FireWire Cameras: Up to 6MP, Extreme Sensitivity
Product Announcement from Point Grey Research, Inc.
Building on Point Grey's experience with Sony EXview HAD CCD II™ technology, the new Grasshopper Express GX-FW-60S6 boasts the ICX674 and ICX694 sensors to deliver high resolution and extreme sensitivity in a compact and low-cost package.
Compared to other CCD devices, EXview is known for higher quantum efficiency, reduced smear, and increased near infrared sensitivity. Applications imaging fast moving objects will benefit from improved sensitivity, shorter exposure values to eliminate motion blur, and post capture gain. With its high infrared response, the Grasshopper Express line allows customers to detect features and defects at higher wavelengths.
Every Grasshopper Express camera is equipped with a tripod mounting bracket, on-board temperature and power sensors to monitor camera status, and Point Grey's rich feature set.
Industry-leading pricing and best-in-class image quality make the new GX ideal for applications in machine vision, bioscience, traffic and GIS applications.
