Metaphase's 600kHz FASTRIG is the highest rate driver in the industry. By partnering with line scan camera manufacture's, our illuminators can be synchronized with the industry's fastest line scan cameras. The FASTRIG driver allows high-speed switching between either multiple wavelengths or illumination techniques at rates high enough to capture synchronized images on a scan-line per scan-line basis. Typical applications of high-speed line scan multiplexing include combinations of front and back lighting or alternating between different wavelengths like infrared and visible.
Polarization With the recent launch of Teledyne Dalsa and Sony’s polarized cameras, polarization is quickly becoming the new hot trend in machine vision, and Metaphase has been expanding our portfolio of polarized lighting to meet the demand. While traditional polarization with lens filters and lights filters still work, it will become a thing of the past. With properly polarized light, you can get the best cross polarization possible with the polarized cameras to minimize glare. We offer a range of polarized lights in both area scan and line scan to meet all machine vision illumination needs.
STEREO ILLUMINATION Metaphase’s Stereo Illumination provides segmented illumination stereo or shape-from-shading vision systems. By taking multiple sequential exposures with lighting with directional light from different segments, these multiple images can be stitched together to create an enhanced image with improved contrast of surface features. This is great for objects with surface defects such as wrinkles, punctures, chips and tears as well as identifying embossed or stamped codes and text. We offer the largest selection of segmented stereo illuminators big and small to fit your application.
