The Vicon Connectivity node is displayed under the Local Vicon System node when Vicon Tracker is connected to a Vicon system with at least one MX Giganet unit. The Vicon Connectivity node lists each MX Giganet unit connected to your Vicon system. For each MX Giganet, the node name includes the device position number, any display name specified in the Identification property, and the device type listed in parentheses, e.g, #1 Name (MX Giganet).

To configure MX Giganet units for analog data acquisition:

  1. On the System tab, select the node whose properties you want to configure:
    • Vicon Connectivity node for all MX Giganet units.
    • A sub node for a specific MX Giganet unit — For Vicon MX systems, the MX Giganet sub-nodes in the System list correspond to the IDs assigned by Tracker. If an MX Giganet unit has automatically been designated as the synchronization master for the Vicon system, its node name is displayed in bold.
      The colored icon beside an MX Giganet node identifies its status:
      • Green play button: Component OK (active or connected). If an analog device is connected, this status does not reflect the analog device's status.
      • Yellow pause button: Component is not fully set up or device has been disabled in the Status section of Properties.
      • Red stop button: Component down (unavailable or disconnected).
  2. In the Properties section, view or change settings for the required properties.
    When you first set up your Vicon system, you configure at least the Name property and, if you are using synchronization functionality, the Sync Out properties. In subsequent sessions, you may want to configure additional properties to suit the needs of your motion capture application.
  3. In the configuration management area at the top of the System tab, click the save button  to save your system configuration settings to a .system file.
