1. Introduction
1.1 General Description
The UC-610CL is a color digital CCD camera using progressive scanning interline-transfer
technology with R, G, B primary color mosaic filters (Bayer arrangement). A frame grabber collects
raw data and displays color images by software conversion. This color camera is suitable for
applications where color, high frame rate and high speed are required. With the asynchronous
capture control, high speed moving objects can be captured precisely. The square pixels are
ideally for processing, measuring, and analyzing tasks. This compact and lightweight camera offers
excellent signal to noise performance.
1.2 Features
· 1/3” Progressive scan CCD imager
(R, G, B primary color mosaic filters)
· 659 x 494 active pixels
· 10 bit Camera Link output
· Full frame shutter (1/110 ~ 1/110,000 sec.)
· <56 dB
· Asynchronous reset at full frame shutter
· 110 Hz frame rate
· 40 MHz pixel clock
· RS232C interface control
· C-mount lens
1.3 Applications
UC-610CL applications include machine vision, automated inspection, motion capture and analysis,
medical imaging, biomedical imaging, non-contact measurement, and other scientific and industrial
applications where color image and high frame rate are needed.

2. Camera Setup
A basic camera and frame grabber system setup, as shown in Figure 1 below, requires a UC-610CL
camera, a standard C-mount lens, a PS-12C power supply or equivalent, a PC system and a VGA
monitor, a frame grabber, and an external trigger device if necessary.

The 12-pin Hirose connector is located on the
rear panel of the camera. All ground signals
on pin 1, 3, 5, and 8 are common grounds.
+12 V DC input is recommended on pin 2, but
this camera should withstand +12 V ± 1V
input voltage. Make sure to set the NM/AM
switch to NM position for external HD and VD
locking. Figure 2 below shows a top view of
the 12-pin Hirose connector.

select camera gain, reference, or to save a user page, set NS/DS switch to NS position. To adjust
shutter speed, set NS/DS to DS position. For normal shutter speed, make sure to set NM/AM mode
to NM location. For asynchronous capture, set NM/AM mode to AM location.

Note: This gain potentiometer only applies to cameras without Up/Down switch
on rear plate.
Manual gain control (MGC)
MGC is standard factory setting on this camera. The manual gain control can be adjusted from 4 dB
to 36 dB. Adjusting the gain potentiometer located on rear panel will change the gain value.
Automatic gain control (AGC):
AGC is not available and it is not recommended to use. Contact UNIQ for further details.

### = Hexadecimals (000 ~ 3ff). If no number entered, gain will be
increased by factor of 1. If a number is entered, then number will be
added to stored gain.
### = Hexadecimals (000 ~ 3ff).
Same as gi above, except it will be decreased.
### = Hexadecimals (000 ~ 3ff). Refer to the gain curves below for
details. Only one curve applies to each camera depending on camera
model, contact UNIQ for further details.
### = Hexadecimals (000 ~ 3ff). If no number entered, reference
will be increased by factor of 1. If a number is entered, then number
will be added to stored reference.
Note: It’s very uncommon to change reference level, contact UNIQ for
further details.
Note:
1. Command must be in “lower case.”
2. All numbers have to be in “hex” format, use a PC calculator to convert between hex and
decimal numbers if necessary.
3. Command example:
User Enters: “sm5” (shutter speed at 5)
Camera returns: “?” or “3f” in Hex
(incorrect answer, no RS232C communication or something’s wrong)
or
Camera return: “” or “1” in Hex (correct answer, it might show other
symbols depending on PC system)

6.6 External Synchronization and Gen-lock (via Camera Link interface ONLY)
The UC-610CL camera automatically locks to the external sync source. The external sync source
must match the camera HD and VD specification, which are 55.554 KHz and 110.0 Hz respectively.
Both external HD and VD are TTL level signals.

6.7 Integration (via 12-pin Hirose connector ONLY)
The UC-610CL camera can be integrated up to 2 seconds without severe noise or dark current
effect. To start integration, pin #11 (same as pin #27 of 40-pin digital connector) of the 12-pin
connector must be connected to GND or 0V. The integrated video will be shifted out following the
next vertical drive after pin #11 goes back to high or 5V level, as shown in figure 9 below. If a
frame grabber does not capture the immediate frame or integrated video, the normal video (before
the integration) will display again on the monitor.

7. Camera accessories
7.1 Power Supply and Power Cable
12 V DC regulated power supply with 1A current output or better is recommended. This camera
uses Hirose 12-pin connector for power source. The matting cable plug connector can be
purchased through distributors or UNIQ and the Hirose part number is HR10A10P12S. UNIQ
provides power supplies and power cables as "one stop shopping" for customers. Alternatively, the
power supplies and power cables can be purchased through power supply and cable vendors.
Contact UNIQ for vendor list.
7.2 Lens
C-mount lens is the standard lens for UC-610CL camera. There are a variety of C-mount lenses in
the market that works with UC-610CL camera. Make sure the quality and specification of the lens
match the camera's application. Some of the most popular lenses in the market, such as
Cosmicar, Fujinon, Rodenstock, and Schneider, are recommended.
7.3 Camera Link Cable
Camera Link cable can be purchased from 3M, Mouser, Digi-Key and frame grabber vendors.
