Iron SDI 265

1080p at 60fps Global Shutter sensor. Small Form Factor SDI (up to 3G-SDI) ruggedized camera


Innovative Approach – The Iron SDI 265 is a low-cost, low-power global shutter CMOS camera with an SDI interface which supports up to 3G-SDI, enabling 2k video at rates of up to 60fps.

Intelligent Design – This Iron camera incorporates Pregius’s IMX265 global shutter sensor with a 3.45µm 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.

The KAYA SDI cameras are an excellent choice for a lower-cost, high-quality camera. Our SDI Iron robust cameras are ideally suited for industrial, defense, and aerospace machine vision systems. With dimensions of 44 x 44 x 38 mm and super low power consumption, The Iron SDI 265  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 1080p provides a sensitive, high-quality video output at a high speed that would meet almost any need. Our SDI robust cameras are in use by big industries and manufacturers in virtually any country in the world, as they are suited for an extensive range of purposes.
