High-sensitivity near-infrared camera

08 December 2011

Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company has recently introduced the Piranha HS NIR 8k camera. Features of this latest offering are said to include improved sensitivity in near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths and time delay and integration (TDI) technology.

The camera has been designed to meet the requirements of low light applications such as solar cell inspection, PCB/electronics inspection, large web applications, and food and drug inspection.

"Improved sensitivity in the near infrared region is critical to the success of equipment in a number of applications," said Xing-Fei He, senior product manager at Teledyne DALSA. "The Piranha HS NIR's TDI technology enables multiple exposures for orders of magnitude increases in sensitivity while maintaining low noise performance; this is ideal for high speed and low-noise applications."

The Piranha HS NIR extends Teledyne DALSA's existing High sensitivity (HS) product line and offers a cost-effective solution for imaging in near-infrared wavelengths from 700 to 1050 nanometers. It operates using selectable TDI stages, up to a maximum of 256, and has an area mode of operation for ease of alignment. The camera can be programmed with up to four user sets of coefficients and can utilize mirroring control, forward/reverse control, and flat field correction.
