October 28, 2010 - DALSA announces Genie HC Series, built for high speed color acquisition. Typical applications for the Genie HC series include electronic manufacturing inspection and food inspection. Genie HC series is comprised of three high-speed, color camera models:

  • Genie HC640 up to 300 fps in full resolution (640 x 480)
  • Genie HC1024 up to 117 fps in full resolution (1024 x 768)
  • Genie HC1400 up to 75 fps in full resolution (1400 x 1024)
Additional features include global electronic shutter with exposure control and on-board flat-field correction to produce crisp, clear images. The GigE Vision camera acts as a single machine vision component – integrating both advanced camera and board image acquisition technologies in one small package. All Genie cameras feature value added functionality designed specifically for imaging and machine vision applications. All features are easily accessible with DALSA’s advanced software tools. These tools deliver superior image capture, performance, and control.Features and Benefits

GigE VisionLike all Genie cameras, the Genie HC Series is certified GigE Vision compliant, and is based on the AIA (Automated Imaging Association) GigE Vision Standard to directly link the camera to a PC. This new series of Genie cameras takes full advantage of Gigabit Ethernet technology, transmitting data over standard CAT-5e and CAT-6 cables to distances of up to 100m allowing for a greater distance between the camera and inspection system. Software AdvantageThe Genie HC cameras are supported by Sapera Essential software and its Genie Framework package for fast and simple camera set-up – from initial set-up to grabbing images in minutes. Moreover, the Genie Framework employs advanced Trigger-to-Image Reliability engineering, significantly accelerating application development and deployment time by providing developers with a 360º view of the entire acquisition process.
