12.5 Megapixel machine vision camera for extended temperature ranges

Prosilica GT4090 is a 12.5 Megapixel camera with a GigE Vision compliant Gigabit Ethernet port and Hirose I/O port. Prosilica GT4090 is offered a monochrome model. This camera incorporates the high quality ON Semi PYTHON 12K (NOIP1SN012KA) CMOS sensor with In-pixel Correlated Double Sampling global shutter technology. At full resolution, this camera runs 9.58 frames per second. With a smaller region of interest, higher frame rates are possible. Prosilica GT4090 is a rugged camera with a robust thermal housing that is designed to operate in extended temperature ranges and fluctuating lighting conditions. It is a large format housing camera with a standard F-Mount lens mount. By default monochrome models ship with no optical filter.
