2MP 2/3" Bayer Color Progressive Scan CCD HD Camera

The JAI AB-201CL is a 2-megapixel industrial grade CCD camera offering a combination of HDTV resolution, high fidelity, and high frame rates. The AB 201CL features the KAI-02150 quad-tap sensor from Kodak, capable of providing full 1920 x 1080 Bayer color resolution at 64 fps. A standard Camera Link digital interface supports 8-bit, 10-bit, or 12-bit output.

The camera also can perform in-camera interpolation, to deliver 24-bit RGB output at 32 frames per second.

The AB201CL 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 AB-201CL camera 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 pixel blemish compensation, to flat-field compensation, auto white balancing, and a 256-point look-up table for gamma customization.

Like JAI’s other high resolution cameras, the AB 201CL 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.
