Pelco PEL-MPTA24DT Desktop Joystick Control for 24-VAC Pan/Tilt


Our Price : $259.77

Product Code: PEL-MPTA24DT


The MPT Series controls are designed for use with Pelco 24 VAC and 120 VAC pan/tilts. An 8-position joystick controls the up, down, left, right movements of a single pan/tilt. Movements can be controlled individually or simultaneously (i.e., left/down, left/up, etc.) by positioning the joystick diagonally between the two desired functions.

In addition to manual control and continuous auto scan operation, the MPTA Series are capable of Random Scan operation, a feature available only from Pelco. Random Scan is a significant advance in CCTV security/surveillance protection that makes continuous duty auto scan operation virtually obsolete. Random Scan is an effective deterrent to would-be intruders because it follows no predictable pattern. The scan direction varies randomly, as does the scanning time and dwell time (4 to 60 seconds). Random Scan makes it impossible for intruders to "beat the system" because it has none.

Random Scan is not only a powerful weapon to protect your premises, but it also increases your equipment life by over 100% while decreasing maintenance costs. Its shorter duty cycle reduces gear train and drive motor wear, cable fatigue, and motor temperature rise. Random Scan also offers you the flexibility of continuous auto scan option with a time delay that automatically returns operations to Random Scan after 30 minutes in continuous auto scan.



Pan/Tilt: 8-position joystick (Up, down, left, right and simultaneous combinations of pan/tilt functions when joystick is positioned diagonally between two functions)

Auto/Random Circuit: A noise generator drives a scan/dwell flip-flop which is logically anded with a direction flip-flop causing random scan and random dwell periods as well as random scan direction. Upon limit switch activation, a current sensing circuit detects the absence of the motor drive circuit and reverses scan direction
