The Point Grey Flea 3 0.3MP Monochrome GigE Camera's 1000Mb/s Gigabit Ethernet bus provides enough bandwidth to transmit over distances up to 100m. Simply put GigE Vision is an interface based on the Internet Protocol Standard for high-performance industrial and Astro-Imaging cameras. It provides a framework for transmitting high-speed video and related control data over Ethernet networks. The Flea3 imaging system features the highly regarded Sony ICX424 CMOS Sensor at its heart.
System costs are reduced with low-cost frame grabbers and by eliminating the need for cable repeaters. Scalablity also reduces future costs as GigE Vision continues development for faster bandwidths.
Opto-isolated GPIO protects the camera from noise on the ground pin generated by external devices as well as power issues caused by malfunctioning devies attached to the camera.
Screw holes on each side of the camera’s GigE connector enable secure connection to the camera, guaranteeing a reliable connection, and reducing stress on internal electronics caused by cable movement.
Industry Standard Design
Every mechanical component of the Flea3 camera is designed to maximize usability, including the compact aluminum case, C-mount lens holder and ASA/ISO-compliant tripod mounting bracket, status LED and removable glass/IR filter system.
Hardware and software triggering for synchronizing multiple cameras or coordinating with external devices. Supported modes include standard, bulb shutter, skip frames, multiple exposure (preset and pulse width), over-lapped exposure/readout and multi-shot.
Frame Buffer/Image Retransmit
The camera is equipped with a 32MB frame buffer that can be used to store multiple images for transmission, or retransmission, at a later time. This is useful in situations where the available GigE bandwidth must be maximized between multiple cameras, or where an image must be sent again.
The field-programmable gate array chip controls all camera functionality, including on-camera color processing, pixel binning, user memory channels and more. It can also be updated with new firmware in the field.
The FlyCapture SDK is compatible with Microsoft Windows and Linux Ubuntu and a full software API library, demo programs and C/C++/C# example source code. It also includes the Point Grey filter driver, which provides enhanced data communication between the GigE bus and the CPU and the GigE Configurator tool for configuring IP addressing.
Tripod adapter with every camera. All the accessories you need to get up and running, such as interface cards, cables, and power adapters are available.
