The CTFID is supplied with a VP-USB adaptor that plugs into any USB-compliant port
supported by a Windows® operating system. Once the CTFID software is loaded, the adaptor
communicates over the video signal from any Bilinx-enabled camera or AutoDome.
There are three (3) possible connection types to link the CTFID software to the imaging
device. The first two (2) choices communicate via coax using the Bilinx protocol. These two
(2) choices connect to either the USB or serial COMM port of the PC. The third choice is
direct RS-232 connection between the PC COMM port and the imaging device (AutoDome
only).
3.1
Connecting the VP-USB Configuration Tool
It is recommended that the CTFID software be installed prior to connecting the hardware to
the USB port. Refer to Section 2 Installing the CTFID, page 6 for additional information.
To see the device output, use a CCTV monitor with looping inputs or a T connector (not
provided) for the coaxial cable, and plug the second coaxial cable into the CCTV monitor.
Ensure that the monitor is either auto-terminating or is set to low impedance. See Figure 3.1
for an example of a typical CCTV monitor’s connections.

To see the device output, use a CCTV monitor. Plug the coax connected to the imaging device
to one of the BNC connectors of the VP-RS2BLNX. Connect another coax between the second
BNC connector and the CCTV monitor. Ensure that the monitor is either auto-terminating or is
set to low impedance. See Figure 3.3 for an example of a typical CCTV monitor’s connections.

Migrating Configuration Settings
The Migration feature allows an operator to download the configuration settings of one
AutoDome then upload those settings to another AutoDome. This feature ensures that the
settings of each AutoDome in a surveillance system are configured the same way.
The CTFID saves downloaded settings in a configuration file (.ctm) on the operator’s
computer. To upload the settings stored in the .ctm file, the operator connects another
AutoDome to the computer that contains the CTFID application and has access to the
configuration file. Next, the operator uses the Migration upload utility to copy the settings in
the configuration file to the AutoDome.
Note: Migration is available for transferring settings only between AutoDomes. If you attempt
to migrate settings between an AutoDome and another imaging device or between two nonAutoDome imaging devices, the CTFID relays a message that the imaging devices are
incompatible.
1.
Connect an AutoDome to a computer that contains the CTFID application.
Ensure that you can connect this computer to the AutoDome that is to upload the
configuration settings.
2.
Launch the CTFID application on a computer that you can connect to different
AutoDomes.
3.
Configure the offline or online settings for the AutoDome using the CTFID main screen.

Troubleshooting
The following section details information to confirm that the CTFID application is properly
functioning.
7.1
Confirm System Connection between the PC and the Device
When the Configuration Software is started, the application automatically detects and
connects to the attached device. The Online Configuration button is enabled when a
connected device is detected. Settings for that device should download into the application.
To confirm that the device is connected to the application on the PC:
1.
Verify that you are in Online mode (the Online Configuration button should have a yellow
background).
2.
Verify that the Connection Status Indicator icon (displayed in the System Feedback area)
indicates that a connection has been made.
If the application is not detecting a connected device:
1.
Check the device to ensure that it is working properly.
2.
Verify that there are no loose connections between the Configuration Tool hardware and
the PC and the Configuration Tool hardware and the device.
3.
Verify that the green light on the Configuration Tool hardware is illuminated.
4.
If necessary, disconnect the Configuration Tool hardware from the PC and reconnect it.
5.
Review the Status text box in the System Feedback section (lower text box in the main
screen). If the application is connected to a device, download confirmation messages are
displayed.
