New 16MP camera breaks through GigE barriers

The Teledyne Flir Blackfly S GigE camera lineup – the BFS-PGE-161S7M and BFS- PGE-161S7C – are the latest additions delivering a high-resolution sensor in a compact form factor, excellent price to performance ratio and outstanding low-light performance. The 16 MP Sony IMX542 (Pregius S series) provides back-illuminated sensor pixel (BSI) technology, noticeably improved quantum efficiency, decreased pixel sizes, and allows the use of less expensive and more compact optics.

These new cameras also take advantage of the company’s new Lossless Compression feature, providing up to 60% higher frame rates with no compromise on image quality. This value-driven combination facilitates further cost reductions by replacing several low-resolution cameras with a single unit, achieving higher frame rates, lower bandwidth utilisation and lower lighting system requirements.

These new global shutter cameras with BSI technology are ideal for various applications – from PCB and Semiconductor inspections to metrology and scientific research, among many others.
