Compact optical format

The SP-12400C-PMCL features Sony’s advanced 3.45 µm pixel technology, enabling its 12.37-megapixel resolution to fit in a compact 1.1” optical format for more lens options and a smaller, lighter form factor.

Excellent sensitivity and image quality

Also available in a model with monochrome output, the SP-12400-PMCL cameras feature a dark noise rating of less than 3 electrons for outstanding image quality even under low light conditions.

Advanced exposure control

The SP-12400-PMCL handles difficult lighting situations with ease - indoors or out – thanks to 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 64.6 fps via standard Camera Link interface.

  • Compact 1.1” CMOS imager with global shutter.

  • 8/10/12-bit Raw Bayer color output.

  • 3.45 µm square pixels provide low noise with excellent sensitivity.

  • Reset continuous triggering (RCT) for use in traffic applications and other situations where exposures must continuously adjust between triggers.

  • Automatic Level Control (ALC) for dynamic lighting conditions.

  • Edge enhancement function for added contrast and sharpness.

  • Industrial grade performance with 80G shock, 10G vibration, and -5°C to +45°C operating range.

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.

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.
