Vision Research has introduced the Phantom S991 Machine Vision camera. The Phantom S991 employs CoaXPress-over-Fiber technology to deliver up to 9 Gpx/sec (70 Gbps). This throughput translates to over 900 frames per second (fps) at a full 9 Mpx resolution of 4096 x 2304 and over 52,000 fps at lower resolutions, including 2304 x 16.
The Phantom S991 offers users very high-quality, detailed images. The 9 Mpx sensor in the S991 is the same sensor used in Vision Research’s renowned high-speed media camera, the Phantom Flex 4K. The sensor has 12-bit imaging and provides both rolling and global shutters to meet a variety of application needs. Also, its 6.75 mm pixel is larger than many high-resolution machine vision cameras, translating into higher light sensitivity, with a daylight ISO rating of 1,600 for monochrome and 400 for color in global shutter.
