General
The KP-DE500 is an ultra high sensitivity color camera
that utilizes the electron multiplication type CCD
(EM-CCD) image sensor.
The KP-E500 is an ultra high sensitivity camera that
utilizes the electron multiplication type CCD (EM-CCD)
image sensor.
Features
Ultra high sensitivity
Ultra high sensitivity is possible due to the electron
multiplication (EM) CCD which multiplies the charge on
the individual pixels before the charge is converted to a
voltage, eliminating noise that would be associated with
amplification gain. Moving images retain the clarity and
sharpness even under low light conditions.
High color fidelity
An RGB primary color mosaic filter is used to produce
images of high vertical resolution and color fidelity.
New digital signal processor (DSP)
A new Digital Signal Processor (DSP) with improved
luminance signal processing and a 5 H enhancer is used
to obtain high quality images with a high signal to noise
(S/N) ratio.
Various functions
・Auto tracking white balance (ATW)
・Color / Black & White select
・Digital noise reduction (DNR)
・Electric shutter speed
・Electric sensitivity enhance
・Backlight compensation (BLC)
・Text display (character generator)

Operating considerations
Power supply
Be sure to use the power source specified in the Major
Specifications.
・Before plugging or unplugging a connector, be sure
to turn off power.
To plug or unplug a connector, be sure to hold the
connector section.
・Note that it will take several seconds until a picture is
displayed on the monitor after power on.
Handling
・Do not attempt to remove cover.
・When installing or removing a lens, be sure to use
care that water or dust does not enter the inside of.
the camera.
Installing and storage
Avoid installing or storing the camera in the following
environments.
・Environments exposed to direct sunlight, rain or snow
・Environments where combustible or corrosive gas
exists
・Excessively warm or cold environment (Operating
ambient temperature: -10 to 50℃)
・Humid or dusty environment
・Place subjected to excessive vibration or shock
・Environment exposed to strong electric or magnetic field
2
・Do not aim the camera lens at the sun.
・Do not shoot strong light or a scene including strong light.
When such a scene is shot, vertical trailings will appear.
However, this is not due to failure.
In case strong Tight enters the camera through the lens,
partial deterioration in picture quality will result.
To obtain stable performance for long time
When the camera is used continuously for long time
under high ambient temperature, the inside electrical
parts become deteriorated, resulting in shortening its life.
To use the camera continuously for long time, the
highest temperature must be below 40℃.
Cleaning
・Use a blower or a lens brush to remove dusts on the
lens or the optical filter.
・Wipe dirts on the case off with dry soft cloth. lf dirks
are hardened, wipe them off with cloth moistened
with neutral detergent liquid; wipe the cover with dry cloth.
・Do not use benzine,thinner,alcohol,liquid cleaner or
spray-type cleaner.
・In event dust or other debris is lodged between the CCD
and optical filter, consult dealer for cleaning by an optical
technician.
Phenomena inherent to CCD imaging device
Following are the phenomena inherent to a CCD imaging device, and not defects
1) Smear and blooming
When strong light (lamp, fluorescent lamp, and
reflected light, etc.) is shot, a blue belt to remain thinly
in vertical and the horizontal direction of light might go
out.
2) Fixed pattern noise
When the camera is operated in a high temperature,
fixed pattern noise may appear on the entire screen.
3) Moire
When fine patterns are shot, moire may be displayed.
4) Burning
Moreover, the lower side on the monitor screen might
become pure-white momentarily.
When excessively intense light comes to the CCD for a
long time, the spectral filter in the CCD pixel may be
deteriorated, and the color of the corresponding portion
may change.
Avoid using the camera under such condition.
In this case, change the angle of the camera so that
such strong light does not enter the camera through
the lens.

External power supply connection
Connect the video output of the camera to the video input of a
monitor or other equipment. When using a “loop through”
connection of two or the more monitors, set the 75Ω switch of
only the final monitor to ON.
Determine the type of cable according to the distance of the
connected equipment. The maximum cable lengths indicated
below are recommended for avoiding appreciable picture
degradation.

Use a stabilized 12 VDC(±10%) power supply rated at 2.5
ampere or greater. Wire the accessory 3-pin DC plug as
shown in the figure for connecting the power supply to the
camera.
Caution
Be sure to confirm proper polarity before switching
on power.

Flangeback adjustment
Flangeback adjustment is needed in cases where focus cannot
be obtained by normal lens focus operation or focus is lost at the
maximum telephoto and wide angle settings of a zoom lens.
In such cases, open the lens iris and adjust as follows.
Zoom lens
1)
2) Turn the lens focus ring to adjust the focus.
3)
Set the lens to wide angle. Loosen the (2) lens mount
screws and turn the lens mount ring to adjust the focus.
Use care not to disturb the lens focus ring.
4)
Again set to telephoto but adjust the focus by turning the
Lens focus ring.
Fixed focus lens
1) Set the lens focus ring to infinity.
2)
Aim toward an object at least 20 meters distant.
3) Loosen the (2) lens mount screws and turn the lens mount
ring to adjust the focus. Use care not to disturb the lens
focus ring.
4) Tighten the lens mount screws.
NOTE
If using an auto iris lens and the adjustment object distance
is less than several meters, due to lens depth of focus
relationship, slight blurring can occur at certain iris positions.
In this event, darken the scene so as to open the iris and
adjust the focus or flangeback to prevent the blurring.
10
Set the lens to telephoto and aim toward an object at least
20 meters distant.
5) Repeat these steps and carefully adjust for best focus.
6) Finally, tighten the lens mount screws.
Camera mounting
If the camera is to be suspended from the ceiling,
change the position of the tripod adaptor from the
bottom to the top of the camera, as indicated in the figure.
Caution:
Tripod adaptor
Use the following type of camera mounting screw.
Type :U 1/4-20
Length:L=7mm
Binding head screws M3 x 8
If longer than 7 mm, there is risk of internal damage to
the camera. Conversely, if too short, the camera will not
be firmly secured and there is risk of dropping.

In the following types of cases, reduce the sensitivity
multiple.
・
Noise increases at high sensitivity and further
increases at high frequency.
・
The Shutter speed cannot be changed during
Auto and Manual SENS UP settings. Temporarily
set SENS UP to OFF when changing the Shutter
speed.
・
White flaws may become apparent at high
sensitivity, but these are not due to malfunction.

AUTO
: Changes to the color image and B/W image
automatically according to brightness.
1)
The character of the rest of “AUTO” is showing
the brightness (the image level) where the mode
changes from color to a B/W image.
AUTO(H) : About 70% or less of proper levels
AUTO(M) : About 50% or less of proper levels
AUTO(L) : About 30% or less of proper levels
2)
Change is using the scale factor data of the
amplification data or SENS UP of automatic gain
control for the color image from a B/W image.
AGC setting is “OFF” or SENS UP setting is
“OFF” / ”MANU” are not able to use the “AUTO”
setting of BW MODE.
About B/W mode
The camera CCD responds to infrared light (From 700nm
to 1000nm) that is invisible to the human eye.
The normal color mode uses an IR cut filter to remove the
infrared component.
Sensitivity is usually more important in the B/W mode.
Therefore, the IR cut filter is removed to take advantage of
sensitivity in the infrared region.
24
NOTE
1) In the case that near infrared lighting is used the
hunting phenomenon causing repeated changes
between the color and B/W mode may occur. Avoid
strong near Infrared lighting when using the AUTO
Mode.
2)
When the mode is changed to a B/W image where
there is no near infrared light a change in sensitivity
does not occur.
3)
The focus face of the lens differs in visible light (the
color image) and near infrared (the B/W image).
The focus has deviated when the mode is changed
to a B/W image even if the focus was set properly for
the color image. Please use a lens having near
infrared response when using the B/W mode.
4)
“AGC LIMIT” binds B/W mode AUTO to (H) or (M) at
the time of, “220” or more binding.
