Flea3 FL3-GE series

Share this on social media:

Point Grey has launched the Flea3 FL3-GE series of GigE Vision digital cameras. The camera series has a compact size of 29 x 29 x 30mm.

The first available models use monochrome and colour versions of the Sony ICX445 CCD, a high sensitivity 1.3 Megapixel 1/3-inch EXview HAD image sensor that runs at 30fps. The Flea3 offers excellent imaging performance, price-performance, and a host of new features, including opto-isolated GPIO for industrial triggering and strobe output, non-volatile flash memory for user data storage, and on-camera frame buffer.

Every Flea3 GigE camera is equipped with an industry-standard C-mount lens holder, removable IR cut filter (colour models) or optical window (monochrome models), and a 12-bit analogue-to-digital converter. Additional features include automatic control of most camera properties, such as gain, exposure, and white balance; user configuration sets for defining custom power-up settings; gamma and programmable lookup table; customisable region-of-interest settings; and pixel binning.

The camera also complies with version 1.2 of the GigE Vision specification, which allows it to be used with many third-party software packages. Included with every camera is the FlyCapture SDK, a full software library that provides a common control interface for all Point Grey cameras under both Windows and Linux.
