Integrated lens or 3-axis control

The TMC-775 features an integrated 3-axis control function that can link the camera to auto-iris, auto-focus, and auto-zoom controls or can be used to operate pan & tilt heads or other motorized equipment.

Advanced exposure control for dynamic lighting conditions

TMC Series cameras were among the first JAI cameras to offer an Auto Level Control (ALC) option, which combines auto-shutter, auto-gain, and auto-iris into a single integrated function for maximum control over exposure and image quality in outdoor applications or other dynamic lighting conditions.

Small, rugged, and proven in real-world applications

TMC Series cameras have been proven in a wide range of industrial, defense, and homeland security applications. Options include conformal coating for damp or high humidity environments and extended temperature capabilities ranging from -40°C to +65°C.

Here are a few applications where TMC Series industrial cameras are especially suitable

TMC Series cameras are the perfect starting point for a wide range of machine vision applications.

Situational awareness

Remote lens control, integration with pan & tilt heads, and enhanced sensitivity make TMC Series cameras well-suited to applications that exceed the reach of standard security cameras.

Factory automation equipment

Systems that need to maintain traditional video standard output for compatibility or training reasons, benefit from the traditional NTSC output capability.

Electronics inspection

TMC Series cameras feature mounting holes on all four sides, plus mirror image capabilities to make them easily adapt to a wide range of color sorting or inspection systems.

Vehicle-mounted cameras

TMC Series cameras help aircraft, ground vehicles, and watercraft monitor the world around them while watching for other vehicles and structures.
