Multispectral imaging: Getting the best of both worlds - RGB and mono output

Go to Piranha4 2K 70kHz
Go to Line Scan cameras
Go to Teledyne DALSA

Need the precision of colour AND sensitivity of monochrome
as well as higher throughput?

Meet your demanding imaging need with Teledyne DALSA's Piranha4 2K quadlinear, multispectral camera  

Delivering the highest line rates in the industry with outstanding signal-to-noise performance, the Piranha4's Colour quadlinear CMOS sensor brings the best of both worlds by providing RGB imaging as well as a separate monochrome channel while also enhancing inspection capability in certain demanding applications. Minimum spatial separation provides the maximum in colour accuracy and performance.

In addition to its incredible speed, the Piranha4 also offers advanced features including subpixel spatial correction, lens and shading correction, and flat field correction.

Independent gain and exposure control for each colour enable the tuning of spectral responsivity. Sub-pixel spatial correction allows precise colour registration in any sampling scenarios. The camera even allows up to four simultaneous areas of interest, which allow you to focus on specific areas of an image and ignore the rest, reducing processing bandwidth and even simplifying cabling.

The camera delivers a throughput of 573 MPix/s using Camera Link, and advanced chip sets allow cable lengths of 15 meters and beyond. The GenICam compliant interface makes the camera easier to set up, control, and integrate.
