Cameras & Scanners
Print inspection camera & scanner technologies for the Print Industry
The Discovery platform can acquire data from a wide range of scanner and camera devices. Our GigEread range of integrated inspection camera, illumination and optics modules can be implemented alongside standard camera technology and a wide range of serial input devices such as Barcode or 2D scanners, RFID scanners, Magnetic stripe and Chip readers etc. Linescan cameras can provide high-resolution images for high-speed web and sheet applications, while our award-winning MaxScan technology provides true 600DPI full-colour imaging for webs and sheets up to 926mm wide.
Where specialist illumination or optics are required to achieve unusual fields of view and scanning areas, or images of glossy or reflective products, Discovery can interface with most available imaging technologies. With the constant introduction of new cameras to the market resolutions in excess of 2592 pixels x 1944 pixels can be achieved, or speeds in excess of 100 images per second, giving Discovery the performance necessary for the widest range of applications
Area Scan cameras:
Up to 12 camera inputs per processor:
GigE and CameraLink interface,
Resolutions in excess of 5MP, mono, colour, UV, with speeds in excess of 100fps
GigEread integrated imaging modules
GigEread Modules are designed to take away the mystery of imaging and illumination. Each module is designed with a specific application in mind. The GigEread approach to imaging provides the ultimate flexibility of proven camera technologies, with integrated optics and lighting, providing long-term consistency and stability. All GigEread cameras feature fixed focus and illumination for ease of use, setup and long term stability.
Line Scan Cameras
The Discovery platform can support a wide range of both colour and black and white line scan camera technologies. Ideal for continuous print and web applications, a Line Scan camera can acquire an image of the entire width of a web or document without the need for camera movement between jobs. With up to 16,000 pixels of horizontal resolution, Line Scan allows multiple inspections to be performed providing 100% variable data integrity and print quality.
Line Scan Cameras
GigE, CameraLink and Coaxpress interface
2 to 16K resolution, mono or colour, UV,
Linear Contact Scanners
True 600 DPI image Resolution, at up to 929mm width. Very low headroom requirement, colour or mono
Discovery Maxscan is a revolutionary new compact scanning technology that gives true 600DPI inspection resolution in full colour at web and sheet widths in excess of 900mm, whilst maintaining an ultralow mechanical profile. Discovery MaxScan is an exciting new addition to the Discovery family.
