RS-232
The LTC 8555/00 and LTC 8555/01 models use the Allegiant RS-485 communication protocol,
and are the most common versions. These models are ready to operate as soon as they’re
connected to the Allegiant system.
The LTC 8555/02 and LTC 8555/03 are similar, but use an RS-232 communication protocol.
These models can be used with communication links that support full duplex RS-232
transmission. Since the RS-232 models connect to the Allegiant’s RS-232 ports rather than
the standard RS-485 keyboard ports, some initial configuration programming of the Allegiant
switcher is necessary. With a few minor exceptions, general operation is identical for all
models.
Although the LTC 8555/00 and LTC 8555/01 are compatible with Allegiant systems of any age,
the LTC 8555/02 and LTC 8555/03 models require Allegiant CPU firmware version 7.6 or
higher. Although this version was released in late 1998, it is possible to update older systems
using a firmware download in some cases or by replacement of the CPU module with a
current version. If necessary, contact your local sales office for additional details.

Description
The LTC 8555 Series Keyboard is the primary operator interface to the Allegiant Series of
Video Matrix Switcher/Controllers. These keyboards provide access to system switching
operations, programming, alarm response, and camera control. Both fixed speed and variable
speed pan/tilt-equipped cameras are easily operated via the intuitive joystick control. In
addition, simple rotation of the joystick knob allows operators to control cameras equipped
with motorized zoom lenses.
Easy to read LED displays show real time camera, monitor, and communication status, as well
as error messages. Keyboards also provide audible and visual indications of system alarm
conditions. A built-in diagnostic mode makes troubleshooting of suspected fault conditions
easy.

LTC 8800 Series
LTC 8900 Series
In LTC 8600, and LTC 8900 systems, standard keyboards above eight are connected to the
systems using either an LTC 8714 Series Keyboard Port Expander, or a combination of LTC
8714 and LTC 8715 Series Keyboard Port Expander accessory units. Keyboard Port Expander
units are Allegiant accessory devices that are purchased separately. In LTC 8800 systems,
keyboards above eight can be connected to the LTC 8802 Monitor Expansion bay (up to 8
more) and/or Keyboard Port Expanders. RS-232 model keyboards are connected to the
Allegiant’s console or printer port or to ports provided by a LTC 8712 Series Console
Expander unit.
When connected directly to an Allegiant CPU bay using either the supplied cable or the
optional LTC 8558 Extension Cable, the keyboard is powered by the Allegiant power supply.
In all other configurations power to the keyboard is typically provided via a power adapter
included in the optional LTC 8557 Series Remote Hookup kit.
The Allegiant Switcher supports several options affecting keyboard operation:
–
login security mode setting
–
enabled / disabled keyboard ports
–
fixed or variable speed communication protocol setting
–
4-digit or 6-digit Camera ID mode
These options are selected via Allegiant CPU dipswitch settings, Allegiant Keyboard User
Functions, or via options in the PC based Master Control Software package. Refer to the
Allegiant Installation manual for complete details regarding these options.
Several options are available to connect the LTC 8555 Series Keyboards to the Allegiant main

LTC 8555/00 and LTC 8555/01 (standard keyboard) Installation
There are several options available for connecting these keyboard models to an Allegiant
system. The keyboard is supplied with a 3 m (10 ft) cable for local hookups, as shown in
FIGURE 1. Using the optional LTC 8558/00 cable, a keyboard can be remoted up to 30 m (100
ft) per Figure 2. In both of these cases, the keyboard cable can be connected directly to the
RJ-11 keyboard port located on the rear panel of the Allegiant system where it will be
provided with both data and power.
For connections beyond 30 m (100 ft), the LTC 8557 Series Remote Hookup Kit can be used,
as shown in Figure 3. The LTC 8557 is also required when the keyboard is remoted over a long
distance communication link, such as a fiber optic system shown in Figure 4.

Installation
5.3.1
General
The RS-232 protocol versions of the LTC 8555 Series keyboards can be connected to either an
Allegiant LTC 8712 Series Console Port Expander accessory unit, or the 9-pin Console or
Printer (if equipped) RS-232 port on the back of the Allegiant system. The keyboard may be
connected via hardwired cable or using another type of communication system conforming to
standard RS-232 transmission.
For each keyboard being installed, an LTC 8557 Series Remote Hookup Kit (sold separately),
user-supplied 9-pin mating connector, and user-supplied cable suitable for use with RS-232
signals is required. Refer to the most applicable configuration diagram.
5.3.2
Keyboard Number Assignments when Using RS-232 Model Keyboards
Use of RS-232 protocol keyboards does not increase the total number of keyboards that can
be connected to an Allegiant switcher. When an RS-232 keyboard is connected in the system,
a standard keyboard port will automatically become disabled. The disabled keyboard port
number will be based on the interface connection type of the RS-232 keyboard. Keeping track
of these keyboard numbers is necessary when priority-based restrictions, or other keyboard
related lockouts, are assigned and used in the system.
The table below indicates which keyboard number will be assigned, based on the connection
being used.

Allegiant System Command Scripts for RS-232 Model Keyboards
When a keyboard is being connected to an Allegiant’s Console port, or an Allegiant Printer
port configured to operate in the Console mode, the Allegiant must be preprogrammed so the
port will operate in the RS-232 keyboard mode.
The mode of the Allegiant’s Console port can be changed either by a manually entered ASCII
text command, or preprogramming the Allegiant CPU with an Allegiant Command Script. The
Command Script method is preferred since the appropriate settings are automatically
restored after a system power loss or reset. Manually entered commands remain valid only
until the system is reset or powered off/on, so typically they should be used only for
temporary or test purposes.
To manually configure an Allegiant’s Console port to operate in the keyboard mode, it is
necessary to connect to the system via Windows® HyperTerminal or another dumb terminal
emulator.
Note: Allegiant Console and Printer RS-232 ports do not use a standard RS-232 pinout. Use of
an Allegiant Console cable is recommended (If necessary refer to the Allegiant Console cable
pinout reference at the end of this manual).
The Allegiant RS-232 settings are user-programmable, but the default settings are:
Baud:
Stop bits:
Data bits:
Parity:
Handshake:
19,200

None
None
Once online with the system, an Allegiant prompt appears each time Enter is pressed. The
prompt will look as follows:
TC8x00 >
where x is a digit from one to nine (varies based on the Allegiant model being interfaced)
At the system prompt, manually enter the appropriate command, based on the Allegiant port
in use, and type of keyboard interface. Refer to the table below to determine the correct
command. Enter the command exactly as shown below, then press ENTER.

Console Expander Configuration when Using RS-232 Model Keyboards
RS-232 model keyboards may be connected to an Allegiant system using the LTC 8712 Series
Console Port Expander, as shown in Figure 5.7. An LTC 8712 Series Console Port Expander
can be configured to support up to four RS-232 Keyboard connections. Other devices, such as
a PC running the Allegiant Master Control software, can be connected to the unused ports of
the Port Expander. Because the Port Expander supports only a single baud rate for the
external connections, and the RS-232 keyboards require 9600 baud, all external devices
connecting to the Port Expander must be configured to for operation at this setting.

Allegiant Keyboards
To configure an Allegiant system to operate with an LTC 8712 Console Port Expander, you
must have access to the Allegiant CPU’s dipswitches, the PC-based LTC 8059 Master Control
Software, and possibly an Allegiant keyboard.
To convert an Allegiant Console port using a CPU dipswitch method, set dipswitches 3 and 4
to the ON position on CPU dipswitch S100, S1001, or S0201 (the switch number depends on
the Allegiant model being used). After a system reset (power off/on, for example), the
Allegiant’s Console port is forced into the Port Expander mode, and the RS-232 data rate is
automatically set to 57,600 baud. To convert an Allegiant Console port via the Master Control
Software, connect to the Allegiant and go online. Select the Parameter tab, and then the
Options tab. Check the box labeled Set Console Port to Port-Expander mode. Download the
table into the Allegiant.
To convert an Allegiant Printer port to operate in the Port Expander mode, first configure the
Printer port to operate as a Console port. This is done by setting dipswitch 4 to the ON
position on CPU dipswitch S101, S1002, or S0202 (the switch number depends on the
Allegiant model being used). After a system reset (power off/on, for example), the Printer port
will begin to operate as a Console port. Next, use either the Allegiant Keyboard User Function
38 or the Master Control Software to change the port to the Port Expander mode. If using the
Master Control Software, connect to the Allegiant and go online. Select the Parameter tab,
and then the Options tab. Check the box labeled Set Printer Port to Port-Expander mode.
Download the table into the Allegiant.

1. Set this dipswitch to ON to enable handshaking if a modem is connected to the Port Expander and used
for communicating to an RS-232 keyboard. Because the Port Expander uses this setting for all external
connections, all external devices connecting to the Port Expander must be configured to operate using a
hardware handshake interface.
Remember to power the Console Port Expander off/on whenever any changes are made to its
internal dipswitches.
Connect the data cable supplied with the LTC 8712 Console Port Expander between the unit
and the appropriately configured port on the Allegiant. For further details refer to the
instructions supplied with the LTC 8712 Port Expander unit.
Using an optional LTC 8557 Hookup Kit, the RS-232 keyboard can now be connected to the
appropriate port of the Port Expander, as shown in Figure 8.
If a modem is being used, follow the same connections and configuration settings described
in the previous section when interfacing directly to an Allegiant Console port.

Login Feature when Using RS-232 Model Keyboards
The Allegiant’s keyboard login feature is not affected by use of RS-232 keyboards. If desired,
this feature can be enabled to provide additional security to the system. Note that it is not
possible to use the Allegiant’s Console port login feature. The RS-232 keyboards must have
unrestricted access to the Allegiant’s RS-232 ports.

Keyboard Controls
6.1
Joystick
Camera positioning is controlled via an eight-way joystick on the right-hand side of the
keyboard. This joystick is used to move a pan/tilt-equipped camera up, down, left, right or
diagonally. Rotating the ZOOM control knob causes the lens to either zoom in or out. The
direction of its response depends upon several factors, including the camera/lens model, and
certain system configuration settings determined at installation. Up to four pan/tilt/zoom
commands may be sent to a remote camera site at one time (example: Zoom In, Focus Far,
Pan Left, and Tilt Down).
6.2
Focus and Iris Lens Controls
The lens control buttons are at the right side of the keyboard. Use these buttons to control
cameras equipped with motorized zoom lenses to focus near or far, and open or close the iris
(if the lens supports manual iris operations). Up to three zoom lens functions can be sent
simultaneously (example: Zoom Out using the joystick knob, Focus Near, and Iris Open).
6.3
Numeric Keypad
Use the numeric keypad when it’s necessary to enter a numeric value, for instance, Camera
numbers, Monitor numbers, user number, or password information. Leading zeros are not
necessary when entering a number.
6.4
“*” (Star) Button
The ‘*’ key is used to activate an advanced programming feature in the Allegiant CPU. It has no
default function, and will cause ERROR 96 to occur unless an associated Command Script has
been programmed into the Allegiant.
6.5
Other Keyboard Buttons
See the Operating section of this manual.
6.6
Keyboard Displays
The keyboard has two groups of seven-segment LED displays. The monitor LED display is a
three-digit display that shows the number of the monitor currently being controlled by the
keyboard. During certain operating modes, it may also display prompts and diagnostic
information.
The camera LED display is a four-digit seven-segment display that shows the number of the
camera being viewed on the monitor that the keyboard is controlling. There are three modes
for this display; camera mode is the default, but when the operator pushes one of the numeric
data keys, the display shows the numeric keystrokes as entered from the keyboard, and also
causes the decimal point, in the lower right-hand side of the camera display, to light. If the

User Information
7.1
General
The Allegiant system is factory-supplied with various user-selectable features set to their
default states (the main Allegiant system Installation Manual contains complete descriptions).
Since these features are user-selectable and have a significant effect on system behavior,
some of the descriptions below may not apply to your system configuration.
7.2
Keyboard Login Procedure
Two modes of keyboard access exist. The factory default settings, allow the keyboard to be
used as soon as it is connected to an operating Allegiant system. The second mode requires
operators to logon to the keyboard before access to the system is permitted. A valid User
number and password are required. If the login feature is being used, the system installer or
administrator typically provides this information to all operators requiring system access.
Perform the following steps to login to the keyboard:
1.
If the keyboard is displaying a camera and monitor number, it is already logged on; no
action is required. When the keyboard is in a logged off state, the left side LEDs display 3
flashing dashes.
2.
3.
Press ON. A 'U' should appear in the LED display as a prompt for entering a User number.
Enter your User number via the numeric keypad, then press ENTER. Up to 32 user
numbers are available (128 for Allegiant LTC 8900 models).
4.
If the entry is incorrect, press CLEAR and repeat the above step.
5.
Press ENTER.
6.
Verify that the keyboard monitor display now shows a 'P'.
7.
Enter the password (maximum of six digits). The keyboard camera display indicates the
number of digits entered, but not the actual password. Press ENTER when finished
entering the user password.

Modem Dialing (applies to LTC 855/02 and LTC 8555/03 models
only)
The LTC 8555/02 and LTC 8555/03 keyboard models support the ability to dial the phone
number of an attached modem. When the keyboard is offline, pressing ENTER causes it to go
into dial mode. Modem initialization takes a few seconds, then the keyboard displays “dial” in
the camera number display.
Enter the phone number via the keypad. The “*” (star) button can be used to insert a pause
between digits. The digits scroll to the left in the monitor display as the phone number is
entered. Use CLEAR to backspace over the digits in the reverse order that they were entered.
Although the modem remembers all digits entered, the keyboard only remembers the last
four, so if CLEAR is pressed repeatedly, the display begins to show periods after it has cleared
4 digits.
Once the entire number has been entered, press ENTER to initiate modem dialing. Press USER
at any time to cancel dialing. Dialing is also cancelled if CLEAR or ENTER is pressed when no
digits have been entered.
The keyboard will flash the word “dial” in its display until a connection with the system is
established, and it begins to receive data from the Allegiant switcher. If no data is received
within one minute, the keyboard will time out and return to the flashing dashes mode.
If the modem is online, and the user is logged in, pressing USER 190 ENTER forces the modem
to hang up immediately.

Keyboard Operating Instructions
7.5.1
Camera Selection
In default mode, enter a valid 1 to 4 digit camera number using the numeric keypad and press
ENTER.
If the Allegiant is configured to operate in “6-digit Camera ID” mode, up to 6 digits can be
entered. If the new camera is at the same “site” as the current camera, simply enter 1 to 4
camera number digits.
If the desired camera is at a different “site”, 5 or 6 digits must be entered. The first and
second digits would be the site number and the remaining 4 digits, including any leading zeros
would be the camera number at that site.
Note: The keyboard's CAMERA button does not need to be used for simple camera selections.
The button is only useful when it’s necessary to cancel a previous incomplete action, such as
canceling a monitor selection, and return to the camera number entry mode.
7.5.2
Monitor Selection
To select which monitor will respond to the operator 's keyboard commands, press MONITOR.
Enter a valid monitor number via the numeric keypad and press ENTER. The number of the
selected monitor will appear on the keyboard's monitor display.
7.5.3
Lock or Unlock Control of a Camera
Press LOCK, then ON to lock a camera, or OFF to unlock a camera. If the camera to be locked
is not the one currently being viewed, enter the camera number via the numeric keyboard, but
do not press ENTER, before you press LOCK.
If the Status option is enabled, the section of the on-screen overlay between the camera
number and the time now shows “RL”, indicating the camera is locked. Activating a camera
lock immediately prevents other operators (unless they have a higher priority) from
controlling the locked pan/tilt/zoom camera. Remember to unlock the camera when finished
so that all operators can access it.

Lock or Unlock Control of a Monitor
Press MONITOR, then LOCK and ON to lock a monitor, or OFF to unlock the monitor. If the
monitor to be unlocked is not the one currently being controlled by the keyboard, enter the
monitor number (but do not press ENTER) after you press the MONITOR key. Then press the
LOCK and ON key. If the Status option is enabled, the section of the on-screen overlay
between the camera number and the time now shows “ML”, indicating the monitor is locked.
This prevents other operators (unless they have a higher priority) from changing the video on
the monitor being used. Remember to unlock the monitor when finished so that all operators
can access it.
Note: If an operator with a higher priority accesses a locked monitor and switches to a
different camera, the lock will automatically be removed.
7.5.5
Recording a Camera Pre-position Scene
Select a camera with pan/tilt/zoom control (with pre-position options), as described above.
Using the joystick and lens controls, adjust the camera to view the scene to be stored. Press
SET, then select the scene number using the numeric keypad, and press ENTER. The camera
position is now stored, for later recall.
If an AutoDome® camera is being used, certain pre-position commands are also used to
activate operational features and functions. Refer to the AutoDome operation manual for
complete information. If a conventional Allegiant Receiver/Driver is being controlled, the pan/
tilt/zoom lens must have the necessary options for pre-position operation.
Certain AutoDome models and Allegiant Receiver/Driver series have the capability to disable a
previously stored pre-position or remove one from a pre-position tour by pressing SET, the
digit 9, followed by the 2-digit pre-position number. Information supplied with the device will
identify whether this feature is available.
7.5.6
Recalling a Camera Pre-position Scene
Select the camera to be activated and press SHOT, then enter a previously stored camera
scene number via the numeric keypad and press ENTER. The camera automatically returns to
the previously stored position.
If a second pre-position is called prior to the completion of the first, the camera moves
directly to the second shot. If using an AutoDome camera, certain pre-position commands
may be used to activate operational features and functions. Refer to the AutoDome operation
manual for more information.
7.5.7
Activate/Deactivate Auxiliary Function
To turn on an auxiliary function of a remote camera device, press ON, enter the number of the
auxiliary to be activated, and press ENTER. Holding down the ENTER key causes the auxiliary
function to be sent repeatedly. This capability is useful when the auxiliary is activating a
housing window washer function, or a temporary light source.
To turn off an auxiliary function of a remote camera device, press OFF, enter the number of
the auxiliary to be deactivated, then press ENTER.
With AutoDome cameras, auxiliary commands are used to activate/deactivate certain
operational features and functions. Refer to the manual supplied with the AutoDome camera
for complete information on supported features.
In the Allegiant Receiver/Driver series, the first 4 auxiliaries correspond to relay outputs.
Option switches in the receiver/driver can configure these to operate as either ‘latching’ or
‘momentary’ functions. If configured for the 'latching' type, the auxiliary will stay on once
activated, until turned off. If configured as 'momentary', the auxiliary remains on only as long
as ENTER is held down. Auxiliary outputs 2 through 4 can also be configured as contact
closures, 24 VAC, or as line voltage. Auxiliary number 5 controls the DITHER function (see
F.01U.127.290 | 2.0 | 2009.03
Instruction Manual
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
Allegiant Keyboards

below). Auxiliary number 6 corresponds to an internal receiver/driver AUTO-PANNING feature
that must have been previously enabled via an option switch internal to the receiver/driver.
DITHER is a legacy Allegiant Receiver/Driver feature designed to extend the life of tube-based
low-light level cameras. Its function was to prevent bright lights in the scene from burning a
spot on the camera imager. When this feature is active and the pan/tilt is not moved for a
period of about 2 minutes, the receiver/driver automatically pans right for approximately 0.5
seconds. Two minutes later, a pan left occurs. This cycle continues until disabled. The feature
is enabled via an option switch in the receiver/driver, and is activated by turning on auxiliary
5. To deactivate the feature, turn off auxiliary 5. When first enabled, the pan/tilt unit makes
one short Left/Right cycle to indicate that the DITHER function has been activated. Note that
a camera in the DITHER mode accumulates a viewing error if left unattended for a long period
of time, so occasionally a manual adjustment of the pan/tilt may be required.
7.5.8
Arm/Disarm Individual Alarms
Alarm commands are used to control the system's automatic video switching, in response to
alarm signals. To arm/disarm an individual alarm on the monitor currently controlled by the
keyboard, press ALARM. Enter the alarm number to be armed using the numeric keypad, and
press ON to arm the alarm, or OFF to disarm it.
Using default settings, the camera activated by an alarm is normally the same as the alarm
number, but this relationship can be changed via the optional Allegiant PC based Master
Control Software package. In cases where the alarm number does not match the camera
number, it is important to specify the alarm number when using this command.
The monitor status display (if enabled) shows “'CA” (camera/alarm armed) whenever an
armed camera is selected.
7.5.9
Arm/Disarm All Alarms
To arm/disarm all alarms on the monitor currently controlled by the keyboard, press USER,
ALARM, then ON to arm all alarms, or OFF to disarm all alarms.
7.5.10
Arm/Disarm Monitor
To arm/disarm the monitor currently controlled by the keyboard, press USER, MONITOR, then
ON to arm the monitor, or OFF to disarm the monitor.
Note: Alarm video will appear on a given monitor only if the monitor is armed and the alarm is
armed for that monitor. The monitor status display (if enabled) shows “MA” (monitor armed).
7.5.11
Acknowledgment of Alarms
ACK is provided so system operators can respond to alarms from the keyboard. Pressing ACK
while the keyboard is beeping due to an alarm condition always silences the beeper.
Depending on alarm configuration programming, subsequent pressing of the ACK key either
clears alarm video from the monitors, or has no effect.
7.5.12
Load/Clear a Sequence
To load a previously programmed sequence so it can be run on your monitor, press
SEQUENCE, enter the desired sequence number (1 to 60 for most Allegiant models, or 1 to
256 for the LTC 8900 system), and then press ENTER. Note that loading a sequence does not
automatically initiate the sequence. Refer to the following sections for sequence control
information.
Since sequences may be programmed to use more than one monitor, all monitors required for
a sequence must be available. If a sequence is already on a monitor, the operator who loaded
it originally (or an operator with a higher priority) is permitted to load a new sequence on the
monitor or monitors. Others receive an error message.

Allegiant Keyboards
To clear a sequence from a monitor, press SEQUENCE and ENTER. Only the operator who
loaded it originally (or an operator with a higher priority) is permitted to clear a sequence
from a monitor. Others receive an error message.
If enabled, the status display area of the monitor indicates the sequence number in the
appropriate location. If no sequence is currently loaded, “00” is displayed.
7.5.13
Run a Sequence
To run a sequence currently loaded on a monitor, press RUN. If the sequence was stopped,
the RUN command will initiate sequencing. The direction of sequencing is indicated in the
monitor status display (if enabled) by a directional arrow and the letter 'R' to the right of the
sequence number. If RUN is pressed while a sequence is already running, the switcher goes
immediately to the next step in the sequence, and continues to run. Holding down RUN
produces a 'quick-scan' effect. If RUN is pressed when no sequence is loaded, an error results.
If the monitor is in alarm, RUN controls the switching of alarm video rather than a loaded
sequence.
7.5.14
Stop a Running Sequence
Press HOLD to stop a sequence if one is currently running. The monitor status display shows
'S' to the right of the sequence number. If the sequence is already stopped, pressing HOLD
has no effect. If no sequence is currently loaded, pressing HOLD results in an error condition.
If the monitor is in alarm, HOLD stops the alarm switcher rather than a loaded sequence.
7.5.15
Controlling the Direction of a Sequence
The direction of a sequence can be set to run in either a forward or reverse direction. It is also
possible to manually step though a stopped sequence, either forward or reverse. These
actions work as follows:
–
If NEXT is pressed with the sequence in the stop state, the sequence switches forward
and remains stopped. If the sequence is running when NEXT is pressed, it immediately
goes to the next step and continues to run. The same is true for PREV, but in the reverse
direction. If either NEXT or PREV is held down, a 'quick-scan' effect, switching at a rate of
approximately two steps per second, takes place. When sequences are first loaded, the
direction defaults to forward
–
If PREV is pressed while a camera sequence is running, it reverses the sequence. If PREV
is pressed while in a hold mode and the display is showing the forward prompt, the first
push changes the direction only, and a second push switches to the previous step. The
same is true for NEXT in the opposite direction. The monitor status display shows an
arrow pointing either up or down, indicating the direction of the sequence. The arrow is
to the right of the sequence number, either above or below the sequence run ‘R’ or
stopped ‘S’ indicator. If the monitor is in alarm, PREV and NEXT control the alarm
switcher rather than the loaded sequence.
–
If no sequence is loaded, pressing NEXT or PREV automatically steps the switcher
through the camera numbers in numerical order.
7.5.16
Programming a Simple Camera Sequence
The Allegiant system has very powerful sequencing capabilities. Using a system keyboard, it is
possible to enter sequences that will run on a single monitor or multiple monitors. As long as
valid camera and monitor numbers are used, they can be entered into a sequence in a
completely random order. More powerful features are available when sequences are
programmed via the PC-based LTC 8059 Master Control Software, including the capability to
activate receiver/driver actions as part of a sequence step.

The only limitation associated with sequence programming is the CPU memory required for
storing the sequence steps. The current limit for most Allegiant models is 3000 steps, but the
LTC 8900 supports up to 6000 steps.
Consider a sequence as being similar to a spreadsheet; a simple sequence would consist of 3
columns of information that would look as follows:
Camera
1
2
3
4
5
Monitor
1
1
1
1
1
Dwell
2
2
2
2
2
Programming of sequences can best be described by going through the above example.
Initiate the programming mode by pressing PROGRAM. Enter an available sequence number
(1 to 60 for most Allegiant models; 1 to 256 for LTC 8900 systems), then press ENTER. The
on-screen monitor display will change to the following format:
1st Line
Camera (Ignore)
S0001
L0001
Time (Ignore)
2nd Line
>C0001<
M001
D02
(Date (Ignore)
The top line of the display always indicates the current step being viewed, in the S0001
section. Total length of the sequence is displayed in the L0001 section.
When programming a new sequence, the camera number that was being viewed before
entering the programming mode is automatically placed within the > < prompts (as in the
above example showing camera number C0001 on the 2nd line). Enter the first camera of the
sequence into this position. If the camera number is correct, no action is necessary. If not,
enter the desired camera number via the keypad, and press ENTER.
Using the joystick control, move to the RIGHT one step. The prompts will shift over to the
monitor number shown above as M001. The monitor that was being controlled by the
keyboard before entering the programming mode defaults to this position. If it is correct, no
action is necessary. If not, enter the desired monitor number via the keypad, and press
ENTER.
Move RIGHT again. The prompts now shift over to the dwell time shown above as D02. The
default dwell time for a new sequence is two seconds. If a different dwell period for this step
is desired, change the value to any number between 1 and 60. One line is now complete.
Press NEXT to add a second line. The camera number automatically increments, but monitor
number and dwell remain the same as the first line. Since this line is correct, no change is
necessary and NEXT may be pressed three more times, until line five is reached. Note that the
joystick can be used to move around within the spreadsheet, but only the NEXT key adds new
lines.
Continue entering camera, monitor, and dwell times in the same fashion until finished. To
store the sequence for future use and then exit programming mode, press PROG. If you press
RUN, the programming mode exits, the sequence is stored into memory, and the sequence
begins to run. The switcher steps through the five steps in the order shown, and repeats the
sequence when it reaches the last step.
To program a sequence that runs once through its steps and then stops, enter the value 62 for
the dwell time in the last step, and press ENTER. The dwell display will change to the STP
indicator, meaning stop. To program a sequence that runs once through its steps, and then
unloads itself, enter the value 63 for the dwell time in the last step and press ENTER. The
dwell display changes to ULD, meaning unload.
To edit an existing sequence, press PROG, enter the existing sequence number, and then
press ENTER. You can insert a line into a sequence by navigating to the appropriate line and

pressing ON. An identical line will be added to the next step. To delete a step, navigate to the
line and press OFF. To delete all steps below the line you’re viewing, press LOCK. (Be careful
with this feature!)
To completely erase a sequence, press LOCK while on the first line of the sequence, and then
press OFF. The sequence is then erased, and programming mode automatically exits.
7.5.17
Programming a SalvoSwitching Camera Sequence
A SalvoSwitching® sequence allows specification of a group of monitors that will switch
together as a synchronized group. To program a salvo sequence, enter the programming mode
as described above for a simple camera sequence. Since a salvo sequence involves multiple
monitors switching as a group, the sequence must involve more than 1 monitor. An example of
a simple salvo sequence that switches cameras on three monitors simultaneously is shown
below in spreadsheet format:
Camera
1
2
3
7
8
9
21
22
23

SLV
2
In general, follow the instructions used for the simple camera sequence described above, but
instead of entering a number of seconds for steps that must switch instantly, enter 61 and
press ENTER. When 61 is entered, the switcher automatically changes to the salvo
abbreviation SLV. Dwell time (in seconds) is entered only upon reaching the step containing
the last monitor to be switched within the synchronized group.

Error Messages
The keyboard is designed to emit a short beep and display an error number whenever
Allegiant system error messages are generated. Error messages are generated for various
reasons, including entry of an erroneous key sequence or restricted function invocation.
Some errors contain more than one message. For example, if an attempt is made to access a
monitor or controllable camera which has been locked by a higher priority operator, the
camera number is temporarily replaced with an appropriate error number, then the number of
the operator who placed the lock is briefly displayed.
Refer to the Installation manual supplied with the Allegiant system for a complete listing of
error messages applicable to your model system.
