The Teledyne DALSA Falcon series has been supplemented by
the release of four new Falcon colour cameras in their XDR and HG series,
optimised for high dynamic range (XDR models) and high sensitivity
(HG models), with resolutions from VGA to 4 megapixels and frame rates up to
The Falcon XDR and HG series are distinct in the market featuring 120
frames-per-second one-megapixel models and 300 frames-per-second VGA models .
Further differentiation from the competition is their compact size
(44mm cube), low power and PoCL(Power Over
CameraLink) capacity which reduces cabling requirements to a single
High-speed , smear-free imaging is the hallmark of the Falcon cameras and to
meet the need for imaging fast-moving objects without smear or distortion,
Teledyne DALSA offers true global shutter CMOS and
interline transfer CCDs, both technologies being able to "stop the
action" through electronic shuttering.
very high frame rates at multiple resolutions, (VGA to 1.4 M),
the cameras are more suited to applications that need colour with fast frame
rates and can be deployed in applications that include : **electronic
PCB inspection**print inspection (registration control) ** fruit
inspection** traffic applications and many more.
The colour Falcon series can also be successfully used in industrial metrology
(gauging) and other general machine vision applications, where more than the
standard 60 fps is required.
Some specific examples where the Falcon cameras have been successfully deployed
