New features on the CMOS camera, Linea ML, include monochrome, color, and multispectral options.

The first models of Teledyne DALSA’s newest Linea ML cameras are now in full production. The new features on the CMOS camera, Linea ML, which include monochrome, color, and multispectral options can boost the abilities of how line scan cameras are used in machine vision applications.

The Linea ML 16k monochrome model operates in single or multiple rows at a max line rate of 300 kHz, or 5 GPix/sec data throughput. Sequential exposure with independent start and stop integration for each row allows versatile illumination configurations using the latest LED lighting technologies. The 16k color model provides high-speed, high-resolution, and high-fidelity RGB native colors without any interpolation.

“The Linea ML camera family offers versatile capabilities to meet the ever-demanding application requirements in machine vision today. In addition to mono and color imaging, the newest models include an HDR mode designed specifically to capture bright and dark scenes with improved dynamic range. Further, the time-division multifield imaging capability allows end-users to capture multiple images using brightfield, darkfield, backlight in a single scan,” said Xing-Fei He, senior product manager.

It is also possible to combine the Linea ML camera with the Xtium2 CLHS series of high-performance frame grabbers. Built on field-proven technology, the next generation CLHS fiber optic interface provides reliable and high throughput data transmission. Fiber optic cables lower system costs, offer longer cable lengths (up to 300 m), are immune to electromagnetic radiation, and are ideal for industrial environments. Teledyne DALSA’s Xtium2 family of high-performance frame grabbers feature the PCI Express Gen 3 x8 platform.

Key Features:
• High speed of up to 300 kHz line rate in 16k/8k resolutions, or 5 Gpix/sec
• Mono/HDR imaging with single or dual outputs
• Time-division multifield imaging in a single scan using sequential exposure
• Camera Link HS fiber optic interface for high reliability and long cable data transmission
• Lower system costs
