3.4 Connecting Power Supply
Please check input voltage and device power button match or not.
We recommend you use UPS to guarantee steady operation, DVR life span, and
other peripheral equipments operation such as cameras.
3.5 Connecting Video Input and Output Devices
3.5.1 Connecting Video Input
The DVR automatically detects the video standard (PAL or NTSC) whenever you
connect a video input. It accepts both color and black-and-white and analog video.
NOTE:
z Enabling line lock on cameras may cause video distortion. There may be noise in
the camera’s power source. If video from one or more cameras is distorted, we
recommend you disable line lock on the camera as your first troubleshooting step.
z If a video distribution amplifier is installed between the video source and the DVR,
do not set the output video level above 1 Vp-p.
To connect each video input:
1. Connect a coaxial cable to the camera or other analog video source.
2. Connect the coaxial cable to the video in connector on the rear panel.
Please refer to Figure 3-1 for more information.
NOTE:
You need to use a BNC installation tool to connect coaxial cables to the rear panel.
349H
Figure 3-1
3.5.2 Connecting Video Output
This section provides information about physically connecting video display devices
to the DVR. See Figure 3-2.
If you connect the DVR with a TV monitor or VGA monitor, the DVR can automatically
detects the monitor type. And without any output device, by default, the DVR is
configured to use a TV monitor. In this case, if your application requires a VGA
monitor, you have to press the button “FN” or Shift on the front panel.
NOTE:
Video output 1 and VGA can’t display at the same time. But Video output 2 can
display properly with Video Output 1 or VGA.

3.6 Connecting Audio Input & Output, Bidirectional Audio
3.6.1 Audio Input/One Audio Output
DH-DVR040LN has 4-ch audio input, 2-ch audio output, I-ch bidirectional audio input.
The DVR encodes audio and video signals simultaneously, which lets you control
audio at the monitored location.
To set up audio:
1. Make sure your audio input device matches the RCA input level. If the device and
RCA input levels do not match, audio distortion problems may occur.
2. Make sure the audio connector is wired as follows:
3. Connect a line input device or pre-amplified microphone to the audio connector for
the video channel on the rear panel.
Please refer to Figure 3-3.

3.6.2 Alarm Input and Relay Output
22
This series DVR offers 4-ch alarm input for external signaling devices, such as door
contacts or motion detectors. Each alarm input can be either normally open or
normally closed. Once configured, an alarm input can invoke many different activities,
including triggering a relay device, sending an alert to a security office or storing prealarm video to the DVR.
3.6.3 Alarm Input
You should check your alarm input mode is grounding alarm input or not.
For this series DVR, grounding signal is needed for alarm input.
If you need to connect two units or one DVR and other device, please use relay to
separate them.
Please refer to Figure 3-4 for more information.
352H
Figure 3-4
3.6.4 Alarm Output
Do not connect alarm output port directly with high power load (no more than 1 A) in
case of heavy current.
You can use the co-contactor to realize the connection between the alarm output port
and the load.
Please refer to Figure 3-5 for more information.

3.7 RS232
You can connect the DVR with POS or Keyboard through RS232.
With POS system, the DVR can communicate through RS232 and network. For the
POS system, the DVR can integrate the text content and even search the record
through the info.
The series DVR also support NKB operation. You can operate the DVR from the
keyboard controls instead of using the control pad on the front panel of the unit.
To connect a NKB keyboard to the DVR:
1. Assemble the KBD keyboard according to the instructions in its accompanying
installation manual.
2. Connect the KBD keyboard into one of the RS232 ports on the DVR or through
network.
3.8 RS485
When the DVR receives a camera control command, it transmits that command up
the coaxial cable to the PTZ device. RS485 is a single-direction protocol; the PTZ
device can’t return any data to the unit. To enable the operation, connect the PTZ
device to the RS485(A,B) input on the DVR. Since RS485 is disabled by default for
each camera, you must enable the PTZ settings first. This series DVRs support
multiple protocols such as Pelco-D, Pelco-P.
To connect PTZ devices to the DVR:
1. Connect RS485 A,B on the DVR rear panel.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the proper pins in the connector on the
camera.
3. Follow the instructions for configuring a camera to enable each PTZ device on the
DVR.

Appendix A HDD Capacity Calculation
Calculate total capacity needed by each DVR according to video recording (video
recording type and video file storage time).
Step 1: According to Formula (1) to calculate storage capacity qi that is the capacity
of each channel needed for each hour, unit Mbyte.
qi = d i ÷ 8 × 3600 ÷ 1024
(1)
In the formula: d i means the bit rate, unit Kbit/s
Step 2: After video time requirement is confirmed, according to Formula (2) to
calculate the storage capacity mi , which is storage of each channel needed unit
Mbyte.
mi = qi × hi × Di
(2)
In the formula:
hi means the recording time for each day (hour)
Di means number of days for which the video shall
be kept
Step 3: According to Formula (3) to calculate total capacity (accumulation) qT that is
needed for all channels in the DVR during scheduled video recording.
c
qT = ∑ mi
(3)
i =1
In the formula: c means total number of channels in one
DVR
Step 4: According to Formula (4) to calculate total capacity (accumulation) qT that is
needed for all channels in DVR during alarm video recording (including motion
detection).
c
qT = ∑ mi ×a%
(4)
i =1
In the formula:a% means alarm occurrence rate
