Power Supply
PoE: PoE power supply via LAN cable
(IEEE802.3af compliant)
Power ConsumptionMax. 4.3 W
Connecting the Camera
The external device output terminal consists of an OUT terminal and
a GND terminal. Controls from the viewer can be used to open and
close the circuit between the terminals. A MOSFET device is used
for the output terminal.
Rating range for load connected to output terminals.
Rating between output terminals:
Maximum voltage 50 V DC
Continuous load current at or below 100 mA
On resistance: Below 1 Ω
Adaptive wiring for external device cables
Rating Range: (same for contact input and output)
Conductor Size: 0.42 – 0.80 mm ( 0.017 – 0.031 in.) dia.
(AWG: No. 26 – 20)
Stripped cable length should be approximately 11 – 13 mm (0.43 –
0.51 in.)

•Check with your dealer for more information about PoE devices.
•Some PoE devices allow current limits for each port, but applying
limits may interfere with performance. If using this type of PoE
device, do not limit the operating current.
•Some PoE devices 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
External Device I/O Terminals
 External Device Input Terminals (IN)
The external device input terminal consists of a positive terminal
(IN) and negative terminal (GND). Connecting cables to the
positive and negative terminals and opening or closing the circuit
notifies the Viewer.
When connecting sensors and switches, use those that have terminals
which are isolated from internal power and GND.

This Installation Guide uses the following marks to indicate important
information the user should know in order to use the product safely.
In this section, explanations are provided for each mark so that
readers will understand the level of importance for each. Be sure to
observe these items.
Failure to follow the instructions
accompanied by this symbol may result in
death or serious injury.
Failure to follow the instructions accompanied
by this symbol may result in injury.
•The External Device I/O Terminal consists of three terminals (IN, OUT,
and GND). The GND terminal serves as both the external device input
GND and the external device output GND.
•The GND terminal is connected to the camera interior GND.
•When using the external device input and output at the same time,
couple the GND wire from the input cable with the GND wire from the
output cable, conforming to the rating range, and connect it to the
GND terminal.
•Do not push the external device I/O terminal button with too much
force. Doing so may cause the button to remain pushed-in.

significant vibration or impact, or places subject to salt
damage or corrosive gas.
Failure to do so may result in the camera falling or other
•Be careful not to trap your fingers during installation of the
