Cleaning th
he sensor
DO
O NOT CON
NTACT CLEAN SENSSOR UNLEESS
AB
BSOLUTELLY NECESSARY
Identiffying Debriss
Debris on the image sensor or optical components w
will appear as a darkened area or smudge on the image
that doees not move as the
t camera is moved.
m
Do not confuse this wiith a pixel defeect which will apppear as a
distinct point.
Locatin
ng Debris
Before attempting to clean the imagee sensor, it is im
mportant to firsst determine that the problem
m is due to
debris on
n the sensor wiindow. To do th
his you should be viewing a unniform image, such as a piecee of paper,
with the camera. Debriss will appear ass a dark spot orr dark region thhat does not moove as the cameera is
moved. To determine that
t
the debris is not on the caamera lens, rottate the lens independent of tthe
camera. If the spot mo
oves as the lenss moves, then t he object is on the lens -not oon the image seensor- and
therefore cleaning is no
ot required. If the camera ha s an IR filter, t hen rotate the IR filter. If thee object
moves th
hen the particlee is on the IR filter not the sennsor. If this is the case removve the IR filter ccarefully
using a small
s
flat head screw driver. Clean both sidees of the IR filtter using the saame techniquess as
explaineed below for thee sensor window.
DO
O NOT TOUCCH ANY OPT
PTICS WITH FINGERS. OIL FROM
M
FINGERS CAN
N DAMAGE FRAGILE O
OPTICAL CO
OATINGS.
Cleanin
ng with Air
If it is deetermined that debris is on the sensor windoow, then removve the camera leens, and blow tthe sensor
window directly with cllean compresseed air. If canneed air is used, ddo not shake or tilt the can priior to
blowing the sensor. Vieew a live image with the cameera after blowinng. If the debris is still there, repeat this
process. Repeat the prrocess a number of times with increased inteensity until it is determined th
hat the
particulaate cannot be dislodged.
d
If this is the case thhen proceed too the contact cleeaning techniqque.
Contacct Cleaning
Only usee this method as a last resort. Use 99% laborratory quality isopropyl alcoh
hol and clean cootton
swabs. Dampen
D
the sw
wab in the alcoh
hol and gently w
wipe the sensor in a single strroke. Do not reeuse the
same swab. Do not wip
pe the sensor if the sensor andd swab are bothh dry. You mustt wipe the sensoor quickly
after imm
mersion in the alcohol, or glue from the swaab will contaminnate the sensor window. Repeat this
process until the debriss is gone. If thiis process fails to remove the debris, then coontact AVT.

Signal definitions
Term
Definition
User Trigger
Trigger signal applied by the user (hardware trigger,
software trigger)
Logic Trigger
Trigger signal seen by the camera internal logic (not
visible to the user)
Tpd
Propagation delay between the User Trigger and the Logic
Trigger
Exposure
... is high when the camera image sensor is integrating
light.
Readout
... is high when the camera image sensor is reading out
data.
Trigger Latency
Time delay between the User Trigger and the start of
Exposure
Trigger Jitter
Error in the Trigger Latency Time
Trigger Ready
... indicates to the user that the camera will accept the
next trigger.
Registered Exposure Time
... is the Exposure Time value currently stored in the
camera memory.
Exposure Start Delay
... is the Registered Exposure Time subtracted from the
Readout time and indicates when the next Exposure cycle
can begin such that the Exposure will end after the current
Readout.
Interline Time
... is the time between sensor row readout cycles.
Imaging
... is high when the camera image sensor is either
exposing and/or reading out data.
Idle
... is high if the camera image sensor is not exposing
and/or reading out data.

• The camera frame rate ccan be increaased by reduccing the camera's
Height attribute, resultiing in a decreased region
n of interest (ROI) or
"window".
• The camera frame rate ccan also be inncreased by iincreasing th
