GO-5100MP-USB from JAI is a small and versatile machine vision camera, built around Sony’s IMX250MZR polarized CMOS image sensor, providing 5.1 megapixels of total resolution and an innovative 4-way polarized filter design. It is ideal for imaging and analysis of objects and materials in industrial applications.
The camera has a full resolution of 2464 x 2056 pixels with a 2/3” optical format and pixel sizes of 3.45 µm x 3.45 µm. The polarization capabilities are derived from the sensor’s unique filter array, which consists of four separate polarizing filters – angled at 0°, 45°, 90°, and 135° - that have been arranged in a regular pattern across the sensor. Thus, each block of four pixels can be used as a calculation block to determine the angle and intensity of light reflecting from objects, as well as several other calculations.
The GO-5100MP-USB is equipped with a USB3 Vision interface enabling it to provide full resolution, 8-bit output at up to 74 frames per second. 10-bit and 12-bit output is also supported. The main camera body is a compact 29 x 29 x 41.5 mm, with a lens mount supporting standard C-mount lenses. It is built to high standards for shock (80G) and vibration (10G) to enable it to perform in industrial environments with an MTBF rating of more than 150,000 hours.
