• 3.2 Megapixels 1/1.8" Color CCD camera with Sony ICX252
  • IEEE1394A Interface. Peltier Cooled


Scientific grade 2K, Compact camera for:

Microscopy, Ophthalmology, Pathology, Histology, Intelligent Traffic Systems, Fluorescence, Low light, Cytometry and Cellometry


Note: XIMEA can still produce this model, but stable operation is guaranteed only up to Windows 7 Prof. SP1. This is not fundamental, but camera would not be functional together with new cameras from XIMEA.
