SWaP Cameras

Record the Easy and Affordable Way with a Small camera that Delivers Top Performance

SWaP (small size, weight and power) cameras are developed especially for applications where a small size, weight and energy efficiency are what really count as well as robustness. The Polytec snapshot cameras with a CameraLink interface are characterized by excellent value for money and are free from ITAR export restrictions.
