Usage Precautions
Handle carefully
Do not drop the equipment or allow it to be subject to strong impact or vibration, as such action
may cause malfunctions. Further, do not damage the connection cable, since this may cause
wire breakage.
Environmental operating conditions
Do not use the product in locations where the ambient temperature or humidity exceeds
specifications. Otherwise, image quality may be degraded or internal components may be
adversely affected. In particular, do not use the product in areas exposed to direct sunlight.
More over, during shooting under high temperatures, vertical stripes or white spots (noise) may
be produced, depending on the subject or camera conditions (such as increased gain).
However, such phenomena are not malfunctions.
Do not shoot under intense light
Avoid intense light such as spotlights on part of the screen because it may cause blooming or
smears. If intense light falls on the screen, vertical stripes may appear on the screen, but this is
not a malfunction.
Occurrence of moiré
If you shoot thin stripe patterns, moiré patterns (interference fringes) may appear. This is not
Occurrence of noise on the screen
If an intense magnetic or electromagnetic field is generated near the camera or connection
cable, noise may be generated on the screen. If this occurs, move the camera or the cable.
Handling of the protective cap
If the camera is not in use, attach the lens cap to the camera to protect the image pickup
If the equipment is not to be used for a long duration
Turn off power to the camera for safety.
Turn off power to the equipment and wipe it with a dry cloth.
If it becomes severely contaminated, gently wipe the affected areas with a soft cloth dampened
with diluted neutral detergent. Never use alcohol, benzene, thinner, or other chemicals because
such chemicals may damage or discolor the paint and indications.
If the image pickup surface becomes dusty, contaminated, or scratched, consult your sales
When disposing of the camera, it may be necessary to disassemble it into separate parts, in
accordance with the laws and regulations of your country and/or municipality concerning
environmental contamination.
CMOS sensor characteristics
Defective pixels
A CMOS image sensor is composed of photo sensor pixels in a square grid array. Due to the
characteristics of CMOS image sensors, over- or under-driving of the pixels results in temporary
white or black areas (as if these are noises) appearing on the screen. This phenomenon, which is
not a defect is exacerbated under higher temperatures and long exposure times.
Image shading
Under global shutter operation, the brightness of the upper part of the screen may differ from the
lower part. And, the brightness of the left part on the screen may differ from the right part.
However, this does not mean the CMOS image sensor is defective.
This phenomenon occurs under short exposure times and high illumination.
To counteract this phenomenon, reduce the illumination by setting a longer exposure time, or
adjust the lens aperture.
It may be blurred by this phenomenon when fast-moving subject captured.
1. Product Description
Model CSB1100F is a high-resolution B/W CMOS camera achieving high-speed image processing
by a random access.
2. Features
(1) Ultra-high resolution
The CSB1100F features a high-pixel CMOS sensor (Total pixel count: 1.30 Mega pixels),
enabling high-density images (i.e., significantly reduced moiré and beat) to be obtained.
(2) Global shutter mode
This model features a Global shutter mode, which means that clear images of a fast-moving
subject with little blurring are obtained.
(3) Random trigger shutter mode
This feature starts light-exposure in synchronization with external trigger signal, and enables
image capture at any given timing.
(4) WOIWindow Of Interest
WOI is a feature enabling high-speed image processing.
By designating horizontal and vertical addresses, user-defined areas only are read out.
(5) High-dynamic range
This model features a high-dynamic range with multi slope integration mode, both high-and
low-intensity subjects can be captured at the same time despite the high difference in contrast.

8. Function
(1) Electronic shutter
The shutter-speed of CSB1100F is also manually adjustable. By manipulating the internal register
setting value of CSB1100F, you can change the shutter-speed by user-defines setting value of 62.5
micro sec step.
*The longer a user sets the exposure time, the more defective pixels on the image is outstanding.
When you attach importance to image quality, it is recommendable to set the shutter speed at
30 msec or less.
(2) Random trigger shutter
Under the RTS mode, the camera can capture image at any user-defined timing with external
trigger signal. Under FIX mode, shutter speed can be set with the internal resister setting value.
Under pulse mode, shutter speed can be set with the trigger pulse width.
You can change the polarity of trigger pulse with the internal resister setting value.
(3) Multi slope function
By changing a slope position with internal resister setting value, you can set the sensitivity
matching to the subject luminance.
Refer to the interface specifications for the detail of the setting method separately.
(4) WOI (Window Of Interest)
Only user-defined area can be captured by designating of the horizontal and the vertical address.
Up to 16 areas can be set in 1 screen.
This function can increase a frame rate because the area other than designated is not captured.
The minimum area size is 50 dot(H) x 50 dot(V).
Horizontal address can set up only even number.
The placement is available up to 16 windows in all active pixel area.
The setting of readout address is available up to 8 types.
