If the EyeMax device has never been connected to this Vmax device before, you will need to do an initial software set up to ensure that the devices will communicate with each other.

  1. Make sure that all the cable connections have been made:
    • Attach the EyeMax to the Vmax.
    • Plug the power supply into the EyeMax, confirm that the yellow power light is lit.
    • Connect the EyeMax to the Vmax with the USB cable
    • Connect the power jumper cable from the EyeMax to the Vmax.
  2. Turn on the Vmax device, and confirm that the green light on the side of the EyeMax is lit - that confirms the USB connection between the devices.
  3. If the Series 5 software is running, close it.
  4. Select the Windows Start button.
  5. Select Computer (or My Computer).
  6. Select the C: drive.
  7. Select the 5100 folder.
  8. Open the Quick Glance folder - NOT the Quick Glance 5.2 folder.
  9. Run the Quick Glance 5.1.exe utility (you might need to double-click on it).
  10. The Quick Glance program should open by asking you to choose a language.  The default should be English - select OK.
  11. If the EyeMax is recognized, you will be asked to provide the EyeMax password.  This number is printed on the back plate of the EyeMax, and is usually 6 digits.  Type in the 6 digit password in the box.
  12. The Quick Glance software should now be running - it will show you a window with the camera image.  You can press Exit at this time.
  13. If the device is a Vmax (serial number starting with VM), then you can now start the Series 5 software and the Eye Tracking selection method should be operational.  If the device is a Dual Core Vmax (VMD Serial Number), your best bet is to reboot the device, then proceed to the Series 5 software.  

The EyeMax should now be operational with the Series 5 software, and you can proceed with the set up and calibration.
