880 INTRODUCTION
The Z•880 is the most versatile high-performance composite video switcher on
the market today. Its 8x8 matrix can independently select any one of 8 video
sources in up to 8 video zones. Or with as many as three Z880s, 8x24 switching
is possible.
HDTV-compatible wide band switch matrix and video line drivers are placed on
a premium double-sided flooded ground plane circuit board, ensuring that the
highest quality video and cross-talk performance specifications are maintained.
User/Installer-friendly LED readouts, selectable 75 ohm/Hi Z video inputs, and
configurable RS-232 baud rates provide unsurpassed flexibility for almost any
application. Additionally, control interfaces include front panel IR receiver, rear
panel IR input for remote sensors, RS-485, RS-232, and ELAN HD Series serial
control data links.
System Integration
The Z•880 is fully compatible with ELAN’s Z• Series, S• Series and HD Series
multi-source/multi-zone systems and can be integrated with RS-232 controllers
such as a PC or touchscreen via its RS-232 serial communication port. It can
also serve as a stand-alone video switcher for security/surveillance applications.
S• and Z• Series – the Z•880 interfaces easily with the System6 and
Z•630 PreAmp Controller. In a Z• System, the Z•880 can switch up to 6
video sources into 3 zones (with 1 Z•630), 6 zones (when using 2
Z•630s), 9 zones (using 3 Z•630s and 2 Z•880s), or 12 zones (using 4
Z•630s and 2 Z•880s). The Z•880 and System6 or Z•630 enables Z•PADs,
VIA! Touch Panels, or IR receivers in each zone to independently control
both the system’s audio and video sources.
HD Series – in an ELAN HD system, the MCU* and the Z•880 communi-

cate via RS-232 serial communications. A dual 6-pin DIN Serial Interface
cable is provided with the Z•880 and is used to link the RS-232 ports on
the HD’s Automation Control Card to the HD/RS232 serial port on the
Z•880. RS-232 THRU ports on the Z•880 allow you to connect up to 3
Z•880s to the system, giving you a total of 8 video sources that are independently accessible in up to 24 zones. As with Z•Series integration, all
keypads and/or IR receivers in an ELAN HD System will be able to control
all audio and video sources.

SYSTEMS
RS232 Controllers – the Z•880 can easily be integrated with systems
that use PCs or touch screens as the main system controller. Once
again, the RS-232 serial communication ports are used as the data link
between devices. Selectable baud rates of 19,200 and 9,600 make the
Z•880 compatible with most RS232 controllers on the market. A 9-pin
DSUB to 6-pin DIN cable is included to make this connection. Easy-towrite Z•880 RS-232 protocol is provided at the back of this manual, and is
available for download from our web site. (www.elanhomesystems.com).
Stand-a
alone – the Z•880 is the perfect choice for security and surveillance applications. Multiple CCTV cameras (up to eight!) can be independently selected and viewed in 8 different locations.
Sharing Video Sources – Have a home theater or media room and
want distributed video throughout the house? The Z•880 eliminates the
need to dedicate duplicate sources for both applications. Eight (one for
each source) 75 ohm/Hi Z selectable dip switches allow any of the eight
video sources connected to the Z•880 to be ‘shared’ with a surround
sound processor or A/V receiver in the main media room or home
theater - without any signal degradation.

Z 038 Hand Held Remote Control
AUTO/MAN (Automatic/Manual)
System Applications:
Z - Pressing MAN disconnects the Z880 from
Z630 network communications and allows you
to manually access any of the video sources
via the Source 1-8 keys. Typically, this feature
would only be used to access sources 7 and 8
(i.e. front door and back yard cameras), as they
are not part of the Z wholehouse system. Note
that if manually selecting sources 1-6, Z system
keypads and audio will not track. Pressing
AUTO puts the Z880 back on the Z630 network
and will re-sync the video to the audio selected
on the keypad.
HD/RS232 Application: None
Stand-Alone Application: None
MUTE
System Applications:
Z - 'Mutes' the video in a zone only when Z880
is in MANual mode
HD/RS232 - 'Mutes' the video in a zone
Standalone - 'Mutes' the video in a zone
(Note: when a video source is 'muted' from the
hand-held remote, the TV screen will go blank,
but system audio will remain on.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Z038 Remote no longer ships with the
Z880. However, it may be purchased as a separate item.

SOURCE 1-8
System Applications:
Z - Functional in MANual mode only. Use to view
7 & 8. Will also manually select sources 1-6,
but keypads and audio will not track. To re-sync
to Z630 press AUTO.
HD/RS232 Application: None
(Although you can select sources 1-8 with the
remote, this feature is generally not used in an
HD or RS232 controller application. In these
systems, the HD's keypads or the RS232
controller (i.e. a touch screen) controls both
audio and video switching. When selecting
sources manually from the remote, keypads
and audio will not track. Should you change
sources with the Z880's remote, you would
need to re-select the original source to re-sync
the system [pressing AUTO will not do it])
Stand-Alone Application:
Selects video sources 1-8
ZONE 1-8
System Applications:
Z - Lets you visually check what source is being
viewed in each zone; also lets you change
sources in the zone selected (MAN mode only).
HD/RS232 - Same as above.
Stand-Alone - Same as above.

880 SYSTEM OVERVIEW
The Z•880 can switch up to eight composite (base-band)
video signals into eight zones and is fully compatible with
ELAN S•, Z• and HD* Series systems–-as well as for use
as a stand-alone video switcher.
The Z•880 will require runs of RG6 or RG59 coaxial cable
to be pulled to each video zone. Dual runs of coax are
recommended so that multiple signals (i.e. Z•880 compos-
ite and distributed RF [cable/antenna] are available at
each TV location. ELAN’s new line of modular wall plates
provide easy termination of your coax runs back at the
head end–-as well as TV-to-coax connections in each
video zone. Use high-quality video interconnect cables
between the sources and the Z•880 and also between the
TV and the video zone’s wall plate.

880 IR CONFIGURATIONS - Z
As many as three Z880s may be used at one time. ELANTOOLS! software provides discrete IR codes enabling
Z880s to perform 8x8, 8x16, 8x24, or 15x16 matrix switching.
All routing is programmed automatically using the AUTOBUILD feature. See the ELANTOOLS! Setup Software
Reference Manual for details.
AND
SYSTEM6
NOTE 2: An ELAN IRZ may be utilized to enable a single
“IR ALL” port on a System6, Z630, or HD system to control
of as many as THREE Z880s.
PLEASE SEE THE ELAN WEBSITE and download the
Technical Bulletin titled “Z630/Z880 IR Distribution
Methods” dated 1/3/03 for information detailing how to use
an ELAN IRZ to drive multiple IR Emitters from a single “IR
ALL” port.
NOTE 1: When configuring a system using a System6 or
Z630 Preamp Controllers - ELAN strongly recommends
using IR to control the Z880.
880 DIP SWITCH SETTINGS
MODE Dip Swtich Settings
2. MSTR/AUX (Factory Default, MSTR - Down)
In an ELAN HD system or RS232 controller application where
more than 8 video zones are needed, this dip switch determines
whether the Z880 is the MASTER unit (Zones 1-8) or one of the
two possible AUXiliary units (Zones 9-16 and 17-24). If more
than one Z880 is being used, this dip switch must be moved to
the UP position on the 2nd and 3rd Z880s.
3. AUX1/AUX2 (Factory Default, AUX1 - Down)
In a MSTR/AUX application, if the Z880 is the 1st AUXiliary unit
(Zones 9-16) this dip switch will remain in the factory default
DOWN position. If the Z880 is the 2nd AUXiliary unit (Zones
17-24), this dip switch must be moved to the AUX2 (UP) position.
ON
1. HD/RS232 (Factory Default, HD - Down)
This dip switch will remain in the factory default down position
at all times unless the Z880 is being used in a stand-alone
application where the Z880 is being controlled by an RS232
device such as a PC or touchscreen controller. The dip switch
would then be moved to the UP position.
Factory Default:
All dip switches in the
DOWN (ON) position
4. 19.2K/9.6K (Factory Default, 19.2K - Down)
This dip switch determines the baud rate (the rate at which
RS232 devices communicate with the Z880). The factory
default setting of 19.2K is the same rate as that of
serial port on the HDC2040 Automation Control Card.
When interfacing with other RS232 devices, confirm that
unit's baud rate and move the dip switch to the 9.6K setting
if necessary.

When the video output of a source is sent to
multiple Z880s or shared with another device
such as an A/V receiver or Surround Sound
Processor, these dip switches (one for each
source) must be moved to the UP position.
Failure to set these dip switches correctly
will result in poor picture quality.
