Iron 253

Sony Pregius IMX253 Camera

Features

Innovative Approach – Iron CoaXPress 253 is a low-cost low-power global shutter CMOS camera with CoaXPress 12G interface which supports 12.29 MP high quality video at rates up to 63.8fps.

Intelligent Design – This Iron camera incorporates Sony Pregius IMX253 global shutter sensor with 3.45µm pixel size. With compact outline and low power design this 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 35.3 mm, The Iron CoaXPress 253 ruggedized camera is designed to fit very small places. The wide range of operating temperatures, spanning from -30°C to 70°C, enables it to function under severe environmental conditions. The high resolution of 4096 x 3000 provides a sensitive high-quality video output at a high speed that would meet almost any need.
