July 28, 2008--SecuriTEST PRO from IDEAL Industries offers the multi-function CCTV testing platform of the original SecuriTEST introduced last year, along with new IRE video-level and sync testing, sound level assessment through an integrated speaker and on-screen display, and additional support for more pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) camera protocols. The new features are packaged in a lighter, more portable design that features a high-capacity lithium ion battery.
"We know from talking to our customers that saving money is their number one concern today," says Dan Payerle, product manager for IDEAL. "For that reason, we focused on providing more productivity from a single device. The new SecuriTEST PRO allows a technician to verify and troubleshoot a complete CCTV system, significantly reducing labor and overhead costs."
SecuriTEST PRO combines seven testers in one, allowing CCTV technicians to test video and sound, control PTZ cameras, analyze 20+ PTZ protocols, program PTZ and static cameras, wire-map UTP cables, generate video test patterns, and test electrical signals via a built-in digital multimeter.
New video and synch testing capabilities are designed to assure each camera is set to its correct video output level. Testing determines the overall level of an NTSC video signal (30-150 IRE) and its sync-to-white ratio (30-50 IRE). PAL video can also be measured from 200 to 1200 mV, and sync ratio from 200 to 320 mV.
In addition, an audio input on the tester lets you connect directly to a camera to sample audio through the tester's built-in speaker, or on its 2.5-inch color LCD screen as a visible level scale.
With an MSRP of $849, the SecuriTEST PRO kit includes tester, lithium battery pack (5.5 hours of operating time), AC adapter/charger, 12-volt auto charger, 4-foot BNC video cable, test leads for the digital multimeter, UTP cable terminator, neck strap, and carrying pouch.
