If you have a CCTV Security Tester or want to install a CCTV, you need to know some info about CCTV Tester to help you to test the CCTV(Closed circuit television) .This article is some info about CCTV Tester guide.
CCTV Tester Product Introduction:
CCTV Security Tester is a kind of multi-function test tool for CCTV and security camera installation professionals. CCTV Camera Tester is developed aiming to CCTV security system installation and maintenance, combining the following function: Optical Fiber Communication test, low power circuit test, video test and PTZ control, and DC12 1A output for camera test, etc. Helps solving varies problem of security system. It could be also used in laboratory tests, equipment maintenance, etc. CCTV Tester is really an ideal multi-function instrument for CCTV Security System, Fiber Optical Communication, CATV and other fiber optic networks.
Some Precaution with CCTV Tester:
1.Precaution before using the tester
A. Make sure to read the user’s manual before using the product.
B. Make sure to check the input and output range of voltage or current at every input and output ports before connecting, so that the system cannot be overloaded.
C. The following operational environment should be maintained constantly:
- Temperature: -30℃—70℃
- Relative humidity: 30% ~ 90%
- Recharging voltage: 9V —12V
2.Precautions when using the tester
A. Do not use the tester in damp humidity or leaking gas environments.
B. Do not touch the tester with wet hands.
C. Be mindful not to shock or shake the tester while in use to avoid damage.
D. Avoid the places of strong magnetism or electric wave, which could cause incorrectmeasuring.
E. Be careful not to expose the ports or joints to dirt or liquid.
F. Do not disassemble the tester.
3.Precautions for battery charging and using
A. Use only original chargeable battery with the tester, when charge the batteries, please use the original power adapter.

C. Do not short-circuit or disassemble batteries.
CCTV Tester Features and function:
A. Video test
The video signal and the quality of picture can be tested.
B. PTZ controlling
It has the basic operational test of PTZ products, function include pan/tilt, zoom in/out,preset setting and operation, speed adjustment etc; support multi-protocol and baudrate, communication via RS-232, RS422 simplex and RS485 port.
RS485 protocol provided with the CCTV Tester include: Pelco D,Pelco P, Samsung, Panasonic, Molynx. Additional Protocols may be added as per customer requests.
Baud rate include: 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200.
C. Power to camera
The CCTV Tester has a DC 12V output rated at 400mA max for providing power to the camera. This will make camera testing using the CCTV Tester an easier task.
D. Digital Multi-meter
The CCTV Tester Multi-Meter function provides for AC/DC voltage and resistance to be measured providing the installer with additional diagnostic capability for finding and localizing faults.
E.Videp signal attenuation analyzing
The CCTV Tester can analyse the video signal and display peak and average video signal level and sync pulse level to determine whether the video signal level is at the optimum level for displaying a good picture in sync and for determing cable losses.
F. UTP cable test
The wiring condition (disconnected, short of UTP cable) can be tested and show inthe screen clearly.
G. Video signal generating
It can output Green, white Black and Blue screen to allow technician to inspect videomonitor or DVR. The generating signal support PAL or NTSC (don’t support bothmeanwhile) format.
H. RS485 data test
It can test the RS485 data sent from controlling device, display the hexadecimal datacontent for engineer to analyze
Power And Battery Operation Introduction:
A. The power slide switch is located at the side of the tester. Turn the power slide switch on to power on the tester, to press the Power more than 3 seconds to make it turn into sleeping mode.
B. Press the Power more than 3 seconds to turn on the tester after it turning to sleeping mode.
C. Press the Power less than 1 second to shut off the OSD menu.
D. Turn the power slide switch off to power off the tester.
E. The batteries should be plugged in over 5 hours for full charge, when charged the Charge Indicating LED will on.
F. After full charging, the Charge Indicating LED light will glitter and the charging work can stop automatically.
G. The charged batteries can operate for 5 hours or more.
H. When the battery indicator in system information menu shows 25 (the status number includes 100, 90, 75, 50, 25, 5), please recharge it for use.
I. The tester can be used when it is being charged.
For more other testers info, pls focus on Fiber Optic Test ,it has many testing tutorial in this part. Fiberstore not only provide the fiber tester, but also has some fiber optic tools.Such as crimping tool,wire cutter,punchdown tool.
