EXPLANATION OF GRAPHICAL SYMBOLS
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle is intended to
alert the user to the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product's
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to
persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instruction in the literature
accompanying the product.

SECTION 1:
INTRODUCTION
1.1
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Honeywell offers the technology for a truly integrated video and data capture system.
The combination of the Protocol Interface Translator (PIT) and the Rapid Eye system
provides this integrated capability. AVBPITPOS is a transparent serial device that can
capture the serial data from a Point-of-Sale (POS) device and send it to the Rapid Eye
system for viewing, recording, and searching.
AVBPITPOS is a single serial port POS filtering module that will allow a POS device to
communicate with the Rapid Eye Remote Unit through a single data communication port
on the Remote Unit.
1.2
PACKAGE CONTENTS
The AVBPITPOS kit consists of the following components:
1. AVBPIT1 – Serial Port POS filtering module
2. DKT507ND – 12VDC Power Supply with 2.1mm female connector
3. 921400-05 – Cable, Serial File Transfer DB9

SECTION 2:
CONTROLS AND CONNECTIONS
2.1
POS WITH A SINGLE COM PORT
If the POS system has a single serial port and it is already being utilized for printing, a
cable must be manufactured to connect a POS device to the AVBPIT1. This new cable
will allow the POS system to share Transmit (TX) and Signal Ground (SG) between the
AVBPIT1 and the existing printer.
The new cable can be completely remanufactured or made simply by splicing into the
existing cable and connecting Pins 2 and 5 (typically) of the POS serial port with pins 3
and 5 of the AVBPIT1. See the Figure below. For a typical system diagram, see
Appendix A, Figure 6.
Be careful to comply with all applicable RS232 standards when creating
this new cable. Although the Rapid Eye and PIT system only require 2
signals to effectively capture POS data, the serial ports on the POS
terminals may require other RS232 signals be addressed to operate
effectively. Some POS terminals require that the RTS and CTS signals be
connected together before the port will transmit data. Consult your POS
hardware manual for any POS-specific requirements.

2.2
POS WITH MULTIPLE COM PORTS
If the POS system has more than one serial port, it is preferable to enable this second
port in Journal Mode and capture its output by connecting it directly to the AVBPIT1
COM0 Channel. The cable utilized here must also be manufactured and is pinned out
similar to the one described in Section 2.1 above, except that it directly connects the
POS device and the AVBPIT1 module. The cable must connect Pins 2 and 5 (typically)
of the POS serial port with pins 3 and 5 of the AVBPIT. See the figure below. For a
typical system diagram, see Appendix A, Figure 7.
Be careful to comply with all applicable RS232 standards when creating
this new cable. Although the Rapid Eye and PIT system only require 2
signals to effectively capture POS data, the serial ports on the POS
terminals may require other RS232 signals be addressed to operate
effectively. Some POS terminals require that the RTS and CTS signals be
connected together before the port will transmit data. Consult your POS
hardware manual for any POS-specific requirements.

SECTION 3:
CONFIGURING THE AVBPITPOS
3.1
DIP SWITCHES
The AVBPIT1 is designed to interface different POS devices with the Rapid Eye system.
The POS device and its related serial communication parameters are selected using
three banks of DIP switches (S1, S2 and S3), which are found under the removable lid.
Access the DIP switches by removing the lid as shown in Figure 4.
1. Unscrew the 2 screws used to secure the lid to the AVBPIT1 housing.
2. Retain the screws for use when replacing the lid later in the installation
procedure.

between the AVBPITPOS and Rapid Eye by toggling DIP switch (S1) position 8
ON and OFF. Data window should display similar result as shown in the
Panasonic window below.
11. You can further customize the configuration by setting up the Rules to create
Log and Alarm events based on the data being captured by the Rapid Eye
system. If Rules are not required, skip to Step 14.
12. Create rules for data events by entering the appropriate information in the Event
Name and Event Rule dialogue boxes then clicking the Add button. The Event
Name will appear in the Events window. Consult Rapid Eye’s VIEW user Guide
for more information about this capability.

Maintenance Message. Wait for the System Operational message to appear
in the Feedback dialogue box. (Same procedure as described in steps 8 - 9).
14. From VIEW, initiate a Live session to the Remote Unit and verify that installation
and setup are correct and that a separate data window is available for the POS
device. Initiate a Live session to the Remote Unit. A data stream will appear and
can be selected in the same manner as any other available video stream. All
streams will be selected by default; this will be the same for Live or Retrieval
sessions. Verify that the POS device is communicating with the Rapid Eye
system by initiating a transaction at the POS device and verifying that the correct
data appears in the Data Input window.

CONNECTING A POS SYSTEM USING B&B SMART SWITCH AND 4
AVBPITPOS MODULES
This appendix is provided to document early uses of the AVBPITPOS in a multiple POS
device configuration. By combining a B&B Smart Switch and 4 AVBPITPOS devices, it
was possible to develop a multiple POS device system. The figure below depicts this
basic system configuration attached to a Rapid Eye Multi Remote Unit. For more
detailed information regarding this type of POS implementation visit our web site and
download Application Note AVAN000851 (Configuring a B&B Electronics Smart Switch
(232BSS4) for use with the Rapid Eye Multi and the AVBPITPOS Filtering Module).
NOTE: When deploying a new multiple POS device systems we recommend using the
AVBPIT4POS device instead of the B&B Smart Switch and multiple
AVBPITPOS devices, consult the web site for details.
