Medical Cameras

Imperx manufactures Industrial and Ruggedized CCD and CMOS cameras featuring high sensitivity and high dynamic range sensors for many Medical applications. With an easy to utilize, yet very powerful feature set, Imperx will help make any Medical imaging application a success. Imperx Medical cameras are made to work in a range of applications including inspection of tissue and cells, ophthalmological equipment and robotic surgery. With the high quality and precision of each camera, they are often utilized in both digital inspection and lab environments. Imperx’s manufacturing process ensures every camera is precisely aligned; therefore, results are repeatable.

Imperx Medical cameras include a wide spectrum of cameras from VGA to 47 megapixels. Don't let our cameras’ tiny design fool you, this powerful imaging tool is capable of integrating with any PLC, provides pre-processing to assist any software and has a dual clock design to gain more speed and efficiency. Built in the USA!

Imperx Medical cameras are available in Gigabit Ethernet (GigE Vision®) with Power over Ethernet (PoE) as the latest in common standards providing up to 100 meters of distance and Camera Link® with Power over Camera Link® (PoCL) for larger bandwidth needs. Both of the standards provide power and data over a single cable.

Imperx’s Tiger, Cheetah and Bobcat 2.0 are advanced, rugged and extremely programmable camera lines manufactured with the Medical markets taken into account. Imperx CCD cameras are fully programmable using the easy-to-use Imperx camera configuration software. The cameras provide many ways to trigger the camera and synchronize it to external lighting, events or other cameras. The remarkable Imperx Tiger cameras use larger, faster sensors (4/3” to 57mm optical formats) and advanced processing technology to meet ever more demanding applications. Camera resolutions include 47, 29, 16, 8.6, 8, and 4 megapixels and offer a broad range of frame rates. Ruggedized and Industrial versions assure performance and value.

Imperx CMOS Cheetah cameras give you control over your imaging with a wide range of models, features, and programming options, perfect for all of your Medical imaging needs. Advanced CMOS technology and Imperx engineering expertise provision cameras with excellent uniformity for the highest levels of image quality, unique features like wide dynamic range, flexible trigger/strobe options, and a choice of Camera Link™, USB3 Vision™, GigE Vision™, and 3G-SDI interfaces.

Imperx Medical cameras feature a thermally optimized design, 14-bit internal data processing, 8, 10, 12 or 14-bit selectable output, low noise and greater than 60dB dynamic range. Imperx uses interline transfer CCD sensors and are available in color, monochrome and TRUESENSE Sparse CFA options.

All Imperx Medical cameras use industrial grade components assuring dependable use with an extended temperature range of -40˚C to +85˚C and shock/vibration performance of >1000G/100G. The Imperx design is a MIL SPEC 810F product and has a certification of MTBF of > 660,000 hours @ 40˚C (Telcordia SR-332). The extremely low power and small design is effective in small spaces. Imperx offers selectable mount options to support almost any lens in the market.

Digital Medical Cameras

Programmable Flexibility

Imperx Medical cameras provide selectable binning modes up to 8x independent vertical and horizontal. Our Medical cameras also offer up to 7 ROIs for data reduction or faster readout. Each ROI can be enabled or disabled, included or excluded and programmable to any resolution to 2x2. The exposure time is easily programmable in 1 microsecond increments down to 10 microseconds up to 16 seconds which is essential to many Medical applications.

Imaging Control

Imperx Medical cameras feature an optimal design focused on sensor performance. Our Medical cameras feature pre-amplifier gain control, standard gain amplifier control from 0 to 36dB in 1024 steps and up to 3x digital gain control to provide the greatest signal enhancements with the lowest noise possible. Other camera features include digital bit shifting and dynamic transfer function corrections to make hard-to-see objects visible.

Color Sensitivity

Imperx Medical cameras provide several sensor options for color sensitivity. For standard low light sensitivity, Imperx has an array of EXview HAD sensors from Sony with sensitivity of .2 LUX. Our Medical cameras also support the Sparse CFA line of sensors from TRUESENSE which offers 2x to 4x the light sensitivity compared to standard Bayer pattern color sensors.
