Pelco CM9780 overview

  • 1Description

The Pelco CM9780256x32 Microprocessor-Based Switcher / Controller is a full-featured video matrix switching control system that allows you to view and control up to 256 cameras and 32 monitors on a single node. The expanded monitor capacity in the matrix bay allows implementation of larger systems with a smaller footprint (less hardware).

The base configuration for this switcher / controller is made up of a central processing unit (CC1), MXB (Matrix Switching Bay) with video input/output modules, and KBD (Keyboard Controller). Moreover, optional components can be added to enhance system capabilities.

Preconfigured, prepackaged systems make installation fast and simple. This microprocessor-based switcher / controller features a user-friendly Windows-based management system, which aid in easy system programming and maintenance.

Macros allow activation of events based on schedule or alarm. It may call system wide sequences (tours), activate preset positions on properly equipped cameras, and activate external relays to control auxiliary functions such as locking doors (additional equipment may be required).

The CM9780256x32 Microprocessor-Based Switcher / Controller supports built-in video loss detection and system diagnostic features, indicated by LEDs on the front panel of the matrix bay. Flash technology incorporated into the system design helps in easier system maintenance and upgrades.

The DVR management (sold separately) allows DVRs to be controlled directly from the system keyboards. Suitable DVRs can be monitored for operational conditions ensuring continuous recording.

The central processing unit communicates with external devices and accepts commands from external computers, keyboards, GUI (Graphical User Interfaces), access control systems, casino data systems, PLC (Programmable Logic Controllers), and lighting and intercom systems. An internal VGA card is included for displaying system diagnostics and programming. The RS-422 COM ports are provided for communication with external devices such as matrix switching bays, pan/tilt or dome receivers, and keyboards.

Each bay includes a power supply and mounting baffle and can support modules for up to 256 camera inputs and 32 monitor outputs. Cameras are connected to the CM9700-VPP patch panels, which are then connected to the matrix bay with video ribbon cables. Monitors connect directly to the rear panel BNC cards installed on the matrix bay. Multiple bays can be used to expand a single CPU system to a maximum of 256 camera inputs and 32 monitor outputs. A backup power supply module (MPS) (sold separately) can be installed in each bay to provide redundancy.

Note: This system requires installation by a Pelco Certified Dealer/ Installer. This specification sheet may be used for purpose of information only and does not constitute approval or certification of receiving party. Proof of certification must be provided prior to shipment.
