Usage Precautions
Notes on cable configurations
The presence of lighting equipment and television receivers nearby may result in video and audio
noise. In such cases, change the cable configurations or placement.
Notes on Camera Link cable connections
Secure the locking screws on the connector manually, and do not
use a driver. Do not secure the screws too tightly. Doing so may
wear down the screw threads on the camera. (Tightening torque:
0.291±0.049 N·m or less)
Secure manually.
Do not secure too tightly.
Notes on attaching the lens
Avoiding dust particles
When attaching the lens to the camera, stray dust and other particles may adhere to the sensor
surface and rear surface of the lens. Be careful of the following when attaching the lens.
• Work in a clean environment.
• Do not remove the caps from the camera and lens until immediately before you attach the lens.
• To prevent dust from adhering to surfaces, point the camera and lens downward and do not allow the
lens surface to come into contact with your hands or other objects.
• Always use a blower brush to remove any dust that adheres.
Never use your hands or cloth, blow with your mouth, or use other methods to remove dust.
Phenomena specific to CMOS image sensors
The following phenomena are known to occur on cameras equipped with CMOS image sensors. These
do not indicate malfunctions.
• Aliasing
When shooting straight lines, stripes, and similar patterns, vertical aliasing (zigzag distortion) may
appear on the monitor.
• Blooming
When strong light enters the camera, some pixels on the CMOS image sensor may receive much
more light than they are designed to hold, causing the accumulated signal charge to overflow into
surrounding pixels.
This “blooming” phenomenon can be seen in the image, but does not affect the operation of the
camera.
• Fixed pattern noise
When shooting dark objects in high-temperature conditions, fixed pattern noise may occur
throughout the entire video monitor screen.
• Defective pixels
Defective pixels (white and black pixels) of the CMOS image sensor are minimized at the factory
according to shipping standards. However, as this phenomenon can be affected by the ambient
temperature, camera settings (e.g., high sensitivity and long exposure), and other factors, be sure to
operate within the camera's specified operating environment.
Notes on exportation
When exporting this product, please follow the export regulations of your country or region.

Features
The SW-4000M-PMCL is a line scan camera equipped with a 4096-pixel CMOS linear sensor.
The camera has a Camera Link clock of 84.82 MHz and is capable of high-speed scanning at up to
199.5 kHz (Line Rate). 8-bit and 10-bit video output is possible via Camera Link.
Camera and external trigger settings are configured via the Camera Link interface or the 12-pin
connector.
Camera Link compatible interface
• Video outputs can be used as trigger inputs.
Output formats
You can choose from 8-bit, and 10-bit output.
Variety of pre-process functions
• Variable pixel size
The pixel size can be changed by switching between the 7.5 × 7.5 µm (default) and 7.5 × 10.5 µm
operation modes.
• LUT (Lookup Table)
Programmable control over gamma and contrast is possible.
• Gamma correction
Gamma can be set to 1.0, 0.9, 0.8, 0.75, 0.65, 0.6, 0.55, 0.5, or 0.45.
• Shading correction (flat field)
Non-uniformity (i.e., shading) in the amount of light generated by the lens and lighting equipment can
be corrected.
• Variable line rate
By varying the line rate, the scanning speed of the camera can be matched to the feeding speed of
the object, and the accumulation time can be lengthened to increase sensitivity.

output from the camera to the system, such as those used for lighting equipment control.
Signals are selected as follows.
• When using external signals or the signals of each GPIO module as trigger signals:
Select in [Trigger Selector] > [Trigger Source].
• When selecting the signals to use for external outputs:
Select in [Line Selector] > [Line Source].
Camera Output Formats
The SW-4000M-PMCL supports a variety of output formats.
The supported tap geometries are as follows.
The tap geometry settings on the camera side and the frame grabber board side must match. For
details on frame grabber board settings, refer to the instruction manual of the board.

■ Auto line rate configuration function
You can automatically configure the optimal line rate when you want to prioritize sensitivity.
• Supported operation modes: When Trigger Mode OFF, Exposure Mode OFF.
 You can also save the setting and have it applied whenever the power is subsequently turned on. For details on
saving the setting, see “Step 7: Saving the Settings” (page 17) .
Electronic Shutter
When you use this function, you can set the exposure to a preconfigured accumulation time, regardless
of the line rate.
• Variable range: 1.8 µs to 15.148 ms
• Variable unit: 1.0 µs (1clk)
• Supported operation modes: When Trigger Mode ON, Exposure Mode Timed
 Actual exposure time is the value set in [Exposure Time] minus 1.2µs.
Caution
In “Trigger Mode OFF, Exposure Mode Timed” mode, the line rate configured will be the maximum value at which
the shutter operates. However, in “Trigger Mode ON, Exposure Mode Timed” mode, the input trigger period will be
the maximum value.
 You can also save the setting and have it applied whenever the power is subsequently turned on, but this
requires addition operations.
 Switching and settings changing and storage for this function is performed via serial communication.

Troubleshooting
Check the following before requesting help. If the problem persists, contact your local JAI distributor.
■ Power supply and connections
Problem
The POWER/TRIG LED remains lit amber and
does not turn green, even after power is
supplied to the camera.
Cause and solution
• A drop in voltage may have occurred due to the length of
the power cable. Check whether input voltage specification
for the camera is being met.
• Check that the sufficient power is being provided at the
power supply in regards to the camera’s power usage.
• Check the power cable connection.
■ Image display
Problem
Gradation in dark areas is not noticeable.
Cause and solution
Use the gamma function to correct the display. As the lightemitting properties of the monitor are not linear, the entire
image may be darker or the gradation in the dark areas may
be less noticeable when camera outputs are displayed
without processing. Using the gamma function performs
correction to produce a display that is close to linear. For
details, see “LUT (Lookup Table) / Gamma Function”
(page 32).
■ Settings and operations
Problem
I want to restore the factory default settings.
