Product Code: PEL-VS5008-S

DISCONTINUED (NOT IN STOCK). Replacement part number VS5108.

The VS5004/VS5008 are low cost, desktop, sequential switchers designed to switch four or eight cameras manually or automatically to one or two monitors and to respond automatically to alarm inputs.

The VS5004 is shipped as a homing unit (one monitor output) and can be converted to a bridging unit (two monitor outputs). The VS5008 has an added bridging ampli?er that allows the VS5008 to function as a "homing" or "bridging" unit without the need for conversion. If the MON2 output only is used, the VS5008 functions as a "homing" unit. If both MON1 and MON2 outputs are used, it functions as a "bridging" unit.

In the alarm condition, the VS5004/VS5008 will automatically switch and hold on the alarmed input and provide a signal to activate auxiliary equipment, such as a VCR. The alarmed condition will remain only as long as alarm closure remains. If multiple alarms occur, the VS5004/VS5008 will switch between the alarmed inputs at a rate of approximately 5 seconds.

The VS5104/VS5108 have the same features as the VS5004/VS5008 except they are desktop homing switchers having one monitor output, no alarm capability, and cannot be rack mounted.

All models feature terminating inputs (which can easily be converted to looping inputs for applications requiring looping switchers), adjustable dwell (from 1-70 seconds), vertical interval switching, and bypass capability. They are powered by U.L. Listed external wall transformers (included).
