IDS says the latest additions to its Blackfly S GigE camera lineup – the BFS-PGE-161S7M and BFS-PGE-161S7C – deliver a high-resolution sensor in a compact form factor, superior price to performance ratio and exceptional low-light performance. The 16 MP Sony IMX542 (Pregius S series) features back-illuminated sensor pixel (BSI) technology, significantly improved quantum efficiency (QE), reduced pixel sizes, and enables the use of less expensive and more compact optics.
These new Blackfly S cameras also take advantage of IDS’s new lossless compression feature, said to deliver up to 60% higher frame rates without compromising on image quality. This value driven combination enables further cost reductions by replacing several low-resolution cameras with a single unit, delivering higher frame rates, lower bandwidth utilization and lower lighting system requirements.
IDS says these new Blackfly S global shutter cameras with BSI technology are suitable for a range of applications – from PCB and semiconductor inspections to metrology and scientific research among several others.
