INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of the B/W Quad Processor from Lorex.
The B/W Quad Processor turns any monitor into a Quad monitor with security features. Connect up to four
cameras to the Quad Splitter and view all four locations simultaneously in Real-Time (30 fps). The Quad
Processor is an ideal security solution for small to medium sized commercial enterprises as it allows you to
use an existing monitor as a 4 Channel Observation System.
Connect the Quad Processor to a Time Lapse VCR or DVR to capture footage and enable alarm recording.
You can also connect PIR motion sensors to the Quad Processor in order to have Motion Detection
capability. To learn more about this system or to find out more about other products available, please visit

ALARM AND VIDEO LOSS
When an Alarm occurs, you will see the
icon appear on the channel where motion detection is taking
place. If you have set the Internal Audible Alarm to ON, then you will also hear a Buzzer.
A Channel that does not have a camera connected will show the
icon,
indicating a Video Loss. The red LED light above the channel with a Video Loss
will blink. If you have set the Internal Audible Alarm to ON, then you will also
hear a Buzzer when video is disconnected.

RS232 REMOTE PROTOCOL
The RS232 / Alarm input allows you to control the Quad Processor system from your PC. In order to
achieve this, you will require an RS232 COM Port communication program installed on your PC. There are
many of these software programs available on the internet, some of which are free.
The remote connection on the Quad Processor uses 8 data bits, 1 start bit, and 1 stop bit.
Below is an example of the data stream with the control codes shown.

TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
REMEDY
Unable to view cameras
• If you are using a TV as a slave monitor, you may need
to set the channel as AUX (or sometimes referred to as
“TV / Video”).
• Please check if the wiring between the monitor and the
Quad Processor is correct.
• Make sure that the camera is receiving power
No Power
• Check the power source cord connections
• Check that there is power at the outlet
Continuous Alarm
• Set the Alarm Polarity according to whether your PIR
motion sensor is Normally Open or Normally Closed.
• If no motion sensors are connected, set that channel’s
Alarm Polarity to OFF.
Bad picture quality after Power ON
• Connect the video cable on Channel 1 before Power
ON. The system will automatically detect electrical
settings as PAL or NTSC.
