It's New. It's Small. It's Fast. It's the Flea!

 

October 21, 2003 - Featuring a 1/3" Sony CCD sensor available in either the 640x480 resolution at 60FPS or 1024x768 resolution at 30FPS, the camera is guaranteed to deliver excellent image quality at a high frame rate.

Aside from it’s tiny form factor and speed, PGR is also introducing these new features, a 12-bit analog to digital converter and a built-in serial port for control of the camera's local devices.

"It's a one-of-a-kind camera with just the right combination of elements: size, fast frame rate, high quality imaging and price. The Flea will be attractive to a number of imaging applications such as high speed assembly inspection and robot control tasks", says PGR's Vlad Tucakov. "Just as fleas are known to jump 150 times their height, we expect sales of this camera to jump equally high."

Similar to other PGR cameras, the Flea will also support networking of multiple cameras, automatic inter-camera synchronization, general purpose IO pins, extended shutter times and in-field firmware upgrading.

The Flea's full development kit includes the CS mounted camera, IEEE-1394 interface card and cable, tripod mounting adapter, PGRFlycapture C/C++ API, device driver, user manuals and one-year technical support.
