AXIS Q7411 Video Encoder
Ports & Devices
The Axis product provides four congurable input and output ports for connection of external devices. For information about
how to connect external devices, see Connectors on page 67.
To congure the I/O ports, go to System Options > Ports & Devices > I/O Ports. Each port can function as input or output:
• Input as Open circuit – The input becomes active when the circuit is grounded by, for example, a REX device. It remains
inactive as long as its normal state equals its current status.
• Input as Grounded circuit – The input becomes active when the circuit is opened by for example a monitor.
• Output as Open circuit – The output port is in a non-conductive state when its current status is open circuit. The current
status of an output port can be changed by, for example, an action rule.
• Output as Grounded circuit – The output port is in a conductive state when its current status is grounded circuit.
The Axis product has one RS-485/RS-422 serial port. The port supports the following modes:
• Generic HTTP allows the Axis product to receive data and send commands via HTTP.
• Pan Tilt Zoom is used to control a PTZ device. The PTZ device requires a driver. See Install PTZ Driver for more information.
Drivers can be downloaded from www.axis.com
• Generic TCP/IP allows the Axis product to receive data and send commands via TCP/IP.
Select the desired Port Type from the drop-down list. For more information, see the online help
The list on the System Options > Ports & Devices > Port Status page shows the status of the product’s input and output ports.
The Axis product provides several maintenance functions. These are available under System Options > Maintenance.

• the static IP address
• the default router
• the subnet mask
• the system time
• the IEEE 802.1X settings
• uploaded applications are kept but must be restarted
