Teledyne DALSA’s Newest Genie Nano camera features ON Semi’s 18Mpixel Sensor

WATERLOO, Canada  – February 21, 2017  - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision technology, today introduced a new model to its high-value Genie™ Nano GigE Vision camera series. Built around ON Semiconductor’s 18 Megapixel, backside illuminated (BSI) image sensor, the new model (C4900) delivers system integrators and OEMs greater choice from a growing number of Genie Nano models powered by more than 40 industry-leading CMOS image sensors.

Engineered for improved network integration, the newest model features ON-Semiconductor’s AR1820HS image sensor. This 1/2.3-inch CMOS active-pixel digital image sensor, with 1.25x1.25μm A-PixHS™ enables a new class of high performance rolling shutter machine vision camera.

Genie Nano cameras combine standard gigabit Ethernet technology (supporting GigE Vision 1.2) with the Teledyne DALSA Trigger-to-Image-Reliability framework to dependably capture and transfer images from the camera to the host PC. Genie Nano cameras are available in a number of models implementing different sensors, image resolutions, and feature sets, in monochrome or color versions.

Developed for an expanding number of industrial imaging applications, including intelligent traffic systems, printed circuit board inspection and metrology, customers can expect high picture quality, high resolution, and high-speed imaging without distortion, and even faster throughput with Teledyne’s award-winning TurboDrive technology.

The Genie Nano series take full advantage of the Sapera™ LT Software Development Kit (SDK) and field proven Trigger-to-Image-Reliability framework for full system-level monitoring, control, and diagnostics from image capture through transfer to host memory.

Key Features:

  • Trigger-to-Image-Reliability for easy system control and debugging
  • Electronic Rolling Shutter (ERS) with Global Reset Release (GRR) function
  • Small footprint / light weight: 44mm x 29mm x 21mm / 46 grams
  • Wide temperature range (-20 to 60°C) for imaging in harsh environments
  • Support for Linux operating platform

Genie Nano cameras feature a robust design backed by a 3-year warranty. Please visit the Genie Nano product page for more information. For sales enquiries, visit our contact page, and for full resolution images, our online media kit.
