JAI | SW-4000Q-10GE. 4-CMOS prism-based RGB/NIR line scan camera

Sweep+ Series
Prism-based industrial RGB color + NIR line scan camera

The SW-4000Q-10GE is a 4-CMOS prism-based industrial RGB/NIR color line scan camera with four separate sensors for simultaneously capturing red, green, blue and near infrared spectral wavebands. Besides delivering supreme RGB color data, the NIR image makes it possible to identify an even wider set of defects on inspected objects. The camera has 4,096 pixels per line and a fast, 72 kHz line rate thanks to a high speed 10 GigE interface. Included is an advanced set of features providing the best possible performance and precision for web-based or continuous color/NIR imaging applications.

Prism quality with backwards-compatible 10 GigE interface

The SW-4000Q-10GE combines the color accuracy of 4-CMOS prism technology with a super fast 10 GigE interface providing true RGB + NIR output at up to 72 kHz. Intelligent auto-negotiation adjusts to support NBASE-T speeds (5 GigE / 2.5 GigE), as well as traditional 1 Gbps GigE Vision output.

The best R-G-B-NIR images from any angle

Prism technology makes it possible to view the red, green, blue and NIR channels through a single optical plane. This method eliminates off-angle viewing problems, spatial compensation issues, 3D cylindrical offsets, and other problems that can affect image quality with trilinear cameras.

Advanced set of unique features

The SW-4000Q-10GE is one of the only 4k color/NIR line scan cameras to offer user-selectable pixel sizes, in-camera color space conversion, and both horizontal and vertical binning. It also supports direct connection to rotary encoders to simplify setup and operation.


  • 4-CMOS prism-based camera with simultaneous imaging of R/G/B + NIR via a single optical path.

  • 4096 pixels per line at up to 72 kHz for 8-bit RGB + NIR output.

  • Two user-selectable pixel sizes for higher responsivity (7.0 x 7.0 μm) or higher dynamic range (7.0 x 10.5 μm).

  • Advanced 10 GBASE-T (10 Gbps) interface with backwards compatibility to NBASE-T and 1000BASE-T data rates.

Typical applications where Sweep+ Series industrial cameras are suitable

The Sweep+ Series line scan cameras are the ideal choice if you have imaging applications where you need very accurate color imaging via separate R-G-B color channels.

Fruit and vegetable inspection

Bulk inspection of fruit and vegetables looking at size, colors, ripeness and damage for precise sorting and grading.

Food and grain inspection

Color and quality inspection of frozen food, rice grains, coffee beans, peas, cereals, tea and tobacco.

Semiconductors and LCD displays

Wafer geometry and surface inspection for early defect detection. Also surface inspection of flat panels/displays looking for scratches and defective screen pixels.


Sorting of colored materials like glass, plastic, cans, and polymer materials to remove contaminants and organize for reuse.

2D print inspection

Color inspection of magazines and pharmaceutical packaging as well as currency inspection looking at color correctness.

3D print inspection

“Unwrapping” of cylindrical items such as cans, bottles, pens etc. for 360-degree label inspection.

Web applications

Web inspection of roll-based products including paper, plastic, textiles. Also inspection of wood, tile glaze and glass inspection.


Inspection of stuffed PCB boards including traces, solder, component placement/alignment, shorting, and other items where color and NIR inspection is important.
