DALSA Genie TS CMOSIS: Improved speed for machine vision camera range

12 Jun 2013

New high speed 2 Mpixel and 4 Mpixel CMOSIS monochrome sensors have been added to the popular Genie TS range of industrial vision cameras to provide extremely high sustained GigE Vision bandwidth. With Power over Ethernet for reduced cable complexity, the Genie TS camera platform delivers the widest, most powerful feature set available for GigE Vision cameras.

Teledyne DALSA’s "Burst Mode" feature allows for high image capture rates with a true global shutter while maintaining exceptional image quality. The 2 Mpixel (2048 x 1080) HD format version has a frame rate of 70 fps, with 37.5 fps for the 4 Mpixel (2048 x 2048) version.

Two image transfer schemes

The Genie TS offers two image transfer schemes to make the most of the sensor capabilities. In automatic mode, data is output to the PC as fast as the incoming sensor data up to GigE speed. There is also a manual mode in which the Genie supports a set of features to control the data coming out of the camera, allowing flow control and buffering of a large sequence of images within the camera.

Rich feature set

The extraordinarily rich feature set includes a wide dynamic range, achieved by combining multiple images at different exposures using the host computer within the user’s own application. Also built into the tough compact body of only (49 x 49 x 54) ?mm are connectors for motorised lens control with auto iris, zoom and focus functionality, RS-485 and RS-232 ports and much more.

Suited to various industrial vision applications

Ideally suited to a wide-range of industrial applications including semiconductor, electronics, food, packaging and other manufacturing and assembly processes, the Genie TS was also the first machine vision camera platform engineered for Intelligent Traffic/Transportation System applications.
