What types of monitor connections does the SM5200 system manager support?

Issue

A monitor needs to be connected directly to an SM5200 system manager.

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

SM5200 system manager, all versions

Cause

When an SM5200 is not connected directly to an Endura network, SSH cannot be used for troubleshooting. Instead, a keyboard and monitor must be connected directly to the unit.

Resolution

The SM5200 system manager supports two types of video connections:

  1. VGA. A blue, 15-pin connector. It is officially known as DE-15.
  2. DVI-D.  A white, 24-pin connector. DVI-D is the digital-only version of the DVI connector. Therefore, VGA-to-DVI adapters cannot be used on a DVI-D port.
