Connecting a C20 Camera and 13ZD lens to a NET5401T Encoder

Connecting a C20 Camera and 13ZD lens to a NET5401T Encoder

Hi All,

I am trying to connect a Pelco C20-DW-5X analogue camera with a 13ZD6X10P lens to a NET5401T Encoder. We have a coaxial cable between the NET5401T Encoder and the camera/lens (no separate RS422 or Pelco P/D available) so we need to use coaxitron to communicate between the NET5401T and the camera/lens.

My understanding of Coaxitron is that you can only communicate to one device (i.e. only NET5401T to camera, not NET5401T to multiple cameras) so if we install a ERD2000 to control the lens we would loose the ability to communicate with the camera, is this correct? Also the lens has zoom and focus presets which we would like to utilize, is the CX9000 receiver capable of controlling lens presets?

If neither the ERD2000 or CX9000 is suitable, is there any solution that would allow us to control both the C20-DW-5X camera and 13ZD6X10P lens via Coaxitron only and have access to the lens Zoom and Focus presets too?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi, again. You can control Presets through CX9000. In your case CX9000 is the only solution. You will be able to control Lens and Pan/Tilt system if you use it, but Camera Menus problem still exists. I didnt try CX9000 by myself so i dnt know whether you will be able to run Camera menus.

You need Pelco Support Team answer for this.

Re: Connecting a C20 Camera and 13ZD lens to a NET5401T Encoder

According to Pelco Tech Support, we can't both control a C20-DW-5X analogue camera and 13ZD6X10P lens at the same time with coaxitron.

Apparently you can only control the camera, or the lens via the same coaxial cable.

    Hi Raj,

    

    The Coaxitron will be sent to the IRD/ERD to provide voltage outputs to drive any pan/tilt device or attached lens.

    

    It should not pass Coaxitron through to the C20 itself, otherwise when navigating the camera menus, it would also trigger the pan/tilt and lens actions and vice versa.  It is not an integrated camera solution like our Esprit platform for example where the pan/tilt/zoom system knows the camera is in the menu and deactivates all motorised control until the menu is exited.

    

    Therefore, to access the C20 menus if connected to an IRD/ERD, the user would need to press the buttons on the rear of the camera.

    

    Cheers,

    Hi Raj,

    Thanks for the response.

    The C20 camera has an inbuilt menu that is accessible via coaxitron to control things such as contrast, lightness, iris, etc. I am concerned that if I connect the camera and lens to a ERD2000/2200 that I may not be able to access the camera menus.

    Will I be able to both control the 13ZD lens, and access the C20 camera menus at the same time using the ERD2000?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    

    My sincere apologies for the late response, the use of the ER2000/2200 will work fine as coaxitron needs video signals in order to work. This means that there is no “loss of control” over the C20 camera because the C20 camera is NOT controllable (PTZ) camera.

    

    Thanks, Raj
