GigE camera with Sony ICX694 CCD sensor

Manta G-609 is a machine vision camera that incorporates the high quality Type 1 (15.989 mm diagonal) Sony ICX694 CCD sensor with EXview HAD II technology. This sensor has excellent sensitivity and near-infrared response. At full resolution, this camera runs 15.2 frames per second. With a smaller region of interest, higher frame rates are possible. The Manta is one of Allied Vision's versatile GigE Vision cameras with a wide range of features. Particular highlights are the three look-up tables, sophisticated color correction capabilities, a robust metal housing, and many modular options. By default monochrome models ship with B 270 ASG protection glass and color models ship with a Hoya C-5000 IR cut filter.


Benefits and features: 

  • Monochrome (G-609B) and color (G-609C) models
  • GigE Vision interface with Power over Ethernet option
  • Screw mount RJ45 Ethernet connector for secure operation in industrial environments
  • Supports cable lengths up to 100 meters (CAT-5e or CAT-6)
  • Comprehensive I/O functionality for simplified system integration
  • Popular C-Mount lens mount
  • Easy camera mounting via standard M3 threads on top and bottom of housing or optional tripod adapter
  • Easy software integration with Allied Vision's Vimba SDK and compatibility to the most popular third party image-processing libraries
