Specific FastTrace Configurations
2.1
FastTrace 2 Lite
The FastTrace 2 Lite has been designed, developed and manufactured as a complete FastTrace 2 video
security system, but the Entry system license that is included, limits the number of supported cameras to a
maximum of 4 analogue cameras.
Also note that the FastTrace 2 Lite can only operate with analogue cameras; it does not support IP cameras.
The FastTrace 2 Lite comes with an Entry system license. It is not possible to expand the video system with
new licenses and/or extra extension boards.

from our website www.xtralissecurity.com (logon not required for commercial datasheets).
Note
The FastTrace 2 Lite has become obsolete. Xtralis no longer provides it.
2.2
FastTrace 2X
The FastTrace 2X has been developed as a more powerful video system with higher performance and more
efficient operation.
The major difference is that the FastTrace 2X supports up to 16 analytic channels, while the FastTrace 2 is
limited to a maximum of 4 analytic streams.
The FastTrace 2X comes with a full or TX-only system license.

Hardware Installation Manual
FastTrace 2E
The FastTrace 2E is the latest hardware in the ADPRO® FastTrace™ 2 series. It has been developed as a
powerful video system with high performance and more efficient operation to replace the former FastTrace
units. The FastTrace 2E has up to 20 analogue video inputs, up to 32 IP video inputs, and supports up to
32 analytic channels.
Although the XOa 3 software technically allows for 32 IP channels, these 32 channels are only available on
FastTrace 2E models with an Intel DH61BE or MiTAC PH10LU motherboard, and 4 GB RAM or more. On
other models, maximum 16 IP channels are available.
Furthermore, to use the 32 IP channels, the FastTrace 2E requires a new system license. Use Xchange to
install the new license. For instructions, see Field Alert #6 – Upgrading to Xoa 3.
Remember to purchase and install additional IP licenses if required.
You can purchase the FastTrace 2E with a full or TX-only system license.

2.4
System License
From version 2.00, all ADPRO video systems require a system license.
Note
Applications such as IntrusionTrace, LoiterTrace…, IP channels, and the video encoder cards
require a separate license. They are not included in the system license.
There are 3 types of system licenses available:

FULL: all features of the video system are available.

ENTRY(*): all features are available, with these restrictions:
You can use only 4 analogue cameras (no IP camera support).
You can use only 1 hard disk.
You can only use 1 MIO card (and no EIO cards).

TRANSMITTER (TX) only: all features are available, but continuous recording is not allowed and
recording on event is fixed to 5 seconds pre-recording, 10 seconds event recording, and 0 seconds postrecording. Furthermore, event recording stops when the limit of 16,000 events has been reached.
(*) The ENTRY system license is not available for the FastTrace 2X or FastTrace 2E configuration.
A FastTrace 2 video system running without system license will behave as a video system with a FULL
license for 5 days. However, the system informs the user of the license error via the event message
0013 – [SYST] – SYSTEM LICENSE ERROR, and via a popup window at each connection with the XOa
client.
After that period of 5 days, the video system enters a locked-down state, and refuses all connections for
live streams and recordings. All active configured recordings continue on the video system. During this
locked-down state, the XOa client shows only the About window (so that you can retrieve the necessary
information to order a new license) and the Transfer window (so that you can upload a license to the

FastTrace 2 video system). For more information on uploading licenses, see the XOa Client Software User
Manual.
Note
The system license is locked on the FastTrace 2 motherboard and is therefore system specific:
the license must include the correct MAC address.
When you upload the system license and your unit already has other licenses (e.g. an encoder
license, a LoiterTrace license…), your video system merges all these licenses together in one
license file. For backup and archiving, you only need to download one file.

Hard Disks
3.1
Required Hard Disk Capacity
Hardware Installation Manual
As there are lots of configuration possibilities, Xtralis has a hard disk space calculator available. You can find
this hard disk space calculator on the CD/DVD provided with your FastTrace 2 video system, or you can
download it from our website www.xtralissecurity.com. Make sure you log on with sufficient download rights.
Note
The calculator is an estimating tool only. Figures are purely indicative. The real requirements of
the hard disk capacity depend on scene content.
3.2
Adding/Replacing a Hard Disk
If you receive error messages from your hard disk in the Status screen of the XOa client, you may need to
replace the faulty hard disk.
If the system is running out of disk space, you can add a new hard disk without removing any of the hard
disks in use. You can install up to 4 hard disks.
Note
When using an Entry system license, you can use only 1 hard disk. For example, with the
ADPRO FastTrace 2 Lite.
Note
It is possible to mount a hard disk coming from another unit into a new unit. If you do this, you
can play back video that has been recorded by the other FastTrace 2 unit.
Take the following restrictions into account:
 Make sure that the new unit has the same configuration concerning the number of video
channels as the unit from which the hard disk was taken.
 Xtralis recommends to immediately put the number of days recording to 0 (in the Recording
Behaviour screen, Maximum days recording). This prevents overwriting of valuable data.
 Clear all recording conditions in the recording behaviour. This prevents overwriting of valuable
data.
 Do not mix hard disks from different FastTrace 2 units into one, because this will result in
unpredictable behaviour. Do not add the old disk to the new unit, but replace the disk(s) in the
new unit by the old disk(s).
3.3
Retrieving Hard Disk Information
You can retrieve hard disk information and identify possibly hard disks using the Telnet ta,smart command,
or using the XOa client software.
3.3.1 Using the ta,smart Command
SMART stands for Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology. Execute the ta,smart command in a
Telnet session to obtain the SMART information for all hard disks in the FastTrace 2 video system.

ERROR  there is a problem retrieving the power status of the drive
ACTIVE/IDLE  drive operates normally
STANDBY  drive is in low power mode (drive is in spin-down status)
SLEEPING  drive is in lowest power mode (drive is completely shut down)
The smart status column displays one of the following statutes:
 ERROR  drive is failing
 ALERT  there is a problem retrieving SMART info from the drive, or the
drive may be in the process of failing
 NORMAL  no problems found with the drive
Temperature
The temperature column displays from left to right:
 the minimum temperature of the disk
 the current temperature of the disk
 the maximum temperature of the disk
Force [ON/OFF]
ON = SMART is checked on disk in STANDBY or SLEEPING mode
OFF = SMART is only checked on disks in ACTIVE/IDLE mode
Interval
Indicates the interval (in minutes) between SMART checks.
Temperature threshold
If the disk temperature is higher than this threshold, the system generates the
alarm I102: 'SMART HDD ALERT TEMP'.
3.3.2 Using the XOa Client Software
If you have more than one hard disk installed in your server, you can check which hard disk is causing the
alarm messages in the XOa client via System > Maintenance > Harddisks. The Smart column shows the
operational status of the hard disks.

RAID 1 Support
From version 2.8.xx onwards, you can activate RAID 1.
3.9.1 About RAID 1
RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks (originally Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks).
It is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a logical unit. Data is distributed
across the drives in one of several ways called RAID levels, depending on the level of redundancy and
performance required. RAID has become an umbrella term for computer data storage schemes that can
divide and replicate data among multiple physical drives, while the operating system can still access the data
as being on one single drive.
RAID 1 is about mirroring without parity or striping. Data is written identically to two drives, thereby producing
a “mirrored set”: the read request is serviced by either of the two drives containing the requested data,
whichever one has the shortest search time plus rotational latency.
21790_05
27
Hardware Installation Manual
ADPRO® FastTrace™ 2 Series
3.9.2 Activating RAID 1
RAID 1 requires a minimum of 2 hard disks. The size of the RAID 1 recording combination is the smaller of
the 2 disks installed in your server. If, for example, you have a 1 TB disk and a 2 TB disk, the RAID 1
recording disk has a 1 TB capacity.
Caution!
When you apply RAID 1, the system formats the selected disks and erases the data on the
disks. You will lose all the data on the disks.
To activate RAID 1, proceed as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Reboot the server and access the XOa Installer menu.
Choose Update current system.
Choose Manage recording disks.
Use the arrows keys to select the desired hard disk and press Enter to activate the selection. An X
appears in front of the selected hard disk (between the brackets). Select two hard disks, then choose
Make RAID 1 (mirror) from selected disks.
Note
Do not select three or four disks. The third and fourth disk will then be configured as spare
disks within the RAID 1 configuration. If you want to put disk 1 and 2 in RAID 1, and also
disk 3 and 4 in RAID 1, execute this step twice.
5.
6.
When mirroring has finished, choose Main menu.
Choose Reboot.
You can check which disks are in RAID 1 mode in the XOa client software.
Launch the XOa client software and choose System > Maintenance > Harddisks. At the bottom of the
window you find the Harddisks section. The Type column indicates whether the disk is a RAID 1 disk.

Features
ADPRO® FastTrace™ 2 Series
Note
With the FastTrace 2E Series, Xtralis introduced the Next Generation I/O cards. If you are using
Next Generation cards with your FastTrace 2E unit, see Main and Extension I/O Cards Next
Generation on page 57.
The Main I/O (MIO) and Extension I/O (EIO) cards are internal I/O cards, to be fitted inside the ADPRO
FastTrace 2 system. They are also called OTB (on-the-board) cards.
These I/O cards offer:

8 tamper-protected inputs and 4 relay outputs (rated 14 VDC @ 1 A) on the Main I/O card

12 tamper-protected inputs and 4 relay outputs on the Extension I/O card

driver for PTZ cameras (half/full duplex RS-485) or audio module/VM22A audio switcher (selected by
jumpers on the card)

driver for front LED indicators on FastTrace 2 model

auto-detected cards on FastTrace 2 system
8.2
Possible Configurations
You can configure maximum 2 sets of I/O cards on the FastTrace 2:

Main I/O only

Main I/O + Extension I/O

2 x Main I/O + Extension I/O

2 x Main I/O + 2 x Extension I/O
Note
With an ENTRY system license you can install only 1 Main I/O card. Multiple Main I/O cards are
not supported. Also, an ENTRY system does not support Extension I/O cards. This is for
instance the case with the ADPRO FastTrace 2 Lite.

HIPI Card for IP Cameras
The HIPI card offers an isolated LAN network (10/100/1000 Mbps on RJ45 connector) to connect IP
cameras.
Note
The HIPI card can also function as Ethernet card from version 2.9 onwards. The HIPI card is no
longer used for new FastTrace 2 units. It is not compatible with the MiTAC PH10LU
motherboard.
11.1 Ethernet Settings
The Ethernet connection of your FastTrace 2 server and the Ethernet connections of the installed HIPI
card(s) must be set on different IP ranges! IP cameras can be connected on either HIPI card, as shown in
the illustration below, with a maximum of 8 cameras per HIPI card. Yet, if you have installed two HIPI cards
you can connect up to 16 IP cameras to the same switch/HIPI card.
74
21790_05
ADPRO® FastTrace™ 2 Series
Hardware Installation Manual
Note
The HIPI Ethernet interfaces use ETH1 and/or ETH2, not ETH0.
In case of 2 HIPI cards with IP only, there is no restriction in which camera is connected to which port.
A 16-camera network can be connected to a single port.
The HIPI card is automatically detected by the FastTrace 2 video system. Each HIPI card must be configured
with a different IP address and a subnet mask. As a consequence, 3 IP ranges are possible on a
FastTrace 2 configuration:

IP range of the FastTrace 2 video system

IP range of the first HIPI card

IP range of the second HIPI card
All IP cameras connected to the HIPI card (by means of a switch) must be set in the same IP range as the
HIPI card.

Ethernet Card
12.1 Installation
FastTrace 2E units with Intel motherboards are standard equipped with an Ethernet card. Units with a MiTAC
motherboard do not have an Ethernet card; the motherboard contains the necessary LAN connector.
If you want to use an analogue-only system (with 2 video encoder cards) and you want to insert 2 I/O cards
sets (2 Main I/O cards and 2 Extension I/O cards), you need to take out the Ethernet card and replace it with
an I/O card. If you have a slot available (with only 1 video encoder card), you can use the available slot for
the Extension I/O 2 card.
12.2 Ethernet Settings
You must set the Ethernet connection of your FastTrace 2 video system and the Ethernet connections of the
installed Ethernet card to different IP ranges. For more information, see the XOa Client Software User
Manual.

Modems
You can connect one modem to your server.
Normally, you connect a classic PSTN (ISDN) modem with serial port to the server by means of the USB to
RS-232 converter. This USB to RS-232 converter needs a specific FTDI chip.
The Stollman TA+USBA is the only ISDN modem with USB interface that is supported on the FastTrace 2
unit (without having to use the converter).
Connect the modem to the USB input 1 /dev/ttyU1 on the server (rear connections).
Consult the specifications of the motherboard in your unit to know which USB input to use. The example
below is for the MiTAC PH10LU motherboard.
Restart the XOa client software before configuring the modem. For more information, see the XOa Client
Software User Manual.

17.2 Audio OUT
17.2.1 Setup
There is one general audio output available on the server: either via the MIO or via the audio out plug of the
motherboard (= green 3.5 mm jack). If necessary, you can add VM22A audio units.
Audio outputs are available on one or two VM22A units, connected in cascade. Unit 0 is controlled by the
MIO card, and drives loudspeakers 1 to 10. Unit 1 connects to the first unit through the EIO loop connecter
and drives loudspeakers 11 to 20.
For more information, see the VM22A Audio Switcher – Installation and User Manual.
You can assign each loudspeaker to a camera using the XOa client software.
If only 1 loudspeaker is needed on the site, you can do without the VM22A switch. In this case, connect an
amplified loudspeaker to the audio out plug of the motherboard (= green 3.5 mm jack). It is also possible to
connect an amplified loudspeaker to the audio out output on the Main I/O Card.
Note
If talk-back does not work, check the following:
 Routers may block UDP packets. Use TCP or configure the router to allow UDP packets.
 Use the PC headphones plug instead of the PC microphone plug.
 The microphone on your computer is not correctly configured.
In this case you need to configure the microphone device.

Hardware Installation Manual
Connecting PIRs
18.1 Required PIR Firmware
For a correct functioning of the PIR alarm processing, a minimal PIR firmware version 2.00 is required.
Previous firmware versions also work with RS-485 communication, but do not support all features (e.g. Alarm
Management).
18.2 Connecting the PIRs
To connect PIRs to the server, you have the following options:

using an RS-485 cable and connecting the cable from the PIR to the Main I/O card of the server

using the USB to RS-485 8 channel distribution unit

using a USB to serial port RS-485 converter and connecting the PIR to the converter by means of an
RS-485 cable
Note
From firmware version 2.6 onwards, a separate PIR-HLI application license is required to
configure the PIR devices.
18.2.1 Connecting the PIR Detector Directly to the Main I/O Card
Note
For the Next Generation Main I/O cards, see Main I/O Cards Next Generation on page 90.
Connect the PIR device(s) (set up multiple PIRs in cascade) to the server by connecting the RS-485 cable of
the PIR closest to the server to the Main I/O card.
You must connect the PIR(s) to the appropriate terminals on the Main I/O card.
Set the jumpers on the Main I/O to PTZ output and RS-485 2-wire.

(*) Some PIR models have separate 0V terminals for data and power; on other models there is only one
common 0V terminal.
The PIRs are powered locally by a power adapter.
You can place locally powered PIR detectors at the maximum distance of 1200 m for RS-485 cables, but
remember that this remains a 3-line communication (RS-485 + 0V).
Make sure that there is no difference in earth potential between the server and the PIR.
18.2.1.1
Main I/O Cards Next Generation
On the MIO card Next Generation, all connectors are available, so you do not need to adjust any jumpers to

Note
If you use a 24 VAC supply for more than 1 PIR, make sure to connect all PIRs in phase.
18.2.2 Connecting the PIR Detector Using the USB to RS-485 8-Channel
Distribution Unit
The USB to RS-485 distribution unit provides 8 channels (1 PIR unit per channel) to easily connect and
configure the PIR units to the server.
For more information, see technical datasheet 19532060 on the USB to RS-485 8-channel distribution unit.
Up to 8 PIRs can be connected through star wiring to the USB to RS-485 distribution unit. Only the 485
bidirectional communication of the PIRs is used, we do not use the mechanical PIR tampers. It is possible to
connect 4 distribution units in cascade (= only one of the 4 distribution units needs to be connected to the
server, but the cables between the other units shall not exceed 1 metre), so the server supports a maximum
of 32 PIR devices.
The distribution unit contains a USB connection port for communication with the server. Connect it to the
dev/ttyU2 USB port on the server. Do not use any other ports. Keep the USB cable between distribution unit
and server as short as possible (max. 1 metre).
Restart the XOa client software after connecting the PIR to the USB port.

Converter
Connect the PIR detector to the converter and plug the USB cable of the converter in the dev/ttyU2 USB port
of the server.
Restart the XOa client software after connecting the PIR to the USB port.
You can place locally powered PIR detectors at the maximum distance of 1200 m for RS-485 cables, but

Diagnostics
In case of major troubles with the server, the system allows to generate a number of traces. In some cases,
the Xtralis Support Division may ask you to activate and capture some traces and files that can be helpful to
resolve any technical issues.
22.1 Retrieving Traces
The server can output its internal trace buffer to hard disk to allow tracing for longer periods of time without
losing the data. This happens with the Telnet command tr,output,file. To easily retrieve these files, type the
server’s IP address in the address bar of your internet browser and add /log.php to the address.
Example: http://10.0.0.10/log.php.
Here you can download the generated log files. You need to enable logging first.
When you open the web page without having enabled logging, the Internal Logging page appears. It
displays the instructions to enable logging.
