August 20, 2019 – Chromasens launched the chromaPIXA tri-linear CCD sensor linescan camera. The chromaPIXA captures 7.3k full resolution images from each of its three channels at line rates up to 29.7 kHz (29,700 lines/second), ensuring that every pixel is measured without relying on interpolation. Outputting in LAB format, the camera providesdetection of color flaws directly within the production process, and expands the options for designers of color linescan systems.
The chromaPIXA camera captures a spectrum of colors that match their appearance in nature, in all lighting conditions. Its tri-linear CCD sensor features sensor line synchronizationfor alignment of the R, G, and B channels. A color calibration system internally converts the sensor’s spectral response to match sRGB, eciRGB, AdobeRGB, CIE-L*a*b* or CIE-XYZ profile standards in realtime. Combined with Chromasens chromaCalc software, the camera ensures different devices produce identical results when presented with the same color data. In addition, continuous white balancing guarantees a stable white point to match the application's light source and take into account minor color shifts that are the result of aging lights, temperature, and ambient lighting conditions.
The chromaPIXA is built to withstand industrial environments. Its metal housing permits an operating range of 32°F to 140°F (0°C to 60°C) and dimensions of 102mm x 100mm x 77mm.
