1/3" Monochrome Progressive Scan Remote Micro Head Camera

The JAI CV-A436 is a remote micro head camera (17 mm dia.) with a 1/3" monochrome progressive scan CCD sensor and with features similar to the CV-A11. The small and lightweight head makes the CV A436 ideal for applications with space or mass constraints, such as semiconductor equipment or robotics. The CVA436 camera features a standard frame rate of 60 fps with programmable exposure, shutter speeds from 1/60 to 1/200,000 second, partial scanning, and other features. The camera head is connected to the controller by a 2-meter detachable cable.

AI offers newer products with similar functionality as the CV-A436. Therefore, the CV-A436 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.
