Adjusting the Variable Field Illumination
6.5.1
Adjusting the LED Tilt Angle
21
You can orient the LED array tilted either up or down to maximize infrared coverage over the
field of view. On the rear of the camera housing is graphic for the LED tilt.
Figure 6.6
LED tilt scale
The “+” symbol indicates adjusting the LED tilt angle above the camera axis; and the “-”
symbol indicates adjusting the LED tilt angle below the camera axis.
As a general guideline, when the camera is pointed at a steeper angle down (usually at higher
installation heights or for shorter range applications), the LED tilt angle should be raised
above the camera axis to reduce the potential of overexposure in the foreground.
6.5.2
Adjusting the Illumination Beam Width
You can adjust the infrared beam width by adding or removing the 3D diffuser. The 3D diffuser
is recommended for wider field of view applications. With the 3D diffuser, a focal length of 6
mm provides a horizontal field of view of 43° to match the illumination pattern; the resulting
beam angle is 43° (H) x 10° (V). Without the 3D diffuser, a focal length of 27 mm (or greater)
provides a horizontal field of view of 10° (or less) to match the illumination pattern; the
resulting beam angle is 10° (H) x 10° (V). Each camera ships a 3D diffuser plate (already
installed in the camera.) and the 3D diffuser (not installed in the camera). When inserted, the
3D diffuser will be held in place by the diffuser plate.
To install the 3D diffuser:
1.
Unscrew the four (4) captive screws beneath the illuminator in the front of the unit
(circled in Figure 6.7, below).
Figure 6.7 3D Diffuser (area circled)
2.
Using the captive screws, remove the 3D diffuser plate.
3.
Insert the 3D diffuser into the slit in the gasket on the 3D diffuser plate.
IMPORTANT: Ensure that the diffuser is inserted into the camera housing with the sticker
side facing the LED array. It is important that the diffuser is oriented with the sticker side
surface facing the LED array or IR performance will be lost.
4.
Install the diffuser and plate assembly into the camera housing to secure and seal the
unit.

Pre-defined modes
There are six pre-defined modes with settings to make configuration easier. You can select
one of the six pre-defined modes in the Install/Mode submenu. The modes are defined as
follows:
1.
24-hour
Default installation mode to provide stable pictures over a 24-hour period. These settings
are optimized for out-of-the-box installation.
2.
Traffic
Capture high-speed objects using default shutter in variable lighting conditions.
3.
Low light
Provide extra enhancement such as AGC and SensUp to make usable pictures in low-light
conditions.
4.
Smart BLC
Settings optimized to capture details in high contrast and extremely bright-dark
conditions.
5.
Low noise
Enhancements are set to reduce picture noise. Useful for conditional refresh DVR and IP
storage systems because reducing noise reduces the amount of storage required.
6.
Infrared
Settings are configured to provide optimal imaging performance in low-light or no-light
conditions.
7.3
Camera control communication (Bilinx)
This camera is equipped with a coaxial communications transceiver (also referred to as
Bilinx). In combination with VP-CFGSFT, the camera setting can be changed from any point
along the coaxial cable. All menus can be accessed remotely giving full control of the camera.
With this method of communication it is also possible to disable the local keys on the camera.
To avoid loss of communication on an installed camera, the Communication On/Off selection
is not available while using remote control. This function can only be accessed with the
camera buttons. Bilinx communications can only be disabled using the buttons on the camera.
Disabled camera buttons
When the Bilinx communications link is active, the buttons on the camera are disabled.
