Machine Vision Cameras

Imperx Cheetah

The Cheetah is the first CMOS camera from Imperx. This high performance industrial camera is available in 6, 12 and 25 megapixel resolution.

Latest CMOS sensor technology

Utilising the latest sensor technology from OnSemi, the KAC-06040, KAC12040 and Python NOIP1SN025KA image sensors offer fantastic image quality even in low light conditions.

High resolution & high speed image capture means up to 6 megapixels at 135fps, 12 megapixels at 70fps and 25 megapixels at 26fps.

Choice of interface

The 6 megapixel and 12 megapixel Cheetah industrial cameras are available as either CameraLink or CoaXPress output. The 25 megapixel camera is available as either USB3 Vision, CameraLink or PoCL output. Multipix Imaging offer a range of compatible frame grabber interfaces and cables for ease of integration and support.

This camera is not only intended for typical machine vision applications, but is also ideal for surveillance, reconnaissance, aerospace and intelligent traffic systems.

Powerful camera features

Due to the unique feature set of the KAC sensors and Imperx’s extensive know-how this is one of the most flexible machine vision cameras available. Here’s are just a few highlights;

  • Global or rolling shutter
  • Large 4.7-micron pixels for excellent image performance
  • Excellent near infrared (NIR) sensitivity
  • Exceptional blooming suppression
  • Dual Video Capability
  • Independent resolution, gain, offset, pixel averaging, decimation, ROI and XDR
  • Seamless switching between frames
  • Manual, auto or triggered frame switching
Using an Imperx Cheetah industrial camera

Some examples of the capabilities of the Cheetah CMOS camera line:

  • Set one frame to average colour pixels 4:1 reducing a 3840 x 2160 area of interest down to 1080P at 30 fps, then capture full resolution frames upon trigger signal providing a low resolution video stream for contextual info and high resolution frames for analytics.
  • Set one frame to high sensitivity rolling shutter mode and one to wide dynamic range global then toggle between the frames and combine them in your software for the ultimate low noise wide dynamic range imagery.
  • Set up one frame as a low resolution video stream over the complete field of view, and define a smaller area of interest at full resolution in the second frame to easily track an object of interest.
  • Capture stunning 6 or 12 megapixel images, at high frame rates, for further processing such as medical imaging, industrial inspection , traffic and transport and so on.
