Introduction Specs Settings Connecting Cameras Motion Sensor Building Systems



Camera Port
The Camera Port on the PixController LE board is a solder port, which means you will need to solder wires from the camera or cable connecting to the camera into this port. The Camera Port is J1 and J2 on the PixController LE board as shown below.



Ports J2 and J1 shown above.

Port Overview
The camera port is where you will connect your camera. Each camera connects to the camera port in a different way. The camera port provides connections for hardwired cameras, and plug-n-play cameras such as the Sony LANC camcorders, and Sony ACC-Terminal.

For LANC and ACC-Terminal you will need to solder in one end of your 2.5mm cable into the LANC and Ground connections. More information on this is listed below in the camera chart.

For hardwired cameras you will wire the shutter, refresh, or power on/off contacts here. Information is listed below for each camera setup and wiring locations in the camera chart.

The external light is also wired into the Camera Port. Not every camera mode supports the external light. Information on external light wiring is listed below in the camera chart.


Camera Chart
Below is the "Camera Chart". To setup the camera mode please select the camera you plan to attach with the DIP switch setting on your PixController LE board. For more information on the the DIP switch click here. The "Camera Chart" gives you wiring information for both the PixController LE board and the camera.
