August 5, 2016 – Point Grey, a provider of performance digital cameras for industrial and scientific applications, announced the release of Blackfly S, a family of USB3 Vision and GigE Vision cameras designed to meet complex imaging requirements.
The Blackfly S is designed for a variety of applications such as display or PCB inspection, microscopy, robotics, 3D scanning, intelligent traffic systems and many more. Meanwhile, Point Grey’s simulation and testing of Blackfly S ensures reliability.
The first two Blackfly S models shipping feature a 29 mm ‘ice cube’ case and a USB 3.0 interface:
- The 5 MP Blackfly S BFS-U3-51S5 model uses the Sony Pregius IMX250 global shutter CMOS sensor, featuring 2448 x 2048 image resolution at 75 FPS.
- The 1.3 MP Blackfly S BFS-U3-13Y3 model uses the ON Semi PYTHON 1300 global shutter CMOS sensor, featuring 1280 x 1024 image resolution at 175 FPS.
Additional Blackfly S models with both USB 3.0 and GigE interfaces will be introduced later this year, including 9 and 12 MP resolution Sony Pregius sensors, low read noise Sony Starvis sensors and Point Grey’s camera with a 20 MP Sony Exmor R sensor.
