Pelco PEL-CM9740MXBL Matrix Bay Microprocessor-Based Switcher Controller 256 X 32


Our Price : $371.31

Product Code: PEL-CM9740MXBL


System 9740 is a full-featured video matrix switching control system for use in medium-sized CCTV installations. This system allows users to control a maximum of 256 cameras to 32 video monitors. The base configuration for this system is made up of a central processing unit (CC1), a matrix switching bay (MXB), and a keyboard controller (KBD). Optional components may be added to enhance system capabilities.

Pre-configured, pre-packaged systems make installation fast and simple. Each system is provided with Windows-based software for overall system programming. Powerful macro operation allows activation of commonly occurring events, either manually or automatically, based on time of day, day of week, day of year, and alarms. Macros may call system wide sequences (tours), activate pre-positions and auxiliaries on properly equipped cameras, automate VCR control, activate external relays to turn lights on, lock doors, or control other auxiliary functions (additional equipment may be required).

System 9740 also includes built-in video loss detection and system diagnostic features. Video loss detection monitors incoming video signals to alert operators of a camera failure. Diagnostic monitor output (VGA) is included to assist in set-up, programming, and troubleshooting.


The matrix switching bay is a card cage with 16 available card slots for video input modules and one card slot for a video output module (CM9740-VMC series). Each bay includes a power supply and will support modules for up to 256 camera inputs and 16 monitor outputs. A single matrix bay can be configured for up to 256 non-looping video inputs and 16 monitors (standard models) or 128 looping video inputs and 16 monitors ('S' models). A dual bay system can be configured for up to 256 non-looping inputs and 32 monitors (standard models) or 256 looping video inputs and 32 monitors ('L' models)
