Iron 4502

2.1 MP at 2436 fps Global Shutter sensor. Small Form Factor CoaXPress ruggedized camera

Features

Innovative Approach – The Iron4502 CoaXPress is a low-cost, low-power, high-resolution global CMOS camera with up to 50 Gbps CoaXPress v2.0 interface (Micro-BNC connector) which supports 2.1 MP high-quality video at rates of up to 2436 fps.

Intelligent Design –The GSPRINT 4502 is a global shutter sensor with a 4.5µm 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 75 x 75 x 44.4 mm, The Iron CoaXPress 4502 ruggedized camera is designed to fit very small places. The wide range of operating temperatures, spanning from -40°C to 70°C, enables it to function under severe environmental conditions. The high resolution of 2048×1216 provides a sensitive high-quality video output at a high speed that would meet almost any need.
