Image Control – See what you have been missing….

Imperx Inspection cameras include 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.

Auto Exposure/Gain

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 Inspection cameras provide 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.

Lens Control

The Imperx Inspection 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 Inspection cameras are manufactured with industrial grade components, which provide confidence that the cameras will always be running. Many Inspection applications require rugged components that can withstand extreme temperatures and environments. Imperx Inspection 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.
