ACC-Terminal Sony Digital Camera

Introduction Specs Settings Connecting Cameras Motion Sensor Building Systems


The Sony ACC Terminal PixController LE is a complete electronic kit to construct a Wildlife Video Surveillance Camera System, or Remote Security System. It uses an integrated Passive Infrared (PIR) detector which detects body heat and motion to trigger any ACC Terminal compatible Sony Digital Camera.  The board will send a command to the attached camcorder to power the digital camera on, shutter a photo, then power the camera off. The advantage of this type of unit is that you simply connect your camera to the board with the the supplied ACC Terminal cable. No camera modifications are needed. Note: This will only work on Sony digital cameras with an ACC Terminal port. The User Switch Settings let you adjust the delay between photos, day/night/24hr recording, and setup the Walk-Test PIR mode. 

2.5mm Cable Information
When using the 2.5mm cable with the PixController LE board you will need to cut off one of the male ends from the cable, strip back the black insulation, and solder the LANC signal from the cable into the LANC connection on the PixController LE boards camera port, You will also have to solder the LANC Ground signal from the cable into the Ground connection on the PixController LE boards camera port.

Powering up your ACC PixController LE Board
When applying power to your ACC Terminal configured Universal board you must follow these steps:

  1. Start with both the camera off and the LE board off.
  2. Plug the 2.5mm cable in between the camcorders ACC Terminal port and the LE boards camera port.
  3. Power on the camera.
  4. Power on the Universal board.

After these steps have been followed correctly you should see the camera power down after about 5 seconds of applying power to the Universal board. If you get a series of 5 blinks on the red LED this means the Universal board cannot "see" the camera. If you see a blinking green LED this means you powered up/down the ACC
Terminal board too quickly. Please power down the camera and LE board, and unplug the 2.5mm cable, wait for 30-60 seconds, then follow steps 1-4.

What is an ACC Port? 
The ACC Terminal port was developed by Sony as a remote control protocol for the higher end models of their digital cameras. ACC Terminal connectors are usually 2.5mm mini plugs - about the size of a Walkman headphone.
