RICHMOND, CANADA: Point Grey, a world-leading designer and manufacturer of innovative, high-performance digital cameras, announced the addition of a new VGA global shutter CCD model to its value-packed Blackfly GigE PoE camera family – the smallest PoE camera line in the world.
The new Blackfly BFLY-PGE-03S3 camera models are based on color and monochrome versions of the popular Sony ICX414, a 1/2” CCD featuring 9.9 micron square pixels and capable of 648 x 488
pixel resolution at 90 FPS.
This combination of sensor format, resolution and frame rate have resulted in widespread adoption of this sensor in a variety of applications including automated inspection, panel alignment, 3D scanning and more. The BLY-PGE-03S3 offers existing analog or Sony ICX414 sensor users an easy transition path to GigE Vision without affecting optics or imaging performance.
The Blackfly supports cable lengths of up 100 meters using Gigabit Ethernet, is compatible with third-party imaging libraries via the GigE Vision standard, and provides a host of features including Power over Ethernet, temperature and status monitoring, in-field updatable firmware, color interpolation, look up table, gamma correction, pixel binning functionality, and much more.
With their unique combination of sensors, 29 x 29 x 30 mm size, and GigE interface, the new Blackfly models are perfectly suited for factory automation and analog camera replacement.
