and found to comply with the limits for a Class A computing device in accordance
with the specifications in Subpart B of Part 15 of FCC rules, which are designed
to provide reasonable protection against such interference when the equipment
is operated in a commercial environment. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause interference, in which case the user at his own expense
will be required to take whatever measures may be necessary to correct the i
nterference.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible
for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class A limits for radio noise emis­sion
from digital apparatus set out in the Radio Interference Regulation of Industry
Canada.

CCTV Tester
2. Overview
2.1 Introduction
The CCTV Tester tests camera video output, signal strength, and PTZ functions. It
also acts as a video pattern generator, cable mapper, and digital multimeter.
2.2 Features
A. Camera video testing (Visual). See page 16. Test a CCTV camera’s video
output visually by displaying it on the tester’s color LCD screen or loop the signal
through to a video monitor.
B. Camera video testing (Signal strength). See page 17. Perform a signal
attenuation test with the touch of a button. The video signal’s voltage (max and
average Vpp) is displayed as sync voltage. Perfect for detecting weak signals. Also
measures sync voltage.
C. Camera motion testing (PTZ). See page 17. Test a PTZ camera’s pan, tilt, and
zoom directly from the tester’s keypad. Complete with preset settings and speed
adjustment. Supports RS-232, RS-422 simplex and RS-485 connections. Baud
rates of 2400, 4800, 9600 and 19,200. RS-485 protocol includes: Pelco D,P,
Samsung, Panasonic, Molynx, and more.
D. Monitor testing (Video signal generator). See page 15. Inspect monitors and
DVRs by driving them with a known good video signal from the tester. It can
output color bars and separate colors. The Camera Wizard only supports NTSC
format.
E. Keyboard testing (RS-485 serial data test). See page 20. Test the RS-485 data
sent from a control device by displaying its hexadecimal data.
F. Digital multimeter. See page 22. Detect AC/DC voltages and measure
resistance using a built-in DMM. Useful in measuring and isolating circuit
problems.
G. Power to camera. See page 23. The tester can supply 12 VDC (200 mA) power
to a CCTV camera. Use when no camera power supply is available.
H. UTP (CAT5 or CAT6) cable test. See page 18. Test CAT5 or 6 cables for opens
and shorts. Remote terminator included.

Figure 3-2. Quick test setup.
A. Viewing a camera image: Follow diagram A to connect a CCTV camera (including PTZ control) to the tester. The camera’s video output connects to the tester’s
VIDEO IN BNC connector. The camera’s PTZ control wires connect to tester’s
RS-485/422 control block (using the terminal block/alligator clip adapter provided
with the tester). Turn ON the tester and select menu item “2.” The camera’s video
will display on the tester screen. More detailed instructions follow in this manual.
B. Connecting a monitor: Follow diagram B to connect a CCTV monitor to the
tester. The tester’s VIDEO OUT BNC connects to the monitor’s video input connector.
You can drive the monitor with the video signal generated by the tester (menu item
#4, then TELE) or in “looped mode” with a camera’s video connected to the tester’s
VIDEO IN BNC (menu item #4, then WIDE). More detailed instructions follow in this
manual.
3.4 Main Menu (in order of appearance)
3.4.1 Selection 1: System Setup: Display battery status, set auto-off time, and set
up PTZ parameters to match your CCTV camera.
NOTE: If you are not using the PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) test feature, there is no need to
set the PTZ parameters.
ENTERING AND EXITING: Press “1” to enter the setup screen. Press “MENU” to
return to the Main Menu. A typical configuration is as shown in Figure 3-3.

SAVE/EXIT. Press the “LEFT arrow” to save the setting. Press the “LEFT arrow”
again to stop the blinking. Exit by holding the “MENU key” to return to the Main
Menu.
NOTE: T he CCTVTEST has 20 PTZ protocols and 17 speed settings (1 is the slowest
and 16 is the fastest).
3.4.2 Selection 2: Video, Signal Strength, and PTZ Test
A. Display a camera’s video signal on the LCD and monitor:
CONNECTION: Connect the camera to the tester as shown in Figure 3-1. The
camera connects to the tester’s VIDEO IN jack.
Display camera video: Press “2” on the keypad to turn ON the tester’s video and PTZ
feature. The camera’s video appears on the color LCD display. The camera’s video
will also appear on a monitor (if connected to the tester’s VIDEO OUT jack). Study
the image for proper focus and viewing angle. Study the voltage readout (below)
for proper amplitude. And use the tester’s PTZ feature (below) to control pan, tilt,
and zoom.

724-746-5500 | blackbox.com
Chapter 3: Operation
Adjust LCD brightness: Use keys number 7 (BR+) and 9 (BR-) to adjust the LCD
screen’s brightness.
B. Measure signal strength (Vpp) and attenuation:
Video signal strength (attenuation): With the tester displaying the video signal
(see A), press the “1” (IRE) key. The following is displayed:
MAX Vpp: The peak-to-peak amplitude of the video signal. The larger the video
signal, the brighter the picture. 1 Vpp is minimum.
AVERAGE Vpp: The average peak-to-peak amplitude of the video signal.
SYNC SIGNAL: A camera’s sync pulses synchronize the camera with the monitor.
NO VIDEO: No signal, “No Video” will be displayed.
Example of attenuation: If the Vpp at the camera is 1.25 Vpp, and the Vpp at the
end of the cable is 1.15 V, the attenuation is 8%.
C. Testing and controlling the camera motion (PTZ):
Connection. Connect the camera to the tester as shown in Figure 3-2, diagram A.
The camera’s PTZ wires plug into the T+ and T- ports on the tester’s RS-422/485 jack
(use the terminal block/alligator adapter).

Chapter 3: Operation
3.5 Provide Power to a 12V Camera
The tester can be used to provide power to a 12V camera.
CONNECTION: Connect the cable (included) to the tester’s “DC 12V OUTPUT”
jack (on the left side of the tester). Connect the other end to the camera’s 12-VDC
power input jack. Use only with 12 VDC cameras (200 ma max.).
WORKING TIME: The amount of time that the tester powers the camera depends
on the camera’s power consumption. If the camera draws less than 100 mA, the
tester will power the camera for about four hours.
MAXIMUM CURRENT/POWER: The maximum output current from the tester
is 200 mA/2400 milliwatts.
NOTES:
1. The output voltage of tester is DC12V. Please only connect it to 12V cameras.
2. Do not connect the tester’s DC12V output to the tester’s own 5-VDC input jack.
This will damage the tester.
