SAPPHIRE series:

High resolution CMOS global shutter cameras

The Adimec SAPPHIRE series combines the highest resolutions at maximum frame speeds together with a superior image quality supporting your demanding inspection equipment. High image quality is guaranteed through factory calibrated camera uniformity corrections, multi-set Flat Field Corrections (FFC) for in system non-uniformities and factory calibrated defect pixel corrections.

 

The SAPPHIRE series simplifies system design through optimal thermal designs and tool matching support with repeatable cameras using the CoaXPress interface. SAPPHIRE cameras can be customized to meet your specific system application and architecture requirements.

Advantages

Images with minimal blemishes

The Sapphire series eliminates typical large area scan artifacts present in VITA 25K via Active Sensor Control, a practical and easy to use embedded semi-automatic calibration function. It calibrates the camera without involving up-loading images to a PC. With Active Sensor Control the 25 megapixel technology can optimally be used for accurate inspection and metrology applications.

High uniformity by flat field correction

The embedded global flat field correction (real-time FFC per pixel) allows to derive a high uniform image regardless of non-uniform lighting exposure and distortions in the optical path towards the sensor. This embedded functionality offers performance enhancement while off-loading processing needs from the frame grabber and simplifies development efforts at system integration.

Regions of interest

Using the region of interest in this camera does not only increase the frame rate but offers new possibilities to capture images. The combination of large sensor width (up to 5k per line) and the ROI functionality of the image sensor creates new area scan camera applications you never thought of before. Contact us to discuss these new possibilities.

No PC required

Both Active Sensor Control and Flat Field Corrections are easy to use through the calibration algorithms that are embedded in the camera and can be easily applied in the field. Storage of the FFC calibration map in the camera supports re-use of the FFC set(s) over time with immediate availability after camera power-on.
