  • Page 15: Pte102 Rs-232 Line Driver

    The PTE102 module set containing the PTE102C and the PTE102K is a stand alone communication module pair for extending the RS-232 range of either subracks or keyboards in the Honeywell product line. Designed to support MAX-1000 standard RJ12 connections to keyboards and subracks, the PTE102 can be used with other RS-232 applications.
  • Page 16: Hmx4248 I/O Module

    HMX4248 I/O MODULE The HMX4248 is an I/O (input/output) expander for the miniMAX subrack. The unit features 24 alarm inputs that may be configured as either contact closure or end-of-line resistor sensing (DIP switch selectable on the HMX128 controller card) and eight relay outputs.

    SECTION 4: POWER POWERING UP THE MINIMAX 1. Remove the front cover(s) of the HMX32128 video subracks and remove the packing cardboard from the subracks. Replace the front cover(s). 2. Connect the power cords from the video subracks (HMX32128) to the HMXPS9 power supply using the supplied cables.
  • Page 18: Section 5: Hegs5300

    SECTION 5: HEGS5300 SETTING UP THE HEGS5300 KEYBOARD HEGS5300 keyboards are setup using the keyboard keys. There are three (3) user-defined settings. These are: • Keyboard ID – valid ID’s 1 to 99. (Default = ID 1). • Baud Rate – 19K2 or 9600. (Default = 19K2. Data format is fixed at 7 data bits, 1 stop bit, even parity).
  • Page 19: Section 6: System Testing

    TESTING THE SYSTEM WITH THE DEFAULT CONFIGURATION (RECOMMENDED) Your miniMAX system computer has been loaded with a default configuration. This configuration will provide switching of any camera to any monitor. It is recommended that the system hardware be tested in this mode prior to editing the system configuration using the SETMAX program.
  • Page 20: Section 7: Installing Software

    PC or laptop in order to edit the default configuration. The SETMAX program requires approximately 6 MB of space on the hard drive. If a CD-ROM is not available, please contact Honeywell Technical Support and request SETMAX for Windows® on 3½-inch diskettes.

    CHANGING CAMERA TITLES The miniMAX default camera titles can be easily changed using the SETMAX editor. Select the “Video Inputs” tab. Use the mouse to select the camera title (DEVICE DESCRIPTION) to be changed and type in the new description.
  • Page 24: Adding "Ptz Calls

    ADDING “PTZ CALLS” PTZ call provides single key “call” of PTZ cameras and views (presets) defined against any fixed camera. To define the PTZ call, simply enter the desired PTZ camera (to call) and preset number in the ALTERNATE CAMERA NUMBER and ALTERNATE CAMERA VIEW fields.
  • Page 25: Adding Ptz Control

    ADDING PTZ CONTROL In the default configuration, camera number 1 is the only camera configured as a PTZ camera (PTZ control). The default PTZ address is set to 1. If there are other PTZ cameras connected to the switcher, the video input table must be edited to define these cameras.
  • Page 26 8.5 ADDING PTZ CONTROL, CONTINUED 2. Select the CONTROL ID cell for the camera to be edited. Enter the number of the subrack (ID number set on the HMX128 Subrack Controller Module – first slot in the HMX32128 subrack), where the PTZ data line will be connected. (This can be different than where the video input is connected.) 3.

    8.7 DEFINING LOGICAL CAMERA SELECTIONS, CONTINUED To define the cameras within that logical group, select the VIEW / EDIT GROUP cell corresponding to the group to edit. A window will appear providing the required data fields. The Selection Number is the numeric value to be entered from the keyboard to call this camera.
  • Page 30: Other Settings

    OTHER SETTINGS The miniMAX package is shipped preprogrammed with certain default settings for various functions that are available. In the following pages you will find a description of these functions and instructions on how to make changes to your system. The illustration below will be helpful when reading through these instructions.
  • Page 31: Alarm Monitors

    As you will soon see, the sequence tables allow you to easily tailor the powerful features of the miniMAX for many applications. Looking at the sequence tables on line 20, you will see that the description text is Alarm Monitors. Under column 1 you will see the number 8.
  • Page 32: Alarm Camera Presets

    This is line 22 with the description “Alarm Camera Views.” Since there is no way of knowing what, if any, cameras are PTZ cameras there have been no views preprogrammed in the miniMAX package. 8.9.4 Alarm Relay Outputs You may take the alarm response a step further by activating control output relays against each alarm.

    8.9 OTHER SETTINGS, CONTINUED 8.9.5 Logical Monitor Selection Logical monitor selection allows the operator to select the monitor he wishes to work with by a single key press. It is particularly effective where multiple operator stations are being used. In the example below, the operator work station has 3 monitors in front of the operator and 4 monitors behind the console.
  • Page 36: Save Your Changes

    8.9 OTHER SETTINGS, CONTINUED If we take this a step farther the top 4 monitors can be defined as “Monitor D”, “Monitor E”, “Monitor F”, and “Monitor G.” If you add another station to the system and duplicate this setup you can still use the same logical monitor selection for it. In this manner, the operator does not have to know what the monitor number is at the station he is currently working on, he only needs to use the same Mon A, B, C, D, E, F, or G keys.
