Spark cameras

JAI has introduced the Spark SP-20000M-PMCL and Spark SP-20000C-PMCL, two 20 megapixel industrial cameras featuring a global shutter and a full frame rate of 30fps. The cameras are the first models in JAI’s new Spark series of high performance industrial cameras.

Incorporating the Cmosis CMV20000 imager, these Spark series cameras offer full frame resolution of 5,120 x 3,840 pixels with a dual Camera Link interface capable of supporting multiple data rates in Base, Medium, or Full configurations. Power can be supplied through the Camera Link connectors using a dual-channel-powered frame grabber, or can be provided via the separate 12-pin connector.

The SP-20000M-PMCL (monochrome) and SP-20000C-PMCL (colour) use Cmosis’ 8-transistor (8T) pixel architecture to implement true correlated double sampling (CDS) for outstanding image quality. A 1:50,000 parasitic light sensitivity ratio minimises global shutter leakage for clean images with sharp contrast. Additional in-camera correction routines have been included to provide significant reductions in pattern noise over previous generations of CMOS cameras.

The combination of speed and resolution makes the SP-20000 ideal for examining flat panel displays, printed circuit boards, and many other applications where detailed inspections are required across a wide area. In addition, the cameras are well-suited to persistent surveillance, border security, aerial mapping, and other outdoor applications. They feature automatic level control (ALC) linking shutter and gain for best exposures under changing light conditions, a built-in dual-slope high dynamic range mode for high contrast imaging situations (monochrome models only), and an extended operating range of -45°C to +70°C, enabling the cameras to handle a variety of harsh temperature environments.

The SP-20000 has user-defined single and multiple region-of-interest (ROI) capabilities. Monochrome models include horizontal and vertical binning for increased sensitivity. All models support horizontal and vertical mirroring.

The cameras accept standard F-mount lenses. Overall dimensions are 62 x 62 x 84.5mm.

Over the next few months, JAI plans to release SP-2000 models with dual CoaXPress and USB3 Vision interfaces.

The Spark cameras are also available from Stemmer Imaging.
