CMOS industrial line scan camera
The Piranha4 8k CMOS camera is designed for automatic optical inspection and is uses bilinear line scan technology.
Teledyne Dalsa's Piranha4 8k Color CMOS line scan camera comes with 8k resolution and a 7 µm x 7 µm pixel size for optimized optical design. The Piranha4 series combines advancements in Teledyne Dalsa’s CMOS image sensor technology with strong signal-to-noise ratio for high speed inspection. The color version of this camera is ideal for automatic optical inspection of flat panel displays, electronics, printed material, solar cells, film, and large format web inspection.
The Piranha4 Color is based on Dalsa’s CMOS bilinear line scan technology with on-chip CDS and on-chip ADC. It offers low read noise and high full well capacity, resulting in a better dynamic range for demanding applications. Programmability features of the P4 8k Color camera include exposure control, gain setting, flat field correction, white balance, and color correction. Special algorithms allow defocusing capability in flat field correction and white balancing without the need of adjusting the optical lens. In addition, an advanced GenICam compliant interface makes the camera easier to setup, control, and integrate.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
