4 Megapixel CCD camera with high frame rate - Dual port GigE

The 4 Megapixel Prosilica GX2300 is a very high-resolution CCD camera with Gigabit Ethernet output (GigE Vision®). The GX2300 features the high-quality Truesense KAI-04050 image sensor that provides superior image quality, excellent sensitivity and low noise. The GX2300 has 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 GX2300 can also work at half the bandwidth (120 MB/s) using a single cable.
