Imperx Launches 8.1 MP Cheetah Cameras with UV-Sensitive Sony Pregius S Image Sensor

Imperx’s new digital CMOS cameras employ SONY 4th generation Pregius STM IMX487 image sensor for ultraviolet imaging and applications.


BOCA RATON, FLORIDA – June 8, 2023 

Imperx, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of ruggedized industrial cameras and imaging systems, announces the release of the new Cheetah CMOS camera featuring the 4th generation Sony Pregius S image sensor.

The new Cheetah CLF-C2820, POE-C2820, and P67-C2820 cameras are designed for a wide range of UV applications. The cameras use Sony Pregius S IMX487 global shutter CMOS 8.1 MP image sensor capturing images in the UV spectral range from 200 nm to 400 nm and delivering up to 59 frames per second with Camera Link® output. The camera is also available with GigE Vision® with PoE output and IP67-rated protective housing for harsh environments.

The Pregius S technology uses a stacked backside-illuminated (BSI) pixel structure offering reduced pixel size of 2.74 µm, increased peak quantum efficiency, and improved sensitivity with fast lenses. Sony’s global shutter technology combined with BSI pixels provides distortion-free images of fast-moving objects while the BSI pixel architecture improves charge capacity supporting over 12-bits of inter-scene dynamic range.

This powerful design translates to high desirability in many industrial applications including infrastructure inspection, sorting materials, mask inspection, printing inspection, semiconductor manufacturing, printed circuit board inspection, scientific imaging, metrology, high-resolution microscopy, UV spectroscopy, fluorescence analysis, food processing, astronomy, machine vision and many more demanding applications.

Key Features Include:

  • UV spectral range from 200 nm to 400 nm
  • Enhanced UV sensitivity and minimal noise
  • Camera Link® with PoCL®, GigE Vision® with PoE outputs
  • Industrial grade components able to withstand extreme temperatures:
    • -30 °C to +75 °C Operating
  • High shock and vibration tolerance: 20G (20 – 200 Hz XYZ) / 100G
  • Quality manufacturing: ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015
  • MIL-STD-810G
