1. Introduction

1.1 General Description

The UP-610/UP-610CL is a 10-bit, 659 x 494 full frame resolution digital CCD camera using progressive scanning interline-transfer technology. The square pixels are especially suitable for processing, measuring, and analyzing tasks. High speed moving objects can easily be captured with the external asynchronous capture control. This compact and lightweight camera offers excellent signal to noise performance. It’s compatible with most popular frame grabbers in the market. The “user-friendly” RS-232C interface control allows users to control all camera functions without physically touching the camera.

2. Camera Setup

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

610/UP-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.

Figure 1. Camera and Frame Grabber System Setup

3. Camera Functions

3.1 12-Pin Connector

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. For HD (pin 6) and VD (pin 7) inputs, TTL signals are required (see section

6.6 for details). For asynchronous capture

(VINT) applications, refer to section 6 for details. For RS-232C interface control via this

12-pin connector, use pin # 10 and #12.

Shutter speed dial switch is located on the rear panel and there are 16 different positions. To 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.

4. RS-232C Communication Control

4.1 Hyper Terminal Program

UNIQ does not provide its own software program for RS-232C communication. In order to use RS-

232C interface, a Hyper Terminal software program must be installed and applied. The following shows how to run and use of Hyper Terminal.

Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP

How do I run Hyper Terminal?

1. Click Start / Programs / Accessories

2. Within accessories double click Hyper Terminal (If you do not see Hyper terminal click the communications folder and then click Hyper Terminal). If you are unable to locate Hyper Terminal it may not be installed see next question.

How do I uninstall / reinstall / install Hyper Terminal?

1. Click Start / Settings / Control Panel and double click Add Remove Programs.

2. Within Add Remove Programs click the Windows Setup tab.

3. Double click the communications icon.

4. And check or uncheck the Hyper Terminal section depending if you want Hyper

Terminal to be installed or uninstalled, if you want to reinstall Hyper Terminal

uncheck and then click ok and then repeat the above process and re-check Hyper

Terminal.

For first time user of Hyper Terminal, go to Properties,

Select 9600 bits per second in Configure…

Enable “Echo typed characters locally” box in ASCII setup…

6.6 External Synchronization and Gen-lock

(via Camera Link interface ONLY)

The UP-610/UP-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. a) HD

6.7 Integration

(via 12-pin Hirose connector ONLY)

The UP-610/UP-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 UP-610/UP-610CL camera. There are a variety of C-mount lenses in the market that works with UP-610/UP-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 Digital Connector and Cable

7.3.1 40-pin Digital Connector and Cable

UNIQ stocks standard and custom cables for customer's convenience. These are high quality and flexible twisted paired, overall shielded cables. Contact UNIQ for more details.

The mating cable plug connector and back shell kits are made by AMP.

8. Camera Malfunction

WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN THE CAMERA HOUSING IN ANY CASE WITHOUT

CONSENTING THE FACTORY.

Camera malfunction rarely happens. In case camera malfunctions, the following troubleshooting procedures would help to minimize the problem; it definitely helps the user to find out the actual problem and may save a trip for sending the camera back to the factory. a) First of all, unplug the power supply and disconnect the 12-pin Hirose power connector and any attached cable(s) from the camera unit. Make sure there is nothing connected to the camera at this time. b) Close all necessary frame grabber software files on the computer. c) Check the 12V DC power supply at the 12-pin connector cable and make sure it does provide the correct voltage to the 12-pin connector. If it does not, replace a good power supply and proceed the following steps. d) Make sure to set the camera shutter dial switch and mode switches at the correct position (refer to section 4, timing signals, for details.) e) Now, power up the camera with frame grabber cable(s) connected to the camera and the frame grabber. Click on UP-610/UP-610CL configuration file from the frame grabber's configuration file list. If all the above camera and frame grabber setup procedures are done correctly, a good image should be appeared on a display monitor. f) If it fails to show any good images, check the interface cable pinouts, both camera and frame grabber end, consult UNIQ or frame grabber manufacturer if necessary. Also, make sure the UP-

610/UP-610CL camera configuration file is correct. g) If problem still exits, contact UNIQ or frame grabber manufacturer for further assistance. h) If live video does exit but it's not good or clean, check frame grabber configuration file settings or contact UNIQ or frame grabber manufacturer for assistance. i) " I do get the video but it's too dark." Make sure the lens is wide open and shutter speed dial switch is at "no" shutter or "low speed" shutter.

J) Point the camera at a bright scene without a lens on, a blank or bright display should be seen on a display monitor. Covering the CCD camera with hand or lens cap should see a dark video. If no video occurs, most likely the CCD camera is damaged, assuming that all setup procedures were done correctly above. Consult camera technical support at the factory. k) If there is a good video but it is not clean or bad, it is possible that the CCD imager glass is dirty, or the CCD camera could be partially damaged. Use high-pressure air to blow the dirt away on the CCD protective glass surface if the CCD glass is not clean. If the problem still exists, contact the UNIQ technical support for help.

16

l) If there is a good video but the RS232C communication fails, or if the camera does not respond after sending a command, make sure to check the following. i) Go to Hyper Terminal program

Click File and click Properties

Click Settings tab

Click ASCII Setup…

In ASCII Sending section, check Echo typed characters locally but uncheck Send line

ends with line feeds

ii) If RS-232C is via 9-pin D-sub connector at PC end, make sure to short or connect pin # 4

and #6, and then short or connect pin # 7 and #8, but do not connect all 4 pins

together.
