FPN calibration (UI-3130CP Rev. 2, UI-3140CP Rev. 2, UI-3160CP Rev. 2, and UI-3180CP Rev. 2)


Source: IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH

How can you calibrate ON Semiconductor PYTHON sensors in IDS industrial cameras that are not factory-calibrated? Some of these sensors have a fixed-pattern noise (FPN) which causes vertical lines in the image. If you see such lines, you should calibrate the camera.
