JAI Sweep+

Prism-based colour line scan cameras for high colour precision

The JAI Sweep+ models are prism-based industrial colour line scan cameras. These cameras capture the red, green, blue and NIR (depending on the model) bands in four separate channels simultaneously through the same optical path.

Sweep+ cameras are available with a variety of sensor resolutions (from 512 to 4096 pixels) and sensor types (CCD and CMOS). All cameras in the range feature one-push automatic white balance, flat-field correction and colour shading compensation and binning functions for increased sensor sensitivity. 4 sensor models of the Sweep+ cameras offer NIR-sensitivity.

3 reasons for JAI Sweep+

You need precise colour reproduction

JAI’s Sweep+ cameras use advanced prism technology making it capable of capturing R, G, B and NIR (4 sensor models) simultaneously. For this purpose, the sensors are mounted on a specially designed optical prism, the incident light is divided into red, green, blue and optionally NIR colour channels. JAI’s patented method ensures precise alignment of the four sensors on the same optical axis. This means significantly less colour fringing.

Your benefits:

  • You receive better image data, giving you a higher precision for your analysis
  • You save time and money for subsequent image data correction via software.
You want to inspect cylindrical or wavy objects quickly and reliably

Thanks to the advanced prism technology used in the JAI Sweep+ cameras the optical axis is always exactly aligned thus eliminating parallax issues and avoiding complex alignment procedures associated with off-angle viewing or inspection of cylindrical or wavy objects.

Your benefit:

  • You save time and money in setting up your system for objects with difficult shapes.
You want to run high-speed applications

The advanced sensor technology in combination with an improved light transmittance ensures faster shutter speeds than with other cameras for the same light intensity.

An additional benefit in terms of speed is the CoaXPress interface which some models feature. This interface allows the transfer of larger data rates than the CameraLink interface and the use of longer cable lengths. This allows you to bridge larger distances between the camera and the computer and gain more flexibility for setting up your system.

Your benefits:

  • Inspection times decrease while system productivity increases.
  • The CoaXPress interface allows system layouts that could not have been realised before.
