Genie Nano Family: NanoXL-M5100/4090 models  


The Genie NanoXL, a member of the Genie Nano camera family, provides a new series of very high resolution, affordable easy to use digital cameras specifically engineered for industrial imaging applications requiring improved network integration.

Genie NanoXL cameras use the industries’ latest leading sensors such as the On-Semi Python series of global shutter active pixel-type CMOS image sensors.

Genie Nano cameras combine standard gigabit Ethernet technology (supporting GigE Vision 1.2) with the Teledyne DALSA Trigger-to-Image-Reliability framework to dependably capture and transfer images from the camera to the host PC. Genie Nano cameras are available in a number of models implementing different sensors, image resolutions, and feature sets, either in monochrome or color versions.

Compact and versatile with PoE capability

Teledyne DALSA is pleased to introduce our next two models in Genie Nano Family spearheaded by the latest fast sensors from the ON-Semi Python CMOS family with 16 Megapixel and 25Megapixel resolutions.
