I didn't want this on the forum as it was given to me in confidence for a project some years ago..

One type of camera control uses a sequence of 6 pulses to give absolute positions for the pan tilt zoom iris (apperture) and illumination. Each control pulse is between 1millisecond and 10 millisecond long ( min to max on the control ) and the 6th is the 15 millisecond marker to identify the start of the sequence.

one millisecond is 0 degrees home and 10 milliseconds is 390 ( 30 degrees beyond home ).

That sort of control may not be carried by a "normal" serial data radio link as these often re-generate the data waveform to remove any errors that the radio link may introduce. Some re-format the serial data to add error correction check sums and they will not carry pulse width modulation control signals without serious changes to the control value.

Best regards

My reasons for pressing the bonding versus earthing relates to the electrical system in my 490 year old stone cottage as well as 40 years experience in electronics and 9 years in industrial electrical control systems.

Two years ago the cottage and the attached shop were a single property supplied by a TT supply in the shop. I bought the cottage a year ago, one bedroom is over the shop as a flying lease which complicates the division of the property into two separate units.

I have had a new supply installed from the street and this is at present PME TN-C-S. Because I am PME and the shop is TT I have had to ensure there is at least a metre separation between anything earthed or bonded in my cottage and anything earthed or bonded in the shop. The DNO "require" this to ensure that in the event of a neutral failure in their network there is ( almost ) zero chance of the shop's CPC becoming the same voltage as my CPC and thus putting the people in the vicinity ( adjacent shops ) at risk from a raised ground potential as the shop's ground rod takes some of the current that the failed neutral would have been taking. The DNO stated specifically that there is no difference between bonding ( other than specifically earth free bonding ) and earthing. If it is bonded it MUST be assumed to be and treated as being earthed.

I am seriously considering changing my installation to a TT system with multiple RCDs. This is acceptable to the DNO and has also been accepted by the local authority in other buildings where it provides a safer installation. BS7671 requirements do not always fit the needs of older buildings and can in some case create a less safe installation.

Hi Rob, I'm in the processing of changing my DA Abacus 8 alarm with a Veritas R8. I've noticed from other posts that you've got PDF copies of installation manuals for this system and even though I've just ordered it today from 'Alert Electrical' I'd really appreciate if you could email me a PDF of the installation manual so that I can start reading it and working things out before it actually arrives. Many thanks.

If you give me your e-mail address I will send the original of the RCD trip circuit.

Hi there,
I notice that you have the Wintex software. Can you help me please.
I am installing a new premier 48 panel and my supplier has run out of the software disks. There have sent me it as a zip file, but when i come to run it, wintex asks for a user name and password to login. Is the a standard one i use?
kind regards
