Bolt HB 127 S 400x275Canada-based Emergent Vision Technologies, which develops high-speed vision technologies, has launched the 127.7-megapixel HB-127-S, the latest addition to its Bolg 25GigE camera portfolio. With its 25GigE SFP28 interface, the camera can capture full resolution (13,400 by 9,528 pixels) images at 19.9 frames per second.

The new camera is available in monochrome and color versions, and features Sony’s IMX661 CMOS image sensor – a 127.7 MP, 56.7 mm CMOS sensor with 3.45 by 3.45 µm pixel size. The camera is compliant with both GigE Vision and GenICam, and it reaches 19.9 fps in 8-bit, 10-bit and 12-bit modes, the company said.

“Evolving machine vision and imaging applications – both on the factory floor and beyond – often requires bleeding-edge technologies suitable for the unique needs of the customer,” said John Ilett, president and CTO of Emergent Vision Technologies. “The HB-127-S gives systems integrators and OEMs who require options for sensor size and speeds a reliable, high-performance camera for machine vision applications.”

The company also launched the Hermes network interface card (NIC) to help users get the most out of the HB-127-S and other Bolt 25GigE cameras. The PH-25-DUAL NIC includes a front port trigger and SFP28 interface that delivers optimal performance for any video stream with minimal CPU and system memory utilization, along with low latency, low jitter and GPUDirect features, the company said.

The company launched its first 25GigE camera in 2018, and now supports camera options from the HB-500-S (0.5 MP, Sony IMX425, 1594.7 fps) all the way up to the new HB-127-S. THe company has more than 10 years shipping 10GigE cameras, five years with the 25GigE, and two years shipping 100GigE cameras.
