These Composite Video Switches are controlled either locally with a 3-position DIP switch, or remotely through a 6-pin mini-DIN style connector.
A status output port (6-pin mini-DIN) may be used to slave another switch with remote capability, or to trigger other equipment used for video monitoring purposes.
This feature is often useful in audio-follow-video applications. The control input port may be used to control the switch from a remote location.
The control input port features optically isolated control bits, which helps in ground loop interference prevention, as well as, allowing reference potential differences between the controller and the video switch.
The remote control feature can be configured to operate with a variety of control methods, including contact closure, and TTL type control signals.

This unit has a non-isolated internal switcher power supply (FlexPWR). The unit will operate correctly on 10-28 VAC or 10-32 VDC. The power input is protected so power can be applied in either polarity. The supply provides the internal electronics with power with the ground of the video circuits being the same as the input power ground. The power connector is a 2-pin 2.5mm terminal block with detent retention that can support high vibration environments.
The package for this unit consists of a solid epoxy block. The internal electronics are assembled and tested before the encapsulation process. During the encapsulation the printed circuit board(s) are placed in a five sided box made of RTV mold parts. The cavity is filled with epoxy and the lid (top) of the mold is inserted. The curing process takes 24 hours. This type of package seals the electronics so water and contamination cannot affect the internal electronics. This type of package also provides superior resistance to shock and vibration compared to a metal or plastic box enclosure.
