Product Family Description

  • Ultra-Compact Design
  • USB3 Vision and GenICam Compliant 
  • Includes Image Capture Software and Spinnaker SDK

Teledyne Imaging FLIR/IIS Blackfly S: Advanced Machine Vision Cameras with powerful features   

Capture the images you need from advanced sensors in enclosed or board-level configurations 

The Blackfly® S is a versatile and compact machine vision camera series that leverages the industry’s most advanced area scan sensors in an ultra-compact form factor. It combines powerful features that easily produce the exact images required, accelerating application development.  Combining both automatic and precise manual controls over image capture and on-camera pre-processing.  With options ranging from high-speed performance, high-resolution images, polarization, or low-light sensitivity, the Blackfly® S series of cameras can deliver the required results. 

With the selection of camera variations all sharing the same form factor, it makes it easy to develop once, deploy anywhere.  On camera features include IEEE1588 clock synchronization and full compatibility with popular third-party software supporting either GigE Vision or USB3 Vision interfaces. The Blackfly® S is available in GigE, USB3, cased, and board-level versions.

Note: USB3 cable sold separately. Use (#03-618) 5mm Spacer to convert CS-Mount Cameras to C-Mount. Software available for download
