IO Industries Flare 12M180-CX

High Resolution 12 Megapixels

The Flare 12M180-CX reaches up to 187 fps at a resolution of 4096 x 3072 pixels. At a resolution of 512 x 512 pixels up to 1,900 fps can be achieved. The integrated CMOS sensor CMV12000 with pipelined global shutter and correlated double sampling (CDS) provides for very high dynamics, high sensitivity with low noise levels and short exposure times. The high-speed camera is available as a S / W color and NIR version.

8 or 10 bit per pixel output (10 bit ADC). The camera can be operated in free run or external trigger mode.

In addition to F-mount a C-mount lens connection is possible. The power consumption of 9.5 W at 12V-24V input voltage is 12-Pin Hirose or via Power Over CoaXPress (PoCXP). Control is carried out as well on the CoaxPress interface.
