The AM1600GE is part of the Jai "Advanced" series in the company's C3 Camera collection. It incorporates the Kodak Kai-1600 dual-tap progressive scan CCD and delivers a full 4872 x 3248 pixel resolution in monochrome at 3 frames per second. The model features user-selectable 8-bit, 10-bit or 12-bit output.
A series of pre-processing functions are built into
the camera to achieve high image quality while off-loading
these tasks from the user's host PC. Available
functions include a look-up table (LUT) to adjust image contrast
(gamma correction), a built-in blemish compensation function to correct
for defective pixels and automatic channel balancing. This model
includes the same standard features as the Camera Link models, including
multiple trigger modes, pre-set or programmable electronic shutter and
The camera also features a specialized internal heat sink and a ridged housing design which combine to produce exceptional thermal management and low noise operation. To ensure reliable performance in industrial environments, JAI subjects its 16-megapixel cameras to the same extensive shock and vibration testing as lower resolution models. This testing includes shock testing to 70 G and vibration testing to specifications of 10 G at 20 Hz in all three directions (XYZ).
The camera is compatible with any GigE Vision/GenICam-compliant application development tools and is also supported by JAI's own comprehensive camera control tool and SDK package.
Core applications for the AB-1600GE cameras include flat panel LCD inspection, print inspection, solar panel inspection, PCB inspection, 3D metrology, biometrics and microscopy. The camera is also suitable for numerous high-end outdoor uses including high-end security/surveillance, aerial imaging and traffic applications.
