e2v has launched color versions of its market leading ELiiXA+ line scan cameras. The new colour 16k/8k and 8k/4k cameras are based on e2v’s multi-line CMOS technology. They provide users with a true color mode, making them ideal for high resolution document scanning and the inspection of printing, flat panel displays, printed circuit boards, food, pharmaceutical and high quality raw material surfaces.
ELiiXA+ camera family was launched in 2011 with the 16k pixel monochrome camera (for advanced machine vision applications), followed by the 8k/4k pixel monochrome camera in 2012 (broadening the range of applications).
The two new ELiiXA+ color cameras provide high line rates, up to 95,000 lines per second, and feature high response and low noise level. The 5μm pixel size is arranged in four active lines and a dual line filter configuration allows the cameras to be operated in several modes:
True color mode with 10µm RGB pixels to provide equivalent color fidelity to 10µm pixel tri-linear solutions with advanced immunity to web variation.
Full definition mode with a unique 16,384 RGB pixel resolution.
The16k/8k pixel resolution model is available with a CoaXPress interface, whilst the 8k/4k model is interfaced through Camera Link.
Sebastien Teysseyre, e2v’s marketing manager for industrial cameras said “The e2v multi-line CMOS technology available in the ELiiXA+ camera family has been quickly adopted by the market because of its unique capability to simultaneously deliver advanced performance combined with high levels of versatility for system integration. Adding these two new color models to the ELiiXA+ family supports the market in the ever increasing need for color imaging, setting new standard for industrial imaging.”
