Theory of Operations
THEORY OF OPERATIONS

BusSecure is an industry-specific security camera system developed to help solve problems
experienced by fleet operators. It is a digital video recording system that can support up to four cameras
in a mobile environment and store captured images in a vehicle-mounted digital video recorder (DVR).
Images can then be viewed and examined later.
1.1
DIGITAL VIDEO RECORDING
The central component of the BusSecure system is a high-quality DVR, which records images from up to
four cameras (monochrome or color, NTSC or PAL) with single-channel audio and information such as
the time, date, and vehicle number. Image storage capacity can be adjusted by recording speed, selected
resolution, and drive size.
The DVR begins capturing images as soon as the vehicle’s engine is started and continues to record as
long as the vehicle is running. When the available storage capacity is full, the DVR will automatically
purge the oldest image data to make room for new image data. Tagged images (images recorded
because of alarm activation) can be protected from being overwritten for a user-designated period of time
(the default setting is 30 days) or can be protected from being over written at all.
1.2
VIEWING AND RETRIEVING IMAGES
The captured digital images are stored as monochrome or color files, and are taken from the DVR and
TM
downloaded to a computer with the BusSecure WaveReader software. The DVR connects through an
Ethernet connection to a standard desktop PC or Laptop installed with a Windows 98/2000/NT/XP
operating system. When the DVR is connected to a PC or Laptop with the WaveReader software, images
can be viewed and transferred to long-term storage media such as DAT tapes, floppy disks, or recordable
CDs.

DETERMINING A SYSTEM LAYOUT
Figure 2 is an example camera layout for a bus application.
Note: For installation of these cameras, see their respective manuals.
Note: Camera layout and fields of view will vary from vehicle to vehicle, and each customer will determine camera names or
descriptions. Camera types, fields of view, and cable lengths will be determined by the customer-specific system layout.
The Front Door camera is located at the front of the bus over the driver’s head, looking at the front
passenger entry.
The Forward Facing camera is located in the front of the bus, looking in front of the bus.
The Front to Rear camera is located in the front of the bus, looking down the center aisle to the rear of the bus.

RUNNING CAMERA CABLES
CAUTION
When installing cables, follow these guidelines:
Avoid excessive lengths of cable at the control and device end. Excess cable should be pulled back to a
duct area where it can be folded and secured. Leave a service loop as directed for specific devices.
Cables should not come into contact with bare metal edges, light ballasts, or magnetic speaker coils. If
ballasts and speaker coils cannot be avoided, cross them perpendicularly.
Cables that are secured with cable-ties should not be tightened to the extent that the cable is
compressed or damaged. The cables should not be crimped, crushed, or severely bent.
When passing cables through tapping plates or metal side walls of the vehicle, insert grommets in the
holes to protect the cable, if possible This may not be feasible in a retrofit situation. If it is not feasible,
make sure that the protective outer CL2 jacket is maintained when passing cable through hole.
When pulling cable through the conduit, do not jerk or over-pull the cables. These actions will stretch
and damage the cable. Attach a pull-line to the cable jacket, not to the connectors.
1)
Route cables from each camera location to the DVR location as determined by your customerspecific system layout. Figure 3 shows an example system layout.
2)
If cables must be pulled through vehicle walls with limited access or conduit, attach pull lines to the
cables jackets, and gently pull cables through the appropriate routing paths.
3)
After reaching camera locations, leave enough cable for a 6-inch service loop at each location.
4)
Pull any excess cable back into the duct area where it can be folded and secured.

INSTALLING CAMERA ASSEMBLIES
The BusSecure system will support up to four cameras (color and/or monochrome). Cameras supported
by the BusSecure system can provide a 1.0 V pk-pk composite analog video signal, either NTSC or PAL,
at 75 ohm (CCTV standard).
2.4.1 INSTALLING SURFACE-MOUNT CAMERA ASSEMBLIES
Surface-mount camera housings are typically mounted to the ceiling, but can be mounted to any flat
vehicle surface.
Note: In some installations, it is necessary to use a metal tapping plate behind the mounting surface. If a tapping plate is used,
prepare it in the same way as the mounting surface (i.e., drill a cable entry hole and mounting holes in the appropriate locations).
1)
Use the template in Appendix A to mark the location of the
cable-entry hole and two mounting holes. See Figure 4.
2)
Using a 3/16-inch (5 mm) (drill bit, drill the two mounting
holes.
3)
Using a 1-inch (25.4 mm) drill bit, drill the cable entry hole.
4)
Install a 3/4-inch (20 mm) (interior diameter) grommet on
the cable entry hole, or where feasible.
5)
Connect the video and power cables to the camera,
and feed the excess cable into the vehicle’s duct area.
6)
Mount the camera and mounting plate to the vehicle
surface (and tapping plate, if used). See Figure 5.
7)
Refer to section 2.4.3 to align the camera’s field of
view to the appropriate angle.

OPTIONAL STATUS LIGHTS:
The status lights will alert you to the status of the DVR. DVR status lights should not be confused with
DVR LEDs. The LEDs are located on the front of the removable DVR unit. The term status lights is used
to refer to any lights or LEDs connected to the two outputs from the DVR, such as the BusSecure Panic
Button. Status lights can be mounted anywhere depending upon the installation and are optional devices.
Note: Some properties customize the DVR status outputs and use another device (such as an IO or PLC) to control the lights.
Output 1 corresponds to Check System and Output 2 corresponds to Normal.
Output 2: the DVR is running and capturing images.
Output 1 and 2: the DVR is running and capturing images with an exception (e.g., loss of signal
from a camera). Check the Recorder Log of the DVR to investigate further.
Output 1: the DVR has encountered an error and is not capturing images.
No lights: the DVR is not running.
POSSIBLE CAUSES FOR A “CHECK SYSTEM ” STATUS LIGHT ON (in conjunction with a normal status light if
installed):
•
Camera failure
•
Camera enabled but not installed
•
Event data deleted before the configured minimum time has passed
•
Surveillance data deleted before the configured minimum time has passed

BusSecure User Manual
REMOVABLE DVR: LEDS FROM LEFT TO RIGHT
: Processor is writing to the hard drive (flashing
green).
: 12-V power supply present (solid green).
Figure 32. Front Panel LEDs
BUSSECURE UNIT DOES NOT START UP WITH VEHICLE IGNITION
To test input voltage: remove the 4-pin Molex connector from the connection box of the DVR. Verify that
when the ignition is off, the only voltage present is 12 VDC continuous (pin #1).
Verify that when the engine is started, there is 12 VDC continuous (pin 1) and 12 VDC vehicle running
voltages are present (pin 4). The DVR will not start without both power sources.
Visually verify that the pins of the 4-pin Molex connector are properly crimped and inserted in the
connector.
BUSSECURE UNIT STARTS UP BUT DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE CAPTURING IMAGES
LED LIGHTS
AND
ON THE FRONT OF THE
DVR
ARE NOT ALTERNATELY FLASHING
1)
The DVR will not capture images if the key lock of the unit is open or unlocked. Close and lock the
door, then turn off the vehicle. After the vehicle has shut down, restart the engine.
2)
Shortly after the DVR restarts, image capture can be verified by the green status light (or
combination of green and red status lights).
BUSSECURE OPERATING NORMALLY BUT STATUS LIGHTS ARE NOT ILLUMINATING
All status lights will be turned off after the DVR has shutdown completely.
The status lights are supplied with 12 VDC continuous power from the vehicle. Verity that continuous
voltage is present at the status light.
The ground for the status lights is supplied by the DVR connection box. To check the ground output with
a voltage meter, perform the following:
1)
Place the positive meter probe onto an unused 12 VDC DVR output on the P1 or P2 terminal block
(see Figure 21).
2)
Place the negative meter probe into terminal 13 of the P2 terminal block.
30
0150-0263A / May 2003
BusSecure User Manual
3)
Troubleshooting
Terminal 13 of the P2 terminal block is the normal operation output. Voltage should be observable
on the meter when the BusSecure is recording normally.
Note: Voltage may vary from +5 VDC to +12 VDC, depending on the type of status indicator installed.
4)
If voltage is not present, remove any wires that are connected to terminal 13 and repeat steps 1
through 4.
5)
Repeat steps 1 through 5 for terminal 15 of the P2 terminal block. On terminal 15, voltage will only
be present under a fault condition and at startup.
6)
If the vehicle power and the DVR’s output of ground are both present at the light, but the light is not
illuminating, it may be necessary to troubleshoot the vehicle wiring or replace the status light.
LOSS OF VIDEO (IN CAPTURED IMAGES)
CHECK FOR VIDEO AT THE BUSSECURE CONNECTION BOX AND THE CAMERA
1)
If there is no video displayed, verify on the two-pin Molex camera power connector that 12 VDC is
present.
2)
Verify that the power connection on the camera is intact.
3)
Verify that the power connection on the P1 terminal strip is correct.
4)
Check the integrity of the coaxial cable and the BNC connectors.
5)
Ensure that the BNC connectors at the DVR and camera have not been damaged or pulled apart.
CHECK THE INTEGRITY OF THE COAXIAL CABLE
1)
Disconnect the coaxial cable from the camera and DVR connection box.
2)
Meter the coaxial cable by placing a jumper from the center conductor (video) of the BNC to the
outer part of the BNC (ground).
3)
Use a meter on the other end of the coaxial cable to check for resistance by placing one probe on
the center conductor and the other probe on the outer part of the BNC.
4)
Remove the jumper and meter one end of the disconnected coaxial cable. There should be no
resistance.
