Line scan cameras are special industrial cameras that only record one light-sensitive line via a line sensor - in contrast to the two-dimensional sensor, which has a large number of lines. A line can be read out faster than an area. Line scan cameras provide higher line rates compared to area scan cameras. This requires significantly more light, which should be distributed evenly across the entire field of view.

Line scan cameras in combination with higly focused light provide reliable inspection results in machine vision systems for fast moving elements. The powerful Chromasens light modules with focused light offer an ideal solution for object inspection on conveyor belts in surface or quality control.

Chromasens offers color line scan cameras with trilinear/quadlinear CCD or CMOS line scan sensors that enable high-performance mono, color, color+NIR and SWIR imaging solutions.


What are the advantages of line scan technology?

  • Price/pixel - cost-effective implementation of image capture
  • Higher dynamic range than other image capture methods
  • High pixel fill-factor
  • Clear images with essentially endless objects
  • Targeted alignment of the lighting to the sensor line
  • Different illuminations possible simultaneously
  • Efficient image processing through the creation of a seamless image

Applications

  • Print & packaging inspection
  • surface inspection & measurement
  • Web inspection
  • Quality control
  • Sorting processes
  • Defect detection
  • glass and semiconductor inspection
  • Flat panel display inspection
  • Printed circuit board inspection
  • Food inspection
  • Battery inspection
  • High resolution document scanning
  • Barcode & Label scanning
  • General machine vision
