SP-5000M-USB / SP-5000C-USB
Before using this camera
EMVA 1288
With regard to signal to noise ratio in this manual, specifications measured by EMVA 1288 are used
together with specifications by a traditional measurement method.
EMVA 1288 is a more complete measurement that considers multiple noise sources, including
random noise, pattern noise, and shading. Additionally, EMVA 1288 incorporates temporal
variances in pixel output by capturing 100 frames of data and computing the RMS variations over
the captured frames. Because of the comprehensive nature of the noise analysis and the
additional consideration for RMS variances over time, EMVA 1288 SNR measurements are inherently
lower than the traditional SNR measurements given by manufacturers. However, the
comprehensive nature combined with rigid test parameters, means that all manufacturers are
measuring their products equally and EMVA 1288 tested parameters can be compared among
different manufacturers’ products.
In order to learn more about EMVA 1288, please visit http://www.emva.org
Interface
The SP-5000-USB employs a USB 3.0 interface and is in the process of being certified for
compliance with the USB3 Vision standard. USB3 Vision is a new standard interface for machine
vision applications being developed and managed by the AIA (Automated Imaging Association).
USB3 Vision uses USB 3.0 ports that will soon be standard on most PCs (with Windows 7 service
pack and Windows 8 native support expected soon). Components from different manufacturers
will easily communicate with each other.
USB3 Vision also supports the GenICamTM standard which is managed by the EMVA (European
Machine Vision Association). The purpose of the GenICam standard is to provide a common
program interface for various machine vision cameras. By using GenICam, cameras from different
manufacturers can seamlessly connect in one platform.
The maximum transfer speed of USB 3.0 is specified at 5.0 Gbps, however effective bandwidth is
reduced by a number of factors including pixel format conversions and the physical interface
components used. The USB3 Vision standard specifies a bandwidth of 2.8 Gbps or greater.
Maximum cable length for passive cables is five meters, but this can be made longer using active
cables.
As for the USB connector, SP-5000-USB uses a Micro B connector which complies with USB 3.0. This
connector has an additional 5-pin plug “stacked” on the side of a standard USB 2.0 Micro B
connector. However, USB 2.0 cannot be used with the SP-5000-USB.
Power supply
Although the USB 3.0 interface is capable of supporting both data and power, the power supplied
through the interface is not sufficient to operate the camera. A separate power supply unit must
be connected to the 12-pin connector.
.
Computer used for SP-5000-USB series
It is necessary to use a PC equipped with a USB 3.0 interface. It is also recommended to use a PC
equipped with slots of better than PC Express 2.0 x 8. Please note that the SP-5000-USB may not
work properly depending on the chipset used in the PC.

SP-5000M-USB / SP-5000C-USB
1.
General
The SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB are new Spark Series high performance cameras with high
resolution and a fast frame rate suitable for high speed machine vision applications. The SP5000M-USB is a monochrome progressive scan CMOS camera and the SP-5000C-USB is the
equivalent Bayer mosaic progressive scan CMOS camera. Both are equipped with a CMOS sensor
offering a 1-inch optical format, a resolution of 5.24 million pixels, and a 5:4 aspect ratio. They
provide up to 61.98 frames per second for continuous scanning with 2560 x 2048 full pixel
resolution for both monochrome and raw Bayer output. 8-bit, 10-bit or 12-bit output can be
selected for both monochrome and raw Bayer formats. The new cameras feature a USB3 Vision
interface. A full pixel readout or partial scan readout mode can be selected depending on
applications.
The SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB have various comprehensive functions needed for automated
optical inspection applications, such as solid state device inspection or material surface
inspection. They incorporate video processing functions such as a look-up table, shading
compensation and blemish compensation in addition to fundamental functions such as trigger,
exposure setting and video level control.
As a common Spark Series feature, a new connector for lens control is employed. SP-5000M-USB
and SP-5000C-USB support P-iris and motor-driven lenses as standard lens control capabilities.
Factory options are available to configure this connector to support DC iris systems, as well as
provide a video iris output signal, or to provide additional TTL IN and OUT lines.

5.4 Optical Interface
SP-5000-USB is equipped with opto-isolated inputs and outputs, providing galvanic separation
between the camera’s inputs/outputs and peripheral equipment.
In addition to galvanic separation, the opto-isolated inputs and outputs can cope with a wide
range of voltages; the voltage range for inputs is +3.3V to +24V DC whereas outputs will handle
+5V to +24V DC.
The following drawing is the concept of photo coupler

Pulse Generator
The SP-5000-USB has a frequency divider using the pixel clock as the basic clock and two pulse
generators. In each Pulse Generator, various Clear settings are connected to GPIO.
The following shows Pulse Generator default settings.

Note: When Pulse Generator Repeat Count is set to “0”, the camera is operating in Free Running mode.
However, based on the above default setting, Length=1, Start Point=0 and End Point=1, Pulse Generator stops at
High output. Therefore, if Start Point=0 and End Point=1 are configured, Length should be “2” as the minimum
active width.

SP-5000M-USB / SP-5000C-USB
5.5.1
Clock Pre-scaler
Clock pre-scaler (Divide Value) can set the dividing value of the frequency divider (12-bit
length) and the pixel clock is used for this. Two built-in pulse generators work by the same
clock. In the SP-5000-USB, the pixel clock is 48 MHz.

Pulse Generator Selector
This is where you select one of the pulse generators in order to set or modify its
parameters.

Pulse Generator Length
Set the counter up value (number of clocks, refer to Table 14) for the selected pulse generator.
If Repeat Count value is “0”, and if Pulse Generator Clear signal is not input, the pulse
generator generates the pulse repeatedly until reaching this counter up value.
5.5.4
Pulse Generator Start Point
Set the active output start count value for the selected pulse generator.
However, please note that a maximum 1 clock jitter can occur for the clock which is divided in the
clock pre-scaler.
5.5.5
Pulse Generator End Point
Set the active output ending count value for the selected pulse generator.

SP-5000M-USB / SP-5000C-USB
5.5.6
Pulse Generator Repeat Count
Set the repeating number of the pulse for the selected pulse generator. After Trigger Clear
signal is input, the pulse generator starts the count set in Repeat Count. Accordingly, an
active pulse which has a start point and end point can be output repeatedly.
However, if Repeat Count is set to “0”, it works as a Free-Running counter.
5.5.7
Pulse Generator Clear Activation
Set the clear conditions of the clear count pulse for the selected pulse generator.
5.5.8
Pulse Generator Clear Sync Mode
Set the clear count method for the selected pulse generator. In the case of Async Mode, if the
clear signal is input during the length setting value, the counter will stop counting according to
the clear signal input. In the case of Sync Mode, if the clear signal is input during the length
setting value, the counter will continue to count until the end of the length setting value and
then clear the count. Both modes clear the repeat count when the counter is cleared.

ROI (Region Of Interest) setting
In the SP-5000-USB, a subset of the image can be output by setting Width, Height, Offset-X, and OffsetY. If the height is decreased, the number of lines read out is decreased and as the result, the frame
rate is increased. However, in the horizontal direction, the horizontal frequency is not changed if the
width is decreased. In the SP-5000-USB, the minimum width is “16” and minimum height for SP-5000MUSB is “1” and that for SP-5000C-USB is “2”..

Operating modes
7.1.
Acquisition control
7.1.1 Acquisition Mode
In the SP-5000-USB, the following three acquisition modes are available.
Single frame :
Multi frames :
Continuous :
7.1.1.1
One frame can be output by AcqusitionStart command
The number of frames which is specified in Acquistion Frame Count, are
output by AcquisitionStart command
Images are continuously output by AcquisitionStart command until
AcqusitionStop command is input.
Single Frame operation
In single frame mode, executing the AcquisitionStart command causes one frame to be captured.
After one frame is captured, this operation is automatically stopped.
In order to restart the capture, it is necessary to input the AcquisitionStart command again.
BlockID is not reset until AcquisitionStop is input and is incremented when the AcquisitionStart
command is called.
In the case of PIV operation, 2 frames are captured.
◆ Normal single frame operation
1) AcquisitionStart command is input
2) AcquisitionActive becomes “TRUE” (accepts capture)
3) 1 frame is output
4) AcquisitionActive becomes “FALSE” (stop capturing)
Note: This drawing shows if the trigger is OFF. If the trigger is ON, FrameActive turns to
True at a different AcquisitionActive timing.
◆ Forcing acquisition to stop
While AcquisitionActive is “TRUE”, if AcquisitionStop or AcquisitionAbort is
initiated, AcquisitionActive becomes “FALSE” (stop capturing).
However, if AcqusitionStop command is initiated during image output period,
AcqusitionActive becomes “FALSE” (stop capturing) after image output is completed.
Associated commands:Acqusition Start, Acqusition Stop
- 30 -
SP-5000M-USB / SP-5000C-USB
7.1.1.2
Multi Frame operation
In this mode, the AcquisitionStart command captures the number of frames which are specified by
AcquisitionFrameCount. If PIV mode is used, the number of frames must be set in multiples of 2.
◆ Normal multi-frame operation
1) AcquisitionStart command is input
2) AcquisitionTriggerWait becomes effective
3) AcquisitionActive becomes “TRUE”(accepts capture)
4) Output N frames as specified by AcquisitionFrameCount
5) AcquisitionActive becomes “FALSE”. Then the output stops. (See the following
diagram)

Setting range of AcquisitionFrameCount is; 1≦ AcquisitionFrameCount ≦ 255(0xFF)
Note: This drawing shows if the trigger is OFF. If the trigger is ON, FrameActive turns to
True at a different AcquisitionActive timing.
◆ Forcing acquisition to stop
While AcquisitionActive is “TRUE”, if AcquisitionStop or AcquisitionAbort is
initiated, AcquisitionActive becomes “FALSE” (stop capturing).
Once the operation is set to “FALSE”, the internal FrameCount is reset.
However, if AcqusitionStop command is initiated during image output period,
AcqusitionActive becomes “FALSE” (stop capturing) after image output is completed.
Once, AcqusitionActive becomes “FALSE”, the internal count is reset.

SP-5000M-USB / SP-5000C-USB
7.1.1.3
Continuous
In this mode, when the AcquisitionStart command is set, the image is continuously output at the
current frame rate. This is the default setting for the SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB.
1) AcquisitionStart command is input
2) AcquisitionTriggerWait becomes effective
3) AcquisitionActive becomes “TRUE”
4) Images begin outputting continuously
5) AcquisitionStop command is sent
6) AcquisitionActive becomes “FALSE”. At this moment, the output stops.
However, if AcqusitionStop command is initiated during image output period,
AcqusitionActive becomes “FALSE” (stop capturing) after image output is completed.

SP-5000M-USB / SP-5000C-USB
7.1.4
Acquisition frame rate
With Trigger OFF (free running mode – see section 7.2.1), the default frame rate of the camera is
based on the specified ROI. The smaller the ROI, the faster the default frame rate. However, it is
possible to specify a free-running frame rate (i.e., no trigger needed) that is slower than the
default rate. This can be useful when a longer exposure time is needed for a specific ROI.
Modification of the frame rate is done by entering a value in the AcquisitionFrameRate control
corresponding to the frame frequency. Allowed values range from 126953 Hz to 0.125 Hz for SP5000-USB. However, if the value entered is less than the time required for the default frame rate
of the specified format, the setting is ignored and the default frame rate is used. For example,
the minimum frame period for the smallest possible ROI (1 line) requires 126953 Hz (fps), so any
entry more than 126953 Hz (fps) will always be ignored.
The setting range in Acquisition Frame Rate is:
Shortest
to
Longest
Inverse number of time
required to drive all pixels
in the area set by ROI
command or
to
0.125 Hz (fps) = 8 seconds
inverse number of time
required to transmit one
frame data
For the above setting, Acquisition Frame Rate is used and its unit is Hz (fps).
Acquisition Frame Rate range: 126953 Hz (fps) to 0.125 Hz (fps)
Note: The acquisition frame rate may be limited to the maximum value which will fit
within the USB 3.0 bandwidth.

RCT mode
Until the trigger is input, the camera operates continuously and the video signal for the auto-iris
lens is output, provided the AUX connector has been ordered with a Type 2 configuration option.
At this moment, the video signal, FVAL and LVAL are output but DVAL is not output. When the
trigger is input, the fast dump is activated to read out the electronic charge very quickly, after
which the accumulation and the readout are performed. When the accumulated signal against the
trigger is read out, FVAL, LVAL and DVAL are output too.
Primary settings to use this mode
Exposure Mode: Timed
Trigger Mode: ON
Trigger Option: RCT
In this mode, the setting of Trigger Overlap is invalid.

PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry)
The Particle Image Velocimetry mode can be used in applications where 2 images need to be
taken with a very short time interval. It can only be used with strobe flash as illumination.
The first accumulation time is 10 sec to 2 sec. Then, the second exposure will be taken.
The accumulation is LVAL asynchronous. The first strobe is activated during the first exposure
period and the second strobe is pulsed while the first frame is being read out. In this way, two
strobe flashes generate two video outputs.

Black level control
This function adjusts the setup level.
The adjusting level is 0 to +100LSB at 10-bit output.
8.1.1 Black Level Selector
The following factors can be set.
SP-5000M-USB: DigitalAll
SP-5000C-USB: DigitalAll/DigitalRed/ DigitalBlue
8.1.2 Black Level
The black level can be set in the following range.
SP-5000M-USB: DigitalAll:-256~ +255
SP-5000C-USB: DigitalAll:-256~ +255
DigitalRed/DigitalBlue:-512~ +511
8.2
Gain control
In the SP-5000-USB, the gain control uses Analog Base Gain and Digital Gain.
Analog Base Gain can be set at 0dB, +6dB or +12dB for both SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB. The
digital gain is used for the master gain setting.
For setting the gain,
1. Set analog base gain (Select from 0dB, +6dB and +12dB)
2. Set digital gain
The master gain (DigitalAll) for both monochrome and color can be set x1 (0dB) to x16
(+24dB) against the analog base gain. The resolution for gain setting is x0.01/step which is
0.05dB to 0.08dB, depending on the setting value.
3. In the SP-5000C-USB, blue and red digital gain can be set from x0.45 to x5.62 against the
Master gain setting and its resolution is x0.01/step.
4. In the SP-5000C-USB, analog base gain can be applied to R, G and B channel respectively in
order to cover wider range of color temperature.
Note1: If the gain up function is used, it is recommended to use the analog base gain as
the master gain setting. For instance, if +12dB gain up is required, the analog
base gain is set at +12dB and no digital gain is added. This is because the signalto-noise performance is better with analog gain. However, the AGC function
works only with digital gain.
Additionally, the analog base gain is effective in order to minimize missing counts
in the histogram at higher gain settings. Please note that the analog base gain has
less accuracy due to its variability.
Note2: If the analog base gain is set at 0dB and Digital Gain is used at a high gain setting,
the video level may be unstable and fluctuate approx. 5%. In this case, it is
suggested to set the analog base gain at +6dB or +12dB.
The master gain control uses Digital Gain. All digital gain can be set by x0.01/step. If the digital
gain is set too high, breaks (missing counts) in the histogram may occur.

This is a function to achieve auto white balance by using R and B gain.
There are three methods which can be selected.
OFF:
Once:
Manual operation
The auto white balance is executed one time when this command is
set.
Continuous:
The auto white balance is continuously executed.
AWB Channel Area: AWB reference areas can be selected form 16 (4x4) choices.
Note: The figure for AWB Channel Area is the same as Fig.45.

LUT
This function can be used to convert the input to the desired output characteristics.
The Look-Up Table (LUT) has 256 points for setup. The output level can be created by multiplying
the gain data by the input level.

8.3.2
LUT Index
This represents the “starting” or “input” pixel value to be modified by the Lookup Table. The
SP-5000-GE2 has a 256-point Lookup Table, meaning the index points are treated like an 8-bit
image with 0 representing a full black pixel and 255 representing a full white pixel. The index
points are automatically scaled to fit the internal pixel format of the camera. This is common
for all output configurations.
8.3.3
LUT value
This is the “adjusted” or “output” pixel value for a given LUT index. It has a range of 0 to 4095
(12-bit) and is automatically scaled to the bit depth of the current operating mode (8-bit or 10bit).
Note: linear interpolation is used if needed to calculate LUT values between index points. In the
color mode, the LUT function works the same regardless of the color of the pixel.

Shading Correction
This function compensates for shading (non-uniformity) caused by the lens or the light source
used. This compensation can be performed even if shading issues are not symmetrical in
horizontal and/or vertical directions.
There are two methods of correction.
Flat shading correction:
The method to compensate the shading is to measure the highest luminance level in the
image and use that data as the reference. Luminance levels of other areas are then
adjusted so that the level of the entire area is equal. Compensation is performed using a
block grid of 20 blocks (H) x 16 blocks (V). Each block contains 128 x 128 pixels. The
complementary process is applied to produce the compensation data with less error.

Color shading correction (For SP-5000C-USB only):
In this case, R channel and B channel are adjusted to match with G channel
characteristics. The block grid for compensation is 20 blocks (H) x 16 blocks (V). Each
block contains 128 x 128 pixels and the complementary process is applied to produce the
compensation data with less error.

Note: Under the following conditions, the shading correction circuit may not work
properly.
 If there is some area in the image with a video level less than 70%
 If part of the image or the entire image is saturated
 If the highest video level in the image is less than 300LSB (at 10-bit output)
8.6.
Blemish compensation
The SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB have a blemish compensation circuit. This function
compensates blemishes on the CMOS sensor (typically pixels with extremely high response or
extremely low response). This applies to both monochrome and color versions. Pixels that fulfill
the blemish criteria can be compensated by adjacent pixel in left column and, in the case of the
SP-5000C-USB, the defective pixel can be compensated by the same Bayer color pixel in left
adjacent column. Please refer to the following drawing. As for white blemishes, the automatic
detection function is available and after its execution, the data is stored in memory. The customer
can use the data by setting the blemish compensation ON. For black blemishes, only compensation
that has been done in the factory is available. The number of pixels that can be compensated is
up to 512 pixels.

Lens control
The SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB can be used with 4 different types of auto iris lenses, in
addition to standard lenses with manual iris control. If an auto iris function is to be utilized, the
lens type used must be selected in Lens Select.

About P-Iris
New Spark Series SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB come equipped with P-Iris control as part of the
standard lens control function. The P-Iris system is a newly developed lens control method
designed to control the iris more precisely. Especially for video cameras in surveillance
applications utilizing megapixel CCD or CMOS imagers, it becomes a very important factor to
control an iris in order to achieve the maximum camera performance. In surveillance applications,
depending on shooting conditions, resolution and depth of field are important factors. The iris is
deeply related with these factors. If the iris diaphragm is smaller, but not too small, resolution
gets better and the depth of field is also deeper. The P-Iris system controls the iris diaphragm
precisely and maintains the best image with the highest resolution and depth of field. P-Iris can
also combine with gain and electronic shutter to keep the appropriate iris position under changing
lighting conditions (ALC function).

Setting for P-iris lens being used
P-iris lenses use an absolute setting value control system and therefore, if the following
parameters are input, precise iris position control is possible.
8.7.2.1
P-Iris lens select
Select the lens used from the P-iris select list. At this moment, there are no 1-inch P-Iris lenses
available in the list. When P-Iris Lens Select is opened, the following lenses are indicated but they
are 2/3 inch format. If they are used, the corners of the image may be vignetted.

2) When the lens is selected in P-Iris Lens Select
3) If the lens is changed in P-iris Lens Select
8.7.2.4
Current F value
The current F value is indicated by using iris position information. This can be indicated during
auto iris operation. The relation between iris position and F value depends on the lens used.
8.7.2.5
P-Iris Auto min. / P-Iris Auto max.
This function can set the control range when the iris is operated automatically. Auto max. sets the
limit when the iris goes open and Auto min. sets the limit when the iris goes closed. Auto max. can
be set to fully open but Auto min. is stopped at F5.6 as lens performance typically degrades if the
iris is closed beyond this point.
8.7.3
Motorized lenses
The SP-5000C-USB and SP-5000C-USB can use the 3-axis motorized lens control for zoom, focus
and iris. The following functions are available via the motorized lens commands.

ALC
In the SP-5000M-USB and SP-5000C-USB, auto gain, auto shutter and auto iris functions can be
combined to provide a wide ranging automatic exposure control from dark to bright or vice versa.
The functions are applied in the sequence shown below and if one function is disabled, the linkage
between the other two is maintained.
In order to make the ALC function effective, set the Auto Iris Lens Control Signal Output to “ON”.
The auto iris function (AIC) works together with AGC and Exposure Auto (ASC).

HDR (High Dynamic Range) (SP-5000M-USB only)
HDR sensing mode can be set when HDR Mode is set to ON while Exposure Mode is Timed.
The parameters to configure dynamic range are HDR_SLOPE Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 and
Level 4.
The user can select any one of those parameters as required for their application.
In this mode, the timed exposure is used as the reference and the value selected in
HDR_SLOPE will compensate to get an appropriate dynamic range by changing the exposure
time.
Notes:
1. If the exposure mode is OFF and the HDR mode is set to ON, the exposure mode is
automatically changed to Timed.
2. If horizontal binning and/or vertical binning are set to ON, the HDR mode cannot be set.
In this case, the HDR mode must be set first before H-Binning and/or V-Binning are set.
3. In this mode, exposure overlapped behavior is not available and the frame rate is slower
than the normal operation.
4. The exposure time value is fixed at the value when HDR Mode is activated. When the
exposure time is changed, HDR Mode should be off. Once the exposure time is changed, the
HDR Mode can be set to ON again.
5. In this mode, Exposure Auto function is disabled.

Appendix
1. Precautions
Personnel not trained in dealing with similar electronic devices should not service this camera.
The camera contains components sensitive to electrostatic discharge. The handling of these
devices should follow the requirements of electrostatic sensitive components.
Do not attempt to disassemble this camera.
Do not expose this camera to rain or moisture.
Do not face this camera towards the sun, extreme bright light or light reflecting objects.
When this camera is not in use, put the supplied lens cap on the lens mount.
Handle this camera with the maximum care.
Operate this camera only from the type of power source indicated on the camera.
Power off the camera during any modification such as changes of jumper and switch setting.
2. Typical Sensor Characteristics
The following effects may be observed on the video monitor screen. They do not indicate any
fault of the camera, but are associated with typical sensor characteristics.
V. Aliasing
When the CMOS camera captures stripes, straight lines or similar sharp patterns, jagged edges
may appear on the monitor.
Blemishes
All cameras are shipped without visible image sensor blemishes.
Over time some pixel defects can occur. This does not have a practical effect on the
operation of the camera. These will show up as white spots (blemishes).
Exposure to cosmic rays can cause blemishes to appear on the image sensor. Please take care
to avoid exposure to cosmic rays during transportation and storage. It is recommended using
sea shipment instead of air flight in order to limit the influence of cosmic rays on the camera.
Pixel defects/blemishes also may emerge due to prolonged operation at elevated ambient
temperature, due to high gain setting, or during long time exposure. It is therefore
recommended to operate the camera within its specifications.
Patterned Noise
When the sensor captures a dark object at high temperature or is used for long time
integration, fixed pattern noise may appear on the video monitor screen.
3. Caution when mounting a lens on the camera
When mounting a lens on the camera dust particles in the air may settle on the surface of the lens
or the image sensor of the camera. It is therefore important to keep the protective caps on the
lens and on the camera until the lens is mounted. Point the lens mount of the camera downward
to prevent dust particles from landing on the optical surfaces of the camera. This work should be
done in a dust free environment. Do not touch any of the optical surfaces of the camera or the
lens.
