Precautions
DO NOT OPEN THE CAMERA. WARRANTY IS VOID IF CAMERA IS
OPENED.
This camera contains sensitive components which can be damaged if
handled incorrectly.
KEEP SHIPPING MATERIAL.
Poor packaging of this product can cause damage during shipping.
VERIFY ALL EXTERNAL CONNECTIONS.
Verify all external connections in terms of voltage levels, power
requirements, voltage polarity, and signal integrity prior to powering
this device.
CLEANING.
This product can be damaged by some volatile cleaning agents. Avoid
cleaning the image sensor unless absolutely necessary. Please see
instructions on sensor cleaning in this document.
DO NOT EXCEED ENVIRONMENTAL SPECIFICATIONS.
See environmental specifications limits in the Specifications section of
this document. Special care is required to maintain a reasonable
operating temperature. If the camera is to be operated in a warm
environment, it is suggested that the camera be mounted on a heat sink
such as a metal bracket and that there is sufficient air flow.

Cleaning the sensor
DO NOT CONTACT CLEAN SENSOR UNLESS
ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY
Identifying Debris
Debris on the image sensor or optical components will appear as a darkened area or smudge on the image
that does not move as the camera is moved. Do not confuse this with a pixel defect which will appear as a
distinct point.
Locating Debris
Before attempting to clean the image sensor, it is important to first determine that the problem is due to
debris on the sensor window. To do this you should be viewing a uniform image, such as a piece of paper,
with the camera. Debris will appear as a dark spot or dark region that does not move as the camera is
moved. To determine that the debris is not on the camera lens, rotate the lens independent of the
camera. If the spot moves as the lens moves, then the object is on the lens -not on the image sensor- and
therefore cleaning is not required. If the camera has an IR filter, then rotate the IR filter. If the object
moves then the particle is on the IR filter not the sensor. If this is the case remove the IR filter carefully
using a small flat head screw driver. Clean both sides of the IR filter using the same techniques as
explained below for the sensor window.
DO NOT TOUCH ANY OPTICS WITH FINGERS. OIL FROM
FINGERS CAN DAMAGE FRAGILE OPTICAL COATINGS.
Cleaning with Air
If it is determined that debris is on the sensor window, then remove the camera lens, and blow the sensor
window directly with clean compressed air. If canned air is used, do not shake or tilt the can prior to
blowing the sensor. View a live image with the camera after blowing. If the debris is still there, repeat this
process. Repeat the process a number of times with increased intensity until it is determined that the
particulate cannot be dislodged. If this is the case then proceed to the contact cleaning technique.
Contact Cleaning
Only use this method as a last resort. Use 99% laboratory quality isopropyl alcohol and clean cotton
swabs. Dampen the swab in the alcohol and gently wipe the sensor in a single stroke. Do not reuse the
same swab. Do not wipe the sensor if the sensor and swab are both dry. You must wipe the sensor quickly
after immersion in the alcohol, or glue from the swab will contaminate the sensor window. Repeat this
process until the debris is gone. If this process fails to remove the debris, then contact AVT.

IR cut filter: spectral transmission
All Prosilica GC color models are equipped with an infrared block filter
(IR filter). This filter is employed to stop infrared wavelength photons
from passing to the imaging device. If the filter is removed, images will
be dominated by red and cannot be properly color balanced.
Monochrome Prosilica GC cameras do not employ an IR filter.
The figure below shows the filter transmission response for the IRC filter
family from Sunex. The cameras utilize the IRC30 filter.

Camera dimensions
The Prosilica GC camera family offers both CCD and CMOS sensor models. CCD cameras
utilize additional circuitry required for A/D conversion. As a result, CMOS models offer a
shorter mechanical package then CCD models.

Adjustment of lens mount
The C-mount or CS-mount is adjusted at the factory and should not
require adjusting.
If for some reason, the lens mount requires adjustment, use the
following method.
Figure 32: Prosilica GC camera front view
Loosen Locking Ring
Use an adjustable wrench to loosen locking ring. Be careful not to scratch the camera.
When the locking ring is loose, unthread the ring a few turns from the camera face.
A wrench suitable for this procedure can be provided by AVT
P/N: 02-5003A
Prosilica GC cameras can be equipped with a C-mount or a CS-mount
depending on sensor size and camera order code
Image to Infinity
Use a c-mount compatible lens that allows an infinity focus. Set the lens to infinity and
image a distant object. The distance required will depend on the lens used but typically
30 to 50 feet should suffice. Make sure the lens is firmly threaded onto the c-mount
ring. Rotate the lens and c-mount ring until the image is focused. Carefully tighten
locking ring. Recheck focus.

External Power
The Prosilica GC camera family has recently been updated to offer an expanded input
power voltage range. The camera serial number is used to differentiate between
cameras that offer 5-16 VDC and those that offer 5-25 VDC.
SN: 02-XXXXX-0XXXX, 5V - 16V. 12V Nominal.
SN: 02-XXXXX-1XXXX, 5V - 25V. 12V Nominal.

Camera In 1 and Camera In 2
Input signals allow the camera to be synchronized to an external event. The camera can
be programmed to trigger on the rising edge, falling edge, both edges, or level of this
signal. The camera can also be programmed to capture an image at some programmable
delay time after the trigger event.
Camera In 1 is isolated and should be used in noisy environments to prevent false
triggering due to ground loop noise. Camera In 2 is non-isolated and can be used when
a faster trigger is required and when environmental noise is not a problem.
DO NOT EXCEED 5.5V ON SIGNAL INPUTS UNLESS OTHERWISE
INDICATED
See Chapter Camera I/O non-isolated user circuit example on page 53
for wiring information.
AVT Prosilica GC Technical Manual V2.0.1

Camera Out 1 and Camera Out 2
These signals only function as outputs and can be configured as follows:
Exposing
Corresponds to when camera is integrating light.
Trigger Ready
Indicates when the camera will accept a trigger signal.
Trigger Input
A relay of the trigger input signal used to “daisy chain” the
trigger signal for multiple cameras.
Readout
Valid when camera is reading out data.
Imaging
Valid when camera is exposing or reading out.
Strobe
Programmable pulse based on one of the above events.
GPO
User programmable binary output.
Any of the above signals can be set for active high or active low.
Camera Out 1 is isolated and should be used in noisy environments. Camera Out 2 is nonisolated and can be used when environmental noise is not a problem and when faster
response is required.
Camera Out 1 will require a pull up resistor of greater than 1Kohm to the user’s 5V logic
supply.
See Trigger Schematics in Addendum for wiring information.
RS-232 RXD and RS-232 TXD
These signals are RS-232 compatible. These signals allow communication from the host
system via the Ethernet port to a peripheral device connected to the camera. Note that
these signals are not isolated and therefore careful attention should be used when
designing cabling in noisy environments.
Isolated Ground
Isolated Ground must be connected to the user’s external circuit ground if Sync Input 1
or Sync Output 1 is to be used.
Signal Ground
Signal Ground must be connected to the user’s external circuit ground if Camera Input 2
or Camera Output 2 is to be used or if the RS-232 port is to be used. Note that Signal
Ground is common with Power Ground however it is good practice to provide a separate
ground connection for power and signaling when designing the cabling.
Video Iris
This signal can be used to drive the video input of a video iris lens. See Addendum.

Reserved
These signals are reserved for future use and should be left disconnected.
Gigabit Ethernet Port
The Gigabit Ethernet port conforms to the IEEE 802.3 1000BASE-T standard for Gigabit
Ethernet over copper. We recommend using Category 5e or Category 6 compatible
cabling and connectors for best performance.
• Cable lengths up to 100 m are supported.
• The 8-pin RJ-45 jack has the pin assignment according to the
Ethernet standard (IEEE 802.3 1000BASE-T).

JEITA CONNECTOR
Prosilica's GC cameras provide built-in auto iris controls for controlling video-type auto-iris lenses. These lenses are available from
many popular security lens companies including Pentax, Fujinon, Tamron, Schneider, etc.
Remote iris lens control allows the camera to be more adaptable to changing light conditions. It allows the user to
manually control the exposure and gain values and rely solely on the auto iris for adjustment to ambient lighting.

Term
Definition
User Trigger
Trigger signal applied by the user (hardware trigger,

Logic Trigger
Trigger signal seen by the camera internal logic (not
visible to the user)
Tpd
Propagation delay between the User Trigger and the Logic
Trigger
Exposure
High when the camera image sensor is integrating light.
Readout
High when the camera image sensor is reading out data.
Trigger Latency
Time delay between the User Trigger and the start of
Exposure

Error in the Trigger Latency Time
Trigger Ready
Indicates to the user that the camera will accept the next
trigger.
Registered Exposure Time
Exposure Time value currently stored in the camera
memory.

and/or reading out data.
Idle
High if the camera image sensor is not exposing and/or
reading out data.

AVT Prosilica GC Technical Manual V2.0.1
57
Trigger rules
The User Trigger pulse width should be at least three times the width
of the Trigger Latency as indicated in Chapter Specifications on page
12.
•
The end of Exposure will always trigger the next Readout.
•
The end of Exposure must always end after the current Readout.
•
The start of Exposure must always correspond with the Interline Time if Readout
is true.
•
Expose Start Delay equals the Readout time minus the Registered Exposure
Time.
Triggering during the Idle State
For applications requiring the shortest possible Trigger Latency and the smallest
possible Trigger Jitter the User Trigger signal should be applied when Imaging is false
and Idle is true.
In this case, Trigger Latency and Trigger Jitter are as indicated in the Specifications
section.
Triggering during the Readout State
For applications requiring the fastest triggering cycle time whereby the camera image
sensor is exposing and reading out simultaneously, then the User Trigger signal should
be applied as soon as a valid Trigger Ready is detected.
In this case, Trigger Latency and Trigger Jitter can be up to 1 line time since Exposure
must always begin on an Interline boundary.

Resolution and ROI frame rates
This section aims to provide users with performance information which identifies the
impact of reducing the region of interest on the camera’s maximum frame rate.
• The camera frame rate can be increased by reducing the camera's
Height attribute, resulting in a decreased region of interest (ROI) or
"window".
• The camera frame rate can also be increased by increasing the
camera's BinningY attribute, resulting in a vertically scaled image
(less overall height with same field of view).
• There is no frame rate increase with reduced width
• Frame rate data was generated using StreamBytesPerSecond equals
120 MB and an 8 bit pixel format such as Mono8 or Bayer8
