Frame Rate Control
The camera provides the following two methods for
frame rate control during internal continuous drive
Auto Frame Rate setting
The fastest frame rate is configured automatically
based on the current shutter setting and binning/partial
scan setting. This is the default frame rate control
setting for the camera.
To increase the frame rate, enable the binning mode or
partial scan function. Depending on whether the
exposure time is longer than the frame period, the
frame rate will be reduced proportionally. Therefore,
shorten the shutter time as necessary.
Frame Rate setting
Configure the frame rate manually. However, you
cannot increase the frame rate beyond the fastest
setting. In addition, if the exposure time is longer than
the configured frame period, the frame rate will be
reduced in proportion to the exposure time.
When you want to minimize network traffic, use this
setting to lower the frame rate while maintaining the
same shutter setting.
The camera has a frame rate display function for
verifying the frame rate obtained using the above
settings. By using this function to confirm that an
anticipated frame rate has been obtained, you can verify
frame correspondence with hardware triggering. For
width-mode hardware triggering, set the hardware
trigger period to the displayed frame rate, and set the
hardware trigger width to the displayed internal shutter
value. For edge-mode hardware triggering, set only the
trigger period to the displayed frame rate.
The following three image acquisition modes are
• Continuous image output
• Output a user-specified number of frames (from 1 to
• Single frame output
Memory Channels and
Sixteen memory channels are provided for camera
parameters that can be switched at each frame when
using bulk and sequential trigger modes.
The memory channels can also be used to store user
settings when the special trigger mode is set to Normal,
to be applied when switching the camera state for
Each memory channel provides 64 bytes of non-volatile
read-write storage for users to store data freely.
Stored data is preserved even when the power is turned
Displays the data size of 1 frame in bytes. This is
calculated from the image size (Width × Height) and
Mono8: Width × Height
Mono10 Packed/Mono12 Packed: Width × Height × 1.5
Mono10/Mono12: Width × Height × 2.0
PersistentIP, DHCP, or LLA can be selected for IP
When DHCP or LLA is selected, the current IP address,
current subnet mask, and current default gateway will be
When PersistentIP is selected, IP address, subnet mask,
and default gateway should be set.
Sets the packet size in bytes. Set a value that is not more
than the MTU defined for the network adapter.
• When setting the parameter (Width, Height,
PixelFormat) for calculating PayloadSize, stop
camera image output beforehand.
• When PacketSize is set, an error may occur depending
on the image size or pixel format setting. If an error
occurs, check whether the PacketSize setting
condition (PacketSize ≤ PayloadSize) is satisfied.
• Any static IP address can be set, but the camera may
become unable to be detected depending on the IP
address setting. If that happens, use the tool for issuing
ForceIP and set the static IP address again.
