Chapter 2: Installation
Installing 6800+ Modules
There are three types of modules:
•
Single-slot back connectors
•
Double-slot back connectors
•
Front modules
Back connectors come in two sizes: double-slot and single-slot. You
can install a VSM6801+ module in an FR6802+XF, FR5702+XF48,
FR6802+QXF, FR6802+DM or 6800/7000 series frame.
Caution
Before inserting, removing, or replacing a back module, you must
power down the frame. Failure to do so could result in damage to
the frame, modules, or power supply.
These modules require no specialized installation or removal
procedures. However, if you are installing both front and rear modules,
ensure that the back module is installed first before plugging in the front
module. Likewise, ensure that the front module is unplugged from the
frame before removing the rear module.
•
See the FR6802+ Frame Installation and Operation Manual for
information about installing and operating an FR6802+ frame and
its components.
•
See the 6800+ Safety Instructions and Standards Manual for
important information about safely installing your module.
Once you have installed your VSM6801+ modules, you can connect
them to the appropriate input and outputs.
Installing 6800+ Modules into a 6800/7000 Series Frame
Follow these steps to install 6800+ modules into a 6800/7000 series
frame. (The 6800/7000 series frames have a back panel already in
place. There is no need to install an individual back connector into this
type of frame.)
All modules are hot-swappable and can be installed with the power
supply either turned on or turned off.
1. Pull out the finger-release screws on the right and left side of the
front panel, and then open it.

Function Description
1
STD
• When the MAN/AUTO J3 jumper is set to
MAN, STD controls standard selection. You
can set this switch for either NTSC or PAL-B.
• When the MAN/AUTO J3 jumper is set to
AUTO, STD is disabled and output standard
follows input standard.
2
VBI
This setting controls vertical blanking. You can
set this switch for either pass or blank. A blank
setting results in blanking lines 10 to 19 and 273
to 282 in NTSC operation and lines 6 to 22 and
319 to 335 in PAL operation.
3
SETUP
This setting controls setup (pedestal) in NTSC
operation. When the channel is set to PAL
operation, this switch has no effect.
4
TEST
This setting controls color bars test signal. You
can set this switch so that the color bars test
signal is displayed at the composite output (100/
7.5/75/7.5 for NTSC and 100/0/77/0 for PAL).
This feature requires valid CCIR-601 4:2:2 video
data input.
5
B&W
This setting controls black and white output. You
can remove the chrominance and burst from the
channel, thereby creating black and white output.
See Table 3-2 for specific instructions for setting the DIP switches and
monitoring the LEDs.

VSM6801+ Installation and Operation Manual
Appendix A: Communication and Control Troubleshooting Tips
Control and Monitoring Using CCS Software
Before using CCS software applications to control and monitor your
module, you must refresh (+Pilot Lite) or discover (Pilot and
Navigator) the module. Refresh and Discovery are the processes by
which your CCS software finds, and then connects to your module.
Refreshing Your Module Using +Pilot Lite
When using +Pilot Lite to change your VSM6801+ control parameters,
you must “refresh” the control connection between your 6800+ frame
and PC. To refresh the connection, from the +Pilot Lite menu bar, select
File > Refresh. For information about controlling a device using +Pilot
Lite, see your +Pilot Lite User Manual.
Discovering a VSM6801+ Module
To discover your module, your Pilot or Navigator software must be in
Build mode. Follow these steps:
1. If the Discovery window is not open, click Tools > Discovery in the
main menu.
A Discovery window opens, most likely in the bottom left corner of
the screen.
2. Click Options, and then click Add.
3. Enter the IP address of the frame that contains your module, the
frame that contains your ICE6800+ module, or the frame that
contains a 6800+ETH module that provides access to your module.
4. Click OK to close the Add IP address window, and then OK again
to close the Discovery Options window.
5. Click Start.
This triggers Pilot or Navigator to run a discovery.
6. When your discovery is complete, Discovery Completed is
displayed in the Discovery window. To continue, click Save, to
save the contents of your discovery to the Discovery folder of the
Navigation pane.
You can now switch to Control mode by selecting Operational Mode >
Control from the main menu. Double-click VSM6801+ in the
Navigation pane. The Control window opens, displaying the module’s
controls.

Pilot Lite Fails to Communicate with Installed Modules
Confirm that the following items are not the reason for the
communication failure:
32
•
The proper module slot has not been specified (+ Pilot Lite is not
communicating with the appropriate slot). See your FR6802+
Frame Installation and Operation Manual for more information on
slot identification.
•
The COM port is used elsewhere (Check that the correct COM port
is configured in + Pilot Lite and that another application is not
using that COM port).
•
The actual frame ID does not match with the two DIP switch
settings in the back of the frame (+ Pilot Lite is not communicating
with the proper frame). See your FR6802+ Frame Installation and
Operation Manual for more information on frame ID switch
settings.
•
A null modem cable is not being used. Between the PC running
+ Pilot Lite and the FR6802+ frame, there should be a null RS-232
modem cable. At minimum, this requires that pins 2 and 3 are
crossed and 5 to 5 for ground.
•
An ICE6800+ or 6800+ETH module is installed in the frame
(+ Pilot Lite control is disabled if an ICE6800+ or 6800+ETH
control module is installed in the frame; ICE6800+ and 6800+ETH
modules are used for CCS control).
VSM6801+ Installation and Operation Manual
Appendix A: Communication and Control Troubleshooting Tips
•
A legacy 6800 series product is in the frame. + Pilot Lite cannot
communicate with legacy 6800 series products. They will not be
discovered or controlled by + Pilot Lite, although they can be
installed in the FR6802+XF frame and work using card-edge
controls. The module must be from the 6800+ product family.
•
Check that the back module does not have any bent pins, following
this procedure:
a. Unplug the front module.
b. Unscrew and remove the back module.
c. View the 20-pin spring connector at the bottom of the back
module.(See Figure A-1.)
20-pin
connector
Figure A-1. Back Module to Front Module Connector
This connector should not have any bent or pressed pins. Even
a slightly depressed or bent pin may cause genlock issues.
d. If there are bent pins, carefully reposition them to their correct
positions.
If this is not possible, you can exchange the back module for a
new one (order part number VSM6801+DR).
+
Pilot Lite Does Not Find All Modules in Frame
If a discovery is started too soon after frame power-up, + Pilot Lite will
not find all the installed modules. Refresh + Pilot Lite (File >
Refresh), and ensure that installed modules are fully powered-up first
before discovery.
VSM6801+ Installation and Operation Manual
33
Appendix A: Communication and Control Troubleshooting Tips
If a module is plugged into the frame after a discovery, + Pilot Lite
does not automatically detect the module. Refresh + Pilot Lite (File >
Refresh) to discover the newly installed module.
If a Legacy 6800 series product is in the frame, + Pilot Lite will not
detect it. + Pilot Lite cannot communicate with legacy 6800 series
products. They will not be discovered or controlled by + Pilot Lite
although they can be installed in the FR6802+XF frame and work using
card edge controls. For + Pilot Lite to find a module, it must be from
the 6800+ product family.
+
Pilot Lite or CCS Software Application Not Responding
+ Pilot Lite and CCS applications such as Navigator or Pilot cannot run
on the same PC at the same time. Both applications can be installed, but
only one can be opened at a time.
+
Pilot Lite Cannot Control a Module Showing
in the Control Window
Consider these questions:
+
•
Did you physically set the jumper for local control? If so, set this
jumper to the REM position for remote control.
•
Does the card name in the control window physically match the
card type in the frame?
•
Is the module properly seated in the frame? Check the positioning
of the module in its slot in the frame.
•
Does the Control window indicate the device is “ready”? The
device may be powered off or disconnected from the network.
Pilot Lite Status Bar Reports “Not Ready”
+ Pilot Lite reports each device’s connection status in the status bar. If
the connection status message reads “Not Ready,” check the following:
•
Is the module properly seated in the frame? Check the position of
the module in the frame.
•
Is the frame connected to the network? Check the device’s network
connection.
If the status bar still reports no status or “Not Ready” for the frame or
device, try restarting + Pilot Lite.
34
VSM6801+ Installation and Operation Manual
Appendix A: Communication and Control Troubleshooting Tips
CCS Software Application or Remote Control Panel Does
Not Communicate with Module
CCS software applications (such as Pilot, CoPilot, and Navigator) and
remote control panels require the purchase and installation of an
ICE6800+ module in an FR6802+ frame (or an ICE6800+ or
6800+ETH module in a FR6802+QXF frame) in order to communicate
remotely via Ethernet.
Alarm Query Fails When a Device Reboots
When you reboot a device connected to your PC, the alarm traffic
hitting the network may cause an alarm query request to time out and
fail. While the query does not automatically retry, it will post an “Alarm
query failed” message to the Diagnostics window.
To clear an “Alarm query failed” message, right-click inside
the Diagnostics window, and then select Refresh from the resulting
context menu.

Frames Fail to Communicate with the PC after a Power
Failure
You must exit the software and restart after the frame recovers from its
power failure. To restore communications between the PC and the
frames, ensure that the frames have three or more minutes to recover
from the power failure before you exit the application and restart the
PC.
Module Does Not Seem to Work
Although the following troubleshooting tips may seem obvious, please
take the time to ensure the following:
•
All appropriate rear connections are securely made
•
The board is securely installed (with no bent pins)
•
The frame is turned on
