Machine vision inspection benefits from color support in cameras
Machine vision vendor Dalsa has added Falcon 4M60 and 4M30 Color CMOS cameras to its family of Falcon global shutter cameras.
Waterloo, Ontario, Canada— Machine vision vendor Dalsa has added Falcon 4M60 and 4M30 Color CMOS cameras to its family of Falcon global shutter cameras. The implementation of color imaging makes it even easier to find defects in these inspection applications including electronics inspection, semiconductor inspection, and industrial imaging.
The Falcon 4M60 is capable of running at 60 frames per second (fps) with 4 megapixel resolution. Falcon 4M60 and 4M30 cameras use Dalsa’s patented CMOS sensor technology with global shuttering to eliminate imaging issues, such as smearing or time displacement artifacts often associated with full frame, frame transfer, or rolling shutter cameras. In addition, features such as individual color gain and offset allow for white balancing of the image, and make this camera easy to use, according to the company.
“Providing better image quality together with color images ensures more reliable inspection, which leads to fewer product defects,” states Mark Butler, product manager.
Fully programmable with a Base or Medium Camera Link interface, the cameras incorporate vertical windowing, flat-field correction, exposure control, gain and offset adjustment, and antiblooming.
The Falcon 4M60/4M30 Color Cameras are compatible with DALSA’s X64-CL Series and Xcelera-CL Series of frame grabbers. List pricing for the Falcon 4M60 is $5,495 US.
