28.8 megapixel industrial camera with GigE Vision interface

Prosilica GT6600 is a 28.8 megapixel camera with a GigE Vision compliant Gigabit Ethernet port and Hirose I/O port. This camera incorporates the high quality ON Semi KAI-29050 TRUESENSE Gen 2 CCD sensor providing excellent monochrome and color image quality. At full resolution, this camera runs 4 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. It is a large format housing camera with a standard F-Mount lens mount.

By default, monochrome models ship with no optical filter and color models ship with a Type IRC30 IR cut filter.
