(Teledyne FLIR: Goleta, CA) -- Teledyne FLIR has introduced new Blackfly S cameras with 8 MP–20 MP Sony Pregius S sensors to its Blackfly S GigE line. The additions include:

• BFS-PGE-80S5M/C-C featuring 8MP Sony IMX546: color and mono
• BFS-PGE-120S6M/C-C featuring Sony IMX545: color and mono
• BFS-PGE-200S7M/C-C featuring 20MP Sony IMX541: color and mono

The new models add to Teledyne FLIR’s range of GigE Vision-compliant cameras with an impressive lineup of sensors, resolutions, and powerful on-camera features.

Leveraging Sony’s Pregius S series sensors, the cameras deliver exceptional low-light performance, superior quantum efficiency, and very low absolute sensitivity. They are suitable for such challenging applications as microscopy, noncontact metrology, inspection, SLAM, 2D measurements, and more.

Product features and benefits include:
• 8MP–20MP Sony Pregius S global shutter CMOS sensors
• Frame rates up to 30 fps with lossless compression
• High QE and low noise yield for low absolute sensitivity threshold (AST)
• Superior quantum efficiency (QE)
• Excellent low-light performance
• Smaller BSI pixels enable less expensive, more compact optics
• High sensitivity reduces lighting system requirements
