JAI A1 - High-resolution monochrome cameras

The 1/2" high-resolution monochrome JAI A1 camera is part of JAI's A series. It features a 1,392 x 1,040 pixel resolution and a frame rate of 16 frames/s in a compact housing measuring just (44 x 66 x 29)mm³.

When binning and partial scan are used, the JAI A1 progressive scan camera can achieve up to 125 frames/s at a reduced resolution. The binning function has been extended in the JAI A1 and now allows users to choose between horizontal and vertical binning or a combination of the two. The JAI A1's shutter times can be adjusted in 16 steps between 1/16 s and 1/200,000 s.

Like all the camera models in the A series, the JAI A1 is also equipped with a serial RS-232 interface which permits not only the usual camera settings to be adjusted but also all modifications such as pin allocation and synchronisation signals.

The pin-out of the 12-pin Hirose connector has been adapted to the new Hirose EIA-J standard. All the necessary camera signals including the trigger are sent via a cable connection. The JAI A1 provides all the familiar trigger modes - "Edge Pre-Select", "Pulse Width Control", "Start/Stop", "Frame Delay Read Out" and "Smearless".
