Machine vision specialist Teledyne Dalsa, a Teledyne Technologies company, has announced the addition of the new polarization camera to its Piranha family.
First announced in Q2 2017, the Piranha4 polarization camera is now in full production. Polarization imaging significantly enhances detection capability in many applications and represents a new addition to system designers’ machine vision toolboxes.
The Piranha4-2k polarization camera uses Teledyne Dalsa’s advanced quadlinear CMOS image sensor with nanowire micro-polarizer filters. It captures multiple native polarization state data without any interpolation. With a maximum line rate of 70 kHz, the camera outputs independent images of 0°(s), 90° (p), and 135° polarization states as well as an unfiltered channel.
The Piranha4 Polarization camera recieved a Platinum Award and the highest level of achievement in Vision Systems Design’s Innovators Awards 2017.
- Built on Teledyne Dalsa’s advanced CMOS sensors
- Tri-polarization states plus an unfiltered channel
- 70 kHz max line rate
- 8, 10 or 12 bit depth selectable.
If used with Teledyne Dalsa’s frame grabbers, customers will have the advantage of the built-in Trigger-to-Image Reliability (T2IR) framework, which safeguards every bit in the camera’s full throughput.
