To provide maximum value and performance across a range of vision inspection applications, Chromasens has launched its allPIXA evo 8K line scan camera integrating the cost-efficient Dual 10 GigE interface. Offering CCD quality at a CMOS price, the camera has a 16-line, 8K pixel resolution CMOS color sensor, enabling 2x TDI and maximum line rates of 3 x 90 kHz, which can be securely transmitted through fiber optic cables up to 300 meters in length. In ROI mode, transfer is even faster with the camera yielding speeds of up to 100 kHz.
The Chromasens allPIXA evo 8K is a GeniCam/GenCP compatible camera loaded with features supporting the most challenging color and mono line-scan vision tasks. These advancements include camera calibration and 4-channel color profiling, Smart encoder and trigger functions, flash features for multiple light conditions in one pass, multi-camera synchronization, and Float Binning that lets the user resize the resolution to non-integer ratios, such as "make 6k" or 7µm px. An outstanding signal-to-noise ratio of 41dB assures unparalleled quality in color imaging where dynamic range is critical to success.
The dual 10 GigE Vision standard makes it cost-effective to deploy the allPIXA evo 8K camera and achieve high speeds at a very low system cost. It is compatible with commercial off-the-shelf components from the 10 GigE environment, eliminating the expense and complexity of specialized parts, including network adapters, transceivers, lenses and cables. Depending on requirements, integrators can choose between a single 10 GigE configuration for speeds up to 48kHz, a dual 10 GigE setup for speeds up to 90 kHz, or connecting the camera to two PCs to split the processing for even higher speeds. Because fast integration is essential to reduced production downtime the allPIXA evo 8K comes with an intuitive graphical tool and an SDK for control and image capture in Microsoft® Windows® and Linux platforms.
In printing applications, the allPIXA evo 8K is capable of detecting defects in packaging and other print materials at speeds up to 11 meters per second with a one meter field-of-view, reducing waste, improving quality, and ensuring superior color accuracy. Chromasens is offering a bundled solution for the printing industry featuring the allPIXA evo 8K and Corona II LED illumination in dark field mode, along with a 50mm lens, adaptors and SDK to help customers quickly build an inspection system.
When used in the inspection of electrical vehicle batteries, the camera will recognize defects at each process step in manufacturing, and has the robust engineering needed in a harsh environment. Chromasens recommends bundling the allPIXA evo 8K with multiple Corona illumination sources to detect the smallest of imperfections, and a 60mm lens. At 30µm/px resolution the system can inspect EV batteries at 2.6 meters per second.
In addition, the allPIXA evo 8K is ideal for the inspection of PCBs, wafers, and food, and in a variety of high-speed surface and web applications.
