Iron Small Form Factor Ruggedized Camera

Iron 253  is an industrial grade, small form factor, low power camera which is capable of providing the best quality video under most challenging and severe conditions. Pan/tilt calibration of sensors’ effective image area vs lens’ optical axis allows getting uniform focus through the acquired picture nevertheless resolution.

Built-in image enhancement algorithms help to catch the clear-cut images while keeping a maximum resolution and frame rate. This camera presents the magnificent quality of Sony Pregius™ global shutter CMOS sensor with excellent low light performance.
