The wide range of line scan cameras by Schäfter+Kirchhoff for industrial use includes monochrome line scan cameras with 512 to 8160 pixels as well as color line scan cameras with up to 3x7600 pixels.
The color line scan cameras with triple-line-sensors have proven to be very useful for high-resolution surface inspection e.g. in the wood and print industry. It is complemented by the new camera type SK22368GTOC-LA with 3x 7456 pixels and a pixel size of 4.7 x 4.7 µm². The short sensor length of 35 mm allows choosing from a wide range of adequate objective lenses. The pixel frequency of this GigE color line scan camera is 120 MHz, maximum line frequency is 5,1 kHz.
For mobile applications the new lines scan camera type SK22500U3NEC-XC sets new standards concerning speed of data transfer for color line scan cameras. Its pixel frequency of 200 MHz reaches a speed-level that could only be achieved by line scan cameras with CameraLink interface before.
All GigE and USB3.0 line scan cameras by Schäfter+Kirchhoff profit from the new all 64-Bit SDK, even the cameras with monochrome sensors. Besides libraries and examples it includes new functions e.g. for loading ICC-profiles, ensuring color fidelity for image acquisition. Integration into LabVIEW is supported using a VI-library.
The line scan cameras by Schäfter+Kirchhoff, which include cameras with GigE, GigE Vision, CameraLink and USB3.0 interface are complemented by a large variety of lenses, mounting accessories and illumination. For highly-specialized applications for machine vision customized solutions are available. Examples include a scanner analyzing Filiform corrosion, as well as high resolution scanners for bore plugs examining minerals and ores or ice samples at polar temperatures of -50°C.
