4.1 megapixel industrial camera for extreme environments

Prosilica GT2300 is a 4.1 megapixel camera with a GigE Vision compliant Gigabit Ethernet port and Hirose I/O port. Prosilica GT2300 is offered in both monochrome and color models. This camera incorporates the high-quality ON Semi KAI-04050 TRUESENSE CCD sensor providing excellent monochrome and color image quality. At full resolution, this camera runs 29.3 frames per second. With a smaller region of interest, higher frame rates are possible. It is a rugged camera designed to operate in extreme environments and fluctuating lighting conditions. This camera offers Precise iris lens control allowing users to fix the aperture size to optimize depth of field, exposure, and gain without the need for additional control elements. By default monochrome models ship with no optical filter and color models ship with a Type IRC30 IR cut filter.
