The Sony IMX255 CMOS sensor is compliant with all industrial requirements regarding high resolution, light sensitivity and frame rate. Its readout noise and dark current values are among the lowest on the sensor market. Its capability to deliver 4K images make it suitable for tasks in industrial machine vision and traffic surveillance. In situations with conventional traffic cameras, where one camera must be installed for each lane of traffic, the IMX255 can capture several lanes with a single camera and at the same resolution.

Extremely low dark noise, e.g. for biosciences
