  JAI introduces the SW-4000T MCL Color Line Camera

3. July 2018 – JAI has introduced a 3-CMOS prism color line camera in its Sweep + series. The SW-4000T-MCL has three custom 4K (4096-pixel) CMOS line sensors mounted on a prismatic optical assembly that precisely splits the incident light into red, green and blue wavebands.

The camera has 24-bit non-interpolated RGB output at up to 67.7 kHz (67,700 lines per second)

Increasing the line rate means that designers of color-line scan-based inspection systems do not provide speed for image quality sacrifice when their application requires a higher color and spatial precision than can be provided by trilinear cameras.

To support high-speed operation, the SW-4000T-MCL has three custom 7.5 micron square-pixel CMOS imagers that provide line speeds for the shortest exposure times required.

In addition, each of the three CMOS sensors has two adjacent lines. This arrangement allows the SW-4000T-MCL to provide horizontal binning, vertical binning, or both. In addition, the readout architecture of the sensor combines the reading of two pixels by a single diffusion node to double the signal without increasing the noise. This binning capability was introduced earlier this year on JAI's 4K trilinear camera (SW-4000TL-PMCL).

Another line scan found only in JAI's 4K color cameras is the integrated color conversion that allows the SW-4000T-MCL to provide native HSI or CIEXYZ color output, as well as standard RGB to sRGB conversions Adobe RGB color spaces or even a custom RGB conversion matrix.

To connect a rotary encoder, the SW-4000T-MCL has four separate input lines and built-in algorithms to support the direct connection of up to two encoder encoders. This means that users do not need to connect the encoder through the frame grabber, which simplifies cabling and reduces the possibility of lines dropping due to problems between the frame grabber and the camera. Of course, the Camera Link interface of the camera can still be used to make the connection of the encoder in a conventional manner, if preferred by the user.

Additional standard features include enhancement and black level adjustment, manual or automatic white balance, shading correction, PRNU and DSNU correction, and chromatic aberration compensation.

The SW-4000T-MCL uses a GenICam and Gen CP compatible Camera Link interface with Mini-CL connectors to output line data. Depending on the bit depth and the required line rate, the configurations Base, Medium, Full or Deca are supported. 3 x 8-bit and 3 x 10-bit outputs can be selected.

In addition to the Camera Link interface, a 12-pin Hirose connector and a 10-pin auxiliary connector with a total of three TTL inputs are available. one opto-isolated input and four TTL outputs.

The camera can be ordered with two different lens mount options – a Nikon F-mount or a M52 mount.
