USB3 Vision board-level camera with e2v / Aptina sensors - mvBlueFOX3-M1

mvBlueFOX3-M - CMOS USB3 Vision board-level cameras
  • Compact industrial board-level camera with USB 3
  • High quality sensors from VGA up to 10 megapixels
  • Gray scale and color versions
  • Hardware preprocessing on-board (FPGA)
  • Image memory 256 MBytes
  • Excellent cost-benefit ratio

The compact industrial camera mvBlueFOX3 is now available as a board-level model. Benefit from the new flexibility in combination with USB3 Vision cameras. The board-level model has the same hardware features as the standard version. I.e. large image memory for reliable image transfers, wide range of CMOS sensors, as well as camera-based smart features which reduce the load of the Host system.

Your advantages with the mvBlueFOX3

FPGA

Huge camera FPGA reduces CPU load of your host system.

Huge camera FPGA with a lot of space for features. We add new features easily via free of charge firmware updates.

Bildspeicher

You won't lose an image with the internal image memory again.

The image memory buffers images and enables useful features like Record / Playback, Pretrigger as well as  Sequence recording using parameter sets.

Timer und Counter

For counting and triggering of events, counters are a handy feature for your application.

You can generate output signals variably, control illumination systems, synchronize several cameras, and a lot more.

Große Filterauswahl

The suitable filter for your lighting situation or environmental condition.

You can choose between daylight cut (Cold Mirror), IR cut (Hot Mirror) or glass (without filter) filter, which can be intergrated.
