Imperx - Industrial Cameras

C-6440-cmos-cameraThe C9440 is our most technically advanced, ruggedized, high resolution digital camera making it ideal for industrial, scientific, medical, aerospace, transportation and other applications. The C9440 incorporates a number of unique features tailored to reduce system complexity, maximize interface bandwidth, and expand the usable operational range.

The C9440 features the GPIXEL GMAX3265 Global Shutter CMOS image sensor with a native resolution of 9344 x 7000 delivering up to 34.7 frames per second with and supports 4-channel CXP-6 CoaXPress w/PoCXP output. CMOS technology eliminates smear columns from areas of ultra-bright intensity and specular reflections in uncontrolled lighting applications. 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 product line provides excellent image quality with Imperx proprietary processing. 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 C9440’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.
