Blackfly cameras

Point Grey has added two new Blackfly models to its GigE POE camera family, which the company claims is the smallest POE camera line in the world.

The two new models feature global shutter CCD sensors with excellent quantum efficiency and dynamic range. The BFLY-PGE-05S2 model uses the ICX693 SuperHAD CCD II sensor from Sony, and supports 808 x 608 pixel resolution at 50fps. The sensor uses a 6µm square pixel with excellent well depth and signal-to-noise ratio. The BFLY-PGE-09S2 uses the ICX692 EXview HAD CCD II from Sony and supports 1,288 x 728 pixel resolution at 30fps. The sensor provides low read noise, quantum efficiency near 70 per cent, and excellent near infrared response. Current ICX204 users will benefit from improved sensitivity and reduced smear performance.

The Blackfly supports cable lengths of up 100 metres 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, colour interpolation, look up table, gamma correction, pixel binning functionality, and much more. With their combination of sensors, 29 x 29 x 30mm enclosure size, GigE interface, and feature set, the Blackfly models are perfectly suited for factory automation and analogue camera replacement.
