CL5400C Video Cross Line Generator

SKU: CL5400C Category:


This product has been replaced by the CL5410 improved version: CL5410 Video Cross Line Generator – MIVS

Precision CrossLine or Crosshair Generators from MicroImage Video Systems are designed for relative size measuring, positioning and size referencing. The CL5400C series is especially helpful in industrial, metallurgical or forensic applications where comparisons in relative position or size are important.

The CL5400C has two X and two Y moveable lines. The lines can be set to black or white and each line can be turned off or on individually. Lines may be changed from solid to serrated with one of 13 serration settings. A lock switch is provided for each of the four controls to prevent accidental movement.

Line movement can be set to fully independent, tracking mode or mirror mode with front panel switches. In tracking mode, one control moves the position of both lines (without affecting spacing) and the other sets the spacing between lines by moving only one line. In mirror mode, one control moves the position of both lines (without affecting spacing) and the other sets the spacing between lines by moving one line in each direction (maintaining the center point).

The user may choose between line mode or box mode. In line mode, the lines extend to the full height or width of the screen while in box made, the lines are cropped to form a box. When switching between line and box mode, the line positions do not change.

RS232 remote control and query capability is included on all CL5400C series CrossLine models. The unit may be controlled or queried by a computer RS-232 port. The MicroImage Control Language used for this unit is simple to understand and easy to implement in custom programs, using ASCII characters. Virtually all functions can be controlled by the computer. The computer can also query the CrossLine Generator for line position as well as switch and mode settings.

This CrossLine model incorporates a state of the art digitally generated line system which maximizes precision and repeatability without any internal adjustments. The lines are generated with square pixels to maintain the correct aspect ratio. The high quality, sealed, multi-turn optical encoders allow the lines or box to be moved over the entire image area with maximum accuracy. The optical encoders allow a very high degree of precision without any of the jitter commonly associated with multi-turn potentiometer controls. Even after aging several years, the optical encoders maintain their performance and remain free of jitter, while the older potentiometer based technology used by others typically become noisier which appears as additional jitter. The CL5400A improves over the CL5400 with higher resolution, sealed optical encoders.

The CL5400C is designed to work with a variety of video standards; S-Video, composite or B&W video signals. The unit will automatically lock to the proper input signal. It will automatically detect NTSC/RS170 mode and PAL/CCIR modes, adjusting itself accordingly to each standard. CL5400C series models utilize a +12VDC power supply and can be used in mobile applications. Board level, units without controls and other models are available for OEM applications.

A Rack mounting kit is available as an option. RoHS products are available for those countries that require units with RoHS compliance. RoHS units are lead-free.

The CL5400C is available completely packaged (cased) or as a board level product for OEM applications. Power is provided by a universal desktop power supply (included with cased products) or it can be operated from +12VDC (negative ground). Board level products do not include the power supply and a 12VDC power source must be provided.  The unit is packaged in a durable metal enclosure with plastic end bezels. Board Level, OEM and Custom products are also available. Please contact MicroImage Engineering for additional information.

The CL5400C has a one year parts and labor limited warranty.
