1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Be sure to read the instructions in this section carefully before use.

Make sure to observe the instructions in this manual as the conventions of safety symbols and messages regarded as very important precautions are included.

We also recommend you keep this instruction manual handy for future reference.

WARNING

WARNING

Do not expose the unit to rain or an environment where it may be splashed by water or other liquids, as doing so may result in fire or electric shock.

Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could result in death or serious personal injury.

Use the unit only with the voltage specified on the unit. Using a voltage higher than that which is specified may result in fire or electric shock.

Do not cut, kink, otherwise damage nor modify the power supply cord. In addition, avoid using the power cord in close proximity to heaters, and never place heavy objects -- including the unit itself -- on the power cord, as doing so may result in fire or electric shock.

Avoid installing or mounting the unit in unstable locations, such as on a rickety table or a slanted surface. Doing so may result in the unit falling down and causing personal injury and/or property damage.

Should the following irregularity be found during use, immediately stop the power supply to the unit and contact your nearest TOA dealer. Make no further attempt to operate the unit in this condition as this may cause fire or electric shock.

·If you detect smoke or a strange smell coming from the unit.

·If water or any metallic object gets into the unit

·If the unit falls, or the unit case breaks

·If the power supply cord is damaged (exposure of the core, disconnection, etc.)

·If it is malfunctioning (no tone sounds.)

·If it is malfunctioning (no image appears.)

To prevent a fire or electric shock, never open nor remove the unit case as there are high voltage components inside the unit. Refer all servicing to your nearest TOA dealer.

Do not touch a power plug during thunder and lightning, as this may result in electric shock.

Do not place cups, bowls, or other containers of liquid or metallic objects on top of the unit. If they accidentally spill into the unit, this may cause a fire or electric shock.

Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could CAUTION result in moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage.

Never plug in nor remove the power supply plug with wet hands, as doing so may cause electric shock.

When unplugging the power supply cord, be sure to grasp the power supply plug; never pull on the cord itself. Operating the unit with a damaged power supply cord may cause a fire or electric shock.

When moving the unit, be sure to remove its power supply cord from the wall outlet. Moving the unit with the power cord connected to the outlet may cause damage to the power cord, resulting in fire or electric shock. When removing the power cord, be sure to hold its plug to pull.

Avoid installing the unit in humid or dusty locations, in locations exposed to the direct sunlight, near the heaters, or in locations generating sooty smoke or steam as doing otherwise may result in fire or electric shock.

Do not place heavy objects on the unit as this may cause it to fall or break which may result in personal injury and/or property damage. In addition, the object itself may fall off and cause injury and/or damage.

Contact your TOA dealer as to the cleaning. If dust is allowed to accumulate in the unit over a long period of time, a fire or damage to the unit may result.

If dust accumulates on the power supply plug or in the wall AC outlet, a fire may result. Clean it periodically. In addition, insert the plug in the wall outlet securely.

Disconnect the power supply cord for safety purposes when cleaning or leaving the unit unused for 10 days or more. Doing otherwise may cause a fire or electric shock.

2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The TOA C-RM500 Remote Controller is used to remotely control TOA's Combination cameras over communication lines (RS-485). It can remotely control video image switching and cameras in combination with TOA's Multi-Switcher or Smart Switcher.

3. FUNCTIONS

Display Selection

The following screen formats can be selected for display of camera images connected to the Multi-Switcher: full screen, 4-segment, sequential 4-segment, 9-segment, 10-segment or 16-segment split-screen and sequential full-screen.

Manual Operation

Controls the Combination camera's zoom, focus, pan and tilt functions.

Camera Position Selection

Controls the Combination camera's orientation, and displays the camera image on the monitor in the selected orientation.

Function Key Programming

Camera numbers or camera number/position combinations can be programmed into the function keys (A – H). Pressing the function key displays the camera image on the full screen. If position numbers have been set, images of the selected camera orientation can be displayed.

Abbreviated Number Display

Permits camera numbers or camera number/position combinations to be programmed for numbers 1 – 512. Entering the programmed number followed by the SET key displays the corresponding camera number on the full screen, and the image of selected camera orientation if the position number has been set.

Alarm Function

Controls the display in synchronization with alarm signals received from a camera. When an alarm signal is detected, the image of the corresponding camera takes display precedence. The C-RM500 Controller also features an Alarm Hold function that temporarily disables channel (camera number) switching in response to an alarm signal. This prevents the display from being forcibly switched to an alerted camera during close inspection (when the Multi-Switcher is connected).

Equipment Which Can Be Controlled with the C-RM500

Shown below are equipment that can be controlled with the C-RM500.

Camera: C-CC501, C-CC504, C-CC551, and C-CC554

Up to 31 cameras can be connected to the unit's Camera control terminal and controlled. The use of the C-IF500 Interface Unit will increase the number to up to 64 cameras (when the C-SS8 switcher is in use). Note that the cameras cannot be controlled if their number is greater than the number of inputs of a connected switcher.

Switcher: C-MS90D, C-MS90S, C-MS160D, C-MS160S, and C-SS8

Only one switcher can be connected for remote camera control. However, as to the C-SS8, 1 master-designated unit and up to 7 slave-designated units can be connected to remotely control the cameras.

About the Camera Control Terminal

The Camera control terminal is used to connect the C-CC501, C-CC504, C-CC551, or C-CC554 Combination Camera or the C-IF500 Interface Unit. Up to 31 pieces of equipment can be connected to the terminal.

About the Descriptions in This Manual

The explanations in this manual assume that the C-RM500 Remote Controller is connected to a C-MS160D/S or C-MS90D/S Multi-Switcher and the C-SS8 Smart Switcher.

Camera number: Refers to the camera input terminal number connected to the switcher.

Position number: Combination camera orientation can be programmed for No. 1 – 255.
