Blackfly 1.2 MP Mono GigE PoE (Aptina AR0134)

Point Grey, a world-leading designer and manufacturer of innovative, high-performance digital cameras, today announced new models to the Blackfly family of ultra-compact PoE GigE Vision cameras. The latest Blackfly models utilise leading-edge global shutter CMOS technology to capture crisp, distortion-free images of objects in motion, a critical requirement for applications such as factory automation or open road tolling.

The BFLY-PGE-12A2 camera uses the new AR0134 from Aptina, a 1.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor capable of capturing images at 50 FPS. The AR0134 uses Aptina’s latest 3.75-micron global shutter pixel technology to deliver exceptional low light performance and quantum efficiency of over 70 percent. The sensor’s 1/3-inch optical format enables analog camera users to easily switch to digital without changing optics, while offering higher resolution and faster frame rates.

The new BFLY-PGE-20E4 model utilizes the new EV76C570 sensor from e2V, a 1/1.8-inch 2 megapixel sensor that supports frame rates up to 47 FPS. The higher resolution EV76C570 is the latest addition to e2v’s Sapphire family of high sensitivity global shutter CMOS sensors, which also includes the 1.3 MP EV76560 device used in other Point Grey cameras.

Technical Specifications:

  • Aptina AR0134 1/3″ Global Shutter CMOS
  • 1280 x 960 at 52 FPS
  • Mono, CS-Mount
  • Gigabit Ethernet with Power over Ethernet
  • 29 x 29 x 30 mm
  • 6-pin Hirose HR10 GPIO opto-isolated pins
  • Power supply, tripod mount, C-mount adapter NOT included

With their unique combination of imaging performance, 29 x 29 x 30 mm size, and low price, the new Blackfly models are perfectly suited for applications in machine vision and factory automation.

CMOS global shutter performance and customer demand continues to climb, favouring lower power consumption, no blooming or smearing artifacts, along with a very attractive price point, said Michael Gibbons, director of sales and marketing at Point Grey. The company is very excited to release two new models featuring this technology, enabling its customers to take advantage of CMOS global shutter with more model selection and higher resolution.
