Dalsa line scan polarization camera makes invisible visible!

Teledyne Dalsa has released the first line scan polarization camera for machine vision.  The Piranha4 polarization camera provides the capability of detecting , stress, surface roughness,  birefringence and physical properties undetectable with conventional imaging making the invisible visible! This unique technique uses four polarization channels with a color line scan camera solving various applications, but …

Learn how liquid lenses keep continuous focus on machine vision cameras when the working distance changes.

Optotune focus tunable lenses

Optotune lenses solve a machine vision industry problem!  Machine Vision applications requiring the inspection of objects at various heights can become a challenge as normal lens have limited depth of field.  Objects outside of the depth of field become out of focus, limiting the vision application.  Historically, a lens with motorized focus adjustment would be …

10 key things you need to know when selecting a machine vision lens

Improper selection of the correct quality and type of machine vision lens can make your camera selection useless! In many cases, we see customers attempting to choose a low quality lens for a camera that really needs quality optics to resolve the pixel sizes. Conversely, we also see customers trying to over specify a lens, where you …

White Paper – Key benefits in using LED lighting controllers for machine vision applications

  A successful, cost-effective application of a Machine Vision system is often dependent on the interplay of many individual elements, including machine vision lighting.  As much as an Light Emitting Diode (LED) appears to be a basic electronic component, driving it in a fashion suitable for machine vision applications is non-trivial. LED’s have become the …
