When using a Honeywell Maxpro Mode, Honeywell VCL, Pelco P code, or Pelco D code
control system, there are several PreShots (views or presets) reserved for controlling the
scan. Refer to
Refer to your specific controller's users manual for programming PreShots.
PreShots are referred to as Views in the Maxpro Controller manuals.
To program a PreShot, you must be able to manually control the scan.
To send a scan to a PreShot or to program a PreShot on a scan, the scan must be
the control camera on the system controller.
An operator can send a scan to a PreShot by entering the PreShot number and the
PreShot command on the system controller. Refer to your controller manual for the
PreShot command. To view the PreShot video, the scan must be called up on a
monitor. Refer to your controller manual for the PreShot (View) command.
When a scan receives a command to go to a PreShot number, it goes to the
programmed PreShot pan and tilt coordinates at 400° per second. While a scan is
going to a PreShot position, the character generator adds the title of the PreShot to
the video signal and adds the letter A (automatic) with the camera ID to the video
signal. The camera ID display must be enabled to view the camera number and
letter A. PreShot titles are not programmable using a Maxpro controller. In this
case the PreShot titles are PS 001, PS 002, etc.
