Adimec introduced the QUARTZ Q-2A340 area scan camera, extending its
popular line of Quartz cameras based on high-performance CMOS sensors
from CMOSIS. This camera combines proven global shutter CMOS technology
with the proprietary Adimec True Accurate Imaging approach that results
in CCD-like image quality with unmatched speed. The 2 megapixel Q-2A340
transmits up to 340 frames per second (FPS) at a 2048 x 1088 resolution
with 10 bits per pixel over either a standard 10 tap Camera Link
interface or two standard coaxial cables using the dual CoaXPress
"Systems developers have a range of needs and a single camera cannot
meet all requirements. We continue to build on the proven foundation of
our QUARTZ family and the use of our True Accurate Imaging approach to
provide an optimal combination of speed and quality. This new addition
to the product line offers another way to take advantage of the Adimec
innovations in CMOS-based cameras, with a flexible and cost-effective
solution for a wide spectrum of vision applications," said Marcel
Dijkema, strategic product manager at Adimec.
As with other members of the QUARTZ family, the new camera offers a
range of quality-enhancing features. Advanced Flat Field
Correction (FFC) capabilities, even in color and with field calibration
support, deliver better image uniformity. The camera delivers
signal-to-noise improvements of up to 12 dB shot noise improvement
compared to off-the-shelf CMOS sensor performance. It also offers an
HDR mode for large scene dynamic capture capabilities.
The QUARTZ Q-2A340 uses True Accurate Imaging to manage inherent sensor
imperfections and maximize image uniformity, image reproducibility,
blemish corrections and signal to noise performance. True Accurate
Imaging improves the quality of images to provide accurate registration
of the smallest details.
The QUARTZ Q-2A340 camera is available in monochrome or color models,
and offers optional near infrared (NIR) capabilities. Customization of
the camera is supported to optimally fit the application needs.
