Pike F-145C

1394b camera with Sony ICX285 sensor – 30 fps

The Pike F-145B/C is equipped with one of the finest sensors, Sony’s ExView HAD CCD ICX285. Furthermore, various real-time pre-processing functions enhance its exceptional image quality. At full resolution, it runs 30 fps. Higher frame rates can be reached by a smaller AOI, binning (b/w), or sub-sampling.


  • 1394b connectors: 2 x copper (daisy chain) or 1 x GOF, 1 x copper, Hirose power: out
  • Various IR cut/pass filters, various lens mounts
  • Angled head, white medical housing

Also available: Pike F-145B/C (-15fps) version – lower framerate, enhanced image quality
