OPERATION USING HONEYWELL MAXPRO MODE, HONEYWELL VCL,
PELCO P CODE, OR PELCO D CODE SYSTEM
This section provides information on any differences to the material provided for
standard Honeywell Diamond protocol and provides information specific to operation
with Honeywell Maxpro mode, Honeywell VCL, Pelco P, or Pelco D control systems.
Operation of the unit is the same as described in
statements. The section number corresponds to the numbering in Section 6 (i.e.,
Section 8.3 provides additional or replacement information to that in Section 6.3.)
The HD6 must be reset through the setup menu. Send the HD6 to PreShot 90 to access
the setup menus, then access the diagnostics menu, the select the Reset Scan and
Camera option. Refer to
CONTROLLING SCAN ASSEMBLIES
The lens iris is automatically controlled by the camera, but can be controlled
manually from a controller.
The camera lens auto exposure mode can be enabled or disabled using the
controller. PreShot 92 toggles the unit between auto and manual exposure.
A message "AUTO EXPOSURE ON" or "AUTO EXPOSURE OFF" is displayed on the
video when the scan executes PreShot 92.
Auto lens exposure control is the factory default for scans set for Honeywell Maxpro
mode, Honeywell VCL, Pelco P code, or Pelco D code control.
If the auto exposure mode is enabled and the video is dark, the camera first opens
the lens iris. Once the lens iris is fully open, it increases the video gain. Once the
video gain is at a maximum, it will slow down the shutter. The slow shutter mode
increases the light integration time and the sensitivity.
