JAI expands its Go-X Series with new rolling shutter cameras


JAI is now expanding its Go-X Series of small industrial cameras with three additional models, all available in color and monochrome versions. These new models are built around Sony´s popular STARVIS sensor platform featuring CMOS rolling shutter technology and includes the following models:

  • GOX-6409-PGE model: 6.3-megapixel. 18 frames/s in full resolution. (IMX178).
  • GOX-12409-PGE model: 12.2-megapixel. 9 frames/s in full resolution. (IMX226).
  • GOX-20409-PGE model: 20-megapixel. 5 frames/s in full resolution. (IMX183).

Get the details:
The sensor design utilizes back-side illumination technology featuring a simpler and more compact pixel architecture leading to excellent light sensitivity and high quantum efficiency. The new cameras include a global reset function that lets users combine the advantages of global and rolling shutter in applications where flash illumination can be used. With their attractive price point, these new rolling shutter cameras are ideal in vision systems where cost-efficiency is a key system design parameter.

Small in size. Small in weight. Strong in operation:
With small industrial cameras being utilized more and more in vision systems monitoring critical factory manufacturing, warehousing and robotics operations, the cameras in the Go-X Series feature high shock and vibration ratings of 80G and 10G, respectively, and are designed to optimally dissipate heat to avoid breakdowns in typical industrial environments and under non-stop operating conditions. The high reliability of the cameras is backed by a full 6-year warranty.

Superior dust protection on all models for pristine image quality:
In addition to providing high manufacturing quality, the new cameras – in line with other Go-X Series models - are designed to provide higher image quality, thanks to a rigorous dust prevention and screening process. The special dust prevention measures include cleanroom assembly, internal seals around the sensor compartment, and a rigorous screening process to ensure every camera shipped delivers the best possible image quality via a clean, dust-free optical path.


With all the basic functionality needed:
The new rolling shutter models share many of the same features as the rest of the Go-X Series cameras including, standard C-mount, region-of-interest (ROI), blemish compensation and shading correction – plus, an automatic level control function (ALC) that lets users define the interactions between auto-gain and auto-shutter operation to minimize noise and optimize apertures in dynamic lighting conditions. Power can be provided over the GigE Vision interface or via a separate 6-pin I/O connector.

For a wide range of machine vision applications:
Weighing only 65 grams and with 29 mm x 29 mm x 51.5 mm dimensions, the new cameras are suitable for a wide range of applications in factory manufacturing lines with tight spaces or in applications involving robotic arms, drones, or other scenarios where portability is a key requirement.
