Its unique sensor design covers the entire field of view without missing pixels, providing a 100% seamless image without any interpolation.
Waterloo, Canada – November 30, 2023 – Teledyne DALSA is pleased to announce that its AxCIS™ family of high-speed and high-resolution fully integrated line scan imaging modules are in production. These easy-to-use Contact Image Sensors (CIS) combine sensors, lenses, and lights all-in-one, offering a lower cost inspection system for many demanding machine vision applications.
Powered by Teledyne's multiline CMOS image sensors, AxCIS delivers superior image quality, up to 120 kHz line rates for mono, or 60 kHz x 2 for HDR imaging, at a pixel size of 28 µm or 900 dpi resolution, so that defects can be detected with unprecedented precision.
Its unique sensor design covers the entire field of view without missing pixels, providing a 100% seamless image without any interpolation. HDR imaging is achieved using dual rows with independent exposure control, which enables better detectability for highly reflective materials with improved dynamic range. In addition to defect detection, its unique design also supports true metrology applications.
AxCIS has been designed with scalability to various fields of view with a single 24V power supply. With a small form factor and an optical path with an IP60 dust proof design, AxCIS can fit almost anywhere in your system, even with limited vertical clearance. Its Camera Link HS SFP+ fibreoptic interface delivers high throughput data over standard low-cost, long-length cables with immunity to EMI radiation for harsh industrial environments
