Iron 2020BSI Camera Link High Speed Compatible

4 MP at 74 fps Rolling Shutter sensor. Small Form Factor 10Gbps ruggedized camera


Innovative Approach – The Iron 2020BSI Camera Link High Speed Compatible is a low-cost, low-power rolling shutter CMOS camera, with Camera Link High Speed compatible interface which supports 4MP high quality video at rates up to 135fps.

Intelligent Design – Our camera incorporates GPIXEL’s GSENSE2020BSI rolling shutter sensor with a 6.5μm pixel size. With a compact outline and low-key design, the Iron can be fitted into tight spaces. Superior sensor performance allows very low light vision capabilities.
