Building on it existing Grasshopper3 USB3 Vision product line, Point Grey has announced the introduction of the Grasshopper3 GigE Vision PoE camera family. One of the first two models available, the 2.3 MPixelGS3-PGE-23S6, features color and monochrome versions of the 1/1.2" Sony IMX174 Exmor global shutter CMOS sensor and offers image resolution of 1920 x 1200 and frame rates up to 46 fps. The IMX174 is the first global shutter sensor from Sony and delivers a dynamic range performance of 73 dB while maximizing sensitivity and low light response with a peak quantum efficiency of 76%.
The other model, the 6 MPixel GS3-PGE-60S6 models, features color and monochrome versions of the1" Sony ICX694 global shutter CCD sensor, and offer image resolution of 2736 x 2192 pixels and frame rates up to 13 fps. The ICX694 device uses Sony's ExVIEW HAD CCD II technology, which is targeted for improved near infrared response. Both models will be suitable for use in applications that require longer cable length, such as intelligent traffic systems.
