Sweep+ Series
Prism-based industrial RGB color line scan camera

The SW-4000T-MCL is a 4K prism-based industrial RGB color line scan camera with 4,096 pixels per line and a fast, 67.7 kHz line rate. Its 3-CMOS prism design features three separate imagers that simultaneously capture red, green, and blue spectral wavebands. Included is an advanced set of features providing the best possible performance and precision for web-based or continuous color imaging applications.

Prism quality at trilinear speeds

The SW-4000T-MCL is part of a new generation of high performance 3-CMOS prism line scan cameras. It delivers 4K output at up to 67.7 kHz, making it 4 times faster than previous prism cameras and roughly comparable to the fastest 4K trilinear models.

The best images from any angle

Prism technology makes it possible to view the red, green and blue channels through a single optical plane. This method eliminates off-angle viewing problems, spatial compensation issues, 3D cylindrical offsets, and other problems that can affect image quality with trilinear cameras.

Advanced set of unique features

The SW-4000T-MCL is one of the only 4K color line scan cameras to offer user-selectable pixel sizes, in-camera color space conversion, and both horizontal and vertical binning. It also supports direct connection to rotary encoders to simplify setup and operation.


  • 3-CMOS prism-based camera with simultaneous imaging of R/G/B via a single optical path.

  • 4096 pixels per line at up to 67.7 kHz output rate.

  • Two user-selectable pixel sizes for higher responsivity (7.0 x 7.0 μm) or higher dynamic range (7.0 x 10.5 μm).

  • Built-in color space conversion from RGB to HSI, CIE XYZ, sRGB, Adobe RGB, and custom RGB formats.

  • Low-noise binning with 1x2, 2x1, or 2x2 options.

  • Supports direct connection to rotary encoders when connecting via frame grabber is undesirable.

  • Camera Link interface supporting 3 x 8-bits or 3 x 10-bits output.

  • One-push automatic white balancing.

  • Flat-field and color shading compensation.

  • Chromatic aberration correction.

  • Nikon F-mount or M52 mount.

Typical applications where Sweep+ Series industrial cameras are suitable

The Sweep+ Series line scan cameras are the ideal choice if you have imaging applications where you need very accurate color imaging via separate R-G-B color channels.

Sports imaging

Finish line cameras used in horse racing, speed boats, track events, and other high precision photo-finish applications.

Fruit and vegetable inspection

Bulk inspection of fruit and vegetables looking at size, colors, ripeness and damage for precise sorting and grading.

Food and grain inspection

Color and quality inspection of frozen food, rice grains, coffee beans, peas, cereals, tea and tobacco.

Semiconductors and LCD displays

Wafer geometry and surface inspection for early defect detection. Also surface inspection of flat panels/displays looking for scratches and defective screen pixels.


Sorting of colored materials like glass, plastic, cans, and polymer materials to remove contaminants and organize for reuse.

2D print inspection

Color inspection of magazines and pharmaceutical packaging as well as currency inspection looking at color correctness.

3D print inspection

“Unwrapping” of cylindrical items such as cans, bottles, pens etc. for 360-degree label inspection.

Web applications

Web inspection of roll-based products including paper, plastic, textiles. Also inspection of wood, tile glaze and glass inspection.
