Machine Vision for Defence

Machine Vision industrial cameras are widely used within the Defence arena.

The nature of the applications require rugged, heavy-duty cameras for a variety of industrial, manufacturing & business applications, including Optical Inspection, LCD inspection (Dead Pixel cameras), Linescan, Medical Imaging (endoscopy, microscopes), Military and Aerial Mapping.

High resolution CCD cameras are available with resolutions up to 29 mega-pixel, and are available with a variety of interfaces, including CameraLink, Gige, HD-SDI and CoaXPress. Cameras with bult-in imaging processing, built-in programmable corrections, auto-exposure, auto-gain, auto-Iris control, and programmable exposure with precision up to one micro second make great choices for military applications.

IMPERX Bobcat 2.0 is an advanced, rugged and extremely programmable camera series focused on the military and aerospace market. Bobcat 2.0 cameras feature a thermally optimised 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 colour, monochrome and TRUESENSE Sparse CFA options.

All 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.


IO Industries Flare

IO Industries Flare uses the latest CMOSIS sensor technology to provide cameras of high speed, high resolution and excellent image quality.

The Flare megapixel series is a part of a family of industrial video cameras designed with advanced

CMOS image sensors. These sensors feature high pixel counts, producing highly detailed images. As well, this sensor features very fast readout, allowing frame rates into the hundreds of frames per second. Adjustable region of interest settings and subsampling features allow lower-resolution output formats at much higher frame rates. This flexibility makes the Flare series effective in applications ranging from high-speed motion analysis to automated optical inspection systems and more.
