1/3" High Resolution Interline Transfer CCD Color Camera

The JAI TMC-773 provides users with a 1/3" format color interlaced camera with excellent sensitivity and a wide range of advanced features. The Sony ICX258AKL CCD imager offers superior light gathering ability due to its advanced μlens technology.

An integrated lens controller enables users to remotely operate the TMC 773 motorized lenses, pan & tilt heads, or any 3 external control channels. The single 15-pin connector is used for power, camera control, and video output, making installation clean and simple. All camera features are controllable via RS-232 commands over this single interface cable.

Designed with small size and ruggedness in mind, the TMC773 camera is suitable for a wide range of industrial, aerospace, and homeland security applications. Advanced options include Auto Level Control (ALC) to automatically adjust gain and shutter settings during changing light conditions; conformal coating; pixel blemish compensation; and extended temperature capability for operating in temperatures from -40 degrees C to 65 degrees C.
