High-resolution cameras for demanding applications

Prosilica GT 5120 with ON Semi PYTHON 25K runs 4.6 frames per second at 26.2 MP resolution.

The rugged housing optimized for heat dissipation makes Prosilica GT the ideal solution for harsh environments. The various lens control options allow constant adjustment of the image brightness to changing light conditions. Offering resolutions of up to 31 megapixels, they are ideal for high-definition imaging applications with demanding requirements of robustness and design-in flexibility.
