Teledyne DALSA Announces Falcon2 Cameras
October 12, 2011 - Teledyne DALSA, announced Falcon2 high performance area scan camera series. The Falcon2 series is comprised of three high performance models, including the 12M model, which delivers high resolution. The Falcon2 incorporates CMOS imaging technology making these cameras ideal for more detailed inspection of objects in a shorter amount of time. Typical applications include automated optical inspection (AOI) for electronics manufacturing, semiconductor wafer inspection, flat panel display inspection, as well as solar panel inspection.
The Falcon2 series delivers fast frame rates, excellent image quality, and true global shutter operation. Unique to the machine vision market, our 8M and 12M Falcon2 cameras come with selectable aspect ratio. All three models are mechanically rugged and are thermally stable and thus do not require external heat sinks. The Falcon2 cameras come with embedded image processing, including FFC correction and sensor cosmetics enhancement. The Falcon2 series includes:
- Falcon2 4M, delivering 4 Megapixels at 168 frames per second,
- Falcon2 8M, delivering 8 Megapixels at 90 frames per second, and the
- Falcon2 12M, delivering 12 Megapixels at 58 frames per second.
Key Features and Benefits
- In camera image pre-processing (flat field correction, defective pixel concealment)
- Selectable 4:3 or 1:1 aspect ratios while maintaining the same overall resolution (for 8M and 4M models)
- Improved sensitivity
- Reduced dark noise levels and improved dark offset
- Global shutter for crisp capture of moving objects
- Customizable user settings
- GenICam compliant and available with Camera Link® interface standard for high bandwidth data transmission
Camera Details & Availability
The Falcon2 8M camera model will be available in October 2011 and monochrome 4M and 12M models will follow in November 2011. Color versions of the Falcon2 camera series will be available in January 2012.
“Our Falcon cameras are known for producing high quality images of fast-moving objects without smear or distortion,” said Behnam Rashidian, Senior Product Manager at Teledyne DALSA. “With the Falcon2 series, Teledyne DALSA delivers even greater resolution and speed while improving image quality as well.”
