Teledyne FLIR IIS (formerly Point Grey Research), industry pioneer of the area scan USB concept, has introduced the new Dragonfly S USB3 camera series to its machine vision portfolio. The new series is a result of Teledyne’s constant commitment to set and enhance vision industry standards for customer success. It addresses the market’s essential need for a modular, compact, and lightweight camera for at-scale manufacturing, volume-based applications, and multi-camera systems.
Dragonfly S has a modular design to accelerate the inception stage of imaging application development for a diverse range of industrial and non-industrial segments. “This is a first-of-its-kind practical option for factory automation and embedded vision-based device manufacturers,” said Sadiq Panjwani, General Manager at Teledyne FLIR IIS. “The modular concept of the new camera empowers engineers to quickly test, develop, and deliver competitive vision products to market at scale.”
The camera series is ideal for embedded or handheld device applications such as 3D scanning, automated optical inspection, and more. It is available in multiple configurations, from board-level to a fully-enclosed module in a ruggedized aluminum case. The USB connector is offered in a rear or side orientation with screw-in locking mechanism. These modular options provide maximum flexibility and durability, allowing seamless integration in tight spaces. The cased models are Class B EMC safety compliant as mitigating electromagnetic interference is critical for healthcare and residential applications. Additionally, an onboard image buffer ensures that every captured image frame is reliably transferred to the host CPU.
