1.01 Introduction
1.03 Detection Ranges
IRIS216 and IRIS316 Thermal Imaging PTZ cameras convert
heat emitted and reflected from objects into a detailed visual
image. This means they can be used to provide visibility in
absolute zero light conditions.
Based on NATO criteria for Human and Typical Vessel targets.
Actual range may vary depending on camera set up,
environmental conditions, user experience and type of monitor
or display used.
They provide an incredibly powerful method to help navigate at
night and in low light or poor visibility conditions. Any changes in
temperature greater then 50mK are detected, meaning it's
possible to observe reflections of objects, footprints after a
person has left the area or even the texture of snow and ice.
Model
A powerful sensor known as a Micro-bolometer picks up the long
range infra red waveforms omitted and reflected by all objects
and converts them into electrical signals which are used to build
up a visual screen. The amount of pixels on the sensor and their
proximity to each other determine the sensitivity of the unit and
the resolution of the picture. The IRIS216 has a 384x288
resolution and the IRIS316 has a 640x480 resolution. The
IRIS216 is referred to as a QVGA resolution, although in fact it
has 44% more pixels than a standard QGVA image. The
IRIS316 is referred to as a VGA camera. Both cameras have a
pixel pitch of 17µm.
Iris thermal imaging cameras are perfect additions to both
leisure marine and commercial marine navigational and
situational awareness set-ups. They are also used widely by the
military and emergency services. Iris Thermal cameras are
feature rich, high quality situational awareness and night vision
tools. Because the wavelengths used are twenty times longer
than the wavelengths in the visible part of the spectrum, the
radiation undergoes less scattering by particles in the
atmosphere and as a result, visibility through smoke, mist and
fog can also be improved.

3.01 Examples of Typical Systems
A basic configuration will consist of a single camera, a camera
controller and a viewing medium (either a dedicated video
monitor or a multi-functional display (MFD)). The video feed
from the camera is routed directly into the MFD, and the control
data from the joystick is sent directly to the camera.

On-Board Camera Controller

Simple Camera to Monitor (Chart-Plotter)
Set Up
Systems become more complicated where there are multiple
cameras, monitors and/or controllers and where more complex
video and data transmission methods are employed such as
wireless or Internet Protocol (IP) conversions. The diagrams
below detail a number of different connection configurations.
In theory it is possible to have up to 255 controllable devices in a
system (cameras or controllers) and unlimited fixed cameras,
but this is obviously dependent on the video switching
equipment installed, the camera control data management and/
or the vessels on board LAN - and of coarse the size of the
vessel!
The key issue when installing multiple controllable cameras is
that they have individual addresses (see below). A popular
configuration would be something along the lines of 2 x
controllable cameras, 4 x fixed (static) cameras and 2 x
controllers. This would mean that the number of video inputs
required would exceed the amount of inputs offered by most
chart plotters and so a video switcher (such as the IRIS606 c
Camera switcher) would be required. Video from each camera is
routed into the video switcher and the output from the switcher is
then routed into a single input of the chart plotter. Switching is
controlled by a dedicated waterproof keypad connected to the
switcher. The data wires from each of the controllable cameras,
along with the data wires from the two controllers would then
need to be routed into a Serial Data Distributor (also known as
an Expander), such as the IRIS EXP0204. This simplifies
installation and prevents ʻcross-talkʼ and ʻreflectionsʼ and the
data line that can result in poor camera control and ʻover-runsʼ.

switchers and data expanders can be found at www.boatcameras.com

4.01 Camera Control Data
4.04 Installation Considerations
IRIS216/316 cameras are controlled via an RS485 serial data
connection, using a variant of the Pelco-D CCTV camera control
protocol. The Pelco-D protocol was designed to provide
accurate controls for a wide range of standard CCTV features,
such as pan, tilt, user preset features etc, but do not include
features specific to thermal imaging cameras and other
extended features supported by Iris cameras. Because of this,
Iris have mapped their product specific features to certain user
preset commands and to other modified Pelco-D commands.
This means that Iris thermal PTZ cameras can be controlled
either by a dedicated Iris joystick controller such as the IRIS516
or IRIS507, as well as other control devices, such as compatible
chart-plotters, multi-functional displays and third party joysticks.
For further information on compatible third party control
interfacing please contact Iris Innovations. For certain third party
interfacing, additional serial protocol convertors may be required
where NMEA0183 or NMEA2000 connections are used.
It's important to fully consider the intended position of the
camera and the desired fields of view prior to installation, in
terms of how you are going to get cables to the position, will the
camera be able to see the appropriate areas, will the camera
interfere with any other fixture such as a doorway or walkway
once it's fixed in place, or are there any obstructions behind the
surface onto which the camera is to be installed. It's strongly
recommended that if possible the camera should be temporarily
powered up prior to final installation and offered into position so
that these factors can be considered and any possible issue can
be addressed before holes are drilled and difficult, time
consuming and costly cable runs are attempted. Check third
party hardware to ensure it doesn't effect the operation of the
camera and vice versa.
4.02 Cabling Requirements
The camera has a 3 meter tail into which a 50cm breakout cable
is connected. The breakout tail has the following connections:
Video (female 75Ω BNC connector), Data (2 x bare wires:
RS485+ (RED wire) and RS485- (Black wire)) and Power
(2.5mm DC Barrel Jack connector). Individual video, data and
power cables can be run back to the control position and power
distribution position or a combination cable (such as IRISCOMBPTZ-xx) can be used. Alternatively, an Active Video Balun
set can be used to allow a single CAT5 cable to be run. Please
note however that although Baluns facilitate the use of CAT5
cables, these should on no account be routed through ethernet
routing and switching hardware as this will cause permanent
damage. If Baluns are used, ensure the CAT5 cables are
managed completely separately from your IP network. Contact
Iris Innovations for further details.
Video cables need to be coaxial with an impedance of 75Ω such
as RG59, URM70 or similar.
Power cables need to be 2 core DC cable rated at 5A (maximum
voltage 36VDC)
Data Cables need to be twisted pair Belden style data cables
(0.5mm) or equivalent.
4.03 Setting Camera Address
4.05 Protocol Information
Each camera must have itʼs own unique address so that only
control data intended for that camera is received and processed
by the camera. If multiple cameras had the same address, they
would all move together when pan and tilt commands are
transmitted.
To set the camera address, remove the DIP switch cover plate
on the base of the camera with a small cross-head screw driver,
taking care not to loose the 4 screws or the rubber ʻOʼ seal, and
set the DIP switches on switch bank 1 accordingly. A table
detailing the switch settings can be found at the end of this
document.
DIP switch bank 2 is reserved for setting the baud rate and
protocol details. This is factory set to 9600 Baud, Pelco-D
Protocol, N-8-1 (No Parity Bits, 8 Data Bits, 1 Stop Bit). Do not
attempt to change these settings as they are locked. Changing
the settings of Switch bank 2 could result in the camera not
responding to data commands.
Once the desired address has been set, carefully replace the
DIP switch cover plate.
Full details of the Pelco-D control protocol can be found at
www.pelco.com.
As well as the standard Pelco-D command set, Iris cameras use
their own commands based on the Pelco protocol to call
features that are specific to the model or are not covered by the
Pelco command set. For further details contact Iris Innovations.

called Germanium - not glass. Thermal Imaging
cameras cannot ʻseeʼ through glass.
IRIS216 / 316 Thermal Imaging PTZ (Shown with BRK-P160 Fixing Plate in ʻHangingʼ Orientation).
This style of housing from Iris is known as the 116 Series housing.
Once youʼve established a suitable fixing position, use the fixing
plate as a template to mark off the three Surface Fixing
Positions and the cable clearance position.
Observe extreme caution when siting the camera. Ensure the
act of drilling the pilot holes and cable entry hole does not
infringe any cables, equipment or fixtures behind the panel onto
which the camera is to be installed.
The camera is supplied with 3 x Stainless Steel, anti-tamper, self
tapping screws. Drill pilot holes accordingly and use a 14mm
hole saw to create the cable entry hole.
Attach the camera to itʼs base plate using the M5 x 10mm
Countersunk screws supplied. Iris recommend that a screw
fixing agent is used to strengthen the fit (see diagram below).
When the cables are correctly terminated (see next section),
offer the camera up into the fixing position and firmly screw into
place.
To avoid moisture ingress between the bottom of the BRK-P160
fixing plate and the surface onto which the camera is to be
attached, apply a bead of suitable silicone sealant around the
edge of the plate to create a seal.
Hardware Installation
Fix camera to mounting plate, routing umbilical cable through cable entry hole, then fix mounting plate to surface. Camera can be
installed either in the hanging orientation as shown below, or in the ʻdesktopʼ orientation as shown in the inset.
Cable Entry
Route umbilical cable through here.
M5 x 10mm Countersunk Screws
(Supplied) in 3 positions.
Fix Mounting Plate to base of camera
M5 x 10mm Countersunk Screws
(Supplied) in 3 positions.
Fix Mounting Plate to base of camera
Standard (or ʻDesktopʼ) Orientation
The camera is factory set for installation in the ʻStandardʼ orientation as shown here.
To install in the hanging orientation as shown in the main image above, ensure the
cameras video output has been set to vertical flip. This can either be done via your
controller or via the DIP switches. Details are provide later in this document.
6.01 Connections
As shown in the diagram below, a 3.5 meter ʻumbilicalʼ cable tail
extends from the base of the camera and is terminated with a
water resistant circular ʻAviationʼ connector. Into this connects a
500mm ʻBreakoutʼ lead, which has three separate tails as
shown. One for Video, one for DC 12V Power, and a third for
RS485 Serial Data connection.
Even if the cable connections are made in an internal location or
in an area that wouldnʼt usually be exposed to moisture, it is
recommended that the connections are protected from any
possible erosion or salt water / salt atmosphere conditions by
wrapping the terminations in a suitable tape of covering.

6.02 Video Connections
6.04 Powering Up
The camera breakout tail features a male BNC connector for the
video signal. When using coaxial video extension cables that are
usually also supplied with a male BNC connector, a BNC ʻThrupieceʼ adapter can be used to connect the two cables together.
The camera has a composite video output (1VP~P / 75Ω).
Ensure appropriate extension cables are used for this
specification. Contact Iris Innovations for further information if
you are unsure which cable to use.
Upon switching on the circuit breaker that isolates the camera,
the unit will perform an initialization routine. During this routine,
which lasts approximately 30 seconds, the camera will pan and
tilt automatically in order to calibrate itself. You will notice the
mechanical shutter 'wiping' the image frequently for the first few
minutes as the unit warms up. This will eventually settle into an
automatic interval of wiping approximately every 15 minutes.
This only lasts for a fraction of a second and allows the camera
to calibrate itself for the best possible image in accordance with
the ambient temperature.
Many Multifunctional Displays (MFDʼs) / Chart Plotters use RCA
(Phono) jacks for video inputs. In this case use a female BNC to
Phone Jack (Male) adapter. These are available from Iris
Innovations and can also be sourced from any good home
electronics / AV suppliers.
Video from Iris cameras can be viewed on most leading
manufacturers MFD / Chart Plotter products.
6.03 Data Connections
Ensure correct polarity is observed when connecting the RS485
serial data wires that provide control of the camera. Wires are
labelled RS485+ (Red) and RS485- (Black) for convenience.
The Transmit line (RS485+) should be connected to the Receive
line (RS485-) and vice versa. If, once connected you have no
control, reverse the polarity of the data wires as this is a
common error made during installations. Never connect the
RS485 wires to a power source as this could permanently
damage the camera or controller. Observe care when
connecting as the RS485 wires are coloured red and black and
could be confused for DC power lines.
Never apply power to the camera unless all connections are
terminated correctly. Never disconnect the DC ground for
any reason whilst the camera is powered up.
When the camera has completed its boot-up routine, a text
overlay table will appear in the screen displaying the camera
address, protocol, baud rate and current firmware version. You
will also notice the positional indicator icon in the bottom left
hand corner of the screen and the zoom bar at the center
bottom of the screen. When this message appears the camera
is ready to use and you are able to control the device.
7.01 Controlling the Camera
Extended Features
Your camera features positional controls and extended features.
Positional features such as Pan, Tilt and Zoom are usually
controlled via a compatible joystick controller, such as the
IRIS516 or IRIS507 controllers or via a compatible MFD / ChartPlotter - sometimes via touch-screen controls depending on the
make and model. Third party control methods may differ from
Iris controllers. For details of compatible third party control
interfaces please contact Iris Innovations. Control of extended
features depends on the type of controller you are using, but is
usually accessed via a menu system on the controller or third
party device (MFD / Chart-plotter etc). If using a third party
control interface consult the relevant user documentation for the
specific equipment for details.
Colour Palette Select:
A list of feature commands is included at the end of this
document.
Set-Up Features
The following features will only usually be called during the initial
set-up of the camera following installation:
•
!
VIdeo Standard Set-up.
PAL / NTSC
When changing the video standard, power the unit down and
then reboot for the adjustment to take place.
•
!
Video Orientation
UP / DOWN / UP+MIRROR / DOWN+MIRROR
Setting the vertical orientation (UP or DOWN) is determined by
the orientation of the camera (Standard = UP / Hanging (also
known as Ball Down) = DOWN). The mirror option is usually
only used when the camera is facing aft, and is usually only
applied to fixed cameras, as with a PTZ camera such as the 216
or 316, the camera pan position is frequently changing. Video
orientation can however easily be ʻflippedʼ as required with the
IRIS516 controller.
•
Set Home Position
!
This feature lets you set the home position of the camera
following install. Usually this is aligned with the bow of the boat.
This calibrates the positional indicator with the direction of the
camera.
Proportional Speed Control (Pan / Tilt / Zoom)
IRIS216/316 Thermal Cameras feature extremely accurate
multi-speed control with a Proportional Speed function that acts
like a gear in order to automatically control speed ratios in
accordance with the current level of zoom. The further the
camera is zoomed in, the slower it will pan and tilt when
commanded and vice versa. This greatly improves control
accuracy when zoomed in.
Auto-Flip
When the camera is tilted past its azimuth the Auto-Flip feature
is triggered. This automatically pans the camera through 180˚ at
full speed (Proportional Control is disabled during this
procedure) to the original pan position and continues the tilt
movement as long as the camera is still being tilted. This
corrects the orientation of the camera module as if the unit kept
tilting past the azimuth without the automatic correction, the
module would be upside down.
Iris 216 / 316 Thermal Cameras feature multiple colour palettes
which can be used in different conditions and situations to
enhance the image.

Non Uniformity Correction Control (NUC)
Manually operates shutter in order to recalibrate the thermal
sensitivity. When the shutter closes, the camera re-calibrates itʼs
temperature threshold to the uniform temperature of the shutter.
Non Uniformity Correction (or NUCʼing) also occurs
automatically to maintain a sharp image.
User Presets
The camera has a built in memory that can be used to store up
to 100 user ʻpresetʼ positions. A preset allows you to move the
camera to a favourite or important position and learn that
position so that the camera can be instructed to move at top
speed to that position at the touch of a button. For example, you
may want to point the camera so that itʼs facing directly aft so
you can take a look at whatʼs coming up behind you. By saving
this position as a Preset, you can send the camera back to this
position immediately by recalling the preset. Presets can also be
used to form ʻToursʼ, where the camera can be instruction to
step through each preset within the Tour in sequence with a predetermined dwell time between each position.
Tour 1
Preset Range 40 ~ 49
User presets are numbered 100-199. Usually the controller you
are using will have the ability to SET a Preset to learn the

System Presets
Certain functions of the camera that are not defined by the
Pelco-D Protocol are called by using Presets. A list of System
Presets can be found later in this document.
Scan Modes
The camera supports 4 different Scan Modes. Once activated,
tilt and zoom commands are still accepted by the camera but
you will not be able to pan the camera until the Scan has been
Stopped:

108˚.
There are three speed controls for each Scan. Slow, Medium

A command is also available to ʻRe-Centreʼ the scan. This can
be found in the command list.
Tours
A tour is a group of 10 user preset positions that are linked
together so that when activated, the camera will sequence to
each position with a 5 second dwell time between each preset.
There are 4 Tour patterns available. Each tour uses a range of
dedicated presets which must be set. Any unused presets wonʼt
be included in the tour. Reserved Tour presets are listed here:
8.01 Protocol Command List
The table below lists features specific to IRIS216/316 Thermal Cameras that are not covered by the standard Pelco-D protocol and the
commands that have been mapped in IRIS camera software to operate those features. Values are shown in hexadecimal. The
checksum for all Pelco-D commands is the 8 bit (modulo 256) sum of the payload bytes (bytes 2 ~ 6) within the message. Refer to the
Pelco-D protocol document for further information.
