The high resolving power combined with a high clock rate is an important criterion for the use of CCD line scan cameras. Thus, a 100% control of the material to be tested is ensured even in fast production processes: While one line of a matrix camera rarely comprises more than 1024 pixels, line sensors generally use sensors with significantly more pixels. This results in a much higher resolution.

The camera resolution over the viewing width depends on the number of pixels and the product width to be monitored. Equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet interface, the GSC series includes sensors ranging from 512 to 4,096 pixels. By cascading several cameras a high resolution is achieved even with very wide material webs.

In addition, cameras with a Camera Link interface can be used, which enable sensors with up to 16,384 pixels.

The resolution in the material direction is determined by the clock rate (scanning frequency) of the camera. The GSC series operates at clock rates between 10,000 and 175,000 measurements per second.
