JAI has released the Go Series GO-8105M-5GE-UV, a new 8.1-megapixel, UV-sensitive camera with a high performance 5GBASE-T (5 GigE) interface. The new camera surpasses JAI’s three other UV (ultraviolet) camera models by providing both increased resolution (8.1 megapixels vs. 5 megapixels) and a higher spectral sensitivity covering UVA, UVB, and extending well in to the UVC range.
Compact 8-megapixel camera with Pregius S CMOS sensor
The GO-8105M-5GE integrates the Sony Pregius S IMX487-AAMJ CMOS sensor into a compact form factor of 29 x 29 x 68 mm and produces full resolution 8.1-megapixel images at up to 66 frames per second over the 5 GigE interface. The camera has a compact 2/3” C-mount optical format thanks to the 2.74 µm pixel size of the Pregius S sensor. These sensors feature backside illumination to support this smaller pixel size without sacrificing imaging performance. 8-bit, 10-bit and 12-bit output formats are supported.
5GigE interface with auto-negotiation
The camera’s 5 GigE interface features an auto-negotiation function that adjusts the camera's output to match the capabilities of the network or host PC, including 2.5GBASE-T (2.5 Gbps) or 1000BASE-T (1 Gbps), depending on the available bandwidth.
Offered in two configurations
The GO-8105M-5GE-UV is offered in two configurations. The standard model features a double-AR-coated quartz glass cover over the sensor to protect the sensor from dirt and damage while maximizing light transmission. A glassless version (GO-8105M-5GE-UV-GL) is shipped with a protective glass cover on the sensor that can be removed by the user for applications where no interference from light passing through a cover glass can be tolerated.
Designed for a range of complex applications
The new camera’s resolution, frame rate, and ultraviolet sensitivity make it suitable for a range of complex applications in the fields of semiconductor mask inspection, wafer processing, sorting of waste materials, fluorescence analysis, high voltage technology, microscopy, dermatology, and more.
Rich set of camera features
Among the built-in camera features to support such applications are a horizontal/vertical image flip function, blemish compensation, shading correction, a sequencer function, multiple binning/rescaling modes, and an automatic level control (ALC) function that links auto-shutter and auto-gain functions to control exposures under changing light conditions.
The GO-8105M-5GE-UV becomes the 25th model currently available in JAI’s Go Series of compact industrial cameras. Other models include monochrome and color machine vision cameras with resolutions of 2.35 or 5 megapixels and with GigE Vision, USB3 Vision, or Camera Link interfaces, as well as two models equipped with on-sensor polarizer grids to support polarization imaging applications.
