Innovative Approach – The Iron CXP 462 is an ultra-thin, low-cost, low-power rolling shutter CMOS camera with a CoaXPress v2.1 interface (Micro-BNC connector) that supports high-quality video.

Intelligent Design – Our camera incorporates high sensitivity Sony rolling shutter sensor with a 2.9µm pixel size. With an extremely compact outline, the Iron can be fitted into tight spaces. Superior sensor performance allows very low light vision capabilities.

The CoaXPress interface allows high-speed data transmission for digital imaging in machine vision applications, faster than other standards, such as Camera Link or GigE Vision. Our CoaXPress Iron robust cameras are ideally suited for industrial, defence, and aerospace machine vision systems. With dimensions of 44 x 43x 32 mm, The Iron CoaXPress 462 ruggedized camera is designed to fit very small places. The wide range of operating temperatures, spanning from -40°C to 80°C, enables it to function under severe environmental conditions. The high resolution provides a sensitive high-quality video output at a high speed that would meet almost any need.
