The fastest Gigabit Ethernet cameras in the world - 240MB/s

The Prosilica GX cameras are fast, compact machine vision cameras with Gigabit Ethernet interface (GigE Vision®). The GX-Series have two screw-captivated Gigabit Ethernet ports configured as a Link Aggregation Group (LAG) to provide a sustained maximum data rate of 240 MBytes per second. The Prosilica GX can also work at half the bandwidth (120 MB/s) using a single cable.

  • Very Fast - 240 MB/s
  • 3-axis motorized lens control and video-type autoiris
  • Single or dual Ethernet port operation
  • 1 to 29 Megapixel
  • Fast frame rates upto 112 fps
  • Truesense KAI or Sony quad-tap CCD sensors
  • Modular options available
