Alkeria Adds To Celera Camera Series

April 19, 2024
Polarization camera designed for machine vision applications such as inspections, sorting.

Alkeria has launched a new addition to its Celera P camera series, the C12SX-MP polarization camera. Equipped with a 12 MPixel Sony Pregius IMX253 global shutter sensor, this mono camera has 4112 x 3008 resolution, 3.45 µm x 3.45 µm pixel size, and a frame rate of 63 fps. The camera offers a number of features and capabilities, including angle of light polarization (AoLP), degree of light polarization (DoLP), virtual polarization angle, reflections reduction algorithm, four polarization angles for each superpixel, and parallel video streams from the same RAW image.

The camera also utilizes Alkeria’s FusionView technology, which maps AoLP to the Hue component of the HSV color space and DoLP to the Saturation component, giving a preview of these properties of light. Because the camera utilizes field-programmable gate array (FPGA) architecture, it can perform polarization detection directly on-board a computer without overloading it.

The camera comes with C-mount lens adapter, with an optional F-mount available, With the C-mount adapter, it has a footprint of 56 x 56 x 38.3 mm and weighs 150 g.  The camera has an operating temperature range of 0° to 50°C.

The C12SX-MP is designed for use in a wide array of machine vision applications, including inspections, sorting, and medical imaging.
