DIRECTION settings (PAN, TILT, ZOOM, FOCUS, IRIS, ROTATION: NORMAL/REVERSE)
When the lever or dial is operated, the DIRECTION menu item enables the operational direction of PAN, TILT, ZOOM,
FOCUS, IRIS or ROTATION to be set as the user desires.
PAN:
When NORMAL is selected, the pan/tilt head moves toward the left when the PAN/TILT lever is tilted to the
LEFT and toward the right when it is tilted to the RIGHT. When REVERSE is selected, the head moves in
the opposite direction.
TILT:
When NORMAL is selected, the pan/tilt head moves upward when the PAN/TILT lever is tilted toward UP
and down when it is tilted toward DOWN. When REVERSE is selected, the head moves in the opposite
direction.
ZOOM:
When NORMAL is selected, the lens zoom moves toward the telephoto end when the ZOOM lever is tilted
toward TELE and toward the wide-angle end when it is tilted toward WIDE. When REVERSE is selected,
the zoom moves in the opposite direction.
FOCUS:
When NORMAL is selected, the lens focus moves toward FAR when the FOCUS dial is turned clockwise
and toward NEAR when it is turned counterclockwise. When REVERSE is selected, the lens focus moves
in the opposite direction.
IRIS:
When NORMAL is selected, the lens iris moves toward open when the IRIS dial is turned clockwise and
toward closed when it is turned counterclockwise. When REVERSE is selected, the lens iris moves in the
opposite direction.
ROTATION: When NORMAL is selected, the pan/tilt head moves clockwise when the top of the ROTATION control
switch is pressed and counterclockwise when the bottom is pressed. When REVERSE is selected, the

Cable Compensation Unit AW-RC400
Introduction
≥ The AW-RC400 is capable of providing cable
compensation for analog composite, analog Y/C or analog
component signals in five channels up to 500 meters
(when the BELDEN 8281 connecting cable or its
equivalent is used).
NOTE
≥ Input either sync signals to the sync signal input
connector on the AW-RC400 cable compensation unit
or input video signals to one of the video channels
(input composite signals or Y signals with sync to video
input connector 1). If neither of these signals is input,
the monitor selection will not be controlled.
≥ It features a 5µs advance function for the sync signals in
order to provide easy support for a system (another cable
compensation unit is required) in which the coaxial cable
connected between this AW-RC400 cable compensation
unit and the camera is longer than 500 meters.
≥ The AW-RC400 provides cable compensation for the
three Y, Pr and Pb signal channels by means of a
single control. This means that the Y, Pr and Pb signals
cannot be adjusted separately. In the same way, the Y
and C signals cannot be adjusted separately.
≥ The AW-RC400 is a cable compensation unit and, as
such, it does not come with signal conversion functions
(for converting component signals into composite
signals, for instance).
≥ When the cable compensation unit is to be discarded at
the end of its service life, ask a specialized contractor
to dispose of it properly in order to protect the
environment.

1 Power LED
7 DC 12V IN socket
This lights up green when the (2) POWER switch is set
to ON while a DC 12V voltage is supplied to the (7) DC
12V IN socket.
This is the power input socket. Connect the AW-PS301 AC
adaptor (sold separately) here.
8 MONI SEL IN connector
2 POWER switch
Control signals for selecting the video signals output to
the MONITOR1 or 2 connector are supplied to this
connector. Connect it to the MONI SEL OUT connector
on AW-RP400 pan/tilt control panel using a 10BASE-T
straight cable (equivalent to UTP category 5). It is then
possible to output the video signals of the camera
selected by the AW-RP400 or the AW-CB400 remote
operation panel which is connected to the AW-RP400, to
the MONITOR1 or MONITOR2 connector.
Set this to ON to turn on the cable compensation unit’s
power. Part of the power supply circuitry will still operate
even when the power switch is at the OFF position. To
turn off the power completely, disconnect the AC adaptor.
3 Cable length setting switches [0 to 5]
Set these switches according to the length of the coaxial
cable connected. [0] is used to provide the minimum
amount of cable compensation, and [5] the maximum
amount. As a general guideline, set to [1] if the coaxial
cable is 100 meters long, and [2] if it is 200 meters long.
9 G/L IN connectors
The sync signals (black burst signals) are input here.
These connectors are automatically terminated internally
by a 75-ohm resistance. The top and bottom connectors
have the same specifications, and the signals can be
connected to either one. The termination is released if
BNC cables are connected to both input connectors
(when they are used in a loop-through configuration).
4 Y LEVEL control
Use this to adjust the output level of the cable
compensation output signals (video output).
5 F RESPONSE control
Use this to adjust the amount of cable compensation
(frequency response compensation) for the cable
compensation output signals.
: G/L OUT connectors [1 to 5]
The genlock signals supplied to the G/L IN connector can
be distributed and output to five cameras.
Use sync signal outputs 1 to 5 to correspond to video
signal channels 1 to 5.
The signals of sync signal output connector 1 are
supplied to the camera connected to video input
connector 1.
6 SHORT/LONG selector switch
This is normally used at the SHORT position. Set it to
LONG if the coaxial cable from the camera is a long one
and the camera’s sync adjustment range is insufficient, or
if the cable compensation unit is used as part of a system
(another cable compensation unit is required) in which
the coaxial cable (BELDEN 8281 or equivalent)
connected to the camera is longer than 500 meters.

B AC adaptor storage space
The video signals of the cameras selected by the
AW-RP400 pan/tilt control panel or the AW-CB400
remote operation panel which is connected to the
AW-RP400 are output from these connectors.
The output signals are cable-compensated signals of the
same type as the input signals. For instance, if a channel
to which composite signals have been input is selected,
these composite signals will be cable-compensated and
output.
The AC adaptor can be stored here when the ambient
temperature in the location where the cable
compensation unit has been installed is under 86°F
(30°C). Remove the two screws, and remove the storage
space cover. Stow the AW-PS301 AC adaptor in such a
way that the pull-out cable will not be stressed. Trouble
will occur in the AC adaptor if the ambient temperature
exceeds 86°F (30°C), in which case it should not be
stored in the space.
< Y/VIDEO IN connectors [1 to 5]
C Cable clamp
The analog video signals are input to these connectors.
They are terminated internally by a 75-ohm resistance.
Either Y (component signals or Y of the Y/C signals with
sync) or VIDEO (composite) signals are supplied.
This is used to clamp the cable of the AW-PS301 AC
adaptor in place and prevent it from coming loose.
= Pr/C IN connectors [1 to 5]
The analog video signals are input to these connectors.
They are terminated internally by a 75-ohm resistance.
Either Pr (R-Y among the component signals) or C (C of
the Y/C signals) signals are supplied.
> Pb IN connectors [1 to 5]
The analog video signals are input to these connectors.
They are terminated internally by a 75-ohm resistance.
The Pb (B-Y among the component signals) signals are
supplied.
? Y/VIDEO OUT connectors [1 to 5]
The analog video signals are output from these
connectors. Cable-compensated Y or VIDEO (composite)
signals that are in accordance with the input signals are
output. Y signals are output if component Y signals have
been input to the Y/VIDEO IN connectors
[1 to 5], and composite signals are output if composite
signals have been input.
@ Pr/C OUT connectors [1 to 5]
The analog video signals are output from these
connectors. Cable-compensated Pr or C signals that are
in accordance with the input signals are output.
Pr signals are output if Pr signals have been input to the
Pr/C IN connectors [1 to 5], and C signals are output if C
signals have been input.
A Pb OUT connectors [1 to 5]
The analog video signals are output from these
connectors. Cable-compensated Pb signals are output if
Pb signals have been input to the Pb IN connectors
[1 to 5].

$ Providing cable compensation for the cameras
Make these adjustments using the AW-RC400 cable compensation unit.
1 Connect a waveform monitor to the video output connector on the AW-RC400, and set the signals supplied to the
corresponding video input connector to color bar signals.
2 Set the waveform monitor to the H rate (see figure below), and while monitoring the rise and fall sections of the
waveforms, set the cable length setting switch at the point where the undershoot and overshoot are kept to the minimum.
At this time, keep the Y LEVEL control and F RESPONSE control at their center positions.
3 Turn the F RESPONSE control, and adjust in such a way that the undershoot and overshoot of the waveforms in the rise
and fall sections are kept to the minimum. If the adjustment range of the control is exceeded, see if another setting can be
selected for the cable length setting switch.
4 Next, use the Y LEVEL control to obtain the prescribed video level.
5 With component signals, while observing the Y signal on the waveform monitor in the same way as with the composite
signals, use the cable length setting switch, F RESPONSE control and Y LEVEL control to adjust the cable compensation
in such a way that the prescribed video signals are obtained.
6 Next, view the Y, Pr and Pb signals in their entirety, and re-adjust the F RESPONSE control and Y LEVEL control in such
a way that the optimum cable compensation is provided.
7 With Y/C signals as well, first adjust the Y signal in the same way as with the component signals, view both the Y and C
signals, and adjust in such a way that the optimum cable compensation is provided.
