1. Summary:
The keyboard controller is used for terminal receivers such as the intelligent Speed Dome and the decoder etc. Taking the EIA/RS-485 electrical interface between the keyboard and the receiver, one keyboard can control as much as 32 speed dome and decoders without driving the bus and the maximum communication distance between the keyboard and the receiver is up to 1.2 km. It's very easy for operating and setting the Speed Dome Camera. The controller is also to control the terminal receiver to achieve the function of controlling pan/tilt, lens and etc.
Main Functions:

.....Description: N--No. Of preset position from 1 to 64.
.....Function: Store current position and refer it as No. N position.
3. Call the Preset position: N+CALL
.....Description: N--No. Of preset positions from 1 to 64.
.....Function: Transfer the camera to the position of No. N preset position.
4. Cancel the Preset position: N+CLEAR.
.... Description: N--No. Of preset positions from 1 to 64.
.....Function: Delete the No. N Preset position stored.
5. Tour the Track: N + SHOT.
.....Description: N--No. Of preset positions from 1 to 64.
.....Function: Tour the No. N track and stop tour by pushing the joystick.
6. To turn on Auto Pan (Operation of NEON SAMSUNG Protocol): AUTO + P1+On+P2+OFF.
.....Description: P1- the starting scan No. of preset point from 1 to 64, which should be set already.
.....Description: P2- the ending scan No. of preset point from 1 to 64, which should be set already. If P1=P2 Or P1 and P2 are coincided, the speed dome will make scan in range of 360.
Note: For PELCO-D, PELCO-P Protocol the way of operation is as follows:
Set the starting scan position: Transfer the Speed Dome to the starting scan position operation (AUTO)+ (ON)
Set the ending scan position: Transfer the Speed Dome to the ending scan position, operation (AUTO)+(OFF)
Run Auto Pan: (AUTO)+(SHOT)
Auto Pan operation takes the following parameters. You must set the parameters before using a Auto Pan command to begin the scan operation. You can use the scan stop command or PT scan stop command to stop the scan.
Setting scan condition.

..5. Operations under special case can be referred on the description of the menu of the ball machine.
12. Use the Joystick to Control the Speed Dome Camera:
.......You can use the speed joystick to control the Pan/Tilt direction and speed of the dome of the camera randomly. The speed of pan/tilt is decided by the angle of the joystick you operated (Figure 3). Change the tilting angle of the joystick you can adjust the speed evenly and the camera can be focused automatically in the course of scan to keep images being distinct.

Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) CCTV cameras are affordable and offer better performance then ever.
Pan Tilt Zoom surveillance cameras are used by Government, large corporations, casinos and consumers. Other uses include Mast Aerial Photography.
PTZ cameras rotate horizontally through 360 degrees, vertically through 90 degrees and have motorized optical zoom lenses. A camera turret or motorized swivel is similar to a pan-tilt head.
Pan Tilt movement can be very fast and is controlled through a wired (or wireless) connection, by the mating controller.
PTZ cameras are often mounted in domes, outside dome cameras are weatherproofed, heated and cooled.
