Other Information

The Active FCB-EV-HD-SDI is a complete interface solution to take full advantage of the high definition digital video provided by the FCB-EV7520A block camera. The interface board connects directly to the camera’s digital output port to give superior image quality.

This interface supports all the HD-SDI modes of the camera (For 3G-SDI support, please see Active Silicon’s Harrier range). In addition to the new FCB-EV7520A camera, the module supports other FCB cameras of the EV-series, such as the EV7500/7310/7300/5500/5300.

A DIP switch located on the rear of the interface board allows the HD video mode to be conveniently selected without the need to send serial commands to the camera. RS-232 communications port and the reset line are available. The Active FCB-EV-HD-SDI also has a built-in test pattern which conforms to the SMPTE RP-219-2002 specification.

The product is supplied as a kit consisting of the interface board, mounting kit and cables, and for volume OEMs the board alone may also be ordered without the mounting kit and cables if required.

The physical outline of the Active FCB-EV-HD-SDI sits within the rear profile of the FCB-EV series of cameras and the supplied mounting kit allows the module to be securely and neatly attached to the camera.

Connector Specification

HD-SDI Connector (J1)

The Active FCB-EV-HD-SDI is fitted with a 75 Ohm MCX connector, allowing the use of RG179 coax cable for connection to the interface module.

Connector type: Samtec MCX7-J-P-H-RA-TH1-SKT.

Mating cable: MCX 75 Ohm plug, typically to RG179 coaxial cable.
(MCX to 75 Ohm bulkhead BNC adapter supplied.)

Power in Connector (J2)

The Active-FCB-EV-HD-SDI is fitted with an industry standard 3-way connector for power in.

Connector type: JST (Japan Solderless Terminals) BM03B-SRSS-TB.

Mating cable: Suitable cable supplied as part of the kit.

See datasheet for pin assignment.

Signal and Control (J3)

The Active FCB-EV-HD-SDI is fitted with an industry standard 9-way connector allowing access to the camera serial port, reset, analog video outputs and also the interface module’s test pattern mode.

Connector type: JST BM09B-SRSS-TB.

Mating cable: Suitable cable supplied as part of the kit.

See datasheet for pin assignment.

Note 1: The serial interface is EIA/TIA-562. This is compatible with RS-232 and also allows low voltage signalling down to +/-3.3V. TxD and RxD tolerant to +/-25V.

KEL30 Connector (J4)

The Active FCB-EV-HD-SDI is fitted with a 30-way miniature connector to link to the matching connector on the FCB-EV camera.

Connector type: KEL USL00-30L.

Mating cable: KEL USL20-30SS-010-C. (Suitable cable supplied as part of the kit).

Video Mode DIP Switch (SW1)

The Active FCB-EV-HD-SDI is fitted with a 4-way DIP switch to select the video output modes on the FCB-EV cameras. Refer to the datasheet for additional information.

Notes:

  1. The DIP switch setting will only change the video output mode on cameras that natively support the video mode stated in the table. For cameras that do not support the stated video mode, the DIP switch setting is ignored and the camera will continue to operate in the current video mode.
  2. External (VISCA): The camera mode is changed by a VISCA serial commands, followed by a Reset.
  3. The DIP switches to select the mode are read on power up only. Therefore, to change mode, set the switches and then power cycle / power up the camera.

Status LED (LED1)

The Active FCB-EV-HD-SDI is fitted with multi-LED to indicate camera status.

Solid Green: Camera and interface board are powered and the camera is sending valid video data.

Solid Red: Interface board is powered but no valid data is being received from the camera. This would typically indicate that the 30-way video cable (J4) is not correctly connected.

Conformance

HD-SDI:

Active FCB-EV-HD-SDI is compliant with SMPTE 274M and SMPTE 296M.
