AM-201CL and AB-201CL cameras

JAI has introduced two 2-Megapixel industrial grade CCD cameras featuring full HDTV resolution (1,920 x 1,080p) at 64fps.

The AM-201CL (monochrome) and AB-201CL (colour) cameras are the second set of cameras from JAI to feature high performance quad-tap CCD sensors from Kodak. Like the previously introduced 8-Megapixel cameras, the new HD cameras use an advanced automatic channel balancing algorithm that continuously adjusts gain and offset of the individual channels of the quad-tap architecture.

The cameras use the quad-tap architecture of the KAI-02150 CCD for rapid image acquisition then combine the four taps into two for monochrome or raw Bayer readout at 64fps. To simplify integration, the two taps are multiplexed via an 80MHz data clock to deliver 8-bit, 10-bit, or 12-bit output over a single-cable Camera Link base configuration.

Alternatively, the AB-201CL colour model can also perform in-camera colour interpolation, producing 24-bit RGB output at 32fps.

The cameras feature user configurable AOI scanning (partial scanning), multiple binning modes (AM-201CL only), and a variety of acquisition modes, including continuous, single-frame, and multi-frame capture, plus a separate PIV mode. Advanced image pre-processing features range from auto gain, auto shutter, and auto white balancing, to pixel blemish compensation, flat field compensation, and a 256-point look-up table for gamma customisation.

The HD-format models incorporate a list of industrial grade features to maximise performance in machine vision environments. These include precise sensor alignment, advanced thermal management, a built-in temperature sensor, and rugged construction with extensive shock and vibration testing performed.

The AM-201CL and AB-201CL cameras support C-mount lenses. Dimensions are 55 (w) x 55 (h) x 69mm (l).
