5GigE area scan camera platform

03 October 2022

Teledyne FLIR has launched the Forge 5GigE area scan camera family for machine vision. Constructed on an all-new platform, Forge is designed to provide the richest combination of advanced imaging features and is engineered to handle the most complex vision system challenges.

The first models will extend its Genie Nano 5GigE sensor offering by integrating 5 to 24 MP Sony Pregius Gen 4 Global Shutter CMOS sensors. In addition to supporting link speeds of 1, 2.5, and 5GigE, Forge offers burst mode to capture images at speeds up to 10Gb/sec into memory. This, combined with a 500mb image buffer, allows engineers to rapidly capture information in bursts for high-speed applications. It’s Trigger-to-Image Reliability (T2IR) framework giving engineers tools to develop reliable and robust systems faster.

The Forge feature set includes PoE, strong thermal management, and opto-isolated triggering for streamlined peripherals and easier camera control. System engineers can replace current GigE Vision compliant cameras with Forge cameras to upgrade their system performance without changing application software. 

Additionally, Forge cameras support both Teledyne Spinnaker and Sapera LT SDKs and GigE Vision compliant software packages.  Forge is said to be suited to high-speed applications in factory automation for electronics inspection, food processing, pharmaceuticals, and for virtual reality motion capture.
