A description of the channel. 30 characters maximum, including spaces. The communications alarm marginal limit at which the channel is declared to be marginal. When this limit is reached, a high priority alarm is generated. A channel barometer monitors the total number of requests and the number of times the controller did not respond or response was incorrect. The barometer increments by 2 or more, depending on the error and decrements for each good call. The default value is 25. Fail Alarm Limit The communications alarm limit at which the channel is declared to have failed. When this barometer limit is reached, an urgent alarm is generated. Set this to double the value specified for the channel Marginal Alarm Limit. Response Time The maximum time, in seconds, the server waits, after issuing a control, for a response from the controller. If there is no response within the specified time, the server raises an alarm. The default is 10 seconds. Exception Scan Rate The rate, in seconds, at which the server automatically scans controllers on the channel. The default is 2 seconds. For more information, see “Scanning guidelines for VideoBloX controllers” on page 22. Diagnostic Scan Rate Item Type Last Modified Last Downloaded The time, in seconds, between diagnostic scans. The default is 60 seconds. Shows the type of channel. Shows the date when the channel was last modified. Shows the date when the channel was last downloaded to the server. 15 3 – DEFINING A CHANNEL, CONTROLLER AND POINTS FOR A VIDEOBLOX CONTROLLER Property Item Number Description The unique item number currently assigned to the channel. You can change the item number if you need to match your current server database configuration. The number must be between 1 and the maximum number of channels allowed for your system. VideoBloX channel Port tab properties The Port tab defines the communication-related properties for the channel. For VideoBloX, the Port Type can be: • • Serial. Select this if the controller on the channel is connected directly to the server. See “Serial port properties” on page 16. TerminalServer. Select this if the controller on the channel is connected to the server through a terminal server. See “Terminal server port properties” on page 16.

In the Controller list, click the VideoBloX controller you want to address. Press F1. The help for the address syntax appears. You can now define the address by typing it (excluding the name of the controller) in the Address box and clicking OK. 21 3 – DEFINING A CHANNEL, CONTROLLER AND POINTS FOR A VIDEOBLOX CONTROLLER Scanning guidelines for VideoBloX controllers VideoBloX controllers use exception scanning, which means that you do not specify a scan rate for each point. Instead, you define a single exception scan rate for the channel (Exception Scan Rate property on the Main tab). This scan rate applies to all points on the channel. At each exception scan rate period, the server polls the VideoBloX controller. The controller replies with all unreported status changes. 22 www.honeywell.com Testing communications and troubleshooting for VideoBloX controllers 4 This section describes how to test communications between VideoBloX controllers and the server, and how to troubleshoot VideoBloX controllers. 23 4 – TESTING COMMUNICATIONS AND TROUBLESHOOTING FOR VIDEOBLOX CONTROLLERS Testing communications with the server You use the VideoBloX controller test utility, vibtst, to test communications between the server and the controller. Prerequisites • You have downloaded the channel and controller definitions from Quick Builder to the server without errors. To test communications: 1 In Station, choose View > System Status > Channels and disable the channel associated with the controller by clearing its Enable check box. (Alternatively, stop the server.) In Windows, choose Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. A Command Prompt window opens. Type vibtst and press ENTER. Follow the directions as prompted. You can select menu option 1 for help. 2 3 4 24 www.honeywell.com TROUBLESHOOTING VIDEOBLOX SCANNING ERRORS Troubleshooting VideoBloX scanning errors If a point detail display shows a bad value (indicated by inverse video): • The controller address might be syntactically valid, but has not been configured in the controller. If the server attempts to: Read an address that is not configured in the controller, the controller responds with a NAK message. Note that these NAK messages do not contribute to the error count of the controller or channel, but are included in the server log. Write to an address that is not configured in the controller, the controller responds with a NAK message. In this case, the server generates an error message which appears in the Alarm Summary. The error also contributes to the controller’s error count, and the NAK messages are included in the server’s error log. If NAK messages occur, check the relevant address in the controller has been configured. • Controller scanning may have failed. - 25 4 – TESTING COMMUNICATIONS AND TROUBLESHOOTING FOR VIDEOBLOX CONTROLLERS 26 www.honeywell.com Configuring CCTV camera control with a VideoBloX controller 5 This section describes how to configure the server-related aspects of your CCTV subsystem, such as how it is controlled from Station. Attention Use the “VideoBloX setup and configuration checklist” on page 9 to guide you through the tasks, and to avoid configuration problems. 27 5 – CONFIGURING CCTV CAMERA CONTROL WITH A VIDEOBLOX CONTROLLER Defining the names of cameras and monitors You can give cameras and monitors names that are meaningful to operators, such as “Entrance lobby” for a camera and “Left monitor” for a monitor. (The VideoBloX controller identifies cameras and monitors by number.) To define the names: 1 2 3 Choose Configure > CCTV > CCTV Defaults to call up the CCTV Default Settings display. Define appropriate names for the cameras and monitors. Set the pan and tilt speeds for each camera to appropriate values between 0 (slowest) and 127 (fastest). 28 www.honeywell.com DEFINING THE DEFAULT CAMERA-TO-MONITOR ASSIGNMENTS Defining the default camera-to-monitor assignments You can specify the default camera-to-monitor assignments—that is the camera signal that is displayed on each monitor. If appropriate you can display the same camera signal on several monitors. (Note that operators can use the CCTV Camera Control display to override the default assignments.) To map cameras to monitors: 1 2 3 4 Choose Configure > CCTV > CCTV Defaults to call up the CCTV Defaults display. Click the View and map monitors to cameras link to call up the VideoBloX CCTV Mapping display. In the Switcher Selection list, click the VideoBloX controller you want to configure. For each monitor, select the camera from the Camera list. 29 5 – CONFIGURING CCTV CAMERA CONTROL WITH A VIDEOBLOX CONTROLLER Customizing Station’s keyboard camera controls This section describes how to customize Station’s key assignments for camera control—that is, the functions that are performed when a user presses the “keypad keys” (the group of keys on the right on a standard keyboard). Attention You only need to perform this task if Station’s default key assignments are not suited to your needs. See “Station’s default key assignments for camera control” on page 33. To customize the key assignments, you must edit the default keypad control entries in C:\Windows\station.ini, using a text editor such as Notepad. The entries are under the “[Application Keys]” section. Note that six entries are required to define the operation of each key: • A set of entries for each of the two key actions: pressing the key, and releasing the key. (That is, the function—such as zooming in—starts when you press the key and stops when you release it.) Three entries for each action, which define: the server task used for camera control (98) and the two parameters that are passed to the task. Keyscan_codeDownLRN=98 Keyscan_codeDownPAR1=2 Keyscan_codeDownPAR2=xx Keyscan_codeUpLRN=98 Keyscan_codeUpPAR1=2 Keyscan_codeUpPAR2=yy • The format of the six entries required for each key is as follows: Where: • • scan_code is the key’s scan code, as specified in Table 1 on page 30. xx and yy are the control function IDs, as specified in Table 2 on page 31.
