Maximum throughput

Delivering 4096 x 3072 pixels at up to 189 frames per second, the SP-12000-CXP4’s combination of speed and resolution makes it ideal for high performance inspection applications where detailed analyses are required across a wide area.

Excellent image quality – monochrome or color

Available in monochrome or color models, the SP-12000-CXP4 features true correlated double sampling (CDS) for outstanding image quality with high pixel uniformity.

Adapts to changing light conditions

The SP-12000-CXP4 handles difficult lighting situations with ease - indoors or out – thanks to a built-in high dynamic range mode (monochrome) and JAI’s Auto Level Control (ALC) function, which links auto shutter and auto gain for smart exposure control under any condition.


  • 12-megapixel resolution at 189 fps via 4-channel CoaXpress interface.

  • Large format APS-C CMOS imager with global shutter.

  • Raw Bayer color output.

  • 5.5 µm square pixels provide excellent sensitivity.

  • Imager includes correlated double sampling (CDS) function for improved uniformity.

  • Automatic Level Control (ALC) and HDR imaging function for dynamic lighting conditions.

  • Industrial grade performance with 80G shock, 10G vibration, and -45°C to +70°C operating range.

  • 8/10/12-bit output.

Here are a few applications where Spark Series cameras are especially suitable

Spark Series cameras are the perfect starting point for a wide range of machine vision, entertainment, and mapping applications.

Electronics inspection

Verification of circuit layouts and coatings, ball grid array inspection, component positioning, solder paste quality, dimensional accuracy, pick & place applications, and more.


High speed Spark Series cameras perform detailed inspection of pills, packages, and other pharmaceutical products while maintaining maximum throughput.

Mapping and aerial imaging

Cameras mounted on aircraft, satellites, or ground vehicles capture images to help create maps, analyze terrain, or build street views.

Inventory robotics

Large fields-of-view with high levels of detail are needed to scan shelves for products and their associated identification codes.


Many types of industrial parts must be carefully measured to ensure conformance to system requirements. High resolution images enable higher precision on critical measurements.

Automotive spray finish

High speed, high resolution systems identify surface imperfections finer than a grain of salt in final vehicle assembly, to cue operators where to polish and buff out imperfections.
