JAI Apex Series. Multi-sensor CMOS prism area scan cameras 

New multi-sensor 3-CMOS prism area scan cameras.

Get exceptionally accurate color image data and supreme spatial resolution with the new JAI Apex Series prism area scan cameras.

In nature, no one handles color better than the chameleon…And for color vision systems, no industrial cameras handle color better than the Apex Series from JAI.

As the market leader in prism-based industrial cameras for color imaging, JAI is pleased to announce the new Apex Series CMOS cameras, representing a quantum leap forward in resolution, speed, and color pre-processing functions.

The new Apex Series cameras are 3-CMOS prism-based industrial R-G-B area scan camera providing better color fidelity and spatial resolution than traditional Bayer color cameras.

Bringing advanced color imaging to more applications:
The new AP-3200T cameras introduces a range of new and expanded features to give developers more control and greater flexibility than ever before when designing color-critical imaging systems for applications ranging from printing and packaging, to life sciences, electronics, automotive and more.

The combination of features, performance, and pricing found in the new AP-3200T cameras will enable many more vision designers to step up to the increased value that comes from incorporating a prism-based color camera from JAI.

The AP-3200T with USB interface available now:
The Apex AP-3200T-USB represents a significant advancement over existing 3-sensor cameras available in the market:

  • It has higher resolution! – 3.2 megapixels vs. the previous maximum resolution of 2 megapixels for 3CCD models from JAI.

  • It has 3X more throughput! – 38.3 frames per second for full 3.2-megapixel, 24-bit RGB images. That’s a total throughput of 366 MB/s (vs. a maximum 120 MB/s on previous 3CCD models), making the AP-3200T-USB the world's fastest prism camera at this resolution. 

  • It has a lower price than previous Apex models! – making it easier than ever before for machine vision designers to consider the advantages of 3-sensor prism color technology for their next generation color inspection systems.

The AP-3200T model will soon be available (ultimo February) with  GigE Vision Interface (AP-3200T-PGE) and Power over Mini Camera Link Interface (AP-3200T-PMCL).

Specification highlights for the new CMOS Apex Series cameras:

  • Exceptionally accurate color image data.
  • Better spatial resolution compared to Bayer cameras.
  • 3 x Sony PregiusTM IMX265 CMOS imagers on an RGB prism.
  • 3.2-megapixel resolution (2064 x 1544).
