The TM-1405GE from JAI PULNiX (San Jose, CA) is a high-resolution, 1.4-megapixel CCD camera. The interline transfer CCD permits full vertical and horizontal resolution with shutter speeds up to 1/16,000 sec. Asynchronous test, combined with a no-delay, pulse-width controlled shutter, provides flexible triggering and exposure control for machine vision applications. The camera is combined with a standard 1/2" image sensor and captures 30 frames per second at full resolution of 1392 × 1040. The camera features 100-meter cables, standard ports, and a look-up table that allows full dynamic range control of the CCD by externally selectable knee slopes. The camera has both digital Gigabit Ethernet and analog output for interfacing with other equipment.

The camera features an adjustable back-focus and is available in monochrome and color formats, or with optional UV response (OP21-UV). Applications include machine vision, medical imaging, intelligent transportation systems, gauging, character recognition, surveillance, and failure analysis.
