DALSA Extends Camera Family with new HM Series
Waterloo, Ontario Canada — DALSA Corporation has further expanded its Genie family of GigE Vision-compliant digital cameras with three new models, reportedly delivering exceptional image quality at high speeds. Designed specifically for high-speed industrial imaging applications, the compact Genie HM Series represents the integration of advanced sensor, camera and board image acquisition technologies, resulting in a single component. The Genie-HM640, HM1024 and HM1400 products capture image data at impressive speeds of up to 295 FPS in VGA resolution or 60 FPS at 1400 x 1024 resolutions.

Each camera is equipped with a high speed sensor designed by the company which enables exceptional image quality at this level of speed. The camera takes full advantage of Gigabit Ethernet technology, transmitting data over standard CAT-5e and CAT-6 cables to distances of up to 100m allowing for a greater distance between the camera and inspection system.

All of the cameras are certified GigE Vision compliant by the AIA (Automated Imaging Association). GigE Vision is the first standard to allow image transfer using low cost, standard cables over very long lengths. In addition to being GigE Vision compliant, the Genie HM Series is also GenICam compliant.

As soon as a camera is connected to the system, the Genie Framework software automatically identifies and communicates with the Sapera Essential environment. The Genie Framework software package contains advanced tools to facilitate faster application integration and set up, resulting in shorter system development time. Camera setup and configuration is performed using Sapera Essential's CamExpert which means operators are up and running and acquiring an image within minutes.

Genie HM Series cameras are supported by the company's Sapera Essential machine vision software — a value-add software imaging toolkit that bundles image acquisition and control with image processing tools to provide developers with the critical functionality to design, develop and deploy high-performance machine vision systems. The software permits monitoring of the behavior of various tasks such as triggering, image capture and data transfer to deliver trigger-to-image reliability.
