Fusion Series Cameras

Multi-Spectral Cameras:  Dual-sensor prism technology

 

 

JAI’s Fusion Series uses dual-sensor prism technology to deliver imaging solutions that are both innovative and cost-effective.

Multi-spectral cameras perform both visible and near-infrared inspection simultaneously, by splitting incoming light to two separate imagers. This makes it possible to use a single camera to simultaneously inspect both visible elements and sub-surface defects or other information which is optimally detected at NIR wavelengths.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) cameras also split light to two separate sensors, but in this case, the imagers are used to provide two separate exposures which are then fused together in the camera or in post processing. In this way, details in both bright and dark areas can be properly captured, extending the camera’s dynamic range to nearly twice that of a standard CCD.

Multi-spectral imaging technology allows users to replace multiple inspection stations with a single set up.

 

 

 

 

Ease-of-Use

JAI multi-spectral cameras offer ease-of use and lower equipment and maintenance costs.

 

 

Exceptionally Good HDR Images

The dual-sensor HDR design enables the capture of full linear high dynamic range image data without the image compression and noise found in typical single sensor HDR cameras.
The two image channels in the HDR camera can be analyzed separately or processed with image fusion algorithms to produce a dynamic range nearly double the normal CCD response.

 

 

Fusion series cameras are ideal for application like:

  • Inspection of organic items such as fruit and vegetables.
  • Inspecting of currency and checks.
  • Textile and plastic inspection.
  • Circuit board inspection.
  • High-end security surveillance.
  • LED inspection, welding, glass inspection and solar panel manufacturing.
  • Monitoring of industrial furnaces or heated metal.
  • Traffic applications

 

Fusion in Action

Packaging Inspection – Bag of Almonds

The visible channel lets you see the printing on the bag, while the NIR channel lets you see through the printing

Packaging Inspection – Blister Pack

The NIR channel lets you see the surface properties

Packaging Inspection – Bottle Cap

The visible channel allows inspection of the logo print, while the NIR channel lets you see the surface scratches/defects

Food Inspection – Cocoa Beans with Alien Element (Stone)

The NIR channel allows you to locate the alien element (stone) easily

Food Inspection – Coffee Beans

It is difficult to pick out the bad coffee bean in the color channel, the NIR channel allows this to be done easily

Food Inspection – Fruit

Is the circled area in the first picture natural color variation or a sign of decay?  The NIR image reveals the answer – the darker patch is an early sign of decay!

PCB Inspection

The visible channel (mono, in this case) shows components on the surface, while the NIR channels lets you see traces between PCB layers.

Packaging Inspection – Box with Salt Snacks

The visible channel lets you see the printing on the bag, while the NIR channel lets you see through the printing

Packaging Inspection – Bag of Japanese Sugar
