Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-50S5

Share this on social media:

Point Grey has added two 5 megapixel global shutter CCD models to its Grasshopper3 family of USB3 Vision cameras.

The Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-50S5 camera models are based on colour and monochrome versions of the popular Sony ICX625, a 2/3-inch CCD sensor capable of streaming 2,448 x 2,048 pixel resolution images at 15fps. This combination of sensor format, resolution and frame rate have resulted in widespread adoption of this device in a variety of applications including optical inspection, 3D imaging, intelligent traffic systems and much more.

The Grasshopper3 uses a proprietary USB 3.0 link layer and frame buffer-based architecture for optimal performance and reliability. It uses an advanced image processing pipeline to enable colour interpolation, look-up table, gamma correction, pixel binning and USB3 Vision support.

The company has also announced plug-and-play interoperability between its Grasshopper3 and Flea3 USB3 Vision cameras and Matrox Imaging Library (MIL), a software tool for developing machine vision, image analysis and medical imaging software applications.
