DALSA Corporation (Waterloo, Ont., Canada) announces the availability of a GigE Vision™-compliant version of its successful Spyder 3 camera. The Spyder 3 product family uses DALSA's patented dual line scan sensor technology that provides better responsivity, ease of use, and cost-effective solutions for many applications. Since its release, the Spyder 3 camera has become one of the most successful imaging products in the marketplace. It has been designed into applications such as flat panel display inspection, postal sorting, wood and steel inspection, food inspection, web inspection, and many others. GigE Vision is a camera interface standard that allows fast image transfer over the Gigabit Ethernet communication protocol. DALSA's Spyder 3 line scan camera surpasses its predecessor, the Spyder 2, with three times more responsivity and twice the speed, without impacting noise levels. The camera's responsivity is particularly important in low lighting situations. The Spyder 3 offers 1k and 2k resolution with a 14x14 um pixel size. The camera has a maximum line rate of 68 kHz and throughput of 80 Mpixels/s. Customers can have their choice of either GigE Vision-compliant or CameraLink interface. The camera offers proven performance for OEMs and systems integrators to compete successfully in the machine vision industry. Key features and benefits include: Seamless interoperation among compliant hardware and software from different vendors; High bandwidth (1000 Mbps) for image transfer in real time up to 100 meters in length; Standard Gigabit Ethernet network architecture allows single or multiple camera connection to single or multiple computers; Low cost cables, and low cost integration.
