The AB-1600CL is one of the flagship cameras of the C3 Advanced series. It incorporates the Kodak KAI-16000 dual-tap sensor to deliver full 4872 x 3248 pixel resolution at 3 frames per second. The 16 megapixel industrial camera provides raw Bayer color output for host-based interpolation, and features a Camera Link interface offering user-selectable 8-bit, 10-bit, or 12-bit output.

Several pre-processing functions are built into the camera to achieve high image quality while offloading these tasks from the user’s host PC. Available functions include a built-in blemish compensation function to correct for defective pixels, and automatic channel balancing.

Along with these high-end features, the 16-megapixel camera receives the same extensive shock and vibration testing as lower resolution models to maximize its ability to withstand the rigors of industrial environments (70 G shock, 10 G vibration – 20Hz to 200 Hz XYZ). The camera also features a specialized internal heat sink and a ridged housing design which combine to produce exceptional thermal management and low noise image fidelity.

Core applications for the AB-1600CL include flat panel LCD inspection, solar panel inspection, PCB inspection, 3D metrology, biometrics, and microscopy, among others. The camera is also suitable for numerous high-end outdoor uses including surveillance, aerial imaging, and homeland security applications.

The AB-1600CL can be ordered with either P-mount or F-mount lens mounts. Custom lens mount designs are also possible for large quantity orders.

Dimensions (HxWxL): 55 x 55 x 120 mm.
