Vision Applications 
New Piranha4 2k color and monochrome cameras deliver industry's
highest line rates 
WATERLOO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/21/14 --  Editors Note:
There is a photo and a video associated with this press release. 
Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies (NYSE: TDY) company and
global leader in machine vision technology, today released two new
versions of its successful Piranha4(TM)series, expanding its flagship
line scan family to more than ten models. The new cameras have 2k
resolution and an advanced feature set to help customers solve
challenging machine vision inspection problems. The new models
combine advancements in Teledyne DALSA's CMOS image sensor technology
with exceptional signal-to-noise ratio for unparalleled high speed
monochrome and color imaging.  
"Our customers often have demanding applications," said Xing-Fei He,
Senior Product Manager for line scan imaging at Teledyne DALSA. "The
new Piranha4 2k cameras not only deliver high speed and responsivity,
they also include a great feature set including high dynamic range
mode. The color cameras can operate at any angle to the web,
providing greater flexibility for vision system designs." 
The new monochrome Piranha4 dual line scan camera delivers a maximum
line rate of 100 kHz in TDI mode, or 200 kHz in Area mode. The
Piranha4 2k trilinear model delivers a maximum line rate of 70 kHz.
Advanced features include sub-pixel spatial correction, lens and
shading correction, and flat field correction.  
Both the color and monochrome models use advanced chipsets to deliver
high throughput with extended Camera Link cable lengths to 30 meters.
The GenICam(TM) compliant interface makes the Piranha4 2k easy to set
up, control, and integrate. 
The Piranha4 2k models are ideal for high speed inspection
applications in both color and monochrome. Color applications include
100% print inspection, banknote inspection, package and label
inspection, and food inspection. Monochrome applications include
railway inspection, printing, wood, film, and label inspection, and
general machine vision applications. 
Product Details and Availability  
Key features and benefits include:  

--  Area mode enables the Piranha4 2k dual line scan camera to operate two
    times faster (200 kHz) for increased web speed, while the ability to
    operate in TDI mode (100 kHz) provides better responsivity and signal-
    to-noise ratio 
--  High dynamic range mode allows longer exposure time on one line and
    shorter on the second line to capture even more detail 
--  Sub-pixel spatial correction enables imaging in aspect ratios other than
    1:1 to increase web speed and allow precise color registration 
--  Multi-angle positioning allows the new color Piranha4 cameras to be
    positioned at any angle, in addition to being perpendicular to the web,
    providing greater flexibility for optimal system designs
