High-resolution contact image sensors

The new AxCIS is a high-speed, high-resolution line scan solution that is now available in colour

Teledyne DALSA has announced that its AxCIS family of high-speed and high-resolution fully integrated line scan imaging modules are now available in colour.

The company says these easy-to-use Contact Image Sensors (CIS) combine sensors, lenses, and lights all-in-one, offering a lower cost inspection system for many demanding machine vision applications including battery and print inspection.

The company says powered by Teledyne’s multiline CMOS image sensors, AxCIS delivers superior image quality with up to a 60 kHz x 3-line rate of native RGB colours, at a pixel size of 28 µm or 900 dpi resolution, so that defects can be detected with unprecedented precision and its unique sensor design covers the entire field of view without missing pixels, providing a 100% seamless image without any interpolation. In addition to defect detection, its design also supports true metrology applications.

AxCIS has been designed with scalability to various fields of view with a single 24V power supply. With a small form factor and an optical path with an IP50 dust proof design, AxCIS can fit almost anywhere in a system, even with limited vertical clearance. Its Camera Link HS SFP+ fibreoptic interface delivers high throughput data over standard low-cost, long-length cables with immunity to EMI radiation for harsh industrial environments.
