Learning about Line Scan

I’ve mentioned before that line scan imaging – like when you need to inspect a strip in continuous motion – presents an entirely new set of challenges. Perhaps the biggest issue is the need to synchronize image acquisition with part motion.

Camera specs quote line rates in KHz, and it has never been obvious, (to me, anyway,) how this translates to linear motion of the surface you wish to inspect.

Well for anyone struggling with this subject, let me share a link to a well written technical article that addresses the whole area of
line scan integration, courtesy of Adlink Technology Inc., “a world-class provider of Industrial Building Blocks (IBB) and Industrial Application Platforms (IAP) for embedded computing, measurement and automation applications.”
