This article explains how to interpret FLIR machine vision product part numbers.
Our Model Numbers Mean Something!
Here is one example of our model numbers and what each section means.
Understanding this will give you a quick explanation of the model’s specifications and help you when comparing models.
|FFMV||Firefly MV FireWire|
|FMVU||Firefly MV USB2|
Note: Applies only to newer products, beginning with FL3. Part numbers of earlier products do not include this designator.
|PGE||Power over Ethernet|
|POE||Power over Ethernet /IP Camera|
|PGEHD||Power over Ethernet/HD-SDI|
|Resolution*||Manufacturer||Optical Size||Color or Monochrome|
*in cases where two sensors share the same resolution, the number is increased by 1. For example, the ZBR2-PGEHD-50S5C and ZBR2-PGEHD-51S5C are both 5.0 MP cameras
The -C or -CS optics designator may not appear on all product documentation. For example, on the camera box label shown below, the -C designator appears on the part number, but not on the model number. The lens mount designator may also not appear on the serial number label on the bottom of the camera, or on the etching on the side of the camera. However, the missing designator does not mean the camera is a different model from the one that was ordered. The part number and the model refer to the same camera on all product labelling. So, in the box label pictured below, part number FL2-03S2M-C and model FL2-03S2M are the same Flea2 camera, equipped with a C-mount lens holder.
Part Number FL2-03S2M-C and Model FL2-03S2M are the same camera, equipped with a C-mount lens holder
- FMVU-13S2C-CS: FireflyMV USB2, 1.3 MP Sony 1/3" sensor, color, CS-mount (USB interface designator is missing from this part number because it is an earlier product.)
- FL3-FW-03S1C-C: Flea3, FireWire, 0.3 MP Sony 1/4" sensor, color, C-mount
- GS2-GE-20S4M-C: Grasshopper2, Gigabit Ethernet, 2.0 MP Sony 1/1.8" sensor, monochrome, C-mount
