About the external control
This monitor has three external control terminals.
(1) Make (make contact) system:
Controls the monitor by
(2) Trigger (trigger) system:
Controls the monitor by sending the pulse signal instantaneously to the corresponding pin terminal.
☞“Using the Make/Trigger system” below
Set the following items of “Remote Setting” in
The settings of this unit
*1 For a monitor connected to a personal computer etc, select the terminal the equipment is actually connected to. For other monitors, select “RS485.”
Control priority is as follows.
Make > Trigger = serial communication = buttons and menu on the monitor
●You can use external control even when “Control Lock” is set to “Volume Lock” or “All Lock” (☞ page 19).
●When the monitor is off (on standby), external control is not available. But certain external controls (starting/terminating communication, turning on the monitor) are available through the serial communication (☞ page 24).
You can control the monitor by a personal computer or dedicated controller*2.
●“Using the Make/Trigger system” below.
*2 The controller is not commercially available. Consult your dealer if you need it.
●For the details, see page 23.
Using the Make/Trigger system
The Make/Trigger terminal is configured as follows. You can assign a function to each pin terminal in “Remote Setting” (☞ “Pin1, Pin2, Pin3, Pin4, Pin5” in “Parallel Type” on page 18).
●You cannot change the functions assigned to the pin terminals from 6th to 8th.
This is a female terminal.
The 6th pin terminal controls turning on or off the tally lamp
(available to control even when the 7th pin terminal is invalid).
The 7th pin terminal makes the external control valid/invalid. Make
sure to control the terminal by the Make system.
For the operation procedure, see page 12.
