Mako G-503 is an industrial GigE camera with the Aptina MT9P031 (mono) / MT9P006 (color) sensor. Mako cameras have the same compact form factor and the same mounting positions as many analog cameras. All models include PoE, three optocoupled outputs, and a 64 MB image buffer. The image quality profits from the precisely aligned sensors. 


  • Various IR cut/pass filters, protection glass, various lens mounts
  • White medical housing
