Alkeria's Single-USB3 camera.

CELERA One camera series provide the same excellence in quality, flexibility and performances of 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 eliminating the need for external power adapters. USB3 provides the most cost effective and widespread interface, pushing speed performances at the top.

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 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 direct encoder interface.

Powerful on-board image processing

CELERA One cameras provide powerful on-line 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, C++ in Visual Studio or QT environment.
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 application.

firewireUSB3 interface

With USB3 interface, CELERA One provides high performances 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 framerate up to 170 fps even at full resolution.

lutsTriple Programmable Look-Up-Tables

Independent LUTs (one for each color) allow easy color thresholding, 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, CELERA series offers unprecedented flexibility for interfacing to outer world signals: direct encoder readout and strobed lightening have never been so easy.

triggerAdvanced triggering

With CELERA series, user can choose among a long list of triggering mechanisms. 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.
