  • Falcon 4M60 Camera
Jun 2007

WATERLOO, Ontario, June 12, 2007 -- The Falcon 4M60 area-scan camera now includes new features to extend its performance to the electronics inspection, machine vision and imaging markets, said manufacturer Dalsa Corp.

As a result of its robust design and exceptional imaging performance, the Falcon 4M60 has now become the choice of leading inspection OEMs, Dalsa said. The camera offers 4MP of resolution at 60 fps and offers a true global (nonrolling) shutter for smear-free imaging of fast-moving objects.

Providing better image quality ensures more reliable inspections, which leads to fewer product defects and greater system efficiency," said Dave Cochrane, Dalsa director of product marketing.

Dalsa's proprietary sensor technology also offers exceptional image quality and provides many modes of operation, the company said, including these new features:
  • Snapshot Mode -- The Falcon 4M60’s new snapshot mode provides full trigger-to-image reliability. This new feature, already available in Dalsa's frame grabber products, allows immediate image acquisition based on internal or external trigger events.
  • Controlled Integration Time -- The camera delivers well controlled exposures, accurately down to 10 µsec times, a critical feature for wafer inspection applications.
  • Highest Speed Transmission -- Camera drives high-speed signals via Camera Link beyond 10 m, reducing data errors, increasing reliability, and facilitating ease of integration.
  • Economical -- Based on Dalsa's proprietary sensor and camera technology, the Falcon solution is the most economical package for innovative inspection applications. Dalsa’s pricing for the Falcon series sets a new industry benchmark for value, according to the company.
Dalsa said the Falcon 4M60 is compatible with its Xcelera-CL PX4 frame grabbers for the PCI Express bus.

Additional models in the Falcon line, including a color version of the camera will be available later this year, the company said.

A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
1. A generic term for detector. 2. A complete optical/mechanical/electronic system that contains some form of radiation detector.
