CCD 2-Megapixel Cameras integrate GigE Vision interface.

Four New 2-Megapixel Cameras with GigE Vision Interfaces

JAI has added four new GigE Vision cameras to its series of industrial grade CCD cameras built around quad-tap sensors from Kodak.


The new AM-201GE (monochrome) and AB-201GE (color) are built around the Kodak KAI-02150 quad-tap sensor, providing 1920 x 1080 resolution at 38.3 frames per second for 8-bit monochrome or raw Bayer color output. The color model (AB-201GE) can also perform in-camera color interpolation to provide YUV 4:2:2 packed color output at 26.6 fps, or 24-bit RGB output (8-bits per color) at 17.7 fps.

For customers wanting a traditional 4:3 aspect ratio, the new AM-200GE (monochrome) and AB-200GE (color) provide 1600 x 1200 resolution at 40.6 frames per second for 8-bit monochrome or raw Bayer color output. These cameras are built around the Kodak KAI-02050 quad-tap sensor. The color model (AB-200GE) can perform in-camera color interpolation to provide YUV 4:2:2 packed color output at 28.8 fps, or 24-bit RGB output (8-bits per color) at 19.2 fps.

10-bit and 12-bit output is also selectable on all four cameras

The new models feature a single GigE Vision interface, providing simple setup and low cost cabling and networking options. JAI's free SDK and Control Tool software provides easy access to the camera's extensive feature set, as well as a wide range of library functions and samples for quick application development. GigE Vision / GenICam-compliant software tools and libraries from third-party companies are also supported.

The cameras feature an advanced channel balancing function which continuously adjusts the video levels coming from the multi-tap sensor to ensure uniformity across the image. User configurable AOI scanning (partial scanning), multiple binning modes (monochrome only), and a variety of acquisition modes are supported, including continuous, single-frame, and multi-frame capture. The cameras are equipped with an Automatic Level Control (ALC) capability that integrates auto-shutter, auto-gain, and auto-iris features for maximum exposure control under changing lighting conditions. Image pre-processing features include auto-white balancing, pixel blemish compensation, flat-field compensation, and a 512-point look-up table for gamma customization.

The cameras have C-mount lens mounts. Dimensions are 55 mm wide and 55 mm high by 69 mm in length.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
