The IK-53N and the IK-52N monochrome, 768x494 resolution, "ice-cube" machine vision cameras are 29-mm square, weigh 1.59 oz. and eliminate the need for a CCU. The IK-52N has a 1/2-in. CCD, while the IK-53N has a 1/3-in. CCD. Minimum subject illumination is 0.5 lux is IK-53N, and 0.4 lux for the IK-52N.

Both are compatible with most standard frame grabbers, and can use a wide range of off-the-shelf, cost-effective C-mount lenses.
