The TC telemetry receiver is used for telemetry controlling of a camera
PAN/TILT system and lens. The CAN bus connects all telemetry devices using the twisted
pair cable within the range of up to 1000m. Transmitter (for example: video multiplexer
TP16MD) sends a command to the CAN interface with the address of target device (TC), which
receives and executes it (for example: switches PAN/TILTS left rotational movement). The
TC telemetry receiver is controlled by 11 commands: LEFT, RIGHT, DOWN, UP, SCAN, ZOOM+,
ZOOM-, FOCUS+, FOCUS-, IRIS+, IRIS-.
The CAN Bus
All telemetry devices (TC telemetry receivers, TP multiplexers, KB1 external
keyboards) are connected using the CAN bus that consists of shielded twisted pair cable.
The transfer speed is 50 kBd. Maximum length of the bus is 1000m. Maximum length of one
stub is 60m and length of all stubs must not exceed 300m. The terminators 120 W are
required at the both ends of the bus. All devices must be connected to CAN bus by the
4-pins MINI DIN connector.
