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.
You must supply camera power that complies with the Universal Serial Bus 3.0 specification.
The camera's nominal operating voltage is 5 VDC, effective on the camera's connector.
- Use a high-quality USB 3.0 cable with a USB 3.0 Micro-B plug.
- Do not use cables with a USB 1.x/2.0 Micro-B cable plug, even if you are connecting the camera to a USB 2.0 port. Otherwise, the camera may not work properly.
- To avoid EMI, cables must be shielded, as specified in the USB 3.0 standard.
- Basler recommends using USB 3.0 cables from the Basler Vision Components range.
For more information about recommended USB 3.0 cables, see the Recommended Accessories for Basler USB 3.0 Cameras document.
USB 2.0 Compatibility#
All Basler pulse USB 3.0 cameras are USB 2.0 backward compatible.
However, performance is limited when connected to a USB 2.0 port:
- In order to handle the lower USB 2.0 bandwidth, the
DeviceLinkThroughputLimitparameter value is set to 32 000 000 (32 MByte/s).
- This reduces the maximum possible frame rate.
- This also affects other aspects of the performance, e.g., the sensor readout time, trigger delay, jitter, or the precision of the exposure time set.
- If you operate a puA1280-54um/uc camera module on a USB 2.0 port, image noise may increase. This is because the image sensor produces more image noise at low frame rates. To reduce image noise at low frame rates, try the following:
For information about suitable USB 2.0 host controllers and about optimizing the USB 2.0 data transmission rate, see the Recommended USB 2.0 Host Controllers for Basler dart and pulse Cameras application note.
USB 3.0 Connector#
The camera's USB 3.0 connector is a standard Micro-B USB 3.0 connector. It provides a USB 3.0 connection to supply power to the camera and to transmit video data and control signals.
Connection assignments and numbering adhere to the Universal Serial Bus 3.0 standard. The recommended mating connector is a Micro-B USB 3.0 plug.
All pulse cameras are equipped with a tripod socket to attach the camera to a tripod. The socket has a standard 1/4-20 UNC thread.
