MicroCam Utility Camera

The MicroCam offers the perfect mix of color imaging capabilities, small size, lighting, radiation tolerance, and economy.

Due to its compact diameter of 1.13” (29mm), this camera is perfectly suited for monitoring reactor activities in confined areas with dry and/or submerged environments and low dose rates. Being an economically friendly choice, the MicroCam is listed at a lower cost than other small-diameter cameras on the market.

This camera is specifically engineered to meet the needs of reactor services and outage teams. Every detail and fidelity remains strong throughout the range of distances, radiation levels, and environmental and lighting conditions. Being environmentally sealed, the MircoCam also has an ultra-wide vibration spec, allowing operation up to 200 feet underwater while staying highly resistant to impact. Additionally, it incorporates a state-of-the-art APS sensor with impressive picture quality, low-light capabilities, and tolerance to radiation.

    High Quality and Reliability

    Like all of Diakont’s products, the MicroCam is designed and manufactured to stringent quality standards. All stages of the production cycle go through factory acceptance testing and are verified through Diakont’s ISO 9001-certified Quality Management System. Radiation testing is also required on all components and completed camera systems to ensure the highest quality camera is produced.
