Lilin PIH-7000PF PTZ Dome Camera Protocol

Post by karimba » Wed Sep 22, 2010 12:05 pm

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone is using some type of Lilin PTZ dome cameras successfully with ZM 1.24.2.

Seems the control is their own mlp2.

Cheers

Sorted :D
Seems it uses version 1 of the Merit Li-lin protocol which is only 3 bytes long.
I'm working on a script for it now.

Nice chap at lilin uk set me on the right path.

cheers

Here's my control script for the Merit Lilin ptz cameras, it's their V1 protocol which i believe is fairly old.
It has basic control, left - right, up - down, focus, zoom, White balance etc.



cheers

Hi man, if you still have this protocol description lying anywhere, that would be awesome.

I don't even need the script or code, just the ICD or some docs.

Thanks!

Hi,

I managed to get the document from the original producer. If anyone would need it, please contact me over this forum. Seems i can not upload the file.
The protocol is 3 byte MLP1.

Example for moving pan on ID1.
0x010181

Camera is PIH-7000/7600 Rs485
Tricky to get it running, specialy because the addresing of the camera microswitches is just stupid.
1 and 8 need to be ON to be on address 1

This was the main problem for me after i got the docs...
