048 pixels – all housed in a compact enclosure.

The Spyder2 surpasses its predecessor in responsivity and programmability, requires less lighting, and offers precise control over key performance variables such as gain and offset. With a single tap operating 40MHz, the Spyder2 provides the throughput your application requires with no compromise to image quality.

For those migrating from the original Spyder, the Spyder2 does not require a new optics design because pixel size remains unchanged from the original Spyder at 14µm.

In addition to its high performance and affordability, the Spyder2 also incorporates unique features such as flat field correction and CDS (Correlated Double Sampling).

All resolutions provide appropriate, readily-available standard lens options (C-mount and f-mount).
