Ikegami ICPP

Compatible cameras

If you camera has a RS422 control with 8 pins PRC05-PB8M connector, it should work.

Supported models:

  • Ikegami HDK-79EX
  • Ikegami HDK-79GX
  • Ikegami HDK-73
  • Ikegami HDK-97
  • Ikegami HDK-99

We don't support any of the 55 (hdk-55, FA-55, etc.). The 55 was an entry level camera system where not all features were installed and it can't be controlled through the serial port from what Ikegami told us.

Camera wiring

The connector is pricey, difficult to find, so we don't sell it. You can follow this wiring guide to combine our CY-CBL-6P-FAN and the connector to make your own cable.

Camera configuration

Configure the camera in RS422, with one-way remote control data (U4) with 38400 baudrate:

  • Engineering Menu > COMMAND MODE : select U4(38400)

RCP configuration

Set up a new camera via the RCP Configuration UI:

  • Enter a custom number, name, etc.
  • Select Ikegami brand
  • Select ICPP for the model
  • Select your CI0 and port : CI0 21-96 on port 1 in my case

This should look like this:

And once correctly connected, it should be green:
