Traditional CCD image quality

They don’t have the full speed or low power consumption of CMOS, but if your application requires the low noise and excellent contrast of a CCD imager, C Series cameras can provide it. Note: CCD supplies are limited and are subject to discontinuation. CMOS cameras are recommended for projects with long intended lifecycles.

Compact, versatile, and industry-standard

C Series cameras feature a low profile design with top and bottom mounting holes, enabling them to fit easily into many types of machine vision systems. Standard GigE Vision interfaces offer easy cabling and networking options, while Mini Camera Link interfaces are also available on some models.

Solid reliability in industrial environments

Like all JAI cameras, C Series models are built to last in industrial environments. Excellent thermal management, plus high shock (70G) and vibration (10G) ratings result in trouble-free operation, with MTBF values that range from 130,000 to over 200,000 hours, depending on the model.


  • 0.4-megapixel color CCD camera with 1/2” optical format.

  • 776 x 582 resolution.

  • Large 8.3-micron pixels offer excellent sensitivity and contrast.

  • GigE Vision interface supports up to 100-meter cabling using widely-available cabling and networking equipment.

  • 8-bit or 10-bit raw Bayer digital output.

  • Partial scanning and ROI readout provide increased frame rates.

  • Industrial grade performance with 70G shock, 10G vibration, and over 160,000 hrs. MTBF rating.

Here are a few applications where C Series industrial cameras are especially suitable

The C Series cameras are the perfect starting point for a wide range of machine vision applications.


Vision systems for track and trace, pill sorting, inspecting vials and ampoules, and many other applications, can all utilize C Series cameras.


From vision-guided robot arms to autonomous vehicles, C Series cameras provide high quality images in a compact yet industrial-grade form factor.


Low-noise CCD images provide clean edges and sharp details for critical measurements of size, shape, or placement of systems or parts during inspection.

Barcode and label inspection

For simple to complex barcode and OCR-type applications, C Series cameras help to discern critical details, even under less than optimal lighting conditions.

Electronics inspection

C Series cameras fit nicely into systems for inspecting printed circuit boards, sorting small parts, and other electronics-related applications.
