Dalsa Intros Spyder3 GigE Vision-Compliant Camera
Spyder 3 gets new interface.
Waterloo, Ontario, Canada — Dalsa Corporation has introduced a GigE Vision-compliant version of its successful Spyder 3 camera. The Spyder 3 product family uses the company's patented dual line scan sensor technology that provides better responsivity, ease of use, and cost-effective solutions for many applications. Since its release, the Spyder 3 camera has become one of the most successful imaging products in the marketplace.

The camera has been designed into applications such as flat panel display inspection, postal sorting, wood and steel inspection, food inspection, web inspection, and many others.

GigE Vision is a camera interface standard that allows fast image transfer over the Gigabit Ethernet communication protocol.It enables users to easily integrate components from different vendors, reduce costs, and improve time-to-market for vision systems.

According to the company, the Spyder 3 line scan camera surpasses its predecessor, the Spyder 2, with three times more responsivity and twice the speed, without impacting noise levels. The camera's responsivity is particularly important in low lighting situations. The Spyder 3 offers 1k and 2k resolution with a 14 x 14µm pixel size. The camera has a maximum line rate of 68kHz and throughput of 80Mpixels/s. It is available with either GigE Vision-compliant or CameraLink interface.

The system provides seamless interoperation among compliant hardware and software from different vendors; high bandwidth (1000Mbps) for image transfer in real time up to 100 meters in length; standard Gigabit Ethernet network architecture allows single or multiple camera connection to single or multiple computers; low cost cables, and low cost integration.
