The camera controller board is designed to provide necessary functionality to control 4 cameras and lights used in subsea intervention systems.
The board has analogue outputs for light control, controllable power outputs for camera power, motor driver outputs suitable for camera functions (Zoom/Focus) and water alarm input. It is also fitted with a 4 to 1 video multiplexer and drivers for controlling 4 external relays (typically light relays). The camera power outputs are fitted with electronic resettable fuses. Relays are provided for camera outputs (power and zoom/focus) to be able to isolate the outputs in case of water leakage in external camera cables.
Remote control is possible via RS232 or multi drop RS484 communication. Several units can be controlled over a single RS485 network.
