product image

The Blackfly® S leverages the industry’s most advanced sensors in an ice-cube form factor. It is packed with powerful features enabling you to easily produce the exact images you need and accelerate your application development. This includes both automatic and precise manual control over image capture and on-camera pre-processing. On-camera features including IEEE1588 clock synchronization and full compatibility with popular third-party software supporting GigE Vision, gives system designers the tools to quickly develop innovative solutions. GigE models featuring Lossless Compression (LLC) are also available with higher maximum frame rates and lower bandwidth requirements, helping maximize output without compromising image quality. The Blackfly S is available in GigE, USB3, cased, and board-level versions.

The Blackfly S currently has a lead time of four weeks or less. Get the cameras you need – when you need them.
