  • 25 fps at full resolution
  • Rugged housing
  • Video-type auto iris

GigE Vision, Sony ICX274 EXview CCD sensor, auto iris, 25 fps

Prosilica GC1600H is a 2.0 Megapixel camera with a GigE Vision compliant Gigabit Ethernet interface and Hirose port. Prosilica GC1600H is offered in both monochrome and color models. This camera incorporates the high quality Type 1/1.8 (8.923 mm diagonal) Sony ICX274 CCD sensor with Super HAD CCD technology that provides superior image quality, excellent sensitivity, and low noise. At full resolution, this camera has a frame rate of 25 frames per second. With a smaller region of interest higher frame rates are possible. By default monochrome models ship with no optical filter and color models ship with an IRC30 IR cut filter.


Benefits and features:

  • Monochrome (GC1600H) and color (GC1600CH) models
  • GigE Vision interface
  • Screw mount RJ45 Ethernet connector for secure operation in industrial environments
  • Supports cable lengths up to 100 meters (CAT-5e or CAT-6)
  • Popular C-Mount lens mount
  • Easy camera mounting via standard M3 threads or optional tripod adapterr
  • Easy software integration with Allied Vision's Vimba SDK and compatibility to the most popular third party image-processing libraries.


  • CS-Mount
  • Optical filters (IR cut filter/Protection glass)

See the Modular Concept for lens mount and optical filter options.
