Leveraging a Kodak quad-tap CCD sensor, the AM-201CL is capable of providing
full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, monochrome, at 64 frames-per-second
without compromising image quality.
The camera features user-configurable AOI scanning (partial scanning),
horizontal and vertical binning modes 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 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.
Like JAI's other high-resolution cameras, the AM-201CL incorporates
a list of industrial-grade features to maximize performance in machine
vision environments including 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.
