Apex Series: 3-sensor R-G-B prism area scan cameras
The Apex Series cameras are 3-sensor R-G-B prism cameras that separate the incoming light into red, green and blue wavelengths, which are directed to three separate image sensors.
The cameras deliver exceptionally accurate R-G-B raw image data ideal for demanding color machine vision applications across a range of industries including pharmaceutical, electronics, printing/packaging and imaging in microscopy and medical diagnostics equipment.
The 3-sensor imaging technique provides more accurate per-pixel color values than those obtainable with the Bayer Mosaic technique relying on interpolation routines alone to define pixel color values. The cameras also offer more precise spatial resolution, enabling accurate edge detection and the ability to resolve smaller details.
The latest CMOS cameras in the Apex Series represent a large step forward in resolution, speed and color pre-processing functions all at a very reasonable price point. This will enable many more vision designers to step up to the increased value that comes from incorporating a prism-based color camera from JAI.
The Apex series comprises 13 different cameras (including medical & life sciences models) with resolutions of 1.6 or 3.2 megapixels.
The latest AP-3200T models features Sony Pregius IMX265 or IMX252 sensors.
The AP-1600T models features Sony Pregius IMX273.
All models feature on-board color space conversion including: RGB to HSI, RGB to CIE XYZ and RGB to sRGB/Adobe RGB.
Analog gain and exposure time can be set independently for the R-G-B channels allowing for better SNR conditions.
* Note: Models with 'YES' in the ROI column can be adjusted to lower resolutions at higher frame rates. For more information, please download the frame rate calculator available on the specific product page or consult JAI for assistance.
