E2v, a provider of imaging solutions, has launched colour versions of its ELiiXA+ line scan cameras.
The new colour 16k/8k and 8k/4k cameras are based on e2v’s multi-line CMOS technology. They provide users with a true colour mode, making them suitable for high-resolution document scanning and the inspection of printing, flat panel displays, printed circuit boards, food, pharmaceutical and high quality raw material surfaces.
E2v has designed it’s ELiiXA+ camera family specifically to provide advanced speed, supreme sensitivity and high resolution. This is done by incorporating an innovative CMOS pixel architecture, combining the most advanced signal to noise ratio per individual pixel with multi-line architecture, to boost sensitivity by sequentially integrating the same object line with full exposure control.
The family was launched in 2011 with the 16k pixel monochrome camera (for advanced machine vision applications), followed by the 8k/4k pixel monochrome camera in 2012 (broadening the range of applications).
The two new ELiiXA+ colour cameras provide high line rates, up to 95,000 lines per second, and combine high response with an extremely low noise level; this delivers a high signal to noise ratio, even when short integration times are required or when illumination is limited. The 5μm pixel size is arranged in four active lines and a dual line filter configuration allows the cameras to be operated in several modes.
