Iron 2509

9 MP at 290 fps Global Shutter sensor. Small Form Factor CoaXPress 12G ruggedized camera


Innovative Approach – The Iron 2509 is a high speed, low-cost, low-power global shutter CMOS camera with up to 50 Gbps CoaXPress v2.0 interface (Micro-BNC connector) which supports 9 MP high quality video at rates of up to 290fps.

Intelligent Design – Our camera incorporates Gpixel’s GMAX2509 sensor – manufactured in Israel by the company’s Belgian branch. The GMAX2509 is a global shutter sensor with a 2.5µm pixel size. With a compact outline the camera can be fitted into tight spaces. Superior sensor performance allows very low light vision capabilities.

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 39 mm, The Iron CoaXPress 2509 ruggedized camera is designed to fit very small places. The wide range of operating temperatures, spanning from -40°C to 80°C, enables it to function under severe environmental conditions. The high resolution of 4200 x 2160 provides a sensitive high-quality video output at a high speed that would meet almost any need.
