|Thema: Event settings|
The Event Settings dialog contains all events that can trigger a camera action. Except for the event counter, you can combine the event sensors freely.
|Note:||Click on the More button to display all options of the dialog.|
|Passive Infrared Detector (PI)||
The passive infrared detector registers warm moving objects within the sensor area. The sensor reaches about 10 meters (34 ft.) and has a field of view of ± 15°.
Use the trigger level to define when an event is triggered.
Activate the level meter in the Text and Display Settings dialog and select PIR Detector as source. The level meter helps you find the best possible trigger level for your application.
|Video Motion Window (VM)||
The video motion sensor reacts to movements in certain image areas, called "video motion windows". You can define one or more independent video motion windows for each image sensor (camera lens).
A video motion window defined for the left image sensor will still be active, even if you only see the image from the right lens of the camera. This means that events detected by the (invisible) image sensor are recognized as well.
Every line in the definition box (e.g.
Format of one line:
Parameters of one configuration line:
The camera's integrated microphone reacts to noises in the camera's perimeter.
When the trigger level is exceeded, an event is triggered, provided that the noise exceeds the minimum period of time defined.
Activate the level meter in the Text and Display Settings dialog and select Microphone as source. The level meter helps you find the best possible trigger level for your application.
|Signal Input (SI):||
The camera's signal input can trigger an event. For example, you can connect the door bell with the signal input so that an event is triggered when the bell is rung.
|Periodic Event (PE):||
The periodic event is a simple variant of a time-controlled event. Use this event when you intend to trigger events at an interval of less than one minute.
|Time Task (TT)||
Time tasks are controlled by tasks that you can create and manage in the Time Tasks dialog.
Activate this option in order to execute time tasks.
|User Click (UC)||
This will allow triggering events manually by clicking on the UC Event soft button.
Activate this option if the camera should react to these events.
Press one or both of the keys on the camera's front labeled R and L to trigger events manually.
Define which camera key or which key combination will trigger an event.
|IR Remote Control (IR)||
The camera can trigger an event when it recognizes any signal from an IR remote control.
Activate this option to trigger an event for any code received.
|IP Receive (RC)||
The camera can trigger an event when it receives an IP notification via TCP/IP:
|COM In (CI)||
The camera can trigger an event when it receives a message via the serial interface (RS232).
The integrated temperature sensor can trigger an event when the actual temperature is higher or lower than the value entered here:
|Random Event (RD)||
The camera can trigger an event at a random point in time.
Enter the number of random events per hour. This value represents the average number of events to be triggered per hour for a longer period.
|Event Counter (EC)||
The event counter prevents events from being triggered immediately. It only triggers an event when a certain number of events within a defined period of time has been exceeded/reached or not reached, respectively.
Each event image will increase the event counter by one, even if multiple event sensors are active at the time.
The event counter can be used, for example, for monitoring a conveyor belt in a production scenario. When fewer events occur than expected during the defined period of time, a malfunction is recognized and the camera triggers an alarm.
Click on the Set button to activate your settings and to save them until the camera is rebooted.
Click on the Close button to close the dialog. While closing the dialog, the system checks the entire configuration for changes. If changes are detected, you will be asked if you would like to store the entire configuration permanently.
