Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company, today introduced two new models in its high-value, versatile high speed Genie Nano Camera Series. Spearheaded by the latest IMX273 sensors from the Sony Pregius CMOS family, these new Genie Nanos are designed around 1/3” CMOS image sensors that replace Sony’s soon-to-be discontinued CCD sensors. The new models are offered in 1.6 MP (1456 x 1088) resolution with a GigE Vision interface in either color or monochrome.
The Nano 1.6 MP models will be followed by two new additional 1/3” VGA Nano models to replace the ICX424 CCD-based cameras in Q4 2017. The new cameras are drop-in replacements for the original CCD-based models, at the same low cost but with a frame rate almost seven times faster —up to 160 fps in 1.6 MP and up to 400 fps in VGA.
The IMX273-based models feature a full frame electronic global shutter and a 3.45 µm pixel. Customers can expect high image quality, high resolution, and high-speed performance without distortion, and even faster throughput with Teledyne’s award-winning TurboDrive technology.
The Genie Nano series take full advantage of the Sapera™ LT Software Development Kit (SDK) and our Linux GigE-V Framework for embedded vision systems as well as our field proven Trigger-to-Image-Reliability™ framework for full system-level monitoring, control, and diagnostics from image capture through transfer to host memory.
- TurboDrive for fast frame rates and full image quality
- Full frame electronic global shutter function
- Small footprint / light weight: 21.2 mm x 29 mm x 44 mm/ 47g
- Wide temperature range (-20 to 60°C) for imaging in harsh environments
Cameras are available now for sampling, with production in Q4 2017. For sales enquiries, contact your local distributor or visit our contact page. For full resolution images, visit our online media kit.
