AM-1600GE and AB-1600GE cameras

Share this on social media:

JAI has released two high-performance 16 Megapixel cameras equipped with standard GigE Vision digital interfaces. The models join the Camera Link versions as part of the Advanced series of the company's C3 Camera Suite.

Like the previous models, the new GigE Vision cameras incorporate the Kodak KAI-16000 dual-tap progressive scan CCD to deliver full 4872 x 3248 pixel resolution at 3fps. The AM-1600GE provides monochrome output, while the AB-1600GE produces raw Bayer colour output for host-based interpolation. Both models feature user-selectable 8-bit, 10-bit, or 12-bit output.

A series of pre-processing functions are built into the camera to achieve high image quality while offloading these tasks from the user's host PC. Available functions include a look-up table (LUT) to adjust image contrast (gamma correction), a built-in blemish compensation function to correct for defective pixels, automatic channel balancing, and a flat-field compensation function (available in monochrome models only) to correct for non-uniform sensor response using per-pixel gain and offset adjustments or image subtraction.

To ensure reliable performance in industrial environments, JAI subjects its cameras to extensive shock and vibration testing. The camera also features a specialised internal heat sink and a ridged housing design that combine to produce exceptional thermal management and low noise operation.

The new models include the same standard features as the Camera Link models, including multiple trigger modes, pre-set or programmable electronic shutter, partial scanning, and 2X2 binning (monochrome models only). In addition, the new GigE models feature a programmable GPIO module with opto-isolated inputs and outputs, and a Sequence Trigger mode that lets users pre-program the cameras for on-the-fly changing of gain, exposure, and region-of-interest (ROI). The cameras are compatible with any GigE Vision/GenICam-compliant application development tools, and are also supported by JAI's own camera control tool and SDK package.

Core applications for the AM-1600GE and AB-1600GE include flat panel LCD inspection, solar panel inspection, PCB inspection, 3D metrology, biometrics, and microscopy, among others. The cameras are also suitable for numerous high-end outdoor uses including high-end security/surveillance, aerial imaging, and traffic applications.  

AM-1600GE and AB-1600GE cameras can be ordered with either P-mount or F-mount lens mounts. Custom lens mount designs are also possible for large quantity orders.
