COPENHAGEN, Denmark, April 23, 2015 — The Sweep series of monochrome industrial line-scan cameras from JAI AS are now available with the CoaXPress interface standard. Camera Link models were released previously.
The CoaXPress interface offers lower-cost cables, longer cable lengths, and a single-cable solution to provide image data, camera control and power.
The SW-2000M-CXP-80 camera is based on a custom-built CMOS sensor with 2048-pixel resolution, 20 × 20-μm pixels and scan rates up to 80,000 lines per second.
The large pixels enable faster exposures and lower modulation transfer function requirements, making the camera less dependent on high-quality lenses to achieve the required image quality.
When set to high dynamic range mode, the camera's quantum well can contain as many as 360,000 electrons, delivering images with more than 9 valid bits (a signal-to-noise ratio of 580:1).
In vision inspection situations where the scene light is limited, the camera can be switched to responsive mode, collecting 60,000 electrons. The quantum well then fills up six times as fast, providing a higher response on the gray scale. The resulting images have greater brightness and better contrast.
