Teledyne Dalsa Linea

Line Scan Camera

Now with color, low cost line scan gets better.

Powerful enough to use anywhere.


Affordable enough to use everywhere.

Introducing Linea, a CMOS line scan camera that can help you improve your imaging and lower your costs. Linea starts with an advanced CMOS sensor with high quantum efficiency and low noise for better images. Linea is also packed with advanced features to make your machine vision job almost effortless.

Latest generation CMOS technology.


Linea uses Teledyne DALSA’s own advanced CMOS line scan sensors with high QE and low noise for better image quality. Available in resolutions from 2k to 16k, and now with color options.

Break through the GigE limit.

Teledyne DALSA’s proprietary TurboDrive™ technology allows Linea GigE to deliver its full image quality at line rates up to 80 kHz—several times faster than competitors—with no changes to your GigE network.

Linea Features

  • Bilinear ColorSee things in a whole new light with Linea’s color option. Our bilinear color architecture maximizes color fidelity and image quality better than anything else at its price point, and still takes advantage of the incredible speed and throughput made possible with TurboDrive.
  • TurboDrive™ Teledyne DALSA’s proprietary TurboDrive™ technology allows Linea GigE to deliver its full image quality at line rates up to 80 kHz—several times faster than competitors—with no changes to your GigE network

  • Burst Mode Linea’s GigE models can take advantage of its high speed sensor by capturing and buffering high speed bursts faster than GigE allows.

  • Cycling Mode Linea lets you change your settings every line and cycle through up to five different user-controlled configurations. That means for every line you can use a different light source, lighting angle, exposure time, gain, and more to get more information from a single pass with a single camera.
  • HDR Imaging Linea lets you combine short and long exposures to see details in bright and dark areas at the same time.
  • Multiple ROI Linea gives you Multiple Regions of Interest to let you reduce your data transfer and processing load — all of which not only help boost performance but also reduce your system cost.

Break the GigE Limit

TurboDrive is a mode of operation used to push past the gigabit Ethernet speed ceiling, allowing a GigE Vision cameras to send pixel information at a rate in excess of 125 MB/s and speeding up line and frame rates beyond the nominal link capacity. How much more speed does TurboDrive deliver? The degree of improvement is dependent on the image itself, but is often double the standard throughput.

Image Quality

TurboDrive does not affect your images—the images transmitted to system memory are exactly the same as the images read from the camera sensor, bit for bit. There is no loss of image data and no compromise.


TurboDrive does not require any hardware or software changes to your network or application. However it is only available on select Teledyne DALSA cameras and requires Teledyne DALSA’s free Sapera LT SDK (v8.0 minimum), which includes our GigE driver.

What is T2IR

Seeing is Believing

If your machine vision system shows you something, you’d like to be able to trust it. But the reality is that a lot can go wrong in a complex imaging system. If your system is a “black box”, how can you tell if your data is complete and correct—is it “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”? If something does go wrong, can you tell what, where, and more importantly why? Teledyne DALSA’s Trigger-to-Image Reliability framework can give you the answers. T2IR is a combination of hardware and software features that work together at a system level to help you improve the reliability of your inspection system. It controls and monitors the entire process from trigger through image capture and transfer to host memory and helps protect you from data loss.

T2IR Benefits

  • Makes system more predictable
  • Prevents many errors before they happen
  • Lets your system manage exceptions in controlled manner
  • Provides system debugging and tracing
  • Reduces downtime
  • Improves application response time
  • Increases robustness

Situations Where T2IR Helps

  • Too many objects fall in front of the camera (over triggering)
  • Need to troubleshoot a device
  • Need to verify critical imaging events such as lost frames, lines, triggers etc.
  • Need to build verification into applications as part of runtime operation
  • Want applications to be portable across devices and platforms
  • Want to tag images for traceability
  • In overload conditions, want to skip some inspections but keep track of what was skipped
