Dalsa has brought out the Piranha ES camera range for machine-vision applications.

With various models in the ES line, these Piranha cameras deliver cost-effective solutions with Time Delay and Integration (TDI) technology, which was also used in Dalsa’s HS (High Sensitivity) TDI cameras.

TDI is a method of line scanning that provides increased responsivity compared with single-line scanning methods.

TDI permits much greater scanning speeds in the same lighting condition, or allows reduced lighting levels and costs, while maintaining the same speeds.

The Piranha ES line combines speed, resolution and sensitivity to low-light applications, bridging the sensitivity gap between single-line cameras and the highest sensitivity Piranha HS series (selectable to a maximum of 96 stages).

This new product line features cameras with up to 8k resolution, 7 x 7um pixel sizes and with maximum line rates of 68kHz and throughput of 640Mpix/sec.

The Piranha ES cameras open new possibilities for high-performance cost-sensitive inspection, making it easy and cost-effective to switch from traditional line-scan to TDI.

The ES cameras offer up to 30-times greater responsivity than a single line-scan camera.

All Piranha ES cameras are capable of bi-directionality with selectable 32 or 16 stages.

The Piranha ES cameras are available in two speed-grades, ensuring the best camera throughput can be selected according to the application.

Programmable features position them among the most advanced cameras in the market.

Camera configuration is extremely flexible and the throughput and line rate are all software controllable.

They are ideally suited for applications such as flat-panel display, electronics manufacturing, document scanning, web inspection and general machine vision.

Key features and benefits of the Piranha ES cameras include: up to 30 times more responsivity than single line-scan cameras; high performance/price ratio; Dalsa’s TDI technology, which enables high volume production at lower manufacturing costs; lower upfront investment and on-going operational costs for lighting as a result of lower energy consumption; compatibility with Dalsa’s X64-CL Series and Xcelera-CL Series frame grabbers; and software-controllable camera configuration parameters.

The Piranha ES-8k is available immediately in two new models: a seven-micron 68kHz version and a seven-micron 34kHz version.

The Piranha ES-4k is available immediately in a seven-micron, 68kHz model.
