4-Megapixel Area-Scan Cameras

AHRENSBURG, Germany, May 18, 2010 — Basler Vision Technologies is adding two new 4-megapixel models to its Aviator area-scan camera series. The new monochrome and color cameras operate at 31 fps with 2330 × 1750- pixel resolution and have a Camera Link interface.
They are equipped with Kodak’s latest KAI-4050 CCD state-of-the-art sensor that delivers high-quality images, even at fast capture rates. They provide progressive-scan readout and global shutter technology.
Because machine throughput can be increased due to the higher frame rate, the cameras are attractive for redesigning machines that currently use cameras based on earlier Kodak sensors. Semiconductor manufacturing, electronics manufacturing, metrology, medical imaging, and traffic applications can be optimized with a comparatively low investment.
The cameras offer optimum dynamic range and noise level, factors that are measured and documented during the production of each camera using automated EMVA 1288 sensitivity testing.
Both the register-based type of interface commonly used with Camera Link cameras and a C/C++ high level application programming interface on a proprietary pylon platform are offered. The pylon driver and software development kit (SDK) package support a more modern programming style and easier integration into software programs. The pylon SDK includes extensive documentation and more than 100 code samples for quick integration results.
