4/3" Bayer Color Progressive Scan CCD 8-Megapixel Industrial Camera
The JAI AB-800CL is an 8-megapixel industrial grade CCD camera offering a combination of high resolution, high fidelity, and high frame rates. The AB 800CL features the KAI-08050 quad-tap sensor from Kodak, capable of providing full 3296 x 2472 Bayer color output at 17 fps. A standard Camera Link digital interface supports 8-bit, 10-bit, or 12-bit output.

The AB800CLcamera also can perform in-camera interpolation, to deliver 24-bit RGB output at 8.5 frames per second.

The AB-800CL uses the Kodak CCD’s quad-tap architecture for rapid image acquisition, then combines the four taps into two for Bayer readout or one-tap for RGB readout over a simple one-cable Camera Link base configuration. Built-in channel balancing capabilities are provided to ensure uniformity across the image.

The JAI AB 800CLcamera features user configurable AOI scanning (partial scanning) and a variety of acquisition modes, including continuous, single-frame, and multi-frame capture. Advanced image pre-processing features range from auto-gain, auto-shutter, and auto white balancing, to pixel blemish compensation, flat-field compensation, and a 256-point look-up table for gamma customization.

Like JAI’s other high resolution cameras, the AB800CL incorporates a list of industrial grade features to maximize performance in machine vision environments. These include precise sensor alignment, advanced thermal management, a built-in temperature sensor, and rugged construction with extensive shock and vibration testing performed.

The JAI AB-800CL camera can be ordered with either C-mount or F-mount lens mounts. Dimensions depend on the configuration.
