JAI announces the release of the LT-200CL, a
new industrial grade color line scan camera based on JAI’s advanced prism
technology. Featuring a light beam splitter prism and three 2048-pixel,
custom-designed CMOS sensors, the LT-200CL captures the red, green and blue
spectral bands in 3 separate channels simultaneously through the same optical
path and with co-site sampling accuracy.
The high color accuracy provided with the
LT-200CL makes it ideal for demanding vision applications such as fruit and vegetable
sorting, 2D/3D print inspection, wood inspection and surface inspection of flat
panels and paint coatings, for example.
Further, JAI’s prism-block technology enables
users to avoid the complex alignment and encoding issues related to off-axis
viewing, variations in conveyor speeds, surface undulations, or objects that
roll or move as they pass through the camera’s field of view.
The LT-200CL is capable of running at scan
rates up to 30383 lines/second via an 80 MHz data clock and follows the recent
launch of JAI’s 3-CMOS color line scan camera, the LT-400CL, which features 3 x 4096 pixels and a
16180 lines/second scan rate. With the addition of the LT-200CL to the product
program, JAI now offers multiple resolutions and speeds in this new family of
color line scan cameras.
For flexible setting of scan rates and
resolution the LT-200CL features various pixel readout modes like full readout,
binning, sub-sampling and windowing readout. Using sub-sampling or windowing
readout modes the camera is capable of running at scan rates up to 60766
lines/second at 1024 pixel resolution.
A number of built-in pre-processing functions
are available including flat-field compensation, flat-shading compensation and
color shading compensation. Gain correction as well as the electronic shutter can
be set individually for the red, blue and green channels providing even further
flexibility in image optimization.
Other features include one-push automatic
white balance, a noise reduction function and a test pattern generator that can
be applied as a set-up and installation aid to check the performance of the
The camera is equipped with a Camera Link interface
providing 24-bit (3 x 8-bit) or 30-bit (3×10-bit) outputs.
To maximize the camera’s ability to withstand
the rigors of industrial environments, all LT-200CL cameras undergo extensive
shock (50G) and vibration testing (3G) to secure reliable operation over very
long operating periods. A ridged housing design provides maximum surface area
for heat dissipation resulting in excellent temperature management and optimal image
