Mako cameras for machine vision applications

Mako Cameras for Machine Vision


Mako cameras are machine vision cameras designed to fit into any application thanks to their small form factor, industrial housing, and multiple mounting points. Camera features include temperature monitoring, pixel defect masking, storable user sets, and more, offering an excellent price-to-performance ratio with model prices starting from €300.

Latest CMOS Sensor Technologies

Mako cameras feature the latest CMOS sensor technologies including Sony Pregius, CMOSIS/ams, Teledyne e2V, and ON Semi PYTHON. All Mako CMOS models offer excellent image quality, high frame rates, improved noise reduction, and high dynamic range, making them ideal for a wide range of applications from robotics, to quality control, inspection, and surveillance.

Easy Integration

Mako is available in two interface versions: GigE Vision and USB3 Vision. All models offer power supply over the interface, and an image buffer for a reliable and controlled data transfer.
