Adjusting the DIP switch

PixController LE 10-Position DIP Switch

The 10-Position DIP switch on the PixController LE board is used to setup how the board controls the attached cameras, functions in day only, night only, 24 hour mode, and many more features. Listed below are instructions on how to setup the DIP switch feature on the LE board.

For a complete list of DIP switch setting Click here.

Adjusting the PIR Sensitivity POT

To adjust the PIR detection range on your PixController LE board simply turn the single turn POT shown to the left to your desired range. The default setting is in the middle, as shown. The two "dots" on the Philips head screw show the actual location.

The default setting is desirable for almost all weather conditions. In very hot summer months, or setups over fields with no shading cover you should reduce the PIR sensitivity.

Note: Turning the sensitivity to the minimum setting will turn the PIR detection off.

Adjusting the Day/Night Cal. POT

When adjusting the Day/Night Sensor POT you must first set the DIP switches 3 & 4 "Up" when the board is powered down, then turn the board on. The "Red Control LED" will light up when the detection level detects darkness. You may want to adjust this in the darkest setting you want to run your system at when adjusting this POT. When finished you will need to return DIP switches 3 & 4 back to their original setting.

Auto Walk-Test mode on power up
When turning power on to your Universal board both the red and green LED will light up. They will both stay on for 30 seconds. This time will allow the PIR circuit to warm up. After this time expires the green LED will turn off and the red LED will blink 5 times letting you know that the board is entering a 1 minute automatic walk-test phase. At this point you can move around the camera setup and check out the PIR area. Both the green and red LEDs will light when motion is detected. After the 1 minute automatic walk-test phase expires the red LED will blink 5 times letting you know the camera system will now become active.
