Vision Research introduces its Phantom S990, which it claims is the world’s fastest machine vision camera. The S990 features a combination of fast frame rate, high resolution, and available throughput for use in demanding machine vision applications in multiple industries.
The camera delivers direct data transfer speeds up to 9 Gigapixels/second to capture 938 fps at full 9-Mpx 4,096 x 2,304 resolution. It leverages the same CMOS 9.4-megapixel sensor found in the Phantom Flex 4K high-speed camera, capturing 12-bit images and delivering exceptionally high image quality. Using up to 16 standard CoaXPress (CXP6) channels, the S990 is compliant with GenICam and streams directly into PCI Express frame grabbers.
The camera also features a general-purpose input/output (GPIO). It includes signals beneficial in standard high-speed applications, such as Time Code In and Out, as well as signals commonly found in streaming applications. Specifications of the Phantom S990 include:
- Up to 9 Gpx/second (66 Gbps) of streaming capability
- 938 fps at 4,096 x 2,304 and 1,000 fps at 4,096 x 2,160
- 9.4-megapixel CMOS sensor in color or monochrome
- 6.75-µm pixel size
- 12-bit or 8-bit data transfer
- Rolling, Global and Bright Field shutter selection
- Up to 4 banks of 4 CXP ports
- CXP and GenICam compliant
Of course, you can always take a gander at the S990 datasheet.
