JAI Spark SP-20000M-USB


JAI provides a wide selection of single-sensor monochrome area scan cameras with resolutions ranging from 2.35 to 45 megapixels. Cameras are built around state-of-the-art sensor technology including the latest CMOS global shutter imagers.All cameras are designed to perform in tough environments to withstand operating conditions with high vibration effects (up to 10G) and high shock occurrence (up to 80G). This classifies them among the best in relation to industrial reliability and durability.

Product Description

The SP-20000M-USB provides 20-megapixel monochrome resolution at 16 frames per second over a plug-and-play USB3 Vision interface. Built around the CMOSIS CMV20000 CMOS imager, it offers a rare combination of high resolution, high frame rate, and high image quality, well suited to a wide range of high performance applications.

High throughput: Delivering 5120 x 3840 pixels at a remarkable 30 frames per second, the SP-20000M-USB’s combination of speed and resolution makes it ideal for aerial mapping, printed circuit board inspection, and many other applications where detailed analyses are required across a wide area.

Excellent Image Quality – Monochrome or Color: Available in monochrome or color models, the SP-20000M-USB features true correlated double sampling (CDS) for outstanding image quality with high pixel uniformity. An industry-leading 1:50000 parasitic light rejection ratio minimizes global shutter leakage for clean images with sharp contrast.

Adapts to Changing Light Conditions: The SP-20000M-USB handles difficult lighting situations with ease – indoors or out – thanks to JAI’s Auto Level Control (ALC) function, which links auto shutter and auto gain for smart exposure control under any condition.
