Honeywell’s VideoBloX matrix systems are uniquely flexible in their ability
to interface with many devices, while providing interconnectivity to highspeed
domes, pan-tilt zoom cameras, controllers, multiplexers, DVRs and other related
Interconnectivity is achieved using Protocol Interface Translators (PITs).
These devices are the true building blocks of the matrix system, converting the
native protocol of the Honeywell matrix to the protocol of the connected device.
Easy accessible DIP switches can be set to configure the PIT’s for specific
This flexibility extends itself to a full range of Honeywell Video devices,
as well as other manufacturers’ CCTV devices making Honeywell’s VideoBloX matrix
switch a truly integrated and adaptable solution to all retrofit applications
and CCTV environments.
The PIT slave
channel is the “incoming” channel and connects the matrix CPU (RS422 Master
Port) to the PIT. For larger systems using multiple PITs, the PIT slave channel
would be connected to the ports on a data port expander. The PIT master channel
connects directly to the device, or devices, being controlled.
The PIT slave channel, the connection to the matrix, is
RS422. The PIT master channel, the
connection to the connected device, is available as RS422.
Translators – PTZ
The PIT includes translators for Honeywell Video Domes, as
well as many other manufacturers' products such as Pelco, Hitachi, Panasonic,
Sensormatic, and others. As this list is continually changing, please

includes an I2C connector for various communications to I2C devices–either alarm
inputs or control outputs. This provides the capability to remotely install
alarm devices and connect to the Honeywell matrix switch via the PIT over RS422
