The Piranha HS NIR 8k camera images in the near-infrared using time delay and integration (TDI) technology for low-light applications such as solar cell inspection, PCB/electronics inspection, large web applications, and food and drug inspection. Improved sensitivity in NIR and 256 TDI stages provide enhanced electroluminescence at 1000-nm wavelengths of light. The camera delivers images of 8192 × 256 TDI pixels, with 320-Mpixel/s throughput and 34.3-kHz line rate via Camera Link interface.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE

Teledyne DALSA Presents its First High-Sensitivity Near-Infrared Camera

The Piranha HS NIR Line Scan Camera has Enhanced Quantum Efficiency in Near-infrared and features Time Delay and Integration Technology

Teledyne DALSA is pleased to announce the Piranha HS NIR 8k camera. Featuring improved sensitivity in near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths, the Piranha HS NIR benefits from time delay and integration (TDI) technology. The camera is 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 industry leading High Sensitivity (HS) product line and provides 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.
