RearMaster Mirror / Reversing Camera for Aim MX Displays and Data Loggers
The Aim loggers built to manage rear cameras are provided with a female metallic 5 pins Binder connector, placed on the device bottom and labelled as “VIDEO IN” (following image).
The Video In connector allows the connection of two different analog cameras, that may be activated as here down described.
Please Note: some analog cameras require a 3.3V power. Please, verify before you connect yours to the +Vb output (12V), supplied by the pin3 of the Binder connector .
It has, as most of the analog cameras, a connection through standard RCA connectors (following right image), for which we have developed the patch cables:
Single RearMaster camera (cable length: 5m) ended with:
Double RearMaster camera (cable length: 6m) ended with
* The two DC Power and Video RCA cables couples are respectively 4m and 6m long, in order to allow both front camera and rear camera connection
Aim offers the same camera with a more reliable Binder connection (Part no. XB1ZCAMHD00; Binder conector pinouts are specified below):
The patch cables available are:Single Aim Mirror Camera (6m length) ended with
Double Aim Mirror Camera: ended with:
Once the connection has been executed, it is necessary to configure the device, defining a specific event that causes the camera image displaying. For example, if you wish to turn ON the camera when you insert the Reverse Gear, these are the steps to follow:
Through analog sensor, plugging it into one of the device analog channels, which must be configured as expressed on the right (Channels tab). The “Use reverse gear” box must be ticked.
Through ECU, selecting the compatible protocol with your vehicle ECU from the ECU Stream tab.
Open the Trigger Commands tab and click “Add New Command”: select “First Camera Input Page” as a command to activate when the Gear is equal to “R”.
The camera parameters setting must be executed from the device menu directly, as explained below:
If no key is pressed, after 5 seconds the menu disappears, showing the camera image in live streaming, so that it can be better positioned.
