Imperx - Industrial Cameras

C-4420-cmos-cameraThe C4420-T is our most technically advanced, ruggedized, progressive scan digital camera in a compact design ideal for industrial, scientific, medical, aerospace, transportation and other applications. The C4420-T incorporates a number of unique features tailored to reduce system complexity, maximize interface bandwidth, and expand the usable operational range.

The camera is equipped with thermoelectric Peltier cooling module (TEC) to stabilize the image sensor temperature. The TEC module maintains the image sensor temperature at the user specified set point for temperatures up to 20 °C below heat-sink temperature. Decreasing the image sensor temperature minimizes dark current and the number of hot pixels improving image quality for long exposure imaging. Stabilizing the image sensor temperature also reduces variability caused by dark current variation increasing the camera’s precision in metrology applications. A built-in forced air-cooling system increases the efficiency of the TEC and automatically cycles on/off as needed.

The C4420-T features the Sony Pregius IMX367 Global Shutter CMOS image sensor with a native resolution of 4432 x 4436 in a 4/3” optical format delivering up to 28 frames per second with Camera Link® Full Power over Camera Link (PoCL®) output. The camera has excellent sensitivity, fast frame rates, exceptional dynamic range and supports strobe outputs, trigger inputs, automatic exposure, automatic gain control with multiple LUTs, and other high-value functions.

The Imperx Cheetah line provides excellent image quality with Imperx proprietary processing. In addition, Imperx puts you in control and gives you full access to raw data without corrections. Using the simple, intuitive GenICamTM compliant user interface, you can quickly apply image corrections, if desired. The C4420’s flexibility, image quality, and speed make it suitable for a broad range of diverse and demanding applications, but “one size doesn’t fit all,” and Imperx can help optimize the camera to your exact requirements.
