What is the Spectra Device ID when connecting to an Axis decoder?

Issue

What is the device ID# of a Spectra camera when connecting to an Axis encoder? Where can I find it?

Product Line

Other, Pelco Cameras

Environment

  • Spectra III
  • Spectra IV
  • Axis Encoder

Cause

The Axis encoder is asking for a Spectra camera device ID #,  up to 3 - digits in length, when attempting to connect the camera and Axis encoder

Resolution

The device ID # refers to the Spectra cameras address. This is derived from the switch settings on SW1, which refers to a binary address.

      examples: (device ID/address followed by switch settings)

  • 1   -  switch 1 is on, all others are off
  • 3   -   switches 1 & 2 are on, all others are off
  • 12 -   switches 3 & 4 are on, all others are off
  • 110 - switches 2, 3, 4, 7, & 8 are on, all others are off
