    You can expand any VIS3I-328, by fitting up to two optional Visilynx 3 quad cards (Type VIS3-QUAD). In a single VIS3I-328 with 8 monitor outputs, each quad card makes available the equivalent of an additional 4 monitor outputs.

  • Page 11: Enclosure

    Enclosure Fig. 2 VIS3I-328 enclosure The VIS3I-328 enclosure comprises four main parts: Base assembly Cover Front panel Rack mount brackets (optional) The base assembly is fabricated from 1.2 mm zintec sheet with a natural finish. It provides fasteners for mounting the cooling fan and the control card. Cut-outs are provided on the rear panel for the mounting the input/output connectors (see chapter 6.6 Rear panel connections and controls).

  • Page 12: Printed Circuit Boards (pcbs)

    Printed circuit boards (PCBs) The VIS3I-328 contains four printed circuit boards (PCBs) to provide control, configuration, access to the input/output connectors and interfacing to the two option cards. The PCBs are: Control PCB BNC Connector PCB D Connector PCB Slot Expansion PCB The PCBs are fixed within the unit enclosure and are therefore not considered to be user serviceable parts.

    Quad card VIS3-QUAD Only service personnel should open the VIS3I-328, after first disconnecting the CAUTION mains power supply. Fig. 8 Quad card (VIS3-QUAD) Purpose Displays four pictures on a single video output in real time, with each segment controllable as a separate monitor number (see chapter 4 Details for ordering).

  • Page 21: Installation

    Installation Installing option cards You can add one or two quad cards to each VIS3I-328. Each quad card allows any four of the video inputs to that node to be displayed in quad format on a dedicated quad monitor video output.

  • Page 22: Connecting Two Vis3i-328 Units For Expansion

    Connecting two VIS3I-328 units for expansion You can connect two VIS3I-328 units together using a single expansion cable to enlarge the video matrix node to 64 loop-through inputs by 16 outputs. When you connect two units in this fashion, you need to set one unit to be the master unit in the node and connect it to the Visilynx control network.

    Check the contents of the shipping package against the packing note. Connect a PC running VisiPC software The VIS3I-328 incorporates an RS232 Test/Config connector port on the rear panel which allows connection, via a 9-way to 9-way interface lead (Type VIS3- CONF), to a PC for system configuration and testing using the VisiPC software.

  • Page 25: Confirm Software Versions

    8.6.1 Set clock time On a new unit, we recommend that you set the internal clock on the VIS3I-328 to the current PC time. You can do this on the VisiPC (Visilynx 3 Configurator) sub- program. From the Transfer drop-down menu, select Date/Time.

  • Page 26: Visipc Self-test

    8.6.3 VisiPC self-test Start up tests When you start the unit, the VIS3I-328 controller software does the following, without being instructed by VisiPC: Tests the stored program, data and key electronics. Auto-detects the Slave expansion unit and any installed option cards.

  • Page 31: Connecting Alarm Inputs

    Connecting alarm inputs You can connect a total of 128 alarm inputs to a VIS3I-328, making a total of 256 alarms inputs for each expanded node. You can connect Volt-free contacts from external alarm sources directly to the alarm connector on the rear panel of the unit (see Fig. 7).

  • Page 32: Connecting A Vcr/dvr And Multiplexer

    If you need to control the MPXs and VCR/DVRs from the Visilynx keyboard or PCCON remote control input, then you have to connect the VIS3I-328 serial control ports on the rear panel to these devices using RS-232 cables, which must observe the pinouts shown in Tab.

  • Page 33

    To prevent this, tick the Blank All Monitor Text box on the VisiPC (Visilynx3 Configurator) Camera Settings screen for each camera used as a multiplexer or DVR return input. This blanks all the VIS3I-328 text on any monitor to which these cameras are connected.

  • Page 34: Connecting A Quad Card Output To A Video Input

    DVRs generally do not require multiplexers as VCRs do, so you can connect them directly to the VIS3I-328 loop through outputs, as shown. You can also connect multiplexer or DVR monitor outputs back to the VIS3I-328 camera inputs for routing to monitors, also as shown.

  • Page 35: Distributed Video Switching Using A Visiwire Or Pccon Network

    Distributed video switching using a VisiWire or PCCON network You can connect up to 127 nodes, made up of a mixture of VIS3I-328 units, together to form a distributed video switching matrix using the VisiWire or PCCON network system. You make the video connections between the nodes using coaxial cables, or other third-party video transmission systems.

  • Page 36: Determining How Vis3i-328 Unit Nodes Can Be Networked

    Video may pass through one or more 'hop nodes' between camera and ‘monitor nodes’. The number of available serial ports determines the number of other nodes that can be connected to a VIS3I-328 node, because one port is required for each node connection. Type of node...

  • Page 37

    For ease of installation, trunk video and network data cabling always go together. In order to use each VIS3I-328 unit in a network, you need to set up its configuration file using the VisiPC Configurator software. As an example, the changes that are required to the VisiPC Configurator software screens for each of the three units shown in Fig.

Tab. 1 details the serial port connections. Using VisiPC set the serial port function to Remote control input using the IVM remote control (no Bus ID) or IVM remote (Bus ID=Keyboard) protocol as required.

  • Page 46: Maintenance And Service

    10.1 Routine maintenance Cleaning The only routine maintenance task to be conducted on the VIS3I-328 unit is cleaning at regular intervals. The regularity of the cleaning task will depend on the environmental conditions. Strong abrasive detergents should not be used.

  • Page 47: 10.2.3 Fault Indications

    Alarms Alarms are generated by a variety of sources in the CCTV system. Depending on the installation, they are mostly fed to the VIS3I-328, where their actions are determined by the software configuration file. However, in larger installations, some alarms (e.g. rack frame power failure) may be wired directly to an integrated control room.

  • Page 48: System Fault-finding Process

    10.3 System fault-finding process Because of the number of ways you can see a fault of the VIS3I-328, we recommend that you should always follow a predetermined logical process for fault-finding. NOTE The VIS3I-328 must be powered down before you replace any LRU(s).
