Connecting the Camera
Power Connection
Power can be supplied to the camera in the three ways described as follows.
 PoE (Power over Ethernet)
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.
Important
•Check with your dealer for more information about PoE HUB and Midspan technology.
•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.
•Some PoE HUBs have total consumption current limits for ports, which can interfere with performance
when multiple ports are in use. For more information, check the instruction guide for your PoE HUB.
•Use a category 5 or higher cable 100 m (328 ft.) or less in length for the LAN cable that connects the
camera and the PoE HUB.
•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.
•The camera can also be connected to an AC adapter (sold separately) 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 (sold separately). When the PoE power supply is disconnected,
power is supplied automatically from the AC adapter (sold separately). Midspan (a LAN cable power
supply device) is a device that, like a PoE HUB, supplies power to the camera via a LAN cable.
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 open and close the circuit between the
terminals. Using optical couplers, the output terminals are isolated from the camera's internal
circuit.
The load connected to the output terminals should be within the following rating range.
Rating between output terminals:

Audio Input/Output Terminals
Each audio input/output terminal has one input system and one output system.
Connecting the camera to an audio input/output device such as a microphone or a speaker with
an amplifier allows you to send/receive audio through the viewer.
 Audio Input Dual LINE IN/MIC IN (monaural input)
Although the camera has a single audio input system, it supports two types of microphone input:
LINE IN and MIC IN. Before using the audio input, change [Audio Input] on the Setting Page (see
“Operation Guide” > “Audio Input”). LINE IN is selected by default.
Input terminal: 3.5 mm ( 0.14 in.) mini jack (monaural)
•Dynamic MIC IN

•The power supply should be within the following voltage range.
•24 V AC: Voltage fluctuation within ±10% of 24 V AC (50 Hz or
60 Hz ±0.5 Hz or less)
Current supply capacity of at least 1.0 A per camera
•12 V DC: Voltage fluctuation within ±10% of 12 V DC
Current supply capacity of at least 1.5 A per camera
•When using a 12 V DC battery power supply, be sure to connect
resistors of at least 0.5 – 1.0 Ω/20 W in series to the power line.
•For an external power supply, use a double-insulated device.
Important
•Using incorrect settings for [Audio Input] may damage the camera and/or microphone. Be sure to
configure the settings correctly.
•Microphone characteristics may affect volume and sound quality.
•Images and audio do not always synchronize properly.
•Audio may be interrupted depending on PC characteristics and network environment.
•Video and audio can be streamed to up to 30 clients. However, audio may be interrupted when
streaming to many clients or using SSL.
•Audio may be interrupted when using antivirus software.
•Connecting and disconnecting the LAN cable interrupts the audio. Use the viewer to reconnect.
