PixController Universal LANC-U User Switch Settings
Copyright ©, PixController, Inc., all rights reserved
The User Control Switch (SW1) will let you customize how the LANC Camcorder Control Board
will trigger the Camcorder. Here you can adjust the time delay between pictures, operating only
at day, night, or 24 hours, setting up a walk-test mode for testing PIR range/area, set how long
the camcorder will record, and turning the control board LED’s on or off.
Note: 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. If you see a blinking red LED it means no LANC signal
is found, thus no camcorder is connected. 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 LED’s 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.

On boot up of the Universal board this setting will put the unit into a PIR Walk-Test mode. Here
you can check out the PIR detection area without having the unit take photos. When booting the
Universal board into this mode the RED Control LED and Green PIR LED will stay on for about
30 seconds. This is when the PIR is warming up. After this period of time has expired you are
free to walk and test the PIR area.
Note: To put the PixController back into “Photo Taking Mode” change the switch settings of
switch 4 and 5 to one of the three options above under the Day/Night Operation Setting, and
power the PixController unit Off and On from the external power switch.

When changing switch setting you must re-boot your PixController board.

properly. Symptoms of this are a dim red LED or blinking green LED, or
