Spectral Response#

Sony ICX415 Spectral Response

The spectral response curve excludes lens characteristics, light source characteristics, and IR cut filter characteristics.

IR Cut Filter#

Color cameras are equipped with an IR cut filter. The filter is mounted in a filter holder inside the lens mount.

The IR cut filter has the following spectral characteristics:

Wavelength [nm] Transmittance
450–610 Tmin > 90 %
450–620 Tavg > 93 %
645 ± 10 T = 50 %
700–1070 Tmax < 4 %
690–1070 Tavg < 1 %

The filter holder can be removed. For more information, see the ace IR Cut Filter Holder Removal Procedure application note.

Heat Dissipation#

→ See Providing Heat Dissipation.

Electrical Requirements#

DANGER – Electric Shock Hazard

Unapproved power supplies may cause electric shock. Serious injury or death may occur.

  • You must use power supplies that meet the Safety Extra Low Voltage (SELV) and Limited Power Source (LPS) requirements.
  • If you use a powered hub or powered switch, they must meet the SELV and LPS requirements.
WARNING – Fire Hazard

Unapproved power supplies may cause fire and burns.

  • You must use power supplies that meet the Limited Power Source (LPS) requirements.
  • If you use a powered hub or powered switch, they must meet the LPS requirements.
NOTICE – Incorrect voltage can damage the camera.

You must supply camera and I/O power within the safe operating voltage ranges specified below.

Do not use negative voltage for an I/O line.

Camera Power#

NOTICE – Dual camera power supply can damage the camera.

You must supply camera power either via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via the camera's I/O connector.

Do not use both ways of supplying camera power at the same time.

  • Power supply via Power over Ethernet (PoE): Power must comply with the IEEE 802.3af specification.
  • Power supply via I/O connector: The nominal operating voltage is 12 VDC (10.8 VDC minimum, 13.2 VDC maximum), includes <1 % ripple.

Opto-Coupled I/O Input Line#

Voltage Description
30 VDC Absolute maximum. This voltage must never be exceeded. Doing so may damage the camera and voids the warranty.
0–24 VDC Safe operating range.
0–1.4 VDC Indicates a logical 0 (with inverter disabled).
>1.4–2.2 VDC Region where the logic level transition occurs; the logical state is not defined in this region.
>2.2 VDC Indicates a logical 1 (with inverter disabled).
  • Minimum current: 5 mA
  • Current draw: 5–15 mA
  • If the camera is connected to a PLC device, Basler recommends using a cable that adjusts the voltage level of the PLC to that of the camera.

Opto-Coupled I/O Output Line#

Voltage Description
30 VDC Absolute maximum. This voltage must never be exceeded. Doing so may damage the camera and voids the warranty.
3.3–24 VDC Safe operating range.
<3.3 VDC Unreliable I/O output.
  • Leakage current: <60 µA. Actual leakage depends on operating temperature and production spread of electronic components.
  • Maximum load current: 50 mA
  • Minimum load current: Not specified. Consider the following:
    • Leakage current will have a stronger effect when load currents are low.
    • Propagation delay of the output increases as load currents decrease.
    • Higher-impedance circuits tend to be more susceptible to EMI.
    • Higher currents cause higher voltage drops in long cables.

For more information about the I/O lines, see the I/O Control section.

Circuit Diagrams#

→ See Circuit Diagrams (Basler ace).

Cable Requirements#

Ethernet Cable#

  • Use a high-quality Ethernet cable. Use of shielded CAT 5E or better cables with S/STP shielding is recommended.
  • Use either a straight-through (patch) or a cross-over Ethernet cable.
  • As a general rule, applications with longer cables or applications in harsh EMI conditions require higher category cables.
  • Proximity to strong magnetic fields should be avoided.
  • Basler recommends using Ethernet cables from the Basler Vision Components range.

I/O Cable#

  • The I/O cable must be shielded.
  • The I/O cable must have a cross-section of at least 0.14 mm² (close to AWG26).
  • Use a twisted pair wire cable.
  • Maximum recommended cable length: 10 m
  • Camera-side connector: Hirose micro plug (part number HR10A-7P-6S) or equivalent
  • Proximity to strong magnetic fields should be avoided.
  • If you are supplying power to the camera via Power over Ethernet, the I/O cable will not be used to supply power. However, you can still use the cable to connect to the I/O lines.
  • Basler recommends using I/O cables from the Basler Vision Components range:

Physical Interface#

Camera Connectors#

Camera Connectors

Ethernet Connector#

  • 100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet connection to the camera
  • If power is not supplied via I/O connector: Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • 8-pin RJ-45 jack
  • Recommended mating connector: 8-pin RJ-45 plug (snap-in or with locking screws)
  • When using locking screws, note the horizontal orientation of the screws.

I/O Connector#

  • If power is not supplied via Power over Ethernet (PoE): Power supply
  • Hirose micro receptacle (part number HR10A-7R-6PB)
  • Recommended mating connector: Hirose micro plug (part number HR10A-7P-6S)
