PerkinElmer Launches Newest Product In SmartBlue(TM) Family of Digital Linear Array Cameras

4096 Pixel Resolution CCD Camera Delivers High Speed, Precise Imaging and Excellent Noise Immunity for Industrial Inspection Applications

Nuremberg, Germany - Sensor + Test 2007 - PerkinElmer Optoelectronics, a global technology leader in digital imaging, sensors, and specialty lighting, today announced the availability of the new SmartBlue(TM) 4096 pixel Digital Linescan Camera for industrial inspection applications. The SmartBlue 4K camera incorporates high-end electronics, a digital interface and rugged industrial housing to meet the needs of demanding imaging applications such as machine vision, flat panel and web inspection. The 4K model is the latest addition to PerkinElmer's SmartBlue family of high-speed digital linescan cameras.

"With 4096 pixels resolution, the new SmartBlue 4K doubles the field-of-view or spatial resolution of the imaging system as compared to the 2K model. Now OEMs can select from PerkinElmer the CCD camera model that best suits their needs with respect to spatial resolution and field-of-view," according to Bill Kibler, Global CCD Product Leader, PerkinElmer Optoelectronics.

The SmartBlue 4K's 80MHz pixel rate yields line rates up to 19 kHz without compromising its superb noise immunity, precise linearity and high charge transfer efficiency. It comes equipped with an industry-standard CameraLinkTM digital communication interface. Its user-controllable internal image processing make it faster and more convenient than alternatives, using fewer computer resources in what is likely an already over-burdened host computer. PerkinElmer's SmartBlue cameras incorporate the well-established, industry-standard Reticon® photodiode arrays.

PerkinElmer's SmartBlue 4K camera will be on display for the first time at Sensor + Test in Nuremberg on May 22 - May 24, 2007. The camera will be featured at PerkinElmer's Booth # 7 / 265, held at the Nuremberg Convention Center.
