New Piranha4 2k color and monochrome cameras deliver industry's highest line rates
WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired) - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies (NYSE:TDY) company and global leader in machine vision technology, released two new Piranha4(tm) models, expanding its flagship line scan family to more than ten models. The cameras have 2k resolution and an advanced feature set to help solve challenging inspection problems and combine advancements in Teledyne DALSA's CMOS image sensor technology with exceptional signal-to-noise ratio for unparalleled high speed imaging.

"Our customers have demanding applications," said Xing-Fei He, Senior Product Manager. "The new 2k cameras deliver high speed and responsivity, with a feature set that includes high dynamic range mode. The color cameras can operate at any angle to the web, providing greater flexibility for new system designs."

The new monochrome Piranha4 dual line scan camera delivers maximum line rates of 100 kHz in TDI mode, or 200 kHz in Area mode. The trilinear model delivers a maximum line rate of 70 kHz. Advanced features include sub-pixel spatial correction, lens and shading correction, and flat field correction.

Both models use advanced chipsets to deliver high throughput and extended Camera Link cable lengths to 30 meters. The GenICam(tm) interface makes the cameras easy to set up, control, and integrate.


Piranha4 2k models are ideal for high speed inspection in both color and monochrome. Color applications include 100% print, banknote, package and label, and food inspection; monochrome applications include railway, printing, wood, film, and label inspection, and general machine vision applications.
