Leveraging a Kodak quad-tap CCD sensor, the AB-201CL
camera is capable of providing full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, at 64
frames-per-second without compromising image quality.
The cameras feature user-configurable AOI scanning (partial scanning),
and a variety of acquisition modes, including continuous, single-frame,
and multi-frame capture. Advanced image pre-processing features range
from auto-gain, auto-shutter, and pixel blemish compensation, to flat-field
compensation, and a 256-point look-up table for gamma customization.
The Camera Link advantage
While competitor models also offer cameras built around this specific
2-megapixel quad-tap CCD, JAI are one of very few Camera Link
models currently available in the market, the advantage of Camera
Link being that 2 megapixels at 64 fps requires considerable data bandwidth
and Camera Link's performance capabilities enable it to support the required
data rate over a standard base configuration.
The CCD's quad-tap architecture captures the image then combines the four
taps into two for Bayer readout or one-tap for RGB readout over the simple,
one-cable configuration. Image quality is not compromised due to an advanced
automatic channel-balancing algorithm that continuously adjusts gain and
offset to provide seamless result (even under changing lighting conditions)
that surpass the typical one-time balancing of other multi-tap cameras.
Output can be 8-bit, 10-bit or 12-bit for raw Bayer modes, and 8-bit-per-colour
(24-bit) in RGB mode. This model can be set to perform internal 3 x 3
colour interpolation to generate 24-bit RGB output at 32 frames-per-second
for full resolution images.
Like JAI's other high-resolution cameras, both models incorporate
a list of industrial-grade features to maximize performance in machine
vision environments. These features include a variety of thermal management
features (ridged housings, heat sinks, internal temperature sensor) as
well as extensive shock and vibration testing performed.
Applications for these cameras include a broad range of industrial,
medical or entertainment applications where the wide field-of-view and
high frame rate are useful for capturing high-resolution images of fast-moving
The various auto-shutter, auto-gain and auto-iris capabilities also make
these cameras suitable for a variety of outdoor applications.
