Honeywell’s UltraKey Lite® keyboard is an industry-leading design for
reliable, user-friendly control of video management systems. It works on both
the MAXPRO-Net and VideoBloX Matrix controllers to provide a uniform user
interface regardless of system controller.
The UltraKey Lite incorporates a touch wheel for rapid camera selections and
digital or networked video recorder control, and a touch ring with four keys for
various functions. Dedicated DVR/NVR buttons are programmable for device
control. Laser cut keys with blue backlight provide a fade-free, familiar QWERTY
keyboard feel and the rubber wrist pad is user replaceable.
Multiple control interfaces include TCP/IP, RS232, RS422 and RS485 through
convenient RJ45 connector. A breakout box is available to convert to screw
terminal or DB9 for RS232, and a USB port is also available for future
connection options. The DC power supply connector uses a unique twist-lock
mechanism to prevent accidental unplugging. Power over Ethernet (PoE) option is
also available. The UltraKey Lite has its own web browser for simple
configuration and firmware upgrades.
The UltraKey Lite has a two-line LCD that offers system feedback and
simple keyboard configuration, and a 3-axis variable speed joystick with twist
zoom controls variable speed PTZ mechanisms. The addition of focus controls on
the left and right of the joystick allows either left or right-handed persons to
use the controller effortlessly.
In VideoBloX mode, 20 function keys are available for sequence triggering or
groups and scenes. In addition, the Mon A, Mon B, Tour and MUX keys trigger
specific sequences in the VideoBloX CPU.
In MAXPRO-Net mode, standard keys such as PTZ call, alternate camera
selection, sequence selection, tours, mux selection and NVR control functions
are present. Through MAXPRO-Net Setmax, each key can be intercepted and the
desired function programmed using macros.
For both MAXPRO-Net and VideoBloX
CPU matrix options, the UltraKey Lite provides a real-time intuitive method of
control for small to large matrix opportunities. The UltraKey Lite is a mid-tier
keyboard option for MAXPRO-Net systems with added advantages of TCP/IP
connectivity and the option to use RS422 for remote applications. This
eliminates the need for external RS422 adapters, especially when used in
conjunction with the MegaPIT™.
The UltraKey Lite is a direct replacement to the HEGS5BLX or PCK variants for
the VideoBloX and VideoBloX Lite CPUs. With the VideoBloX NetCPU, the TCP/IP
option offers connectivity over a LAN.
