VisTrak SCX Installation instructions

VisTrak SCX

The VisTrak SCX consists of 3 overhead mounted cameras in a IR LED and Xenon flash panel

The center camera is a VisTrak Eagle and the 2 outer cameras are used to measure ball spin and ball vertical Launch Angle

VisTrak Eagle

To get started, first follow all the VisTrak Eagle installation instructions

The VisTrak Eagle is the center camera on the unit

! Please Note !

It is strongly recommended to first get the system to run in VisTrak Eagle mode before attaching the outer cameras.

i.e. you are able to play a complete round just in this mode first.

VisTrak SCX spin cameras

The two outer SCX cameras measure ball vertical launch angle and ball spin

All cameras in the SCX are ceiling mounted

SCX wiring

Run the USB3 and Cat cables as shown in the above diagram

SCX Control Panel settings

Please ensure that you are using the latest Control Panel update

Click above button to see the latest CP updates

Lens focusing and aiming

It's important that the camera lenses are in focus.

To focus, place a ball on the center line of the enclosure mounted on a box (r any othe object) and point the camera at the ball.

Switch to "Video Steam Mode" in the CP's camera window so that you see the captured images.

Rotate the outer dial on the lens in or out until you see that the ball is in focus.

SCX Vertical Launch Angle Detection

The SCX measures ball vertical launch angle by comparing the ball image size of the ball in flight

with the ball image size of the ball at floor level.

Ball Markings

In order to measure ball spin, the SCX system requires that the balls have markings on them.

10 marked spin dot and marked balls are supplied with every unit.

You can use either the supplied spin dot balls or use your own balls that feature a manufacturers logo.

The advantage of using marked spin dot balls

The main advantage of using spin dot balls is that you don't have to bend down and adjust the ball

so that the ball logo or the applied metallic dot is facing in a certain direction.

BTW from what I gather, Trackman and Mevo systems do require you bend down and adjust the ball so that their metal dot

- that you are required to apply to the ball - is facing upwards or in the direction of play.

Another advantage is that you can visible see and thus verify the rate of rotation during the video swing playback with visible ball markings.

In contrast, you won't see this if the ball has no markings so you'd have to just believe that the measured ball spin rate is correct.
