New high-speed monochrome line scan cameras


Launch of new Sweep high-speed monochrome line scan cameras: Sweep SW-4000M-PMCL and Sweep SW-8000-PMCL.

JAI expands the Sweep Series with two new high-speed monochrome line scan cameras with the model names: SW-4000M-PMCL and SW-8000M-PMCL.

For high-speed inspection applications:
The SW-4000M-PMCL camera features a 4K (4096 pixels) custom designed CMOS monochrome line sensor (APS-C), delivering a scan rate of up to 200 kHz (200,000 lines/second) via a Power-over-mini-Camera-Link interface.

The other new monochrome model – Sweep SW-8000M-PMCL – features an 8K (8192 pixels) CMOS line sensor (also custom designed) delivering a scan rate as high as 100 kHz (100,000 lines/second) via a Mini Camera Link interface.

These two new high-speed cameras are presently among the fastest cameras on the market with 4096 pixels and 8192 pixels, making them very suitable for demanding line scan applications such as web inspection (paper, plastic), print inspection, document scanning, parcel/postal sorting, electronic/wafer inspection, and sports imaging finish line applications.

Specified for demanding industrial environments:
Both cameras are built to JAI’s high shock (80G) and vibration (10G) standards to keep them running fast, year after year. With small dimension: 62(H) x 62(W) x 48(L) mm; a weight of only 320 g; an ambient operating temperature range of -5 C to +45 C together with a low power consumption (5.22W), these new JAI monochrome line scan cameras are built to operate and last in even the most demanding industrial environments - providing users with low-cost-of-ownership.

Two light collection modes (SW-4000M-PMCL only):
The SW-4000M-PMCL model can be set in two different quantum well modes. In mode A the camera is set to a small quantum well and mode B with a large quantum well.

Mode B:
When SW-4000M-PMCL runs in mode B (large well) the quantum well can hold a larger amount of electrons, providing images with higher signal/noise ratios and higher dynamic range (better image contrast). (NB: Stronger scene light is needed to run in mode B).

Mode A:
In some applications, highest image quality is not paramount. Instead, the challenge is to achieve brighter images and better image contrast in scenes with lower light levels. In these situations, the camera can be set to mode A.

In mode A, the camera is set to a smaller quantum well and the pixel sensitivity increases. This enables the well to fill faster under less light, providing a higher response on the grey scale. (NB: Because of the smaller well, noise is a larger percentage of the total well, making the signal/noise ratio lower in mode A).
