Phantom S711 High-Speed Machine Vision Camera

The Phantom S711 by Vision Research is an advanced high-speed machine vision camera designed to deliver exceptional performance and flexibility for a wide range of applications. Capable of achieving nearly 250,000 fps at reduced resolutions, the S711 supports high-speed imaging with unparalleled precision. With a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800 and a pixel size of 20 μm, this camera ensures detailed and clear imaging.

The Phantom S711 employs CoaXPress-over-Fiber (CXPoF) with CXP-12, the latest in high-speed machine vision technology, providing high throughput and ease of use with low latency data transfer. The camera also features multiple Regions of Interest (ROI) capabilities, allowing users to focus on critical parts of an event, optimize data transfer, and achieve higher frame rates.


  • Extreme High-Speed Imaging: Achieves nearly 250,000 fps at reduced resolutions.

  • High Throughput: Delivers up to 7,360 fps at 1280 x 800 resolution using CoaXPress-over-Fiber (CXPoF) with CXP-12.

  • Multiple ROI’s: Up to 2 flexibly located Regions-of-Interest to optimize data transfer and capture efficiency.

  • Low Latency Data Transfer: Reliable data transfer with very low latency using CoaXPress-over-Fiber technology.
