Resolution

When experiencing no control or intermittent control of the Esprit SE PTZ camera, verify that DIP Switch 3 on SW2 is set to the “ON” position.

Setting DIP Switch 3 on SW2 to “ON” enhances Coaxitron communication and addresses problems with P and D protocol as well. If there are problems with control or behavior such as stopping when a pattern or preset has been called, please first check to make sure DIP switch 3 on SW2 is set to the “ON” position.

Update: Setting DIP Switch 3 on SW2 to "ON" may work with other 3rd party applications such as Dedicated Micros and other manufacturers' equipment.
