Hi Yasir,

which pin -out cable documet did you used to build your cable?

make sure you respected the following :

Rj45 (8pin)                            D-Sub

+12Vdc 1------------------------ 4

GND      2------------------------ 5

RX         3------------------------ 2

TX         6------------------------ 3

NC         4------------------------ 1

NC         5------------------------ 6

GND      7------------------------ 5

+12Vdc 8------------------------ 4

what type of PHD Camera is connected to the C60? a 1080p (12x,4x) or 720p?

when pointing IR remote control to the camera and doing PTZ the green led on left of  the camera should blinking?

If you are 100% of your cable then check the following :

did you tested with enabling IR only on the codec (auto/on/off)?  then only on the Camera (on/off)? ? or both are enable? (sometime you need to trigger btw both IR as value are saved ).

when you restart the codec make sure the green led is ON and the camera is initializing itself?

Regards

Dean.

Yes when I pointing IR to the Camera and doing PTZ the Green light blink and working fine .

did you tested with enabling IR only on the codec (auto/on/off)?  then only on the Camera (on/off)? ? or both are enable? (sometime you need to trigger btw both IR as value are saved ).

Yes I enabling IR on both (Camera and Codec) but not helpful.

when you restart the codec make sure the green led is ON and the camera is initializing itself?

Yes when I restart the codec Camera Behavior is absolutely normal

Hi Yasir,

Do you have X3 1080p 12x PHD cameras connected to the C60 at the same time using Daisy chaining?

Or you have the same issue when testing the X3 separate cameras with the C60?

Regards,

Dean.

I checked both scenarios.

In real scenario, I have  3x Cameras Conntected to the C 60 at the same time using Daisy Chaining .

Hi Yasir,

Are you able to see the camera getting detected in xstatus Camera 1?

Can you try run the Camera PositionSet commands on the codec and verify if the camera is moving. This would show and sure that the input from codec is reaching to the camera:

xCommand Camera PositionSet

    CameraId(r): <1..7>

    Pan: <-65535..65535>

    Tilt: <-65535..65535>

    Zoom: <0..65535>

    Focus: <0..65535>

Once issueing these commands, the camera should move accordingly. Also please note that the IR on the Codec should be set to AUTO & IR on Camera should be set to ON.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Mubashshir Akhtar

Camera Control cable

Are you powering the camera only over the control cable, or are you powering it externally?

If you're trying to power the camera over a very long control cable, the voltage drop will be too much so things (such as the camera motor) don't always work properly.

The best fix is to add a power supply directly to each of the cameras in the chain and not rely on the control cable to power the camera.  We've successfully extended the control cables out to 20 metres doing this.
