Connect the KBD300A Full-Functionality Control Keyboard from Pelco to a switcher, recorder, multiplexer, or other compatible device to control cameras and matrix systems. The keyboard's 3-axis joystick allows users to pan, tilt, and zoom capable cameras while the keyboard can be used to adjust settings on the cameras and monitors including the manual focus, opening and closing the camera's iris, start and stop recording, and frame scanning. When attached to a switcher, the keyboard can be used to also control monitors, as well as other auxiliary devices that are connected to the camera. Depending on the type of switcher in use, up to 16 keyboards can be attached to a single switcher, a useful function for larger security systems.
Enables smooth and effortless maneuvering with the ability to control the zoom by twisting the joystick clockwise or counter clockwise.
Use it to control the major camera functions including pan/tilt, zoom, start/stop, manual focus, open/close iris as well as controlling monitors and auxiliary devices attached to the camera.
Depending on the type of switcher in use, up to 16 keyboards can be attached to a single switcher. The CM-6700 and CM6800-32X6 supports up to eight keyboards. The CM-680048X8, CM6800E-48X8 and CM6800-96X16 supports up to sixteen keyboards while four keyboards can be used with the CM9760-SAT switcher.
In the event when the full functionality a switcher offers is not required, the keyboard can also be used for direct control of up to sixteen cameras. This mode requires the use of an optional remote wiring kit (KBDKIT) as well as a Pelco MS500 or VA6100 to route the video to a monitor.
