the arm(s) until they are clear of the dome.
Wire — What to DO
NVT INSTRUCTIONS
1. DO use point-to-point Unshielded Twisted Pair wire, gauge 24 or thicker, stranded
or solid, Category 2, 3, 4, or 5.
2. The video signal may co-exist in the same wire bundle as other video, telephone,
data, control signals, or low-voltage power. It is also OK to run NVT video signals in
or near electromagnetic fields (in accordance with National Electrical Code, local, or
other local safety requirements).
3. DO measure the wire distance. Use only transceivers that are designed for that
distance.
UNSHIELDED TWISTED PAIR
VIDEO WIRING
NOTE: The customer must purchase the Video Transceiver from
NVT. Part numbers are:
• NV-212A (500 ft.)
* NV-213A or NV-213A-M (1000 ft.)
• NV-652R, NV-862R, or NV-1662R (3000 ft.)
The cameras included in the Q-View™ series have the option of transmitting video
signals to NVT receivers via unshielded twisted pair cable. You must purchase the
receiver separately. Instructions for connecting the receiver end of the the unshielded
twisted pair cable will be included with the NVT receiver. Following are instructions
for connecting the unshielded twisted pair cables to the RJ45 (Cat. 5) cable running
outside your housing.
1. Video for all four cameras is contained in the one RJ45 (Cat. 5) cable. An RJ45
female coupling is provided so that all connections can be made with an RJ45
connector. The following is the wiring diagram for the four twisted pair wires that are
included with the Cat. 5 cable.

4. DO make sure the pair of wires carrying the video signal is sent as a twisted pair
(e.g. the blue-white/white-blue wires twisted together as a pair), not a “split-pair”
(e.g. blue-white conductor, part of one pair/orange-white conductor, part of another
pair).
Wire — What NOT to DO
1. Do not use shielded twisted pair wire. It will severely degrade the
distance performance. Short runs may be used with some signal degradation (for
example elevator traveler cables). Multi-pair wire with an overall shield is OK.
2. Do nOt use un-twisted wire. It will reduce the NVT product’s inherent
interference immunity.
3. DO NOT allow your installation to have “bridge-taps”, loading coils, talk-battery,
or MOV type protectors. Bridge-taps are where a twisted pair is connected to two
twisted pairs (such as an extension phone at home). Bridge-taps cause reflections
as the signal propagates, resulting in “ghosts” in the video image, and are to be
avoided.
4. If the phone company is providing the cable runs between buildings, make sure
it’s “dry copper” i.e. it should have none of the following: dial-tone, 48 volts, loading
coils, bridge-taps, switching, or long paths to the phone company’s central office and
back.
5. Due to near-end crosstalk, DO NOT send a transmit and a receive signal in the
same wire bundle. Exceptions: Less than 1,000 ft (300m), or Category 5 cable, up to
2,000 ft (600m) are OK.
6. DO NOT send “Up-the-Coax” Pan/Tilt/Zoom signals through active (amplified)
NVT transceivers.
!
7. For safety, never put NVT signals in the same conduit as high-voltage
wiring.
!
8. WARNING — to reduce a risk of fire or electrical shock, do not expose
this product to rain or moisture.
2. Connect the other end of the unshielded twisted pair cable to the
NVT receiver.
Measure your wire distance
CAUTION: The unshielded twisted pair video signal is polarity dependent. The positive
video wire for each camera MUST be connected to the positive terminal on the NVT
receiver, and negative MUST be connected to negative.
Note: All NVT quoted distance specifications include any coax in the run. It is
recommended that the wire distance be measured to ensure that the capability of
the NVT product is correct.
3. When using unshielded twisted pair cable you DO NOT need the BNC connector. All
four BNC connectors are provided inside the housing for testing purposes. Be sure that
there is no video connection other than the unshielded twisted pair cable. Wire resistance may be measured with an ohm-meter by shorting the two
conductors together at the far end, and measuring the loop-resistance out and back.
Compare your readings with the charts on the next page.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If you experience problems with the camera picture please check these simple
troubleshooting procedures for possible solutions before calling technical support.
STATIONARY OR SCROLLING HORIZONTAL LINES
ON SCREEN
GROUND LOOPS
Generally a horizontal line on screen, whether moving or stationary, means you have
a ground loop problem. The video shield should only be connected to ground through
the monitor or other electronic equipment that uses the video signal. Connecting the
video shield to ground at the camera will create a ground loop, which may interfere
with the video signal (See Figure A). This should not damage the camera, but the video
signal may become unusable. A ground loop problem will cause a dark horizontal
bar to slowly “scroll" through the picture. To solve this problem, remove all ground
connections from the video connection EXCEPT for the ground at the terminating end
of the video signal.
The video termination should be a 75-ohm impedance, standard in monitors and
other video equipment. If the video signal goes to more than one piece of equipment,
a monitor and multiplexer input for instance, insure that one and only one piece of
equipment terminates the video signal with 75 ohms; otherwise the image will be
degraded and may appear to be unusually dim.
Power A
The auto iris lens is set at the factory. If you experience video too light or dark
you can manually adjust using the auto iris adjustment screw.
If there is low or no color the Auto Iris is too open, if the picture is dark or grainy in good
conditions the Auto Iris is too closed.
To adjust the auto iris lens, first locate the AUTO IRIS ADJUSTMENT SCREW on the camera
PC board. Using a small insulated screwdriver (blade width of from 1/16" to 3/32"), adjust
the control. Turning the control CLOCKWISE opens the iris, making the image brighter.
Turning the control COUNTER CLOCKWISE closes the iris, making the image darker.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON AUTO IRIS ADJUSTMENT:
AUTOMATIC BROWN OUT FEATURE
The camera includes an automatic brown out feature which is activated whenever the
incoming voltage drops below 10 VAC or VDC.
WHEN ADJUSTING, USE A SMALL, INSULATED SCREWDRIVER. The auto
iris adjustments are very sensitive. Use gentle pressure when turning.
To adjust, turn either clock-wise or counter-clockwise no more than one
degree at a time. Check the monitor after each turn to determine is the
desired brightness and color have been obtained. When the adjustment is
satisfactory, place a hand over the lens to block out all light. Quickly remove
the hand to be sure the iris reacts.
NVT TROUBLESHOOTING
If you are experiencing problems, attempt to simplify your setup. Test each cable
segment separately. For example, test the camera and monitor together without the
other equipment. Then add in the NVT transceivers, back-to-back. Test each segment
of a long cable-run independently. Attempt to isolate the problem.
Below are problems that may be encountered. If the suggestions below are not helpful,
or the recommendations are not effective, please call NVT’s customer support. NVT
customer support can be reached 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM PST at (800) 959-9870 or at
(+1) (650) 562-0600.
If the voltage is greater than 1/2 volt, use an amplified receiver, such as the
NV-652R, NV-862R, or NV-1662R.
Alternately, remove the ground at one end (usually at the camera end). Be sure that
floating the camera conforms to local/regional and National Electrical Codes.
4. Check for crosstalk from a second video path. Disconnect all other video sources.
If the problem goes away, check for a split-pair or un-twisted wire.
FAINT STRIPES GLIDING UP OR DOWN THE SCREEN
These are caused by crosstalk from a second video path, or with ground-loops in
installations employing passive models at both ends.
FAINT OR BLURRY PICTURE; LITTLE OR NO COLOR
Possible causes include:
1. Shielded twisted-pair cable. Verify that the wire is unshielded twisted-pair cable.
Multi-pair cable with an overall shield is OK.
2. Longer wire distance than expected. Be sure to include any coax cable that’s
part of this distance. Verify end-to-end connectivity with an ohm meter. Measure the
distance by disconnecting the transceivers, shorting the far end, reading the loop’s
resistance at the near end. See above for ohm vs. distance ratings. If necessary,
replace transceivers with correct models specified for this distance.
3. Incorrect distance equalization setting. Adjust the equalization controls) with a
mini screwdriver (NV-652R, NV-862R or the NV-1662R). If the transmitter is an
NV-653T, verify correct equalization switch setting.
1. To identify, disconnect all other video signals temporarily. If the interference goes
away, check the wire to make sure the signal is traveling through a twisted pair. Is
two-way video being sent more than 1,000 ft (300m) over Category 2 or 3 wire?
If so, the send and receive signals may need to go in separate jacketed cables, or
upgrade to Category 5 wire.
2. Next, check for ground loops. See #3 above.
NO POWER LIGHT ON THE NVT UNIT
Check the blue “power” LED on powered NVT units. If the light is not on, the receiver
is not getting power. Re-check the power source and connections.
If the green LED is on but the power LED is off, check that the power supply is
floating. Grounding one side of the power input may cause this condition.
4. Poor connection at a punch-block, splice, or coax cable. Re-check using the
method described in #2 above, or use a wire test set.
5. Short between conductors of the twisted-pair. Use an ohm meter to locate the
short.
6. Transient protection devices employing metal-oxide varistors. Use carbon blocks,
gas-discharge tubes, or NVT transceivers with built-in protection.
7. Check the camera. Are the focus and iris set correctly? Verify with portable
monitor.
EXTREMELY FAINT PICTURE
Only faint shadows of the original picture are visible. One of the twisted pair conductors
is open or the wires are shorted together. Check with an ohm meter.
OVER-SATURATED COLORS; HIGH CONTRAST GRAINY PICTURE; TOO BRIGHT,
TORN PICTURE
Adjust the distance equalization as necessary. Verify that the monitor has a 75
termination, not in “loop-through”.
WON'T SYNC; WIDE, WHITE JAGGED AREAS
NO GREEN LIGHT, NO VIDEO
The NV-652R, NV-862R or NV-1662R series receiver/hub is not detecting a video
signal. There is an open or shorted connection. Use a multimeter to locate the fault.
GHOSTS
Faint shadows of the original signal shifted to the right. This is caused by an
impedance mismatch along the wire. Verify that the monitor is terminated with 75
(not in “loop-through”.) Check that all wire is unshielded twisted pair. The highfrequency wire impedance should be 100. Check for bridge-taps (see below) either
by inspecting wiring closet connections, or, if available, using a “Time-Domain
Reflectometer” (T.D.R.), sometimes called a “cable tester”.
If the faint shadows are not copies of the original picture, but from the picture of
some other camera, check for crosstalk:
Is any portion of the wire un-twisted?
Are the signals from two cameras split between two pairs?
Looks like a scrambled Cable TV signal. Check polarity.
Is there a short between a conductor of one signal and a conductor of another?
WON'T SYNC; TORN PICTURE
1. Make sure that you are using unshielded twisted pair wire.
2. Check distance equalization settings.
3. For installations with passive (non-amplified) transceivers at both ends, check for
ground loops. This may be done with an AC Voltmeter, as shown below:
