The Pelco CM680096X16X Matrix Switcher / Controller (PAL) is a single box solution for medium-sized matrix switch applications. This cross-point matrix switcher provides switching and control from any one of up to 10 keyboards. The system can also be used to control other devices, such as Genex multiplexers.

The switcher provides easy-to-use, password-protected on-screen configuration menus, and supports up to 8 languages (English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish). It is designed to be remotely operated from desktop keyboards or external computer systems. Moreover, you can easily configure this switcher / controller using the on-screen menus and a system keyboard or the Windows-based system management software. The software supports for remote configuration and external storage of all user setups.

The user-enabled character display shows time and date, operation mode, camera number, and a 20-character title for quick, easy identification of the on-screen video. The CM680096X16X Matrix Switcher / Controller supports powerful system macros (96) and configurable sequences (16), which allow activation of commonly occurring events based on time / calendar or alarms. Furthermore, macros provide quick call-up of multiple cameras to multiple monitors.

Macros can also activate preset positions and auxiliaries on suitably equipped (PTZ or dome) receivers, and activate external relays to turn on lights, lock doors, or control other auxiliary functions (additional equipment may be required).

Built-in video loss detection alerts the operators or technicians of camera failure. The logical camera numbering provides the ability to assign any camera number to the physical input. An integral color bar generator allows the user to adjust the monitor settings.

The system manager can select from a wide variety of alarm handling and display options. An alarm can trigger a macro, preset, or pattern, and alarmed cameras can be displayed on one or several monitors. It also provides the choice for the order in which alarms are displayed, alarm priorities, automatic or manual acknowledgement, and activation of auxiliaries.

Multiple ports are provided for PTZ control and keyboards in the CM680096X16X Matrix Switcher / Controller. A single data line using Pelco M protocol can accommodate various types of equipment such as keyboards and external alarm interface units. The RS-232 ports allow for communication with a PC, while the peripheral components allow for expansion of alarms, relay contacts, and keyboards.
