Shutterless Operation

The Calibir camera requires no mechanical shutter for calibration, meaning instant image output and no interruption for recalibration. The image output of the Calibir camera remains stable across time and temperature range, freeing your application from the inconvenience, size, and additional complexity of failure prone mechanical shutters.

Adaptive Contrast Enhancement

The Calibir platform features advanced image processing algorithms that adapt to the image content, optimizing contrast to show the finest details regardless of conditions or intra-scene variations. With no manual intervention required, the camera series delivers high quality images reliably, wherever and whenever you deploy it.

Radiometric Operation

The Calibir platform is capable of supporting radiometric operations to measure object temperatures ranging from -25˚C to +125˚C or even higher. With multiple target temperature zones and programmable alarms, radiometric Calibir can delivery measurement accuracy of ±3˚C or 3%.

Multi-Camera Sync

Calibir's GigE platform supports IEEE 1588 precise timing protocol, which combined with either an internal software command or an external hardware signal produces perfectly synchronized images from multiple cameras.

Flexible Output Options

The Calibir platform supports analog and digital output formats. Analog camera models support BNC or a straight 10-pin connector; digital camera models support GigE Vision output using RJ-45. The Calibir 640 core supports RGMII for digital output using a 60-pin connector and is also capable of supporting CPI (Camera Parallel Interface), BT656 and CSI-2 (Camera Serial Interface Ver. 2) formats*.

Export Controls

The Calibir platform is a "Dual Use" item under Group 1 (1-6.A.3.B.4.B) of the Canada Export Control List and Category 6 (6.A.3.B.4) under the Wassennaar Arrangement on Export Control for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies. As such, the Camera is subject to export control – export authorization is required to export the Camera from Canada, whether on a permanent or temporary basis.

Supported Lenses

The Calibir platform supports a variety of standard lenses, ranging from 7.5 to 100 mm focal length. For other lens configurations contact Teledyne DALSA sales
