Manual control functions

The camera’s control through an I2C interface using an on-screen menu for the following functions:

  • Video mode
  • Exposure control mode
  • Exposure
  • Exposure control window
  • Intensifier Ggting
  • Intensifier gain level
  • Video gain
  • Gamma toggle
  • Integration
  • Uniformity correction

General performance data

The DVS camera contains scene illumination specifications of 10-6lux – 10,000lux, but when used in conjunction with an adjustable iris lens or neutral density filter(s), it may be extended to 150,000lux. The system’s overload protection features a digital gated intensifier off at more than 10,000lux, which automatically resets after ten seconds.

Depending on the mode used, the camera’s resolution sepcifications differ. When using the camera in digital mode, the resolution specifications range between 1392px x 1040px, and the user can decide between using full scan or selected subareas. In the analog CCIR and EIA modes, the resolution ranges between 768px x 576px and 648px x 486px, respectively.

At the time of ordering, customers can choose between the LVDS and GigE digital interfaces.

The camera includes a uniformity / shading / blemish correction function which will provide a reduction in spatial non-uniformities in all output modes. The function applies gain / offset corrections to all active imaging pixels.
