Point Grey adds Flea3 GigE Vision Cameras
November 30, 2011 – Point Grey announced FL3-GE-03S2 and FL3-GE-08S2 VGA and XGA models, respectively. The FL3-GE-03S2 uses the 1/3-inch Sony ICX424 CCD – featuring sensitive 7.4 micron square pixels – and is capable of sending 648x488 images at 82 FPS over the camera’s Gigabit Ethernet interface. The FL3-GE-08S2 uses the 1/3-inch ICX204 CCD and can transmit 1032x776 images at 31 FPS.
With their combination of sensors, size, interface, and cable length support, the new Flea3s are perfectly suited for analog camera replacement. The Sony CCDs are well established industry standards and at 29 x 29 x 30 millimeters the Flea3 has the same dimensions as other popular ice-cube form factor analog cameras. The Flea3 also complies with version 1.2 of the GigE Vision specification allowing it to support cable lengths of up 100 meters and be used with leading third-party software packages.
Features include an 8-pin opto-isolated GPIO for industrial triggering and strobe output; 1 MB non-volatile flash memory for user data storage; and on-camera frame buffer for retransmitting and resending images.
The FL3-GE-08S2C (1/3-inch .8 MP 30 FPS) is list priced at $745 and the FL3-GE-03S2C (1/3 inch .3 MP 80 FPS) is list priced at $675
