JAI GO cameras are characterised by their affordability, small size, light weight and rugged construction. To this can be added the GO-5100-USB’s 2/3” optical format which results from the sensor’s 3.45 µm square pixels. This makes the camera even more cost-effective since there are many affordable lenses tailored to the requirements of small pixels. This format is identical to that of older Sony ICX625 CCD imagers. The GO-5100-USB is therefore ideal for customers wishing to move from CCD cameras to newer CMOS technology.
In addition to the high frame rate of 74 fps at full 2464 x 2056 pixel resolution, the GO-5100-USB can be windowed down to a small ROI, generating higher frame rates with less data processing. It can also provide multiple ROIs in a single field of view allowing the user to define up to 64 non-overlapping ROIs.
Although compact, the GO-5100-USB is packed with advanced features. Symmetrical and asymmetrical binning functions (1x2, 2x1, 2x2) are available in the monochrome model, while lookup tables (LUT), sequencer trigger modes, auto level control (auto gain/shutter), and shading correction are provided in both monochrome and colour models.
Camera dimensions are 29 x 29 x 41.5 mm (excluding lens mount) with a weight of just 46 grams. High shock (80G) and vibration (10G) resistance, an MTBF rating of over 180,000 hours of operation, and a temperature rating of -5°C to +45°C provide excellent durability. These combine to make the camera ideal for use in robotics or applications which require repetitive camera movement, as well as for use in tight spaces.
Other JAI USB3 Vision cameras are the GO-5000-USB and GO-2400-USB which share the same physical dimensions and offer similar functionality, but different sensor characteristics. The GO-5000-USB has a sensor resolution of 2560 x 2048 pixels operating at frame rates up to 62 fps. The GO-2400-USB offers a maximum frame rate of 159 fps at full 1936 x 1216 pixel resolution.
For more than 50 years JAI has delivered industrial CCD and CMOS cameras with innovative engineering, high-end quality, and operational reliability and durability.
