Quartz Q-4A180/CXP

Share this on social media:

Adimec has introduced the Quartz Q-4A180/CXP area scan camera supporting a dual CoaXPress interface. This camera delivers the performance and cost benefits of the CoaXPress standard, and combines global shutter CMOS technology with Adimec's True Accurate Imaging. This results in CCD-like image quality with unmatched speed. The Q4A180/CXP transmits 180fps at a 2,048 x 2,048 resolution with 10 bits per pixel over two standard coaxial cables with lengths over 60m without repeaters.

The dual CoaXPress interface of the camera supports the CXP-5 configuration of the standard. It utilises two standard coaxial cables, each with a maximum transmission rate of 5Gb/s over 60m. The costs of these cables are one-tenth of a single Camera Link cable, while enabling far greater transmission length without additional costs of repeaters or extenders. The CoaXPress standard also supports power over cable, reducing the need for a separate power connection.

The camera offers a range of quality-enhancing features. Advanced flat field correction (FFC) capabilities, even in colour and with field calibration support, deliver better image uniformity. The camera delivers signal-to-noise improvements of up to 12dB shot noise improvement compared to off-the-shelf CMOS sensor performance. It also offers an HDR mode for large scene dynamic capture capabilities. With CoaXPress, this quality data is now available at maximum resolution and speed in true 10 bits per pixel.

The Q-4A180/CXP camera is available in monochrome or colour models, and offers optional near infrared (NIR) capabilities. Solutions with anti-reflection coatings are supported to maximise the application performance.
