Iron 2020BSI-UV

4 MP at 74 fps Rolling Shutter sensor. Small Form Factor CoaXPress 12G ruggedized UV camera


Innovative Approach – The Iron 2020BSI is a high speed, low-cost, low-power rolling shutter CMOS camera with up to 12.5 Gbps CoaXPress v2.0 interface (Micro-BNC connector) which supports 4 MP high quality video at rates of up to 74fps.

Intelligent Design – Our camera incorporates Gpixel’s GSENSE2020BSI super sensitive sensor – a rolling shutter sensor with a 6.5µm pixel size. With a compact outline the camera can be fitted into tight spaces. Superior sensor performance allows very low light vision capabilities and compatible with UV applications.

The CoaXPress interface allows high-speed data transmission for digital imaging in machine vision applications, faster than other standards, such as Camera Link or GigE Vision. Our CoaXPress Iron robust cameras are ideally suited for industrial, defense, and aerospace machine vision systems. With dimensions of 44 x 44 x 51.8 mm, The Iron CoaXPress 2020BSI-UV ruggedized camera is designed to fit very small places. The wide range of operating temperatures, spanning from -40°C to 85°C, enables it to function under severe environmental conditions. The high resolution of 2048 x 2048 provides a sensitive high-quality video output at a high speed that would meet almost any need.
