Monochrome Progressive Scan CCD 16-Megapixel Industrial Camera

The JAI AM-1600CL is one of the flagship cameras of the C3 Advanced series. It incorporates the Kodak KAI-16000 dual-tap sensor to deliver full 4872 x 3248 pixel monochrome resolution at 3 frames per second. The 16 megapixel industrial camera features a Camera Link interface offering user-selectable 8-bit, 10-bit, or 12-bit output.

A series of pre-processing functions are built into the AM 1600CL camera to achieve high image quality while offloading 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, automatic channel balancing, and a flat-field compensation function using per-pixel gain and offset adjustments or image subtraction.

Along with these features, the 16-megapixel AM1600CL camera receives the same extensive shock and vibration testing as lower resolution models to maximize its ability to withstand the rigors of industrial environments (70 G shock, 10 G vibration - 20Hz to 200 Hz XYZ). The camera also features a specialized internal heat sink and a ridged housing design which combine to produce exceptional thermal management and low noise image fidelity.

Core applications for the AM-1600CL include flat panel LCD inspection, solar panel inspection, PCB inspection, 3D metrology, biometrics, and microscopy, among others. The camera is also suitable for numerous high-end outdoor uses including surveillance, aerial imaging, and homeland security applications.
