Project Description


Area Camera TAG-5

GigE High Performance Area Camera TAG-5 Series

The TAG-5 is an area-scan CMOS GigE Camera, developed to meet the main requirements Machine Vision market.

Available in different resolutions from VGA to 4 MegaPixels, in both monochrome and color versions, TAG-5 is fully compatible with GigE Vision and GenICam standards, for a rapid software integration in the vision systems.
TAG-5 is characterized by a high frame rate: up to 300 fps for VGA version. This makes it perfectly suitable for applications in which the speed is an important feature.
The extremely compact design (only 34x34x54 mm) and Power over Ethernet supply (PoE) allow a quick and easy installation, at any inspection point.

The camera is equipped with:

  • 1 RS232 serial port
  • 1 digital input
  • 1 digital output

Information Request


The TAG-5 is the new-generation GigE camera platform for Industrial application. It is available in 3 resolutions: from VGA with a frame rate of 300 fps up to 4 Megapixels with a frame rate of 22 fps; all resolutions are available with mono and color sensors.

CMOS Sensor

Based on advanced global shutter CMOS technology and GigE Vision protocol, the TAG-5 will fulfill your application requirement. The frame rate of the camera can be even increased thanks to the windowing features; in fact, the TAG-5 can capture only a portion of the image sensor allowing higher frames rate for smallest region of interest.

GigE Vision PoE

Thanks to the GigE Vision standard protocol, it does not require the use of any frame grabber, and the camera can be easily interfaced to embedded and PC-based vision system. The TAG-5 supports IEEE 1588 precise time protocol, enabling accurate synchronization with multi-camera acquisition In addition to the standard 24 VDC power supply, the camera can be powered by PoE (Power over Ethernet) for easy cabling.


The camera offers a rs232 serial port, one input and one output opto-isolated.
