1/2" Monochrome Interlaced Scan Camera, CCIR Video Standard

The JAI CV-A50C camera has the compact footprint of merely 44 x 66 mm (width x length) with a height of 29 mm.

The CV A50C offers S/N ratio >59dB, excellent sensitivity and smear performance. RS 232C control of all settings. Sevaral trigger modes including edge pre-select and pulse width control.

The target market for the CVA50C camera family is volume OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and high level System Integrators for Automated Imaging applications (e.g. industrial/medical equipment).
