CM/CB-040MCL cameras: When comprehensive and cost-effective - but simple; are not contradictory

Supplier: Adept Turnkey Pty Ltd

Renowned for their ability to design for diverse industries, Jai's cameras continue their philosophy of blending diversity with functional simplicity.


Based on strong customer demand, Jai's new Mini Camera Link,  0.4-megapixel, progressive scan CM-040MCL (monochrome) and CB-040MCL (Bayer colour) cameras join the list of models made for clients who require small size, high quality and advanced functionality at a cost-effective price.

Countering  the trend of many manufacturers who are releasing GigE camera models, Jai has designed these Mini-CameraLink models to fill a  market niche for  cameras ideal for applications that need higher bandwidth, real-time signaling, and lower latency than is possible using GigE interfaces.

Measuring a compact 29 x 44 x 66 mm and with 776 x 582 pixels, the 040 models provide slightly greater resolution than basic VGA models while maintaining a high frame rate of 60 fps.

The cameras utilize the Sony ICX415 1/2" CCD and, while at full resolution, output is at 61 frames/second, higher frame rates can be achieved by using the partial scan or vertical binning modes.

The CM-040MCL and CB-040MCL feature auto-iris lens video output to support dynamic lighting conditions usually found in outdoor applications such as Intelligent Traffic systems and Surveillance.

Both models are available with an optional factory-installed Right Angle Adapter which enables the camera to “look” at a 90º angle and are designed for a range of inspection tasks where physical access is limited.

The cameras provide practical, versatile solutions in a wide range of deployments, including:
  • Automotive industry (eg. inspection, high-precision gauging and process monitoring
  • Pharmaceuticals (eg. Inspection of blister packages, fill level control)
  • Beverage industry (eg. control of fill levels of defective bottles)
  • Food industry (eg. sorting)
  • Electronics inspection
