2 Introduction
2.1 Description
The Peco is a unit with double functionality, is able to analyze the images and to provide client
traffic without need of installing special cameras or physical barriers. It has real-time video
recording, with data and image transmission to one or more users.
As a people counter, the Peco unit collects the flow data, it differentiates inputs and outputs and
different moves of several people simultaneously. The data can be consulted graphically (daily or
weekly), and exported to a text format for later analysis.
As a digital recorder unit, the Peco transmits live or recorded video simultaneously to several
users without blocking the recording. It can record by time-lapse, event or motion detection and
with independent recording rates for each camera. The recording and transmission configuration
are similar to the VX units, for further information please consult the VX4/VX8/VX16 user manual.
2.2 Functionality
Counting data
The unit has up to 8 configurable counters at 25 / 12 ips. With a high reliability, being able to
differentiate between the traffic direction (in/out), and the passage of several people
simultaneously.
The PeCo-Graph software is supplied for the functional and commercial use of the counting data.
It allows for manual or programmed data downloads from different units simultaneously, their
analysis and export.
Counting data graphic display
You can request at any time the in/out data included by one or several counters in a fixed date,
and watch them graphically (daily or weekly) from the local installation or remotely through the
unit web interface.
User Manual - 7
Operation from any PC
It is also compatible with the digital video surveillance and management software Supervisor VS
and with other visualisation devices of the range.
Local operation
The unit is ready for its use in a local scenario. It only needs to be connected to the mouse (USB
or PS2) and to a VGA monitor. As an option, it also can be connected to a keyboard and to two
CCTV monitors. The local operation, allows the unit to visualize live and recording video with the
additional possibility to display them simultaneously, searching of recording video by VMD, digital
inputs/outputs status, unit configuration, software upgrades, image export, people counter
configuration, logs and data counting erasing.
Remote operation
The unit can transmit live or recorded video images to one or several operator workstations
simultaneously connected to the same network (LAN, WAN or Internet) using the TCP/IP protocol
over Ethernet. The remote operation allows as well, the live and recording video visualisation. It
shows the digital input/output status, the unit configuration, software upgrades, image export,
people counter configuration and data counting erasing.
Images recording
The unit can record simultaneously from all the cameras (not-synchronized cameras PAL/NTSC
format). Recording conditions and frequency (ips), may be defined individually for each camera
depending on calendars or time lapse, and/or the activation of external events and video motion
detectors.
The time shifts allow the specification of different recording frequencies based on the opening
hours for public places or shops. Devices connected to the digital input alarms of the unit, as
presence detectors, door contactors, etc., generate the external events.
The Peco units have 200 ips to share between the cameras. They have four quality image levels,
both live and recording video.
The images obtained from each camera are stored in the hard disk as independent video
sequences. The unit has an automatic erasing tool to eliminate sequences no longer valid (out of
the date defined by the user). Factory setting for this feature is 365 days.
Image transmission
The image compression system allows for the transmission of up to 25 images per second,
depending on the available communications bandwidth.
The unit allows simultaneous connection of several remote users –either by using Internet
Explorer or/and the Supervisor VS reception and management software - to visualize, record
and/or play back video sequences without affecting the recording or the local operation.
Alarm sending and export
The alarms that are generated both from external events, collected across the digital inputs, and
internal events from the detection movement programming, there can be sent to one or two
Supervisors VS or via e-mail.
The recording video images can be exported to external devices (CD, DVD, USB memories, etc),
both from the local and remote operation.
User Manual - 8
Security
There are three user profiles with different kind of permissions to adjust them to each type of
operation. It’s available an IP filter that provides access to the unit, only allowing the authorized
ones.
The unit indicates automatically when the hard disk runs out of free space; in this case the unit
works normally and when more space is needed the oldest sequences are deleted.
Configuration
The (remote/local) configuration interface shows and allows for the edition of the system general
data, timetables, cameras and people counter configuration, recording schedules, automatic
activation of the relay outputs, etc.

3 Installation and set up
3.1 Camera installation for people counters
The count is based on the digital analysis of the images from zenith cameras without devices,
barriers or special installations.
The camera must be installed offering zenith vision over the passage area, avoiding the grouping
areas. A zenith vision is the one that comes from the ceiling, so the optical camera axis is
perpendicular to the ceiling.
It advisable to use varifocal cameras, there can be B&W or colour, is important that they have
good contrast and high clarity. Is not advisable the use of autofocus and autoiris.
The counter identifies a person through its shoulder broad seen from a zenith camera. The
camera must be installed in a suitable height over the counting line, to avoid distortions.
It is recommended that the height should be equal to the passage area width. When the camera
is placed at low height it creates big differences between different stature people.
Fig. 1 – Peco camera installation
The Peco unit can also count through the connection of an input device that generates pulses.
The device is connected to a digital input, with this option the video reception is disconnected and
the counts are generated from external devices.

3.2 Different Peco models
You can find out what particular Peco model you are using by reading the label on the front or the
bottom of the unit. The available models are identified by the product code:
VX4-C4-HDD [CD]
VX8-C8-HDD [CD]
VX16-C8-HDD [CD]
Being HDD the hard disk size and CD the CD’s option.
3.3 Unit package contents
Open the box and check that the following items are included in it:

Required model.

USB Mouse

Power cable.

RJ45 cable for TCP/IP communication.

Peco User Manual (this document)

CD that contains the VSFinder application, necessary to configure the network
information of any Peco unit from the LAN.
3.4 Unit installation
To install the unit follow the enclosed instructions. It is recommended to have on hand the
diagrams of the cover pages.
1. Unpack the box contents and put the unit onto its final installation location. Make sure that the
previous items are included. Tip: write down the unit serial number, it will be useful to identify it
when using the configuration software VSFinder.
2. Connect the TCP/IP communications cable provided with the unit in the RJ45 socket Ethernet
network adapter 10/100/1000 Base T 11.
3. Connect the alarm input/output cables to the screw terminal female connectors provided with
the equipment, and these to the unit 4/5. Check the pin layout included in the diagrams back
page.
The alarm inputs do not have galvanic isolation, so the activation / deactivation of the digital
signals require voltage-free contacts, thus allowing the isolation of the sensor and the unit.
The power consume when the digital input is activated through a contactor potential-free or an
output open collector sensor is 0.5 mA
The relay outputs, that provide either normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) contacts,
can be used to verify when the hard disk is full or to distinguish between “working hours” or
“non working hours”. Their electrical features are:
o
Maximum switching voltage: 24V AC/DC
o
Maximum switching current: 1 A
User Manual - 11
4. Connect the cameras to the BNC connectors of the unit 3 using an appropriate 75 Ohms coax
cable (not supplied with the unit).
The unit is provided with video inputs for PAL cameras, not necessarily synchronized. Each
camera has to be connected to the unit through a 75 Ohms coax cable with a male BNC
connector at the unit end. Each connection or splice produces a slight change in the
impedance, so all the cable used must be one-piece cable, without splices or derivations.
5. In case of domes you will have to connect the control cable to the unit serial port. In some
cases you will need to use a RS-485 / 422 to RS-232 protocol converter. Refer to the technical
notes.
6. The unit has two analogue video output 6, which provides video-cycles (3 seconds per
camera), showing images of the cameras with signal connected to the unit. If you are going to
connect a monitor to the output, do it now. The cable must have the same characteristics as
the one used for the video inputs. The VX4-C4 unit doesn’t have video outputs.
7. The power connector for the external supply is located in the unit’s rear.
8. The unit starts working automatically once it is plugged or when power is recovered after a
supply loss. Do not forget to unplug the unit off any time you need to connect or disconnect
any of the external items. The unit has an informative led on its front side showing the state of
the machine (on / off).
9. ATTENTION: the unit is configured initially to record 2 IPS from all the cameras, please
remember to disable the recording of the cameras that you are not going to use, to avoid the
generation of video loss alarms.

User Manual - 13
3.6 Remote start of the unit from the local network (LAN)
Although the user can be connected to the unit via TCP/IP, whether by using the local network or
remotely through Internet, THE INITIAL UNIT CONFIGURATION MUST BE ALWAYS
PERFORMED BY USING THE SAME LOCAL NETWORK, so it will be necessarily to connect the
unit and the computer to the same sub network.
Once the physical connections are established, start the VSFinder program contained in the
installation CD. This program identifies all the units connected to the network. If several units
appear in the list of units found, you can identify the one you are about to configure through its
serial number, which can be found in a label stuck to the unit and is also in the first column
“id/model”. Select it by clicking the corresponding line.
Fig. 3 – VSFinder
Then you will see a screen to enter the IP address, the gateway address and the network mask,
values that should be provided by the network administrator. To modify the original connection
data is necessary to enter the Administrator user password of the Peco unit. In the last column
are show like information the http and video ports.
From that moment on, you will be able to access de unit through its IP address, whether local or
remotely (through Internet). This configuration with the VSFinder only has to be done once.
To access the unit through Internet you must configure the NAT table of the router to define a
correspondence between the router global IP and the unit local IP. For more information about
this subject please check the technical note about Internet connection.
User Manual - 14
3.7 Connection process
If the unit is on the same local network as you are, you will need to type in your Internet Explorer
the local IP address of the Peco unit.
If on the other hand you want to connect to the unit trough the Internet (external connection) you
will need to type the public IP of the unit (if this is an fixed IP address) or connect to
identity.dnsvideo.net (if the unit has a dynamic IP address). The identity number, which find on a
sticker at the bottom of the unit, is made up of the letters SN plus the internal serial number of the
Peco unit. As an example, if we have a VX unit with identity SN03060963151234 the connection
address will be SN03060963151234.dnsvideo.net.
To obtain more information about how the dynamic IP works please check the technical note
“Internet Connection” available in www.visual-tools.com.
Note:
If you need to know the identity of a unit and do not have it at hand you can find it out running the
VSFinder application from a PC within the same local network as the VX and that will give you the internal
serial number of the unit. To obtain the identity you just need to add the letters SN in from of the internal
S/N of the unit.
Enter here the IP address of the DNS name
of the unit
