Appendix
Appendix 1 Lightning & Surge Protection
This product adopts TVS plate lightning protection technology to avoid damage caused by pulse
signal that is below 3000W, like instantaneous lighting, surging, etc. According to the actual
situation outdoors, necessary protection measures must be taken to secure the electrical safety.
The distance between signal transmission line and High-voltage equipment or high-voltage cable
is at least 50m.
Outdoor wiring should better be along the eaves as much as possible.
In the open field, wiring should be buried underground in sealed steel pipe, and the steel-pipe
should be one-point grounding. Overhead routing method is forbidden.
In strong thunderstorm area or high induction voltage areas (such as high-voltage transformer
substation), high power lightning protection apparatus and lightning conductor are necessary to
be appended.
The design for installation and wiring with lightning protection and grounding in mind should be
combined with the lightning protection consideration of the building, and conform to the
related national standards and industry standards.
The system should be equipotentially grounded, and the grounding equipment must satisfy
double-request of system anti-jamming and electric safety, and it must not appear short circuit
and open circuit with the zero conductor of strong grid. When the system is grounding individual,
the resistance should be no more than 4Ω, the section al area of the grounding cable should be
no less than 25mm2. For grounding instructions, please refer to the Installation Manual of Speed
dome.

Appendix 2 RS485 Bus Connection
General Property of RS485 Bus
According to RS485 industry bus standard, RS485 is a half-duplex communication bus which has
120Ω characteristic impendence, the maximum load ability is 32 payloads (including controller
device and controlled device).
RS485 Bus Transmission Distance
When using 0.56mm (24AWG) twisted-pair line, according to different baudrate, the maximum
transmission distance theory table is shown as below:
Table A-1 Max. Distance of RS485 Transmission
Baudrate
Max. Distance
2400BPS
1800m
4800BPS
1200m
9600BPS
800m
The transmission distance will be decreased if we use the thinner cable, or use this product under
the strong electromagnetic interference situation, or there are lots of devices are added to the bus;
on the contrary, the transmission distance will be increased.
Connection Methods
RS485 industry bus standard require daisy-chain connection method between any devices, both
sides have to connect a 120Ω terminal resistance (show as Diagram 1), the simplified connection
method is shown as diagram 2, but the distance of “D” should not be too long.
22
IR Speed Dome User Manual
Figure A-2 RS485 Connection 1
Figure A-3 RS485 Connection 2
Problems in the Practical Application
Normally, users adopt star-shape connection method in construction, under this situation, the
terminal resistors must be connected between two farthest devices (as Figure A- 4, 1# and 15#), but
this connection method is not satisfy the requirement of the RS485 industry standard so that it will
lead to some problems such as signal reflection, anti-jamming ability decline when the devices are
faraway. At this time, the speed dome will be uncontrollable, or self-running, etc.
Figure A-4 Star Shape Connection
For such case, the best way is adding a RS485 distributor. This product can effectively change the
star-shape connection to which satisfies the requirement of RS485 industry standard, in order to
avoid those problems and improve the communication reliability.

Glossary
Note:
The glossary gives brief explanations to the basic operation principle or the basic function of the
speed dome. However, it doesn’t mean the listed functions are all supported by this series of speed
dome. For the detailed functions of this series of speed dome, please refer to the specification of
the corresponding speed dome.
3D Intelligent Positioning
The speed dome can be controlled with the 2 buttons and scroll of mouse can be used under
PRIVATE-Code protocols with devices and client software. Click on a certain area and the device will
move to the scene with corresponding point as the center. When a rectangular area is selected by
left-clicking the mouse, device will move to its center and enlarge it. With right-clicking, the lens will
zoom in, and the scroll can easily make the lens zooming, and mouse operation automatically
incorporates zooming effect.
Auto Scan
The speed dome provides 5 scanning modes: pan scanning, tilt scanning, frame scanning, random
scanning and panorama scanning. The scanning speed can be set by OSD menu from level 1 to 40,
with the corresponding speed ranging from 1°/second to 40°/second.
Auto Flip
In manual tracking mode, when a target object goes directly beneath the speed dome, the speed
dome will automatically rotate 90 degrees in horizontal direction to maintain continuity of tracking.
Auto Focus
The auto focus enables the camera to focus automatically to maintain clear video images.
Alarm Response Action
The speed dome supports 7 alarm inputs which can be set to NO or NC. Upon having received the
alarm input signal, the speed dome will automatically activate a user-defined action, which can be
programmed to: preset 1-8, pattern 1-4, patrol 1-8, pan scan, tilt scan, random scan, frame scan,
panoramic scan, color/B&W mode or none. After the alarm is cleared, the speed dome is capable of
resuming its previous activity or position.
AUX Output
An auxiliary output is a configurable signal from the speed dome back box that can trigger another
device to operate. The speed dome provides two auxiliary outputs: AUX1 andAUX2. The auxiliary
output type can be set to NO (normally open) or NC (normally closed) by menu. And the alarm
dwell time is configurable as well.
Backlight Compensation (BLC)
If a bright backlight is present, the subjects in the picture may appear dark or as a silhouette.
Backlight compensation (BLC) enhances objects in the center of the picture. The dome uses the
center of the picture to adjust the iris. If there is a bright light source outside of this area, it will
wash out to white. The camera will adjust the iris so that the object in the sensitive area is properly
exposed.
Camera Title
27
IR Speed Dome User Manual
Title text is the label used to identify the camera viewed on the monitor. Up to 15 characters can be
used for a title
DAY/NIGHT Auto-switch
The speed dome delivers color images during the day; as light diminishes at night, it switches to
night mode and delivers black and white images with high quality. You can also switch it to NIGHT
mode manually to increase the sensitivity in low light conditions.
Digital Noise Reduction (DNR)
DNR is the process of removing noise from a signal. It compensates for the low-light conditions, and
corrects imperfections in the image by removing a large percentage of the noises; it helps to deliver
a cleaner signal, a more visually appealing image, and make it easier to identify the objects.
Exposure Compensation
Exposure compensation is a function for adjusting the situations including unusual lighting
distribution, variations, non-standard processing, or other conditions of underexposure or
overexposure to get an optimum image.
PTZ Control
The pan/tilt movement and zoom actions of speed dome can be controlled by the control devices
like keyboard, DVR, matrix, etc.
Limit Stops
The speed dome can be programmed to move within the limit stops (left/right, up/down) which are
configurable by the control keyboard, DVR or client application software.
Manchester Code Self-test
The speed dome supports Manchester code self-test for error diagnostic while adopting Manchester
protocol. You can enable the Manchester code diagnosis function by setting the positions 4, 5 and 6
of DIP Switch SW2 to ON. The corresponding error code will be displayed on the screen (not
available during park time).

Menu Function
IR speed dome supports Menu function. You can check the related information and the status of the
speed dome through the operation menu, and you can also configure its parameters via the menu.
On Screen Display(OSD)
The IR speed dome provides a series of on screen display for better operation. The on screen display
28
IR Speed Dome User Manual
includes Zoom, Pan/Tilt angle, Preset title, and Time, etc
Preset Freeze Frame
This feature freezes the scene on the monitor when going to a preset. This allows for smooth
transition from one preset scene to another and also guarantees that masked area will not be
revealed when going to a preset.
Presets
Each of the user-definable presets can be programmed to use pan, tilt, camera settings and other
settings. When preset is called, the speed dome will automatically move to the defined position.
User is allowed to add, modify, delete and call each preset.
Patrol
The high speed dome provides up to 8 patrols. In each patrol, user is allowed to specify the scanning
track by a group of user-defined presets, with the scanning speed between two presets and the
dwell time at the preset separately programmable.
Pattern
A pattern is a memorized, repeating series of pan, tilt, zoom, and preset functions that can be
recalled with a command from a controller or automatically by a configured function (park, time
task, or power-up). By default the focus and iris are in auto status during the preset is being
memorized.
Privacy Mask
The privacy mask allows a user to program user-defined areas that cannot be viewed by the
operator of the speed dome system. A masked area will move with pan and tilt functions and
automatically adjust in size as the lens zooms telephoto and wide. Privacy Mask: This function
allows you to block or mask certain areas of a scene to prevent the personal privacy from being
recorded or viewed.
Proportional Pan
Proportional pan automatically reduces or increases the pan and tilt speeds in proportion to the
amount of zoom. At telephoto zoom settings, the pan and tilt speeds will be slower for a given
amount of joystick deflection than at wide zoom settings. This keeps the image from moving too fast
on the monitor when there is a large amount of zoom.
Power-off Memory
This feature allows the speed dome to resume its previous position or status after power is restored.
By default setting, the speed dome supports the power-off memory capability with the dwell time
of 3 minutes.
Password protection
It’s a function to prevent unauthorized changes to the dome settings.
RS-485 Failure Diagnostics
In the presence of failure at the transmitting and receiving terminals of RS-485 communications, the
speed dome is capable of performing self-test and detecting the fault results which will be displayed
on the screen.
Self-adaptive Protocol
The speed dome is compatible with PELCO-D, PELCO-P, PRIVATE-Code, VICON and KALATEL-312
protocol, etc., and is capable of being self-adaptive to these protocols without selecting protocol by
DIP switch settings. You can also configure the protocol via OSD menu.
Soft Baud Rate
29
IR Speed Dome User Manual
The baud rate of the speed dome can be configured by the menu without need of DIP switch
settings.
Time Task
A time task is a preconfigured action that can be performed automatically at a specific date and
time. The programmable actions include: preset 1-8, pattern 1-4, patrol 1-4, pan scan, tilt scan,
random scan, frame scan, panorama scan, day/night mode or none.
White Balance (WB)
This feature automatically processes the viewed image to retain color balance over a color
temperature range. The default setting for white balance is AUTO.
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)
When the Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) function is on, the dome is able to balance the brightest and
darkest sections of a scene to produce a picture that is better balanced in lighting and provides
more details.
Zone
A zone is a pan and tilt area defined by a left/right and up/down limit stops. The speed dome
provides eight zones, each with configurable label and limit stops. If the speed dome has dwelled at
a zone without receiving any command over 4 minutes, this feature will enable the speed dome to
perform panorama scanning within the zone.
