The Apex AT-200CL is a 3-CCD prism-based industrial RGB area scan camera delivering 3 x 2.0 megapixels at 20 frames/second. It provides better color fidelity and spatial resolution than traditional Bayer color cameras and is designed for color-critical imaging and inspection tasks in machine vision, life science and microscopy applications.

Accurate and crisp colors images

Using a special prism-based imaging technique, the incoming light is separated into red, green and blue wavelengths, captured by three precisely-aligned CCD sensors. The result is better color accuracy and spatial precision than traditional color cameras using the Bayer mosaic technique.

Analog gain and exposure setting for each individual R-G-B channel

In all Apex cameras the analog gain and the exposure time can be set independently for the red, green and blue channel allowing for better signal/noise conditions. This maximizes the dynamic range for each color channel resulting in improved image quality.

Equipped with Camera Link Interface

The AT-200CL is built around three Sony ICX274AL CCD sensors with global shutter. Combined with a GigE vision interface (Camera Link interface), this machine vision camera can output 3 x 2.0 megapixels at 20 frames/second in full resolution.


  • 3-CCD RGB color camera.

  • 3 x ICX274AL sensors.

  • Camera Link interface.

  • 24-bit or 30-bit data output.

  • Individually controllable exposure for each RGB channel.

Microscopy/cell imaging/pathology

Imaging of human tissue slices, cells and body fluid samples under a microscope or in tissue scanners.

Medical/pharmaceutical quality control

Color quality control of ampoules, capsules, multi-layer tablets and other medical products.

Endoscopy/surgical imaging

Imaging inside the human body and organs. Surgical imaging via microscopes or ceiling mounted cameras.

PCB and wafer inspection

Visual inspection of printed circuit boards, chips, electronic parts and wafers.

Flat panel inspection

Calibration of chrominance and luminance values to specified color spaces, as well as detection of pixel defects.

Print inspection

High-end print inspection of currency, pharmaceutical packages and other printed material.

Automotive inspection
