1/2" Monochrome Progressive Scan Camera

The JAI CV A10CL uses the latest generation of monochrome progressive scan 1/2" CCD sensors with 768 x 576 pixels resolution, which fits inside the SVGA resolution envelope. The 1/2" format has the advantage of a large pixel size (8.3 x 8.3 μm), which results in higher sensitivity. The compact form factor of makes the CVA10CL camera ideal for a majority of industrial applications.

JAI offers newer products with similar functionality as the CV-A10CL. The CV-A10CL will be phased out in near future and JAI recommends that this product is not considered for new design-in projects. Please contact JAI to hear about alternative products.
