DALSA Introduces Color Smart Camera for End-User Machine Vision Applications

Fully Featured BOA Vision System is enhanced with Color Processing

BILLERICA, Mass. – January 19, 2010 - DALSA Corporation [TSX: DSA], a global leader in machine vision technology, today announced the availability of color processing for its BOA vision system, DALSA’s highly integrated smart camera. Supported with a full suite of vision tools, the new color version of the BOA sets a new cost/performance standard for color enhanced smart camera solutions.

“Color inspection is often a requirement in the automotive, food, packaging and pharmaceutical industries”, says Steve Geraghty, director of DALSA’s Industrial Products group. “Our BOA color smart camera offers manufacturers in these industries an extremely capable color solution at a very affordable price.”

The BOA smart camera can be applied to a broad range of color inspection applications, such as identification of parts or assembly features, sorting, counting, and verification of color hue. The color tools can be easily combined with standard measurement or identification tools to perform a complete inspection of the part or assembly. The easy-to-use, iNspect Express software interface, allows users to rapidly prototype and deploy solutions, and it is available with a fully featured emulator for offline application development and debugging.

“BOA delivers great performance at a very reasonable price,” says Brian Seguin, vision manager at H.H. Barnum, a DALSA distributor in Michigan. “The addition of color processing will allow our customers in the automotive and packaging industries to solve a wide range of applications using the same inspection tool.”

The ultra small BOA has been specifically designed for industry. Its 44 mm cube form factor is perfect for tight-fit set-ups. The IP67-rated housing means that the camera can be directly deployed in harsh, wash-down environments. This is particularly useful to meet control standards in the food and pharmaceutical industries, and eliminates the need for a separate, costly protective enclosure. BOA’s small form factor and easy mounting capabilities allow it to integrate easily into existing production lines, machinery or moving equipment.
