High Sensitivity 2/3" Monochrome Progressive Scan CCD 1.4 MP Camera With NIR Capabilities

The CM-141PMCL is a 1.4 megapixel monochrome CCD camera with Power over Camera Link interface. The camera features a high sensitivity CCD chip, high signal to noise ratio (> 58 dB), 30 fps in triggered mode and a compact house, making them particularly suitable for imaging applications in machine vision, medical imaging, food sorting, traffic and surveillance applications.

The CM 141PMCL is designed around the ICX-285AL 2/3" progressive scan CCD (1392 x 1040 pixels). This sensor uses its 6.45 μm pixel size and improved microlens technology to provide higher overall sensitivity (as low as 0.03 lux) with low smear characteristics. It also features extended spectral response in the near-IR region offering roughly 4X the sensitivity of conventional sensors at a 945 nm wavelength.  The CM141PMCL camera run with 30 frames per second in triggered mode and continuous operation with full resolution. A variety of trigger modes are provided including reset continuous triggering (RCT) which enables the camera to operate in continuous mode while awaiting a trigger signal.
A combination of high sensitivity CCD chip, high signal/noise ratio (S/N > 58 dB), small size and attractive price levels makes the CM141PMCL camera the perfect choice in a range of imaging applications:
- Machine vision applications
- Medical applications (Life science applications and spectroscopy identifying or investigating sample composition of human tissue).
- Food sorting looking for internal decay or damage of the fruit (NIR-capabilities of the CM- 141PMCL camera.
- High resolution surveillance/security applications including biometrics applications like facial and iris recognition.
- Traffic enforcement and traffic management of fast moving vehicles in daytime or using invisible (NIR) nighttime illumination.

The CM-141PMCL features PoCL interface (Power over Mini Camera Link). With the PoCL standard there is no need for a separate power supply providing a clean one- connector solution. The PoCL variants are a JAI factory option and must be specified when ordering. There is no additional charge when ordering PoCL. The camera is also available with a standard Mini Camera Link interface.
