MV-Camera with Advanced Backside Illuminated Sensor
Flir Systems, Inc. announced the availability of the FLIR Blackfly S visible spectrum camera module, the first to integrate the Sony Pregius S IMX540 sensor with 24.5 MP at 12 FPS in a USB3 camera. The combination of the Blackfly S feature set with IMX540’s high megapixel (MP) count and fast imaging enables engineers and researchers from biomedical to semiconductor industries to inspect more in less time and with fewer cameras required. “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.”
Next Generation of Backside Illuminated Sensors
With a new backside illuminated (BSI) 2.74 µm pixel, the Pregius S sensors nearly doubles the pixel density of earlier Pregius sensors while taking advantage of more compact lenses. Delivering 24 MP, 12 FPS Sony Pregius distortion-free imaging of fast-moving targets, the camera module enables fast production lines even for very detailed inspection. It also delivers high quantum efficiency and low read noise allowing shorter exposure times, and therefore less powerful lights are required.
