Imperx - Industrial Cameras

The C3210 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 P67-C3210 enclosure, lens tube, and robust connectors meet requirements for protection class IP67 and eliminate the need for an external case. The camera offers protection against the ingress of dust, dirt, and water. It also withstands submersion under the water up to 1 meter for 30 minutes and is guaranteed to work in harsh environments.

The C3210 features the Sony Pregius IMX428 Global Shutter CMOS image sensor with a native resolution of 3216 x 2208 in a 1.1” optical format delivering up to 16 frames per second with GigE Vision® Power over Ethernet 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 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 C3210’s flexibility, image quality, and speed make it suitable for a broad range of diverse and demanding applications. By combining the powerful Imperx camera control with an IP67-rated enclosure protecting the camera from dust, water and other contaminants, the P67-C3210 can be utilized in many tough conditions.
