Our partner JAI has added three new CMOS-based cameras in its Go Series to provide vision system designers with UV imaging capability. The cameras feature the same Lince5M imager as found in the GO-5000 family of products, but with modifications to provide sensitivity in the ultraviolet region of the spectrum.
Modifications include replacing the standard protective glass covering on the sensor with a quartz glass cover that provides protection without blocking UV wavelengths, and a double AR (anti-reflective) coating on the quartz helps to maximize transmission through the cover.
The small Go Series cameras are targeted at UV-A and UV-B applications (300 nm - 400 nm) and offer a good alternative to the larger and more expensive sCMOS UV camera options currently in the market. With a resolution of 2560 x 2048 (5.2 megapixels), they offer the highest resolution among current UV cameras.
Choice of interfaces Three interface options give users a choice of cabling and frame rates to fit their applications. All the cameras can be powered over their interfaces. The GigE Vision and USB3 Vision models can also accept power over a 6-pin Hirose I/O connector.
Standard features include 2X or 4X binning, single- and multi-ROI modes, built-in high dynamic range (HDR) functions, and much more.
Typical applications include:
UV laser calibration
Surface inspection of metals and plastics
UV microscopy for life sciences, forensics, materials research, and more.
Print inspection of pharmaceutical packaging, passports, bank notes, etc.
Solar panel inspection
