The ES-4k-55 kHz
and the ES-4k-110 kHz
are members of the Piranha ES family - DALSA's
generation of high-sensitivity, Time Delay Integration cameras.
The Piranha ES family provides cost-effective, high-performance
solutions for low-light imaging with large resolutions
and unmatched throughput.
High sensitivity. High speed.
The 84k 55 kHs model delivers a maximum line
rate of 55 kHz and a throughput up to 320 MHz while the 4k
110 kHz model delivers line rates up to 110 kHz
and a throughput up to 640 MHz.
TDI is a method of line scanning which provides dramatically increased
responsivity compared to other video scanning methods and is based
on the concept of accumulating multiple exposures of the same (moving)
object, effectively increasing the integration time available to collect
incident light. The TDI linescan sensor is made up of multiple lines of
pixels. As an object passes under each line it is imaged and added to
the image taken under the previous line.
Camera configuration is extremely flexible and the number
of Camera Link taps, throughput, and line rate are all software controlled.
Both cameras are capable of bi-directionality with up to 16 stages
of selectability, while preventing over-exposure with DALSA's
If you need cost effective maximum performance
in low light, consider a Piranha ES.
