The TM-2016-8, a member of JAI Pulnix’s AccuPiXEL line of cameras, is a 2.1 Megapixel camera with a one-inch progressive scan CCD. This machine vision camera features a Kodak KAI-2093M imager and is available in two versions: Camera Link and LVDS (RS-644). Featuring 1920 x 1080 resolution and with large 7.4µm square pixels, the camera includes 8-bit output with lookup table. Similar to HDTV, the pixels are arranged in a 2K x 1K, 16:9 aspect ratio.
The TM-2016-8’s progressive scan provides full vertical and horizontal resolution at up to 8fps. Two-row binning can be used to achieve 16fps. The TM-2016-8 features full asynchronous reset with electronic shutter up to 1/10,000 sec or pulse-width exposure control, which allows triggered image capture and processing. The housing measures 44mm x 44mm x 64mm and accepts standard C-mount lenses. The TM-2016-8’s 2:1 aspect ratio makes it suited to a variety of machine vision applications, especially those requiring a wide field of view. These include airborne imaging, head-up displays, ITS (intelligent transportation systems), online inspection, defence, microscopy, medical imaging, PIV/measurement, and motion analysis.
