Radiant Vision Systems introduces new high-resolution imaging photometer
Radiant Vision Systems announced a new 43-megapixel CCD imaging system as part of its line of ProMetric imaging photometers. The ProMetric Y43 Imaging Photometer is designed to provide extremely high CCD resolution to enable advanced measurement capability for display and consumer electronics manufacturers. The Y43 complements the Y2, Y16, and Y29 models of Radiant’s ProMetric Y series of imaging systems, with imaging resolution high enough to measure high-definition displays at the pixel level, or for imaging electronic components and surfaces in maximum detail using a single camera.
The spatial resolution of the Y43 allows the camera to detect pixel and subpixel luminance and color variations across display bright states (gray levels), subtle surface anomalies or particles, and other defects. Defects in images can be identified and quantified using Radiant’s TrueTest Automated Visual Inspection Software (available with tests for comprehensive display defect detection, mura identification and assessment, or application-specific testing of automotive displays, head-up displays, and augmented or virtual reality displays). TrueTest applies objective analysis and repeatable pass/fail criteria to Y-series images for fully automated quality control.
Radiant’s ProMetric Y-series imaging systems are engineered with cooled interline CCD sensors that limit image noise for highly accurate, repeatable imaging. The ProMetric Y43 uses a 43-megapixel (8040 x 5360) CCD sensor with low image noise for repeatability inspecting small visual details. Time to measure a complete high-resolution display at several CCD pixels per display pixel is reportedly less than 1.5 seconds, enabling production-level applications such as in-line quality control. ProMetric Y imaging systems are available with an internal Tristimulus Y filter for photometric metrology applications (light and color measurement), or as a radiometric imager for radiant intensity measurements (for imaging surfaces and non-lit components, or measuring near-infrared light).
All Radiant ProMetric imaging systems are designed to simulate human perception of brightness and color. Y-series camera systems combine the benefits of automation—speed, repeatability, and objective data—with the sensitivity of human vision to ensure that quality assessment of light and display products accurately reflects the human user’s experience. Each Y-series model is available with a variety of interchangeable lenses calibrated at each F-stop, enabling optimized measurements over a wide range of working distances and viewing angles. ProMetric Y supports high-speed USB and Ethernet communications.
