The Spark SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB are high performance 5-megapixel CMOS cameras providing an exceptional combination of resolution, speed, and image quality. These models support the new USB3 Vision interface standard enabling direct, "grabber-less" connection to PCs or other image processing hardware.
The SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB utilize a unique 2560 x 2048 pixel CMOS imager available exclusively from JAI, enabling the cameras to output full resolution, 8-bit monochrome or raw Bayer images at 62 fps. 10-bit output is provided at up to 50 fps. 12-bit output is also supported.
Like all the SP-5000 cameras, these USB3 Vision models feature a mixture of on-chip and in-camera capabilities enabling them to deliver image quality well beyond what is typical for high-speed CMOS cameras.
For example, a combination of analog and digital gain controls help to reduce the amount of quantized noise in low-light images compared to conventional CMOS cameras with digital gain functions alone. On the color model, an on-chip 4-channel analog gain control is provided for better white balancing and color shading correction with reduced noise.
Also included is JAI’s Auto Level Control (ALC) that combines auto gain, auto shutter, and auto iris capabilities in an integrated function to let users optimize their auto exposure control for lowest noise, fastest shutter, or other priorities.
The cameras are equipped with an auxiliary lens control circuit that supports P-iris control, as well as programmable 3-axis control of motorized zoom lenses or other analog accessories.
Single and multi-ROI capabilities, available for both monochrome and color models, provide added flexibility for utilizing both the high frame rate and pixel resolution of the cameras. On monochrome models, 2X binning is supported in horizontal, vertical, or both directions.
Outdoor applications benefit from the cameras’ built-in high dynamic range mode (monochrome models), the previously described ALC capability, and an extended temperature rating, which enables the cameras to operate in conditions ranging from -45°C to +70°C.
Uses C-mount lenses.
Dimensions (HxWxL): 62 x 62 x 55.5 mm
Note: these cameras can also be ordered with Mini Camera Link and GigE Vision interfaces, as well as 2-channel or 4-channel CoaXPress interfaces. See separate web pages for information about these models or contact JAI.
