Figure 3.1.1
Figure 3.1.2
After power on, the keyboard take the following actions automatically:
1. Self-Detecting: The first line on the LCD display shows “SYSTEM STARTUP”. The second line shows “<”
and “<” increases successively till it fills the screen with a sound “di”. If keyboard sound is turned on,
“<” increases successively with sound “di,di…” (Figure 3.1.1)
2. When Selft-Detection is Complete: The keyboard will get the current parameters automatically and
clear the contents of the second line on the LCD display. As shown in Figure 3.1.2, the first line of LCD
display shows “PELCO-D 2400 000”, which represents the communication protocol, baud rate and
address respectively.
Joystick Operation
You can use the Joystick to control the rotation, pan/tilt direction and speed of the speed dome cameras.
Changing the tilt angle of the Joystick can adjust controlling speed.
1. Rotation Control: Push the joystick in any direction to control the camera directions. At the same
time, the LCD displays "PTZ <<<<<", where "<" indicates the control speed. The more the "<" displays
on the LCD screen, the faster the control speed. To control the speed, tilts the joystick. The more the
tilt angle, the faster the speed.
2. Zoom Control: Rotate the joystick grip to adjust focal length of the lens. Clockwise rotation of Joystick
grip can zoom in and the image gets closer and larger; Counterclockwise rotation of joystick grip can
zoom out and image gets farther and smaller. When rotating the joystick, the LCD will display
"PTZ<<<<<", where "<" indicates the control speed. The more the "<" displays on the LCD screen, the
faster the control speed.
3. OSD Control: Push the joystick up to select previous menu option; push the joystick down to select
the next menu option. Push the joystick left or right can change parameters of the selected menu (as
described in 3.4 OSD Menu on LCD).
