3.10.1 Termination resistors for IEC 61162-2 interfaces (RS-422)


The termination resistor for the last IEC 61162-2 interface
on the cable must be switched on. The switch (S2), which
controls the termination resistors, is located on the main
PCB for the serial module for a DM300 and on the front
to the left on the DM200. The switch in default is set to
the “off” position for termination resistors as shown in the
picture.

Termination resistors for the IEC 61162-2 interfaces

3.11 IAS
The VDR is equipped with an interface for an Integrated Alarm System (IAS). The IAS interface is
based on a relay which is energized when the VDR is operational and when no errors are detected.
Two outputs are available:

NC to C Closed (≈ 0 ohm) when the VDR is fully


operational and no errors are detected otherwise
open

NO to C Open (>10 Mohm) when the VDR is fully


operational and no errors are detected otherwise
closed

The relay is rated to 1A@24V

3.12 Video interface (analog video)


Use five individual RG59 (75Ω) cables or a high quality 5-way 75Ω coaxial video cable. The cables
must be terminated with 75Ω BNC connectors at the DAU.

The video interface is compatible with the VGA/VESA family. Separate sync (5-way) and sync on
green (composite) are supported.

The maximum supported resolution:


UXGA: 1600x1200 @60Hz (note 1)

SXGA: 1280x1024 @85HZ

Note 1) resolutions above 1024x1280 may require (non-standard) extended memory in the capsule.

3.12.1 Signal levels


Analog input range (R, G, B): 0,5V –1,0V

Digital levels (H/V sync): Low <0,8V


High > 2,5V

3.13 System startup after installation

1) Unplug all cables to the DPU except for the cable to the PSU (DM300 only). A VGA monitor
may be connected to the VGA port on the DPU.

2) Make sure that the cable between the PSU and the DPU is secured with screws (DM300 only).
Push the AC breaker on the PSU and the system will start. Check that the AC indicator LED is
illuminated and that the “DC for DPU” LED is illuminated shortly after. The error LED on the DPU
will become RED while the DPU is booting. This may take up to one minute. The boot process can
be followed if a VGA display is connected to the VGA port on the DPU. The DPU will display
“999” and “123” shortly when the boot process is finished. “---” will be displayed while the system
is performing a self test. The DPU will end up displaying a number of error codes when it has
determined that e.g. the BAU is missing (error code 030)

3) Push the DC breaker and check that the DC indicator LED is illuminated (DM300 only).

4) Push the Battery breaker and check that the Battery indicator LED is illuminated.

5) If no VGA display is connected then connect a PC) to Ethernet port 1 and utilize the WEB status
image (see section 4.11)

6) Pop out all power breakers. Connect all cables expect for the cable to the capsule and restart the
system running on AC only. Use a VGA display or the WEB status image (see section 4.11) to

For interlaced video where only resolution and field frequency* are known find pixel rate using this
table and divide it by 2. Use this number to determine the code for pixel rate. E.g. 1024x768, field
frequency = 76Hz. Pixel rate from table +78.750 ≈ 80.000/2 = 40.000 ⇒ Code for pixel rate = 6.
* Combined frequency for even and odd fields, which is also equal to vertical sync frequency. The vertical sync
frequency is one of the data items in the front-end data (see section 4.9.1).

Save image to WEB


This parameter should be set to “image not saved” for a configured system.
This parameter should be set to PNG while the system is being calibrated.

Color mask
Determines how many different colors are recognized. Should be set to match the color depth of the
radar. Too many bits will make the image compression ineffective and may cause data overflow in
the capsule (error code 88-94). Most radars work fine with 9 bits.

Contrast RGB
Used for changing the contrast of the captured radar images.

Brilliance RGB
Used for changing the brilliance of the captured radar images.

4.9.2 Automatic calibration of radar image


Notice:
Not supported if a VIDEO 02-001 module is installed in the DPU.
Disable VD 2 (inactivate) while VD 1 is being configured and calibrated
Disable VD 1 (inactivate) while VD 2 is being configured and calibrated
(Remember to activate the disabled channel after the last channel is configured and calibrated)

The VDR is under normal circumstances able to perform an automatic image calibration. The radar
must be switched on and set to display a stable image. When calibration channel 1 disable channel 2
or disconnect the video signal to channel 2 and vice versa.

4.9.2.1 AutoSync search-modes for VIDEO 02-002 and VIDEO 02-003


Full: The radar is required to display a normal radar image or a test image. A full search will take
approximately 30 minutes.

Quick: The radar is required to display a test image with distinct vertical information. A quick
search will take approximately 10 minutes.

Parametric: The radar is required to display a normal radar image or a test image. It is possible to
pre-define known information e.g. the pixel rate in order to speed up the process and increase the
probability of success. However the calibration will not be correct if incorrect values are pre-
defined.

4.9.2.1.1 Progress Display for VIDEO 02-002 and VIDEO 02-003


The progress will be displayed while AutoSync is searching. The acquired radar image will be
displayed when the search is complete. Please check that the image corresponds to what is
displayed on the radar.

4.9.3 Manual calibration of a radar image


Click on the test button and wait until the new image is grabbed.

Image before calibration

The video channel is calibrated correctly if the image is sharp, exactly covers the black area and if
the colors, brilliance and contrast are ok. This image needs to be shifted up and to the right; it also
needs to become wider. Colors, brilliance and contrast appear to be ok.

Notice: If the background color for the captured radar image is black then decrease the contrast gain
and brilliance offset until the background becomes gray, or even better configure the radar to send
out a test image with background which is not black.

If the image already covers the black area at the beginning of the calibration process then it might
already fit.
Shift the image slightly to the left by increasing the value for horizontal offset by one and check that
a black vertical line appear to the right of the image
Shift the image slightly to the right by decreasing the value for horizontal offset by two (one from
the original value) and check that a black vertical line appears to the left of the image. The image
fits the black area if both black lines appear; remember to revert to the original value for horizontal
offset.
If above test reveals that the image is too large then it must be made smaller by decreasing the value
for the PLL multiplier.

4.9.4 Hints for calibrating an unknown radar


Use as much information as possible from the “frame grabber front-end data”.
Set horizontal and vertical offset to low values.
Try different values for PLL multiplier until a stable image appears.

is very simple.

Click on “Start” and the current horizontal and vertical resolution will be transferred to the
configuration and can be saved at the end of the calibration process. Check that the resolution of the
image correspond to what is expected for the radar.
Please notice that the VDR will generate an alarm (error code 180-183) if the resolution of the
image later changes (the radar images will still be recorded).

Check the quality of the acquired radar image which appears in a separate browser window (if no
image appears click on the “Test”).

Click on “Submit” and horizontal and vertical resolution will be saved.

It is possible to store additional 15-30 days of VDR data on the removable VDR data disc located in
a DM300/DM500 DAU. This will not affect the capability of the system to store 3 incidents.

4.13.3.2 Extended internal backup for DM200 and DM400


It is possible to store additional 8-40 days of VDR data on the removable VDR data disc (the USB
stick) located in a DM200/DM400 DAU. This requires a USB stick with a minimum capacity of
64GB (non standard). Enabling this feature will not affect the capability of the system to store 3
incidents.

4.13.3.3 Extended external backup


It is possible to store many month of VDR data on an external hard drive (Ethernet NAS). 120 GB
of disc capacity is sufficient for 30-60 days of data.

5 Service and maintenance


5.1 Annual inspection (APT)
The VDR requires an annual inspection APT carried out by a certified service organization.

5.1.1 Analysis of the system log


The VDR is able to recover from a number of problems. Alarms will not be displayed if the
magnitude of the problems is below a safe level where the VDR is able to record data normally.
However, it is important that the “healthiness” of the VDR is checked as part of the APT. A system
log analyzing tool for that purpose is embedded in the VDR.

The best and most unambiguous result of the analysis is obtained if 3 month of log from a VDR
which has been operating uninterrupted for more than 3 months is investigated. It is therefore
recommended that the log is analyzed at the beginning of the APT.

Login to the VDR as supervisor

On the main menu select the “Tech support” section

Select the “Storage Analyzer”

Legend:
• White: No errors detected at all.
• Green: Very few errors have been detected.
• Yellow: Errors have been detected but below a safe level – visually inspect the VDR i.e. the cable to the capsule and that the backup
disc/USB stick is securely fixed.
• Red: Too many errors have been detected – the VDR need to be repaired.

Brief explanation to above analysis


The capsule was removed from the VDR for approximately 10 minutes, consequently “Cannot find
device” was logged. The VDR tried to recover from the problem twice without success,
consequently two “Device recovery failure” was logged. One hot plug event was triggered and
logged when the capsule was removed and the two device recoveries triggered 8 hot plugs (4 each).
Finally, re-connecting the capsule triggered one hot plug event.
