The Apex AP-1600T-USB is a 3-CMOS prism-based industrial R-G-B area scan camera providing better color fidelity and spatial precision than traditional Bayer color cameras. The camera is built around the PregiusTM IMX273 1/2.9-inch sensor featuring 1456 x 1088 pixels and pixel sizes of 3.45 µm x 3.45 µm. The USB3 Vision interface offers excellent plug and play compatibility while delivering 3 x 1.6 megapixels at nearly 79 frames/second.

The camera can be optionally ordered with the IR-cut filter removed (AP-1600T-USB-NF) for applications needing extended sensitivity in the red/NIR channel. It is loaded with a range of advanced features and functions supporting the most challenging color imaging applications in machine vision, life sciences, and industrial microscopy.

JAI’s prism-based R-G-B cameras 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.
