WARNING
Observe the power supply rating
Use this camera with the voltage indicated in the specifications of this
manual. Using a different voltage can damage the camera and lead to fire
or electric shock.
Do not damage cables
Do not allow cables to be damaged such as by placing heavy objects on
top of it or by bending it with force. Using damaged cables can lead to fire
or electric shock.
Do not insert a foreign substance into the camera
Do not allow foreign objects such as combustible substances, metal
objects, or water to get inside the device. They can damage the camera
and lead to fire or electric shock.
Do not attempt to dismantle or modify the camera
Touching high voltage parts in the camera can damage the camera and
lead to accidents. Only touch parts as indicated in this manual.
Use the supplied power cord
Always use the AC adapter supplied with the camera when using the
camera.
Do not connect or disconnect the power plug with wet hands. Such acts
can lead to electric shock.
If an abnormality occurs
If the camera suddenly fails to display images or emits strange noise,
odor, or smoke; turn off the camera immediately, disconnect the power
plug, and contact a Hamamatsu subsidiary or local distributor. Never
attempt to repair the camera yourself.

4. OVERVIEW
The C10000-801 utilizes TDI (Time Delay Integration) technology, enabling high sensitivity
and large field imaging with high resolution at high speeds. It is equipped with a bidirectional
TDI readout CCD. The camera has 2 tap output modes (1024 pixels for each).
5. FEATURES
(1) High resolution
Equipped with a high-resolution 2048 (horizontal) × 128 (vertical) pixel CCD.
(2) High sensitivity
The signal from 128 lines is integrated in TDI operation, realizing high sensitivity.
(3) Operation mode control
The numerous operation modes available in this camera can be controlled with
commands via the serial line in the Camera Link.
(4) Digital output
Image signals are converted from analog to digital in the camera and output as 12 bit or
8 bit data. This camera complies with the base configuration 12 bit and 8 bit digital
camera standard of the Camera Link interface.
(5) Real-time shading correction
In conventional camera output, the inconsistency in background and sensitivity
inherent to CCD sensors caused shading, which
appeared in images. However, the TDI function of this camera is internally equipped
with an image processing feature for background subtraction and shading correction,
which used to be processed by software. This has made real-time processing and
high-quality image output possible. As a result, the load on software has been reduced,
improving the processing performance of the camera and software as a whole.
(6) Low graphic distortion
There is almost no graphical distortion, as pixels are lined geometrically.
(7) Lens mount
F-mount is standard.

8. OPERATION
8-1
PRECAUTIONS
(1) Starting the control software
Start the control software a few seconds after turning on the camera’s power switch.
The camera may not operate properly if it receives a command immediately after it
starts. If the camera does not operate properly, close the control software immediately,
and restart the camera.
(2) Protection circuit
The camera is protected from overheating with a protection circuit.
Even when the fan is disabled, if the temperature rises abnormally, the protection
circuit will drive the fan. If the protection circuit is activated, turn off the power
immediately, eliminate the root cause of the heating problem, and then turn the power
back on.
8-2

9. IMAGE ACQUISITION
9-1
OVERVIEW
This camera acquires images by the TDI imaging method. The movement of the object has
to be synchronized with the CCD charge transfer speed. This CCD can also operate as a
normal full-frame transfer CCD (area imaging mode). We recommend that you use this
mode to adjust the position and focus before switching to the TDI mode. You can use
commands to switch the operation mode.
Note
9-2
•
For details on commands, see chapter 10, “ EXTERNAL CONTROL
COMMANDS.”
EXPOSURE AND READOUT CONTROL
(1) Area imaging mode [AMD N]
Exposure and readout are repeated through internal microprocessor control.
You can set the following parameters using commands.
Exposure time
Integer multiple of the exposure time of one line
(256 to 50 200)
Digital output bits
12 bits or 8 bits
The exposure time of one line is 20 µs.
Note
•
Smear may be visible when the camera is operated in the area imaging mode
since the camera is equipped with a full-frame transfer TDI CCD chip. Shorter
the exposure time, the stronger the smear. This camera is specially designed
for high speed TDI imaging; image quality in area imaging mode is not
guaranteed.
(2) TDI mode [AMD T]
The TDI line is shifted in sync with the internal signal or external control signal.
The TDI line data is transmitted in sync with the LVAL signal of Camera Link.
You can set the following parameters using commands.
TDI line shift signal
Internal signal or external control signal
External control signal polarity
Negative or positive
External control signal type
EXT.TRIG., Camera Link CC1
Digital output bits
12 bits or 8 bits
Use the TMD command to switch the TDI line shift control signal between internal
signals and external control signal. The following are the timing diagrams of each TMD
mode.
① TMD I
External control signal
LVAL
The camera outputs LVAL on the basis of its own internal signal, independent of the
external control signal.
Use the HLN command to set the internally generated signal's TDI line shift frequency.
12
C10000-801 Ver.1.1
② TMD E
External control signal
LVAL
The camera outputs LVAL in sync with the external control signal.
③ TMD S
Switches to TMD I
External control signal
LVAL
TMD I mode starts after an external control signal is received.

EXTERNAL CONTROL SIGNAL POLARITY SETTING
You can use a command to set the external control signal polarity to N (negative; falling
edge) or P (positive; rising edge).

EXPOSURE TIME
The definition of exposure time is different in TDI mode from area imaging mode.
9-6-1
AREA IMAGING MODE [AMD N]
The camera alternates between exposure and readout according to the internal setting. Because
the CCD is a full-frame transfer type, the readout time is contained in the exposure time. The
exposure time can vary anywhere from 5.12 ms to 1004 ms in units of 20 µs.

11. PRECAUTIONS WHEN USING THE CCD
The CCD used in the camera has the following characteristics. Take these characteristics
into consideration when you use the camera.
(1) White spot
Subjecting the CCD to extended exposures may result in white spots due to a defect in
the silicon wafer. This phenomenon is currently not preventable. Cosmic rays may also
cause white spots.
(2) Smear
Smear is a group of vertical streaks that appears when a very bright subject is imaged.
On this camera, the amount of smear increases as the exposure time is decreased in
area imaging mode.
(3) Aliasing
Due to the inherent characteristics of the CCD, rough-edged flicker may be visible
when stripe patterns, lines, and so forth are imaged.
(4) Interference fringes
Coherent light such as LASER light may generate interference fringes on images.
(5) Excessive light
CAUTION
28
•
Be careful not to apply high-energy light, such as laser light, to the CCD,
because the CCD may be damaged.

This value is the measured value in TDI mode. To find this value, the CCD was placed in a dark environment, and
two images were taken in this condition. The two images were subtracted from each other, and the standard
deviation of the difference was found. Then, the result was divided by the square root of 2 and multiplied by the
conversion coefficient.
The amp gain conversion coefficient is the coefficient used to convert the count value of the measured image to
electrons. Before making this conversion, be sure to carry out dark subtraction.
This is the value when the contrast enhancement gain is set to zero.

The Camera Link interface is a digital interface standard that was developed by digital
camera and frame grabber manufacturers in order to consolidate the numerous original
standards that had been in use. The interface transfers 28-bit digital data (TX0 to TX27) that
is converted into serial data over only five signal lines (X0, X1, X2, X3, and XCLK).
This camera complies with the base configuration 12 bit and 8 bit digital camera standard of
the Camera Link interface.
