NECTA familynecta prod

NECTA Line Scan CMOS USB3 cameras provide unrivaled scan speed and quick system integration. Ultra-fast acquisition rate, extremely reduced dimensions and rugged design make NECTA cameras suitable for the most demanding applications requiring automated visual inspection, industrial metrology, high performance sorting, spectrometry, and machine-vision.

NECTA line scan camera is powered directly by the USB3 bus eliminating the need for external power adapters. USB 3.0 provides the most cost effective and widespread interface, pushing speed performances at the top.
It provides powerful on-line user-controlled image processing: AOI, independent LUTs, FPN (DSNU & PRNU), gamma correction, white balance, saturation, hue and black level offset calibration.
Its multipurpose I/O connector provides user I/O, line/frame triggering and direct encoder interface.

An easy-to-use set of software API is available, which allows developers to quickly produce fast and well readable code on Windows (VC++/C#/VB.Net) and Linux (C++).

NECTA accessories available upon request:

  • F-mount adapter
  • C-mount adapter (N2K and N4K-3 models only)
  • shielded I/O cable

 

 

Features

usb connettoreStandard USB 3 interface

Up to 5 GBps USB 3 interface allows easy interface to your PC, eliminating expensive framegrabbers and bulky cables.

tinyTiny rugged design

Small, ultra-lightweight, rugged aluminium machined high precision case allows maximum installation flexibility even in space constrained environments.

powerUltra-low power

Latest technology electronics achieves lowest power consumption ever (below 3W for all models).

shutterNew CMOS technology

AWAIBA Dragster CMOS sensors, featuring 12 bit A/D converter, up to 8192 pixels, up to 95 Klines/s.

lutsTriple programmable LUTs

Independent LUTs (one for each color) allow easy color thresholding, filtering and calibration for color-critical applications.

smartSmart data

Embedded timestamp, trigger counters, encoder position at line, latched input status and input change detectionallow perfect image-to-real world pairing.

ioVersatile I/O

With 2 inputs and two outputs and 1 I/O, NECTA series offers unprecedented flexibility for interfacing to outer world signals: line/frame triggering, direct encoder readout and strobed lighteninghave never been so easy.
