LTC 8016/90 Description

The LTC 8016/90 Allegiant Bilinx Data Interface unit is an accessory used for communicating over-the-coax, with up to 16 Bilinx-capable AutoDome® and/or Dinion™ Series cameras. Compatible with all seven Allegiant Series matrix switcher/controllers, the LTC 8016 provides complete control of pan/tilt/zoom, auxiliaries, and pre-position functions of Bilinx enabled AutoDome Series cameras. In addition, complete programming of Dinion Series cameras and AutoDomes via their on-screen menus is supported.

LTC 8016/90 Functions

Bilinx technology also supports camera-generated event reporting to the Allegiant. This technology allows remote alarm inputs and motion event data to be sent to the Allegiant without the need for additional wiring between the camera site and the main control location.

The LTC 8016 is designed so that other Bi-Phase code generating products, like Bosch Digital Videos Recorders, can be used with the unit for control of PTZ functions and camera menu access over the video cable. This high level of flexibility provides a low cost per channel solution whenever control and configuration of remote cameras is needed.

With Bilinx technology, installation costs are reduced because no additional data communication cabling to the camera site is required. Installation time is also reduced; once the cameras and data cable to the LTC 8016 are connected, and its group ID number is set, all other internal settings are configured automatically.

Use of the LTC 8016 also reduces camera installation time because there is no need to set AutoDome site addresses. At initial connection of an AutoDome camera to the LTC 8016, its identification is automatically established. The LTC 8016 is supplied in an enclosure compatible with mounting in an EIA 48 cm (19 in.) rack, requiring only a 1-unit rack height. To support large systems, up to 31 units can be cascaded, comprising up to 496 Bilinx-compatible cameras.

The LTC 8016 can also be used to transmit Bilinx communications over a number of video transmission systems. Example devices include fiber optic links and external balun devices that use CAT5 twisted pair cables for video communication.

LTC 8016/90 Functions


Voltage Range 108 to 264 VAC, 50/60 Hz
Power at Rated Voltage 15 W
Maximum Video Signal Distances  
Coax Up to 300 m (1000 ft) using standard CCTV-grade RG-59U with copper center conductor and copper braided shield; up to 600 m (2000 ft.) using CCTV-grade RG-11 or RG-6.
Fiber Up to 600 m (2000 ft) using LTC 4630 and LTC 4631 Series fiber optic modules. Note: This distance includes the length of coax cables used between the devices and the fiber optic link.
