RGB line scan camera uniScanRGB
RGB line scan camera uniScanRGB

The RGB line scan camera uniScanRGB is suitable for color machine vision applications. The camera is based on newest CMOS chip technology. The high sensitivity CMOS sensor is characterised by:
■ Minimised noise level
■ High image contrast
■ Low power consumption

Synchronisation problems, which cause blooming effects or image artefacts in common trilinear sensors, do not occur due to the usage of CMOS technology.


The high effective resolution of 2048 tracks combined with a digital resolution of 12 bit and a full frame rate of 260 Hz to 850 Hz provide an outstanding performance of uniScanRGB. Even smallest objects are scanned in detail at high frame rates, enabling the usage of uniScanRGB in sorting and screening applications requiring both: high resolution and high speed. The RGB line scan camera is equipped with an industrial proof RGB objective lens and integrated into an IP 65 rated housing, enabling maintenance-free 24h/7d operation. Several binning modes for the combination of the RGB line scan camera with hyperspectral cameras KUSTAx.xMSI or uniSPECx.xHSI are available. The dynamic range is then increased to 16 bit, enabling a better performance at unfavourable lighting conditions.

Included in delivery is a preconfigured industrial PC with camera control and analysis software. The analysis software can be customised for specific tasks including sorting and monitoring applications. Prior to data evaluation, the software transfers the RGB data automatically into the user-friendly HSV-colour model. The analysis result is sent to an external process control unit (e.g. SPS control) via standard Gigabit Ethernet interface in real-time. In addition to the type code, the HSV information is available as well.

Possible Applications:
■ Color sorting of material streams,
■ Surface inspection of natural materials,
■ Monitoring,
■ Scanning
