Crestron CPC-CAMI
Pan/Tilt Camera Head with Control Interface
Pan/Tilt Camera Head with
Control Interface: CPC-CAMI
Description
Functional Description
The CPC-CAMI is an integrated pan/tilt head and network control interface
belonging to the Crestron ProCam family of network camera control. The unit has
been designed to provide control of a remotely positioned video camera site. Control
is defined as the two-axis motion of the pan/tilt unit and the focus/zoom setting of a
camera lens.
The CPC-CAMI provides exclusive SpeedSmart™ technology to assure the fastest yet smoothest - camera response possible. Pulse width modulation insures high
speed resolution and the unit possesses a remarkable ability to repeat preset
positions. When connected to a Crestron control system, the unit’s “whisper-quiet”
movement of a camera/lens assembly is controlled by its own built-in network
control interface.
Jumper Boards
Four supplied jumper boards permit the support of any camera/lens assembly
requiring an input voltage in the range of +/-2.5 to +/- 12 VDC. Thus a single
CPC-CAMI with its four jumpers can control nearly any camera/lens in the industry.
Refer to the table below for exact voltage outputs for each jumper board.
NOTE: If no jumper board is connected to the CPC-CAMI, the lens outputs are
disconnected.

Pan/Tilt Camera Head with Control Interface
Crestron CPC-CAMI
Presets
In conjunction with the Crestron control system, the CPC-CAMI is capable of
“memorizing” pan/tilt positions and focus/zoom settings for a virtually unlimited
number of presets. Each preset stores a specific position and setting. Positional
feedback signals are essential to the implementation of presets; unless the lens
supports position mode. These analog signals, provided by the pan/tilt and lens,
indicate current pan/tilt position and focus/zoom setting.
Position/Rate Mode
Movement of the camera lens may occur in either position or rate mode. A jumper
board may be selected that best accommodates the mode parameters required by the
system. Refer to “Position/Rate Mode Definition” on page 13 for a more detailed
explanation of position and rate mode.
Physical Description
The CPC-CAMI, shown below, is housed in a black enclosure with two rotating
disks for the pan and tilt axes. A stop sensor is located on each side of the unit
having a rotating disk. Each disk has two adjustable locking screws. The disks also
feature heavy duty precision bearings for long life and minimal friction. The
interface box is affixed onto the sloping portion of the pan/tilt head. All electrical
connections are made to the interface box; refer to the silk-screened labels.

As of the date of manufacture, the unit has been tested and found to comply with
specifications for CE marking.
NOTE: These devices comply with part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to
the following two conditions: (1) these devices may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) these devices must accept any interference received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation.
Setup
Camera/Lens Mounting
The CPC-CAMI is not orientation sensitive; it is possible to mount the CPC-CAMI
on either rotating disk. However, realize that the height of the two sides to which the
disks are attached are not equal. Therefore, mounting the camera/lens assembly to
the longer side allows for a greater range of motion (assuming that the CPC-CAMI
is directly mounted to a large horizontal surface).
NOTE: The CPC-CAMI has an identifying mark labeled “FRONT” on the flat
mounting plate. The camera must be mounted facing toward the “FRONT” label in
order to function properly with the camera interface controller. A travel limit of 350
degrees protects the unit from windup of cables.
To ensure best performance of the CPC-CAMI, complete the following mounting
steps in the order presented.
1.
Assemble the lens and camera.
2.
Position the mounting holes of the camera/lens assembly on the flat
mounting plate. Verify that the lens is facing toward the “FRONT”
label on the plate.
3.
Use the supplied 1/4-20 x 1/2” hex head screw to loosely attach the
camera/lens assembly to the flat mounting plate. If necessary, use 1/4”
flat washers (two are supplied).
4.
Use a round object, such as a pen or pencil, to locate the fulcrum point
at which the camera/lens assembly most closely balances (refer to the
illustration on the next page). At this location tighten the mounting
screw.

Identity Code
Every equipment and user interface within the network requires a unique identity
code (NET ID). These codes are recognized by a two-digit hexadecimal number
from 03 to FE. The NET ID of each unit must match an ID CODE specified in the
SIMPL Windows program. The NET ID of each CPC-CAMI has been factory set to
34, but may be changed from the PC via VisionTools™ Pro-e (VT Pro-e) or
SIMPL™ Windows.
The method for changing the unit’s NET ID is identical regardless of the software
chosen. Attach the CPC-CAMI to the control system (verify that the software is
running) and complete the following steps to change the NET ID.
1.
Disconnect all network devices from the control system, except for the
one CPC-CAMI that needs to have its NET ID code changed.
2.
Select Tools | ViewPort to open the “Crestron Viewport” dialog box.
3.
Select Functions | Set Network ID. The software checks the baud rate
and then opens the “Set Network ID” dialog box.
4.
Notice the list of current network devices in the dialog box. Highlight
the CPC-CAMI.
5.
The NET ID of the CPC-CAMI (default is 34) appears in the box
below the list. Use the scroll arrow to assign another NET ID.
6.
When the newly assigned NET ID appears, select the Set ID button to
initiate the change.
7.
The software responds with a successful message to confirm the new
NET ID.

8.
To verify this procedure, select Diagnostics | Report Network
Devices. Confirm that the CPC-CAMI has a new NET ID code.
9.
Reconnect other network or modular devices that were disconnected in
step 1.
Preparation for Use
Refer to the hookup diagram below. Other than connecting the correct jumper board
first and making the power connection last, complete the connections in any order.
NOTE: Before making connections to the NET port, review the latest revision of
the Network Modular Cable Requirements (Doc. 5682) or the network
interconnection drawing (Doc. 5411). Most 4-conductor phone cables are wired in a
crisscross fashion and are not compatible with Crestron equipment. The wiring
document can be obtained from the Downloads page (CABLES and MANUALS
Libraries) of the Crestron website (www.crestron.com). Search for the
MODULAR.PDF or CRESNET.PDF files, respectively.
NOTE: To insure safe operation of the CPC-CAMI, all cables around the unit must
be properly “dressed” so that the cables do not strike surrounding surfaces or
equipment which would endanger safe system movement when in operation.

Maintenance
NOTE: Do not attempt to open the unit to make any adjustments or repairs. In the
event that an operating problem occurs, contact a member of Crestron’s technical
support team. Refer to “Further Inquiries” on page 17.
The CPC-CAMI has been designed to eliminate the need for periodic maintenance.
Lubrication for all moving parts is permanent. Motors, switches, and other moving
parts are rated in excess of normal expected operating life of the unit.
Programming
Position/Rate Mode Definition
In position mode, a voltage corresponding to a position of the lens (focus or zoom) is
fed to the lens interface and the lens moves the motors to the position that
corresponds to the input voltage. In rate mode, the voltage fed to the lens
corresponds to the rate and direction in which the motor moves. The result is smooth
lens movement.
Most lens types operate in rate mode. If position feedback is provided then
focus/zoom presets can be recalled. Without feedback, lens presets cannot be
achieved in rate mode. Some lenses can switch between rate and position mode; the
CPC-CAMI provides the appropriate connections to facilitate this. This type of lens
can achieve “virtual” presets without true feedback pots from the lens.
Programming the CPC-CAMI in SIMPL
SIMPL (Symbol Intensive Master Programming Language) is an easy-to-use
programming language that is completely integrated and compatible with all
Crestron system hardware. The objects that are used in SIMPL are called symbols.
SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop functionality in a familiar Windows®
environment.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron Electronics’ development environment for
programming Crestron control systems. It provides a well-designed graphical
environment with a number of workspaces (i.e., windows) in which a programmer
can select, configure, program, test, and monitor a Crestron control system.
Two sample SIMPL Windows programs are presented in this document for the two
separate lens control configurations. The first subsystem supports lenses that use
CPC-CAMI jumper boards A, B, or D. The second subsystem is specific for lenses
using CPC-CAMI jumper board C and have the separate rate/position drive.
NOTE: The following description assumes that the reader has some knowledge of
SIMPL Windows. If not, please refer to the extensive help information provided
with the software.
NOTE: The earliest version of SIMPL Windows did not have a “CPC-CAMI”
available from the Network Control Module folder in the Device Library of SIMPL
Windows’ Configuration Manager. When using an earlier version of SIMPL
Windows choose “CNCAMI” from the Device Library instead. However, realize
that the full functionality of the CPC-CAMI cannot be fully defined by the
“CNCAMI” symbol. Crestron recommends a SIMPL Windows and operating system
upgrade to fully implement CPC-CAMI functionality.

NOTE: There is no need to recreate this sample SIMPL Windows program. The
program is available from the Crestron ControlCD (version 6.2 and later) or the
Downloads page (EXAMPLES Library) of the Crestron website
(www.crestron.com). Search for CPC-CAMI.SMW.
Jumper Board A, B, or D
For most "standard" lenses using CPC-CAMI jumper board A, B or D, programming
is essentially the same. A sample SIMPL program is shown in block diagram form
below. SIMPL Windows contains a couple of macros within the Crestron Modules
folder, which can easily control pan/tilt, zoom/focus as well as store and recall
presets (if available on the lens).
CPC-CAMI SIMPL Program – Jumper Board A, B, or D
The CNCAMI RATE CONTROL module can be used universally for pan/tilt and
zoom/focus drive control. If the lens has optional preset follow pots, the CNCAMI
RATE CONTROL can be used in conjunction with the CAMI CONTROL module
to store and recall pan/tilt, zoom/focus presets.
14 • Pan/Tilt Camera Head with Control Interface: CPC-CAMI
Operations Guide - DOC. 5726A
Crestron CPC-CAMI
Pan/Tilt Camera Head with Control Interface
Jumper Board C
Servo drive lenses requiring jumper board C (such as the Canon KTS and Fujinon
MD, BMD series), do not have true feedback pots. Instead they have separate rate
and position control modes. If presets are not required, the CNCAMI RATE
CONTROL module can be used for direct drive of the rate lines on the CPC-CAMI
definition.
Since these lenses do not have true preset pots, programming has to be manipulated
so we can achieve "virtual" presets when driving the FOCUS_SET and ZOOM_SET
separately via ANALOG RAMPS and a second set of focus/zoom buttons. While in
positional mode (an internal feature of the lens), the lens can be forced to a location
while the value is stored. When that preset is recalled, the lens returns to the stored
voltage on its position lines, thus recalling a "virtual" preset.
CPC-CAMI SIMPL Program – Jumper Board C
How the Examples Work
For these examples, the SIMPL Windows program controls the CPC-CAMI through
the use of 12 analog signals.

Positional Feedback Signals
Positional feedback signals are generated by the networked CPC-CAMI and input to
the rest of the program. Four analog positional feedback signals, TILT_POS,
PAN_POS, FOC_POS, and ZOOM_POS, represent the current pan/tilt axis position
and focus/zoom lens setting. The CPC-CAMI converts positional potentiometer
wiper voltages to analog positional feedback signals. For example, an analog level of
0% on TILT_POS indicates that the pan/tilt is at its down limit (assuming the limit
stops are properly adjusted to allow full travel). An analog level of 100% on
TILT_POS indicates that the pan/tilt is at its up limit.
Drive Signals
Drive signals are generated from the SIMPL Windows program and output to the
CPC-CAMI. There are two types of drive signals, position and rate. Each type is
comprised of four analog programmed outputs for the CPC-CAMI.
Four position drive signals, TILT_SET, PAN_SET, FOC_SET, and ZOOM_SET,
are used to instruct the CPC-CAMI to drive the camera to a preset position. Anytime
the analog level on one of these drive signals change, the CPC-CAMI adjusts the
corresponding pan/tilt axis and focus/zoom lensposition until the feedback matches
the level at the programmed output.
Four rate drive signals, TILT_RATE, PAN_RATE, FOC_RATE, and ZOOMRATE, are used to drive the pan/tilt axis and focus/zoom lens position without the
use of presets. For the pan/tilt axis and focus/zoom lens position to remain
motionless, the analog level at each of these programmed outputs should be 50%. If
one of these levels rises higher than 50%, the corresponding pan/tilt axis or
focus/zoom lens position is adjusted in the positive direction until the level returns to
50%. If the level drops below 50%, the corresponding pan/tilt axis or focus/zoom
lens position is adjusted in the negative direction until the level returns to 50%.
Additional Symbol Features
There are a few lines of the CPC-CAMI symbol that are not implemented in the
sample provided. A brief description of each is provided below for those that wish to
use the features in programming a system.
IRIS
There are two signals requiring iris. One is analog and sets the IRIS analog out. The
second is a digital (join #1) switch that opens or closes iris control contacts. This
switch is similar to relay contacts and on most lenses it is used for AUTO/MANUAL
iris control (assuming the lens is capable). The outcome of an open or closed contact
is lens dependent. For example, when contacts are open, a lens went into
IRIS_AUTO mode. When the contacts closed, the lens went into IRIS_MANUAL
mode. This switch can be used as a general purpose solid-state relay single-pole
single-throw. Its use is purely subjective.
MODE SET
This feature is used for debugging and applies only to Canon KTS or Fujinon MD,
BMD series type lenses which have input to switch between rate/position mode. It
does not affect any other lenses. This signal is a digital (join #3) switch that affects
IRIS/FOCUS/ZOOM.
SPEED LIMIT
This feature permits the scaling of the pan/tilt speed. Speed limit does not affect lens
action.
