This item is DISCONTINUED.


The JAI CV-M9CL is an advanced 3CCD camera featuring high resolution (3 x 800,000 pixels), progressive scan, Camera Link interface and a fast readout rate of 30 fps with full resolution.

The CV M9CL camera's built-in chromatic shading reduction makes the selection of suitable lenses easier.

The CVM9CL outputs pure pixel information with programmable individual exposure for R, G and B. The prism assembly features co-site sampling, where all 3 CCDs are aligned to each other without spatial offset. The result is a high performance camera suitable for a wide range of industrial applications, as well as for medical/scientific use.
