e2v, a leading global provider of high performance imaging solutions, is launching the ELiiXA+ 8k/4k at Vision 2012, in Stuttgart, Germany. Based on e2v multi-line CMOS technology, this new camera is the second addition to e2v’s successful ELiiXA+ industrial line scan camera family and is aimed at a broad range of applications, providing high performance, ease of use and robustness at a competitive price.
e2v’s ELiiXA+ camera family is designed specifically to provide advanced speed, supreme sensitivity and high resolution by incorporating an innovative CMOS pixel architecture, combining the most advanced signal to noise ratio per individual pixel, and multi-line architecture to boost sensitivity further by sequentially integrating the same object line with full exposure control. The family was launched last year with a 16k pixel camera aimed at advanced machine vision applications.
The new ELiiXA+ 8k/4k brings high performance sensor technology to a broader range of applications, such as the inspection of raw material surfaces and general web material, the sorting of parcel and postal documents, the scanning of print and high resolution documents as well as the advanced inspection of flat panel displays, printed circuit boards and solar cells. The new camera provides the following features:
e2v’s ELiiXA+ 8k/4k camera also benefits from a compact design with a 41mm active sensor that can be operated in an 8k or 4k pixel mode depending on the user settings. The camera is cost effective to implement as the sensor length is compatible with the readily available and affordable F-mount lenses which perfectly matches the 5µm pixel size. Two models of the new camera are available with either Medium Camera Link interface or Full/Deca Camera Link interface.
Sébastien Teysseyre, e2v’s marketing manager for industrial cameras said “With the new ELiiXA+ 8k/4k, e2v is setting new standards for machine vision line scan cameras. This new camera family competes directly with single/dual line scan camera technology and CCD TDI solutions, but the ELiiXA+ cameras have the advantage of delivering higher product performance with fewer integration constraints. Our R&D team have worked hard to develop e2v’s new multi-line CMOS technology so that it achieves 100,000 lines/sec but still delivers high sensitivity. This is done by using the sensors 4 active lines whilst at the same time keeping the power consumption below 7W and giving the user full control over the exposure time.”
The camera will be unveiled at e2v’s booth (hall1, booth E22) at Vision 2012, Stuttgart Germany from 6th- 8th November 2012.
