NIR optimized camera with Sony ICX285, excellent anti-blooming

The Manta G-145B NIR is an NIR optimized camera with the popular Sony ICX285 EXview HAD sensor. Besides the enhanced NIR sensitivity, it is distinguished by an excellent anti-blooming. The Manta G-145B NIR provides three modes with higher frame rates or higher NIR sensitivity. These modes are switchable during operation. Like all other Mantas, the G-145B NIR is available with many modular options like angled heads, board level versions, or optional PoE (Power over Ethernet). 

  • Sony ICX285 (type 2/3), EXview HAD CCD, enhanced NIR sensitivity
  • Three switchable modes with higher NIR sensitivity or higher frame rates
  • Trigger
    • External trigger event: rising/falling/any edge, level high/low
    • External trigger delay: 0 to 60 seconds in 1 µs increments
  • Sync modes
