Innovative Approach – The Iron SDI 462 is an ultra-thin, low-cost, low-power rolling shutter CMOS camera with an SDI interface which supports high quality video at rates up to 60 fps.

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 KAYA SDI cameras are an excellent choice for a lower-cost, high-quality camera. Our SDI Iron robust cameras are ideally suited for industrial, defense, and aerospace machine vision systems. With dimensions of 44 x 44 x 34 mm and super low power consumption, The Iron SDI 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 of up to 1080p provides a sensitive, high-quality video output at high speed that would meet almost any need. Our SDI robust cameras are in use by big industries and manufacturers in virtually any country in the world, as they are suited for an extensive range of purposes.
