Alkeria's single-USB3 camera.

CELERA One camera series provides the same excellence in quality, flexibility, and performance as CELERA cameras, with the only exception of a single USB3 interface, while keeping the original extremely reduced dimensions and rugged design that make CELERA One cameras suitable for most applications: automated optical inspection, high-performance sorting systems, industrial metrology, microscopy, medical diagnostics, and machine vision.

CELERA One cameras are powered directly by the USB3 bus, with no need for external power adapters. USB3 provides the most cost-effective and widespread interface, pushing speed performances to the top level.

Versatile I/O

CELERA One provides a versatile I/O interface to control external devices such as strobe lights, encoders, etc. 2 input lines with a direct encoder interface, 2 output lines, and 1 input/output (RS422, RS644 LVDS, LVTTL). Its multipurpose I/O connector provides user I/O, line/frame triggering, and a direct encoder interface.

Powerful on-board image processing

CELERA One cameras provide powerful online user-controlled image processing: 8 AOI, independent LUTs, gamma correction, white balance, brightness, contrast, sharpness, saturation, and hue. Its control sequencing mechanism allows up to 64 different video settings to be applied to a chain of subsequent frames.

Driver and Software

An easy-to-use set of software API is available, which allows developers to quickly produce fast and clean code both on Windows and Linux, supporting all major programming languages such as Python, C#, VB, and C++ in the Visual Studio or QT environments.
Our Software Development Kit, provided with CELERA One cameras, is fully compatible with Cognex VisionPro, MVTech Halcon, NI LabView, and other major machine vision software for industrial applications.

firewireUSB3 interface

With a USB3 interface, CELERA One provides high performance in a cost-effective solution.

tinyTiny rugged design

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

sony ccdFast global-shutter CMOS technology

CMOSIS CMV series and SONY Pregius®* CMOS sensors allow a frame rate of up to 170 fps, even at full resolution.

lutsTriple Programmable Look-Up-Tables

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

smart dataSmart Data

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

ioVersatile I/O

With 2 inputs, 2 outputs, and 1 I/O, the CELERA series offers unprecedented flexibility for interfacing to outer world signals: direct encoder readout and strobed lightning have never been so easy.

triggerAdvanced triggering

With the CELERA series, users can choose from a long list of triggering mechanisms. The acquisition can be driven by 1/0 levels, edges, and encoder position. Furthermore, the frequency of triggering signals can be internally converted to salve even the most challenging problems.
