The Aerospace Industry is an ideal match for the Imperx camera portfolio. Imperx is a proud MADE IN THE USA manufacturer and supports the Aerospace Industry through the offering of our reliable, tough and competitively priced Aerospace imaging camera models. By adhering to strict quality protocols, Imperx’s rugged Aerospace imaging products are made to last and meet the demand our worldwide customers have come to rely on.
Imperx products include a wide spectrum of cameras from VGA to 47 megapixels. Our small resolution cameras are optimized for the most demanding Aerospace needs. Don't let our cameras’ tiny design fool you! Imperx cameras are available in Gigabit Ethernet (GigE Vision®) with Power over Ethernet (PoE) as the latest in common standards providing up to 100 meters of distance and Camera Link® with Power over Camera Link® (PoCL) for larger bandwidth needs. Both of the standards provide power and data over a single cable.
Imperx’s Tiger, Cheetah and Bobcat 2.0 are advanced, rugged and extremely programmable camera lines manufactured with the Aerospace market in mind. Imperx CCD cameras are fully programmable using the easy-to-use Imperx camera configuration software. The cameras provide many ways to trigger the camera and synchronize it to external lighting, events or other cameras. The remarkable Tiger cameras use larger, faster sensors (4/3” to 57mm optical formats) and advanced processing technology to meet ever more demanding applications. Camera resolutions include 47, 29, 16, 8.6, 8, and 4 megapixels and offer a broad range of frame rates. Ruggedized and Industrial versions assure performance and value.
Imperx CMOS Cheetah cameras give you control over your imaging with a wide range of models, features, and programming options, perfect for your Aerospace imaging needs. Advanced CMOS technology and Imperx engineering expertise provision cameras with excellent uniformity for the highest levels of image quality, unique features like wide dynamic range, flexible trigger/strobe options, and a choice of Camera Link™, USB3 Vision™, GigE Vision™, and 3G-SDI interfaces.
Imperx Aerospace cameras feature a thermally optimized design, 14-bit internal data processing, 8, 10, 12 or 14-bit selectable output, low noise and greater than 60dB dynamic range. Imperx uses interline transfer CCD sensors and are available in color, monochrome and TRUESENSE Sparse CFA options.
All Imperx Aerospace cameras use industrial grade components assuring dependable use with an extended temperature range of -40˚C to +85˚C and shock/vibration performance of >1000G/100G. The Imperx design is a MIL SPEC 810F product and has a certification of MTBF of > 660,000 hours @ 40˚C (Telcordia SR-332). The extremely low power and small design is effective in small spaces. Imperx offers selectable mount options to support almost any lens in the market.
Image Control – See what you have been missing….
Imperx Aerospace camera lines includes features such as analog gain control from 0 to 36 dB (1024 steps), pre-amplifier gain control, digital gain control and digital bit shift. With the use of look up tables, programmable knee corrections or image enhancement, the user can see what was originally not visible. These features provide the user the ability to create the optimal image intensity and optimize noise performance. The camera will handle color adjustments and real time auto-white balance, auto-tap balance, defective and hot pixel correction, dynamic noise correction and flat field correction for an even image intensity.
The Automatic Gain and Exposure Controls allow the camera image to normalize in dynamically changing lighting conditions including bright sunlight, dusk, dawn, water and cloud glare. Imperx provides a fast convergence with histogram for a smooth transition, but extremely accurate exposure/gain control. The user can program the minimum and maximum limit of exposure so the camera can properly throttle the gain for optimal average intensity without motion smear.
The Imperx Aerospace cameras are compatible with a variety of lenses and lens mounts (CS, C, T, M42, F, Canon EOS, Rodenstock or any custom). Whether the application requires: fixed focus, fixed iris, an auto-iris, auto-focus or a full 3 motor (focus, zoom and iris) lens, the camera is equipped to handle any of these options. The lens is fully controllable through the camera GUI or SDK.
Extended Temperature Range/Lifespan
Imperx cameras are manufactured with industrial grade components, which provide confidence that the cameras will always be running. Many Aerospace applications require rugged components that can withstand extreme temperatures and environments. Imperx Aerospace cameras have an MTBF > 660,000 hours @ 40˚C. This certification provides the security that a production line will not stop due to the camera failing. In addition, OEMs can be reassured that support will not be required due to the camera whether around the block or on the other side of the world.
