DESCRIPTION
The EX14 All Environment Camera consists of a twopiece injection molded watertight housing with a tough
polycarbonate viewing window. This compact camera
meets IP66 ratings for applications wherever
environmentally sealed CCD cameras are required. The
camera is especially suited for wash down applications
in food processing and industrial clean-room
installations.
The EX14 can be ordered in monochrome or color
versions, featuring varifocal and auto-iris IR-optimized
lenses. A rigid nylon mounting bracket is also included
with the camera.
A voltage regulator circuit allows for 12V dc or 24V ac
operation and a range in between. It also provides
protection from voltage surge, transient spikes, and
reverse voltage.
The EX14N comes with integrated Infra-Red illumination
to permit imaging in 0 Lux conditions
The EX14 is available in several models to meet
individual requirements or specific needs.

INITIAL PREPARATIONS
• The camera’s voltage regulator board
(VRB) accepts an input voltage of either
12Vdc or 24Vac, and a range in-between,
from a regulated power supply.
• The VRB automatically switches between
ac or dc inputs, therefore no internal wiring
changes are necessary to accommodate
these input voltages.
• Determine the optimum location for the
camera.
Section 1: Camera Mounting
• All cameras have been tested prior to
shipment.

1. CAMERA MOUNTING
Caution: Install the mounting bracket with the
appropriate screws or drywall anchors to suit the
mounting surface. Select a suitable location that is
protected from accidental damage or tampering, and
environmental conditions that could exceed the
camera’s general specifications.
See page 18.
Caution: Ensure the selected location is protected from
falling objects, accidental contact with moving objects,
and unintentional interference from personnel. Follow
all applicable building codes.
The following installation guidelines
must be followed:
•
Locate the camera such that it cannot be easily
interfered with, either intentionally or accidentally.
•
Select a mounting surface capable of supporting
the combined weight of the camera and its
mounting hardware under all expected conditions of
vibration and temperature.
•
Secure all cabling.

4. CAMERA/ LED ARRAY ADJUSTMENTS
Focus and Zoom Adjustments
Loosen and tilt back the camera’s top cover to
access the lens for adjustment.
Step 3.1 -
Loosen the lens setscrews
for focus/zoom adjustments.
See Figure 4-1 on page 13.
Step 3.2 -
The setscrew for N ←→ ∞
is used for image focus.
Step 3.3 -
The setscrew for T←→ W
is used for telephoto or wideangle settings.
Step 3.4 -
Re-tighten the setscrews after
focus adjustments have been
completed.
The LED Array brightness has been set at the
factory before shipment.
For photocell brightness adjustment refer to
Figure 3-2 on page 11.

Use a Neutral Density filter or Infra-Red Pass filter to cover
the lens during focusing to simulate low light conditions on
scene for correct 24-hour focusing. For camera with varifocal lens, the camera should be focused with the lens iris
fully opened to simulate the worst possible depth of field.
Using a Neutral Density filter or Infra-Red Pass filter will
ensure the iris is fully open for correct setup and adjustment.
Note that statement above is applicable only for Day/Night
or IR version cameras.

POSSIBLE
CAUSE
1. Power Supply:
-Connections….
-Voltage Range...
LIKELY SOLUTION
Check input power
connections at the
cable leads.
Check for loose wires.
If connected to DC,
check input voltage
range of 12 – 24V.
If connected to AC,
check input voltage
range of 12 – 24V.
Measure the voltage
and current at the
Input Power Cable.
The current should be
>.02A and <1.0A.

No Video
(cont’d.)
2. Video
Connections
Determine if wiring
polarity at “Video
Connector” terminal
block is correct.
Check the cable
and BNC
connector.
If still no video,
connect the camera
directly to the
monitor. Check the
video signal. If
okay, the problem
is with the
interconnections. If
still no video,
contact BOSCH
Service Center.
