Model Description:
Extended Distance 4 Channel RS-422 Interface for JVC RM-LP55 Base Unit.

Model Details

The Model 55 is designed to enhance the operation of the RM-LP55 camera control unit (CCU) when used on JVC professional video cameras. This device operates with any JVC camera with the RM-LP55 CCU interface. The Model 55 uses a simple four-wire bi-directional RS-422 interface to extend the operating distance from 15 feet to up to 2000 feet between the CCU and the remoted camera. The Model 55 allows one to concurrently perform CCU functions on up to four (4) cameras at a time. This equipment can operate remoted fixed camera stations or cameras on JVC pan and tilt systems. On pan and tilt systems the pan and tilt controller controls the lens functions on the camera, the CCU performs the balance of the camera settings. Operation of the CCU does not interfere with commands from the pan and tilt system. On fixed camera systems the CCU controls all functions on the camera.

The Model 55 consists of the "Base" chassis at the control room side of a camera system and small “Cam” module at each of the remoted cameras, and associated cables. The cable interface between the remote chassis and the camera module is a single four conductor twenty-six gauge, non-shielded cable to each camera station. The base chassis is provided with an A/C power adapter. The camera modules obtain power from their respective cameras.

The base chassis is provided with mounting feet and can be placed on any flat surface. The camera modules are supplied with double-sided adhesive tape. This tape provides a secure mount at the camera, either directly on the camera or in the vicinity of the camera.

The Model 55 can be ordered configured for between one and four cameras. The model designation is Model 55-X, where X is the number of remote camera modules required (maximum of four). Cables for each of the camera stations need to be ordered separately, part numbers for the cables are 960379-XXX; where XXX is the length in feet.
