Teledyne Flir IIS adds USB3 camera series to machine vision portfolio
Teledyne Flir IIS (formerly Point Grey Research) has introduced the new Dragonfly S USB3 camera series to its machine vision portfolio.
The modular concept of the new camera allows engineers to quickly test, develop, and deliver competitive vision products to market at scale, the company says, providing a practical option for factory automation and embedded vision-based device manufacturers.
The camera series is ideal for embedded or handheld device applications such as biometrics kiosk solutions, ophthalmoscopy, 3D scanning, automated optical inspection, and more. It is available in multiple configurations, from board-level to a fully-enclosed module in a ruggedised aluminium case.
The USB connector is offered in a rear or side orientation with screw-in locking mechanism. These modular options provide maximum flexibility and durability, allowing easy integration into tight spaces. The cased models are Class B EMC safety compliant as mitigating electromagnetic interference is critical for healthcare and residential applications. Additionally, an onboard image buffer ensures that every captured image frame is reliably transferred to the host CPU.
The first of its series, Dragonfly S, is now available for pre-order. Additional model releases from VGA to 8MP are planned for 2024.
