SP-20000C-PMCL:  Spark Series, Color, Mini Camera Link, 5120 x 3840, 41mm CMOS, 30fps

The SP-20000M-PMCL and SP-20000C-PMCL are 20-megapixel CMOS cameras providing an exceptional combination of resolution, speed, and image quality.

Built around the CMOSIS CMV20000 imager, these Spark Series cameras offer full frame resolution of 5120 x 3840 pixels at a remarkable 30 frames per second. This combination of speed and resolution makes them ideal for examining flat panel displays, printed circuit boards, and many other applications where detailed inspections are required across a wide area.

In addition, the Spark SP-20000 cameras are well-suited to persistent surveillance, border security, aerial mapping, and other outdoor applications, thanks to such features as automatic level control (ALC) linking shutter and gain for best exposures under changing light conditions; and an optional high dynamic range mode.

SP-20000C-PMCL Featuresmini cameralink

  • Large 41mm diagonal CMOS imager with global shutter
  • 30 fps at full 20-megapixel resolution (5120 x 3840)
  • 6.4 µm square pixels provide excellent sensitivity
  • Imager includes correlated double sampling (CDS) function for improved uniformity
  • In-camera CMOS pattern correction
  • Flat-field and pixel blemish correction
  • 8/10/12-bit Mini Camera Link output
  • Accepts power over Mini Camera Link or via 12-pin connector
  • F-mount lens mount
  • Automatic Level Control (ALC) for dynamic lighting conditions




The monochrome model (SP-20000M-PMCL) offers horizontal and vertical binning plus excellent NIR response while the color model (SP-20000C-PMCL) provides raw Bayer output at 30 fps. Both monochrome and color models leverage CMOSIS’ 8-transistor (8T) pixel architecture to implement true correlated double sampling (CDS) for outstanding image quality with the highest degree of pixel uniformity. An industry-leading 1:50000 parasitic light rejection ratio minimizes global shutter leakage for clean images with sharp contrast.

Dual Mini Camera Link connectors in a two-cable “full” configuration provide the bandwidth necessary for high-speed, high resolution ouput.

The SP-20000M-PMCL and SP-20000C-PMCL complies with “Power over Camera Link” which enables power to be supplied to the camera through the Camera Link cable(s). Because the power requirements of the camera exceed the amount of power which can be provided over a single PoCL connection, power must be supplied via both Camera Link cables in order to utilize the PoCL capabilities. If you plan to use this function, please be sure that the frame grabber board you are using also complies with this specification. Alternatively, the camera can be powered via a separate power supply connected to the 12-pin Hirose connector.

Uses F-mount lenses.

Dimensions (HxWxL): 62 x 62 x 84.5 mm

Note: these cameras are also available with CoaXPress (2x) or USB3 Vision interfaces. Contact JAI for more information.
