Monochrome Progressive Scan CCD 16-Megapixel GigE Vision Camera

The JAI AM-1600GE is one of the flagship cameras of the C3 Advanced series. It incorporates the Kodak KAI-16000 dual-tap sensor to deliver full 4872 x 3248 pixel monochrome resolution at 3 frames per second. The 16 megapixel industrial camera features a GigE Vision interface offering user-selectable 8-bit, 10-bit, or 12-bit output.

A series of pre-processing functions are built into the AM 1600GE camera to achieve high image quality while offloading these tasks from the users host PC. Available functions include a look-up table (LUT), a built-in blemish compensation function, automatic channel balancing, and a flat-field compensation function using per-pixel gain and offset adjustments or image subtraction.

A unique feature of the AM1600GE is its sequence trigger mode, which allows the user to pre-select a combination of gain, offset and Region of Interest (ROI) that can be changed on-the-fly.

Along with these features, the 16-megapixel AM-1600GE camera receives the same extensive shock and vibration testing as lower resolution models to maximize its ability to withstand the rigors of industrial environments (70 G shock, 10 G vibration - 20Hz to 200 Hz XYZ). The camera also features a specialized internal heat sink and a ridged housing design which combine to produce exceptional thermal management and low noise image fidelity.

Core applications for the AM 1600GE include flat panel LCD inspection, solar panel inspection, PCB inspection, 3D metrology, biometrics, and microscopy, among others. The camera is also suitable for numerous high-end outdoor uses including surveillance, aerial imaging, and homeland security applications.

The AM-1600GE can be ordered with either P-mount or F-mount lens mounts. Custom lens mount designs are also possible for large quantity orders.
