2.5 Installation

1) Install camera in the desired location. You can use the ¼ “ tripot adapter or use the 4 M3 holes in the adapter of the camera.

2) Connect the power supply . If you have ordered a P/S connect it to the 3 Pin connector on the camera. If you use your own power supply ( must be 12 V DC) make sure you connect it to Pin1

( +12 V) and Pin 3 ( GND). If you – by mistake- supply line with GND pin the camera can

be damaged !

If power supply was ordered, do not modify it.

Connect a Camera Link cable to your frame grabber. Please note that cable length should not exceed 10 m for theses camera (“F” version). A REPEATER is available to extend cable length.

Consult your local distributor!

2.6 Available Modes

of Operation

General:

All modes are set by the serial interface which connects via Camera Link standard cable

.

The default factory setting is Freerunning using the internal microcontroller for exposure control

: Mode 0. The Gain of the signal can be adjusted software wise by a factor of 2 . Please note that noise also is amplified. Higher Gain is possible but not specified !

The Gain default setting is 1.0.

Mode 0: Freerunning using Microcontroller

In this mode the camera creates all sync signals itself. The frame rate is ca. 16 and there is no need to trigger the camera ( by EXSYNC) in order to get data. The Exposure time can be set

by using the serial Interface of the PC.

The enclosed program allows the user to set the values from about 10.000 /Sec (1 line duration) to one frame duration.

Exposure time can be changed online during operation.

Mode 1: Triggered and using Pulse width of Exsync

In this mode the camera is waiting for an external trigger which causes the integration and read out. The exposure time can be varied by the length of EXSYNC between the high going edge and the low going edge. The Time settings in the control menu are not activated. This mode is useful in applications where the light level of the scene changes during operation. A frame to frame variation is allowed. Trigger can be fed via Framegrabber ( if supported) or by TTL into on

TB 5 connector (see 2.3)

Mode 2: Triggered and using Microcontroller

The frame rate is determined by the number of Exsync pulses per time. With each positive transition (going high) the camera will readout a frame. The Exposure time is set as mentioned in

Mode 0. The maximum exposure time is 65535 line durations, Minimum is 1 line duration.

Trigger can be fed via Frame grabber ( if supported) or by TTL into on TB 5 connector (see 2.3)

( see 2.3)

Exposure time can be changed online during operation.

Software:

The camera comes with “Convenient Cam” program allowing interactive access to above parameters. This software is available for WIN XP and WIN 2000 .

The color version will come on request with free software algorithm which will allow processing of the color image in the PC. This must to be done in order to interpolate the colors for each pixel. Please note that no responsibility can be taken for the algorithm. It might be necessary to change the algorithm according to the application. See chapter 3.7 .

Users Manual Area Scan Cameras SVS424/204/285/2020/4021 Page 7

3.0 Operation

An easy logic allows control of the camera by different signals to achieve optimum image quality.

3.1 Sensors :

Sony: ICX 424, ICX204, ICX285

Kodak KAI 2020M/C 1600 x 1200 Pixel

Kodak KAI 4021M/C 2048 x 2048

Pixel

Note following cosmetic specs for Kodak CCD:

Cluster allowed. Cluster may contain up to 10 pixel out of PRNU spec.

8 cluster allowed

Point defects: 10 dead pixel allowed.

More details are available in the KAI 2020AND 4021 spec sheet.

Spectral range: 400 - 900 nm(B/W), COLOR version: RGB Bayer Mosaic Filter, see 3.7

3.1.2

Readout from CCD/SVS2020 and 4021 only

The output for the “U “ and “F” version is as follows:

2 taps are read out and the right half of the image is mirrored starting at 1 st

line pixel #1025 through 2048 ( 4021). See image below. As a result either framegrabber or PC memory must reverse the 2 nd

half in order to get a complete image as it is for the “S” version.

There the complete image is read out as usual with one tap CCD.

2 Tap output “F” and “U” version 1 Tap output “S” version

Users Manual Area Scan Cameras SVS424/204/285/2020/4021

3.2 Signal conditioning

Page 8

The analog output of the sensor is conditioned by Correlated Double Sampling (CDS) for optimum S/N ratio.Dark level drift is compensated by an “auto zero” amplifier circuit and fed into a video ADC with 10 bit resolution.

3.3 Interfacing/ use of the “ convenient cam “ program

The camera can be operated in a free running mode as well as in a synchronized and triggered mode. An exposure control can be set by serial communication or by using the pulse width of the trigger signal (Exsync).

For PC support a software disk, “Convenient Cam ”, is enclosed which allows setting of parameters via a serial port. For OEMs the source code is available on request. A DLL is delivered with the program and is required to get the “Convenient Cam ” program working.

See screen shot of the menu at the end of this section!

The camera can also be operated with any terminal program. See “Command Overview.doc”

If you have installed the camera and connected power, you can install the program to do the first test. Copy the ConvCam.exe and the DLL to your disk drive, double click on the Convenient

Cam icon and a window will open. The program will fail to start if it can’t find the DLL! Check

the Readme file and Load DLL in ConvCam menu.

If you get error messages starting the software make sure that your camera is connected to the chosen port (usually com 3,4,5,6, …...due to Camera Link standard).

You can change the port with the “COM:”-field if the Camera Link will not work immediately.

The “ read status” button will cause the camera to respond and give the following information:

The type of sensor at INFO series number and at Mode operation mode will be displayed.

The “Mode” field

Free Running, Mode 0

At the first installation it should be mode 0 (factory default). This means the camera is free running with maximum frame rate and exposure time is controlled by the internal micro controller. Exposure time can be set via serial communication (ConvCam2.exe, see “Exposure time”-field below). No further external signals.

Triggered, external exposure control, Mode 1

If you want to trigger the camera and determine the exposure time by the pulse width of

Exsync, choose mode 1.

Then apply a Exsync signal at the appropriate pins e.g. on pins of TB 5 connector or via

Camera Link through you frame grabber. (Contact your frame grabber supplier for how to feed signal into the grabber). (See “Trigger”-buttons below). With the rising edge of the pulse the camera will start exposure time. The exposure time ends with the falling edge of Exsync.

Please check the timing diagram in the appendix of this manual.

Triggered, internal exposure control, Mode 2

If you want to trigger the camera and use the convenient exposure time control of the micro controller then use mode 2. You still can use the serial port for setting exposure time (see

“Exposure time”-field below). However you need to use the Exsync signal in order to trigger the camera (see “Trigger”-buttons below).

Users Manual Area Scan Cameras SVS424/204/285/2020/4021 Page 9

The “Binning” field: readout modes

You can choose different resolutions

No Binning: Full resolution: horizontal x 1, vertical x 1 (default setting)

H2x V2x: Vertical 2x and Horizontal 2x at the same time:

Resolution: horizontal x ½ , vertical x ½ ,

Sensitivity is 4x, pixel frequency is halved, max. frame rate is almost doubled .

“No Binning”

sets the camera to full resolution

If you need other binning mode configurations consult factory or your nearest distributor. Using

binning with a color version of the camera will cause incorrect colors and strange effects

!!

However, for fast focusing it might be useful.

Note that you probably have to change camera file of your frame grabber if you change operation mode !

The Partial Scan field:

Partial scan of lines can be chosen in steps of 16 lines (19 lines SVS4021). As an example for

SVS4021: The minimum number and starting point are 17 lines. The max. number is 2031. As a result the frame rate of the camera will be increased when resolution is lower. e.g. 2048 x 1024 yields 29 fps. Partial scan is done starting in center of the imager.

If you need other readout mode configurations consult the factory or your nearest distributor.

Note that you probably have to change camera file of your frame grabber if you change resolution !

The “Options” field

The “ Trigger” functions

Here you can determine if you want to use the differential LVDS trigger via frame grabber and the CAMERA LINK cable or if you would rather use the TTL ( min 5 V) trigger on the TB 5 connector on the Camera. The latter is sometimes easier if a TTL signal is provided from encoder, flashlight or any other source.

internal clock

Default clock source. On board camera clock can be configured with full speed/ reduced speed option.

“Load camera DLL”

Depending on the type of frame grabber it is sometimes necessary to get the ConvCam program working only if the DLL is activated. For this purpose simply click on this option if you don’t get communication with the camera.

“Reduced speed”/”Full speed

Here you can lower the clk speed and as result the frame rate: If you tick reduced speed the frame rate is only about half than the initial one. This is only intended to be used if PCI bus

load for the framegrabber must be reduced.

Users Manual Area Scan Cameras SVS424/204/285/2020/4021 Page 10

The “camera “folder

The ”Exposure time “ field

Exposure time: the exposure time can be set in µsec. The min exposure time is about 50 µsec

(depending on the camera type and speed). The longest is about several seconds (triggered modes). Due to the internal timing of the camera the program will adjust the values to the appropriate values. Exposure time can also be expressed as “line time” because the minimum time set is the duration of one line. If you use this field the exposure time in µsec will change automatically and vice versa.

The “Gain” and “Offset“ field

The default gain setting is “1.0”. You may change the gain up to factor 2.0 (or higher) in steps of

1/10 th

. Note that the dark offset will increase and dynamic range will not be improved! For good image quality do not increase gain more than factor 2, because the noise is also amplified.

“Gain value” allows finer adjustments than “gain factor”.

“U” and “F” version of SVS 2020 and 4021 only :

Note that the CCD has 2 outputs. Therefore there are a “right” and a “left” image half. If you use the slider both channels are amplified. However depending on the amplifications there might be different values necessary in order to make both channels equal. Fine tuning in “Gain Value” is necessary.

There are about 768 possible steps to adjust. It is still possible to have 1-2 counts differnce between both image halfs. This is NOT a camera problem and must be adjusted by an experienced user. Same is true for the offset.

Dark level offset adjustment is possible. Please note that factory adjustment is optimized for S/N ratio and sensitivity. You may lose dynamic range. Alter only if you operate at high temperatures like +40 °C. It can be altered for each channel separately.

The “Save to EEPROM” button

If you have configured your camera successfully you can save the actual configuration in the

EEPROM of the micro controller. Every time the camera is connected to power it will start with this configuration. Ensure that your camera is running correctly before you click this button!

The “Reset Camera” button

If you have troubles during configuration, you can set the last saved configuration clicking this button (you could also switch power off and on and also and click on “read status” again).

The “ COM Port”:

Set COM port for serial control which will work with your frame grabber via Camera Link.

The “RS232 and Camera Link” Box

Set always to “Camera Link” for communication via Frame grabber. If you set to “RS232 Port”,

communication via Frame grabber will usually NOT work ! It is intended for LVDS type of cameras.

3.7. Comments on camera temperature

Higher case temperature is noticed for SVS4020 and SVS4021 version.

There is no need to worry because camera has been tested at higher temperature than specified

( 40 °C). However some components inside like CCD, ADC, drivers are pushed to their limits.

In order to take advantage of the speed of the “U” ( Ultra High Speed” version) it must be operated with forced air cooling. It means a gentle airflow not causing vibrations ! This will help to extend life time of the camera

Note that Warranty will be void if you don’t follow these instruction for “U” version !

3.8 Comments on COLOR Version

If you have purchased a COLOR version of this camera, please note the following:

In all electrical terms the camera is identical to the black and white versions. The output is parallel or Camera Link but the color pixels are transferred in series from the camera.

The camera uses a CCD which has a color mosaic filter. This filter is called "Bayer" filter named after the person who invented it. It has a pattern on the lines which alternates as follows:

E.g.:First line: RGRGRG.... and so on. ( R=RED, B=BLUE, G=GREEN )

Second line: GBGBGB.... and so on.

Please note that about half of the pixels are green, a quarter red and a quarter blue.

This is due to the maximum sensitivity of the human eye at about 550 nm ( green).

Because this camera is a single chip camera it is necessary to use an algorithm which interpolates those colors which are " not known" by the specific pixel. E.g. The red pixel does not know its green and blue components.

This means that the performance of the image depends on the software used.

Please be aware that it is not possible to incorporate the algorithm into the camera so easily.

Unlike NTSC/PAL cameras there is no hardware chip available which can do that for such large images. The user has the advantage to alter the colors depending on his needs. Thus the color image must be processed in the PC. A color source code is available on request.

We offer a complete set for a system setup containing camera, cable, power supply, frame grabber and software to help solving your applications.

If you have questions do not hesitate to contact us or your local dealer.

Appendix A - Troubleshooting

Problem:

Camera does not respond to light

Solution:

Please execute following steps

Check if camera is in mode 0).Thus: Freerunning with serial exposure ctrl . When done, check with “Convenient Cam “program if you can read back any data from the camera like : Mode, type of CCD, exposure time settings and so on.

If Mode 0 ) works check the signals of the camera in the desired operation mode like 1) or 2). In these modes check if the Exsync signal is present. Please note that a differential signal must be fed to the SCSI 4 connector . The typical signal swing for LVDS must be about 250 mV. Below such level the drivers in the camera will not work. If you use a TTL level signal fed to the TB 5 connector check the quality and swing. If these signals are not there or don’ t have the right quality the camera can not read out any frame ( mode 1 and 2).

Problem:

lmage is present but distorted:

Solution:

Check the camera configuration file of your framegrabber. Check number of “front- and back porch “ pixel. Wrong numbers in configuration file can cause sync problems. Check if your framegrabber can work with the data rate of the camera.

Problem:

The image of a color version camera looks ”ugly” or false colors appear.

Solution:

If the raw image looks OK check the camera file to see if the pixels need to be shifted by either one pixel or one line. The image depends on the algorithm used. If the algorithm is starting with the wrong pixel such effects appear.

Problem:

The colors of a color version are not perfect especially when using

a halogen light.

Solution:

Halogen light contains strong portions of IR radiation. Use cut off filters at around

730 nm like Schott KG 3 to prevent IR radiation reaching the CCD.

Problem:

No serial communication is possible between the camera and the PC Camera

Link)

Solution:

Use “ load camera DLL” and try again.

Appendix B - Basic timing for different operation modes

Notes.:

The fundamental signals are PVAL (STROBE), LVAL and FVAL , and in case of triggered modes ,

Exsync .

Mode 0 : Free running using serial Interface

A frame is readout automatically and the data are valid indicated by LVAL per line and FVAL by frame. The data is valid at the rising edge of PVAL ( Strobe) The frame rate is about 13 FPS and there is no need to trigger the camera in order to get data. The enclosed software allows the user to set exposure time e.g. from 60 µsec 60 mSec ( camera type dependent). The time set stays resident after power off if the configuration is saved to EEPROM.

Exposure time

Data

Mode 1: External Trigger and Pulsewidth of EXSYNC

In this mode the camera is waiting for an external trigger which starts integration and read out.

Exposure time can be varied using the length of the EXSYNC pulse ( I. E. between the high going edge and the low going edge). The time settings in the control software are not activated.

This mode is useful in applications where the light level of the sceen changes during operation and the framegrabber can provide such a signal. Change of exposure time is possible from one frame to the next.

EXSYNC

Exposure time

Data

Mode 2 : External trigger and serial Interface

The frane rate is determined by the number of EXSYNC pulses per time unit. With each positive transition ( going high) the camera will readout a frame. Exposuretime is set in the same way as in the free running mode but with an exposure range from 60 µSec to 4,3 Sec.

Exposure time can be changed online during operation. No frame is distorted during switching time. The time set stays resident after power off, if the configuration is saved to EEPROM.

Note on Camera Link Software DLL:

Page 34

Serial (RS232 ) Interface to CAMERA LINK Frame grabbers using Camera Link DLL:

If Interface is made according to Camera Link standard:

The software does not communicate via RS 232 port of the PC but via clser*.dll-Interface.

CameraLink standard 1.0:

This is the Interface defined by "Camera Link" specification and the frame grabber manufacturer should offer/use a clser*.dll to communicate with.( The star "*" indicates the specific code of the

FG manufacturer).

Camera Link standard 2.0:

In Camera Link standard version 2.0 is a DLL called clallserial.dll which allows automatically to load the correct framegrabber specific DLLs. If frame grabber does not support version 2.0 than delete clallserial.dll and use version 1.0.

OPERATION:

- After starting ConvCam simply click "OK" on error message. This is due to not cleared

"communication path" of the RS232 and it must be initiated.

- for Camera Link standard 1.0 only:

- Click on "Configuration".

- Open "CamlinkDLL" ( File browser will open)

- Choose sub directory where clser*.dll is located. For example: For EURESYS ( usually

C:\WINNT\system32\), "clseremc.dll" .

- Set COM-Port to the appropriate number ( “1 “ for the first Camera Link connector , “2” for the second connector a.s.o. ).

- Click on ReadStatus.

Handling Precautions

DANGER

If any overheating sign is observed, discontinue the use immediately.

In the event that smoke, smell, or any other overheating sign is observed, turn the power switch of the system OFF immediately and remove the power cable(s) from the system connectors, like computer, camera, lightning. Do NOT try to continue to use the system. To do so in spite of clear signs of malfunction invites a fire, an electric shock hazard, or a serious damage to the system components. In such case, contact for repair service us or our dealer/distributor, from which you purchased the system.

If any malfunctioning sign is observed, discontinue the use immediately.

Do NOT try to use the system when it is malfunctioning. (Ex. No images on the monitor) In the event of malfunction, turn the power switch of the system OFF immediately and remove the system power cables from the system components connectors. In such case, contact for repair service us or our dealer/distributor from which you purchased the system.

Users Manual Area Scan Cameras SVS424/204/285/2020/4021 Page 36

If any foreign object gets into the system components, discontinue the use immediately.

In the event that liquids, small particles, or any other foreign objects get into the system components, do NOT try to continue to use the system. To do so invites a fire or an electric shock hazard. In that case, turn the power switch of the system components OFF immediately and remove the system power cables from the system components connectors. After that, contact us or our dealer/distributor from which you purchased the camera for repair service/technical advice.

Do NOT disassemble the system components.

Do NOT attempt to pull apart; repair, or modify the system components on your own.

To do so leads to a fire or an electric shock accident. Contact us or the dealer/distributor from which you purchased the camera for repair/modifacation.

Do NOT supply any power than specified.

The system components are designed to work only under specified voltage. Do NOT attempt to drive the system components with the power other than specified.

Operating the system components under power other than specified invites a fire or a electric shock hazard.

Do NOT use the system components in a high-humidity environment.

Do NOT place the system components near a humidifier, or in other high-humidity environment. To do so may cause a fire or an electric shock accident.

CAUTION

If the system components are operated in the electromagnetic field, there may be cases where noises (vertical, horizontal, or oblique stripes) may appear to a video output or causes other malfunctions. In that case, take preventive measures on the electromagnetic-wave generating source so that the system components do not receive the interference by the electromagnetic- wave. Take extra precautions against electromagnetic-wave-interference if the system components are used with a servomotor, inverter, or other electromagnetic-wave- generating equipment.

Avoid giving a strong shock against the system components. If your system components are used in the system where the connector are subjected to strong repetitive shocks, the connector are possible to break down. If you intend to use your system components in such a situation, make sure to use an optional-connectorfixing-hardware to connect the connector-plug to the system components body.

When the system components are not in use, put a lens or a lens-cap onto the cam head so that the image pickup plane of CCD is protected from dust, foreign object, or other flaw-causing object. If the glass plane (image pickup plane) gets dirty, clean it with a cotton swab. When it needs to be cleaned with a cleaner, be sure NOT to use any organic solvent other than ethyl alcohol. Do not clean the other system components. In such a case call us or the dealer/distributor from which you purchased the system components for cleaning or cleaning instructions.

As a countermeasure against condensation, when the system components are moved from a warm place to a cold place, take appropriate precautions to prevent condensation from forming on the system components.

Do not pull strongly the any cable nor swing it. The stress from pulling or swinging may cause damage in the coating of the cable, or breaks in the inside wires.

Avoid short-circuiting its signal output. Otherwise, the system components might be damaged.

If too much amount of light, (= the incoming light amount of 100 times or greater in comparison with standard light) enters CCD image pickup plane, video output might not be obtained. In such a case, take measures to reduce the amount of incoming light.

Users Manual Area Scan Cameras SVS424/204/285/2020/4021 Page 37

Do NOT expose the camera to intensive light (sunlight, etc.) to prevent its inner CCD from getting damaged.

When mounting a lens, take extra caution so that the lens is not tilled, nor does flaw exist at the lens-mount-screw part. Also check to confirm that neither dirt nor other foreign object is put inside. Improper mounting might cause the parts to become locked.

DANGER

Do NOT use any optional unit other than manufacturer-supplied one. We disclaim any responsibility for damages or losses incurred by user due to the use of unauthorized / unofficial option units supplied by a third party
