    I/O Specifications Trigger input (12-pin connector) 4.5 V to 24.0 V 0.0 V to 0.5 V Input Circuit 2 us to 4 s 10 kΩ Exposure output (12-pin connector) The amplitude level is derived from the average terminal edge values when resistance is 10 KΩ.
  • Page 11: Functions

    Trigger Polarity Functions Selects the polarity of the trigger input to the camera. You can select from Positive and Negative. The following diagram is an example of when Positive Trigger Shutter is selected. The trigger shutter modes allow images to be captured in response to triggers, and start exposure at a preset Trigger timing.
  • Page 12: Strobe Delay

    Strobe Delay A strobe control signal is assigned to the tenth pin on the Trigger 12-pin connector, allowing direct control of light- emission from a strobe connected to the camera. In Trigger generating device addition, you can configure a delay in the timing for light-emission in relation to the timing for exposure.
  • Page 13: Partial Scan Mode

    Binning (XCI-V100 only) Normal mode Note 1 block = 60 lines (XCI-SX100 and XCI-SX100C) The number of blocks in the horizontal direction of a 1 block = 30 lines (XCI-V100 and XCI-V100C) partial scan does not affect the frame rate.

    Note Binning Mode (Black The white balance cannot be adjusted if the image is too and White Models Only) bright or too dark. ATW Mode By combining data for adjacent pixels using the CCD, you can increase sensitivity and double the frame rate. A mode in which the white balance is automatically Two types of binning are available for selection: 1 ×...

  • Page 17: Buffer Lock

    Buffer Lock This camera allows you to lock (write-protect) frames of previously captured images. Watchdog Timer This camera has a watchdog timer. You set the watchdog timer with the software. If the watchdog timer is set and the timer is not reset within the specified interval, the system will restart.
  • Page 18: Gpio Function

    GPIO Function The 15-pin connector on the rear panel of the camera is equipped with four digital inputs and eight digital outputs. The input is connected to both the signal processing FPGA for the camera and the x86 CPU. Digital inputs, delayed digital inputs, external trigger inputs, and GPIO outputs from the x86 CPU can be selected for the output.
  • Page 19: Notes On The Camera Operations

    Note on CompactFlash Notes on the Camera This camera does not perform proper shutdown Operations procedures through software when the system restarts in response to the watchdog timer, or when the external power source is cut off. As a result, the file system of the CompactFlash may be damaged depending on your If Frame Rate Decrease Occurs operating system or applications.
