No video in a CST100, CST150 when connected to a Sarix camera.

Issue

  • I am unable to get video out of the Service Jack on my Sarix camera. Isn't the Service Jack supposed to give me video?
  • How come I get no video when looking through my CST150 when connected to a Sarix camera?

Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

CST100/CST150

Sarix cameras of all models and firmware versions (IX, IE, ID, IM, IMP, IME)

Cause

The CST100/150 is NOT designed for use with the Sarix Service Jack as the wiring of the service cable is backwards.

Resolution

The Sarix cameras require the use of the IX-SC cable. The CST100 or CST150 view finders were for the fixed analog cameras and are NOT compatible with the Sarix cameras.
