Introduction
Cleaning optics
Caution

Do not touch any optics with fingers. Oil from fingers can
damage fragile optical coatings.
Identifying debris
Debris on the image sensor or optical components appears as a darkened area
or smudge on a camera image. Do not confuse this with a pixel defect which
appears as a distinct point.
Locating debris
First determine whether the debris is on the sensor glass, IR filter (if used), or
lens. The farther away the debris is from the sensor, the blurrier the debris
appears on a camera image.
Stream a live image from the camera using a uniform target, such as a piece of
paper. To determine if the debris is on the camera lens, rotate the lens independent of the camera. If the spot moves, the debris is on the lens. Otherwise, the
debris is on the IR filter (if used) or sensor glass.
Color cameras with IR filter
Prosilica GC color cameras are equipped with an IR filter. With no lens or lens
cap on a camera, the IR filter is exposed and debris can accumulate on it. This is
the most probable location for debris. It should not be necessary to remove the
IR filter for cleaning. Clean the outside of the IR filter glass using the techniques explained in the next section.
If it is determined that the debris is on the inside surface of the filter glass, or
the sensor glass, IR filter removal is necessary. Depending on the manufacturing date of your Prosilica GC camera, the IR filter may be slot type, or pinhole
type. Slot type filters can be removed using a small flat head screw driver. Pinhole type filters require a pin spanner wrench for removal.
Note

A pin spanner wrench suitable for IR filter removal is available
for purchase from AVT.

Introduction
Cleaning with air
Blow directly on the contaminated surface with moderate pressure, clean compressed air.
Caution

Do not exceed 90 psi. If using canned air (typically ~ 70 psi
when full), do not shake or tilt the can, as extreme changes
in temperature due to sudden cold air can crack the optic
glass.
View a live image with the camera after blowing. If debris is still present, repeat
the process until it is determined that the particulate cannot be dislodged. If
this is the case, proceed to the contact cleaning technique.
Contact cleaning
Only use this method if the above air cleaning method does not sufficiently
clean the surface. Use 99% pure isopropyl alcohol and clean cotton swabs. Wet
the swab in the alcohol. Quickly wipe the optics in a single stroke. Prolonged
exposure of alcohol on the swab can cause the swab glue to loosen and transfer
to the optic glass. Do not reuse the same swab. Repeat this process until the
debris is removed. If this process fails to remove the debris, contact AVT.

Filter
Filter
All Prosilica GC color models are equipped with an infrared block filter (IR filter). This filter is employed to prevent infrared wavelength photons from passing to the sensor. In the absence of IR filter, images are dominated by red and
incapable of being properly color balanced. Monochrome cameras do not
employ an IR filter.

Isolated IO ground
The Isolated IO GND connection provides the user ground reference and return
path for In 1, and Out 1. It is recommended that the ground wiring be physically
close to the In/Out wiring to prevent parasitic coupling. For example, a good
cable design connects In 1 to one conductor of a twisted pair, Isolated IO GND
to the second conductor of the same twisted pair.

Camera interfaces
Input triggers
Input triggers 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 the signal. The camera can also be programmed to capture an
image at some programmable delay time after the trigger event.
In 1 – opto-isolated
In 1 is optically isolated and can be used in electrically noisy environments to
prevent false trigger events. Tie trigger ground to Isolated IO GND to complete
the trigger circuit. Compared to the non-isolated trigger, In 1 has a longer
propagation time. It can be driven from 5 to 24 V with a minimum current
source of 10 mA. See Camera I/O opto-isolated user circuit example for wiring
information.
In 2 – non-isolated
In 2 is not electrically isolated and can be used when environmental noise is
inconsequential and faster trigger response is required. The required trigger
signal is low voltage TTL 3.3 V. Tie trigger ground to Signal GND to complete
the trigger circuit. See Camera I/O non-isolated user circuit example for wiring
information.
Caution
Exceeding 5.1 V on In 2 can permanently damage the camera.

Output signals
Output signals can be assigned to a variety of internal camera signals via software. They can be configured to active high or active low. The internal camera
signals are listed as follows:
Exposing
Corresponds to when camera is integrating light.
Trigger Ready
Indicates when the camera is ready to 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.
Prosilica GC Technical Manual V2.0.6

Camera interfaces
Out 1 – opto-isolated
Out 1 signal is optically isolated and requires a user voltage with a suitable pull
up resistor. Tie signal ground to Isolated IO GND to complete the external circuit. See Camera I/O opto-isolated user circuit example for wiring information.
Out 2– non-isolated
Out 2 signal is not electrically isolated and can be used when environmental
electrical noise is inconsequential and faster trigger response is required. Use
Signal GND to complete the external circuit. The output signal is a low voltage
TTL, maximum 3.3 V. Not suitable for driving loads in excess of 24 mA. See
Camera I/O non-isolated user circuit example for wiring information.
Signal ground
Signal Ground must be connected to the user’s external circuit ground if In 2 or
Out 2 is to be used, or if the RS-232 port is to be used. Note that Signal Ground
is common with Camera GND; however, it is good practice to provide a separate
ground connection for power and signal.
Video iris
This signal can be used to drive the video input of a video iris lens. See Video iris
output description section for wiring information.
Reserved
These signals are reserved for future use and should be left disconnected.

Camera interfaces
Video iris output description
Prosilica GC cameras provide built-in auto iris controls for controlling videotype 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.
Caution

CAMERA POWER
The following schematic uses CAMERA POWER to power the
video iris lens, and assumes CAMERA POWER = 12 V. Most video
iris lenses operate at a 8–16 V input voltage. Therefore, this
circuit is not appropriate if using a 24 V camera power supply. Doing so may irreparably damage your lens. Please consult your video iris lens specifications for the appropriate drive
voltage.


•

•
•
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.
Exposure 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 camera 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, apply the User Trigger
signal as soon as a valid Trigger Ready is detected. In this case, Trigger Latency
and Trigger Jitter can be up to 1 row time since Exposure must always begin on
an Interline boundary.

Resolution and ROI frame rates
Resolution and ROI frame rates
This section charts the resulting frame rate from changing sensor region of
interest (ROI), from full image to a single line.
Note
• Frame rate data was generated using StreamBytesPerSecond = 124 MB/s and an 8-bit pixel format such as
Mono8, BayerBG8, or BayerRG8. Frame rates may be
lower if using network hardware incapable of 124 MB/s.
• 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.
