area scan cameras

The technology of area scan cameras

Area scan cameras are used in most machine vision systems. They contain a large array of pixels that capture a 2D image of a particular scene in one exposure cycle with horizontal and vertical elements, for example in 640 x 480 pixels. Although they are easy to set up and align, they are not always effective when inspecting moving objects. Area scan cameras are best suited for applications where the object is stationary, even if only temporarily. You can create continuous images of continuous materials with a areascan camera by capturing overlapping images and by using software to accurately crop each individual image, eliminate distortion and merge the images in the right order.

You can also contact DVC for area scan cameras

DVC has a suitable camera for every machine vision application. Of course also if you are looking for an area scan camera. We currently offer area scan cameras from SVS-VISTEK, Basler and SONY. Click below to see which demo cameras we have in stock.

Digital tools to support you

DVC has access to a number of Basler tools that we would like to share. The tools can help you determine which interface, lens or frame rate you need.

1. Interface advisor

If you are not sure what digital camera interface to choose, you can use the Basler Interface Advisor. This tool helps you decide which interface best suits your individual needs: visit the interface advisor

2. Basler frame rate calculator

The Basler Frame Rate Calculator calculates the frame rate or line scan speed for your Basler areascan or linescan camera as soon as a few parameters are specified. For example, if you have the desire to define an area of interest (AOI). The tool determines the maximum framerate or line scan speed that can be achieved:  to the Frame Rate Calculator
