Matrix Vision has introduced new mvBlueFox3 USB3 Vision cameras featuring CMOS sensors from Aptina. The sensors are characterised in particular by their A-Pix technology, which enhances the quantum efficiency by the use of light guides and deep photodiodes. This minimises crosstalk and leads to sharper images with vibrant colours even in low-light conditions.

The smallest sensor is the 1/3-inch, 3.1 megapixel colour sensor with a resolution of 2,052 x 1,536 pixels. This rolling shutter sensor has a maximum frame rate of 30Hz at full resolution and is suitable for full-HD applications with 60 images per second.

A second sensor has a resolution of 3,664 x 2,748 pixels (10 megapixels). There are colour and greyscale models available. The 1/2.35-inch rolling shutter sensor reaches a frame rate of 7Hz at full resolution.

The largest sensor has a resolution of 14 megapixels. The rolling shutter colour sensor measures 1/2.3 inches. At full resolution this sensor offers a frame rate of 6.3Hz.

All sensors feature a Global Reset Release trigger functionality with the possibility to control a flash function to minimise rolling shutter artefacts.

The mvBlueFox3 is suited to industrial applications. It measures 39 x 39 x 24mm and, along with the integrated 256MB image memory, the camera incorporates an FPGA with smart features for image processing. The camera family is compliant with GenICam and USB3 Vision. Drivers are available for Linux and Windows. Furthermore, the camera is supported by image processing libraries compliant with USB3 Vision.
