Overview
Overview
The XC-555/555P is an ultra-small color camera
module that utilizes a 1/2- type Charge Coupled
Device.
Main Features
Ultra-small size and lightweight
The camera is so small and light that you can install it
anywhere: even in locations where conventional video
cameras cannot be installed.
Electronic shutter with a wide range of
operating speeds
Using the electronic shutter DIP switches, these levels
of shutter speed (OFF, 1/1000, and FLICKERLESS)
are available to allow you to match the shutter speed to
the shooting conditions.
When you set the DIP switches for the CCD IRIS
function, the shutter speed is adjusted automatically,
based on the amount of light allowed to enter, ensuring
the most appropriate level of image signal.
High resolution
A built-in Super HAD (Hole Accumulated Diode)
sensor, allows high sensitivity, low smear images. You
can shoot, even under poor lighting conditions.
High sensitivity
With a CCD offering 380,000 effective pixels, highresolution images can be obtained.
Four white balance adjustment modes
Using the white balance DIP switches, you can choose
from among four white balance modes (3200K/5600K/
ATW/MAN) to choose the best settings for shooting
conditions, and the most appropriate color
compensation.

RS-232C Command List
RS-232C Command List
Use of RS-232C control software which has been
developed based upon this command list may cause
malfunction or damage to hardware and software.
Sony Corporation is not liable for any such damage.
You can control various camera functions externally
by sending commands via the camera’s RS-232C I/F
(interface). Because the camera is equipped with
internal memory, setting values for various functions
input via RS-232C commands can be saved. The
memory is not volatile memory, so the information
will be preserved, even if the power to the camera is
turned off, enabling you to use the camera with the
same settings, and in the same way, both before and
after the power is cut off restored.
Functions That can be Controlled via the RS232C Interface
You can control the following functions using the program developed according to this command list.

RS-232C Command List
Precautions to be Observed
When Using RS-232C
Commands
• When the unit is shipped from the factory, the RS232C input item is set to [OFF]. To send RS-232C
commands to the camera, flip the DIP-switch to
[ON]. For details, refer to “Setting the RS-232C
switch” in the next column.
Changing the setting of the RS-232C switch falls
under the heading of dismantling the camera, and
is outside the scope of the warranty. To change the
setting, request assistance from the dealer from
whom you purchased your camera.
• When toggling the RS-232C Input/Output function
on and off, and when connecting the camera and a
host computer, be sure perform any operations only
after shutting off the power of both the camera and
the host computer.
• When controlling the camera using the RS-232C
feature, the DIP switches on the camera and the R/B
adjustment volume settings are disabled.
• Use only the Sony DC-700/700CE power adaptors.
The DC-77RR/77RRCE, DC-777/777P, CMA-D2/
D2CE, and CMA-D2MD adaptors cannot be used.
• Keep in mind the following with respect to the RS232C TXD and RXD connectors:
– Do not allow the voltage applied to exceed a
margin of +/– 10V with the RXD (pin 11 of the 12
multi-connector).
– The signal level output from the TXD (pin 10 of
the 12 multi-connector) is within +/– 5.4V (TYP).
Do not apply external voltage.

Warning
Be aware that changing the setting of the RS-232C
switches falls under the heading of dismantling the
camera, and anything beyond this change of settings,
carried out by a Sony-authorized repair department
(company), is outside the scope of the warranty.
Notes
• Be sure to make these changes only after turning off
the power to the camera.
• In order to keep dust from adhering to the lightreceptor surface of the CCD, attach the lens mount
cap, etc., beforehand.
1
Detach the 12-pin cable from the camera.
2
Using a Philips screwdriver, remove the Philips
screws (7) from the camera.
At this point, the head block may fall out because
of elasticity of wires attached to the CCD head
block. Take care to avoid this.
3
Push the rear panel to which the 12-pin connector
is attached about 3 mm into the frame of the
camera. The hidden RS-232C DIP switches will
become visible in the little window provided to
carry out DIP switch operations.
4
Switch both of the last two switches on the left end
of the row to the down position.

5
Push the back panel and the CCD head block back
into their previous positions, and tighten the
Philips screws ( 7) to a torque of 0.18 N•m.
Communication
Specifications
This unit utilizes an RS-232C-compliant, flow
controlled, synchronous serial interface.
Because the RS-232C setting is set to OFF when the
unit is shipped from the factory, you must change the
setting of the internal DIP switches to utilizes the RS232C function. (Before changing the settings make
absolutely sure that the power to the unit is turned off.
(See “Setting the RS-232C Switches” (page 11).))
The parameters are as follows.

Characters that can be transmitted are ASCII codes
30h to 39h, 41h to 5Ah (Alphabetic capital letters A to
Z, Arabic numerals 0 to 9), a space (20h), and a
Carriage Return (0Dh).
Thus the commands used to control the camera are
made up of the character set specified above, and each
command must end with a Carriage Return character
(0Dh).
Because this is a no-flow-control protocol, to prevent
communication overflows, if the host side sends one
byte, before sending the next byte, insert a 1 ms stop
period.

RS-232C Command List
The Sequence from
“Power up” to
Beginning/End of
Communication
8
If you send a [STOP] from the host, the camera
returns an [OKAY], then it exits the RS-232C
mode and re-enters the normal operating mode.
(That is, it returns to the state it was in after step 1,
above.)
Commands expressed in writing as alphabetic letters
are always enclosed in brackets [ ], and Carriage
Return is abbreviated. For example, what is written on
the page as [12AB] is sent as 31h, 32h, 41h, 42h, and
0Dh in data.
1
Immediately after the power is turned on, the
camera makes the required settings based on
information stored in non-volatile memory, and the
camera begins to start up.
At this point in time, RS-232C communication is
not permitted.
2
After start-up is completed, the camera sends
[ACTV] to the host.
After the host has received this [ACTV]
transmission, send your commands to the camera.
3
Send the version confirmation command [VERS]
from the host.
Based on this, the camera enters the RS-232C
mode.
4
The camera sends its software version information
[X1**] 1) and [OKAY]to the host.
1)
[X] indicates that this is an XC series camera.
[1] is a product code that indicates this is an XC-555. A [2]
would indicate an XC-555P.
[**] indicates the version of the software. [10] in place of
** would indicate Version 1.0.
5
After the [OKAY] is sent in step 4, the camera is
able to receive setting change commands from the
host, and it waits for communication.
6
Send a command from the host.
7
The camera receives the command, and when
execution is complete, it returns an [OKAY]. (For
all commands except the One Push AWB
command.)
If a receive error or a command error occurs,
[CERR] is returned from the camera.
Do not send the next command from the host until
an answering (Ack) [OKAY] or [CERR] is
received from the camera.

When power to the camera turned on, the settings on “Factory” is
loaded automatically. (The AGC, Shutter, W.balance, and VBS/
YC settings made using the DIP switches or made using the R/B
adjustment volume are enabled. )
The XC-555 is equipped with three Memory Banks
(Factory/A/B) to hold camera settings. Factory is “read
only,” holding the settings made when the camera was
shipped from the factory. A and B can be written to, as
well as read from, and the user utilizes these locations
to hold setting values, calling them up when needed.
When the camera is in operation, valid settings are
held in volatile memory. The user sends RS-232C
commands to change the camera settings, overwriting
the settings information held in these memory
locations.
Using the “Memory Save” command, setting
information can be written to either of the non-volatile
Memory Bank A or Memory Bank B locations.
Using the “Memory Load” command, the information
stored in Memory Banks Factory, A, or B, can be read
out.
Load (Factory)” is carried out in RS-232C mode,
settings made with the DIP switches on the side of the
camera or with the R/B adjustment volume are
rendered invalid, and the settings are returned to those
made when the camera was shipped from the factory.
When the RS-232C switches hidden by the camera
cover are set to OFF, Memory Banks A and B are
disabled, so when power to the camera is turned on,
the camera starts up normally, using the settings stored
in Memory Bank Factory.
(This is the way the camera is shipped from the
factory.)
When power to the camera turned on, the settings
information loaded with the most recent “Memory
Load” command is read out of memory, and used as
the current settings. (When the camera is shipped from
the factory, the information stored in the Memory
Bank Factory is set to be read out when power is
turned on.)
Settings made with the DIP switches on the side of the
camera or with the R/B adjustment volume are
recognized as the same as some of those held in the
Factory memory location. However, when “Memory

Shutter Speed and the
Settings Command
(See “Shutter speed (Variable)” (page 15).)
Note
The Shutter speed shown in the table is a logical value
for the camera’s internal shutter control circuits, and
errors occurring during operation are not included.
Example
The shutter speed (in units of microseconds) to be set
and the relevant command (in hexadecimal) are read
out from the table below. Add the first digit to [E348],
and add the last two digits to [E400], then send this
value to the camera.
When the Shutter speed is set to 1,311 microseconds
for the NTSC model
From the table, the relevant command [123] is
identified. The actual command sent to the camera is
calculated as E348 + 1 = E349 / E400 +23 = E423,
yielding [E349], [E423].
