EC: Piranha HS NIR 8k Camera
Machine and Embedded Control - Machine vision, barcode readers: The Piranha HS NIR camera is designed to meet the requirements of low light applications such as solar cell inspection, PCB / electronics inspection, large web applications, and food and drug inspection. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice Awards Honorable Mention.
The Piranha HS NIR extends Teledyne Dalsa's industry leading High Sensitivity(HS) product line and provides a cost-effective solution for imaging in near-infrared wavelengths from 700 to 1050 nanometers. It operates using selectable TDI stages, up to a maximum of 256, and has an area mode of operation for ease of alignment. The camera can be programmed with up to four user sets of coefficients and can use mirroring control, forward/reverse control, and flat field correction.
- Enhanced sensitivity in NIR and 256 TDI stages provide excellent electroluminescence at 1000 nm wavelengths of light
- High resolution images of 8192 x 256 TDI pixels
- 320 Mpix/s throughput and 34.3 kHz line rate allow faster inspection times and higher productivity
- Bidirectional operation greatly reduces cost by simplifying inspection process
- 100x anti-blooming
- Camera Link interface.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
