Piranha XL: Multi-line CMOS TDI delivers breakthrough performance

Teledyne DALSA presents our latest multi-line CMOS camera, delivering unprecedented speed and responsivity with low noise. Exposure control allows for seamless variable speed imaging down to stopped conditions on select models.

High-speed, high-bandwidth applications are where the Piranha XL, with its 16k resolution and up to 125 kHz line rate, really shines. The Piranha XL’s rock-solid, industry-standard CLHS interface and built-in Trigger to Image Reliability  safeguard every bit in the camera’s full throughput--up to 2.0 GB/s for monochrome models and 3.4 GB/s in color. Not only does CLHS inherently provide data resend and immunity from single bit errors, the camera paired with Teledyne DALSA’s  XTIUM Camera Link HS frame grabber, brings T2IR for monitoring, diagnostics, track and trace, and buffers to prevent data loss.

All this and Color too

The Piranha XL Color offers yet another performance leap with its truly unprecedented design and performance. With four advanced CMOS lines digitally summed for each color (RGB), the Piranha XL Color delivers stunning color sensivity, resolution, and throughput (up to 3.4 GB/s). This level of performance simply did not exist previously. Perfect for the most demanding applications, the Piranha XL delivers more detail in lower light at a higher line rate than any other color line scan camera.
