Britain-Logo2The Nortek Remote Switch family moves into a new generation with the RS816 Sixteen camera remote switches. Sixteen Cameras can be switched to one or four monitors completely independently.

The system finds applications in installations where personnel are required to be able to view some or all of the security systems’ video channels without having access to the recording equipment. Covert cameras can be locked out by the setting of the control handset or made inaccessible through using a handset with less channels than the remote switch.

Note:- For each monitor output an RC Keyboard is required.

Nortek CCTV Remote Switcher

Designed for ease of installation, the RS816 family of switches can be assembled into a working system very quickly through the use of plug & socket connections for every interface. Cameras and Monitors are BNC Connected, whilst the controller handset is hard wired to terminal blocks. Power is 12vdc which is connected through a 3.5mm jack located on the main RS box. The controller handsets are powered through the control cable.

Backward compatibility is ensured because the RS816 family is designed to inter-operate with the legacy series of Nortek RS616 Family, therefore old and new RS switches and handsets can be re-used because the connections offered at the RJ45 sockets are also repeated as terminal blocks at both ends of the system.

The RS / RC Range consists of the following models and options.
