  • 3-axis motorized lens control
  • 4 fps at full resolution
  • ON Semi KAI-29050 sensor

GigE Vision, ON Semi KAI-29050 CCD sensor, Global shutter, 4 fps

Prosilica GX6600 is a very high resolution CCD camera with GigE Vision® output. It features the ON Semiconductor KAI-29050 quad-tap CCD sensor that provides superior image quality, excellent sensitivity, and low noise. At full resolution, this camera has a frame rate of 4 frames per second. With a smaller region of interest higher frame rates are possible. Prosilica GX6600 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 (GX6600) and color (GX6600C) models
  • Dual GigE interface can be configured as a Link Aggregation Group (LAG), single GigE and dual GigE modes
  • ON Semiconductor KAI-29050 (Gen2) Type 35mm CCD sensor with low noise, high sensitivity, and excellent smear performance
  • Support for popular third-party image processing libraries
