2. Camera Setup

A basic camera and frame grabber system setup, as shown in Figure 1 below, requires a

UP-900CL-12B 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.

3 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.

Camera settings can be saved into four different user pages. Once the user page is saved and set between shutter speeds 4 and 7, it will be activated as long as the camera is powered ON. User

Page works in both rear plate control and RS232C communication selections.

3.5 Gain Control (AGC/MGC)

Manual gain control (MGC)

MGC is standard factory setting on this camera. The manual gain control can be adjusted from 9 dB to 18 dB only due to the factory default setting of AGC and AGC MAX control. Adjusting the gain potentiometer located on rear panel, in figure 6, will change the gain value.

Automatic gain control (AGC):

AGC is not available and it is not recommended to use by UNIQ.

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.

6.6 External Synchronization and Gen-lock

(via Camera Link interface ONLY)

The UP-900CL-12B camera automatically locks to the external sync source. The external sync source must match the camera HD and VD specification, which are 15.73KHz and 14.98Hz respectively. Both external HD and VD are TTL level signals. a) HD

Pulse width: 0.5-50% duty cycles

Figure 10. External Synchronization and Gen-lock Timing

6.7 Integration

(via 12-pin Hirose connector ONLY)

The UP-900CL-12B 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 UP-900CL-12B camera. There are a variety of C-mount lenses in the market that works with UP-900CL-12B 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.
