Teledyne DALSA Piranha HS - High performance line scan cameras with TDI technology

Teledyne DALSA Piranha line scan cameras were developed for applications requiring high speeds and fast line rates, and the Piranha HS models complete this excellent product lineup.

These high sensitivity monochrome cameras are equipped with Teledyne DALSA's TDI sensor technology. Depending on the application requirements, the user can choose between models with linear resolutions from 2,000 up to 12,000 pixels.

The outstanding TDI technology provides up to 100 times more responsivity than traditional line scan cameras and this responsivity can increase the depth of field, by allowing the lens to be stopped down, or in other cases permitting the use of low, diffuse illumination coupled with a high line rate. All models are bi-directional, making them ideal in conveyor belt applications that can reverse direction.

The 4k, 6k and 8k models can be operated in area scan mode which provides an invaluable tool for initial set-up, removing the need for the system to be in motion.

Application examples

  • Postal/parcel sorting
  • Document scanning
  • Industrial applications
  • Low light applications


  • Line scan sensors with linear resolutions from 2048 up to 12,000 pixels
  • TDI sensors with 64, 96 or 256 integration stages
  • Square pixels
  • Increased sensitivity in the blue range (2k version)
  • Maximum line rate of 90kHz (12,000 pixels)
  • Configurable CameraLink interface, Base or Medium or Medium or Full (depending on model), resp. HS-Link (12k version)
  • Selectable video output with 8, 10 or 12 bit via multi-taps
  • Responsivity:
    • 1610 DN/(nJ/cm2) for pixel size 13µm,
    • 370 DN/(nJ/cm2) for pixel size 7µm
  • Internal test pattern, end-of-line sequence and statistical data
  • Easy camera configuration via CameraLink: pixel correction, gain, offset, line and data rate etc.
  • Flat field correction to compensate for image inconsistencies
  • Power supply from 12VDC to 15VDC, resp. 24VDC (12k version)
