Local Keyboard Test -Keyboard User Function 1
Keyboard User Function 1 is an Allegiant system
keyboard feature used to verify that all the keyboard’s
LEDs and switches are in working order. This function
also automatically calibrates the center position of the
analog joystick. Upon starting this test, the keyboard
emits a short beep and all LEDs light for about two
seconds. During this time, note 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 the keyboard is properly processing all
keys. The amount of deflection of the Joystick during
pan/tilt actions is indicated by a speed indicator value in
the first digit position of the LED display. Rotation of the
Zoom control indicates a value of x41 when rotated
clockwise, and x40 when rotated counterclockwise. Push
USER last, as this exits the keyboard test mode.
If the login system features have been selected by the
system installer, the same local test can be initiated while
the keyboard is not online, by pressing "*" (the star key).

TROUBLESHOOTING
9.1 General
PROBLEM
Possible Causes
No Power Indication
a) If powered from a non-modular type Allegiant, try another
keyboard port on the Allegiant. The port may have failed.
b) If powered from a modular type Allegiant, check the fuse on
main Allegiant power supply. Try another keyboard port.
c) If powered from a separate power source, check power
source or main AC supply of power source.
d) If power source is confirmed to be OK, the keyboard may
have an internal failure. Swap suspect keyboard with a
known good keyboard.
LED Displaying flashing dashes
a) If the login feature is enabled, the keyboard may be logged
off. (User LED lit and OFF LED lit)
b) If the login feature is not enabled, or the keyboard port is
logged in, there is likely a data communication error. Test the
keyboard cable in another keyboard port. Swap the suspect
keyboard with a known good keyboard. Try another
keyboard data cable. Check keyboard data cable
connections.
c) If using RS-232 protocol models with a dial-up modem link,
the keyboard may be waiting for the operator to dial a phone
number and establish communication with the Allegiant.
Non-operating Key or LED digit
a) If a key does not seem to be working, verify that the
attempted function is applicable to the device being
controlled, or the switcher’s current situation.
b) Key or LED may be defective. Run the User Function 1 test
described in section below.
Camera and Monitor numbers being displayed, but
Allegiant system will not respond to changes or
P/T/Z controls
a) Verify that the attempted function is applicable to the device
being controlled, or the switcher’s current situation.
b) If using a directly connected cable, the keyboard port or
keyboard could be defective. Swap the suspect keyboard
with a known good keyboard.
c) If using a communication link other than a directly
connected cable, there could be a problem with the
communication link. Data is being received from the
Allegiant if camera and monitor numbers are displayed, but
these symptoms indicate that the keyboard’s data is not
getting back to the Allegiant. Test with a directly connected
Allegiant keyboard cable. Verify that the communication link
is compatible with Allegiant keyboard data communications.
Intermittent beeping and/or display of error message
90, 92, 94, or 95.
a) Error 90, Error 92, and Error 94 indicate the Allegiant
system has received invalid data. The most likely cause is
excessive EMI interference on the keyboard data cable,
within the keyboard itself, or possibly in the Allegiant
system. If the keyboard is remoted a long distance, try using
the 3 m (10 ft) data cable supplied with the keyboard.
b) Error 95 indicates that there is intermittent keyboard
communication. Verify the physical data cable connections
and the integrity of the cable connectors.

Programming a SalvoSwitching Camera
Sequence
A SalvoSwitching® sequence allows specification of a
group of monitors that will switch together as a
synchronized group. To program a salvo sequence, enter
the programming mode as described above for a simple
camera sequence. Since a salvo sequence involves
multiple monitors switching as a group, the sequence
must involve more than 1 monitor. An example of a
simple salvo sequence that switches cameras on three
monitors simultaneously is shown below in spreadsheet
format:

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

Keyboard User Functions
Keyboard User Functions are used to configure system
settings that do not require changing on a frequent basis.
Only operators with a level 1 priority have access to all
functions, and several require entry of a password. A
summary list is shown below; for complete configuration

Programming of sequences can best be described by
going through the above example. Initiate the
programming mode by pressing PROGRAM. Enter an
available sequence number (1 to 60 for most Allegiant
models; 1 to 256 for LTC 8900 systems), then press
ENTER. The on-screen monitor display will change to
the following format:
1st Line =
Camera (Ignore) S0001
L0001
Time (Ignore)
2nd Line =
>C0001<
D02
Date (Ignore)
M001
The top line of the display always indicates the current
step being viewed, in the S0001 section. Total length of
the sequence is displayed in the L0001 section.
When programming a new sequence, the camera
number that was being viewed before entering the
programming mode is automatically placed within the >
< prompts (as in the above example showing camera
number C0001 on the 2nd line). Enter the first camera of
the sequence into this position. If the camera number is
correct, no action is necessary. If not, enter the desired
camera number via the keypad, and press ENTER.
Using the joystick control, move to the RIGHT one step.
The prompts will shift over to the monitor number
shown above as M001. The monitor that was being
controlled by the keyboard before entering the
programming mode defaults to this position. If it is
correct, no action is necessary. If not, enter the desired
monitor number via the keypad, and press ENTER.
Bosch Security Systems | 29 August 2003
EN | 24
Move RIGHT again. The prompts now shift over to the
dwell time shown above as D02. The default dwell time
for a new sequence is two seconds. If a different dwell
period for this step is desired, change the value to any
number between 1 and 60. One line is now complete.
Press NEXT to add a second line. The camera number
automatically increments, but monitor number and dwell
remain the same as the first line. Since this line is
correct, no change is necessary and NEXT may be
pressed three more times, until line five is reached. Note
that the joystick can be used to move around within the
spreadsheet, but only the NEXT key adds new lines.
Continue entering camera, monitor, and dwell times in
the same fashion until finished.
To store the sequence for future use and then exit
programming mode, press PROG. If you press RUN,
the programming mode exits, the sequence is stored into
memory, and the sequence begins to run. The switcher
steps through the five steps in the order shown, and
repeats the sequence when it reaches the last step.
To program a sequence that runs once through its steps
and then stops, enter the value 62 for the dwell time in
the last step, and press ENTER. The dwell display will
change to the STP indicator, meaning stop. To program
a sequence that runs once through its steps, and then
unloads itself, enter the value 63 for the dwell time in the
last step and press ENTER. The dwell display changes
to ULD, meaning unload.
To edit an existing sequence, press PROG, enter the
existing sequence number, and then press ENTER. You
can insert a line into a sequence by navigating to the
appropriate line and pressing ON. An identical line will
be added to the next step. To delete a step, navigate to
the line and press OFF. To delete all steps below the line
you’re viewing, press LOCK. (Be careful with this
feature!)
To completely erase a sequence, press LOCK while on
the first line of the sequence, and then press OFF. The
sequence is then erased, and programming mode
automatically exits.

KEYBOARD MODELS
The LTC 8555 Series keyboards are available in four
models. The table below summarizes the differences
between models:

The LTC 8555/00 and LTC 8555/01 models use the
Allegiant RS-485 communication protocol, and are the
most common versions. These models are ready to
operate as soon as they’re connected to the Allegiant
system.
The LTC 8555/02 and LTC 8555/03 are similar, but
use an RS-232 communication protocol. These models
can be used with communication links such as dial-up
modems, or other media that support full duplex RS232 transmission. Since the RS-232 models connect to
the Allegiant’s RS-232 ports rather than the standard
RS-485 keyboard ports, some initial configuration
programming of the Allegiant switcher is necessary.
With a few minor exceptions, general operation is
identical for all models.
Although the LTC 8555/00 and LTC 8555/01 are
compatible with Allegiant systems of any age, the
LTC 8555/02 and LTC 8555/03 models require
Allegiant CPU firmware version 7.6 or higher.
Although this version was released in late 1998, it is
possible to update older systems using a firmware
download in some cases or by replacement of the CPU
module with a current version. If necessary, contact
your local sales office for additional details.

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

In LTC 8600, and LTC 8900 systems, standard
keyboards above eight are connected to the systems
using either an LTC 8714 Series Keyboard Port
Expander, or a combination of LTC 8714 and
LTC 8715 Series Keyboard Port Expander accessory
units. Keyboard Port Expander units are Allegiant
accessory devices that are purchased separately. In
LTC 8800 systems, keyboards above eight can be
connected to the LTC 8802 Monitor Expansion bay
(up to 8 more) and/or Keyboard Port Expanders.
RS-232 model keyboards are connected to the
Allegiant’s console or printer port or to ports provided
by a LTC 8712 Series Console Expander unit.
When connected directly to an Allegiant CPU bay
using either the supplied cable or the optional
LTC 8558 Extension Cable, the keyboard is powered
by the Allegiant power supply. In all other
configurations power to the keyboard is typically
provided via a power adapter included in the optional
LTC 8557 Series Remote Hookup kit.

7.5.12
Load/Clear a Sequence
To load a previously programmed sequence so it can be
run on your monitor, press SEQUENCE, enter the
desired sequence number (1 to 60 for most Allegiant
models, or 1 to 256 for the LTC 8900 system), and then
press ENTER. Note that loading a sequence does not
automatically initiate the sequence. Refer to the following
sections for sequence control information.
Since sequences may be programmed to use more than
one monitor, all monitors required for a sequence must
be available. If a sequence is already on a monitor, the
operator who loaded it originally (or an operator with a
higher priority) is permitted to load a new sequence on
the monitor or monitors. Others receive an error
message.
To clear a sequence from a monitor, press SEQUENCE
and ENTER. Only the operator who loaded it originally
(or an operator with a higher priority) is permitted to
clear a sequence from a monitor. Others receive an error
message.
If enabled, the status display area of the monitor
indicates the sequence number in the appropriate
location. If no sequence is currently loaded, "00" is
displayed.
7.5.13
Run a Sequence
To run a sequence currently loaded on a monitor, press
RUN. If the sequence was stopped, the RUN command
will initiate sequencing. The direction of sequencing is
indicated in the monitor status display (if enabled) by a
directional arrow and the letter 'R' to the right of the
sequence number. If RUN is pressed while a sequence is
already running, the switcher goes immediately to the
next step in the sequence, and continues to run. Holding
down RUN produces a 'quick-scan' effect. If RUN is
pressed when no sequence is loaded, an error results. If
the monitor is in alarm, RUN controls the switching of
alarm video rather than a loaded sequence.
7.5.14
Stop a Running Sequence
Press HOLD to stop a sequence if one is currently
running. The monitor status display shows 'S' to the right
of the sequence number. If the sequence is already
stopped, pressing HOLD has no effect. If no sequence is
currently loaded, pressing HOLD results in an error
condition. If the monitor is in alarm, HOLD stops the
alarm switcher rather than a loaded sequence.
Bosch Security Systems | 29 August 2003
7.5.15
Controlling the Direction of a Sequence
The direction of a sequence can be set to run in either a
forward or reverse direction. It is also possible to
manually step though a stopped sequence, either forward
or reverse. These actions work as follows:
If NEXT is pressed with the sequence in the stop
state, the sequence switches forward and remains
stopped. If the sequence is running when NEXT is
pressed, it immediately goes to the next step and
continues to run. The same is true for PREV, but in
the reverse direction. If either NEXT or PREV is
held down, a 'quick-scan' effect, switching at a rate of
approximately two steps per second, takes place.
When sequences are first loaded, the direction
defaults to forward.
If PREV is pressed while a camera sequence is
running, it reverses the sequence. If PREV is pressed
while in a hold mode and the display is showing the
forward prompt, the first push changes the direction
only, and a second push switches to the previous
step. The same is true for NEXT in the opposite
direction. The monitor status display shows an arrow
pointing either up or down, indicating the direction
of the sequence. The arrow is to the right of the
sequence number, either above or below the
sequence run ‘R’ or stopped ‘S’ indicator. If the
monitor is in alarm, PREV and NEXT control the
alarm switcher rather than the loaded sequence.
If no sequence is loaded, pressing NEXT or PREV
automatically steps the switcher through the camera
numbers in numerical order.
7.5.16
Programming a Simple Camera Sequence
The Allegiant system has very powerful sequencing
capabilities. Using a system keyboard, it is possible to
enter sequences that will run on a single monitor or
multiple monitors. As long as valid camera and monitor
numbers are used, they can be entered into a sequence
in a completely random order. More powerful features
are available when sequences are programmed via the
PC-based LTC 8059 Master Control Software, including
the capability to activate receiver/driver actions as part
of a sequence step.
The only limitation associated with sequence
programming is the CPU memory required for storing
the sequence steps. The current limit for most Allegiant
models is 3000 steps, but the LTC 8900 supports up to
6000 steps.
EN | 22
LTC 8555 Series | Instruction Manual | User Information
To turn off an auxiliary function of a remote camera
device, press OFF, enter the number of the auxiliary to
be deactivated, then press ENTER.
With AutoDome cameras, auxiliary commands are used
to activate/deactivate certain operational features and
functions. Refer to the manual supplied with the
AutoDome camera for complete information on
supported features.
In the Allegiant Receiver/Driver series, the first 4
auxiliaries correspond to relay outputs. Option switches
in the receiver/driver can configure these to operate as
either ‘latching’ or ‘momentary’ functions. If configured
for the 'latching' type, the auxiliary will stay on once
activated, until turned off. If configured as 'momentary',
the auxiliary remains on only as long as ENTER is held
down. Auxiliary outputs 2 through 4 can also be
configured as contact closures, 24 VAC, or as line
voltage. Auxiliary number 5 controls the DITHER
function (see below). Auxiliary number 6 corresponds to
an internal receiver/driver AUTO-PANNING feature
that must have been previously enabled via an option
switch internal to the receiver/driver.
DITHER is a legacy Allegiant Receiver/Driver feature
designed to extend the life of tube-based low-light level
cameras. Its function was to prevent bright lights in the
scene from burning a spot on the camera imager. When
this feature is active and the pan/tilt is not moved for a
period of about 2 minutes, the receiver/driver
automatically pans right for approximately 0.5 seconds.
Two minutes later, a pan left occurs. This cycle continues
until disabled. The feature is enabled via an option
switch in the receiver/driver, and is activated by turning
on auxiliary 5. To deactivate the feature, turn off
auxiliary 5. When first enabled, the pan/tilt unit makes
one short Left/Right cycle to indicate that the DITHER
function has been activated. Note that a camera in the
DITHER mode accumulates a viewing error if left
unattended for a long period of time, so occasionally a
manual adjustment of the pan/tilt may be required.

7.5.8
Arm/disarm Individual Alarms
Alarm commands are used to control the system's
automatic video switching, in response to alarm signals.
To arm/disarm an individual alarm on the monitor
currently controlled by the keyboard, press ALARM.
Enter the alarm number to be armed using the numeric
keypad, and press ON to arm the alarm, or OFF to
disarm it.
Using default settings, the camera activated by an alarm
is normally the same as the alarm number, but this
relationship can be changed via the optional Allegiant
PC based Master Control Software package. In cases
where the alarm number does not match the camera
number, it is important to specify the alarm number
when using this command.
The monitor status display (if enabled) shows "'CA"
(camera/alarm armed) whenever an armed camera is
selected.
7.5.9
Arm/disarm All Alarms
To arm/disarm all alarms on the monitor currently
controlled by the keyboard, press USER, ALARM, then
ON to arm all alarms, or OFF to disarm all alarms.
7.5.10
Arm/disarm Monitor
To arm/disarm the monitor currently controlled by the
keyboard, press USER, MONITOR, then ON to arm
the monitor, or OFF to disarm the monitor.
NOTE: Alarm video will appear on a given monitor
only if the monitor is armed and the alarm is armed for
that monitor.The monitor status display (if enabled)
shows "MA" (monitor armed).
7.5.11
Acknowledgement of Alarms
ACK is provided so system operators can respond to
alarms from the keyboard. Pressing ACK while the
keyboard is beeping due to an alarm condition always
silences the beeper. Depending on alarm configuration
programming, subsequent pressing of the ACK key
either clears alarm video from the monitors, or has no
effect.

7.5.1
Keyboard Operating Instructions
Camera Selection
Enter a valid camera number via the numeric keypad
and press ENTER. The selected camera then appears on
the monitor currently controlled by the keyboard.
NOTE: The keyboard's CAMERA button does not need
to be used for simple camera selections. The button is
only useful when it’s necessary to cancel a previous
incomplete action, such as canceling a monitor selection,
and return to the camera number entry mode.
7.5.2
Monitor Selection
To select which monitor will respond to the operator 's
keyboard commands, press MONITOR. Enter a valid
monitor number via the numeric keypad and press
ENTER. The number of the selected monitor will
appear on the keyboard's monitor display.
7.5.3

and lens controls, adjust the camera to view the scene to
be stored. Press SET, then select the scene number using
the numeric keypad, and press ENTER. The camera
position is now stored, for later recall.
If an AutoDome® camera is being used, certain preposition commands are also used to activate operational
features and functions. Refer to the AutoDome operation
manual for complete information. If a conventional
Allegiant Receiver/Driver is being controlled, the
pan/tilt/zoom lens must have the necessary options for
pre-position operation.
Certain AutoDome models and Allegiant
Receiver/Driver series have the capability to disable a
previously stored pre-position or remove one from a preposition tour by pressing SET, the digit 9, followed by
the 2-digit pre-position number. Information supplied
with the device will identify whether this feature is
available.
7.5.6
Recalling a Camera Pre-Position Scene

7.1
General
The Allegiant system is factory-supplied with various
user-selectable features set to their default states (the
main Allegiant system Installation Manual contains
complete descriptions). Since these features are userselectable and have a significant effect on system
behavior, some of the descriptions below may not apply
to your system configuration.
7.2
9. If the User number and password are valid, you
will be logged onto the system. The keyboard’s
LEDs now indicate a monitor and camera
currently under control by the keyboard.
USER INFORMATION
Keyboard Login Procedure
Two modes of keyboard access exist. The factory default
settings, allow the keyboard to be used as soon as it is
connected to an operating Allegiant system. The second
mode requires operators to logon to the keyboard before
access to the system is permitted. A valid User number
and password are required. If the login feature is being
used, the system installer or administrator typically
provides this information to all operators requiring
system access.
Perform the following steps to login to the keyboard:
1. It the keyboard is displaying a camera and
monitor number, it is already logged on; no
action is required. When the keyboard is in a
logged off state, the left side LEDs display 3
flashing dashes.
2. Press ON. A 'U' should appear in the LED
display as a prompt for entering a User number.
3. Enter your User number via the numeric keypad,
then press ENTER. Up to 32 user numbers are
available (128 for Allegiant LTC 8900 models).
4. If the entry is incorrect, press CLEAR and repeat
the above step.
EXAMPLE: ON 12 ENTER 123456 ENTER
This example shows User #12 with password #123456
logging onto the system.
7.3
Keyboard Log Off Procedure
If the logon feature is not enabled, it will not be possible
to log off the keyboard. If the feature has been enabled
and you are currently logged on, press USER, then press
OFF. The logged off keyboard displays flashing dashes
in the keyboard LED display.
7.4
Modem Dialing (applies to
LTC 8555/02 and LTC 8555/03
models only)
The LTC 8555/02 and LTC 8555/03 keyboard models
support the ability to dial the phone number of an
attached modem. When the keyboard is offline, pressing
ENTER causes it to go into dial mode. Modem
initialization takes a few seconds, then the keyboard
displays "dial" in the camera number display.
Enter the phone number via the keypad. The "*" (star)
button can be used to insert a pause between digits. The
digits scroll to the left in the monitor display as the
phone number is entered. Use CLEAR to backspace
over the digits in the reverse order that they were
entered. Although the modem remembers all digits
entered, the keyboard only remembers the last four, so if
CLEAR is pressed repeatedly, the display begins to
show periods after it has cleared 4 digits.
6. Verify that the keyboard monitor display now
shows a 'P'.
Once the entire number has been entered, press
ENTER to initiate modem dialing. Press USER at any
time to cancel dialing. Dialing is also cancelled if
CLEAR or ENTER is pressed when no digits have been
entered.
7. Enter the password (maximum of six digits). The
keyboard camera display indicates the number of
digits entered, but not the actual password. Press
ENTER when finished entering the user
password.
The keyboard will flash the word "dial" in its display
until a connection with the system is established, and it
begins to receive data from the Allegiant switcher. If no
data is received within one minute, the keyboard will
time out and return to the flashing dashes mode.
8. If the User number or password is invalid, the
display returns to the flashing dashes mode.
If the modem is online, and the user is logged in,
pressing USER 190 ENTER forces the modem to hang
up immediately.
5. Press ENTER.

Allegiant System Command Scripts for
RS-232 Model Keyboards
When a keyboard is being connected to an Allegiant’s
Console port, or an Allegiant Printer port configured to
operate in the Console mode, the Allegiant must be
preprogrammed so the port will operate in the RS-232
keyboard mode.
The mode of the Allegiant’s Console port can be
changed either by a manually entered ASCII text
command, or preprogramming the Allegiant CPU with
an Allegiant Command Script. The Command Script
method is preferred since the appropriate settings are
automatically restored after a system power loss or reset.
Manually entered commands remain valid only until the
system is reset or powered off/on, so typically they
should be used only for temporary or test purposes.
To manually configure an Allegiant’s Console port to
operate in the keyboard mode, it is necessary to connect
to the system via Windows® HyperTerminal or another
dumb terminal emulator.
NOTE: Allegiant Console and Printer RS-232 ports do
not use a standard RS-232 pinout. Use of an Allegiant
Console cable is recommended (If necessary refer to the
Allegiant Console cable pinout reference at the end of
this manual).
The Allegiant RS-232 settings are user-programmable,
but the default settings are:
•
Baud
19,200
•
Stop bits
1
•
Data bits
8
•
Parity
None
•
Handshake
None
Once online with the system, an Allegiant prompt
appears each time Enter is pressed. The prompt will look
as follows:
TC8x00 >
where x is a digit from one to nine (varies based on the
Allegiant model being interfaced)
Bosch Security Systems | 29 August 2003
At the system prompt, manually enter the appropriate
command, based on the Allegiant port in use, and type
of keyboard interface. Refer to the table below to
determine the correct command. Enter the command
exactly as shown below, then press ENTER.

6.1
KEYBOARD CONTROLS
Joystick
Camera positioning is controlled via an eight-way
joystick on the right-hand side of the keyboard. This
joystick is used to move a pan/tilt-equipped camera up,
down, left, right or diagonally. Rotating the ZOOM
control knob causes the lens to either zoom in or out.
The direction of its response depends upon several
factors, including the camera/lens model, and certain
system configuration settings determined at installation.
Up to four pan/tilt/zoom commands may be sent to a
remote camera site at one time (example: Zoom In,
Focus Far, Pan Left, and Tilt Down).
6.2
Focus and Iris Lens Controls
The lens control buttons are at the right side of the
keyboard. Use these buttons to control cameras
equipped with motorized zoom lenses to focus near or
far, and open or close the iris (if the lens supports
manual iris operations). Up to three zoom lens functions
can be sent simultaneously (example: Zoom Out using
the joystick knob, Focus Near, and Iris Open).
6.3
Numeric Keypad
Use the numeric keypad when it’s necessary to enter a
numeric value, for instance, Camera numbers, Monitor
numbers, user number, or password information.
Leading zeros are not necessary when entering a
number.
6.4
"*"(Star) Button
The ‘*’ key is used to activate an advanced programming
feature in the Allegiant CPU. It has no default function,
and will cause ERROR 96 to occur unless an associated
Command Script has been programmed into the
Allegiant.
Bosch Security Systems | 29 August 2003
Other Keyboard Buttons
See the Operating section of this manual.
6.6
Keyboard Displays
The keyboard has two groups of seven-segment LED
displays. The monitor LED display is a three-digit
display that shows the number of the monitor currently
being controlled by the keyboard. During certain
operating modes, it may also display prompts and
diagnostic information.
The camera LED display is a four-digit seven-segment
display that shows the number of the camera being
viewed on the monitor that the keyboard is controlling.
There are three modes for this display; camera mode is
the default, but when the operator pushes one of the
numeric data keys, the display shows the numeric
keystrokes as entered from the keyboard, and also causes
the decimal point, in the lower right-hand side of the
camera display, to light. If the keyboard remains inactive
for about five seconds, the camera display returns to
default mode and again displays the camera number.
The third mode is for error display (refer to Error
Messages). When the operator enters an erroneous key
sequence, the keyboard beeps and an error number is
temporarily displayed (for approximately 2 seconds).

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

The modem on the Allegiant side must be set to an auto answer mode, and the modem on the keyboard side must be
set to an originate mode. In some cases, modem settings are configured via dipswitches found on the back of the
modem. In other cases, the modem must be connected to a PC for configuration. The below settings represent the
dipswitch configuration required for US Robotics Sportster modems.

Console Expander Configuration When Using RS-232 Model Keyboards
RS-232 model keyboards may be connected to an Allegiant system using the LTC 8712 Series Console Port
Expander, as shown in Figure 8. An LTC 8712 Series Console Port Expander can be configured to support up to four
RS-232 Keyboard connections. Other devices, such as a PC running the Allegiant Master Control software, can be
connected to the unused ports of the Port Expander. Because the Port Expander supports only a single baud rate for
the external connections, and the RS-232 keyboards require 9600 baud, all external devices connecting to the Port
Expander must be configured to for operation at this setting.

Figure 8: Configuration using LTC 8712 Series Console Port Expander
On Allegiant systems with a Printer port, up to two Console Port Expanders can be connected, supporting a total of
eight RS-232 model keyboards.
To configure an Allegiant system to operate with an LTC 8712 Console Port Expander, you must have access to the
Allegiant CPU’s dipswitches, the PC-based LTC 8059 Master Control Software, and possibly an Allegiant keyboard.
