Wireless Safety
The Heimdall detector hardware is a radar device.
This product does emit RF signals which are below the statuary requirements. However,
it is recommended that precautions are taken to reduce prolonged exposure when
operating directly in front of the Heimdall antenna area.
The Heimdall detectors may also include a wireless device which will only transmit when
a wireless connection is made from authorised maintenance personnel using Siecom
software. When connected to Siecom, the wireless transmitter within the plastic case
should have a separation of at least 20cm between the case and the body of the user or
nearby persons, excluding hands, wrists, feet and ankles.
Safety of Road Users
It is important that all personnel are aware of the dangers to road users that could arise
during repair and maintenance of traffic control equipment.
Ensure that the junction area is coned and signed as necessary to warn motorists and
pedestrians of any dangers and to help protect the personnel working on the site.
Personnel should also ensure the safety of pedestrians, especially children, who may
come into contact with parts of the signal poles.

2 GENERAL DETECTOR INFORMATION
2.1 The Heimdall Detector
The Heimdall series of above ground detectors incorporates ‘state of the art’ radar
antenna designs, tailored to the specific requirement of a range of detector operations.
The range includes On Crossing, Kerbside, a range of Vehicle Approach, SCOOT &
MOVA and Stop Line Data detectors.
The detector is housed in a low profile enclosure to minimise ‘eye clutter’.

the detector status. The LED will be ON for the detect state.
The LED indicator is built into the side access door, which may be fitted so that it either
faces forwards (towards on-coming traffic) or backwards (away from on-coming traffic)
dependant on detector type - see section 5.
Interface Cable – UK variant only
Detectors are supplied with a standard interface cable fitted with a Bulgin Buccaneer
connector – see section 4.5.
Configuration DIP Switches
All detectors are fitted with configuration DIP switches.
Refer to the detailed detector specification (section 5) and commissioning section
(section 6) for detailed explanation of these configuration facilities.

4.6 Electrical Connections: Export Variant
4.6.1 General
The export variants of the Heimdall detectors are not supplied with the captive lead and
standard 9 pin ‘Buccaneer’ connector. Instead the interfacing with the Heimdall detector
is via the supplied ‘internal’ interface wiring block connector as shown in Figure 9.
Terminal 1
Figure 9 : Internal Interface Connector
To access the connector, the four fixing screws on the lid must be undone. Care should
be taken when removing the fixing screws as they are captive and are held by a sealing
grommet. Destruction of the grommet may reduce the IP rating of the Siemens product.
This connector should be terminated in accordance with the details shown in sections
below.
Note 1: Particular attention should be paid to the correct termination of the power
supply wires. Terminal 1 should be used for the POSITIVE AC/DC supply feed and
Terminal 2 for the NEGATIVE supply return.
Note 2: When installing this detector with a 24 AC source, please ensure the 24 AC
source is derived from an earthed secondary transformer (as used in standard
traffic installations).
Note 3: When using 24 AC supply, only use battery powered interface equipment
(e.g. laptop, PDA). Do not connect mains powered/connected equipment to the
Heimdall series of detectors, as this will cause the detectors to fail.
Note 4: When installing this detector with a Siemens ELV controller or a Siemens
ELV controller additional supply, please ensure the RED wire of the interface cable
is connected to the POSITIVE (common) connector, the BLACK wire is connected
to the NEGATIVE (-24VDC) source and the GREEN (screen) is connected to the
POSITIVE (common) connector.

4.7 Alignment Features
The Heimdall detectors have two built-on features which help with alignment - angle
markings and ‘gun-sight’.
4.7.1 Angle Markings
The Heimdall detector mounting-base has a series of markings which denote 5 degree
angle steps. An installer may use these as an aid to alignment, with regards to detector
angle.
The Heimdall detector body has an arrow which lines up with one of several notches that
are moulded onto the mounting-base (see Figure 11). To make the setting easier, every
third notch is larger (major) than the intervening (minor) notches.
With the arrow lined up with the first major notch (the one nearest to the rear of the
detector) the angle of the detector is zero (horizontal). The next two minor notches are 5
degrees and 10 degrees from horizontal (detector tilted forwards). The next major notch
will align the detector to 15 degrees from the horizontal.
Arrow currently
pointing at the 25
degree mark.
Arrow here means
detector is horizontal
(zero degrees)
Figure 11 – Angle Notches on Heimdall Detector
It should be noted that these angles are all in relation to the mounting surface of the
detector which is not necessarily the same as that of the road surface.

4.8 General Detector Configuration Facilities
4.8.1 DIP Switches
All Heimdall detectors are equipped with switches that enable the unit to be installed, for
the majority of applications, without the need for any special terminal (handset)
equipment.
Access to these switches is gained by removal of the side access door. This comes with
a ‘built-in’ retention mechanism to prevent it falling to the ground when removed from the
body. Before removal, make a note of the cover’s orientation and ensure it is replaced the
same way round (refer to appropriate detector specification (section 5) for orientation).
The switches on the PCB nearest the front of the detector (Digital Processor Board)
control the basic functions of the detector and are described in more detail in the
appropriate sections (5.x) of this handbook. This switch is referred to, throughout this
document, as the ‘Detector Configuration DIP Switch’.
The switches provided on the PCB nearest the rear of the detector (Special I/O Board)
control the operation of the Siemens Serial Interface (SiTOS). This switch is referred to,
throughout this document, as the ‘SITOS Interface board DIP Switch’.
For applications that require communication with a SiTOS enabled controller (or any
SiTOS enabled master communications device)1, this will require the SiTOS enabled
detector to be enabled for SiTOS communications. The Detector Configuration DIP
switch 8 is used to control this mode of working.

4.8.2 Terminal Interface
All Heimdall detectors are equipped with a terminal interface that will enable the unit to be
configured with a terminal interface. The use of a terminal interface cable is required.
Access to the terminal interface is gained by removal of the side access door. This comes
with a ‘built-in’ retention mechanism to prevent it falling to the ground when removed from
the body. Before removal, make a note of the cover’s orientation and ensure it is replaced
the same way round (refer to appropriate detector specification (section 5) for
orientation).
4.8.3 Priority of configuration
Since the detector can be configured using the DIP switches, terminal interface and/or
the SiTOS there is a hierarchy which is defined as follows;
If the Digital Processor board dip switch SW8 is set to ‘0’ –
DIP switches SW1 to SW7 have full control of the detector configuration settings.
The terminal handset has no write access, with the exceptions where the DIP
switch settings allows for terminal settings to be applied. However the user
Terminal will have full read access.
SiTOS has no write or read access.
If the Digital Processor board dip switch SW8 is set to ‘1’ –
SiTOS has full configuration with both read and write access.
The settings of dip switches SW1 to SW7 are ignored.
User Terminal will normally not have any write access.
The exception is the command SME=249 (override command). This has the effect of
temporarily disabling SiTOS access and allowing the terminal to have full write access to
the configuration setting. The temporary period will terminate after 20 minutes of terminal
inactivity.
If SW8 is set to 1, but a SiTOS is not connected, then the (wireless) user terminal will
have full write and read access. The situation occurs since an unconnected SiTOS will
not overwrite the setting applied by the terminal handset.

4.9 Heimdall Serial Communications Installation (SiTOS)
The Heimdall Detector can be equipped with a serial communications facility to enable
the detector status, configuration parameters and vehicle data (if appropriate) to be
requested by a SiTOS enabled host controller (equipment).
This facility utilises the industry standard RS485 two wire serial communication
technique. A number of detectors can be attached to a common pair of wires and can be
interrogated on an individual basis. To achieve this it is necessary to assign a unique
address to each detector on the common pair using the dual-in-line switch located on the
special serial interface card (see Table 4-7 for details).

Table 4-7 – Serial Communication (SiTOS) Configuration Switches
Note: Some DIP switches may be marked with ON/OFF. For the purposes of
definition, OFF is equal to 0 and ON is equal to 1.
Each detector address should be set in accordance with the installation information
supplied with the host equipment. This will also define when the ‘Line Termination’ switch
(SW 1) should be used.

5.1.4 Detector Installation Instructions
5.1.4.1
Detector Position
The detector should normally (first choice) be located on the nearside primary signal pole
(position #1 – ref. Figure 14 below). Alternatively the detector may be fitted on alternative
poles (positions 2 and 3 – ref. Figure 14 below) if circumstances dictate. The following
factors may influence position:
Line of sight obstruction such as signs, trees etc.
More than two lanes on approach - one required on nearside pole and one on
offside.
Road layout permits better aim from offside pole.
Cabling requirements.
Please ensure the installation location of the detector is clear from obstructions, such as
signs, trees etc. such that there is a clear line of sight from the detector to the road.
Failure to adhere to this recommendation will reduce detector performance.
5.1.4.2
Detector Height
The detector may be mounted at any height between 3.3 m and 4 m.
5.1.4.3
Detector Angle
The initial installation angle will change depending on the installation height and road
surface angle. For the standard 10 m to 35 m range, as a guide, the angle may be pre-set
to:
25 degrees from horizontal

This duration can be adjusted to a user defined value by setting DIP Switch 7 to ‘1’ (On)
and then using the terminal command DFM (reference section 7.7.4).
5.3.4.7
Output Hold Time
The detector continues to hold the detector output for a default period of 1000mS after
actual object detection has ceased. This can be adjusted to an extended and user
defined period by setting DIP Switch 5 to ‘1’ (On) and using the terminal command DHT
(reference section 7.7.4).

5.4.4.4
Detector Alignment
The detectors should be ‘aimed’ at a position approximately 1.5 metres from the
associated ‘stop line’, toward oncoming traffic, as shown in Figure 17 below.
Figure 17 – Stop Line Detector Installation – Plan View
5.4.4.5
Maximum Presence Time
The maximum presence time attribute defines the period of continuous detection before
the detector tunes the stationary object and detection returns to normal. The default
setting is for a period of 4 minutes. However if adjustment is required, DIP switch 5 can
set the maximum presence time to 30 minutes. Alternatively, if a user defined value is
required, the terminal command MPT can be set to the user defined variable (reference
section 7.7.4).
5.4.4.6
Detection Method
The default setting for the detector is such that both static and moving vehicles are
detected. However, the user may modify the detector so that moving vehicles are filtered
from the detection output. This setting can be modified using DIP switch 5 or by using the
terminal command MVA (reference section 7.7.4).
5.4.4.7
Detector Fault Monitor (DFM)
The detector has a fault monitor function. In the default mode, the detector will generate a
fault output (equivalent to a permanent detect) if the detector has not registered an
activation for a period of twenty hours.
This duration can be adjusted to a user defined value by setting DIP Switch 7 to ‘1’ (On)
and then using the terminal command DFM (reference section 7.7.4).

5.5.4 Detector Installation Instructions
5.5.4.1
Detector Position
The detector should be located on a suitable mounting pole located alongside the
detection zone.
Please ensure the installation location of the detector is clear from obstructions, such as
signs, trees etc. such that there is a clear line of sight from the detector to the road.
Failure to adhere to this recommendation will reduce detector performance.
5.5.4.2
Detector Height
The detector should be located on a suitable mounting pole located alongside the
detection zone. The detector may be mounted at any height between 3.4 and 8m, with
the 4m height considered optimum. Ensure that the appropriate height range has been
selected, using the appropriate DIP switches, as detailed in section 5.5.5 or using the
appropriate terminal command DMH.
The equivalent loop length, along direction of travel, will vary depending on installation
height, thus:
4m – equivalent loop size 1.8m
6m – equivalent loop size 2.3m
8m – equivalent loop size 2.7m
The factory default is for installation heights ~4.0m.

5.5.4.3
Detector Angle
The initial installation angle will change depending on the installation height. As a guide
these are listed as:
4m – 50 degrees from horizontal
6m – 75 degrees from horizontal
8m – 85 degrees from horizontal
Reference section 4.7.1 for instructions on how to pre-set mounting angle
5.5.4.4
Detector Angle for Second Lane Detection
The initial installation angle will change depending on the installation height. In order to
maintain a reasonable line-of-sight it is expected that second lane detection will require at
least 6m installation height as a minimum. As a guide these are listed as:
6m – 50 degrees from horizontal
8m – 75 degrees from horizontal
Reference section 4.7.1 for instructions on how to pre-set mounting angle
5.5.4.5
Detector Alignment - Default
The detector default setup uses a static detection algorithm. The detector is aimed
perpendicular to the traffic flow and just below the centre of the carriageway, as shown in
Figure 18 below. To use this installation method, ensure DIP switch 6 is set to ‘0’, or
using the appropriate terminal command ‘DAA’ is set to ‘0’1. This is factory default.
For optimum performance, it is recommended that this alignment is used.

5.5.4.6
Detector Alignment – Optional
With this optional method, the detector uses a combined ‘movement and static’ detection
algorithm. In this case the detector is aimed slightly towards oncoming traffic and towards
the centre of the centre of the carriageway, as shown in Figure 19 below.
To use this installation method, use configuration DIP switch 6 (set to ‘1’), or using the
appropriate terminal command ‘DAA’ set to ‘1’, to activate the combined ‘movement and
static’ detection algorithm1.
For optimum performance, this alignment is not recommended. However, this alignment
can be used where the users would prefer to limit detection to vehicles moving towards
the detector and a drop in detection performance is acceptable. This may also be of use
on installations, for example, with very narrow lanes.

5.6.4 Detector Installation Instructions
5.6.4.1
Detector Position
Each detector must be aimed at the opposite kerb as shown in Figure 24 below.
There must be no obstruction between the front face of the detector and the detection
zone, i.e. no obstruction by backing boards or signal aspects. Failure to adhere to this
recommendation will reduce detector performance.
The detector should normally (first choice) be located on the offside primary signal pole
(ref. Figure 24 ). Alternatively the detector may be fitted on other poles if circumstances
dictate. The following factors may influence position:
Line of sight obstruction such as signs, trees etc.
Road layout permits better aim from offside pole.
Cabling requirements.
If the detector is installed alongside a Heimdall kerbside detector, using the standard
Kerbside Mounting Bracket, it can be installed on one of the mounting holes halfway
along its length. This is only recommended for thin crossings as the bracket can part
mask wider installations. If this is the case a kerbside extension bracket can be used to
move the on crossing detector to a better position.

actual object detection has ceased. This can be adjusted to an extended period of
2000mS by setting DIP Switch 5 to ‘1’ (On).
5.6.4.8
Installation and Commissioning Guide
Once the detector has been installed the crossing coverage must be tested, this is done
by walking towards the detector.
For ease of use when testing with only one person the ‘Inline Installation Assistance
Cable’, can be used to allow the detect LED to be more visible. The user should
reference Table 9-1 - p105 for part numbers.
(1) From a standing position several feet back from the kerb, walk along each dotted
white line either side of the crossing towards the detector.
(2) The detector should start to detect as you step off of the kerb until you get near to
the opposite side in both cases. If this is not the case re-align detector and start
perform step (1) again.
(3) Again from a standing point several feet back from the kerb, walk the centre of the
crossing towards the detector.
(4) The detector will probably pick you up before you leave the kerb, this is perfectly
normal, and should detect almost all the way across.
(5) Repeat these steps for the opposite detector to ensure the whole crossing is
covered.

5.7.4 Detector Installation Instructions
Note: There must be no obstruction between the front face of the detector and the
detection zone, i.e. no obstruction by backing boards, signal aspects or foliage. Foliage
such as trees and bushes that are within the detection zone, will mean there is a risk of
false detects and possibly Permanent or no detect situations
Failure to adhere to these recommendations will reduce detector performance
5.7.4.1
Standard Detector Installation - Recommended
The standard traffic pole with the head mounted to one side is a suitable installation
scenario, where the aspect (traffic light) is mounted to one side of the detector location
and therefore provides for a clear view of the expected detection area.
In this situation the Kerbside should be mounted with the standard Kerbside mounting
bracket, which ensures the correct mounting distance in front of the nearside. The user
should reference Table 9-1 - p105 for part numbers.
Use of this bracket assumes that the pole has been installed with its mounting holes in
parallel to the kerb; if this is not the case then please see section 5.7.4.3.
Figure 25, below, illustrates the recommended detector and aspect configuration for all
new site installations that require a Heimdall detector Kerbside.

Cranked Pole Installation- Recommended
The Heimdall Kerbside detector can also be installed on a cranked pole. This installation
is also suitable as it ensures the detector has a clear view of the detection area. The
Heimdall Kerbside extension bracket can be used in this scenario. The installer should
reference Table 9-1- p105 for support equipment part numbers.

5.7.4.3
General Detector Installation – Non-Ideal
It is recommended that the standard installation and cranked pole installation is used.
However, if the user requires the general installation details are provided.
The Kerbside detector should be aligned downwards, to cover the area of the kerb
adjacent to the crossing. The normal detector angle (pre-set at factory) is 60 degrees.
The detector must be mounted so that there is no obstruction between the detector and
the detection zone. Failure to adhere to this recommendation can reduce detector
performance.
If the mounting pole has a near-side attached, the Kerbside detector should be mounted
such that it is at least 7cm away from the side of the nearside and at least 9cm in front.
See Figure 30 below.
This is normally achieved by using a standard Kerbside mounting bracket, but the
extension bracket may also assist in meeting the mounting requirements. There are
several mounting positions available on the standard Kerbside Mounting Bracket for the
Kerbside Extension Bracket, two bolts must be used to secure the two together in all
instances.
Failure to meet these mounting requirements may mean the detector will operate nonoptimally and therefore performance specifications are not valid.
Nearside
Unit
Figure 30 : Kerbside Detector Mounting Details
The optimum position for the detector is 0.75m from the edge of the carriageway.
However, distances between 0.5m and 1m can be accommodated.
It should be aligned parallel to the kerb edge and face downwards to the aiming point as
shown in Figure 32 below.

5.7.4.4
Detector Height
The detector can be mounted at any height between 3.3m and 4m.
5.7.4.5
Detector Alignment – Default
The detector is aimed at an angle of 60 degrees from the horizontal, as shown in Figure
32 below. Adjustment of this angle is not recommended and will impact on detection
performance.
Arrow pointing to
60 degrees
(Four Large
Notches)
Figure 31 : Angle Notches in Heimdall Detector
The detector should point along the line of the kerb from its installed position; this should
allow detection up to and over the kerb.
At the closest point to the detector the zone is wider to take in the tactile paving, while the
thinner end of the detection zone stretches out to the end of the zone (Maximum 4m).
This can be altered using the DIP switch 6 under the side access panel, OFF is Long
zone (default) while ON shortens the end part of the zone for thinner crossings.
In Figure 32 the zone is shown with the wider part nearest the detector extending into the
road. This would pick up vehicles though the Heimdall software filters these out. This filter
has the side effect of making the near zone smaller, DIP switch 1 can be switched to 1 to
disable this filter in situations where the vehicle filter is not required and a wider near
zone is desirable.

5.7.4.6
Detection Length
In standard installations, the detector is normally set such that detection can occur at
distances up to 4.5m from the mounting pole. The will be adequate for most crossing
widths. However, some crossing widths are significantly shorter. DIP switch 6, can be
used to reduce the detection range to a region of approximately 2.5m from the mounting
pole.
5.7.4.7
Vehicle Detection
The detector uses various detection algorithms to eliminate false detection due to
vehicles. If the detector is to be installed in locations where vehicle detection is not
considered and issue, the detection can have its detection sensitivity increased slightly
by using DIP switch 1. It should be noted that the recommended setting will be with the
vehicle detection algorithm activated (DIP Sw1 OFF).
5.7.4.8
Detector Fault Monitor (DFM)
The detector has a fault monitor function. In the default mode, the detector will generate a
fault output (equivalent to a permanent detect) if the detector has not registered an
activation for a period of twenty hours.
This duration can be adjusted to a user defined value by setting DIP Switch 7 to ‘1’ (On)
and then using the terminal command DFM (reference section 7.7.4).

5.7.4.9
Site Calibration
The Kerbside Detector needs to be calibrated to the background noise for each site
before it can work to its optimum performance. This calibration needs to be carried out
for any changes of the detectors orientation or other changes to street furniture on the
pole or in the zone.
The Kerbside will store the calibration information in flash memory so in event of the
detector losing power it will have the same background information on power up. This
background information will be updated during long periods of inactivity in the zone (at
least 10 minutes) and would normally occur over night.
Once installed and aligned the following steps need to be carried out for the initial site
calibration:
(1) In order to allow for single person installation, or where there is no switch to turn off
the detector supply from the controller; connect the ‘Inline Installation Assistance
Cable’ (see section 9.1 of the manual).
(2) Remove the side door and toggle switch 5 (off – on – off), replace side door (detect
LED will be flashing)
(3) Move all equipment (Ladders etc.) away from zone and pole.
(4) Ensure that the zone is clear of pedestrians and that no vehicles are passing (Use of
push buttons to stop traffic is recommended).
(5) Cycle the power to the detector using the ‘Inline Installation Assistance Cable’ or by
other means if not used.
(6) Calibration will take approx. 10s, during which time both the detect LED and the
output LED on the ‘Inline Installation Assistance Cable’ will flash several times.
(7) If the zone has been empty during this time the detectors calibration will be complete
and the Zone needs to be tested.
Note: When using the Inline Installation Assistance Cable the LED will not work properly
if the unused core for the detector relay is attached to ground in the pole top
termination. This must be “Floating”, wired in to a terminal on its own to allow the LED to
operate.
5.7.4.10 Commissioning Steps
When the site calibration is complete the zone needs to be tested to ensure coverage
and detection is acceptable. If the zone testing is not acceptable the detector will need to
be re-aligned and recalibrated before testing again.
(1) If you are using the ‘Inline Installation Assistance Cable’, position it so you can view
the LED from anywhere in the zone. If you have a second person to assist, ensure
that they are positioned outside the detection zone.
(2) Standing sideways to the detector (facing the road) move along the kerb stopping on
every other tactile paving slab for approx. 10s ensuring that the detector holds. Brief
moments of non- detect are quite normal but the detector should predominantly hold
on while you are in the zone.

(3) Do the same next to the push button and at various points in the expected zone.
(4) When you’re happy with the performance of the detector, remove the ‘Inline
Installation Assistance Cable’ if fitted and plug the detector back in. The detector will
use the previously calibrated values when it starts back up.
(5) In cases where the detector is not performing as required, check alignment and
make adjustments before performing the Site calibration and zone testing again.
In cases where the detector does not hold people in the zone, or where there are places
in the zone which do not appear to detect; re-alignment of the detector will be required.
On a “Standard Installation” where the standard Kerbside Mounting Brackett has been
used, it may require repositioning using a Kerbside Extension Bracket. See section
5.7.4.3 for details of non- standard installations and check the distances from the
nearside unit.
Where the zone edge along the kerb has poor performance then the detector can be
angled in toward the road to fill this area in.

6 COMMISSIONING
6.1 General Installation Check
The detector should have been installed as detailed in Section 4 and Section 5, which
include the appropriate adjustments for the tilt / alignment to the specific point on the
road surface or crossing area.
Before applying power to the Detector, ensure that the following checks are undertaken:
Detector power leads are connected to the correct terminals within the pole;
The correct detector relay outputs are used. For a standard detector (UK
Variant) these are usually blue and white (i.e. closed for detect);
The detector basic configuration dual-in-line switch located on the Digital PCB
has been set correctly (refer to the sections specific to the detector).
Note: In most instances the default setting, all off (0), will be the correct setting, unless
special circumstances apply. See the specific installation instructions for each particular
detector to determine the correct setting.
The Serial Communications interface terminations (if required) are connected to
the appropriate signal leads within the pole;
The Serial Communications interface Address Switch (if applicable) has been
set to the correct address for that particular communications line to the
associated controller (see Controller Configuration documentation).
The wireless interface MAC address label (if supplied) is stored in a suitable
location (e.g. the nearest traffic controller cabinet).

6.2 Final Commissioning Procedures
Power is applied to the unit and the operation of the detector observed by looking at the
output from the indicator LED which is visible on the side door. If necessary, adjustment
can be made to the alignment by:
(1) ‘Slackening off’ the mounting nut slightly,
(2) Making the minor adjustment whilst, at the same time, observing the detector
operation by looking at the LED;
(3) Re-tighten the mounting nut.
The controller’s input status should then be checked to ensure the detector signal is
connected as required.
Ensure the detector configuration access door is replaced correctly. Refer to
appropriate detector specification (reference 5).

7 HANDSET INTERFACE
7.1 Terminal (Emulator) and a Cable Serial Interface
Either a PC or a PDA, in conjunction with appropriate terminal software1, may be used
as a terminal.
The terminal (either PC or PDA) should be connected to the Serial Interface connector
on the detector using a suitable serial interface cable (667/1/31962/000).
The Detector communicates at 19200 baud using 8 data bits with no parity bit, one stop
bit (8,N,1) and no ‘Flow Control’.
When the Terminal is connected and the ‘return’, ‘enter’ or ‘CR/LF’ key pressed a
number of times ‘SIEMENS’ should be displayed together with a prompt character ‘>’
indicating that the terminal has been recognised and is awaiting a user commend.
The user command tables can be found in section 7.7.
7.2 Siecom and a Wireless / Cable Serial Interface
The Heimdall detector can be accessed by a wireless device using the SIEMENS
Siecom Terminal application (part number 667/1/30875/000).
The following instructions assume the Siecom software has been installed on a PC or
PDA, as required. For detailed Siecom installation details please refer to the Siecom
users Handbook (reference section 0).
It is recommended that the appropriate Heimdall detector Equipment Definition File
(EDF - 667/YK/31977/001) has been installed in order to enable access to all
appropriate handset commands.

7.2.2 Site Connection
Once a site file has been successfully opened it is possible to connect to the equipment
by selecting Site
Connect from the menu. For wireless connections this can take a
number of seconds especially if the Bluetooth is switched off, and also depending on
the current environmental conditions. It is recommended to start at a close distance for
the first connection to ensure range is not an issue. Generally once the connection is
established the range can be increased to a point beyond that at which an initial
connection could be achieved.
If the correct EDF has been installed, a successful wireless connection will be indicated
by ‘SIEMENS’ together with a ‘>’ being displayed.
If repeated connections fail, then a SOFT reset of the Pocket PC may be required.
7.2.3 Site Disconnection
Once the equipment connection is no longer required, select Site
close down the connection to the equipment.

7.3 Access Levels
This section describes how to use the terminal to view and modify data within the
Detector.
There are two levels of access as follows:
Level 1 (R)
Read Only
Level 2
Modify/Initialise data items.
Access Level 1 (R)
No special access codes are required for Access Level 1 as it is ‘Read Only’ and does
not change any detector data/configurations etc.
Access Level 2
To enable Access Level 2 access, enter the appropriate ‘SME’ numeric code, as
described in Section 7.7.2.
Level 2 access will remain enabled for approximately 20 minutes or until the terminal is
unplugged or the wireless link has been disconnected. Entering the security code again
will give another 20 minutes of level 2 access.

7.4 Command Format
All operator commands start with a three character command code (mnemonic)
indicating the parameter to be monitored or changed. See Section 7.7 for a full list of
commands.
This mnemonic is normally an abbreviation of the associated parameter making them
easier to remember, for example, entering the mnemonic ‘DOS’ displays the Detector
Output Status on the User Terminal.
Following the mnemonic may be one or two indexes before the required information is
displayed.
For example;
SPT
After the mnemonic and the indexes (if any), the detector will display the current value
of the parameter. A colon ‘:’ is used to separate this from the mnemonic and indexes.
Therefore, to view the current value of the Detector Speed Threshold the following
command would be entered and then the result would be displayed:
Keystrokes
Display
SPT
SPT:50
i.e. Speed Threshold is 50 km/h
To modify the value, the full command can be entered followed by an equal sign ‘=‘ and
the new value required.
Note: Write access may need to be entered first before data can be modified; see page
84, and most commands have configurable range limits to limit the range of values that
can be entered.

7.6 Terminal Displays
In addition to the ‘static’ displays described so far, the detector may be continuously
updating some outputs.
For example, entering ‘SPD’ displays the current speed of the vehicle being detected:
Keystrokes
Display
SPD
SPD:45
Comment
First vehicle
SPD:40
Second vehicle
SPD:33
Third vehicle
...
...
Although not clear from the above diagram, the new display will appear on the same
line as the original, thus overwriting the old display, and not on the following line as the
diagram may imply.
Note: Functions that have data changes which occur more often than once a
second may not be accurately reflected on the terminal display. For example, if
‘DOS’ is used to display detector activations, then very short activations
(<200mS) may not appear on the terminal display.
7.6.1 SieCom Implementation
The user may find they are using the Siemens SieCom interface connection with either
a cable connection or a wireless link. In both cases, if a continuous updated is required
the command ‘POLL’1 must precede the updateable command.
For example; ‘POLL DOS’ will provide a continuous updated display of the detector
output condition.
1
This is a function of the Siecom terminal interface not the detector unit. If terminal connection is made
via a normal terminal unit (e.g. hyperterminal), then the ‘POLL’ command will not be required.

8 MAINTENANCE
Before starting any maintenance work, read the Safety Warning on page 2 of this
Handbook.
8.1 Routine Maintenance Visits
The interval between visits depends on local conditions but may consist of the following:
check the detector securing bolt to ensure it has not worked loose,
re-align the detector if necessary,
ensure the configuration access door is properly retained and seated,
clean the LED indicator lens with a soft cloth to remove dirt and grime,
check the connection lead for any damage.
8.2 First Line Maintenance
First line maintenance will be achieved on a modular replacement basis.
Check which type of detector is fitted, make a note of its alignment to the installation
and only replace with a similar part. When carrying out detector maintenance or
replacement, wherever possible, remove the suspect item from its mounting position
and work on the ground.
Ensure the replacement detector configuration switches are set to the same positions
as the original unit.
Read the accompanying installation information to see if the detector requires any
additional special configuration using the terminal interface.
Install and re-align the detector to the previously noted position.
8.3 Second Line Maintenance
All faulty units should be returned for repair to the following address.

8.4 Fault Log
8.4.1 Introduction
The detector’s fault log holds all the faults that are currently active.
When the detector finds a fault, it sets the associated fault flag (normally to the non-zero
value of 255) and may also set additional fault log data bytes.
In addition to the above fault log, which holds the currently active faults, the detector
also contains an historic rolling log which records the elapsed time (in years, days and
hours) that various events occurred since the unit was first powered-up. This will
provide an approximate indication of the time and date that the event may have
occurred.
8.4.2 Viewing the Fault Log
To display the currently active fault flags, enter ‘FFS
enter ‘FLD ’.
or FDS ’, and for the fault data,
The ‘+’ and ‘-’ keys can then be used to scroll through the active faults.
The FFS command provides a listing of all the possible detector faults with an indication
if the fault is active or not. The ‘+’ and ‘-‘ keys can be used to step through this array.
The FDS command provides a selective view of the Fault Log, only presenting faults
that are currently active. Again the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ keys can be used to step through this
display.
8.4.3 Clearing the Fault Log
Entering ‘RFL=1’ will reset the fault log of any active faults that are able to be cleared.
Note: The historic rolling log is not cleared by entering RFL=1. However there will
be an entry in the historic log indicating that the RFL command has been
invoked.
This command should only be used after each fault log entry has been investigated.
After the RFL command has been invoked the output will indicate ‘RFL: 0’. This
indicated that all fault status flags have been set to zero (0). However, if the LED is not
extinguished, then the fault(s) may not have cleared. Further investigation may be
required to ascertain if a fault is still active.

8.4.4 Historic Rolling Log
The Heimdall detector contains a ‘rolling’ historic log that records the elapsed time when
various events occurred. This elapsed time is defined as the period of time after the
detector was initially installed and is presented as:
Years: Days: Hours
To display the log entries, the terminal command ‘FLG’ is used. See the ‘FLG’
command for further details on operation (reference section 7.7).
A time stamped entry is added to the log when:
the power is switched off and back on,
when any fault is set, e.g. ‘FFS 11 DFMT:255’
when any fault is cleared (RFL=1)
Note: The historic log is not cleared when a new detector configuration is loaded.
To view the historic rolling log, enter the command ‘FLG ’, and the most recent entry is
displayed. Use the ‘+’ and ‘-’ keys to scroll (move) through the historic log.
If the ‘+’ key is then used then a more recent entry is displayed. If the ‘-’ key is used,
then the user may scroll through the log in the reverse direction.
To move directly to the most recent entry press <SPACE>.
If the power is cycled (switched off and back on), or the handset is disconnected, then
the next time that ‘FLG ’ is entered, the most recent entry will be displayed.

10 POWER SUPPLIES AND CABLE REQUIREMENTS
10.1 Heimdall Detector Power Supply Options
The Heimdall detector may be powered by a nominal 24 volts ac or dc supply and either
method may be employed depending upon circumstances.
The Heimdall detector power supply voltage should be within +20% of its nominal value,
i.e. 19.2v to 28.8v dc or ac RMS, and should not be more than 29 volts under any
circumstances.
The power supply requirements for the Heimdall detectors are listed in the appropriate
detector specification, Section 5.
10.2 Controller Power Supply Options
10.2.1 24V DC Supply
In general Siemens controllers are equipped with a 24 volt dc supply which is available
for a small number of detectors. This supply may be used providing there is sufficient
spare current capacity.
10.2.2 24V AC Supply – LV (Standard) Traffic Controllers
If the DC controller supply capacity is insufficient then an additional 24v ac voltage supply
may be added.
The standard Siemens part numbers of the controller mounted AC Detector Supply kits
are:-
Nominal 50 VA, (2 amps):Nominal 160 VA, (6.6amps):-
667/1/27853/000
667/1/20292/008
The kit contains a transformer, fusing and termination facilities.
The output of the transformer is nominally 25 volts but it will drop if the mains voltage falls
to the legal minimum (207 volts, which is -10% on the standard European voltage of 230v
or -13.75% on the standard UK voltage of 240v). Further voltage drops will occur due to
the loading of the transformer, the initial tolerance of the transformer and the resistance
of the cable.
Section 11, details the appropriate look-up tables for these transformers.
For more eccentric installations or non-standard transformer installation, section 12
details the appropriate method for calculating the appropriate cable lengths.

10.2.3 24 VAC Supply – ST900ELV Traffic Controllers
If the traffic controller is an ELV type and an additional 24v AC supply is required, the
controller mounted AC Detector supply kits are;
Nominal 50VA, (2 amps):Nominal 160VA, (6.6amps):-
667/1/33075/000
667/1/33074/000
The kit contains a transformer, fusing and termination facilities.
Section 12 details the method for calculating the appropriate cable lengths.

11 PERMITTED CABLE LENGTH ‘LOOK-UP TABLES’
This section assumes that the standard Siemens 24v AC Detector Supply transformer is
used.
The standard Siemens part numbers of the controller mounted AC Detector Supply kits
are assumed to be as follows.
Nominal 50VA, (2 amps)
Nominal 160VA, (6.6amps)
667/1/27853/000
667/1/20292/008
The following tables are provided to enable a very quick assessment to be made of the
suitability of a particular AC supply transformer and the required loading/cable runs.
These tables err on the ‘safe side’ and if particular installations do not fit the scenarios
presented then you will have to carry out the detailed calculations described in Section
11.
How to use the tables:
Determine how many other detectors are connected to the particular transformer.
Select the most appropriate table based on ‘point 1’ above. If there is no exact match
with the tables given choose the next highest.
Determine how many detectors are to be connected to the cable in question.
Determine the required cable length.
The table can then be viewed to see if standard ‘Serial’ (S) or ‘Parallel’ (P) supply feeds
should be used. A ‘Blank’ box is shown for situations which cannot be supported and a
re-design is necessary or a more detailed calculation is required, as described in Section
11.
11.1 Cable Type
Throughout these sections it is assumed that the installation has been completed with a
supply and return cable of 1 mm2.

12 CALCULATING PERMISSIBLE DETECTOR SUPPLY
CABLE LENGTHS
This section can be used to calculate the permissible cable lengths for non-standard
installation requirements, for example the ST900 ELV detector supply kits.
12.1 General Considerations
When considering power supply needs for the Heimdall detector, care must be taken to
ensure that all power losses are taken into account. This is particularly true for supply
feeder runs to each detector.
The following rules must be followed for each installation:
The minimum allowed voltage at any time on any detector is 19.2 volts
This voltage applies at the minimum mains voltage of 207 volts (which is -10% on
the standard European voltage of 230v or -13.75% on the standard UK voltage of
240v).
This voltage applies when the transformer is loaded with all the installed
detectors volts (if applicable).
The detector interface cable resistance must be allowed for in calculating the
maximum permissible cable lengths.
The following fixed parameters will need to be applied to all calculations:
The supply and return resistance for a 1 mm2 cable is 0.042 ohms per metre.
Transformer secondary winding resistance
Worst case no-load voltage
Maximum supply current.

12.2 Method Outline
The voltage falls by Rs in (e.g. in Table 12-1) for each amp of current drawn from the
transformer. For each individual cable there is a voltage drop down the cable of 0.042
volts for each go-and-return metre of (1 mm2) cable. Therefore the current must be
calculated for each cable run using the current per detector shown in , Section 3, for each
detector (Is). The total current must then be calculated for all detectors supplied from the
transformer. The maximum length of cable can be then calculated.
12.3 Calculating Cable Lengths
12.3.1 24V DC Supply Feed
When the Heimdall Detector is powered from the associated controller’s 24V DC supply
first calculate the total detector supply load. This must not exceed the limits of that
available for this particular installation.
Check that the minimum supply voltage at this load is greater than the detector minimum
voltage of 19.2V.
For each detector supply cable calculate:
Maximum cable length =
__Vs (min) - 19.2
_
total cable current x 0.042
Where: Vs = 24V PSU output voltage negative tolerance.
0.042 = cable resistance in ohms per metre.
If longer cables are required, the arrangements must be revised. For example by using
two cable cores in parallel the maximum cable length changes to:
_
Vs (min) - 19.2
_
total cable current x 0.021

12.3.2 24V AC/DC Transformer Supply Feed
In order to use the Siemens Detector transformers it is necessary to perform specific
calculations to ensure that the minimum supply voltage to the Heimdall detector is
maintained under all circumstances.
To assist the reader quick reference ‘look-up tables’ are included in Section 11 of this
document to provide the answer for installations where the same detector type is
connected to the supply cable being considered. If more complicated installations are
being considered then the procedures detailed below must be followed.
First calculate the lowest transformer voltage under worst case conditions using the total
transformer current (i.e. the total supply current for all detectors installed):
V Xmfr (min) = Vs(min) - (Rs x total transformer current in Amps)
Where: V Xmfr (min) = the minimum transformer secondary voltage at full detector load.
Vs (min) = the minimum transformer secondary voltage at no load and minimum mains
voltage.
Rs = the transformer secondary winding resistance.
Then subtract the minimum voltage at which the detector will work (19.2 volts). This gives
the maximum voltage drop which can be allowed in any cable.
Max allowed voltage drop
=
V Xfmr (min) - 19.2
The maximum allowable length for each cable can then be calculated:
Maximum cable length =
__V Xfmr (min) - 19.2
_
total cable current x 0.042
(0.042 is the cable resistance in ohms per metre)
If longer cables are required, the arrangements must be revised. For example by using
two cable cores in parallel the maximum cable length changes to:
_
V Xfmr (min) - 19.2
_
total cable current x 0.021
Running separate cables to each post improves the situation since the calculation applies
to each cable, so that each cable will take less current. All loads on each cable must be
allowed for including pedestrian crossing detectors and kerbside detectors.
Where the situation is more complicated due to sharing of cables it will be necessary to
calculate the voltage at each detector - This voltage must be at least 19.2 volts.
The voltage at the end of any single cable is given by subtracting 0.042 x the length of
the cable in metres x the current in the cable from the voltage at the start of the cable.
This applies to 1 mm 2 cable with a separate return conductor for each run. This is based
on the out-and-return resistance of the cable being 0.042 ohms per metre.
