Analog Camera has megapixel resolution and compact size.

Press Release Summary:

Based on 1/1.8 in. format CCD image sensor, CV-A2 comes in 29 x 44 x 66 mm A-series housing and is capable of speeds to 15 fps. It features 1628 x 1236 resolution, and settings - shutter speed, gain, trigger and readout modes - are selected via RS-232C interface using short ASCII commands via terminal emulator or by proprietary Control Tool software. Camera suits surveillance and inspection applications that require step-and-repeat operation.

Original Press Release:

Analog Camera Combines 2-Megapixel Resolution and Compact Size

The CV-A2, based on a 1/1.8" (close to 1/2") format CCD image sensor and housed in JAI's standard 29(w) x 44(h) x 66(l) mm A-series housing, offers a cost-effective and easy-to-use solution to the problem of the large existing base of systems using analog interfaces. These systems need cameras that operate at substantially higher speeds, while still offering the analog interface.

The CV-A2, capable of 15 full frames per second, features 1628 x 1236 resolution. All settings, such as shutter speed, gain, trigger modes, readout modes, etc., are selected via an RS-232C interface using short ASCII commands via a terminal emulator, or by using JAI's Control Tool software.

The target markets for the CV-A2 include industrial inspection systems and high-end surveillance (including intelligent traffic systems). The CV-A2 is especially suited to inspection applications in which step-and-repeat operation is required. With cameras that feature higher resolution, fewer steps are required to inspect the same object.

The CV-A2 is available now. Volume pricing is available upon request.
