    Page 2 SUPPLIED PARTS The supplied equipment comprises the following: • One Inca 311 camera. • One hardware manual (this document). If any of these items is not included notify your supplier immediately.
  • Page 5: Hardware

    HARDWARE The Inca hardware consists of the following modules: • TriMedia processor • CMOS sensor • IEEE 1394 (FireWire™) interface • RS232 serial interface • Video outputs VGA and CVBS • Digital inputs and outputs • Trigger input and flashlight output •...

    CMOS SENSOR 2.2.1 Inca 311 In the Inca 311 a monochrome sensor PCS2112-LM from Zoran is implemented. This high performance CMOS imaging sensor has an extreme ‘uniform pixel array’ and an extremely low ‘fixed-pattern noise’ because of its ‘Distributed Pixel Amplifier’ architecture. The following main features, supported by the Inca 311, are available: •...
  • Page 7 2.3.1 IEEE 1394 (FireWire™) For the interconnection of the Inca camera to the host PC a so-called IEEE 1394 interface, also known as FireWire™, is used. For this link the PC must be equipped with an IEEE 1394 interface. This IEEE 1394 can be an onboard OHCI version, a PCILynx- or OHCI- IEEE 1394 PCI expansion board in case of a desktop PC or a PCMCIA expansion card in case of a notebook.
  • Page 8 switched to the on position with a positive input, the flash unit will flash or lit continuously. Using the Trigger Input The trigger input is optically isolated. The following diagram shows and example of how to use the optical Isolated input. Inca Figure 2-3 Optical isolated trigger input When the diode is conducting and thus emitting light, the...
  • Page 9 2.3.3 Digital I/O The Digital Input and Output connectors give the user the possibility to connect and control a number of devices. For that purpose 6 output and 6 input lines are available. These output and input lines are optically isolated from the Inca (see explanation: 2.3.4 How to use the isolated input/output).
  • Page 10 2.3.4 How to use the isolated input/output In this part the user will find how the optical isolation is implemented in the Inca. Not only the digital input and output lines are optically isolated but also the flash and watchdog output and the trigger input. Input(p) Return(n) Figure 2-4: Circuit for optical isolation...
  • Page 11 2.3.5 Multi-purpose connector Looking at the back of the Inca the connector in the left bottom corner is a multi-purpose connector. The connector, a 9 pole micro-D connector, contains connections for an external power supply, 3-wire serial I/O, the input for an external system reset and a watchdog function.
  • Page 12 2.3.6 The display connector The display connector can be used for the connection of a VGA or a CVBS monitor. Only one of these two possibilities can be activated at a time. The VGA output has a resolution of 680x480 pixels in a non-interlaced mode.
  • Page 13: Powering Up

    POWERING UP When the Inca is powered up, the Inca will boot. One of the first things it will do is to start a self-test to make sure that it is functional. After correct completion of the test a check is added for the presence of a host that waits to download an application.
  • Page 14: Software Installation

    SOFTWARE INSTALLATION There is no special software supplied with the Inca for installation purposes, so no installation is necessary. The start-up procedure and running an application is completely done by software control. A number of software products are available supporting the Inca and can be purchased from Industrial Vision.
  • Page 15: Mechanical Interface

    MECHANICAL INTERFACE For the purpose of installation and handling the camera in an application two mechanical preparations have been made to the camera body: • Three M4 screw holes in the bottom of the camera The one in the camera front end is the most important one because this comprises the sensor.
