March 7, 2018 – LUCID Vision Labs, Inc., a new designer and manufacturer of unique and innovative industrial vision cameras, today announced the series production of the first models of its new Phoenix camera family. The Phoenix is a micro compact camera measuring only 24 x 24mm, making it the industry’s smallest GigE PoE camera.
The first two models available feature the 2nd generation Sony Pregius IMX265 3.2 Megapixel and the IMX264 5.0 Megapixel global shutter CMOS sensors, running at 38 and 24 fps, respectively. The Phoenix camera has a unique transformable design that can be easily configured to meet a wide range of OEM applications. Its board layout can be tri-folded into a stacked camera where it resembles a traditional cased camera but can also be unfolded into 90 or 180-degree orientations for the ultimate custom fit. The Phoenix further advances industrial miniaturization by offering NF-mount lenses and Hirose’s ix Industrial™ Ethernet connector. The Phoenix camera features a built-in web interface for easy firmware updates with additional capabilities to be added in the near future.
“We’re thrilled to go into production with the first Phoenix models and be able to fulfill the early market demand,” says Rod Barman, Founder and President of LUCID Vision Labs, Inc. “With the launch of the Phoenix, our company has reached a significant milestone by putting our brand-new, efficient and scalable manufacturing facility into operation that will allow us to produce products with exceptional quality that are 100% tested and traceable.”
All LUCID cameras conform to the GigE Vision 2.0 and GenICam3 standards and are supported by LUCID’s own Arena software development kit. The Arena SDK provides customers with easy access to the latest industry standards and software technology. Throughout the year of 2018, LUCID will continue to expand its Phoenix camera family with a range of resolutions and frame rates.
