WATERLOO, Canada – September 18, 2018 - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision technology, is pleased to introduce its newest Genie Nano cameras with eight new monochrome and color models built around the industry’s best performing SONY® image sensors. These industry-first 5-Gigabit GigE Vision cameras feature resolutions from 3.2Mpixels to 12Mpixels with more models to follow before the end of the year – including a 5Mpixel Polarized model.
Engineered for imaging applications that require high-speed data transfer, these new Nano models are an easy replacement for cameras built into current vision systems that rely on the existing GigE vision interface standard. These new Genie Nano models feature the brand new 5GBASE-T link speed.
IEEE 802.3bz-2016 is the expanded standard for Ethernet over twisted pair copper wire at speeds of 2.5 Gbit/s and 5 Gbit/s. This creates intermediate speeds between existing standards 1Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The resulting standards are named 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T. 5GBASE-T technology allows Ethernet links to offer greater flexibility with new data rates of up to 5Gbps over commonly deployed Cat5e cabling. The technology boosts data throughput of up to 100 meters through twisted pair copper cabling.
“Where customers using USB3 Vision are experiencing bandwidths of 360 to 400MB/sec,” commented Manny Romero, Senior Product Manager for Teledyne DALSA, “the Genie Nano 5GigE turns this on its head, with faster frame rates equivalent to 585MB/sec. Plus, with our award-winning TurboDrive technology, users can see an additional increase in bandwidth of 50%.”
Like all Genie Nano cameras, these new models are offered in a compact form and available in multiple resolutions ranging from 3.2MP to 12MP, with fast frame rates from 190 to 63 fps. System designers for industrial automation, electronics manufacturing, packaging, and semiconductor inspection, and general machine vision inspection, can expect a smooth integration path to extend the life of an existing system with little difficulty.
