JAI introduces a new industrial color line scan camera in the Sweep+ Series. The Sweep+ SW-4000T-10GE is a prism-based color line scan camera equipped with three CMOS sensors and a 10 GigE interface including backwards compatibility to 5, 2.5 and 1 Gbps Ethernet standards. The 3-CMOS prism design features three separate imagers that simultaneously capture red, green, and blue spectral wavebands for very high color imaging accuracy.
The SW-4000T-10GE camera offers a maximum resolution of 4096 pixels (4k) per channel/line, and in combination with the 10GBASE-T interface, the camera provides RGB output at a maximum line rate as high as 97 kHz (97,000 scan lines/second). YUV color data can be output at up to 145 kHz. Using sensor region-of-interest (ROI) the camera can output data at even faster line rates. For example, by setting the ROI at 2112 pixels, the scan rate can be increased to as much as 183,400 lines/s.
Via integrated auto-negotiation technology the camera offers automatic backwards compatibility to NBASE-T (5 Gbps and 2.5 Gbps) and the traditional 1000BASE-T (1 Gbps output) for customers running vision applications on these lower-speed Ethernet standards. Therefore, the new SW-4000T-10GE color line scan camera covers multiple Ethernet configurations making it suitable for the slowest to the fastest running color line scan set-ups including applications in food sorting, plastic sorting, bottle/bottle cap inspection and high speed color print/label inspection.
