EL-2800M-USB / EL-2800C-USB
Before using USB 3.0 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 EL-2800-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, EL-2800-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 EL-2800-USB.
Power supply
Although the USB 3.0 interface is capable of supporting both data and power, EL-2800-USB requires
both +5V and +12V. A separate power supply unit must be connected to the 12-pin connector for
providing +12V.
Computer used for EL-2800-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 EL-2800-USB may not
work properly depending on the chipset used in the PC.

EL-2800M-USB / EL-2800C-USB
1.
General
The EL-2800M-USB and EL-2800C-USB are new cameras in JAI’s Elite Series. They provide high
picture quality, such as high sensitivity and low noise, suitable for machine vision applications. The
EL-2800M-USB is a monochrome progressive scan CCD camera and the EL-2800C-USB is the
equivalent Bayer mosaic progressive scan CCD camera. Both are equipped with a 2/3 inch CCD
sensor offering 2.83 million pixels resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio. They provide 54.6 frames per
second for continuous scanning with 1920 x 1440 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 Bayer
outputs.
The new cameras feature a USB 3.0 interface. A full pixel readout, partial scan readout, or binning
mode (monochrome only) can be selected depending on the application.
EL-2800M-USB and EL-2800C-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 Elite Series feature, a new connector for lens control is employed. EL-2800M-USB and
EL-2800C-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.

5.5 Optical Interface
EL-2800-USB 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 EL-2800-USB has a frequency divider using the internal 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 settings (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.
5.6.1
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 EL-2800-USB, the internal pixel clock is 54 MHz.

Pulse Generator Length
Set the counter up value (number of clocks, refer to Table 12) 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.
5.6.4
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 for the clock which is divided in the clock
pre-scaler can occur.
5.6.5
Pulse Generator End Point
Set the active output ending count value for the selected pulse generator.
5.6.6
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.

Pulse Generator Clear Activation
Set the clear conditions of clear count pulse for the selected pulse generator.
5.6.8
Pulse Generator Clear Sync Mode
Set the count clear method for the selected pulse generator.
In 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 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.

Acquisition control
7.1.1
Acqusition mode
In the EL-2800M-USB and EL-2800C-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
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 instead of one frame.
◆ 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)
◆ 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.

7.1.1.2
MultiFrame
In this mode, the AcquisitionStart command captures the number of frames which are specified by
AcquisitionFrameCount.
◆ 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)
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.
 Acqusition Frame Count can be set in the range of 1 to 65535 (16-bit). The setting step
is 1 frame. In PIV mode, Acquisition Frame Count can be set in the range of 2 to 65535.
The setting for PIV mode is 2 frames per step.

Acquisition frame rate
With Trigger OFF (free-running operation), the default frame rate of the camera is based on the
specified ROI. However, it is possible to set a longer acquisition period than the time required to
read out all pixels in the area set by the ROI command.
This is done by entering a value in the AcquisitionFrameRate control corresponding to the
acquisition frame frequency.
The setting range is:
Shortest
The reciprocal of the time
required to read out all
pixels in the area set by ROI
or
The reciprocal of the time to
transmit one frame data
to
Longest
to
0.125 Hz (fps)
Note:
1. If the trigger is set to ON, this function is not available.
2. The value for setting is Frame Frequency.
3. If the setting value is less than the minimum period corresponding to the default frame
rate, this setting is ignored and camera operates at the minimum period.
Self-running (Trigger OFF) works under the following conditions.
Exposure Mode : OFF
Exposure Mode : Timed and Frame Start OFF
Exposure Mode : Trigger Width and Frame Start OFF.
7.1.3
Frame rate calculation formula
a) If V Bininng Off and Sensor Geometry 1X2-2YE
Frame_Rate (Hz) = 1000000/〔[ Height/2 + {(720-(Height/2)-1)/4} + 26 ]×24.574 〕
b) If V Bininng On and Sensor Geometry 1X2-2YE
Frame Rate (fps) = 100000/〔[ (Height/2) + {(360-(Height/2)-1)/2} + 17 ]×29.296 〕
c) If V Bininng Off and Sensor Geometry 1X-1Y
Frame_Rate (Hz) =
1000000/【〔 Height + {(OffsetY-1)/7} + [{1440-(OffestY + Height)}/15] + 47 〕×42.519】
d) If V Bininng On and Sensor Geometry 1X-1Y
Frame Rate (fps) =
1000000/【〔(Height/2)+ {(OffsetY-1)/4} + [{720-(OffsetY + (Height/2))}/8] +34 ×47.259】
Note: In this formula, the calculation results underlined must be rounded up.

Until the trigger is input, the camera operates continuously and the video signal for the auto-iris
lens is output. 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.

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 duration and the second
strobe is pulsed while the first frame is being read out. In this way, two strobe flashes generate two
video outputs.

8.3.
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. In the EL-2800C-USB, the same LUT characteristic is applied
independent of the color value
8.3.1
LUT Mode
Can be selected from OFF, gamma (see section 8.4), or Lookup Table.
8.3.2
LUT Index
This represents the “starting” or “input” pixel value to be modified by the Lookup Table. The
EL-2800-USB 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, 10-bit or
12-bit). 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. The block grid for compensation is 15
(H) x 12(V) blocks with 128 pixels x 128 pixels for each block .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 EL-2800M-USB and EL-2800C-USB have a blemish compensation circuit. This function
compensates blemishes on the CCD 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 pixels in both columns and, in the case of the
EL-2800C-USB, the defective pixels can be compensated by the same Bayer color pixels in both
adjacent columns. The number of pixels that can be compensated is up to 300 pixels.

About P-Iris
New Elite Series EL-2800M-PMCL and EL-2800C-PMCL 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).

8.7.2.3
Position
The iris position can be set between 0 to Step Max. 0 means to open the iris and Step Max
means to close the iris. The camera initializes P-iris control and acquires iris position under the
following conditions:
1) When the camera is powered
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.
8.7.2.6 Auto Iris Lens Control Signal Output
If the auto iris lens is used, this parameter should be ON. This is common for all types of
lenses.

8.7.4 Exclusive video output signal for iris control
This signal can be used for automatic lens iris control in Continuous and RCT modes.
This signal is available if AUX Type 2 connector is used for AUX (Factory option).
The iris video signal is composed to average the video level in the center area of each frame and can
be output as a composite signal with H-sync.
The following drawing shows the waveform of the iris control video signal. This signal is output with
the same video level within the same frame and the average is recalculated with each new frame.
Fig. 51 Iris video output signal
The following parameters of this auto iris control signal output can be changed.
Auto Iris Control Signal Output:
ON: The auto iris control can be connected with AGC and ASC as ALC function
OFF: The auto iris control is not connected with AGC and ASC.
Iris State Control:
Video: Use the iris control in auto mode.

ALC
In the EL-2800M-USB and EL-2800C-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 works together with AGC and Exposure Auto.

instance, if ALC Reference is set to 100% video level, AGC, Auto Shutter and/or Auto iris will
function to maintain 100% video level.
Please note that ALC function is available only in continuous mode, as well as RCT mode.

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 CCD 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.
4. Caution when mounting the camera
When you mount the camera on your system, please make sure to use screws of the recommended
length described in the following drawing. Longer screws may cause serious damage to the PCB
inside the camera.
