If relays are connected to the Sensor-Relay card, then up to 4 Relay objects can be created under the Video Capture Device parent object.

All the Relay objects corresponding to relays connected to one Sensor-Relay card are to be created in the Hardware object tree under the Video Capture Device object corresponding to the video capture card where the Sensor-Relay card is installed.

At least one Camera object is to be created under the same Video Capture device object for relay to work.

If the Sensor-Relay card is installed on FS-5, FS-6 or FS-16 video capture card, then the Relay objects are to be created under any Video Capture Device object within the hardware card.

If the Sensor-Relay card is installed on SC3B0N16 (WS216) video capture card, then the Relay objects are to be created under the Video Capture Device object with 04 value of the PCI-channel.

If the Sensor-Relay card is installed on FS-8 video capture card, then the Relay objects are to be created under the Video Capture Device object with 07 value of the PCI-channel.

Relay objects can be relocated in the object tree. To change the parent  Video Capture Device object of the Relay objects, change the value of the Video Capture Device object on the settings panel of the Relay object. The value of this parameter is to correspond to the number of the Video Capture Device object (in the object tree) under which the Relay object is to be located. If the value of the Video Capture Device parameter is changed on the settings panel of the Relay object, then the object is moved to the branch of child objects of the corresponding Video Capture Device object.

Note

All Relay objects related to one Sensor-Relay card are to be located in child branches under the same Video Capture Device object for proper operation of INTELLECT™. The Relay objects are not to be located under different Video Capture Device objects even if these objects represent the same video capture card with the adjustable Sensor-Relay card.

The next figure shows an example of locating the Relay objects in the object tree when two FS-6 (or FS-16) video capture cards with 4 relays connected to the first 4/4 (or 16/4) Sensor-Relay card and 2 relays connected to the second one are used. 

Configuring the Relay objects one is to specify the channel numbers of sensor connection to the Sensor-Relay card according to the numbers of the DO pins on the card.

To change the channel numeration, use the Channel Number list on the settings panel of the Relay object.

The 4/4 and 16/4 Sensor-Relay cards allow connecting up to 4 relay channels according to the license key file.

The figure below shows an example of the channel numeration configuration of 4 relays connected to one 4/4 Sensor-Relay card installed on FS-6 (or FS-16) video capture card (4 ADCs for 4 Video Capture Device objects).

Channels of the second 16/4 Sensor-Relay card are numbered 1-4 according to input connectors.

Example of the channel numeration configuration of relays connected on the second (next) 16/4 Sensor-Relay card installed on FS-6 (or FS-16) video capture card (4 ADCs for 4 Video Capture Device objects):
