Small and lightweight

Like all Go Series cameras, the GO-5100-USB measures 29 x 29 x 41.5 mm (excluding lens mount) and weighs only 46 grams enabling it to fit into small spaces or be mounted on vehicles or robot arms where size and weight are critical.

High image quality and dynamic range

The GO-5100-USB leverages the low-noise pixel design of the Sony Pregius IMX250 CMOS imager to provide excellent sensitivity with an efficient, 2/3” optical format thanks to its 3.45-micron pixel size .

Proven reliability in industrial environments

Despite its small size and weight, the GO-5100-USB is built for the real world, with sturdy housings and extensive shock (80G) and vibration (10G) testing to deliver one of the best MTBF ratings of any small camera – over 175,000 hours. A 3-year warranty is standard.
