The CCTVmate test monitor is supplied with a neck strap for
secure one-handed control whilst being used up a ladder. In addition to
its basic function as a camera test monitor, the CCTVmate has a number
of built in test meters and is a professional troubleshooting kit for
any CCTV engineer.
A built in meter measures the camera's composite video signal and
displays the reading over the camera's image on the 3" LCD screen. Also a
built in multimeter can test the AC or DC voltage on power cables as
well as testing for a break in the cables.
The CCTVmate has a DC 12V output for providing power to a camera
which will make camera testing using the CCTVmate a much easier task.
The network cable testing function allows end to end testing of
network cable for correct termination, it can also be used to check and
to calibrate CCTV monitors.
For a truly professional edge, the CCTVmate has an RS485 connection
to allow full directional and zoom control of a connected PTZ without
the use of a separate keypad. This function enables pan/tilt, zoom
in/out, preset setting and operation, speed adjustment etc via RS-232,
RS422 and RS485 communications port. There are 29 RS485 protocols
provided with the CCTV Tester including Pelco D and Pelco P.
