Wave Series

The Wave Series cameras are dual-band 1K line scan camerascapable of sensing Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) light. The cameras are based on Indium/Gallium/Arsenide (InGaAs) sensor technology and JAI’s prism line scan technology, making them capable of delivering dual-band imaging in the SWIR light spectrum (900 – 1700 nm).

Provides extra “hidden” vision data

JAI SWIR camera technology can enhance current machine vision systems with imaging beyond what is possible when imaging the visible and/or the near infrared light spectrum. The Wave camera can provide lots of extra “hidden” vision data.

Dual-band imaging capability

With two separate imaging channels, Wave Series cameras leverage subtle differences in absorptive and reflective properties at specific wavelengths to sort or analyze substances in ways that aren’t possible using a single spectral band.

High performance prism technology

With a single optical path feeding two prism-mounted imagers, Wave Series cameras have no moving parts to wear out like filter wheel cameras, and can precisely align the dual spectral images even when objects are moving at high speeds.


  • Simultaneous dual-band imaging in the Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) light spectrum.

  • 2 x 1024 pixel resolution in two SWIR bands: 900-1400 nm and 1400-1700 nm.

  • Single optical path maintains two-channel alignment at up to 39 kHz (39,230 lines/second).

  • Image pre-processing includes pixel gain correction, flat-field correction, LUT/gamma function, and more.

  • Camera Link interface available with Dual-Base configuration or 2-tap Medium configuration.

  • Large variety of off-the-shelf optics available in comparison with MWIR cameras that require custom lenses and windows made of expensive materials.

  • No cooling required.

  • A robust design for outstanding reliability and durability in industrial environments.

26CL-02-26 Camera Link Cable

The 26CL-02-26 Camera Link cable is a standard interface cable with full-size 26-pin Camera Link male connectors on each end. It is designed to work with any JAI camera with a model number ending in "CL". It does not fit the smaller "Mini Camera Link" connectors found on models with "MCL" or "PMCL" suffixes. Length is 2 meters.

PC-12P Hirose 12-pin Connector

The HR10A-10P-12S is a universal connector used for power and control signals for many JAI cameras. The connector is a female plug, with sockets, that mates to the connector on the back of the camera. It has soldering cups for easy assembly of custom cables.

12P-02S Power Cable

This cable features flying leads on one end and a Hirose 12-pin connector on the other wired to match the pinout of JAI cameras with 12-pin connectors. The flying leads enable power to be supplied via two of the Hirose pins, while the remaining wires/pins can be utilized to access various I/O functions of JAI cameras (see individual camera datasheets/manuals for functions accessible through the Hirose connectors).

The cables can be used with JAI’s own “flying leads” power supplies, or with third-party or custom power supply systems.
