High throughput

At 137 frames per second in a Camera Link Deca configuration, the SP-5000-PMCL provides a combination of speed and resolution well suited to many high speed inspection applications, event capture systems, and much more.

A versatile performer – in monochrome or color

Available in monochrome or color models, the SP-5000-PMCL supports single and multi-ROI functions enabling users to create the exact resolution and optical format they require for their high performance application.

Auto exposure and high dynamic range

Monochrome models feature a built-in HDR function that lets users to extend the camera’s dynamic range up to 84 dB. In addition, all models feature a P-iris connection and JAI’s Auto Level Control for intelligent exposure control in dynamic lighting conditions.

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, metrology and other 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.

Sports and entertainment

Spark Series cameras capture high resolution images to track player movement, create virtual environments, generate broadcast replays, and other tasks.


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


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.
