C Series
1.4 MP UV-sensitive area scan camera

The CM-140GE-UV is a monochrome area scan camera equipped with a special UV-sensitive CCD. It provides 1.4-megapixel resolution at 16 frames per second, with 8-bit or 10-bit output. Features like ROI readout and a sequencer function make it a versatile performer for a wide range of applications requiring sensitivity below 400 nm.

Excellent UV sensitivity

Equipped with the Sony ICX407BLA CCD imager, the CM-140GE-UV is able to extend its sensitivity to below 200 nm, allowing visualization of smaller features than those which can be seen using visible light.

Quartz glass protection

Traditional CCD cover glass blocks UV imaging, but glassless imagers can be easily dirtied or damaged. The CM-140GE-UV’s imager is protected by a quartz glass cover which protects the sensor’s surface while allowing UV rays to pass.

Compact and versatile

Like other C Series cameras, the CM-140GE-UV features a low profile design with top and bottom mounting holes, enabling them to fit easily into many types of machine vision systems. A standard GigE Vision interface offers easy cabling and networking options.


  • 1.4-megapixel monochrome CCD camera with 1/2” optical format and enhanced UV sensitivity.

  • 1392 x 1040 resolution. 

  • 4.65-micron pixels offer excellent image quality.

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

  • 8-bit or 10-bit digital output.

  • Vertical binning and ROI readout provide increased sensitivity and speed.

  • Industrial grade performance with 70G shock, 10G vibration ratings.

PD-12 Power Supply

A universal power supply that works with all JAI cameras equipped with a 12-pin Hirose power connector.  Four versions are available:

PD-12UUP   U.S. plug with 12-pin Hirose connector to camera

PD-12UEP   European plug with 12-pin Hirose connector to camera

PD-12UU    U.S. plug, flying leads (no 12-pin connector)

PD-12UE     European plug, flying leads (no 12-pin connector)

12P-02S Power Cable

This cable features flying leads on one end and a Hirose 12-pin connector on the other wired to match the pinout of JAI cameras with 12-pin connectors. The flying leads enable power to be supplied via two of the Hirose pins, while the remaining wires/pins can be utilized to access various I/O functions of JAI cameras (see individual camera datasheets/manuals for functions accessible through the Hirose connectors).

The cables can be used with JAI’s own “flying leads” power supplies, or with third-party or custom power supply systems.

MP-40 Tripod Mounting Plate

Tripod adapter for all JAI industrial M- and A-series cameras (except CV-M53x and CV-M436)

Only use the supplied M3 screws for mounting to camera body. Using longer screws can damage internal circuit boards. NOTE: For CV-A10GE and CV-M70GE use the MP-41 adapter plate.

Here are a few applications where C Series UV-sensitive cameras are especially suitable

C Series UV-sensitive cameras are the perfect starting point for a number of specialized machine vision applications.


Semiconductors UV cameras let inspection systems utilize extremely short light wavelengths so the smallest defects or surface features can be imaged and analyzed.


Vision systems for track and trace, pill sorting, inspecting vials and ampoules, and many other applications, often need to be able to “see” invisible product codes, lot numbers, or other markings.

Security printing inspection

Bank notes, passports, lottery tickets, and other similar items may use special security markings only visible in the UV spectrum.

Electronics and corona inspection

Solar panels and other types of electronics may need UV imaging to look for signs of current leakage or other defects. UV cameras are also used to inspect power lines and transformers where non-visible “coronas” can indicate electrical problems.


UV lighting and imaging can detect damaged skin and subsurface issues at early stages before they become serious.
