JAI introduced the Go Series GO-8105M-5GE-UV, a new 8.1-megapixel, UV-sensitive camera with a high performance 5GBASE-T (5 GigE) interface. The new camera surpasses JAI’s three other UV (ultraviolet) camera models by providing both increased resolution (8.1 megapixels vs. 5 megapixels) and a higher spectral sensitivity covering UVA, UVB, and extending well into the UVC range.
The GO-8105M-5GE integrates the Sony Pregius S IMX487-AAMJ CMOS sensor into a compact form factor of 29 x 29 x 68 mm and produces full resolution 8.1-megapixel images at up to 66 frames per second over the 5 GigE interface. The camera’s interface features an auto-negotiation function that adjusts the camera's output to match the capabilities of the network or host PC, including 2.5GBASE-T (2.5 Gbps) or 1000BASE-T (1 Gbps), depending on the available bandwidth.
The camera has a compact 2/3” C-mount optical format thanks to the 2.74 µm pixel size of the Pregius S sensor. Pregius S sensors feature backside illumination to support this smaller pixel size without sacrificing imaging performance. 8-bit, 10-bit and 12-bit output formats are supported.
The GO-8105M-5GE-UV is offered in two configurations. The standard model features a double-AR-coated quartz glass cover over the sensor to protect the sensor from dirt and damage while maximizing light transmission. A glassless version (GO-8105M-5GE-UV-GL) is shipped with a protective glass cover on the sensor that can be removed by the user for applications where no interference from light passing through a cover glass can be tolerated.
The new camera’s resolution, frame rate, and ultraviolet sensitivity make it suitable for a range of complex applications in the fields of semiconductor mask inspection, wafer processing, sorting of waste materials, fluorescence analysis, high voltage technology, microscopy, dermatology, and more. Among the built-in camera features to support such applications are a horizontal/vertical image flip function, blemish compensation, shading correction, a sequencer function, multiple binning/rescaling modes, and an automatic level control (ALC) function that links auto-shutter and auto-gain functions to control exposures under changing light conditions.
The GO-8105M-5GE-UV becomes the 25th model currently available in JAI’s Go Series of compact industrial cameras. Other models include monochrome and color machine vision cameras with resolutions of 2.35 or 5 megapixels and with GigE Vision, USB3 Vision, or Camera Link interfaces, as well as two models equipped with on-sensor polarizer grids to support polarization imaging applications.
