FAQ

AV-3104IP/3104/3106

1. How to connect my joystick controller to PTZ cameras?


There're 3 ways of connection: RS232, RS485/422, RJ45 (via Ethernet CAT cable). * All AViPAS cameras have either RS232 or RS485/422 port, so they can be controlled using any AViPAS joystick controllers. Please go to ""SUPPORT"->"HOW TO MATERIALS"-> " Controller connection" to download the instructions. * AV-3104IP IP controller supports VISCA over IP & ONVIF for IP control. Please go to "SUPPORT"->"HOW TO MATERIALS"-> " IP controller connection" to download the instructions.




6. Can I control multiple cameras with one controller?


Yes. * If the camera has RS232 In & out ports on the back (AV-1250/1251/1280/1281/1560/1563/2020), you may easily daisy chain multiple cameras. Please set different camera ID (VISCA/Pelco address) to each camera. * If the camera has RS485, you may make a RS485 cable for multi-camera control. Please go to "SUPPORT"->"HOW TO MATERIALS"-> " RS-485 multi-camera control" for detailed instructions. *If the cameras only have RS232 in (AV-1080/1081/1082), see FAQ #7.




8. What cable should I use for RS232 daisy chain (AV-1280/1250 Series/ 1563, AV-1560, AV-2020)


The cable (mini-din to mini-din) we recommend is VISCA-MDX8. You may choose the cable length accordingly.

7. My camera only has RS232 in, how do I connect multiple cameras to RS232 keyboard?


To conncect multiple cameras that do not support daisy chain, you'll need a RS232 spliter/hub. Connect the controller to the Input port, and cameras to the output ports. Make sure the 1. camera and controller are using the same protocal and baudrate; 2. each camera is assigned a unique camera ID.
