SAN JOSE, CA -JAI has announced a strategic partnership with PPT VISION Inc. of Minneapolis, MN, to provide high-performance camera technology for integration into PPT VISION’s M-Series embedded machine vision line. Under the arrangement, JAI will initially provide a UV-sensitive camera and a remote-head camera to enable PPT VISION to expand the applicability of the M-Series line to a variety of specialized applications. Additional JAI cameras may be incorporated at a future date.

The 1.4-megapixel, 16 fps ultraviolet camera selected by PPT VISION utilizes the shorter wavelengths of ultraviolet light to “see” smaller surface details or to image items that radiate light below the visible spectrum. These capabilities make the cameras ideal for semiconductor inspection, biomedical analysis and other sophisticated applications.

Also being added to PPT VISION’s M-Series line is one of JAI’s high-speed remote-head cameras. The camera is designed for applications involving limited space and/or high-speed repetitive motion, such as pick-and-place machines, pipe inspection, or other industrial endoscopy tasks.
