You can include supported third-party devices to trigger your Vicon Vantage system to start capture, stop capture, or both. You can also have the Vicon Lock unit trigger the external device. You must obtain your own cable to plug into the Remote Start or Stop connectors on the rear of the Lock unit and into your remote triggering device (further details: Understand remote functionality).
In your Vicon application software, you can configure a buffer to capture for a specified amount of time before the start is triggered (for details, see your software documentation). The data from that buffer is added to your raw data (X2D) file. You can also configure the software to stop capture after a specified duration, rather than using a remote stop trigger.
To include remote triggering devices in a Vantage system:
- For a device to remotely trigger capture to start, plug your device cable into the Remote Control Input Start connector on the rear of a Vicon Lock unit. (The following illustrations show a Lock+ unit.)
- For a device to remotely trigger capture to stop, plug your device cable into the Remote Control Input Stop input connector on the rear of a Vicon Lock unit.
- Plug the other end of your device cable into your remote triggering device.
