RS-485 control command

RS-485 command table files


   CCTV camera connected with WJ-GXE100 is controlled with RS-485 communication.
   Pre-installed protocols in WJ-GXE100 are Panasonic, Pelco-D and Pelco-P.
   In other cases, select [Custom] for [Protocol] on the [RS485] tab of the

           - 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 has 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
