BOCA RATON, Fla., 6 Nov. 2006. Imperx Inc. in Boca Raton, Fla., is offering two new members of its popular LYNX digital camera line, the IPX-16M3-G and the IPX-16M3-L. Both cameras offer programmable resolution, frame rate, and exposure control to enable users to tailor the camera's operation to the application's needs.
The cameras use a 16 megapixel Kodak KAI-16000 interline-transfer CCD sensor to deliver resolution as fine as 4872 by 3248 pixels. High-speed data clocks allow full-resolution images to transfer at rates as fast as three frames per second (fps) using dual output.
The 16M3-L offers a standard RS-232 port for control and the base CameraLink interface for the image data. The 16M3-G offers a Gigabit Ethernet connection for both control and data, allowing network-controlled installations using the Internet Protocol (IP).
Software support for the 16M3-G includes Windows and Linux drivers, development kits for C++ and Visual Basic, and support for a variety of instrument control packages, including LabView, MIL, Image Pro, Halcon, and Video Savant. Software tools for data acquisition and display, camera configuration, and triggering waveform generation are built in.
The cameras are available in either monochrome or color configurations, offering 8-, 10-, or 12-bit pixel data under software configuration control. The user can also control the image output, resolution, frame rate, analog or digital sensor gain and offset, and image area-of-interest using an intuitive graphical user interface or simple ASCII commands. In addition, the cameras provide built-in gamma correction or can allow users to define their own look-up tables. For more information contact Imperx online at www.imperx.com.
