Press Release

Shad-o-Box 1280 HS


WATERLOO, Ontario - June 9, 2011 - Rad-icon Imaging, a division of Teledyne DALSA Corporation, a leader in machine vision technology, today introduced the Shad-o-Box 1280 HS X-ray camera. This new Shad-o-Box HS model delivers a superior solution for industrial CT applications with high-speed, 30 fps operation, exceptionally low noise, unmatched sensitivity, real-time GigE interface, and a nearly complete elimination of image artifacts. The Shad-o-Box 1280 HS can also be operated in 2x2 binning mode at up to 60 fps for dynamic NDT and scientific imaging applications.

Existing CMOS imaging solutions in the market evolved from low frame rate panels, whereas the Shad-o-Box 1280 HS provides dynamic, 30 fps imaging out of the box at a competitive price.

The low-noise, distortion-free imaging at full video rates is far superior to similar-sized image intensifier (II) and amorphous silicon (a-Si) based solutions. With an active area of 12.8 x 12.8 cm (5 x 5") and 100 µm pixel size, the product offers an attractive image size and resolution for industrial CT applications, including the inspection of circuit boards, machine components, and manufactured parts as well as dimensional verification and failure analysis.

Other features include:

■ 14-bit digital image quality
■ 1.6 megapixel resolution at 30 fps
■ Sensitivity exceeding 10 LSB/µR
■ Real-time GigE interface
■ Low power CMOS design consumes less than 10 W

The Shad-o-Box 1280 HS camera ships with a power supply, GigE cable, Rad-icon's ShadoCam Imaging Software, and Gigabit Ethernet driver. The software is compatible with Windows® XP, VISTA and Windows 7.

Rad-icon Imaging (Sunnyvale, CA.), a division of Teledyne DALSA Corporation (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada), is a leading provider of high-performance CMOS image sensors and cameras for the digital radiography market worldwide. Rad-icon's products enable medical practitioners, industrial manufacturers, and scientific researchers to create superior image quality, high resolution, and large active area images based on their CMOS active pixel sensor (APS) technology.
