TM/RM/TMC/RMC-4200GE Software
1.3 Gigabit Ethernet Camera Interface
The GigE interface provides an easy to connect, high-bandwidth imaging solution, where video data is
sent as IP packets over an industry-standard GigE network. Point-to-point (unswitched) transmission is
up to 100 meters. With Gigabit Ethernet switches, the transmission distance is virtually unlimited.
Note:
Refer to the section on time-outs and packets in the Cam2Net User’s Manual for more
information on packet sizes for point-to-point and networked applications.
Communication with a GigE camera is completely transparent to the user, so if you are used to working
with Camera Link® and/or the JAI Cam2Net adapter, you will find it very easy to migrate.
The TM-4200GE camera has internal frame memory, which sends only the actual image data using the
Gigabit Ethernet interface.
At the PC, the Cam2Net Software Development Kit (SDK) provides a communications interface that
maps the RS-232 command channel through the IP link. All commands sent to and received from the
camera are transparently routed to and from the host PC using the GigE link.
Refer to the Cam2Net User’s Manual for details about network requirements, compatibility, and so on.

Configuring the TM-4200GE Camera
The configuration of the GigE camera consists of two parts:
•
The imager configuration (CCD and control circuits)
•
The internal framegrabber configuration
The imager can be configured for partial scan, binning, and so on, just like a Camera Link camera. The
internal framegrabber is automatically configured for the pixel type, windowing, image size, I/O and so
on, by the GigE camera software.
3.1 Setup
If you have a peer-to-peer connection between the TM-4200GE camera and your PC without network
switches, your packet size can be the default value (8128 bytes) as shown in Figure 7. However, if you
are connecting the TM-4200GE to your PC through a network switch, then you need to know the
maximum packet size that your network switch supports. Typically, if your switch supports jumbo
packets, then you should keep the packet size to 8128 bytes. If your switch does not support jumbo
packets, then you may need to change the packet size to 1440 bytes.
FIGURE 9.
Camera Interface Application Dialog Box
Note: If you connect the
camera through a network
switch, you may need to
modify the packet size.

3.3 Configuring the Internal Frame Grabber
The integrated camera software updates the internal framegrabber settings automatically. Also, because
the internal framegrabber configuration is independent of the imager configuration, you can set up (that
is, “window”) the internal framegrabber separately, for example, the Image Settings tab in the
integrated camera software. This has the added benefit of reducing unnecessary traffic on the GigE
network, and freeing bandwidth for other cameras.
3.4 Modes
This section includes examples of various types of setup actions available through the camera
configuration dialog box.
3.4.1
Check the Current Camera Setting
You can manually send camera commands from the Serial Free Form tab of the Configuration window
shown in Figure 12. Use the serial port and click the CR check box. Enter :RPST and click Send to get
the current camera setting. For detailed information about the current camera setting, refer to Table 4 on

Gain Settings
3.4.6 (a)
Gain
The Gain Settings control box, shown in Figure , allows you to change the Gain value from 0 to 4095.
To change the value, either click on the up or down button beside the current setting or enter the value
directly into the text box.
3.4.6 (b)
R Auto Gain Control
Click the R Auto Gain checkbox to enable gain channel balancing. The box stays checked only for the
duration of the channel balancing. Once the gain channel balancing has finished, the software
automatically disables this feature, and checkbox is unchecked. Please note that when channel
balancing, channel B aligns to channel A. Good channel balance is obtained by exposing the camera to
a uniform light source under 80% saturation. If the camera is in Async trigger mode and the trigger
frequency is low (or slow), it may take longer to collect enough frames to balance the channel. Another
condition in which Channel Balance may not work properly is when you use the high-speed shutter
under low-frequency light, such as fluorescent light. In both cases, the channel balance will time-out in
10 seconds if the balance is not reached.
While the channel balancing is occurring the configuration software may seem to freeze. The software
may become unresponsive for about ten seconds during this process.
3.4.7
The Gain
Offset Level
The Channel A offset level is the master, channel B is the slave. The offset level box, shown in
Figure 19, allows you to change Channel A offset voltage. To change the value, click on the up or down
arrow, or enter the value directly into the box. The camera itself automatically adjusts Channel B offset
voltage, every other frame. Please note that offset level control is not available in scan modes C and D

The look-up table (LUT) control, shown in Figure 20, allows you to change two knee point values.
FIGURE 20. Look-Up Table
Enter X1, Y1, X2, Y2 values directly to adjust the knee curve. In the integrated camera software, the
look-up table can also be controlled interactively. The Table Selection pull-down menu allows you to
select the Linear or Gamma 45 option. This control also allows you to check the positive or negative
box to choose an image option. There is no LUT for 12-bit output.
3.4.9
Memory Pages
All the camera parameters such as shutter mode, shutter speed, gain, offset level, scan mode, and LUT
can be saved into seven available memory pages on the EEPROM in the camera. The pages are
numbered 0-6. The Load Page button loads the corresponding camera settings from the EEPROM while
the write page button writes the current camera settings to the corresponding memory page in the
EEPROM.
Page 1, shown in Figure 21, is the power-up default page. Page 0 is the factory default. To save your
current camera settings for power up default, write the settings to memory page 1.

Signal Handling
This section briefly describes the signal handling of the GE cameras in the following sections:
•
See “Camera Inputs” on page 21
•
See “GPIO Control Block” on page 21
•
See “GPIO Look-Up Table” on page 23
•
See “GPIO Label Table” on page 24
•
See “Pulse Generators” on page 25
Refer to the Cam2Net User’s Manual for additional details.
4.1 Camera Inputs
For information on the polarity and type of the signals required to support specific camera functions,
refer to See “Asynchronous reset” on page 46.
The TM-4200GE has four externally controllable standard signals:
•
Trigger (VINIT or EXT_TRIG) (CC1 equivalent)
•
Integration Control (INTEG/ROI) (CC2 equivalent)
•
VD in (EXT_VD) (CC3 equivalent)
•
HD in (EXT_HD) (CC4 equivalent)
The labels for these signals in the GPIO Control Block programming language are:
•
I0, for VINIT (must be configured as EXT_TRIG)
•
I1, for VD in (must be configured as EXT_VD)
•
I2, for HD in (must be configured as EXT_HD)
•
I4, for Integration control (must be configured as INT)
For normal exposure operation, the INTEG signal must be high. In the GPIO lookup table language:
Q5=1. When it is low, the CCD readout is inhibited. To use the Integration Control, set Q5=I3 in the
GPIO lookup table.
4.2 Camera Outputs
When the Asynchronous Trigger is used, the strobe output indicates the exposure period.
•
I-4 for strobe output (must be configured as CAM_STROBE)
4.3 GPIO Control Block
Figure 23 below shows the GPIO Control Block signals for the GE Cameras.

Inputs I0 through I7 can be either external or internal inputs to the look-up table. The outputs are used
by the imager part of the GE camera.
The HD and VD signals can be passed through, bypassing the GPIO lookup table. Figure 25 on page 24
shows a screen dump of the GPIO function select page, where HD/VD bypass selection can be made.
The default value 0 (zero) is through the lookup table. Value 1 (one) is bypassing the lookup table.
The SDK and the Cam2Net Camera Interface Application both supply methods to select GPIO bypass
of the external VD and HD (I1 and I2).
It is also possible to select which signal source to lead to the GPIO inputs. This is done in the GPIO
look-up table page as shown in Figure 24.

4.5 Pulse Generators
The TM-4200GE camera has four independently programmable pulse generators. These generators can
run as either periodic or triggered. To run the pulse generators as triggered, they can be triggered on
either levels or signal edges. These generators can be tied to the camera inputs (camera-control lines).
For example, you can set pulse generator 0 in the Device Features tabbed dialog box to the following
values:
Delay = 600
Width = 14,000
Signal Handling
Page 26
TM/RM/TMC/RMC-4200GE Software
Granularity = 1
Now check the Periodic option and change the camera settings to Async 9. This triggers the camera,
based on the pulse width set in the Pulse Generator page.
Be careful with the pulse generator’s GPIO input and output polarity. If the delay and pulse-width
duration are switched around, the output polarity must be negated in the GPIO lookup table.
The pulse generators are configured in the Pulse Generator section of the Device Features tab of the
Advanced Configuration window as shown in Figure 26.

Series
Camera-Control Software
Operation Manual
TM-4200GE series.

Introduction
The Dual-Tap AccuPiXEL software offered for the TM-4200GE is
camera control software. It is not used in image capture, but rather to
configure camera functionality. The Cam2Net software and DualTap AccuPiXEL software have the same capabilities. The Dual-Tap
AccuPiXEL software is not needed to use the camera.
If you find it more comfortable to use, or the AccuPiXEL software seems more compatible with your
system, then it may be used instead of Cam2Net to configure camera functionality. The Cam2Net and
AccuPiXEL software can not run simultaneously.
The Dual-Tap AccuPiXEL series cameras are high-resolution, progressive scan cameras with JAI Inc.proprietary LUT control and other excellent features. The software for these cameras was developed to
function as standard software for the entire Dual-Tap AccuPiXEL series, and can open either the RS232 serial port (COM) or Camera Link. Camera Link users must physically install the Camera Link
framegrabber board into the PC. They must also install the Camera Link API (clserXXX.dll) software.
These cameras are specially designed to capture images in progressive scan (non-interlace) format,
producing a full frame of electronic shutter images, as well as normal images.
Although this software works with all AccuPiXEL cameras, the interface for the TM-4200GE series
appears different from other cameras compatible with this same software, and has various capabilities,
depending on the camera model the software is accessing. The TM-4200GE series software is therefore,
specifically documented in this section

Hardware Introduction
7.1 Product Description
The JAI Inc. TM-4200GE series1 is a Gigabit Ethernet output, high-resolution progressive scan CCD
camera. The interline-type CCD permits full vertical and horizontal resolution of very high speed
shutter images and applications. The electronic shutter, which has speeds to 1/16,000 sec., can be reset
asynchronously by external pulse control. The frame rate for a full image is 15 fps. A square imager
format with uniform square pixels provides superior image definition in any orientation. On-chip micro
lenses provide increased sensitivity.
The TM-4200GE2 has a full dynamic range control function, which can be set at externally selectable
look-up table (LUT) knee slopes to convert 10-bit input to 8-bit output, thereby optimizing the CCD’s
full dynamic range in the normal output signal range. As a Gigabit Ethernet output camera, the TM4200GE has semi-auto-gain balancing functions. The camera does not have a LUT for the 12-bit output.
Applications for the TM-4200GE include machine vision, medical imaging, intelligent transportation
systems, high-definition graphics, on-line inspection, gauging, character reading, archiving, and highsecurity surveillance.
1. Unless otherwise stated, all information in this manual applies to all cameras in the TM-4200GE
series, the TM-4200GE, RM-4200GE, the TMC-4200GE and the RMC-4200GE.
2. The TM-4200GE output is available with either 8-bit, 10-bit or 12-bit processing.

7.2 Features
•
Small size and light weight
The printed circuit boards in the TM-4200GE have been arranged to create modular electronics,
giving the camera flexibility. In addition, the use of miniature solid-state components results in a
compact, lightweight camera that is 51mm x 51mm x 74mm in dimensions, and weighs only 155
grams.
•
Imager
The TM-4200GE uses a dual-tap progressive scan interline transfer CCD that has the following
features:
- Resolution of 2k x 2k active pixels for excellent image quality.
- 7.4 x 7.4 µm square pixels for precise dimensional measurement.
- High-speed electronic shutter capability for high dynamic resolution of moving objects that
eliminates the need for a mechanical shutter.
- Progressive scan CCD eliminates interlace deterioration of image and increases ease of
computer interface.
- High sensitivity and low noise during fast scanning. The CCD has an excellent S/N ratio at
the default setting that is greater than 58dB.
- The CCD has a built-in microlens for increased quantum efficiency.
•
Electronic shutter
The TM-4200GE has a substrate drain-type shutter mechanism which provides superb pictures at
various speeds without smearing. For more information, please see Section 9.3 on page 62.
•
Asynchronous reset
The TM-4200GE captures async reset images and provides single-shot video output with single
FDV (frame data valid). This makes it simpler for an ordinary framegrabber to capture the
asynchronous reset images. The TM-4200GE’s asynchronous reset is flexible and accepts external
horizontal drive (HD) for phase locking. When the VINIT (5V) pulse is applied to CC1, it resets the
camera's scanning and purging of the CCD.
The TM-4200GE has three modes to control the asynchronous reset and shutter speed:
- Async, no shutter. The video signal and FDV are reset by external VINIT.
- Internal shutter speed control. The speed control varies from 1/60 to 1/16,000 sec. The
video signal and FDV starts with internal V reset timing related to shutter speed.
- External VINIT with pulse width. The duration between pulse edges controls the shutter
speed externally.
•
Output
The TM-4200GE has a dual-tap 10-bit/8-bit Gigabit Ethernet output.
•
Dual-channel auto black level balancing and semi-auto gain balancing
The TM-4200GE, as a dual-tap output camera, has auto black level balancing and semi-auto gain
balancing functions.
•
Warranty

8.2 Camera Setup
8.2.1
Heat Dissipation
The TM-4200GE is a compact 2k by 2k camera. Since all the electronics have been packed in a compact
package, the outer case of the camera can become hot due to heat dissipation. For optimal performance,
JAI Inc. recommends using a cooling fan to set up a positive air flow around the camera and following
the precautions below.
•
Mount the camera on a large heat sink (camera bracket) made out of heat-conductive material like
aluminum.
•
Make sure the flow of heat from the camera case to the bracket is not blocked by a non-conductive
material like plastic.
•
Make sure the camera has enough open space around it to facilitate the free flow of air.
Please contact JAI Inc. at (800) 445-5444 or send an E-mail to imaging@jai.com if you have any
questions.

Installation
Page 51
TM/TMC/RM/RMC-4200GE Hardware
8.2.4
Attaching the Camera Lens
The TM-4200GE camera accepts 1.2-inch or larger format size C-mount lenses. To attach the C-mount
lens1 to the camera, carefully engage the threads and rotate the lens clockwise until it firmly seats on the
mounting ring. Do not force the lens if it does not seat properly. Some lenses with extremely long
flange backs may exceed the mounting depth of the camera.
8.2.5
Adjustable Back-Focus
Before cameras are shipped, back focus is carefully set using a collimator, oscilloscope and other
specialized equipment. While the factory-set focus serves well in most cases, an adjustable back focus
makes it possible to improve image sharpness when using lower-cost zoom lenses, custom optics, or in
unusual parameters.
There should be an obvious need to refocus the lens before attempting to change the back focus. This is
a very exacting task. Some cameras have been returned to the factory to reset the back focus after failed
attempts to change the focus by customers. It might be wise to label cameras whose back focus was
adjusted.
1.
The camera must be connected to a monitor before attempting to adjust the back focus.
2.
To back focus the camera, first attach a C-mount lens in the mount. Be certain that the lens is properly seated.
3.
Next set the lens focus to infinity (if the lens is a manual iris, set the iris to a high f number while
still retaining a well illuminated image).
4.
Loosen the three miniature hex set-screws (use a 0.9 mm hex wrench) that lock the focus ring in
place (two screws for a CS-mount). Slowly turn the lens and focus ring assembly back and forth
until you obtain the best image of the desired object. This sets the back focus. Once the best image
is obtained, tighten the focus ring set-screws until they are snug. Do not over-tighten the screws.
Note: Mini-bayonet cameras adapted to C-mount do not have the back focus feature.
FIGURE 52. Back Focus Set-Screw Locations
Loosen the three
2mm screws around
the perimeter of the
C-mount lens collar
(two 2mm screws for a
CS-mount) to adjust the
back focus. Unless you
absolutely must, do not
attempt to adjust this
focus.
1. C-mount to F-mount and C-mount to K-mount adapters are available for larger format lenses
(35mm). Check with local photography dealers for these lens adapters.

Operation
9.1 Progressive Scanning
Standard TV-system scanning is 525 lines interlace scanning as specified in the RS-170 protocol. Every
other horizontal line (odd lines and even lines) is scanned at a 60Hz rate per field, and the scanning is
completed with two fields (one frame) at 30Hz rate. Because of the interlace scanning, the vertical
resolution of CCD cameras is limited at 350 TV lines, regardless of the horizontal resolution. When
electronic shutter is applied, the CCD can hold only one field of charge at each exposure. This means
that the vertical resolution of the electronic-shutter camera is only 244 TV lines. The situation is the
same for an HDTV-format camera, since it has interlaced scanning and the vertical resolution of the
shuttered image is 500 lines.
The TM-4200GE uses a state-of-the-art progressive scanning interline transfer CCD which scans all
lines sequentially from top to bottom at one frame rate. Like a non-interlace computer screen, it
generates a stable, crisp image without alternating lines and provides full vertical TV resolution of 1000
lines (a normal TV monitor display may not be able to show 1000 lines due to monitor resolution of
30Hz scanning).
The interline transfer architecture is also important to generate simultaneous shuttering. This is different
from full frame transfer architecture which requires a mechanical shutter or strobe light in order to
freeze the object motion.
9.1.1
Preset Scan Area
TM/TMC-4200 has four fixed Scan Area Modes: full scan, centered 1000 lines, centered 500 lines, and
centered 250 lines. In full scan mode, all active lines of the CCD sensor, 2048 lines, are transferred out
line by line. In centered mode 1000 lines are transferred out, in 500 line and 250 line mode, only the
centered lines are transferred out line by line. The rest of the lines are dumped out using the fast dump
function of the CCD. This transfer method causes the frame rate of each mode to vary.
Operation
Page 53
TM/TMC/RM/RMC-4200GE Hardware
9.1.2
Programmable Scan Area
In Programmable Scan Area Mode, users can specify both the start point of the active scan area and the
total active lines through the serial communication commands. The area selected by users is transferred
out line by line. The rest of the lines are dumped out using the fast dump function of the CCD. The
frame rate in this mode varies according to the selected active area. When the active area starts from x
row, and the active lines are y lines, the frame rate can be calculated using the following formulas.

For a color CCD, the upper-left Bayer pattern changes, depending on the start point location. If the start
point is the odd row, the upper-left Bayer pattern is G. In RG if the start point is the even row, the
upper-left bayer pattern is B in BG.

Full Scan Area 2x2 Binning
TM/TMC-4200 CL has a 2x2 binning of the full scan area. In full scan 2x2 binning mode, pixel (i, j)
includes all the information of pixel (2i-1, 2j-1), (2i-1, 2j), (2i, 2j-1) and (2i, 2j) in normal full scan
mode (where i, j=1 2, ..., 1024). In this mode vertical binning makes frame transfer faster than normal
scan mode, however, due to the mixture of pixel information, the camera resolution is low in this mode,
and the Bayer pattern CCD camera loses color information.

Resolution Proportional Digital Zoom
TM-4200GE has four resolution proportional digital zoom selections: 1x, 1.3x, 2x, and 4x. Resolution
Proportional Digital Zoom (RPDZ) is a patent-pending image post processing algorithm that enables
the user to digitally modify the camera’s field of view while maintaining a constant data rate between
the camera and the host computer. This is accomplished by sub-sampling pixels in the field of view in a
manner proportional to the digital zoom level.
Note:
The number of pixels used to create an image in these modes is always 512(H) x 512(V).

9.2 Bayer Color Filter (Color Versions)
JAI Inc. AccuPiXEL series color cameras are high-resolution, high-speed progressive scan CCD
cameras. The interline transfer, progressive scan CCD permits full vertical and horizontal resolution of
images acquired at very high shutter speeds. The electronic shutter, which has speeds to 1/16,000 sec.,
can be reset asynchronously by external pulse control. Uniform square pixels provide superior image
definition in any orientation. On-chip micro lenses mean increased sensitivity.
9.2.1
Color Filter Array
JAI Inc. AccuPiXEL cameras use Bayer CFA (color filter array) as their standard primary color filter.
This filter provides the most popular color interpolation supported by numerous software suppliers.
The digital format allows the camera to output accurate pixel data, including the color information.
When the data is stored in the frame buffer of a framegrabber or computer, the color information is
easily manipulated to restore the original color images. Because the color filter array contains only a
single R, G or B color in each pixel, the restored image has to fill in colors in the missing pixel
locations. The software uses neighboring pixel information to “guess” the missing colors to make
smooth, clear images. This is called “color interpolation.” Today’s high-speed computers allow such
color interpolation to be done almost in real time. Because these cameras do not contain internal colorprocessing circuitry, they are smaller and less expensive than full-function color cameras.
9.2.2
Bayer Color Filter Array (CFA)
The Bayer CFA is an R, G, B primary color filter array. This is the most widely accepted CFA for the
single-chip CCD progressive scan format. This type of array layout has a specific order for each color’s
pixels. Since the human eye’s resolution and color recognition are highest at green, the CFA contains
two greens per each red and blue.
It is critical for the framegrabber and color interpolation to know where the individual color pixels exist
relative to sync (LDV and FDV) timing.
This requirement makes digital output the preferred choice, because the timing relationships are very
accurate

9.2.3
Starting Pixel Configuration
All manufacturers produce identical Bayer CFAs, but there are slight differences between the CCDs
produced by different manufacturers. The first line is generally R and G. The camera timing can be
adjusted to start with either G or R by skipping the very first pixels at each line. The majority of color
interpolation software can select between a variety of pixel relations, such as R/G start or G/R start, as
well as G/B start and B/G start. Once the correct scanning is configured, the rest of the interpolation is
exactly the same. Contact JAI Inc. for further information regarding CCD manufacturers.

The individual color data is exactly the same as the pixel data. This means that the timing relationships
of the color cameras are also the same as of the monochrome cameras.

Camera Functions
AccuPiXEL color cameras perform all functions the same way as monochrome cameras. However,
because of color characteristics, the LUT (Look-up Table) is different. The LUT is a powerful tool to
adjust the dynamic range as well as color dynamic range. Since human color perception is non-linear,
Operation
Page 61
TM/TMC/RM/RMC-4200GE Hardware
LUT selection can help optimize color contrast by selecting the LUT value. Gamma 0.45 is logarithmic
and is closed to human perception.
When LUT is selected, black-level adjustment must be more accurate than for monochrome cameras.

Interpolation Software
The color interpolation can be performed in the framegrabber or by using the host computer’s CPU.
Most major framegrabbers with processing capability provide tools for color interpolation. Software
vision packages also provide color interpolation capability, but speed and performance may be
determined by the PC’s resources and by the complexity of the interpolation routine.
9.2.8
Color Interpolation
The Bayer pattern color filter array (CFA) consists of R, G, and B primary colors. Each pixel represents
one of three colors. In order to display or print color images, the signal has to be converted to RGB
output, which has three independent channels (outputs) and sync signals.
Color interpolation software or firmware performs the color
preprocessing by filling the missing color pixels with neighboring
pixels. It then separates the stream of data, (8-bit or 10-bit) into 3 (RGB)
data (8-bit x 3) and adds the color matrix to adjust and balance each of
the R,G, and B channels (white balance or color balance).
The image quality depends on the camera’s own pixel data (including
pixel data independency from neighboring pixels, noise and color filter),
and interpolation of the software algorithm such as 3 x 3 interpolation, 2
x 2 interpolation, color matrix, white balance capability, and so on.
Green Red Green
Blue Green Blue
Green Red Green
All AccuPiXEL color cameras are carefully designed for maximum color performance. JAI Inc.
strongly suggests that you use digital output for the best performance.
Some software is used on board (FPGA or DSP) to perform the interpolation. Other software simply
uses the host computer’s memory and CPU. The process speed may vary depending on the architecture
and speed of the computer.

Programmable Exposure-Continuous Mode
The exposure time of TM/TMC-4200GE can be specified from one video line to a maximum of one
frame using the serial communication commands in the Continuous Mode. There is overhead where the
specified exposure time is n video lines, making the real exposure time equal to
Exposure Time=

{ (n+1)

When n=0, the exposure time is the minimum exposure time. It is equal to:

In this mode the maximum exposure time is equal to the setting for one frame. If the user specified
exposure time is longer than the time allowed for one frame, it will be ignored by the camera.
9.3.3
Asynchronous No Shutter Mode
In Asynchronous No Shutter Mode, applying the external trigger starts a camera scan reset. The camera
finishes the line it is scanning and scans an additional 9 video lines, this charge is sent to the horizontal
register.
Because the external trigger is randomly applied, the new image charge may overlap with the previous
image. To prevent an existing charge accumulation from interfering with a new image, most users set
up the application in a dark area and depend on a strobe light for illumination. From the time the
external trigger activates until the transfer gate turns off, about 9.5 video lines are available for
integration; if everything is properly configured, the strobe flashes during this time.

9.3.4
Asynchronous Programmable Exposure Mode
In Asynchronous Programmable Exposure Mode, when an external trigger is applied, the exposure
starts after one discharge signal (Vsub), which happens after the trigger’s active edge is off. Because
the discharge signal (Vsub) synchronizes with LDV in this mode, there is a maximum one video line of
jitter between the trigger active edges to discharge signals (Vsub) off. In this mode, the exposure time
from 1 video line to 2080 video lines can be controlled through serial communication commands in one
video line steps. In this mode, the minimum exposure time is equal to 1 video line plus overhead: the
maximum exposure time is equal to 2080 video lines plus overhead. Where the specified exposure time
is n video lines, the real exposure time is equal to:

9.3.5
Pulse Width Control Mode
In Pulse Width Control (PWC) Mode, the exposure time is controlled by the external trigger. When an
external trigger is applied, one discharge signal (Vsub) is generated right after the active edge of the
trigger. The exposure starts when the discharge signal is in the off state. The exposure is off following
the trigger active off. Exposure time is controlled by the pulse width of the external trigger. Because the
CCD requires some overhead from trigger active off to the transfer gate event, the actual exposure time
is equal to:
Exposure Time = Pulse Width +20.6μs
Since one discharge signal (Vsub) is generated right after the active edge of the trigger, it is
asynchronous with LDV, and the discharge signal may happen during an active video transfer period,
visible reset noise may show in the current image. To avoid reset noise, the maximum trigger frequency
in PWC mode should be less than 1/ (exposure time + one frame transferring time).
The minimum active period of the external trigger is 5μs. Theoretically, the maximum active period of
the external trigger is unlimited. But, due to the usability of images at 25oC it is recommended the
active period of the external trigger be no longer than one second.

Particle Imaging Velocimetry Fixed Exposure Mode
In Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV) Fixed Exposure Mode, when an external trigger is applied, the
first time exposure starts the same as PWC mode does. It lasts a very short period (8µs). The second
time exposure starts during the transferring time of the first image accumulated in the first exposure
time. The second time exposure continues until the first image transfers completely. The second image
is transferred after the second exposure. There is a short period (500ns) between the first exposure and
the second exposure. In order to keep two exposure periods constant, the LDV is reset before the first
image is transferred out.
The maximum trigger frequency in this mode is equal to 1/ (transfer time of two frames + 4µs).
The minimum active period of the external trigger is 5μs

PWC PIV Mode
The PWC PIV is based on PIV Fixed Exposure. In this mode, the first time exposure is controlled by
the pulse width of the external trigger, which is similar to PWC mode. The real exposure time of the
first image is equal to the pulse width of the external trigger.
The maximum trigger frequency in this mode is equal to 1/ (transfer time of two frames + exposure time
of the first image).
The minimum active period of the external trigger is 10 pixel clocks (250ns)

The typical interline transfer CCD has fixed noise levels based on dark current (thermal or KT noise),
pattern noise, and the operating clock speed. In general, the level of the 20 MHz pixel clock CCD at
room temperature is around 20 to 50 electrons. The maximum capacity of CCD charges is limited by the
well capacity at saturation. The range is limited by the structure and the pixel size.
The TM-4200GE uses a CCD with 7.4 µm x 7.4 µm pixel and two-phase vertical shift register structure.
The well capacity is 40,000 electrons. The theoretical dynamic range is 40,000:30 = 1333:1 (60 dB).
A typical CCD camera does not use the full dynamic range due to the nominal gain and the output
specification such as RS-170. The typical CCD camera’s gain is set at 16 to 22 dB and the RS-170 video
level is 714 mV. Using 20 dB gain for the calculation, CCD output is limited to 714/10 = 71.4 mV.
Since the CCD’s saturation voltage is 400 mV to 500 mV, it uses less than 1/5 of the full dynamic range.
Machine vision and outdoor applications, cannot afford to miss image information behind the
saturation, which is why the dynamic range adaptation is critical.
9.4.1
Programmable Look-Up Table (LUT) and Knee Control
The TM-4200GE has a built-in LUT (look-up table) for dynamic range control.
At a specific gain setting, the offset (minimum level.... dark point) and A/D reference top voltage
(maximum level... saturation point) are set to 12-bit A/D input so that the full dynamic range of the
CCD is utilized at 12-bit references as the input and the LUT output is converted into either 8-bit or 10bit to adjust the gamma correction. There is no 12-bit LUT.
The look-up table has two knee points (variable gamma selection) that allow the 10-bit input to be
segmented into three regions. The look-up table selection can be made by knee curve direct input.
