DUA Camera

DUA double board camera is a flexible tool for synchronized stereo vision, providing uncompressed high-resolution images and videos and maximum adaptability to any available space.

DUA family

DUA double board camera is an extremely flexible device, developed to offer easy synchronization while using two different cameras and providing uncompressed high-resolution images and videos, with maximum adaptability to any available space; given its impressive image quality and reliable design, DUA is perfect for stereo vision, industrial, machine-vision and medical imaging applications.
Separated sensor heads can be positioned to custom fit the hosting product.

Designed and developed specifically to the OEM market, every DUA configuration is tailor made for the OEM customer who seeks a wide range of possibilities within one device. A starting point for deep on-board calculation and custom operations, DUA will be the best partner for your project.

Various mounting options and the double remote heads let the camera match any space requirements for all kinds of application.
DUA cameras are powered directly by the USB3 bus eliminating the need for external power adapters with the most cost effective and widespread interface, pushing speed performances at the top.

The double head system can equip different or identical components, depending on application requirement, thanks to Alkerias ability to manage high complexity in its software.
Dua’s complete set of image controls and the TripleLUT feature series provide powerful onboard image processing, leveraging PC applications from heavy computation.
Dua cameras allows also real-time image capture for time-critical applications, various triggering modes as well as different hardware and software sources.
The general purpose multi-IO connectors feature 6 inputs and 6 outputs.

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++).

Double space-saving remote sensor heads allow maximum installation flexibility in legacy analog camera replacement. The synchronized dual heads system allows perfect stereo vision and a wide range of possibilities.

sony ccdSony CCD Sensor

All DUA cameras use SONY CCD sensors, world renowed highest quality components for machine vision.

palette14 bit A/D Conversion

Low noise front-end design, 14 bit A/D conversion and high bit depth data path guarantee natural shades, smooth color tones and sharper detail reproduction.

lutsTriple 16 bits Programmable LUTs

Each head provides independent LUTs (one for each color) allow easy color thresholding, filtering and calibration for color-critical applications.

I/O12 Programmable I/O

With 6 inputs and 6 outputs, DUA series offers unprecedented flexibility for interfacing to outer world signals: fast triggering, synchronization and flash strobing have never been so easy.

tinyFits everywhere

DUA camera series has been developed specifically to comply to the most critical demands of the machine vision market in terms of integration and connectivity.
