JAI CCD Cameras for machine vision


The CM-141MCL is a 1.4 megapixel monochrome CCD camera with Mini Camera Link interface. The camera features a high sensitivity CCD chip, high signal to noise ratio (> 58 dB), 30 fps in triggered mode and a compact house, making them particularly suitable for imaging applications in machine vision, medical imaging, food sorting, traffic and surveillance applications.

Typical applications:
A combination of high sensitivity CCD chip, high signal/noise ratio (S/N > 58 dB), small size and attractive price levels makes this camera the perfect choice in a range of imaging applications:

Machine vision applications:
Medical applications (Life science applications and spectroscopy identifying or investigating sample composition of human tissue).
Food sorting looking for internal decay or damage of the fruit (NIR-capabilities of the CM-141MCL camera.
High resolution surveillance/security applications including biometrics applications like facial and iris recognition.
Traffic enforcement and traffic management of fast moving vehicles in daytime or using invisible (NIR) nighttime illumination.

Excellent sensitivity and spectral response:
The CM-141MCL is designed around Sony’s popular ICX285 2/3” progressive scan CCD (1392 x 1040 pixels). This sensor uses its 6.45 μm pixel size and improved microlens technology to provide higher overall sensitivity (as low as 0.03 lux) with low smear characteristics. It also features extended spectral response in the near-IR region offering roughly 4X the sensitivity of conventional sensors at a 945 nm wavelength.

30 frames/second in triggered mode:
The camera run with 30 frames per second in triggered mode and continuous operation with full resolution. A variety of trigger modes are provided including reset continuous triggering (RCT) which enables the camera to operate in continuous mode while awaiting a trigger signal.

Low noise operation:
Through JAI’s sophisticated circuit design the CM-141MCL deliver a signal-to-noise ratio of greater than 58 dB, producing images with outstanding image quality.

Small size:
CM-141MCL is designed in JAI’s small size C3 compact housing. This makes them one of the smallest cameras on the market with this sensor. Size: 29 (H) x 44 (W) x 75 (L) mm

Very long product life:
The new camera has been crafted to JAI’s usual high quality level, giving it high reliability and robustness with very long product life circles.

Mini Camera Link Interface & Power over camera link:
With the Mini Camera Link interface the camera housing keeps very small dimensions, making it suitable for machine vision applications with little physical space. In addition to the Camera link interface the cameras are also available with PoCL (Power over Camera Link). Click here to read about the PoCL model (CM-141PMCL).
