Installation of TXB translators.

Resolution

To install the TXB translator board in an Esprit system (refer to Figure 1):

1. Turn off power to the Esprit system.

2. Remove the left cover from the pan and tilt.

3. Remove the shorting plug from the 16-pin connector on the Esprit system’s circuit board.

4. Remove the nut and washer from the standoff on the Esprit system’s circuit board.

NOTES: Discard the 6-32 and 4-40 screws and their lock washers; they are not used in the Esprit system. Save the 16-pin shorting plug. Otherwise, the Esprit cannot be converted back to a Pelco-controlled system.

• All TXB in a daisy chain, except the last unit, must be unterminated.

• The total wire distance from the controller to the last TXB in a daisy chain must be less than 4,000 ft (1,219 m).

• A maximum of 10 receivers can be installed on a single daisy chain.

5 Set the other DIP switches on the TXB translator board to the proper settings

6. Install the TXB on the Esprit circuit board (refer to Figure 3):

 

a. Insert the 16-pin connector on the bottom of the TXB  into the mating 16-pin connector on the Esprit circuit board.

b. Reinstall the nut and washer on the standoff to secure the TXB to the Esprit circuit board.

7. Set the DIP switches on the Esprit system

7. Reinstall the left cover of the pan and tilt: See Figure 4

 

WARNING:

Make sure you seal the unit. Otherwise, moisture could disable or damage the Esprit system

a. Properly position the cover and slide it into place. The sides of the cover must fit under the front and back rain guards of the pan and tilt. The top of the cover must seat against the lip of the top gasket. (Refer to Figure 4.)

  To install the TXB translator board in a Spectra III/Spectra IV Series:

1. Turn off power to the dome system.

2. Remove the lower dome.

3. Remove the dome drive by pressing in the blue and red tabs on the sides of the dome drive. Gently rock the dome drive to release it from the back box.

4. Set the proper termination setting on the DIP switch on the TXB See Figure 6

 

 NOTE:

• All TXB in a daisy chain, except the last unit, must be unterminated.

• The total wire distance from the controller to the last TXB in a daisy chain must be less than 4,000 ft (1,219 m).

• A maximum of 10 receivers can be installed on a single daisy chain.

5. Set the other DIP switches on the TXB translator board to the proper settings

6. Install the TXB translator board into the back box:

a. Open the hinged door to the back box. Push the tab lock towards the back box wall of the unit and open the door (refer to Figure 7).

 b. Check the wiring to the controller. Refer to the Spectra III/Spectra IV documentation and the documentation supplied with your controller to make sure the wiring is correct.

 

c. Remove the shorting plug from the 16-pin connector located on the back box circuit board (refer to Figure 8).

 

Notes:

Discard the 4-40 screw and its lock washer; they are not used in the Spectra III/Spectra IV system. • Save the 16-pin shorting plug. Otherwise, the Spectra III/Spectra IV cannot be converted back to a Pelco-controlled system.

d. Insert the TXB board into the 16-pin connector located on the back box circuit board.Secure the translator board to the standoff on the circuit board using the supplied 6-32 screw and lock washer.

e. Close the interconnect door. Snap the tab lock into place.

7. Set the DIP switches on the Spectra III/Spectra IV system
