FLIR Systems has released its new FLIR Blackfly S visible spectrum camera module, the first to combine the Sony Pregius S IMX540 sensor with 24.5MP at 12FPS in a USB3 camera. The combination of the Blackfly S feature set with IMX540’s high MP count and fast imaging allows engineers and researchers from biomedical to semiconductor industries to examine more in less time and with fewer cameras needed.
“OEM machine designers, engineers and researchers rely on FLIR for high quality, full-feature machine vision cameras,” said Paul Clayton, general manager, Components Business at FLIR Systems. “With this latest Blackfly S model, we continue the tradition of combining the best technology with world-class support to empower our customers to achieve their objectives faster and at lower costs.”
With a new BSI 2.74µm pixel, the sensors nearly double the pixel density of previous Pregius sensors while providing lower cost and more compact lenses. Delivering 24MP, 12FPS distortion-free imaging of fast-moving targets, the device allows faster production lines even for highly detailed inspection. The device also provides high quantum efficiency and low read noise, enabling shorter exposure times, and consequently, less powerful lights are needed resulting in lower lighting costs.
