FireWire Cameras

December 22, 2009


The Firefly MV FFMV-03M2 uses a 1/3-inch wide-VGA CMOS sensor with global shutter to deliver high quality 752 by 480 monochrome or raw Bayer color images at 60 frames per second (fps), and offers a 2 by 2 binning mode for frame rates up to 135 fps. The camera’s CS-mount lens holder incorporates a removable glass (monochrome cameras) or IR cut filter (color cameras) that protects the image sensor against dust and ensures image quality. A board-level option, which measures 40 by 25 millimeters, is available. In addition, the IEEE 1394a (FireWire) versions of the company’s Firefly MV digital camera family now come housed in a lightweight and durable plastic case. Designed for Firefly MV FFMV-03M2 camera models, the compact 44 by 24 by 34 millimeter enclosure protects the camera’s printed circuit board from physical damage, minimizing system downtime due to repairs or replacements.
