Teledyne FLIR 2022 mono and color sensor reviews

02 June 2022

Choices abound when it comes to selecting machine vision camera sensors and models. Beyond considering megapixels and speed, a good place to start narrowing down camera choices is with EMVA 1288 information. These specifications allow the comparison of the image quality of cameras and sensors such as read noise or how well they might perform in low light conditions.

To help system engineers find the right sensor and camera for their needs, Teledyne FLIR's Camera Sensor Review ranks 100+ models by their performance for:

• Quantum efficiency
• Temporal dark noise
• Absolute sensitivity threshold
• Signal to nose ratio (read noise)
• Saturation capacity
• Dynamic range
• Gain

The freely accessible 2022 Sensor Review also provides explanations to help select the right sensor type and covers differences in optical format, readout and pixel structure. It explains different sensor technology from global versus rolling shutter to back illuminated and on-sensor polarization options.
