_____________________ 2. A unique system ID for each DVR. (You must change the system ID of each DX8100 you connect on a network segment to avoid conflicts. System IDs must start with a letter, can be up to 15 characters long, and cannot contain spaces or special characters.)
Read and keep all instructions, including the Important Safety Instruction sheet that was supplied with your DVR. • When using the networking capabilities of the DX8100, Pelco recommends that each DX8100 Series DVR be connected to a secure, private network. Do not directly connect your DVR to a public network such as the Internet.
FRAME RATE NOTICE REGARDING USER-SELECTED OPTIONS Pelco systems are capable of providing high quality video for both live viewing and playback. However, the systems can be used in lower quality modes, which can degrade picture quality, to allow for a slower rate of data transfer and to reduce the amount of video data stored. The picture quality can be degraded by either lowering the resolution, reducing the picture rate, or both.
16-channel DX8100 to 24 or 32 channels. With or without the channel expansion unit, all of the cameras can now take advantage of the increased frame rate of 2CIF and 4CIF recording. The DX8100 records video up to 480 images per second ips at a maximum CIF image size.
Up to 480 ips recording rate at 320 x 240 resolution (NTSC) • Up to 100 servers in client tree • Connect any five DX8100 servers in a network or any combination of DX8100 and DX8000 DVRs • Network bandwidth throttling •...
MODELS The DX8100 Series DVR is available in various model configurations.

This appendix describes how to connect an analog monitor to the optional DX8108-MUX/DX8116-MUX Card to view real-time video on an analog monitor. The MUX Card also displays real-time video on the VGA monitor. This is accomplished internally to the DX8100 and therefore no external connection is required.
Audio and video inputs are configured in a one-to-one relationship. For example, audio input seven corresponds to video channel seven. The DX8100 accepts up to 32 individual monaural audio inputs. Each input is designed to receive a line-level, analog audio signal that is sampled at a rate of 48 kHz (16 bits) by the DX8108-AUD’s digital analog converters (DAC).
DX8100’s audio inputs. In most applications, a preamplifier such as the Louroe Electronics ASK-4 be required to boost the signal of a microphone to a level that is acceptable for input into the DX8100. 3. Refer to the DX8100 Operation and Programming manual for information about configuring optional audio recording features.
The DX8100 delivers a line-level monaural signal through a standard 0.125-inch phone jack on the rear panel of the DVR. It is recommended that the audio output of the DX8100 be connected to an amplifier in order to boost the output signal to a level that is sufficient to drive a speaker.
UPS devices that exhibit the Designed for Microsoft Windows XP logo. The following instructions are meant as a general guide for connecting a UPS device to the DX8100 Series DVR. The example below illustrates the installation of an American Power Conversion UPS.
The slider can be adjusted to signal an alarm when UPS battery power falls below the level you select. It is suggested that you set the value that provides at least five minutes of power in order to shut down the DX8100 safely. Refer to the documentation supplied with your UPS to determine the percentage value that will provide at least five minutes of reserve power.

Appendix F: Connecting a KBD300A Keyboard This section describes how to connect the KBD300A keyboard to the DX8100 DVR. The KBD300A allows you to control DX8100 display and camera functions. For example, you can select cameras from the site tree, select view panes and divisions, zoom in and out, and control PTZ operation from the KBD300A keyboard rather than a mouse.
You must set up the KBDKIT first. Figure 100 illustrates how to wire the user-supplied data cable and connect the 12 VAC transform to the wall block. Table G describes the items in the KBDKIT and provides information needed to connect the KBD300A to the DX8100. The only item not included in the KBDKIT is the data cable.
3. Replace the DIP switch cover plate. This concludes the hardware installation phase. Next, you must configure the DX8100 data communications setting for the KBD300A. For more information about setting the DX8100 data communications setting for the KBD300A, refer to the DX8100 Operations and Programming Manual or DX8100 Help.
Appendix G: Connecting ATM/POS Devices DX8100 version 2.0 supports connection to ATM/POS equipment using the AVE VSI-Pro. The VSI-Pro is designed to interface with many different types of cash registers and POS equipment and allows you to program the VSI-Pro to match your register's communications settings. The VSI-Pro handles the data communication between the ATM/POS device and DX8100, providing a standard compatible RS-422/RS-485 and RS-232 interface to the DX8100.
CONNECTING ATM/POS HARDWARE This section describes how to connect ATM/POS devices to the DX8100 server using the VSI-PRO. Direct connection between an ATM/POS device and the DX8100 without using the VSI-PRO is not supported. Go to URL http://www.Americanvideoequipment.com/technical_support/vsi_compatibility.htm to verify that your ATM/POS device is listed in the VSI Compatibility table.
DX8100 as data. Once recorded, the ATM/POS data is searchable and can be displayed synchronously with the recorded transaction video. Figure 104 illustrates a RS-232 ATM/POS device configuration. One or two ATM/POS devices can be connected to the DX8100. One camera is shown, but multiple cameras can be assigned to monitor the ATM/POS event from different physical positions.
In this configuration, the camera is connected directly to the DX8100 camera input. The ATM/POS data from each ATM/POS device is routed through its respective VSI-PRO to a DX8100 RS-422 port. ATM/POS output is recorded by the DX8100 as data. Once recorded, the ATM/POS data is searchable and can be displayed synchronous with the transaction video.
User-supplied RJ-45 cable that connects the PV140 to Port 1 to 4 of the DX8100 DVR. The cable is constructed with a two-wire pigtail on one end and an RJ-45 plug on the other. For information about the RJ-45 plug wiring, refer to Figure 11 on page 23.
