2/3" Bayer Mosaic Color Progressive Scan CCD GigE Vision Camera

The JAI BB-500GE is a new addition to the Basic tier of the C3 family. It is a Bayer color progressive scan camera with 5 million pixels resolution and GigE Vision interface. A unique feature of BB-500GE 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.

The BB 500GE camera utilizes the Sony ICX625 CCD and operates at 15 frames/second in continuous mode even with a 5 megapixel resolution, thanks to a well-crafted analog front end design. Partial scan and binning modes are also provided.

The BB500GE camera offers superb thermal management and pre-processing functions such as: white balance, LUT for compensating lighting condition and a blemish compensation function.

In common with all C3 Camera Suite models, the new BB-500GE camera is supported by JAI SDK and Control Tool.
