Point Grey launches first model in new Blackfly camera range

Point Grey has released the first model in its all-new Blackfly series, which the company says is the world’s smallest and lightest GigE PoE (Power over Ethernet) camera package. The new BLFY-PGE-13E4 features a 1.3MP, 60fps, CMOS global shutter sensor, available in both monochrome and color, and uses less than 2W power consumption. Future Blackfly models will include 0.5 and 0.9MP CCD resolutions with excellent quantum efficiency and wide dynamic range. By combining the best sensor technology, interface implementation and low power, the Blackfly camera is suitable for all outdoor imaging applications.

The BFLY-PGE-13E4 model uses the EV76C560 CMOS sensor from e2v, which uses a global shutter readout architecture. Global shutter is critical to prevent geometric distortion when capturing images of fast moving objects. The CMOS pixel design addresses blooming and smearing artifacts caused by bright sources or reflections in the camera’s field of view. The company says that the new Blackfly model will satisfy the demand for a global shutter CMOS unit that is suitable for cost-sensitive applications in 3D imaging or license plate recognition systems. The camera measures just 29 x 29 x 30mm (1.14 x 1.14 x 1.18 inches) and provides a unique set of features, including power over Ethernet, temperature and status monitoring, in-field updatable firmware, color interpolation, look up table, gamma correction and pixel binning functions.

“The Blackfly camera is generating huge interest in the industry by addressing customer demand for modern sensor technology, small footprint and an attractive price point,” explained Michael Gibbons, Point Grey’s director of sales and marketing. “We are excited to address traditional machine vision, 3D imaging, automated inspection, open road tolling (ORT) and many new and future applications with the Blackfly camera.”
