Teledyne Dalsa’s new area cameras feature Sony IMX250-MZR polarized image sensor
Teledyne Dalsa, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision technology, is pleased to introduce its newest Genie Nano camera built around the Sony Pregius 5.1M polarized image sensor. The Genie Nano-M2450-Polarized model features a monochrome quad polarization filter, resolution of 2448 x 2048 pixels, and image capture of 35 frames-per-second. With Teledyne Dalsa’s TurboDrive technology, frame rates can increase by as much as 50%.
With the addition of the Genie Nano polarized model, Teledyne Dalsa is the first company to offer polarization for both area and line scan (Piranha 4 polarization) cameras. Polarization enables detectability of stress, birefringence, through-reflection and glare from surfaces like glass, plastic, and metal. Sony’s newest image sensor, with its pixel-level polarizer structure, enables the detection of both the amount and angle of polarized light across a scene. Four different angled polarizers (90°, 45°, 135° and 0°) are positioned on each pixel, and every block of four pixels comprises a calculation unit.
“Offering polarization across both area and line scan imaging means greater choice for customers looking to resolve defects that are undetectable with traditional imaging for a growing number of applications,” commented Manny Romero, Senior Product Manager.
