INTRODUCTION
Tailgating/Piggybacking
Access control systems are the heart of most security systems. From
smart cards to fingerprinting and even iris recognition technology, there are
many different systems in place to restrict access to secure areas. But there
is one way to completely bypass every one of these systems - with the simple
act of holding the door open. Some people do this out of politeness, as we
are all taught, while others are unknowingly followed through these secure
doors by unauthorized persons. All access control systems, regardless of the
technology used, are vulnerable to this problem.
T-DAR Solution
®
Newton’s patent pending T-DAR® system uses sophisticated threedimensional optical imaging to detect Piggybacking and Tailgating through
secure portals. The Newton T-DAR system detects persons and differentiates
them from carts or other objects in or around the secure side of the portal and
then utilities Newton's sophisticated Stereo Machine Vision technology to
identify and tag each human within the field of view of the tracking (overhead)
camera. It maintains that tag on that person so long as he or she (or some
portion of the person) remains in the view of the camera. That information is
than combined with the data provided by the access device, door contacts
and other input data to determine if the tagged person is a legal transit or is
tailgating / piggybacking.
Once the status of a person is determined to not be a legal transit but
to be tailgating or piggybacking, the T-DAR system then actuates any number
of possible results, all controlled and selected from an easy to use User
Interface. These alarms range from local alarm sirens, flashing lights and
voice annunciation through remote alarm, real-time delivery of video of the
event to security forces, activation of internal or existing DVR systems and
physical events such as the locking of other doors to prevent the intruder from
further penetrating the secure area.
When the T-DAR system is used in conjunction with physical barriers
such as security portals, mantraps and security revolving doors, the system
can prevent tailgating/piggybacking as well as detecting and alarming on
those occurrences. In addition to the model described in this manual, other
models of the T-DAR system are available for use in:

Critical Elements for a Successful T-DAR Installation
The T-DAR® system does a superb job of detecting violations of access control
security systems. In order to accomplish this task, the T-DAR requires several
critical elements and/or signals from the door and the access control system as
detailed in this manual. Four of the most important elements are:
1. Valid access grant signals must be immediate. The valid access signal
from the access control system must by occur at the same time or before the
door is unlocked to allow an entry and must have duration of at least 300 ms.
In some instances this may require the use of a timer module to allow for
adequate lock activation time. In all circumstances, if a person crosses the
door threshold prior to the receipt of a valid access grant signal by the T-DAR
unit, that person will cause an alarm by the T-DAR system. Especially in the
case of installations where multiple valid entries are allowed on a single door
open cycle, it is critical to confirm that the valid entry signal is reaching the TDAR unit prior to a person crossing the door plane and that a separate signal
for each valid entry is received by the T-DAR unit.
2. Door contact/door position switch signals must be immediate. These
signals must be sent to the T-DAR unit at the same that the door is opened.
Unless it can be verified that the access control system can give immediate
door open signals, the T-DAR unit must have an independent circuit for this
function that allows isolation from the access control system. It is
recommended that mechanical switches of the roller and plunger types be
avoided in favor of magnetic switch door contacts.
3. Adequate and consistent lighting are required for accurate operation of
the T-DAR system. The T-DAR system uses stereo video analysis to
determine three-dimensional characteristics of targets and requires sufficient
lighting to perform this task. Equal and consistent lighting from the ceiling
down allows the system to identify and track targets in all areas of the
detection pattern. Lighting from the sides or the floor is not helpful; in fact it
may detract from system performance. If adequate down lighting is not
currently in place, additional lighting must be added. Invisible (near IR)
lighting is available from Newton.
4. LineLock input is critical if low frequency fluorescents are utilized for
lighting.
An ac wall-mounted transformer is included in the T-DAR control unit. If the
lighting in the area that is protected by the T-DAR is provided by low
frequency (older style-line frequency) fluorescents, this transformer or other
low voltage AC source must be used to ensure proper operation of the T-DAR
system. Any source of 6 to 30 VAC will provide the correct line locking of the
T-Dar system to the building lighting.

Tips for a Successful T-DAR Installation
Six of the most critical fundamentals are:
1.
Valid access grant signals must be immediate. The valid access
signal from the access control system must by occur at the same
time or before the door is unlocked to allow an entry and must have
duration of at least 300 ms. In some instances this may require the
use of a timer module to allow for adequate lock activation time. In
all circumstances, if a person crosses the door threshold prior to
the receipt of a valid access grant signal by the T-DAR unit, that
person will cause an alarm by the T-DAR system. Especially in the
case of installations where multiple valid entries are allowed on a
single door open cycle, it is critical to confirm that the valid entry
signal is reaching the T-DAR unit prior to a person crossing the
door plane and that a separate signal for each valid entry is
received by the T-DAR unit.
2.
Door contact/door position switch signals must be immediate.
These signals must be sent to the T-DAR unit at the same that the door is
opened. Unless it can be verified that the access control system can give
immediate door open signals, the T-DAR unit must have an independent
circuit for this function that allows isolation from the access control system. It
is recommended that mechanical switches of the roller and plunger types be
avoided in favor of magnetic switch door contacts.
3.
Adequate and consistent downward lighting are required for
accurate operation of the T-DAR system. The T-DAR system uses stereo
video analysis to determine three-dimensional characteristics of targets and
requires sufficient lighting to perform this task. Equal and consistent lighting
from the ceiling down allows the system to identify and track targets in all
areas of the detection pattern. Lighting from the sides or the floor is not
helpful; in fact it may detract from system performance. If adequate down
lighting is not currently in place, additional lighting must be added. Invisible
(near IR) lighting is available from Newton.
4.
The DC200LP Stereo Camera Head must be mounted at the
proper distance from the door and the proper camera part number must
be specified. Use the chart found in this manual to determine the correct
distance. If the DC200LP Stereo Camera head is mounted at other distances,
the T-DAR unit will not be able to properly track persons and may have erratic
behavior.
5.
Inward Swinging doors must use an I100 Door Position Indicator.
If an I100 Door Position Indicator is not used for doors that swing into the field
of view of the camera, erratic operation will result.
25
6.
LineLock input is critical if low frequency fluorescents are utilized
for lighting.
An ac wall-mounted transformer is included in the T-DAR control unit. If the
lighting in the area that is protected by the T-DAR is provided by low
frequency (older style-line frequency) fluorescents, this transformer or other
low voltage AC source must be used to ensure proper operation of the T-DAR
system. Any source of 6 to 30 VAC will provide the correct line locking of the
T-Dar system to the building lighting.

Site Considerations
There are several factors that must be considered when determining the application
of T-DAR for the solution of tailgating and piggybacking. These factors are detailed
as follows:
Consistent Downward Lighting
The T-DAR requires adequate and consistent downward lighting to properly detect
tailgate violations. Failure to provide adequate lighting will result in elevated false
alarm rates as well as the possibility of the system failing to detect violations. The
minimum acceptable lighting level is 300 Lux (30 Ft-Candles) from above. The
measurement should be taken so than only lighting emanating from above (the
ceiling in most cases) is included in the measurement. Lighting from the sides of the
viewing area can actually detract from the robustness of the installation. In some
cases it may be necessary to add additional lighting above the desired detection
area to produce the required results. Invisible (near IR) lighting is available from
Newton if desired to enhance lighting without human interference.
Direct Sunlight
Direct sunlight can have a negative impact on system performance. Proposed
locations that are awash in direct sunlight should be qualified by the manufacturer.
27
Before You Begin
Before you begin any installation, make sure that the proposed installation locations
that have been chosen provide adequate room for the devices as well as any
electrical conduit that may be necessary. Dimensions for the specific components
may be found in this manual
Local Device Placement
The local devices such as the door position sensor, camera head, and Annunciator
Unit need to be placed within a certain linear distance of the controller to minimize
the effects of voltage drop. This distance is 200 feet, and should not be exceeded
unless a distance extender is used. Information about the cost and part number of
the Data Extender is available from the Newton Security. Whenever possible, local
devices shall be placed on the secure side of the portal being monitored to reduce
the risk of vandalism and attempts to defeat.
Control Unit Placement
The Control Unit should be located in a place that allows for access to the unit, is
relatively clean, and affords the unit protection from damage or vandalism. The unit
should be located within an acceptable distance to the access control system so that
door status signals and inter-system communications and signals are not
significantly diminished by voltage drop. Adequate clearance should be maintained
to the sides and top of the unit to facilitate the installation of conduit and ventilation,
and clearance to the front of the unit should meet or exceed the requirements
established for electrical panels by the National Electrical Code (NEC). The Control
Unit is not water-tight, and must be protected from rain and sprayed or blown water.
Annunciator Unit Placement
The Annunciator Unit needs to be located at the security portal being monitored so
that violations are immediately announced to the violator as well as the persons in
the secure area. The Annunciator Unit is fitted with conduit knockouts on the left
and right sides of the unit. Adequate clearance should be maintained to the sides of
the unit to facilitate conduit installation. Additionally, adequate clearance is required
to the front of the unit to allow for adjustment of the volume control. The Annunciator
Unit must be installed outside of the field of view of the stereo camera head.
Event Camera Placement
The event camera should be strategically placed to capture full frontal images of
persons entering the secure area through the portal. The event video output leads
should be protected within armored conduit to help prevent vandalism. Protecting
the camera itself is recommended.
28
Stereo Tracking Head Selection
The stereo camera head must be the correct head for your application: NTSC or
PAL, Visible or Near IR lighting and the correct stereo camera head for the distance
from the stereo camera head to the floor.
NTSC or PAL
Order the correct head for your country system. The Control Unit inputs either type
of systems (software selectable) and the video output will be set to the
corresponding output in the T-DAR User Interface.
Lighting System – Visible or Near IR
Order the correct head for the lighting at your installation. Newton Security supplies
Stereo Camera Heads for both types of lighting systems.
Distance from Stereo Camera Head to Floor
Newton Security supplies stereo camera heads pre-focused and set to the correct
field of view for various camera heights. Select the correct head number from the
table below. Failure to use the correct camera head for your application will result
in the failure of the installation. In addition, the T-DAR User Interface will not allow
the installation to proceed if the correct camera head has not been chosen for your
application.
29
Stereo Tracking Head Placement
The stereo camera head needs to be located based upon the calculations in the
camera head placement chart. Failure to place the camera in the correct location
will lead to false alarms or an altogether failure to detect violations. The calculations
in this chart are based upon door size, camera head height, and lens focal length.

the underside of the lower panel slightly behind and to the right of the main ac
power connector. The connector closest to the ac main connector is for
Portal one.
7. Install and terminate an adequate number of wires to support the inputs and
outputs that will be utilized on the system. Detailed examples of connections
are available in Figure 17.
32
Stereo Tracking Head
The camera head can be mounted utilizing the mounting tabs that accommodate up
to a number 12 screw or a Newton MK200 ceiling mount kit designed to work in a
variety of applications such as drop tile ceiling or hard ceiling. Refer to the MK 200
manual addendum in this manual for specific details. Care should be taken to
ensure adequate access to the connection port on the side of the unit. Refer to
Figure 6 for unit dimensions.
1. Ensure that the stereo tracking head is mounted in the correct location
according to the chart in Figure 16.
2. Ensure that the view of the camera is not obscured by the Annunciator Unit or
any other objects such as exit signs or door closers/operators.
3. For each stereo camera head, install and terminate two video coaxial
connectors with BNC connectors. These cables should already have been
labeled to make them easily identifiable.
4. Attach the coaxial cables to the BNC 90 degree connectors on the inside of
the stereo camera head. The camera head can be opened by removing the
screws in the access plate of the unit.
5. Install and terminate one Ethernet cable (straight through) in the stereo
camera head.
6. Attach the Ethernet cable to the Power/Control connector on the stereo
camera head.
7. Ensure Camera 2 is closest to the secure door and Camera 1 is towards the
exiting side of the door
Annunciator Unit
The Annunciator Unit is mounted utilizing the mounting tabs that accommodate up to
a number 12 screw. Care should be taken to ensure adequate access to the
connection port on the top of the unit, as well as the volume control on the front of
the unit. The unit should be mounted at least eight feet above the finished floor.
Refer to Figure 4 for unit dimensions.
1. Ensure that the Annunciator Unit is mounted outside of the field of view of the
stereo camera head.
2. Install and terminate one Ethernet cable (straight through) on the Annunciator
Unit.
3. Attach the Ethernet cable to the annunciator connector on the Control Unit.
33
Event Camera
The event camera should be mounted in accordance with the manufacturer’s
requirements. It is strongly recommended that vandal-resistant camera enclosures
and wire ways be incorporated in the installation.
1. Install, terminate, and install one video coaxial cable at the event camera.
2. Install, terminate, and install the power supply power cable (Power must not
be obtained from the T-DAR controller, a separate power supply must be
provided for the installation).
3. Adjust the focus and other settings as required to obtain a usable image.
4. Adjust the sync settings of the camera per the manufacturers’ procedure to
optimize the quality of the event video playback to be streamed out of the TDAR control unit.
Door Position Sensor (Door Encoder)
The Door Position Sensor is used to define the specific location of an inward
swinging door at all points of the arc that the door crosses and is required for doors
that swing into the field of view of the tracking head. This allows the T-DAR to
ignore the image signature of the door and focus instead on tracking objects of
interest. See Figure 7 for a picture of the Door Position Sensor
The Door Position Sensor is mounted on the secure side of the door on the door
frame above the top hinge if possible, otherwise as high as is practical. The unit
must be oriented so that the arm rides on the surface of the door throughout the
entire arc without encountering any resistance. The cable for connecting the sensor
should be fished out of the wall/frame and terminated into the unit. The cable is a
straight through Ethernet (cat 5) cable terminated with an RJ-45 connector. The
other end of the cable is then terminated as flying leads on the portal specific
connector as described in figure 35.
Note, the cable length should be no more than 200 ft linear from the controller. Use
an EA101 or EA101A extender for cable runs more than 200 Feet,
34
CONNECTION TO ACCESS CONTROL SYSTEMS
Door Valid Access Grant Switch
The valid access grant switch must be electrically isolated from the access control
system to allow for proper operation. This will typically require the installation of a
double pole/double throw relay that controls the lock and also provides an output to
the T-DAR system. This is acceptable for those applications where access through
the portal is on a one-by-one basis, meaning that only one person may enter the
secure area when the door is opened, and the door must fully close before the next
person may enter the area. Applications where the access procedures and policy
allow for multiple valid accesses on one door access cycle (opening) may require
the use of a timer module. This is necessary to ensure that there is no noticeable
latency in the receipt of a valid access grant signal by T-DAR and the actual release
of the door lock. It should be noted that it is acceptable for the T-DAR to receive the
signal before the door is unlocked, but not after. Failure to use isolated circuits or
using access control system auxiliary outputs/relays to simulate valid access switch
activity may result in poor system performance. There can be no noticeable latency
in the receipt of valid access grant switch signals by T-DAR.
1. The valid access grant switch will connect to the Portal Digital Input
terminal and to either ground or +12v (or applicable source voltage)
dependant upon installation type.
2. The distance from the control unit to the valid access grant switch should
be kept to less than 200 foot. Contact the manufacturer for guidance on
longer distances.
3. Refer to Figure 17 for detailed examples of configuration.
Door Position Switch
The door position switch must be independent of the access control system to allow
for proper operation. This will typically require the installation of a double
pole/double throw door switch, or the addition of a second door contact. Failure to
use isolated circuits or using access control system outputs/relays to simulate door
contact activity can result in poor system performance. There can be no noticeable
latency in the receipt of door position switch signals by T-DAR.
1. The door position switch will connect to the Portal Contact terminal and to
either ground or +12v (or applicable source voltage) dependant upon
installation type.
2. The distance from the control unit to the door position switch should be
kept to less than 200 foot. Contact the manufacturer for guidance on
longer distances.
3. Refer to Figure 17 for detailed examples of configuration.
35
Relay Connections
The T-DAR T-1010 and T-2010 control units are equipped with four relays on the
General connector plus one relay on each of the Portal connectors. These relays
may be used to signal various alarm conditions based on user configurable options
in the user interface. All of these relays are single pole/single throw, and are
normally open. Various degrees of customization are possible through coordination
with the manufacturer. Refer to Figure 17 for detailed examples.
Figure 17 - Typical Configuration

Configuring the T-DAR
The T-DAR user interface (UI) is used to set-up and optimize the detection
performance of the system. The following instructions provide guidelines that
will enable the installer to quickly and effectively place the T-DAR system in
service.
Viewing Images
The installer should select the Show Camera Views view from the monitor
page. This will display a quad image on the CCTV monitor showing the
tracking image, event camera image, and tracking head cameras 1 and 2
simultaneously. Using this image, the installer is able to clearly see what the
system is viewing in real time.
Calibration
After the unit has been installed and the UI is connected to the unit, a
calibration must be performed. The purpose of the calibration is to ‘teach’ the
system what the area of detection looks like when the area is empty of people.
Objects that are not normally in the scene such as carts and parcels should
be removed before the calibration is performed. This clean calibration will
then allow the system to recognize objects introduced into the scene and
track them accordingly while ignoring those objects that are normal to the
scene.
Inward Swinging Door
The following is a description of the process for performing the calibration
when an inward swinging door sensor is used. After the sensor has been
terminated at the Control Unit, the door sensor should be powered up and
tested by slowly moving the arm back and forth. This should result in a
change in the current sensor value section of the installer I/O page in the
User Interface. If no change shows in the current sensor values as the door
is swung, check the wiring; it is probably reversed.
To calibrate the door, follow the instructions on the screen when the Clear
Calibration button is clicked. Upon completion of the calibration, verify it was
successful by observing the tracking image to determine if the door is still
visible to the system as it is swung though its full range of motion from open
to closed.
Testing the Units
The units should be periodically tested to ensure that they are functioning
properly. This can be easily accomplished by walking out of the door, not
allowing it to close, and then walking back in without using a card. This
should generate a local and remote alarm. If an alarm is not correctly
annunciated (i.e. no audible message) repeat the above steps. If the system
still does not operate correctly, cycle the power on the Control Unit and repeat
41
the test. If the system still does not respond, call for Newton Security or your
integrator for additional support.
Capturing Events
Alarm event video is captured and stored in volatile memory on the system.
There is no onboard persistent storage of alarm video information; if the
system power is interrupted, all stored video will be lost. Use of an external
DVR system is recommended if permanent storage of alarm events is
required.
Configuration and Setup of the T-DAR Software
Utilizing the T-DAR user interface, connect to the system to be configured and follow
the steps as outlined below to configure the T-DAR system for operation. To
conduct the set-up operation, the following items will be needed:
• An Ethernet-capable computer running the T-DAR user interface software
• A video monitor or television with video input
• The T-DAR controller software and camera calibration CD’s that came with
the system
• All associated cables and connectors for connecting devices such as
computers, Ethernet hubs, and monitors to the T-DAR controller (Note: a
cross-over cable may be used for direct PC/Laptop to the Control Unit)
Once these components have been supplied and properly connected, the T-DAR
system may be powered on. The following steps will complete the set-up process.
1. Connect to the T-DAR controller using the IP address on the label on the
inside of the controller door. (Or with a serial connection-see Connection
above.)
a. The lower left corner of the user interface displays the connection
status. If a connection can not be made, please refer to the
troubleshooting section for further assistance.
2. On the monitor tab in the user interface, change the Display mode to Show
Camera Views.
3. Observe the video monitor and note the change in the video on the screen
when this change is made.
a. If any video signals are missing, or if any of the signals are rolling or
noisy, please refer to the troubleshooting section for further assistance.
4. If a T-2000 two-door system is to be set-up,, each Portal is set-up
independently. After set-up of Portal 1, change from Portal 1 to Portal 2 using
the pull down box and repeat step 3.
5. In the user interface, change tabs to the Setup I/O tab
6. Set the time and date on the controller
7. Give the T-DAR system Portals a logical name in the Portal Name space
8. Verify that all of the alarm devices are enabled (checked) and that the Alarm
Timeout is at least 5 seconds.
42
9. Click on the initial set-up page and draw a green line at the base of the door
jam. This will automatically set the proper regions of interest
10. The System should now be operating and ready for testing. (See testing the
System Pg. 41)

Setup I/O
The Setup I/O page consists of a pull-down, an Alarm section, a Reset Event
Statistics button, a Change Admin Password button, a Portal Name box, a Time
section, and a Policy section. These items are detailed below.
Figure 26 - Set-up I/O
Alarm
The alarm section consists of check boxes that allow the user to disable all of the
various alarm annunciation provided by the Annunciator Unit. There is also an
Alarm Timeout box that defines how long an alarm will annunciate for before
resetting. Setting this value to zero causes the unit to be in manual reset mode only.
Below the Alarm Timeout is a Reset Alarm button that resets the T-DAR alarm when
clicked.
Policy
The Allow Multiple Entries per Access Cycle check-box is used to set the T-DAR
system to stack cards. Card stacking to the ability of T-DAR to recognize multiple
valid access signals and to retain that number for as long as the door is open or 15
seconds has passed, whichever comes first. As an example, if an authorized user
presents a card to the system and then opens the door, two more people can also
present their cards and walk thru the door without T-DAR alarming. However, if the
53
second person waits too long, or if the door is allowed to close, then the card stack
will be zeroed out. This function must e selected if multiple entries are desired OR
there is not an actual door, such as in a hallway/corridor application where door
status cannot be monitored.
Playback
The Playback section lists the four types of alarms that will cause the T-DAR system
to generate an event video replay. Next to each of these titles is a text box where
the user can enter specific text that is displayed in the event playback video image.
Additionally, there is a check-box that is used to enable text overlay of the user
specified text as opposed to the default text as set by the manufacturer.
Video Replay
The Video Replay section allows the user to determine the length of the event video
replay image clip that is displayed by the system. The Start time defines how long
before the actual alarm is received that replay starts from, and the END time
determines how long after the alarm was received the video is recorded.
Portal Name
The Portal Name box allows the user to define a specific logical name to a door,
such as Door 569, North Entrance. This name will be displayed in the event video
playback loop. Once a name has been entered here, all of the Portal Control pulldowns will reflect the change in the name.
Time
The Time section allows the user to select the time that is maintained in the
controller. This time stamp is also displayed in all event video images. Clicking the
Set Time button will set the time on the controller to be the same as the PC used to
run the UI. It should be noted that daylight savings time corrections must be
performed manually.
Reset Event Statistics
The Reset Event Statistics is used to reset the statistics located on the Monitor page.
Change Admin Password
The admin password is the second highest level of access available to users. This
allows access to the Monitor, Setup I/O, and Setup View tabs of the system. To
configure the password, the button is clicked and then a password is typed either on
the on-screen keyboard or on the host computer keyboard. If a mistake is made,
use the backspace key to remove characters one by one, or the clear key to clear all
of the characters simultaneously. Once the password is entered, press the OK
button to make password permanent.

Installer Camera Settings
The Installer Camera Settings page consists of a pull-down, an Image Type section,
an Update Now button, a Viewing Window, a Physical Setup section, a Sensitivity
Section, and a Configuration Section. These are detailed below:
Figure 27 - Installer Camera Settings
Image Type
The image type section is used to select what camera is viewed when the system
process is stopped. To stop the system process, click on Run on the Menu bar at
the top of the screen and select Stop Running. This will make images available in
the Viewing Window, and different images can then be selected using the
associated radio buttons.
Update Now
The update now button causes the system to update the image in the Viewing
Window when the button is clicked and system processes are stopped.
Viewing Window
The Viewing Window displays the images selected in the Image Type section when
the system is stopped.
55
Physical Setup
The physical setup section consists of two buttons used to control the camera
calibration process. The Calibrate button is used to teach the system about the
scene that is being monitored. When the system has learned the environment, the
tracking image will become stable and black unless objects are detected. The Clear
Calibration button is used to expose the raw tracking image. Using this raw tracking
image, the installer can determine the effect of various objects in the field of view on
the tracking system. Also, refer to the Clear Calibration section for additional
information on use of the Clear Calibration button when using a Door Position
Sensor.
***IMPORTANT NOTE***
Calibrations must be performed when the scene is completely stable. The
scene must be stable for several seconds after the button is clicked, until the
image stabilizes at a black level.
Camera Calibration
The camera calibration section contains a Load from File button that will allow the
user to load camera calibration files into the controller. Pressing the button will open
a file explorer window that will allow the user to specify the location of the calibration
to be loaded. After the file is selected, the controller will need to be restarted (mains
power interrupted) to enable the new files.
Sensitivity
The sensitivity section contains slider bars for maximum head size, cart sensitivity,
minimum head size, and crawler sensitivity. Adjacent to each of these sliders is a
numeric box that shows the numeric equivalent for the slide position. The values
may be adjusted by either manipulating the slider or through direct entry of the
values in the numeric box. The slider bars are detailed as follows:
About Settings:
The use of stereo machine vision analysis allows the system to assign a fairly
constant numeric value to an object regardless of how far or close the object is to
the camera lens. This number represents the amount of pixels the system needs to
see to place a cross-hair on an object
Maximum Head Size
The maximum head size slider controls the value that determines the largest object
that can be called a head without allowing more than one person to proceed through
the portal. A small amount of trial and error may be necessary to account for items
such as hats and very large hair styles, as well as the use of hooded parkas.
Cart Sensitivity
The cart sensitivity slider controls the value that determines the level of sensitivity
used when comparing carts to possible persons.
56
Minimum Head Size
The minimum head size slider controls the value that determines the smallest object
that can be called a head without incorrectly identifying carried objects as a head.
Crawler Sensitivity
The crawler sensitivity slider controls the value that determines the size a specific
object must be larger than to be called crawler (crawling person).
Configuration
The configuration section is used to define the regions of interest within the scene
that are monitored for tracking activity. The regions are selected by clicking on the
adjacent radio button, and are then defined by drawing a box in the Viewing Window
with the mouse pointer. Additionally, the values may be entered in the numeric box
adjacent to each region.
Drawing a Box
To draw a box in the Viewing Window, the image displayed must be one of the two
unwarped images. An unwarped image is simply an image that has had the lens
distortion (fisheye) removed. Once an unwarped image is selected, position the
mouse pointer over the top left corner of the area you want to draw the box around.
Click and hold the left mouse button as you drag the box to the size and shape you
desire. Release the mouse when the box is complete, and then move the mouse
pointer out of the image. Accidentally clicking within the perimeter of the box will
instantly resize the box to the exact location where you clicked.
Tailgating
The region of interest for tailgating should be oversized, meaning that it should be
wider and taller than the door and extend out into the secure area several feet. It is
acceptable to simply draw a box around the entire area for tailgate detection.
Crawling
The region of interest for crawling should be slightly wider than the door and only
extend up the wall approximately three feet and extend into the area at least three
feet.
Entry from Public/Exit to Public
These two regions should be identical. This can be accomplished by drawing a box
for only one of the regions and then manually entering the numeric values identically
in the other region. The region should be all the way up the door/wall (the same as
the tailgating region) and should stop inside the door approximately two to three feet.
57
Installer I/O
Figure 28 - Installer I/O
The Installer tabs are for configuring the interface with the other components of the
installed security system. Provisions for configuring the Outputs, Door Setup and
Sensitivity are accessed from these pages. These pages are password protected
for Installer and System Administrators use only.
Portal Selection
On multi-door systems, the selection and setup of the door being viewed is
controlled by the “combo-box” next to the portal name on the tab page. Clicking the
button (downward arrow) next to the name will show the other portal available. Click
on the desired portal name to select that portal. Any changes in outputs or controls
are applicable only to that selected portal.
58
Door Control
The configurable options of the Door Control section allow for adapting T-DAR to
the existing peripherals to correctly trigger the unit. The logic state for these devices,
as used by the T-DAR, is selected by clicking the check box that reflects the
installation. For example, if the door contact passes continuity when the door is
closed the door contact is said to be closed when the door is closed. The same
logic is true for the Access Contact and the Alarm Reset. If there is some question
about the setting here, use the following steps to diagnose the issue:
Door Contact
•
•
•
•
•
•
On the monitor tab, observe the count for door opens (reset the counts on the
setup I/O page if necessary).
Open and hold the door.
If the door opens count increments by one, the switch is set correctly.
If the door open count does not increment, close the door.
If the door open count increments now, then the switch is set incorrectly.
o If the count does not ever change, switch the display mode to Show /O
and observe the display of the I/O function on the screen. I/O
assignments can be seen in Figure 28, page 60.
o If no changes are observed on the screen during testing, verify wiring
of device and controller.
Set the switch correctly and re-test.
Valid Access Contact
•
On the monitor tab, observe the count for Valid Access Contact (reset the
counts on the setup I/O page if necessary).
• Open and hold the door.
• If the Valid Access Contact count increments by one, the switch is set
correctly.
• If the Valid Access Contact count does not increment, close the door.
• If the Valid Access Contact count increments now, then the switch is set
incorrectly.
o If the count does not ever change, switch the display mode to Show /O
and observe the display of the I/O function on the screen
o If no changes are observed on the screen during testing, verify wiring
of device and controller.
• Set the switch correctly and re-test.
59
Outputs
There are five relays on a CB-110 and six relays on a CB-210 for connecting signals
through the T-DAR. The first two relays are for Portal 1, Relay Portal 1-1 and Relay
Portal 1-2. Portal 2 has the next two relays, Relay Portal 2-1 and Relay Portal 2-2.
There is one spare relay for each portal, Portal 1 Relay Spare and Portal 2 Relay
Spare. Activating the relay is caused by enabling the selected relay number to
make contact when an alarm event is present.
For example selecting Suspicious entries set outputs check box 1, will close
Relay Portal 1-1 when a suspicious entry alarm condition exists. Likewise; when
Warnings set outputs check box 5 is clicked, Portal 1 Relay Spare will close for
that event.
Any combination of relays and triggering events may be selected. There is no
specification as to how the relays are to be implemented. Regardless of whatever
the control situation dictates there are three ways to close any of the relays.
Camera Geometry
Camera Geometry defines the physical placement of the stereo tracking head in
relation to the door under surveillance. The installation details for height above floor,
camera center from door and door actual width must be entered in these text boxes.

Critical elements to maintain a properly operating T-DAR
installation
Once correctly installed, the T-DAR system does a superb job of detecting violations
of access control security systems. In order to accomplish this task, the T-DAR
requires several critical elements and/or signals from the door and the access
control system as detailed in this manual. If, after installation, environmental or
access control signal conditions become degraded, the T-DAR system may not
operate properly. Consult the Installation/Setup sections of this manual for the
correct values for these elements. Some of the most important factors that could
cause improper operation are:
1.
Additional or changed programming of the access control system may
cause changes in its output to the T-DAR system.
A.
Valid access grant signals must be immediate. The valid
access signal from the access control system must by occur at the
same time or before the door is unlocked to allow an entry and must
have duration of at least 300 ms. In some instances this may require
the use of a timer module to allow for adequate lock activation time. In
all circumstances, if a person crosses the door threshold prior to the
receipt of a valid access grant signal by the T-DAR unit, that person
will cause an alarm by the T-DAR system. Especially in the case of
installations where multiple valid entries are allowed on a single door
open cycle, it is critical to confirm that the valid entry signal is reaching
the T-DAR unit prior to a person crossing the door plane and that a
separate signal for each valid entry is received by the T-DAR unit.
B.
Door contact/door position switch signals must be
immediate. These signals must be sent to the T-DAR unit at the same
that the door is opened. Unless it can be verified that the access
control system can give immediate door open signals, the T-DAR unit
must have an independent circuit for this function that allows isolation
from the access control system. It is recommended that mechanical
switches of the roller and plunger types be avoided in favor of
magnetic switch door contacts.
64
2.
Lighting Conditions may have changed.
A.
Adequate and consistent lighting are required for accurate
operation of the T-DAR system. The T-DAR system uses stereo
video analysis to determine three-dimensional characteristics of targets
and requires sufficient lighting to perform this task. Equal and
consistent lighting allows the system to identify and track targets in all
areas of the detection pattern.
B.
Sunlight exposure to the protected area may have changed.
Direct sunlight exposure in protected areas can under certain
conditions cause improper operation of the T-DAR unit and may need
to be mitigated.
3.
Power to existing event cameras may have changed.
A.
Event cameras on multi-door systems (T-2000) must be
powered with ac (alternating current) on the same leg of the 3Phase line. This allows the independent video signals to be synced.
Failure to have synced video signals will result in distorted and
unusable event video replay clips. Single door systems (T-1000) may
use DC (direct current) powered event cameras.
4.
Temperature conditions may have changed or the T-DAR unit may need
service.
A.
The T-DAR units must be placed in areas that maintain
suitable temperatures to operate properly. Consult the Product
Description or Specifications portions of this manual for suitable
conditions for each T-DAR component. The CB100/200 Control Unit
utilizes long life fans but these may need service after a number of
years.
Note: The visible LED’s on the side of the CB/100/200 provide visual
indication of over temperature conditions. The Status and Alarm LED’s
flash yellow if the CB100/200 is over the recommended temperature
and flash red if the temperature limit has been reached and the T-DAR
unit is no longer functioning. In addition, the S100 Annunciator red
signal light flashes continuously if the T-DAR unit has shutdown.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting guides
This section provides fundamental hardware troubleshooting for the T-DAR. For
problems that are not covered in this section, contact your local Newton Security Inc.
Authorized Distributor.
Tips for getting a good image
♦ Make sure that the light is consistently illuminated across the inspection
area.
♦ Ensure the floor; walls and surrounding physical environment are free
from bright reflections.
Use Stereo Tracking Heads with longer focal lengths to produce more accurate
images. Check with your Newton Security Inc. Authorized Distributor regarding
availability of Stereo Tracking Heads for special installations.
Lighting
The minimum acceptable amount of lighting for proper operation of the
T-DAR system is 30fc (foot candle) or 300lux measured approximately 48
inches above the floor and at arms length from the body. If the
lighting is below this level, it is required that the lighting be
increased to a level comparable to the guidance issued by the
Illuminating Engineer Society of North America (IESNA) for Performance
of Visual Tasks, High Contrast, which calls for approximately 30fc to
50fc (300 to 500 Lux).

Problems Communicating with the T-DAR
Try the following first:
♦ The user interface
will not connect with ♦ Wait 30 seconds and try reconnecting.
the T-DAR System ♦ Check all connections to ensure they are connected
correctly
♦ Make sure only one copy of the software component is
running on the laptop or PC.
♦ Make sure you are using a crossover Ethernet cable
♦ Make sure your Laptop/ PC is set to 10.0.0. # with a
sub –mask of 255.0.0.0
♦ Try to connect using the COM port. Ref to Pg. 48
♦ Turn off the computer, restart, and try again.
If the above suggestions do not provide results, follow the
procedures below to further troubleshoot communications:
Call your Newton Security Inc. Authorized
Distributor
Arrange with your local distributor to substitute a
working T-DAR unit and laptop to determine where the
problem exists.
70
Imaging Problems
To assist in troubleshooting, connect the T-DAR to any NTSC color monitor. Use a
BNC cable and adapters to connect from the monitor to the appropriate Imager Out
terminal on the front panel of the T-DAR unit. This will allow you see what the
Imager is seeing in terms of bright spots, reflections, and other illumination related
problems.
♦ The Image Is
♦ Make sure the BNC cable is connected properly to the
Entirely Blue
Camera Head and to the Control Unit.
♦ Put your hand or a dark piece of paper over the
Camera Head. If the live image does not darken, then
contact your Newton Security Inc. Authorized
Distributor. *
♦ The Image Is Black
♦ Make sure the BNC cable and Power Control cable is
properly connected to the system unit and to the
Camera Head.
♦ Point the Imager at a bright light. If the live image is
entirely black, then contact your Newton Security Inc.
Authorized Distributor.*
♦ Random Pixels
Appear In The
Image
This is commonly caused by electrical noise generated by
motors and controllers connected to or near the T-DAR
Control Unit or Camera Head/Cables. This random image
noise can adversely affect performance and should be
minimized.
Use the following guide to try to isolate the cause of the
noise:
STEP 1: The idea in this step is to determine what a
normal image looks like for comparison. Try to
electrically isolate the T-DAR Series to determine a
known or normal visual pattern on the video
monitor. If it is not possible to electrically isolate
the unit at it’s normal mounting position, take the
T-DAR Series away from the area where
inspections are being performed and connect it to
another Camera Head. Determine the normal
image.
STEP 2: Determine the noise.
Reconnect the T-DAR normally
Block the lens to produce a dark image so that you can
see the electrically induced noise.

Physically move the T-DAR (or Camera Head cables)
away from the machine-repeat Step 2.
Continue with these suggestions until the source of the
noise is discovered.
Note: A common solution is to isolate the ground from
the grounds of heavy machinery.
♦ Increase the overall light by moving the illumination
source closer to the security area, or by increasing the
number of illumination sources.
♦ Replace the Stereo Camera Head if problem persists.
♦ Decrease the illumination source.
♦ Replace the Stereo Camera Head if problem persists.
You may need to:
♦ Clean the lens.
A clean lens ensures that the images acquired by the
Camera Heads are accurate. This is important to the
performance. The lens can be cleaned with a
commercial glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth.
You may need to clean the lens daily in dusty
environments.
♦ Move the Stereo Tracking Head.
The possibility that the wrong head was installed for
that portal always exists. Verify the correct head is
being used, if correct; verify the height and placement
are accurate.
72
All Monitored Events Are Failing
If a working installation suddenly returns failed inspections for all or most of the
inspections, the T-DAR Stereo Camera Head has probably been bumped, or
something has obscured the field of view. A change in lighting conditions is another
possible problem area. Observe the video output results to help determine causes
of failure.
A light source that dims over time or a light source that has

Connection details
Video Out
BNC Connector—System output in video format. Output is in RS170 (NTSC).
Optional PAL output is available on special order. This video output is used
for displaying inspection results of the T-DAR system in real time and
processed video. The Video Out output is not available for RGB or S-Video,
Input 1&2
The portal reset is an opt-isolated input used to reset the alarm event on the
T-DAR unit. Changing the state of this input causes the event video replay to
stop, as well as halting the strobe and audio output of the Annunciator Unit.
Relay 1A -6B
The T-DAR unit is equipped with five (six for T-2010) form-factors A relays
that can be configured to activate on various user selectable conditions. Also,
the normal state of these relays is user definable to allow for greater flexibility
in integrating the system with a variety of access control systems. Four of the
relays are located on the General 1 connector, and the fifth (sixth) relay is
located on the Portal connector.
Line Lock Input
The T-DAR Series uses the Line Lock input to sync with the local power grid.
This input is useful in applications where the video input to the T-DAR system
needs to be synchronized with the lighting, such as fluorescent or other types
of flickering lighting.
Input Common
The main common terminal is used to define the operation of the inputs on
the General 2 connector only. If a dry contact is to be used for portal reset on
the General connector, a small jumper wire will be installed between the +12
VDC terminal and the Main Common terminal. This allows the portal reset
terminals to generate a reference voltage that can be sensed when the
terminal is shorted to ground.
If a wet contact is to be used, the small jumper wire would be installed
between the Main Common terminal and the Ground terminal on the General
connector. Also, a bond wire from the external power supplies ground
terminal will need to be placed in the Ground terminal as well to provide for
ground bonding.
RS232 TX
The T-DAR Series reads data in from external sources or outputs data from
the vision system via a RS422 serial connections found on the Phoenix I/O
79
Connectors. Use the specific section of this user’s guide for application
details on available inputs, outputs and configuration of this port.
Input 3&9
The portal contact is used to monitor the status of the door position switch.
This should be a dedicated switch, and may require the installation of a
double pole/double throw door position switch.
Input 4&10
The Portal Digital Input is used to monitor the state of the electronic lock on
the access controlled portal. Typically, an interposing relay is placed in
parallel with the lock circuit and the contacts on the relay are monitored by the
Portal Digital Input terminal for access granted. This is not necessary if a
dedicated output is available from the access control system. NOTE * The
power from the access control door lock should not be routed through the TDAR inputs.*

Portal Common
The Input Common terminal is used to define the operation of the inputs on
the Portal connector only. If a dry contact is to be used for portal reset on the
Portal connector, a small jumper wire will be installed between the +12 vdc
terminal and the Portal Common terminal. This allows the portal reset
terminals to generate a reference voltage that can be sensed when the
terminal is shorted to ground.
If a wet contact is to be used, the small jumper wire would be installed
between the Portal Common terminal and the Ground terminal on the Portal
connector. Also, a bond wire from the external power supplies ground
terminal will need to be placed in the Ground terminal as well to provide for
ground bonding.
I100 Door Position Encoder
A high resolution door position sensor provides digital-quadrature data to
determine door position, with respect to the overhead stereo cameras.
To install the Door Position Encoder use a straight thru Cat-5 with a RJ-45
connector on the encoder end and flying leads on the other end to the
Phoenix connector on the TDAR Control Unit as shown in the diagram below.
If the Door Position Encoder is placed on Door 2 you must use Portal 2
Phoenix Connector.

T-DAR Dual Digital Inputs
The T-DAR uses dual polarity opto-isolators on all digital inputs. All inputs
can be used as either sinking or sourcing inputs.
Note: as there is a single common for the entire set of inputs, all inputs must
be configured as either sourcing or sinking.
It is not possible to mix the inputs between sourcing and sinking.
The following diagrams illustrate the typical installation for each of the types
of input:

MK200B Stereo Camera Mounting Kit - Installation Guide
Overview
This mounting kit is designed to install a T-DAR stereo head camera safely
and attractively in a standard acoustical tile ceiling.
Figure 1 – Completed assembly
Getting Started
Refer to your T-DAR installation and operation manual for recommended
camera locations with respect to the entry door.
Check for obstructions inside the ceiling such as ductwork, existing electrical
fixtures, and so forth before choosing the final camera location. The camera will
extend about 3.5" (9 cm) above the tile ceiling.
83
Required Hardware
Each mounting kit should contain the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
(1) Lower mounting plate (two round holes)
(1) Upper mounting plate (large rectangular opening)
(2) Caddy® 512 snap-on fixture hangers
(4) Clips and spacers
(8) ¼-20 x 1.5" flat socket cap screws
(4) 4-40 x 3/8” flat socket cap screws
You will also need:
•
•
•
Small handsaw
Drill
Phillips screwdriver, 5/32" (4mm) hex key, and a 1/16” hex key.
Panel Cutting
Mark and cut a hole in the tile to match the layout dimensions. The camera
center is indicated for your convenience when measuring. It is expedient to simply
use the upper plate for this; the cutout is the same.
Initial Assembly
Use the four small 4-40 screws to attach the lower mounting plate to the
camera.
Figure 2 – Lower plate attached to camera
84
With the tile out of the ceiling grid, snap the fixture hangers over the grid "T"
section as shown.
Figure 3 – Snap on fixture hanger detail
Adjust the clips on the upper plate to match the fixture hanger orientation.
Note that the clips can swivel on both the fixture hanger and the upper plate to
match the ceiling grid layout.
Align the upper plate and fixture hangers with the tile in place to get ready for
the next step.
Final Assembly
Start with the upper plate in the ceiling, locked to the fixture clips and hangers.
Then slide the camera into the hole from underneath, and lock the plates
together with the (4) ¼-20 x 1.5" socket cap screws.
In some areas you may be required to wire anchor the camera and fixture
hangers. Check your local building codes.

Known Issues and installation Tips
When using an electric solenoid locks, reverse voltage diodes across the
solenoid terminals must be used to reduce voltage feedback to the system.
When mounting the TDAR on the wall or cabinet, ensure that there is at least
6 inches between each TDAR or any other physical barrier for proper
ventilation. Do not mount one T-DAR Control Unit with its heated exhaust
able to enter the fan intake of another T-DAR Control Unit.
The return signal needs to be instant from the access control system for the
TDAR to alarm properly
Labeling the camera and Ethernet cables correctly on both ends will help
minimize troubleshooting time, due to swapped cables
The area where the camera will be viewing needs to be very well lit. Lighting
conditions can not vary during operation. If lighting conditions change, the TDAR unit must be recalibrated to accept the changed conditions.
Be sure to connect the jumper between portal common and the correct
reference connection (12V or ground)
Failure to supply Line lock input signal if low frequency fluorescents are
utilized in the installation may cause erratic system operation. (See below)
87
LINELOCK INPUT
Required if Low Frequency Fluorescent Lighting is utilized in the installation
The T-DAR™ system requires an input of low voltage AC from a source that also
supplies the lighting for the installation (as shown in the diagram below). This low
voltage (6 to 30VAC) AC signal is required to allow the cameras to be in sync with
the low frequency fluorescent lighting. Failure to provide this signal to the T-DAR
may cause erratic behavior in the system.
Any 6 to 30VAC signal will provide the required synchronization of the T-DAR to the
low frequency fluorescent lighting. A small transformer is provided with the T-DAR
system and can be used to provide this signal; in addition, any other source of low
voltage AC (6 to 30VAC) that is available can also be utilized. Low voltage DC will
not provide the required LineLock signal; use low voltage AC only.
CAUTION!
Do not provide 110/220 VAC to the T-DAR unit LineLock input. Provide only 6 to
30VAC to the LineLock input or permanent damage will occur to the unit.
About Fluorescent Lighting:
Older style fluorescent lights turn on and off the light output at the AC line frequency: 50 or 60 Hz-depending on the area of the
world. Since cameras operate at a similar frequency, this rapid cycling on and off of the lights can cause erratic behavior in the
T-DAR cameras and requires synchronization.
Newer style high frequency fluorescent lights operate at much higher frequencies than do the T-DAR cameras and do not
affect the T-DAR cameras; no LineLock signal is required.
