Industrial WidePIX 5X5 consists of 5x5 Timepix tiles. Each Timepix tile is consists of an edgeless silicon sensor. The edgeless sensor technology allows placing all tiles tightly together from all sides. Thus the whole imaging area of the camera is fully sensitive to the radiation - there are no gaps between the tiles in the image. The camera is made robust to address industrial users.

The minimum detectable is typically 5 keV in case of X-ray photons. The intrinsic spatial resolution of the camera is defined by pixel size which is 55 µm. The pixels situated on the border of tiles are 2.5 times larger in one direction. The corner pixels of tiles are 2.5 times larger in both directions.

The camera is connected to the controlling computer via USB 2.0 cable with readout time of 0.65 seconds per frame. The thermal stabilization of the camera is in dependence on environment provided by an active water cooling system with chiller. The power consumption is 25 W.
