For installation of VB-M600VE underneath eaves, observe the following precautions to retain
waterproof/dustproof capabilities.
• Be sure to install the camera underneath eaves unexposed to
direct sunlight.
• Install the camera in a place unexposed to direct rainfall.
• Firmly fix the dome case to the main unit of the camera with the
lock screws, taking care not to pinch cables between the main
unit and dome case.
• If wiring the camera through the wiring hole on the bottom, use
silicone sealant or a rubber mat to ensure waterproofing. Also
Position the
use an insect repellent sponge if necessary.

straight down
• If wiring with a composite pipe (NPT 3/4 inch threaded hole)
attached to the wiring hole, wrap teflon tape around the tip of the
pipe, clear any debris from the wiring hole and firmly tighten the
pipe. Apply silicone sealant after attaching the pipe.
• When mounting the camera onto a wall or other upright surface, position the wiring hole
straight down to prevent rain infiltration.

Thank you for purchasing Canon Network Camera VB-M600D/VB-M600VE (hereafter referred to as
the camera).
VB-M600D is designed for indoor use only. VB-M600VE can be installed underneath eaves.
Be sure to read “Installation Guide” (this document) and “VB-M700F/VB-M600D/VB-M600VE
Operation Guide” (included in the Setup CD-ROM) before use.
This “Installation Guide” explains the mounting method of the camera on a ceiling or wall and
the mounting method using the optional junction box mounting kit PS600-VB. Be sure to read the
“Safety Precautions” section for correct use. After reading this “Installation Guide”, keep it in a
readily accessible location for future reference.
For the installation of this camera recessed into a ceiling or wall using the recessed mounting kit
(optional), please read the “Recessed Mounting Kit SR600-VB Installation Guide” bundled with
the recessed mounting kit.
When using the heater unit (optional), please read the “Heater Unit HU600-VB User's Manual”
bundled with the heater unit.
The detailed procedures for using this camera are explained in the “VB-M700F/VB-M600D/
VB-M600VE Operation Guide”. Read these guides carefully before using the camera to ensure
correct use.
In some cases, camera monitoring may be prohibited by law or regulation, the details of which
differ by country or region. Before using the camera, check the laws or regulations of the country
or region where the camera is used.
• This installation should be made by a qualified service person and should conform to
all local codes.
• When installing on a ceiling, make sure the surface is capable of withstanding the total
weight of the camera and ceiling plates and is sufficiently reinforced if necessary.
• Periodically check the brackets and screws for rust and loose material to prevent
injuries and equipment damage due to falling items.

• Using the wrong settings in [Audio Input] may damage the camera and/or microphone. Be sure to
configure settings correctly.
• Microphone characteristics may affect volume and sound quality.
• Use RM Viewer to send audio to the speaker. VB-M600 Viewer cannot be used to send audio.
• Images and audio do not always synchronize properly.
• Audio may be interrupted depending on PC characteristics and network environment.
External device I/O terminals consist of two input and output systems each. VB-M600 Viewer
and RM Viewer can be used to check external device input status and control output to an
external device (see “Operating the External Device Output” and “Displaying Event Status” in the
“VB-M700F/VB-M600D/VB-M600VE Operation Guide”).

For VB-M600VE, secure the various cables with the cable clamps fastened to the camera to
prevent damage to cables or connectors due to vibration, etc.
*The diagram is a wiring example for VB-M600VE.
Adaptive wiring for external device cables
Solid conductor AWG: No. 28 – 22
Conductor size: Φ 0.32 – Φ 0.65 mm (Φ 0.013 – Φ 0.026 in.)
Cable strip should be approx. 8 – 9 mm (0.31 – 0.35 in.).

Cable Wiring Method
12 VDC or 24 VAC input can be used.
Connect the bundled power connector as shown below.
Safety wire attachment
When using the AC adapter PA-V17 (optional), cut the cable tie and remove
the ferrite core. Be sure not to damage the power cable when cutting the
cable tie.

• The camera can also be connected to an AC adapter (optional) while receiving power from a PoE
HUB. In such cases, the PoE power supply is given priority, and the camera does not use the power
supply from the AC adapter (optional). When the PoE power supply is disconnected, power is supplied
automatically from the AC adapter (optional). Midspan (a LAN cable power supply device) is a device
that, like a PoE HUB, supplies power to the camera via a LAN cable.

• Insert the SD memory card before attaching the dome case.
When using an external power supply, guide the power interface cable through the wiring
hole. Guide the I/O interface cable and the audio interface cable (bundled) through the wiring
hole if necessary.
• When the camera is connected to a switching HUB, changing the connection while the camera is
operating may cause the HUB learning function to interfere with communication. Do not change the
connection when the camera is operating.
Using an SD Memory Card
The load connected to the output terminals should be within the following rating range.
Rating between output terminals:

• Some PoE HUBs allow current limits for each port, but applying limits may interfere with performance. If
using this type of PoE HUB, do not limit the operating current.
• Check with your Canon sales representative for more information about PoE HUB and Midspan
Removing the card
Use a box cutter to cut a cross shape into the wiring hole cover in order to guide cables
through. Do not remove the wiring hole cover.
External device output terminals consist of two sets (OUT1, OUT2) of two terminals. The sets have
no polarity. Controls from the viewer can be used to switch between electrical continuity and
insulation from one terminal to the next. Using optical couplers, the output terminals are isolated
from the camera's internal circuit.

Push the SD memory card as far as possible into the SD card
slot with the label facing outward.
Power can be supplied to the camera in the three ways described below.
The camera supports PoE functions. Power can be supplied to the camera by using a LAN cable
to connect it to a PoE HUB that conforms to the IEEE 802.3af standard.

Be sure to remove the 6 pieces of orange tape that
prevent lens rotation during shipping. If the tape is
not removed, the camera will not operate correctly.

Remove the 4 pieces of tape that prevent lens rotation during shipping, and push the inner
cover in the direction of the arrows to remove it. Then remove the 2 pieces of tape attached to
the base of the lens.

• Images and audio can be distributed to up to 30 clients. However, audio may be interrupted when
distributing to many clients.
• Audio may be interrupted when using antivirus software.
• Connecting and disconnecting the LAN cable interrupts the audio. Use the viewer to reconnect.
J External Device Input Terminals (IN1, IN2)
External device input terminals consist of two sets (IN1, IN2) of two terminals, with the negative
terminal connected to the camera interior GND. Connect two cables to the positive and negative
terminals. When electrical continuity or insulation is created between the terminals, the viewer will
be notified of either status.
• When connecting sensors and switches, connect terminals that are electrically isolated from the
respective power and GND.
• Do not push the external device I/O terminal button with too much force. Doing so may cause the button
to remain pushed-in.
