SP-12000M-CXP:  Spark Series, Color, CoaxPress, 4096 x 3072, APS-C CMOS, 189 fps

The Spark SP-12000C-CXP4 (color) and Spark SP-12000M-CXP4 (monochrome) are 12-megapixel CMOS industrial area scan cameras with a CoaXPress 4-connector interface.

Both camera models are based on the CMOSIS 12MP CMOS sensor (CMV12000) featuring a resolution of 4096 x 3072 pixels, 5.5 µm square pixels and global shutter technology.

Based on well-crafted JAI electronics design, the Spark SP-12000-CXP4 delivers a super-fast frame rate of 189 frames/s in full 12 megapixel resolution at 8-bit.  This is the fastest frame rate of any comparable 12 megapixel CMOS camera presently available on the market.

SP-12000C-CXP Features

  • Large format 12 MP CMOS imager (global shutter).
  • APS-C optical format with 28.16 mm diagonal
  • 4 Channel CoaxPress
  • Up to 189 frames/s at full resolution (8-bit output)
  • 4096 x 3072 pixels (4:3 aspect ratio)
  • 5.5 µm square pixels
  • Exposure control from 15 µs to 8 seconds in 1 µs steps
  • Single- and multi-ROI modes for flexible readout, windowing, or increasing frame rate
  • Flat-field and blemish compensation plus in-camera CMOS pattern correction
  • Built-in HDR function provides up to 90 dB dynamic range (monochrome only)
  • Automatic Level Control (ALC) for dynamic lighting conditions
  • Monochrome or Bayer color models available
  • 12-pin connector for power and GPIO
  • Additional I/O via 10-pin AUX connector

Industrial grade ruggedness:
Furthermore, the SP-12000 cameras have a rugged design to be able to withstand operating conditions with high vibration effects (max 10G) and high shock occurrence (max 80G), classifying SP-12000-CXP4 with the highest standards for industrial reliability and durability. The camera has an impressive MTBF of more than 120.000 hours resulting in low cost of owership.

Extended temperature range:
For more extreme temperature conditions, two “extended temperature” models are also available. The SP-12000M-CXP4-XT (monochrome) and SP-12000C-CXP4-XT (color) utilize a ridged housing and internal temperature sensors for thermal management, plus a built-in cooling fan to achieve an extended operating temperature range of -5°C to +45°C. This is among the best performance specifications compared to similar cameras.

Typical Applications:
The Spark SP-12000-CXP4 is targeted at vision applications with a need for 12-megapixel resolution at speeds significantly greater than 100 fps. Typical applications include:
– Production quality control
– Event capture
– Metrology
– Pharmaceutical inspection
– Wafer inspection
– Medical device inspection
– Semiconductor and PCB inspection
– Packaging and print inspection
– Solar and LCD panel inspection
– Sports and entertainment
– Traffic and other outdoor applications

Uses F-mount lenses.

Dimensions (HxWxL): 62 x 62 x 127.5 mm

Note: these cameras are also available with Power-over-Mini-Camera Link (PMCL) or USB3 Vision interfaces. Contact JAI for more information.
