Prosilica GX 1050

Prosilica GX

  • 240 MBps with dual port LAG technology
  • 3-axis motorized lens control
  • High frame rate at full bit depth
  • ON Semi KAI-01050 sensor

ON Semi KAI-01050 industrial camera, Global shutter, 112 fps

Prosilica GX1050 is a high resolution CCD camera with dual GigE Vision® output. It features the ON Semiconductor KAI-01050 CCD sensor with global shutter. At full resolution, this camera has a frame rate of 112 frames per second (dual GigE mode). With a smaller region of interest higher frame rates are possible. Prosilica GX1050 is offered as monochrome and color models. This camera has two screw-captivated Gigabit Ethernet ports configured as a Link Aggregation Group (LAG) to provide a sustained maximum data rate of 240 MBps. It can also work at half the bandwidth (120 MBps) using a single cable. By default monochrome models ship with no optical filter and color models ship with an IRC30 IR cut filter.


Benefits and features:

  • Monochrome (GX1050) and color (GX1050C) models
  • Dual GigE ports can be configured as a Link Aggregation Group (LAG), single GigE and dual GigE modes
  • Screw mount RJ45 Ethernet connectors for industrial environments
  • Supports cable lengths up to 100 meters (CAT-5e or CAT-6)
  • ON Semiconductor KAI-01050 (Gen2) Type 1/2 CCD sensor
  • Support for popular third party image-processing libraries
