The JAI Fusion offers functionality which otherwise would require two or more cameras, within a single system.
Dual sensor area scan camera for multi-spectral imaging
The JAI Fusion series uses dual sensor prism technology to offer unique technical solutions. The camera splits incoming light into two separate channels, a visible colour and a near-infrared (NIR) channel. This makes it possible to analyse objects both on and below their surfaces at the same time.
The sensor for the visible light has a Bayer mosaic colour filter and a monochrome sensor for the NIR light. The light beams of both spectrums are separated using a special, dichroic prism and sensed by the corresponding sensors.
The cameras can work in free- running mode or can be triggered to operate. For the output of the image data is CameraLink or GigE Vision interface available. The new Fusion cameras, that feature a high-speed backwards compatible 10 GigE (10GBASE-T) interface, offer much higher frame rates of up to 226 fps for 1.6 megapixel images and 123 fps for 3.2 megapixel images.
Reasons to select the JAI Fusion
JAI's multi-sensor, multi-spectral prism cameras provide simultaneous images of different light spectrums through a single optical path. The cameras split incoming light into two separate channels - a visible color channel from 400-700nm and a near infrared (NIR) channel from 750-900+nm
This makes it possible to simultaneously inspect surface properties or printing, as well as sub-surface defects or other information which is optimally detected at NIR wavelengths.
