Both models use 640 x 480 pixel, monochrome, interline transfer CCD with 8/10-bit digital resolution or Bayer color CCD with same performance. CameraLink? interface provides 10-bit image data, CC1 trigger input, and RS232 communications interface. Programmable features include frame rate, electronic shutter, and external trigger.
Imperx, Inc. announces IPX-VGA90 & IPX-VGA120 Fast Programmable Scan Cameras Featuring CameraLink?
October 4, 2004, Boca Raton, FL Imperx, Inc. announces the introduction of their advanced IPX-VGA90 and IPX-VGA120 high-speed progressive scan cameras for machine vision, monitoring of fast processes, surveillance, intelligent transportation systems, character recognition and other applications. The new cameras feature B&W and color versions, programmable operation, CameraLink? output and a frame rate of 90 frames and 120 frames per second (fps), respectively, at full resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.
ˇ¤ The IPX-VGA90 uses a 640 x 480 pixel, monochrome, interline transfer CCD capable of 90 fps output with 8/10-bit digital resolution. The IPX-VGA90C, color version, uses a Bayer color CCD with the same performance.
ˇ¤ The IPX-VGA120 uses a 640 x 480 pixel monochrome interline transfer CCD capable of 120 fps output with 8/10-bit digital resolution. The IPX-VGA120C, color version, uses a Bayer color CCD with the same performance.
Programmable features include resolution, frame rate, electronic shutter, long integration, external trigger, pre-exposure, strobe output, gain and offset. The camera also provides 8/10 bit digital resolution, dynamic gamma and noise resolution and even built-in test patterns! The programmable electronic shutter can stop motion with speeds from 1/90 to 1/40,000 sec. or it can provide time exposures as long as 10 sec for low-light applications.
The camera returns images digitally through its standard CameraLink? interface, providing 10-bit image data, CC1 trigger input and an RS232 communications interface. It also has a level-sensitive trigger input and a strobe output for synchronization with an external light source. The external trigger is asynchronous and optically isolated with programmable pre-exposure of up to 30 msec. Users can program the trigger level at anywhere from 3.3 to 5.0 V.
The camera body is a compact 65 mm x 65 mm x 40 mm (2.56" x 3.56" x 1.58"), and takes a 1/3" C-mount lens. It weighs in at only 330 grams (12.0 oz) and runs off any 12 V DC supply capable of providing 330 mA.
