Introduction to the Automatic Tracking Module
The ATM is designed to provide the functionality of a mechanical pan, tilt and zoom camera for
close surveillance. This comes in the form of a tiny maintenance free unit, which has a silent
operation.
Whilst the HD sensor monitors a wide field of view, the output is a standard definition windowed
version of the video. Thereby offering a 3x lossless digital zoom.
The automatic motion tracking feature constantly monitors the entire field of view. Any movement
detected at the camera sensor is output in the form of SD video.
This allows the camera to be unattended whilst it effectively captures any movement in its field of
view from its multi mega pixel sensor.
Since the output video feed is SD the system only requires standard definition recording and
transmission equipment to support it.
The ATM features an integrated mini joystick controller, which enables the user to change a wide
range of camera parameters.
The ATM is supplied with a fitted 2.5mm lens. In addition to this there are two M12 pinhole lenses
supplied in the kit, as well as a long lens adaptor. C and CS Mount adaptors are also included.
This range of lens options allows users to select the lens that is most appropriate for a particular
scenario.
The ATM runs from 12V DC.
It is controlled using the PelcoD, PelcoP and Sony Visca command protocols on either RS232 or
RS485 comms interfaces. The baudrate is user selectable via the camera’s on-screen display menu.
The initial factory default setting for the serial port is RS232 at 9600 baud.

Connections
The ATM kit is supplied with an interconnect cable. There are four connectors on the cable, these
are:
•
•
•
•
9-way D-Type Serial Communications Connector
Red RCA connector for DC power
Yellow RCA connector for Composite Video Out
5-Way female Molex Picoblade connects to the ATM camera
SD Video Connector
9-Way D-Type connector
DC Power
Connector
The 9-way D-Type connector can be connected to a serial to USB adaptor, the other end of the USB
adaptor is then connected to a PC to allow for software control of the ATM.
The red RCA connector should be connected to the DC mains power supply.
The yellow RCA connector is the SD video output from the camera. This should be connected to the
recording or video transmission equipment of choice.
The 5-Way female Molex connector should be connected to the 5-Way Molex male connector on
the ATM camera body.

Joystick Control
On the rear of the ATM camera there is a mini joystick which allows the user to control a range of
functions within the camera.

Zoom Function
There are six preset zoom positions available, each short press on the centre of the joystick steps
the zoom position in once until the last position is reached, another click returns the image to fully
wide.
Motion Detection
If motion detection is enabled the camera will automatically Pan, Tilt, and Zoom in on the motion
area, while there is no motion detected the camera will return to wide.
Presets
The ATM supports user presets, these can be saved and recalled via the serial comms link. The last
PTZ position the device was at before power down will be recalled on boot up.

OSD - On-Screen Display Menu
The camera supports an OSD. To enter this feature press the centre of the mini joystick in for about
five seconds, the mini joystick can be found on the rear of the ATM camera.
Once the OSD has been activated the user will observe the camera parameters that can be altered.
An example of the OSD screen is shown below.
Return Character
In the above example the OSD is pointing towards the FOCUS ADJ menu, since this is the
highlighted parameter. Since this parameter has a Return Character next to it there are more
options available within this sub-menu. Pressing the mini joystick in will select this option and the
OSD will enter the sub-menu for FOCUS ADJ.
Moving the joystick up and down or left and right, as applicable whilst in the parameter sub-menus
will allow the user to change any of the many parameters the ATM camera supports.
If the current example FOCUS ADJ menu is selected it will bring up an overlay on the current
video image. The overlay aids the user to get the camera to the optimal focus. An example screen
showing this is below.
Address Selection and OSD Remote
Control
The Camera Address can be set via the
OSD menu, the allowed range is between
1 and 6.
If the address is set to 7 the OSD menu
can be controlled using PTZ commands
on any of the supported protocols via the
serial comms connection.

Software Control
The ATM camera supports serial communication control over RS232 and RS485.
It supports PelcoD, PelcoP and Sony Visca protocols.
The user may choose to use a software controller of their choice or use the VE Camera Controller.
This software application is included on the USB memory stick in the kit. The user should install the
Software application on a PC. The image below shows what the software application looks like.
To load in the correct preferences for the ATM camera the user should load the configuration
file “MicroATM.ccc”, which is included on the USB memory stick. Use the File menu to Load the
Configuration as shown below.

It is now necessary to connect the USB to serial comms lead to the PC. The operating system of the
computer will allocate this a COM port number.
Once this connection between the comms lead and the computer’s operating system has been
made the user can go ahead and connect the application to the COM port. In the example below
the port COM3 has been selected. Now select Connect.
Now that the software application is connected to the comms lead the functions of the software
can be used. In the example below the pan right command has been selected. This will cause
the ATM camera to digitally pan right. Similar commands for pan left, tilt up & down and zoom
functions can also be tried out using the intuitive software user interface.

Changing the Lens
The ATM camera
can be fitted with
different lenses
according to the field
of view required for a
particular scenario.
 Lens options can be
simply swapped out by
screwing a new lens into
the front thread of the ATM
Camera
The lenses can be
swapped out by simply
unscrewing which ever
lens is currently fitted to
the camera and screwing
in the new one.
The standard lens fitted is
2.5mm offering a 85° x 64°
field of view.
In the kit, are replacement 2.1mm
(120° field of view) and 4.3mm (60° field of view) lenses.
Long Lens Adaptor
M12 lenses with a back focal length of >3.2mm will require the M12 long lens adaptor. This is
supplied in the camera kit.
The M12 long lens adaptor screws into the front thread of the camera in the same way as any lens
fitting.
This allows M12 lenses with a back focal length of >3.2 mm to be fitted and focused.
C and CS Mount Adaptors
For fitting larger C mount or CS mount lenses to the ATM Camera use the adaptor included in the
kit. These adaptors also screw onto the front thread of the camera.
