JAI Expands its Spark Series with New CMOS 12-megapixel Industrial Area Scan Camera

POSTED 11/24/2015

Spark SP-12000C-CXP4 and Spark SP-12000M-CXP4COPENHAGEN – Today, JAI announced that the company had expanded its Spark Series of high performance industrial area scan cameras with two new models - Spark SP-12000C-CXP4 and Spark SP-12000M-CXP4 (color camera and monochrome camera, respectively).

Both camera models are based on the CMOSIS 12-megapixel CMOS sensor (CMV12000) featuring a resolution of 4096 x 3072 pixels, 5.5 µm square pixels and global shutter technology.

Based on well-crafted JAI electronics design, the Spark SP-12000-CXP4 delivers a frame rate of 189 frames/s in full 12-megapixel resolution through a CoaXPress 4-connector interface. This is the fastest frame rate of any comparable 12-megapixel CMOS camera presently available on the market.

Features include Automatic Level Control (ALC) for dynamic lighting conditions, an HDR function providing up to 90 dB dynamic range (monochrome only), 1x2, 2x1, and 2x2 binning (monochrome only), sequence trigger, and a unique multi-ROI function for flexible image readout or frame rate enhancements in lower resolutions. Pre-processing functions include flat field correction, color shading correction, blemish correction, black level control, auto/manual white balance and a 256-point programmable look-up table (LUT).

All features and electronic components are packed very efficiently in a small form factor (60 x 60 x 127.5 mm) with a weight of only 510 grams, placing it among the smallest and lightest 12 megapixel cameras on the market compared to competitive models with CoaXPress interface.

Furthermore, the SP-12000 cameras have a rugged design to be able to withstand operating conditions with high vibration effects (max 10G) and high shock occurrence (max 80G), classifying SP-12000-CXP4 with the highest standards for industrial reliability and durability.
