Compact 1/2" Monochrome Progressive Scan Camera

The JAI CV-A1 megapixel camera has a resolution of 1380 x 1035 and footprint of merely 44 x 66 mm (width x length) and height of 29 mm.  The CV A1 boasts a long list of new functions and features, including RS 232C control of all settings of the camera and a number of new trigger modes and readout modes.

The target market for the CVA1 camera family is volume OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and high level System Integrators for Automated Imaging applications (e.g. industrial/medical equipment).  A special UV enhanced, CV-A1 UV, as well as a slower scan version, CV-A1-20, is also available.
