JAI (Glostrup, Denmark/San Jose, CA) has expanded its Spark Series of industrial area-scan cameras with two new models: Spark SP-12000C-CXP4 and Spark SP- 12000M-CXP4 (color camera and monochrome camera, respectively).

Both options are based on the CMOSIS 12-Megapixel CMOS sensor (CMV12000), featuring a resolution of 4096 × 3072 pixels, 5.5 μm square pixels, and global shutter technology. Through a CoaXPress 4-connector interface, the Spark SP-12000-CXP4 delivers a frame rate of 189 frames/s.

Other features include Automatic Level Control (ALC) for dynamic lighting conditions; an HDR function providing up to 90 dB dynamic range (monochrome only); 1×2, 2×1, and 2×2 binning (monochrome only); sequence trigger; and a unique multi-ROI function for flexible image readout. Pre-processing capabilities: flat field correction, color shading correction, blemish correction, black level control, auto/manual white balance, and a 256-point programmable look-up table (LUT). The SP- 12000-CXP4 has a working temperature range of -5°C to +30°C.
