Ahrensburg, 28 February 2013 – Digital camera specialist Basler is starting series production of their latest racer line scan camera models with resolutions of 6k, 8k, and 12k. They are available with either a Gigabit Ethernet or a Camera Link interface, and offer extraordinary line rates of up to 80 kHz. All racer models produce excellent images, and are very attractively priced. Together with the 2k and 4k racer models, Basler’s racer line scan family now covers the whole spectrum of standard line scan cameras.

Sophisticated Sensor Technology
The highly sensitive CMOS technology of the Basler racer cameras provides for excellent image quality, low noise characteristics, and a quantum efficiency of approx. 60%. With the very low power consumption of the CMOS sensors, and an innovative heat-dissipation concept, Basler racer cameras stay much cooler than comparable line scan cameras, and supply better image quality.

Compact Housing for Easy Integration
Basler racer cameras are extremely lightweight and have a small footprint for easy integration. With a width of just 56 mm and a height of 62 m, they are an ideal fit for multi-camera systems. Their compact size makes it possible to install several cameras very close to each other, resulting in a high spatial resolution of the inspected object in the camera image.

Ideal Fit for Inspection of Continuous Materials
With the new 6k, 8k, and 12k racer models, users from many different markets and applications will easily find a racer camera for their needs. Basler’s high resolution racer cameras are especially suitable for inspection of continuous materials, such as in web inspection, flat panel display inspection, and solar inspection.
