Sandra Dekarz with basler racer

racer Series

Exceptional performance - low space requirement
Basler racer line scan cameras shrink both the space required and the cost involved in securing superior speed, reliability and image quality. Measuring a slim 56mm, it’s a perfect fit for most any system — including multi-camera arrangements. It also fits your budget, with its pared down price and by delivering exceptional performance under low voltage LED lighting.

The advantages of the Basler racer series include:
  • Resolutions: 2k, 4k, 6k, 8k, and 12k
  • Max. line rate of 80 kHz via Camera Link
  • Max. line rate of 51 kHz via GigE
  • PoCL (Power over Camera Link) functionality
  • Mini camera link plugs permit the use of low priced cables
  • Outstanding price/performance ratio
  • Fully quality tested and calibrated for consistently high performance and reliability
Our racer 2k, 4k and 6k models (raL2048-48gm, raL4096-24gm, raL6144-16gm) now also support the GigE Vision 2.0 standard. This allows to operate cameras in synchronicity and/or real-time without the need for additional cabling. Taking this progress a step further, many applications have now eliminated the need for extra hardware (the trigger box). In this scenario the cameras are triggered from within the software, including for synchronous operation.

The key components of GigE Vision 2.0 are:
  • A shared, high-precision source of time for all network components through PTP (Precision Time Protocol = IEEE 1588)
  • Synchronous free run for the cameras
  • Trigger-over-Ethernet with Action Command or Scheduled Action Command

The Basler racer is especially well suited for the following applications:
  • Web inspections (such as films, paper, cotton, textiles)
  • Sorting & packaging (such as refuse, postal mail, foodstuffs, packaging)
  • Transport-related applications (such as underfloor, rail, overhead line and container inspections)
Read HERE why the racer is so strong in these applications.
