RS-485 control command

RS-485 command table files


CCTV camera connected with WJ-GXE100 and WJ-GXE500 are controlled with RS-485 communication.
Pre-installed protocols in WJ-GXE100 and WJ-GXE500 are Panasonic, Pelco-D and Pelco-P. In other cases, select [Custom] for [Protocol] on the [RS485] tab of the [image] page and upload the command table with FTP to the unit.

As a default setting, Panasonic command table files for PT control "SPEED_256" (velocity resolution: 256) for CCTV cameras have already stored in WJ-GXE100 and WJ-GXE500.

        - Command table settings are initialized when the unit is initialized.
          In this case, upload the command tables again as necessary.
 
        - A file name of command table:[camera_serial0.conf] is only valid.
          When the file name is changed, the unit cannot be operated.

Writing/editing of RS485 command table
 
To control other than Panasonic CCTV camera, Pelco-D and Pelco-P compatible cameras, command tables are necessary to write/edit and upload to the unit.
We do not take any responsibility for written/edited command tables.
 
 
Following information is just for reference.
 
A file name of command table:[camera_serial0.conf] is only valid.
When the file name is changed, the unit cannot be operated.

<COMMON>
[1] Lines begin with [=] are commentary. They have no effect for RS485 control to the unit.
[2] File size for RS485 command table is limited not to exceed 20KB each file.


<CAMERA INFORMATION>
- CAMERA TYPE
  Set [PANASONIC] for Panasonic CCTV cameras, [PELCO D Protocol] for Pelco-D 
  compatible cameras.
  [RON:7] command is transmitted when [PANASONIC] is set and [2-line] is selected as 
  RS485 communication.

- VER
- PAN_TILT_SPEED
- ZOOM_SPEED
  These have no effects for RS485 control to the unit.
  These are intended for administrative information in editing RS485 command table.

- DATA_FORMAT
  Set [TEXT] for ASCII data communication, or [BIN] for binary data communication.

- ADDRESS
  This has no effect for RS485 control to the unit.
  Set [Unit address] in accordance with a unit number of controlled CCTV camera.

<SET UP A PRESET POSITION>
<SET UP A AUTO FOCUS>
<SET UP A AUTO PAN MODE>
<SET UP A BLACK AND WHITE(COLOR) MODE>
<SET UP A MAINTENANCE MENU>
<SET UP A PAN&TILT&ZOOM&FOCUS&IRIS>
<OTHER>

- Left part(hereinafter, command key) and right part(hereinafter, data part) should be
  connected by [=].
- When the unit is operated, relevant command keys are selected. 
- Command keys cannot be modified.
- Data part which corresponds to the selected command key will be transmitted. When any changes are required in 
  transmitted data, edit the data part.
- [%x…%] means hexadecimal. For example, [%x02%] means [STX(0x02)].
- Following alternative characters may be set for variable number as data parts.
     %addr%        Replaced by [Unit address] in setup menu
     %pn4b%        Replaced by [PAN speed] as 4-bit value: 1 character
     %pn8b%        Replaced by [PAN speed] as 8-bit value: 2 characters
     %tl4b%         Replaced by [TILT speed] as 4-bit value: 1 character
     %tl8b%         Replaced by [TILT speed] as 8-bit value: 2 characters
     %zm4b%        Replaced by [ZOOM speed] as 8-bit value: 2 characters
     %pr8b%         Replaced by [PRESET number] as 8-bit value: 2 characters
     %pr12b%       Replaced by [PRESET number] as 12-bit value: 3 characters
     %bcc(x,y)%    Replaced by [CHECKSUM]. x means start position, y means end position.
                   x and/or y can be omitted

- Operation may be added in alternative characters as necessary.
  For example, [%pr8b+0xFF%]
    RS485 control specification of Panasonic CCTV cameras requires [A-1] command 
    transmission to move to [PRESET A], thus [%pr8b+0xFF%] is used by adding [0xFF].

Command transmission in serial port (RS485 compliant)

WJ-GXE100 and WJ-GXE500 have a following function: Data received from PC in UDP 52000 port can be sent to
serial port (RS485 compliant). Arbitrary command from PC may be dynamically transmitted to
analog camera. [RS485] settings on [RS485] tab of [Camera] page are applied as communication
settings.
