Machine vision specialist Teledyne Dalsa has introduced its newest Genie Nano camera, built around the Sony Pregius 5.1M polarized image sensor. The Genie Nano-M2450-Polarized model features a monochrome quad polarization filter, resolution of 2448 x 2048 pixels, and image capture of 35 frames-per-second. With Teledyne Dalsa’s TurboDrive technology, frame rates can increase by as much as 50%.
With the addition of the Genie Nano polarized model, Teledyne Dalsa says it is the first company to offer polarization for both area and line scan (Piranha4 polarization) cameras. Polarization enables detectability of stress, birefringence, through-reflection and glare from surfaces like glass, plastic and metal. Sony’s newest image sensor, with its pixel-level polarizer structure, enables the detection of both the amount and angle of polarized light across a scene. Four different angled polarizers (90°, 45°, 135° and 0°) are positioned on each pixel, and every block of four pixels comprises a calculation unit.
- TurboDrive for fast frame rates and full image quality
