Kaya "Iron" Series Industrial Cameras: Low Cost, Low SWaP, Ruggedized

Small form factor, low weight, low power, low light, low cost in magnificent video quality CMOS sensor industrial cameras

Camera interfaces CoaXPress 12G, CLHS-X 10G, 10GiGE Vision, SDI 12G, and fiber 10G

The Kaya Instruments “Iron” Series cameras are low size, weight, and power (low SWaP), compact, ruggedized, low cost cameras supporting CXP, SDI, CLHS, 10GigE, and fiber interfaces.

The Kaya Iron series of cameras are industrial grade, hardened for military and harsh environments, designed to work in the most challenging and severe conditions including low light, in a small form factor and low weight, and drawing very low power, all at a very competitive price.

The Kaya Iron cameras use either Sony Pregius™ global shutter CMOS sensors with 3.45µm pixel size, or Gpixel global or rollung shutter sensors with a 3.2µm pixel size.

At all resolutions, a uniform focus is achieved by calibration of the sensor's effective image area by pan and tilt relative to the optical axis of the lens.

The Kaya Iron captures high quality video at 2K, 4K, or more, at rates between 60 and 400 frames per second, and transfers data using the CoaXPress standard at 12 Gbps and the corresponding SDI-12, or 10G by fiber optic cable using CLHS X-Protocol, 10GigE Vision, or proprietary fiber interface.

Built-in image enhancement algorithms ensure high image fidelity without compromising maximum resolution or the high frame rate.

These high performance, lightweight, hardened, and low cost cameras are used in applications such as 3D and virtual reality, low light surveillance, perimeter vision, special effects, and military and defense systems.
