Teledyne DALSA Introduces Contact Image Sensors

For high-speed, high-resolution line-scan imaging

Published: Tuesday, October 25, 2022 - 11:00

(Teledyne DALSA: Waterloo, ON, Canada) -- Teledyne DALSA, a division of Teledyne Imaging, has announced AxCIS, a new family of high-speed and high-resolution, fully integrated line-scan imaging modules. These easy-to-use contact image sensors (CIS) combine sensors, lenses, and lights to offer a lower-cost inspection system for demanding machine vision applications.

AxCIS is powered by Teledyne’s new quadlinear CMOS image sensors, which deliver up to 120 kHz line rates for monochromatic and 60 kHz x 3 for color, at 900 dpi resolution, so defects can be detected with unprecedented precision. The unique staggered sensor design covers the whole field of view without missing pixels, providing a 100-percent seamless image without any interpolation. HDR imaging can be achieved using a dual exposure mode, which enables better detectability for highly reflective materials with improved dynamic range.
Initially available in widths of 400 mm, 800 mm (and other widths in increments of 100 mm), AxCIS can fit anywhere in your system, even with limited vertical clearance. Its camera-link HS SFP+ fiberoptic interface delivers high-resolution images over standard, low-cost, long-length cables (up to 300 m) with a high reliability of data transmission.
“AxCIS offers a fully integrated, easy-to-use, cost-effective line-scan imaging solution to meet the requirements of space-limited systems, such as print, printed circuit board, and web inspection,” says Xing-Fei He, Teledyne DALSA senior product manager. “Superior image quality and high-resolution 900 dpi imaging, combined with HDR mode, significantly improves detectability in the most demanding applications, including Li battery inspection.”

The new AxCIS is a high-speed, high-resolution line-scan solution for space-limited systems.
