Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
These systems can be programmed with up to
60 sequences which can be run independently of each
other, in either a forward or reverse direction. Any of
the sequences can utilize the SalvoSwitching capability
where any number of system monitors may be selected
to switch as a group. Using the optional LTC 8059/00
Master Control Software (MCS) for Windows® package
or the LTC 8850/00 Bosch Graphical User Interface
(GUI) with Allegiant Server, sequences can be made
to activate and deactivate automatically, based upon
the time of day and the day of week.
Using the LTC 8100, LTC 8200, or LTC 8300 Series
integral signal distribution ports, connections to
on-site receiver/drivers are easily made. On-site
receiver/drivers provide operator control of pan, tilt,
zoom, multiple pre-positions, four auxiliaries, autopan,
and random scan. The series also supports variable
speed operation and full programming functions of
AutoDome Series dome cameras.
LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Description
With its built-in alarm interface capability, an external
contact closure or logic level can be used to
automatically display any camera. Any monitor or
group of monitors can be set to display cameras under
alarm conditions. The base system contains three
built-in alarm response modes: basic, auto-build, and
sequence and display. In addition to these three
modes, the PC based software packages offer
VersAlarm - a new dimension in alarm handling.
VersAlarm has the ability to combine any or all three
standard modes. Alarm video may be selected to
reset either manually or automatically. In addition, a
16 character alarm title can be selected to appear
instead of the camera title during alarm conditions.
System operation and programming is accomplished
using a full-function, ergonomically designed keyboard.
Multiple keyboards may be used in the system. Built-in
operator priority levels and the ability to restrict
certain operators from controlling designated functions
provide maximum flexibility.
The LTC 8100, LTC 8200, and LTC 8300 Series
includes a black outlined 48 character on-screen
display for time-date, camera number, camera ID
(16 characters), and monitor (12 characters) or status
information. When programming camera ID and
monitor titles, 235 different characters are available.
Enhanced programming and switching features can be
obtained by utilizing a standard Windows equipped
PC and the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS for Windows
package or LTC 8850/00 GUI software. A userfriendly spreadsheet format provides the ability to
enter camera titles, enter operator names, schedule
64 timed events, change system parameters, program
camera sequences, install lockouts, and access the
advanced VersAlarm alarm handling screens with
speed and efficiency. The programmed information
may then be transferred into the Allegiant system,
stored on disk, or printed from a PC.
The LTC 8850/00 Bosch GUI software is designed
around an intuitive graphic-based interface. The GUI
provides high performance programming, control and
monitoring of all system functions by using on-screen
icons to reflect real time status of the devices
controlled by the system.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
EN | 9
The LTC 8850/00 GUI software also provides the
ability to monitor system status events. System alarms,
switching functions, sequence events, keyboard actions,
and video loss information can be viewed in real time
on the PC screen and, if desired, logged to the
PC hard drive.
The LTC 8850/00 GUI software can also be used
to enable a special on-screen icon for identifying
controllable cameras.
The CPU inside these matrix switchers supports
powerful macro capabilities. The macros can be
activated using system keyboards, system time event
functions, alarm activations, and via special function
icons in the LTC 8850/00 GUI software.
The LTC 8100, LTC 8200, or LTC 8300 Series can
serve as the master switcher in a SatelliteSwitch
configuration. This innovative SatelliteSwitch feature
enables a single LTC 8100, LTC 8200, or LTC 8300
Series system to communicate with remotely located
"Satellite" systems. Any Allegiant system model can
serve as a remote Satellite switcher. This powerful
feature permits the design of a distributed matrix video
switching system with control at one central location
and individual control at the local sites. The main
control site can view/control local cameras plus
cameras located at any of the remotely distributed
Satellite sites. The Satellite sites can view/control only
cameras associated with their own site. When these
models are used in this type of configuration, the main
system can access up to 256 cameras located anywhere
in the system.

on the rear. Two 16-conductor ribbon cables are included
for interfacing the patch panel to the video looping
connectors on the LTC 8300 or LTC 8200 Series
equipment bay (only one ribbon cable is used for the
LTC 8200). The patch panel is one standard EIA 19-inch
rack unit high, and one unit wide.

Internal Selections
The LTC 8100, LTC 8200, and LTC 8300 Series
incorporate printed circuit boar/ds (PCB) that contain
user-selectable DIP switches. If necessary, follow the
instructions in the COVER REMOVAL Section below to
access the DIP switches. Removal of the cover should
only be performed by qualified service personnel.
The LTC 8x00 Series circuit board contains the video
input termination switches S0801, S0802, S0803, and
S0804 (S0803 and S0804 are only present on the
LTC 8300 Series). The video termination switches on the
Allegiant must be set to the correct position prior to
installation. Read the TERMINATION PRACTICES Section
prior to installing the system to determine if it is
necessary to change the video module termination
switches.
The circuit board contains two 8-position DIP switches
for system configuration options, and two lithium
batteries. The DIP switches can be used to modify certain
system operating conditions. Review the FACTORY
DEFAULT SETTINGS Section to determine if it is
necessary to change the DIP switches from the factory
default positions.
The circuit board’s lithium batteries require attention only
when it is necessary to change them. These batteries
enable the RAM memory to retain its contents for up to
a year without power. Since the batteries are not used
while the AC power is on, several years of service should
be expected before it becomes necessary to change them.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
Enclosure Mounting
The LTC 8300 is supplied with the rack-mounting
brackets attached. The LTC 8200 and LTC 8100 are
shipped with the rack-mounting brackets unattached.
On these systems, the brackets must be attached prior
to being installed into a rack. Use the supplied offset
screwdriver to remove the two (2) star head screws
located on each side near the front of the unit. Then
attach the supplied rack mounting brackets to the unit.
If the LTC 8300 Series are not going to be rack-mounted,
the enclosure’s mounting brackets can be removed. The
cover of the unit must be removed before access to the
mounting brackets is possible.

Termination Practices
Video from every camera should be terminated with a
75Ω resistance. Each video line should be terminated
exactly once. If video from a camera is going to several
devices, only the last device on the video line should be
terminated.
6.4.1 Video Terminations
The main circuit board has DIP switches to select the
termination of each video line. To terminate an input line,
ensure that the appropriate DIP switch on the video
module is ON (Factory Default Setting). If nonterminated operation is required for looping purposes,
turn the switch OFF. See the TABLE below to determine
the DIP switch numbers that correspond to video input.

Video Input Termination Switches
If looping video inputs are desired, the LTC 8200 and the
LTC 8300 Series require an optional LTC 8808/00 patch
panel (for the LTC 8100 Series, the looping BNCs are
included on the unit). A single LTC 8808/00 provides
looping capability for all 16 (LTC 8200) or 32 (LTC 8300)
video inputs. If necessary, refer to the Section on
LOOPING VIDEO CONNECTIONS below.
Just like camera inputs, monitor outputs on the Allegiant
system are designed to be terminated. Each monitor
output expects to be connected to a 75Ω load. This is the
load typically provided by a monitor. If a monitor output
line is looped through several monitors or other
equipment, ensure that only the last unit on the line is
terminated.
LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Installation Procedure
6.5
Looping Video Connections
The Allegiant Series has outputs available for video
input looping connections. Looping connections for
LTC 8200 and LTC 8300 require the optional
LTC 8808/00 Video Interconnect (patch) Panel. The
patch panel provides 32 BNCs for video connections.
Patch panels are connected to the rear of the main bay
via supplied ribbon cables. Each cable can carry video
for up to 16 cameras. For LTC 8300 Series systems,
2 cables can be attached to the patch panel to support
up to 32 cameras. Each ribbon cable should be attached
to the appropriate VIDEO connector on the rear of the
main bay.

Keyboard Hookup
Connect a maximum of 4 (LTC 8300 or LTC 8200
Series) or 2 (LTC 8100 Series) system keyboards to
any of the keyboard ports (modular phone type jacks)
provided on the rear of the main bay. Be sure to
connect a keyboard to at least port #1.
NOTE: The LTC 8555 Series RS-232 type keyboards
are not connected to the standard keyboard ports.
The keyboards connect to the Console port, or to a
LTC 8712 Series Port Expander. Note that when
LTC 8555 RS-232 type keyboards are connected to the
system, the corresponding standard keyboard ports
are automatically disabled.
Each keyboard is supplied with a 3 m (10 ft) cable for
local hookups. Allegiant systems can provide power
to keyboards up to 30 m (100 ft) away via the optional
LTC 8558/00 hookup cable. For distances of up to
1.5 km (5000 ft), the optional LTC 8557 Series hookup
kit is required. This product is supplied with a remote
power pack, and requires user-supplied shielded twisted
pair (Belden 9841 or equivalent) for communication.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
6.7
EN | 18
Biphase Control Code Output
Connections
Allegiant systems provide separate outputs (16 for
LTC 8300, 12 for LTC 8200, 8 for LTC 8100 Series) for
driving remote receiver/drivers, switcher/followers, and
satellite systems. Either star or daisy chain wiring
configurations may be used.
Connect shielded twisted pair cable between the camera
site receiver/driver locations (or other accessory device)
and any of the outputs provided on the Allegiant’s rear
panel. Use the straight slot side of the supplied offset
screwdriver to tighten the terminal block screws.
Maximum transmission distance is 1.5 km (5000 ft) using
1 mm2 (18 AWG) shielded twisted pair (Belden 8760 or
equivalent). Contact removable screw terminal blocks are
provided with up to 4 separate connection groups per
block. Each group provides three connections; +, –, and S
(Shield). Do not mix connections between groups, i.e.
connecting one wire of the cable to the + of one group and
another wire of the same cable to the – of another group.
Each output is rated to handle up to 8 receiver/drivers, as
in a daisy chain configuration, to a maximum of 1.5 km
(5000 ft). Select and maintain a wire color convention to
avoid confusion at the various camera sites.
Example: White to +, Black to –, and Shield to S.
The CODE OUT LED located on the Allegiant front
panel will flash when the joystick, a lens control, or a
video switching action is activated. The CODE OUT
LED also flashes occasionally when system status
information is being generated by the system.
6.8
External Alarm Connections
The LTC 8100, LTC 8200, and LTC 8300 Series contain
integral alarm input and output connections. These alarm
inputs provide automatic display of video under alarm
conditions. The units accept up to 32 (LTC 8300),
16 (LTC 8200), 8 (LTC 8100) contact closures or logic
level inputs from remote sensing devices (door contacts,
PIRs, etc.). The alarm inputs are designed to generate
alarm conditions upon closure of the external contacts
(normally open contacts). The units also provide
6 (LTC 8300), 5 (LTC 8200), or 2 (LTC 8100) relay
closure outputs upon alarm conditions.
Alarm input connections are made to 12 contact
removable screw terminal blocks located on the rear panel.
Each terminal block provides 8 alarm input connections.
LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Installation Procedure
Connect any 2-conductor shielded wire (the shield and
ground wire are both connected to the connector pins
labeled G) between the alarming device (contact closure
or logic level) and the appropriate Allegiant input. Use
the straight slot side of the supplied offset screwdriver to
tighten the terminal block screws. The alarm input
numbers are marked on the removable connector block.
Note that every two alarm inputs share a common
ground connection. The total wire loop resistance
should not exceed 1,000Ω. Input #1 corresponds to
camera #1 in the Factory Default Settings, but this
relationship can be changed via programming with the
optional LTC 8059/00 MCS for Windows package or
LTC 8850/00 GUI software package.
Allegiant units also provide isolated alarm relay outputs.
An alarm output is typically used to activate the alarm
input of a security DVR/VCR or other alerting device. A
VCR is normally programmed to change recording
speeds from a slower time lapse mode to a faster real
time mode upon alarm activation. Operation of the relay
outputs depends on the system configuration for
responding to alarm events. The alarm output relays
activate accordingly under the following conditions:
1. Relay 1 activates if the system is set to use the
Basic alarm response mode, and an alarm occurs
on any system monitor. Relay 1 deactivates after
all alarms have been removed from the inputs.
Relay 1 also deactivates if the system (monitor or
alarm(s)) is disarmed by an operator via the
keyboard. Pressing Acknowledge on the system
keyboard does not deactivate Relay 1 since the
alarm video follows the contact applied to the unit
in this alarm response mode. Other relays are
not used in this mode.
2. Relay 1 activates if the base system is set to use
the Sequence & Display alarm response mode
and an alarm occurs on any system monitor.
Relay 1 deactivates after all alarm videos have
been acknowledged (by pressing the
Acknowledge key) via system operator(s) from
all system monitors. Relay 1 also deactivates if
the system is disarmed (either the monitor or
the alarm(s)) by an operator via the keyboard.
Removal of the alarm input does not deactivate
Relay 1 since the alarm video(s) are not
dependent on duration of the contact applied to
the unit in this alarm response mode. Other relays
are not used in this mode.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
EN | 19
3. If the base system is set to use the Autobuild
alarm response mode, and an alarm occurs on
system monitors, the relay corresponding to the
monitor number activates for the duration that the
corresponding alarm input is applied to the unit.
The relay deactivates if the monitor associated
with the relay or if the alarm(s) being displayed on
the monitor is disarmed by an operator via the
keyboard. Pressing Acknowledge on the system
keyboard does not deactivate the relays since the
alarm video follows the contact applied to the unit
in this alarm response mode.
4. If the VersAlarm Group table screen in the
PC- based LTC 8059/00 MCS for Windows
package or the LTC 8850/00 GUI software
contains an alarm group that includes monitors,
and the Monitor option has been selected in the
Relay Action column, the corresponding relay
activates for the duration the alarm video remains
on the monitor. The relay deactivates if the
associated monitor (or the alarm(s) being
displayed on the monitor) is disarmed by an
operator via the keyboard. Pressing Acknowledge
on the system keyboard does not deactivate the
relay unless this feature has been selected for the
associated alarm group. If the Monitor option has
been set to 1 in the Group table, only Relay 1
activates when monitors in that alarm group
become alarmed.
Typically, any 2-conductor wire can be used between the
rear panel terminal block containing the relay outputs,
and the VCR alarm input. Use the straight slot side of the
supplied offset screwdriver to tighten the terminal block
screws. If another external device is to be controlled, do
not exceed the relay ratings of 1 A, 40 VAC/DC.

Satellite Configuration Installations
Due to many variables, only general guidelines will be
covered for installing satellite systems. Refer to the
APPENDICES of this manual and either the
LTC 8059/00 MCS for Windows or LTC 8850/00 GUI

Figure 5 Satellite Concept Configuration
6.9.1 Satellite Site Trunk Line Monitor Outputs
At each of the remote satellite sites, a desired number of
monitor outputs from the switcher must be assigned as
trunk lines. The number of trunk lines can range from
1 to the maximum number of monitor outputs provided
by the switcher. Note that the number of trunk lines
coming from a satellite site determines the maximum
number of cameras from that site that may be viewed
simultaneously at the main site. If operators will be
stationed at the satellite site, they should be prevented
from accessing the monitor outputs designated as trunk
lines. This can be accomplished via the Monitor
Lockout tables in either the LTC 8059/00 MCS for
Windows or the LTC 8850/00 GUI software (see below).
6.9.2 Main Site Trunk Line Video Inputs
At the main site, video trunk line connections coming
from each of the remote site(s) should be connected (and
properly terminated) using an available video input at
the main bay. There are no programming restrictions
concerning their connections, but a sense of order can
be maintained if a group of video inputs are used at the
upper end of the system’s designed capacity. This allows
the main system to be more easily expanded in the
future with additional local cameras or trunk lines. As
an example, assume that there are a total of 8 trunk lines
coming from all satellite sites which will be connected to
a main site system designed for 32 inputs. Inputs 25 to 32
can be reserved for the trunk lines, leaving inputs 1 to 24
for local camera connections. If there will be no local
camera inputs, the trunk lines can start at the first video
input.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
EN | 20
6.9.3 Control Data Lines in Satellite Systems
Each satellite site must be provided with an Allegiant
biphase control data line coming from the Signal
Distribution located at the main site. The Signal
Distribution unit is an integral part of the LTC 8100,
LTC 8200, and LTC 8300 Series. This data line carries
all pan/tilt/zoom control commands, in addition to the
switching commands generated by the main site switcher.
The control data line should be connected to an
LTC 8780 Series Data Converter unit, which provides
address decoding functions for the satellite site. An
LTC 8780 Series is required at each satellite site, and
must be given a unique site address number.
If operators stationed at the satellite site are permitted to
control pan/tilt/zoom-equipped cameras, an LTC 8569
Series Code Merger unit must be installed at the satellite
site. The Code Merger combines code generated by the
main site and the satellite sites so both sites have control
over pan/tilt/zoom-equipped cameras at the satellite site.
The LTC 8780 Series can then be connected to one of the
data outputs of the LTC 8569 Series unit.
6.9.4 Satellite Site Programming Requirements
The optional LTC 8059/00 MCS for Windows or the
optional LTC 8850/00 GUI software is required to
properly program a satellite system.
Programming the satellite sites is usually limited to
designating their logical camera numbers to appropriate
values via the Camera ID table of the MCS or GUI
software.
Note that no duplicate camera numbers are permitted
anywhere in the system. Allegiant logical camera
designations can be renumbered to any four-digit number
on the LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series, LTC 8600
Series, LTC 8800 Series, or LTC 8900 Series systems, and
any three-digit number on LTC 8500 systems.
Few other restrictions exist. These camera numbers are
the numbers entered at both the satellite and the main
site keyboards when camera selections are made. On any
pan/tilt/zoom-equipped camera, this logical number must
also be entered as the receiver/driver’s site address
number.
EN | 21
LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Installation Procedure
To maintain a sense of order, it is preferable to program a
satellite for a range of camera numbers. For example, in a
three Allegiant type satellite system, the first satellite can
be programmed for camera numbers 1 to 50. Satellite
two can be programmed for camera numbers 101 to 131,
and satellite three can use numbers 201 to 225.
If necessary, the MCS or GUI software Keyboard-toMonitor Lockout table can be programmed in the
satellite switcher to prevent any local operators from
inadvertently accessing the satellite’s monitor outputs
being used as trunk lines.
If operators will be stationed at the satellite site, camera
titles should be entered into the switcher. If desired, these
titles can be selected (explained below) to appear at the
main site.
The only other requirement is to ensure that the Console
ports of all Allegiant type satellites have the handshake
option disabled (CTS = off). This is done via keyboard
User Function 30 (see Section 13, KEYBOARD USER
FUNCTIONS), the MCS or GUI software’s ParametersSystem screen.
6.9.5 Main Site Programming Requirements
At the main site, the Camera ID table must be
programmed to ensure proper satellite operation. It is
easiest to start with the trunk line inputs. For each trunk
line, the satellite’s monitor output number and its bay
address must be entered (same number as the satellite’s
LTC 8780 address).
Camera numbers should be programmed next. No
duplicate camera numbers are allowed anywhere in the
entire system. Designate remote cameras (located at
satellite sites) using numbers above those at the main
bay’s physical video inputs (9+ on LTC 8100 Series,
17+ on LTC 8200 Series, 33+ on LTC 8300 Series,
65+ on LTC 8500, 129+ on LTC 8600, 257+ on
LTC 8800 Series, 4097+ on LTC 8900 Series). Enter the
desired camera number, (the satellite bay that it is
actually connected to), and select if either a local title will
be used, or if the remotely generated title will be used.
For satellite camera entries, only those numbers
representing actual cameras need to be entered. For
example, all 16 cameras associated with an LTC 8200
switcher do not need to be entered if only 5 cameras are
actually connected to the switcher. If desired, a few extra
camera numbers may be included at this time for future
expansion. If a local title is specified, the camera’s title
can also be entered at this time. Designate any local
camera numbers appropriately, and enter their
corresponding titles.
NOTE: Either a local camera, or a remote camera
programmed with a local title, will need to be selected to
view certain on-screen prompts or data during
programming of the main site via a system keyboard.
Once the system is programmed and configured, any
unused monitor outputs located at the main site should
be selected to display a local camera via the system
keyboard. This prevents unused monitor outputs from
using up trunk lines which may result in some confusing
operational responses.

6.9.6 Alarm Inputs in Satellite Systems
Any alarm inputs to the main site, which have been
programmed to activate cameras located at satellites, will
operate normally except when limited by the number of
trunk lines available. The software automatically
determines trunk usage depending on the priority level of
operators currently viewing satellite cameras. Alarm
inputs applied at a satellite site will NOT activate alarm
video at the main site. If the application requires alarms
located at a satellite to activate video at the main site, the
remote alarms must be brought back to the main site. If
necessary, the main site’s LTC 8540/00 Alarm Interface
unit can be remotely located via an RS-232 link. Since
the Alarm Interface capability is an integral part of the
LTC 8100, LTC 8200, and LTC 8300 Series, this is not
possible if an LTC 8100, LTC 8200, or LTC 8300 Series
system is being used as the main site system. If more than
one satellite site contains alarms, multiple LTC 8540/00
Alarm Interfaces can be remotely located. The number of
alarm interfaces which can be remoted is limited only by
the capacity of the main site system to support this
capability.

8.2.1
System Status Display
If this display is enabled (factory default), it allows the
Allegiant system to dynamically inform the user of system
status. The 12-column display is divided into smaller
message columns (see Figure above), in which special
characters report the following:
8.2.3
Location 4 - Monitor Arm Status Indication
In the MONITOR ARMED location, the characters SM
or DM will appear if the monitor is armed for alarm. SM
means that the monitor is a step or sequence monitor,
and will automatically step through multiple alarm
videos. DM indicates that the monitor is a display or
review monitor, which will collect alarm videos from
one or more step monitors.
When an alarm occurs, the alarmed camera’s video will
replace the current display of the monitor. If the monitor
is not armed, this location is blank.
8.2.4
Location 5 - Camera Arm Status Indication
In the CAMERA ARMED location characters CA are
displayed if the camera being viewed is armed for alarm
on that monitor. If the alarm signal associated with this
camera becomes active, the camera will be displayed on
the appropriate armed monitors.
8.2.5
Location 6 - Error Indication
This location displays ERR when a user error occurs.
The specific error number appears in locations 7 and 8,
and also in the Camera Number Display field on the
keyboard. The display will return to normal after a few
seconds, or if the user presses [Enter] on the keyboard.
Location 6 is also used to indicate the sequencing
direction when alarms occur. Possible character
combinations are:
•
Whether the switcher is running or stopped.
•
The switcher’s direction.
1. ^R: the alarms are sequencing in a forward
direction.
•
Whether a monitor or remote camera is locked.
2.
•
The alarm status of the camera and monitor.
8.2.2
Locations 1, 2, and 3 - Alarm Indication
When the monitor overlay is in Status Display mode,
locations 1 through 3 indicate whether a camera on the
monitor is in alarm. If the on-screen camera is currently
in alarm, an ALM message in a box will flash at this
location. A in a box means that a camera other
than the on-screen camera is in alarm. If no cameras are
currently in alarm on this monitor, these spaces are
blank. When a monitor has cameras in alarm, press
NEXT, RUN, or PREVIOUS on the keyboard to move
through the alarm sequencer rather than the regular
camera sequencer. The alarm switcher status will be
displayed in location 6 using symbols described.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
RV:
the alarms are sequencing in a reverse
direction.
3. ^S: the alarm sequencing has stopped, but if
started again would sequence in a forward
direction.
4.
SV: the alarm sequencing has stopped, but if
started again would sequence in a reverse
direction.
Location 6 can also be used to display a symbol
indicating pan/tilt/zoom-equipped cameras. Using the
optional LTC 8850/00 GUI software, controllable
cameras can be individually configured to display a
symbol in location 6 whenever they are viewed on a
system monitor.

8.2.6
Location 7 - Remote Lock Indication
This location will display characters RL to indicate that
control over the movements of the camera being viewed
have been locked by a user. Control over this camera is
now possible only by the user who locked the camera, or
has higher priority. If the camera is not locked, the icon is
not displayed. If a user error has occurred, this location
will temporarily hold part of the error number.
8.2.10 Location 12 - Sequence Status Indication
This location indicates the status of the sequence active in
the monitor. Possible character combinations are:
8.2.7
Location 8 - Monitor Lock Indication
This location will display characters ML to indicate that
the monitor has been locked by a user. The camera
currently being viewed cannot be changed except by the
user who locked the monitor, or has higher priority. If the
monitor is not locked, the icon will not be displayed. If a
user error has occurred, this location will temporarily
hold part of the error number.
3. ^S: the sequence is stopped, but if started again
would sequence in a forward direction.
8.2.8
Location 9 - Sequence Type Indication
This location displays the type of sequence currently
loaded on the monitor. An absolute sequence is
indicated by the characters AS, meaning that monitors
programmed in the sequence program refer to the exact
monitor(s) where the sequence may be run. Sequences
created via the system keyboards are always of this type,
so absolute sequences are the only type possible in a base
system. Relative sequences are designated by the
characters RS in this location. These sequences will run
on any monitor or group of monitors, and can only be
programmed via the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS for
Windows or the LTC 8850/00 GUI software on a PC.
8.2.9
Locations 10 and 11 - Sequence Number
The sequence number currently active for the monitor is
displayed here. This is a number between 1 and 60, or 00
to indicate that no sequence is loaded.
1. ^R: the current sequence is sequencing in a
forward direction.
2.
4.
8.3
RV:
the current sequence is sequencing in a
reverse direction.
SV:
the sequence is stopped, but if started again
would sequence in a reverse direction.
Monitor Message
The monitor message is a stationary 12-character title
which may be placed on a monitor instead of the
System Status display. Specific monitor messages can
be programmed from either the keyboard
(see User Function 17 in Section 13) or the optional
LTC 8059 MCS package or the LTC 8850/00 GUI
software.
8.4
Broadcast Message
A message can be sent by the operator of the PC using
the optional LTC 8059 MCS package or the
LTC 8850/00 GUI software to all the monitors in the
system. This message may be up to 24 characters, and
can be used to notify all users at all monitor locations of
important information. The message, along with its
beginning and ending time and date, is also printed on
the logging printer (if one is connected), as well as any
user acknowledgment. The broadcast duration may be set
for 1 to 60 seconds. The message is displayed on a line
by itself.
8.5
Program Prompts
During entry of sequence programming via the keyboard,
the Allegiant system prompts the user on the monitor his
keyboard is currently controlling. The display will return
to its previous form when the user leaves the
programming mode.

8.6
Camera Number
The left-most display on the top line shows the systemgenerated camera number is always displayed. This
unique number identifies this camera when using the
keyboard for video call ups. In base systems, this number
is the same as the numbered BNC connector that the
camera is plugged into on the rear of the bay (physical
camera number). However, the optional MCS for
Windows or the optional GUI software package can be
used to change this number to any unique number
between 1 and 9999.
8.7
Camera Title
The camera identification display, which is the first
16 characters of the lower line, are used to label each
camera. Each camera has its own title, displayed
whenever that camera is called up for viewing. The 235
possible characters can be entered from the keyboard via
user function, or from PC keyboard via the optional
MCS for Windows or optional GUI software.
8.8
Video Loss Detection
The Allegiant system is capable of detecting loss of video.
When the unit detects that an input has lost video, a
VIDEO NOT PRESENT message is displayed on the
respective monitor.
NOTE: It may take up to five seconds for the unit to
display the video loss message when a video source is
disconnected.
9.0
FACTORY DEFAULT
SETTINGS
As the Allegiant system is shipped from the factory,
certain features are set to a default configuration.
Some features can be selected by the installer at the
time of system installation/configuration. The default
configuration represents the simplest mode of operation.
Default settings are detailed in this section.

camera loses video or an unused channel is selected. The
presence of the raster generator allows on-screen text to
remain visible and includes a message notifying the user
of the video loss condition.

Switch 1 to 3 of S0202
These switch functions are reserved and should be left
OFF.
Switch 4 of S0202
If switch 4 is ON (usually at system installation), the
Printer port on the rear panel is configured as an
auxiliary Console port. The Printer port has the same
pin-out as the normal Console port, so the Console cable
supplied with the LTC 8059/00 MCS for Windows or
LTC 8850/00 GUI software may be used to interface
with the Printer port when switch 4 is ON.

LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Factory Default Settings
NOTE: This feature can also be implemented via the
PRT2CON CCL command using an external PC, dumb
terminal, or other computing device.
Communication parameters (baud & handshake) for the
Printer port can be set via Keyboard User Function 31
(covered later in this manual), with the optional
LTC 8059/00 MCS for Windows, or the LTC 8850/00
GUI software.
Switch 5 of S0202
Switch 5 controls the system security modes. When this
switch is ON (factory default), the system login features
can be controlled using Keyboard User Function 27 and
User Function 28 (see Section 13, KEYBOARD USER
FUNCTIONS). Users with priority 1 can access User
Function 27 to enable or disable the system keyboard
login feature. When enabled, the system keyboards
require each user to logon and logoff the system. All
users are required to enter a user number and the correct
password before system interaction is permitted.
Users with priority 1 can also access User Function 28 to
enable or disable the Console port login feature. When
enabled, any external PC or other computing device will
be required to logon and logoff the system, and enter a
user number and correct password. If this switch is OFF
(usually at time of system installation) or if features are
disabled via User Function 27 and 28, the system
keyboards and the Console port are always online with
the system.
Switch 6 of S0202
This switch is reserved, and should be left off.
Switch 7 of S0202
Switch 7 controls the system keyboard polling mode.
When switch 7 is ON (factory default), the CPU
communicates with system keyboards via a 6 poll byte
protocol. This format provides variable speed pan/tilt
control for AutoDome-equipped camera sites.
NOTE: The variable speed mode is not compatible with
the pre-1996 LTC 8561 Receiver/Drivers without using a
LTC 8785 Series Code Converter unit.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
Dip switch 7 can be turned off (usually at system
installation) to allow operation with the older fixed
speed only type keyboards that use a 4 poll byte
protocol. In this mode, the system can communicate with
the older LTC 8561 Series of Receiver/Drivers, without
using the LTC 8785 Code Converter unit. Note that fixed
speed keyboard mode allows only the first 63 auxiliary
and pre-position functions to be accessed. This is not an
issue on older receiver/driver versions, but may pose a
problem if the system must be expected to access all
functions available in the AutoDome Series of
pan/tilt/zoom dome cameras.
Switch 8 of S0202
Switch 8 controls the Protocol Settings of the Console
and Printer external RS-232 ports.
If the switch is OFF, the system will use the Factory
Default Settings for the RS-232 data communication
protocols listed below.
With switch 8 ON, any RS-232 port protocols changed
using keyboard User Function 30 (covered later in this
manual), the optional LTC 8059 MCS, or the optional
LTC 8850/00 GUI software are active.
Users with priority level 1 can also use Keyboard User
Function 29 to reset any changed protocols back to the
default settings (see below).
Switch 8 also controls the activation of a boot screen
program previously downloaded into CPU memory. This
custom program is entered via the optional LTC 8059
MCS, or the optional LTC 8850/00 GUI software, to
provide special system functions/features. If the Switch is
OFF, any existing boot screen will not be active.

10.0 USER INFORMATION
There are eight levels of user priority in the system. Each
of the 32 users in the Allegiant system has a default
priority level assigned. User levels determine access to
system functions and provide prioritization of user control
of monitors and pan/tilt/zoom-equipped camera sites.
Users with higher priority (highest = 1) can regain control
over monitors or pan/tilt/zoom cameras locked by
another user.

above TABLE shows the default values set. Note that in
base systems where the login feature has not been
selected, user number is automatically assigned to a
specific keyboard port. This essentially sets the keyboard
as the priority determinator. Also shown in the TABLE
are factory default user passwords. Once a user is logged
on to the system, the password can be changed via
keyboard User Function 10. Refer to

11.0 ALARM INFORMATION
Automatically switching video in response to an external
signal (usually a contact closure) is necessary in any video
switching system. The Allegiant system permits users with
priority level 1 to select 1 of 3 predefined alarm response
modes (via keyboard User Function 19). A description of
the three modes appear below. Pictorial examples of
alarm responses are shown on the following pages.
The system can also be programmed with a variety of
alarm response characteristics using the flexible
VersAlarm system. See the LTC 8059/00 MCS for
Windows or the LTC 8850/00 GUI software manual
for details.
11.1
Basic Alarm Response Mode
In BASIC alarm response mode, any/all monitors can be
selected as alarm display monitors. Each alarm can then
be armed to display its camera(s) on any set of armed
monitors. Multiple alarms, on the same monitor,
sequence at a 1 second rate. Monitors and alarms can be
armed and disarmed individually as required. Alarmed
video automatically clears when the alarm input signal is
reset.
11.2
Auto-Build Alarm Response Mode
This mode uses a set of (or all) monitors as alarm display
monitors. Each triggered alarm displays its alarm video
on a different monitor, starting with the lowest numbered
armed monitor. If all armed monitors are already
displaying alarm video, subsequent alarms will build on
the existing alarmed monitors. Each monitor sequences
through its alarm videos at a 1 second rate. Monitors and
alarms can be armed and disarmed individually, as
required. Alarmed video automatically clears when the
alarm input signal is reset.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
11.3
EN | 31
Sequence & Display
Alarm Response Mode
This mode designates two monitors as alarm response
monitors. Monitor #1 is the DISPLAY monitor (also
called a REVIEW monitor) and monitor #2 is the
SEQUENCE (or STEP) monitor. The first alarm will
appear on both monitors; additional alarms will begin to
sequence at a 1 second rate on the SEQUENCE
monitor. The DISPLAY monitor holds the first alarmed
camera video until manually acknowledged via the
keyboard. When the first video is cleared from the
DISPLAY monitor, the next alarmed video (next is the
camera that alarmed second) is displayed until cleared.
Operation continues in this manner. Alarms can be
armed and disarmed individually, as required. All alarms
must be manually cleared; the presence of alarm video is
not dependent upon the duration of the alarm input
signal to the system.
11.4
Alarm Activated Pre-Position
Alarm activated pre-position enables a pan/tilt/zoomequipped camera to automatically position itself to a
preprogrammed scene as a result of an alarm signal.
This capability exists in each of the three alarm response
modes. The pan/tilt and zoom on the camera must have
the necessary options for pre-position control. The system
default is to activate pre-position #16 of the system
camera receiving an alarm. Use the optional MCS for
Windows package or the LTC 8850/00 GUI software, to
configure the response to alarms as required by the user.

LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Keyboard Operation
12.0 KEYBOARD OPERATION
12.1
General
Primary operation of an Allegiant switcher is controlled
via system keyboard. The 2 types of keyboards currently
available are:
• Conventional LTC 8555 Series (incorporates
LEDs and pushbuttons)
•
IntuiKey model (uses dynamic LCD menu
screens)
General operation steps for both keyboard models
follows. Refer to the individual instruction manuals
supplied with the keyboard for additional information.
As the system is supplied from the factory, various userselectable features have been set to a default state. See
Section 9, FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS for feature
descriptions. Since these features are user selectable and
can have a significant effect on the operation of the
system, it is important to take note of any changes that
may be in effect.
12.2
System Commands
12.2.1 Keyboard Login Procedure
Keyboard modes:
• Via Factory Default Settings, a keyboard is
ready for use as soon as power is applied to the
system.
•
System operator must logon to a keyboard to
access the system. When a system is configured
to use the keyboard logon, operators must be
pre-assigned a user number and password. Up
to 32 user numbers are available, each having
default priority level. User specific priority levels
can only be changed via the optional PC-based
MCS program. Refer to the MCS manual for
complete details.
If the logon feature is enabled and an operator is not
logged in, LED keyboards show flashing dashes in their
display. IntuiKey keyboards prompt for entry of a user
number when attempting to enter the main Allegiant
softscreen menu.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
EN | 34
Enter your assigned user number via the numeric keypad
and press [Enter]. When prompted, enter the password.
Invalid passwords cause the keyboard to revert to its
initial state. Once the login is successful, the keyboard
will show camera and monitor numbers in its display.
Upon logging in, the monitor controlled by the keyboard
may automatically switch to a pre-assigned camera
number. This function is only applicable if enabled by the
system administrator (via the optional MCS package)
and may not function if the monitor is running a
sequence and/or in an alarm condition.
NOTE: The information below applies to both
IntuiKey keyboards and LTC 8555 Series keyboards.
Where applicable, button designations specific to
IntuiKey keyboards will be shown in plain text.
Equivalent button designations that apply to
LTC 8555 Series keyboards will be placed in [ ]
immediately after the IntuiKey button text.
12.2.2 Keyboard Logoff Procedure
If the login feature has not been enabled, this action is
not applicable. If the feature has been enabled, press
User Logoff [User, then OFF].
12.3
Switcher Commands
12.3.1 Camera Selection
The keyboard default mode is the camera mode, so enter
a camera number for viewing, and press [Enter].
12.3.2 Monitor Selection
Press MON [Monitor], enter a monitor number, and
press [Enter].
12.4
Controlling Camera Movement
12.4.1 General
Camera positioning is controlled via an eight-way joystick
on the right-hand side of the keyboard. This joystick
moves the camera pan/tilt, (if equipped), up, down, left,
right, or diagonally. Rotate the joystick knob to control
the zoom lens in or out.
LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Keyboard Operation
EN | 35
Moving the joystick up and to the right simultaneously
moves the camera in a diagonal direction. Rotating the
ZOOM control knob causes the lens to either zoom in or
out. The direction of its response depends on the
camera/lens model, and certain system configuration
settings that are determined at installation.
With LTC 8555 Series keyboards, press [Monitor],
[Lock], then [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 [Monitor].
Up to four pan/tilt/zoom commands may be sent to a
remote camera site at a time (Example - Zoom In, Focus
Far, Pan Left, and Tilt Down). All three zoom lens
functions can also be sent simultaneously (Example Zoom Out, Focus Near, Iris Open).
If the Status option is enabled, the section of the
on-screen overlay between the camera number and the
time shows a ML indicating the monitor is locked. This
prevents other operators from changing the video on the
monitor being used (unless they have a higher priority).
Remember to unlock the monitor when finished so other
operators can access it.
12.4.2 Focus and Iris Lens Control
The lens control buttons are on the right side of the
keyboard. The camera's zoom lens, (if equipped), can be
controlled to focus near or far, and open or close the iris
(if the lens supports manual iris operation).
12.4.3 Lock or Unlock Control of a Camera
When using IntuiKey keyboards, press Device Lockout,
located on the main Allegiant menu screen to enter a
menu screen for these options.
With LTC 8555 Series keyboards, 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 pressing the
[Lock].
If the Status option is enabled, the section of the onscreen overlay between the camera number and the time
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 other operators can access it.
12.4.4 Lock or Unlock Control of a Monitor
When using IntuiKey keyboards, press Device Lockout,
located on the main Allegiant menu screen, to enter a
menu screen with these options.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
If an operator with a higher priority accesses a locked
monitor and switches to a different camera, the lock is
automatically removed.
12.4.5 Recording a Camera Pre-position Scene
Select a camera with pan/tilt/zoom control with preposition options. Using the joystick and lens controls,
adjust the camera to view the scene you wish to store.
When using IntuiKey keyboards, press Camera Control,
located on the main Allegiant menu screen to enter a
menu screen with this option. Press Set Shot [Set], then
select the scene number via the numeric keypad, and
press [Enter]. The camera position will now be stored for
recall later.
If an AutoDome Series camera is being used, certain
pre-position commands are also used to activate
operational features/functions. Refer to the AutoDome
operation manual for complete information. If an
Allegiant conventional receiver/driver is being controlled,
the pan/tilt and zoom lens must have the necessary
options for pre-position operation.
On certain models of AutoDomes and Allegiant
Receiver/Driver Series, it is possible to disable a
previously stored pre-position, or remove it from a preposition tour, by pressing Set Shot [Set], the digit 9,
followed by the 2-digit pre-position number. Refer to
information supplied with the device to determine
whether it supports this feature.
LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Keyboard Operation
12.4.6 Recalling a Camera Pre-position Scene
Select the camera to be activated. Press Shot, enter a
previously stored camera position number via the
numeric keypad, then 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 will move directly to the second shot.
If the AutoDome Series camera is being used, certain
pre-position commands are also used to activate
operational features/functions. Refer to the AutoDome
operation manual for complete information.
12.4.7 Activate/Deactivate Auxiliary Function
When using IntuiKey keyboards, press Camera Control,
on the main Allegiant menu screen, to enter a menu
containing this option. To turn on an auxiliary function of
a remote camera device, press Aux ON [ON], enter the
number of the auxiliary you wish to activate, then press
[Enter]. Holding the [Enter] key down 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 Aux OFF [OFF], enter the number of
the auxiliary you wish to deactivate, then press [Enter].
With the AutoDome Series of cameras, auxiliary
commands are used to activate/deactivate certain
operational features/functions. Refer to the AutoDome
camera manual for complete information on features
supported by the model.
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 type 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 the
[Enter] key is depressed. Auxiliary outputs 2 through 4
can also be configured as a contact closure, 24 VAC,
or as line voltage. Auxiliary number 5 controls the
DITHER function, detailed below. Auxiliary number
6 corresponds to an internal receiver/driver
AUTOPANNING feature, previously enabled by
an option switch inside the receiver/driver.
EN | 36
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, and the cycle
continues until disabled. The feature is enabled by an
option switch in the receiver/driver, and is controlled by
the auxiliary 5 function. To activate the DITHER
function, turn 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 will accumulate a viewing
error if left unattended for a long period of time, so
occasionally a manual adjustment of the pan/tilt may be
required.
12.5

Sequence Control
12.6.1 Load/Clear a Sequence
To load a previously programmed sequence to run on
your monitor, press Load Sequence [Seq], enter the
desired sequence number (1 to 60), then press [Enter].
Note that loading a sequence does not automatically start
the sequence running.
Since sequences may be programmed to use more than
one monitor, all required monitors 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(s).
Others will receive an error message.
To clear a monitor sequence, press Load sequence
[Seq], then press [Enter]. Only the operator who
originally loaded it (or an operator with a higher priority)
is permitted to clear a monitor sequence. Others will
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.
12.6.2 Run a Sequence
To run a sequence currently loaded on a monitor, press
Start Sequence [Run]. If the sequence was stopped, the
command starts sequencing. Direction of the 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 Start Sequence [Run] is pressed
while a sequence is already running, the switcher goes
immediately to the next step in the sequence. Holding
down Start Sequence [Run] produces a quick-scan
effect. If Start Sequence [Run] is depressed when no
sequence is loaded, an error results. If the monitor is in
alarm, Start Sequence [Run] controls switching of alarm
video rather than a loaded sequence.
12.6.3 Stop a Running Sequence
To stop a sequence that is currently running, press Hold
Sequence [Hold]. The monitor status display now shows
a S to the right of the sequence number. If the sequence
is already stopped, pressing Hold Sequence [Hold] has
no effect. If no sequence is currently loaded, pressing
Hold Sequence [Hold] results in an error condition. If
the monitor is in alarm, Hold Sequence [Hold] stops the
alarm switcher rather than a loaded sequence.
EN | 38
LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Keyboard Operation
12.6.4 Controlling Sequence Direction
The direction of a sequence can be set to run either
forward or reverse. It is also possible to manually step
forward or reverse through a stopped sequence. These
actions work as follows:
If Next Sequence Step [Next] is pressed with the
sequence in the stop state, the sequence switches forward
and remains stopped. If the sequence is running when
Next Sequence Step [Next] is pressed, it immediately
goes to the next step and continues to run. The same is
true for the Previous Sequence Step [Prev] button, but
in the reverse direction. If either Next Sequence Step
[Next] or Previous Sequence Step [Prev] is held down,
quick-scan switching at a rate of approximately two steps
per second will take place. When sequences are first
loaded, their direction defaults to forward.
If Previous Sequence Step [Prev] is pressed while a
camera sequence is running, it reverses the sequence. If
Previous Sequence Step [Prev] is pushed while in a
hold mode, and the display is showing the forward
prompt, the first push changes the direction only, and a
second push then switches to the previous step. The same
is true for Next Sequence Step [Next], in the opposite
direction. The monitor status display shows an arrow
pointing either up or down to indicate the sequence
direction. The arrow will be 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, Previous
Sequence Step [Prev] and Next Sequence Step [Next]
control the alarm switcher rather than the loaded
sequence.
If no sequence is loaded, pressing Next Sequence Step
[Next] or Previous Sequence Step [Prev] automatically
steps the switcher through the camera numbers in
numerical order.
12.7
Sequence Programming
12.7.1 Programming a Simple Camera Sequence
The Allegiant system has very powerful sequencing
capabilities. Using a system keyboard, it is possible to
enter sequences to run on a single or on multiple
monitors. As long as valid camera and monitor numbers
are used, they can be entered into a sequence randomly.
More powerful features are available when sequences are
programmed via the PC-based LTC 8059 MCS, including
receiver/driver activation as part of a sequence step.
Sequence programming is only limited by the amount of
CPU memory reserved for storing the sequence steps.
The current limit for these Allegiant models is 3000 steps.
Comparing a sequence to a spreadsheet, a simple
sequence would consist of 3 columns as follows:
CAMERA
1
2
3
4
5
MONITOR
1
1
1
1
1
DWELL
2
2
2
2
2
Sequence programming is best described by going
through the above example. To enter the programming
mode, press Program Sequence [Prog]. Enter an
available sequence number (1 to 60 for these Allegiant
models), then press [Enter]. The on-screen monitor
display changes to the following format:
1st Line =
Camera (Ignore)
2nd Line = >C0001<
S0001
L0001 Time (Ignore)
M001
D02
Date (Ignore)
The top line of the display always indicates the current
step being viewed in the S0001 Section. The 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 between the > < prompts,
as in C0001 above. Now enter the 1st 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].
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
EN | 39
LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Keyboard Operation
Using the joystick, move RIGHT one step. The prompts
will shift over to the monitor number shown in the
example as M001. The monitor that was being controlled
by the keyboard before entering the programming
mode is defaulted to this position. If 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 in the example as D02. The default
dwell time for a new sequence is always 2 seconds. If a
different dwell period is desired, change the value to any
number between 1 and 60. One line is now complete.
Press Next Step [Next] to add a second line. The camera
number automatically increments, while the monitor
number and dwell remain the same as the first line. Since
this line is correct, no change is necessary and Next Step
[Next] may be pressed 3 more times until line 5 is
reached. The joystick can be used to move around within
the spreadsheet, but only the Next Step [Next] key can
add new lines.
Continue entering camera, monitor, and dwell times in
this fashion, until finished.
If you only want to store the sequence for future use and
then exit the programming mode, press Exit / Save
[Prog]. Press Exit / Run [Run], to exit the
programming mode, store the sequence into memory,
and start the sequence running. The switcher steps
through the 5 steps in the order shown, and repeats the
sequence when it reaches the last step. To program a
sequence to run once through all its steps and then stop,
enter the value 62 for the dwell time in the last step and
press [Enter]. The dwell display will change to STP,
meaning stop. To program a sequence to run once
through all its steps and then unload itself, enter the value
63 for the dwell time in the last step, and press [Enter].
The dwell display will change to ULD, meaning unload.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
To edit an existing sequence, press Program Sequence
[Prog], enter the existing sequence number, then press
[Enter]. You can insert a line into a sequence by
navigating down to the line where inserting a new line,
and press Insert Step [ON]. A new line identical to the
one you are on is added to the next step. To delete a step,
navigate to the line to be deleted, and press Delete
Current Step [OFF]. To delete all steps below the line
you are viewing, press Delete From Here To End
[Lock]. (Be careful with this feature!)
It is also possible to erase a sequence:
Press Delete From Here To End [Lock] while on the
first line of the sequence. Then press Delete Current
Step [OFF]. The sequence will be erased, and the
programming mode is automatically exited.
12.7.2 Programming a SalvoSwitching
Camera Sequence
A SalvoSwitching sequence can be used to switch a group
of monitors simultaneously as a synchronized group. To
program a Salvo sequence, enter the programming
mode as described above for a simple camera sequence.
By definition, Salvo sequencing involve more than one
monitor. An example of a simple Salvo sequence that
switches cameras on three monitors simutaneously is
shown below:
CAMERA

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]. This causes the
switcher to automatically change to the salvo abbreviation
SLV. Dwell time (in seconds) is entered only when you
reach the step containing the last monitor that will be
switched within the synchronized group.

13.1.2
User Function 1 Local Keyboard Test
User Function 1 can be used as a local test to ensure
that all the keyboard LEDs and switches are working.
This function automatically calibrates the center position
of the analog joystick on LTC 8555 keyboards. Upon
entering this test, the keyboard will beep and all LEDs
will light for about two seconds. The USER should note
if there are any LED failures.
Each key may be pressed to display a unique code
number associated with that key. Follow the TABLE
below to ensure that all keys are properly being
processed by the keyboard. Push USER last, as this
causes the keyboard to exit the test mode.
If the logon system feature has been selected by the
system installer, the same local test may be initiated
while the keyboard is not ON LINE by pressing *.

14.0 MAINTENANCE INFORMATION
THE ALLEGIANT SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO
PERFORM FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME
WITH LITTLE OR NO MAINTENANCE.
OCCASIONALLY, KEYBOARD CLEANING
OR CPU BATTERY REPLACEMENT MAY
BE NECESSARY. INSTRUCTIONS ARE
PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION.
14.1
Cleaning the Keyboard
The keyboard may be cleaned when necessary, by
temporarily removing it from the system and wiping it
with a damp cloth. If a conventional spray cleaner is
required, spray the cloth first, then wipe off the surfaces.
Do not use petroleum-based cleaners or those containing
benzene, triclorethylene, ammonia or acetone, which
could damage plastic surfaces.
14.2
Replacement of Memory Backup
Batteries
The circuit board’s lithium batteries only require attention
when replacement is necessary. The batteries enable
RAM memory to retain its contents for up to a year
without the unit being powered. Since these batteries are
not used while the AC power is on, several years of
service should be expected before replacing them is
necessary.
When the batteries have reached the end of their useful
life, the Time and Date portion of on-screen monitor
displays alternate with ?? ?? ??. This display informs the
user that the CPU batteries must be replaced. The front
panel of the unit must also provides LED indication of a
low battery condition.
The memory backup batteries are located on the CPU
module. Refer to the INSTALLATION PROCEDURE,
Section 6 for information on removing the unit cover to
access the CPU module.

The two batteries are mounted on the left edge of the
circuit board. Insert a small flat-blade screwdriver into the
slot on one of the battery holder sockets and gently pry
the battery from the holder until it can be removed by
your fingers. Replace the old battery with the new battery
by lifting the retaining clip up while inserting the battery
into the socket. Ensure that the negative side of the
battery contacts the socket by seating the battery until it is
somewhat flush with the battery holder. Repeat this
procedure for the other battery.
Reprogramming of the system’s time and date and
sequences must now be reentered. Other systemprogrammed data (camera titles, alarm configurations,
user lockout data etc.), are stored in nonvolatile memory,
and should be unaffected.

EN | 55
GLOSSARY OF TERMS
Term
Definition
AUXILIARY
An auxiliary is an additional function of the remote receiver/driver which permits on/off control of outputs
available to the user. In the Allegiant system, four relay outputs are available, which can be configured for
contact closures, 24 VAC output, or LINE voltage output. Additionally they can also be set to activate either
momentarily, or in a latching mode.
COMMAND SCRIPT
A unique feature of the Allegiant system wherein a section of nonvolatile memory can be used to store
specialized factory programming. This program then provides custom features, not ordinarily obtainable.
DITHER
A receiver/driver feature providing added protection to very low light level cameras, by periodically panning
a few degrees left and right automatically.
LOCKOUTS
Switcher/controller system ability to restrict access to certain system functions/features. The Allegiant
system modes of lockouts are:
•
By operator level, allowing a higher priority level operator to lockout lower level operators from
viewing or controlling specific cameras.
•
By MCS setups to:
1. Restrict operators/keyboards from viewing/accessing any camera.
2. Restrict operators/keyboards from controlling/accessing any pan/tilt.
3. Restrict operators from using certain keyboards.
4. Restrict operators/keyboards from accessing certain monitors.
LOGON, LOGOFF
A selectable Allegiant feature requiring operators to enter a User number and optional password into the
keyboard prior to access.
MATRIX SWITCHING
The ability of a switching system to display any camera on any monitor, or the same camera on all monitors.
PHASED CAMERAS
These are properly integrated cameras, giving a roll-free video display when switching from one camera to
the next in a sequential switcher system. Phased cameras are the result of line-locked cameras powered
from the same AC power, externally synchronized, or vertically phased adjusted on cameras equipped with
this option.
PRE-POSITION
The ability to store the position of a pan/tilt/zoom lens, so that the desired scene can later be automatically
recalled. With the Allegiant system, there can be multiple preset scenes stored for each pan/tilt camera. For
each scene, the pan, tilt, zoom, and focus settings are stored.
SalvoSwitching
The ability of the Allegiant system to switch multiple video monitors as a synchronized group. Since multiple
monitors switch together, multiple scenes of an area or zone are viewable before switching to the next area.
SEQUENCE
A series of camera scenes that can be preprogrammed to switch automatically. The Allegiant system can
store up to 60 sequences, each one capable of having random camera order, individual camera dwell
times, and SalvoSwitching steps.
TIME EVENT
An Allegiant system feature (available with the LTC 8059/00 MCS for Windows or the LTC 8850/00 GUI
software) enabling various system functions to periodically be activated automatically. Event functions
(monitor message broadcasts, sequence and switching operations, receiver/driver actions, message
printing, alarm settings, and execution of custom factory programming) can be stored in the system memory
for execution at a predetermined time. The task can be specified to begin on a specific year, month, day,
and time, and can repeat at intervals from every five minutes to a year.
VERTICAL INTERVAL
Camera to camera video switching during the vertical blanking interval of the video signal. This minimizes
visual switching disturbances such as rolling, jitter, video flashes, etc., and eliminates frame information loss
when used with video tape machines.
SWITCHING
VersAlarm
A flexible system of configuring alarms via the optional LTC 8059/00 MCS for Windows or the
LTC 8850/00 GUI software. Multiple groups of monitors can be programmed to respond to alarm
conditions in various ways. Additionally, each alarm may call up 1 to 4 cameras with user-selectable remote
operations. Alarm video may also be programmed to display user-defined alarm titles on the monitor overlay
display rather than the usual camera titles.

LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300 Series | Instruction Manual | Appendix A - Satellite Systems
APPENDIX A - SATELLITE SYSTEMS
A satellite system configuration is usually used for a
large distributed system, or to obtain extremely large
matrix sizes configured more conventionally. Typically,
a single Main control site can be used to view/control
cameras located both locally and at various remote
satellite sites. Since many satellite sites can be linked to
a single Main control site, very large, distributed
systems can be achieved. If the satellite systems are
located at the same site as the Main system, the result
is a large conventional-type system. In a satellite
configuration, the Main control site can view/control
any camera in the entire system, but the remote
satellite sites can only view/control cameras associated
with their own site. Satellites may be configured to
operate either independently or, with no local
viewing/control capability.
The Main site must consist of any Allegiant Series
switcher (LTC 8100, LTC 8200, LTC 8300, LTC 8500,
LTC 8600, or LTC 8800). Satellite site switchers can be
any Allegiant model switcher. A LTC 8780 Series Data
Converter is required at each satellite site, to perform
address decoding and data conversion for the
switching system. If the satellite site contains
pan/tilt/zoom cameras, a LTC 8569 Code Merger is
also required at the satellite site. All products are
standard models, and the only required option is to
use either the Master Control Software for Windows
LTC 8059/00 or the LTC 8850/00 GUI software
package for initial programming of each Allegiant
system.
Each satellite site must have an Allegiant control data
line from the code distribution unit at the Main site.
This data line carries all pan/tilt/zoom control
commands, in addition to the switching commands
generated by the Main site switcher. The control data
line should be connected to a LTC 8780 Series Data
Converter to provide address decoding functions for
the satellite site. If operators at the satellite site are
permitted to control pan/tilt/zoom-equipped cameras,
a LTC 8569 Series Code Merger must be installed at
the satellite site. The Code Merger combines code
generated by the main site and the satellite site, so
both sites have control over pan/tilt/zoom-equipped
cameras located at the satellite site. The LTC 8780
Series unit can then be connected to one of the data
outputs of the LTC 8569 Series unit.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
One or more monitor outputs from each satellite
system are used as trunk lines to link the remote sites
to the Main site. The number of trunk lines from a
satellite site determines the maximum number of
cameras from that site that may be viewed
simultaneously at the Main site. A satellite switcher
can provide only as many trunk lines as it has
monitor outputs.
Sufficient monitor outputs used as trunk lines must be
included in remote satellite switcher sites. The Main
site switcher must include sufficient camera inputs for
local cameras plus trunk lines. The maximum physical
number of camera inputs or monitor outputs used as
trunk lines cannot exceed the capacity of the system.
A single Main site switcher can control multiple
satellite sites up to its video input limit. If full matrix
switching is required at the Main site, the number of
trunk lines from each satellite site must equal the
number of monitors connected to the Main site
switcher. Multiple independently controlled Main site
systems can be combined to provide large numbers of
monitor outputs at the Main site. System capacities are

Since Allegiant Series switchers can act as Main site
switchers, they provide additional logical camera
numbers for identifying the location of the satellite
camera inputs in the system. These logical camera
numbers can also be used to provide titles which
would appear on the Main site’s monitors for any
remote cameras. Since each camera (anywhere in the
system) must have a unique camera number, logical
camera numbers together with physical camera inputs
make up the total system camera capacity. Thus, there
is a trade-off between the total number of Main site
cameras and the number of inputs used as trunk lines.
The more inputs used as trunk lines, the fewer there
are for use as direct camera inputs.

*Camera inputs at all sites, plus trunk lines.
The Main site system must be programmed via
the Master Control Software for Windows
LTC 8059/00 or the LTC 8850/00 GUI, to identify
camera trunk line inputs as well as remote satellite
cameras. All systems must be configured with no
duplicate camera numbers anywhere in the system.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
EN | 57
Any alarm inputs to the Main site configured to
activate satellite cameras operate normally except
when limited by the number of available trunk lines.
The software automatically determines trunk usage,
depending on the priority level of operators currently
viewing satellite cameras. Alarm inputs applied at a
satellite site will NOT activate alarm video at the Main
site. If the application requires alarms located at a
satellite to activate video at the Main site, the Main
site’s LTC 8540/00 Alarm Interface unit must be
remotely located. Multiple LTC 8540/00 Alarm
Interfaces may be remoted via the LTC 8713 Alarm
Port expander accessory, located at the Main switcher
site in LTC 8800 and LTC 8900 systems. Up to 2
LTC 8540/00 Alarm Interfaces with a LTC 8713 Alarm
Port Expander can be used in a LTC 8600 system.
One LTC 8540/00 can be used in LTC 8500 systems.
Since the LTC 8100, LTC 8200, and LTC 8300 Series
contain an integral alarm interface, the remote alarm
interface application does not apply.
A unique time and date synchronizing feature
provided in the Time Event table of the MCS for
Windows or the GUI software may be programmed
into the Main site switcher. This permits periodic
synchronizing of the time and date to all switchers in
the system based on the Main site’s clock.

follows.

APPENDIX C QUICK REFERENCE CABLE
INTERCONNECTIONS
1 System Video Connections
COAX — All video input and output connections to the
Allegiant system should be made using a good grade of
RG59U, RG6, or RG11U coaxial cable, using BNC
connectors. Use the following guidelines for proper cable
specifications:
1. Center conductor should be copper, not copper
weld or steel. Use stranded wire where there will
be cable movement, as with pan/tilts, elevators,
etc.
2. Copper braided shield at 93% coverage or better.
3. Cable impedance of 75Ω.
4. Select cable based on a target of no more than
15Ω of the center conductor resistance. A typical
value for RG59U is 15Ω per 300 m (1000 ft),
therefore the maximum cable run should be no
more than 300 m (1000 ft). RG11U/RG6 is
typically rated for 6Ω per 300 m (1000 ft), which
permits runs up to 760 m (2500 ft).
5. Use video amplifiers to extend cable distances
beyond the maximum limitations listed above.
2 Keyboards
1. The keyboard is supplied with 3 m (10 ft) of
6-conductor phone-type cable with RJ-11
connectors. The cable plugs directly into the rear
of the system’s main bay on one end, and into the
back of the keyboard on the other end. Both data
and power for the keyboard travel over this cable.
2. An optional 30 m (100 ft) cable is also available.
3. An optional kit which permits the keyboard to be
extended beyond 30 m (100 ft) is available, and
uses customer-supplied shielded twisted pair. The
kit consists of two breakout boxes which convert
from phone-type cables to shielded twisted pair,
and provide for local keyboard power. The
maximum distance using 24-gauge wire (Belden
9841 or equivalent) is typically 1.5 km (500 ft).
3 Alarm Connections
The alarm inputs can be dry contact closures or logic
levels. Connect the alarm inputs to removable screw-type
terminal blocks; the use of simple twisted pair wire is
acceptable.
Bosch Security Systems | December 8, 2004
4 Signal Distribution Connections
Only shielded twisted pair wire should be used between
the integral distribution unit outputs and the camera site
receiver/drivers. Connect the distribution unit to
removable screw-type terminal blocks. Each output is
rated to handle up to 8 receiver/driver loads (as in a
daisy chain configuration) to a maximum of 1.5 km
(5000 ft) using 1 mm2 (18) gauge wire (Belden 8760 or
equivalent).
5 Receiver/Drivers
CODE INPUT — The code input is supplied by the
shielded twisted pair cable from the signal distribution
connections. This cable is connected to a removable
screw-type terminal block, which has provisions for
looping the code cable to another receiver/driver.
OUTPUT CONNECTIONS — All pan/tilt and lens
connections require multiconductor cable. Refer to the
appropriate specification sheet for cable gauge, number of
conductors required, and maximum distances allowable.
The lens cables and any pre-position cables should be
kept shielded from other signal wires to minimize
interference.
