Aug. 20, 2015 – Chromasens has announced the allPIXA pro, calling it the “world’s fastest and most powerful” colour line scan CCD camera for high-speed machine vision applications on the market.
The allPIXA pro, with line rates up to 87kHz in standard models and up to 148 kHz in special OEM configurations, allows for a maximum 300-per-cent increase in speed compared to conventional CCD line scan cameras when used in CameraLink Full mode, according to the company. It also boasts improved responsivity thanks to upgraded tri-linear CCD sensors. Several models are available in resolutions from 2048 x 3 to 7300 x 3 pixels. “Continuous white balancing compensates for minute colour differences in different types of light, while a full range of programmable features offer precise control over key performance variables,” says the company. The camera is suitable for print verification, tile inspection, food and fruit sorting, flat panel inspection, and other machine vision applications.
