Teledyne DALSA Adds to Falcon Area Scan Camera Series

Improved resolution and functionality for high-performance image capture

Published: Thursday, November 3, 2022 - 11:00

(Teledyne DALSA: Waterloo, ON, Canada) -- Teledyne DALSA presents its new Falcon 4-CLHS M6200 and M8200 cameras, based on Teledyne e2v’s Emerald 37M and 67M monochrome sensors.

The new Falcon4-CLHS models deliver higher resolution, added functionality, and ease of use with a CLHS interface that has been engineered for industrial imaging applications requiring high-speed data transfer. These models can reach multiple thousands of frames per second in either partial scan mode or when using the Multi-ROI mode, with up to 32 distinct regions of interest. Additionally, the updated firmware enables appending detailed metadata to each ROI linked to different light sources, while new multi-ROI or moving ROI in sequencer or cycling modes deliver higher frame rates and added functionality.

“The Teledyne e2v Emerald 37M and 67M CMOS image sensors provide excellent performance and image quality for any machine vision applications that requires true high-performance imaging,” says Teledyne DALSA senior product manager Manny Romero. “With the addition of these latest Falcon4-CLHS models, we’re now pleased to offer a variety of cameras ranging from the high-speed 11.2M camera with frame rates up to 609 fps in full resolution, and these new high-resolution 37 MP and 67 MP cameras with frame rates of 120 fps and 90 fps, respectively, in full resolution.”

Falcon4-CLHS cameras leverage standard cabling technology such as CX4 and fiberoptic (AOC) cables to maximize length and speed. Falcon4-CLHS cameras are engineered to deliver high-speed, dependable results for applications such as industrial automation, flat-panel display inspection, semiconductor inspection, PCB-AOI (automated optical inspection), aerial imaging, and general machine-vision applications that require true high-performance imaging.

Key features include:
• Two new models are offered in 67M and 37M monochrome versions
• Multiple regions of interest (up to 32)
• Thousands of frames per second in partial scan mode (ROI)
• Series supports advanced high-performance camera features in a compact form factor for easy integration
• Updated firmware with new multi-ROI and moving ROI in sequencer or cycling modes
• Ability to append detailed metadata to each ROI with different light sources
• All-metal body with three-year warranty
