•
For Top Down Riser—Six (6) M8 stainless steel bolts and washers to secure the top down riser
after the camera is attached—bolt length depends on mounting platform thickness.
Recommended:
M8 socket head cap screws, or
5/16” - 18 socket head cap screws, or
5/16” - 18 hex head sheet metal screws type 316 stainless steel
Apply thread locker (Loctite 262 or equivalent)

•
Ethernet cables to connect to the ship’s Ethernet port,
8-conductor T568B
•
Miscellaneous electrical hardware, connectors, and tools
General Location Considerations
Warning: The M400 system is not designed to operate in an enclosed environment in the
presence of flammable gases. Failure to follow this warning may result in explosion or fire.
First determine a good location for mounting the M400 system body, JCU II, and PoE switch. The
system has four cable connections:
•
Power
•
Ethernet connection to the PoE switch from the M400 system body for the JCU II; the switch
requires an Ethernet connection to the JCU II (customer supplied) and to a shipboard network
(optional).
•
HD-SDI digital video
•
Composite analog video and serial data (NMEA and factory test)
More than one JCU II can be installed to control the camera and more than one display can be
used to view the video. Also, a single JCU II can be used to control more than one camera. Most
often, the JCU II and video monitor are mounted close together, as a pair, so the video can be
viewed when the camera position (pan, tilt, zoom) is changed with the JCU II.
When determining the component locations, consider how the system may be expanded in the
future. For example, adding an additional monitor, or perhaps a JCU II and monitor pair.
Consider the following points when determining the camera location:
•
Mount the M400 camera body as high as practical, but without interfering with any radar,
navigational, or communications electronics.
•
To minimize interference with video signals, the camera body must be mounted
a minimum of 1 meter away from any radio frequency antenna.
•
Minimize the degree to which vessel structures block the camera’s 360° view. The camera’s
continuous-pan design lets it rotate and point in all directions.
432-0012-00-12 Version 110
July 2016

System Installation
•
It is a good practice to test the unit at the planned installation location with typical vessel
electronics active prior to mounting the camera.
•
Mount the camera as close to the vessel’s center line as possible so you will have a
symmetrical view of on-coming traffic, obstacles, and other navigational hazards.
•
The M400 camera has a “forward” direction adjustment which has been set at
the factory. This is the direction directly toward the front of the vessel. Icons on
the video show the direction the camera is facing in relation to an outline of a
ship. Refer to the latest Interface Description Document for details. After
installation, the forward direction of the camera must be verified and adjusted if
required. Refer to M400 Operator’s Manual (FLIR Doc. # 432-0012-00-10).
Note: When the camera is mounted upside down (ball down), the camera base must be rotated
backwards, to point toward the stern of the vessel.
•
An appropriate camera mount suited for the camera mass and potential vibration and
mechanical shock is important for proper camera functioning. The camera is tested to hold
position for mechanical shock up to 9 G transverse and 15 G vertical. Improper mounts that are
loose and/or resonate can magnify vessel impacts causing the camera to be unable to maintain
pointing direction.
•
When selecting a mounting location for the M400 system, consider cable lengths and cable
routing. Ensure the cables are long enough, given the proposed mounting locations and cable
routing requirements, and route the cables before you install the components.
•
Use power cables that have sufficient dimensions to ensure safety and video and
communication cables that have sufficient dimensions to ensure adequate signal strength.
•
To ensure a proper seal between the camera unit and the vessel, an O-ring should be installed
in the camera base. The O-ring will seal properly with a surface that is flat to within 1.5 mm
(0.06 in) over the diameter of the base of the camera. If it is necessary to install on a surface
that does not meet this criteria, a marine-grade sealant (3M 4200 or equivalent) must be used
rather than the O-ring.
•
A final location consideration is the relation between the camera and other navigation devices.
If relying on a magnetic compass for navigation and direction, establish a “compass safe
distance” for any object placed in its vicinity, especially any electronic equipment. The magnetic
compass safe distance for the camera is 40 cm (15.7 in).
System Installation
In most installations, the M400 is mounted upright on top of a mounting surface, with the pan/tilt
base below the camera; this is known as the ball up orientation. Optionally, the unit can be hung
upside down or ball down. Once the mounting location has been selected, verify that both sides of
the mounting surface are accessible. The camera mounting surface must be at least as large as
the footprint of the camera itself to ensure an adequate seal with the O-ring.
Use a thread-locking compound such as Loctite 262 or equivalent with all metal-to-metal threaded
connections.
Caution: Use all six mounting holes to secure the camera rigidly.
As an alternative to a mounting O-ring, you can use a marine-grade sealant such as 3M 4200 or
the equivalent.
432-0012-00-12 Version 110
July 2016

System Installation
Mounting Upright
The cable connectors terminating the pigtail cables on the camera are waterproof, vibration
tolerant, twist pin connectors designed for the marine environment. Appropriate sealing steps are
needed when making connections to on-board systems.
Caution: If you print the template from the PDF file, ensure that it is printed to the correct scale by
checking the dimensions prior to cutting any holes.
Using the template as a guide, mark the location of the holes for mounting the camera
Once the holes are drilled in the mounting surface, thread the power supply, video, and Ethernet
cables from the camera through the center hole, and then place the camera on the mounting
surface so the mounting bolts extend through the drilled holes. Secure and seal the camera body
to the mounting surface.
Mounting Upside Down
When a camera is going to be mounted upside down (ball down), a menu setting is used to
configure the system for ball down operation. Set the camera orientation after the camera the
camera is installed. Refer to “Configure Ball Down Installation” on page 34.
Installing the Joystick Control Unit (JCU II)
Mount the JCU II in an area that is close to the monitor being
used to display the M400 video output. Make sure the area you
choose leaves enough room for the cable under the JCU II. The
magnetic compass safe distance from the JCU II is 55 cm (21.7
in).
The JCU II can be mounted to the dash in any orientation, using
four captive mounting screws that hold panel mounting clamps.
When the mounting screws are tightened, the panel mounting
clamps rotate and extend away from the JCU II at a right angle,
and come into contact with the mounting surface. The JCU II
can be mounted to dash thicknesses ranging from 0.16 cm to
4.45 cm (0.063 in to 1.750 in). A trim bezel snaps on top of the
JCU II to cover the mounting screws. See “Installing the
Joystick Control Unit (JCU II)” on page 12 for detailed
instructions.

System Installation
JCU II Connection to Camera
The JCU II is a Power over Ethernet (PoE) device and can be
connected to either the supplied PoE Ethernet Switch or a
customer supplied PoE injector.
To ensure a proper seal around the JCU II, the supplied gasket
must be applied to the JCU II and the cutout opening for the
JCU II should precisely match the template. If the cutout
opening is too large, the gasket around the JCU II may not
cover the opening adequately.
The cable gland seal is designed for use with double-shielded
category 5 Ethernet cable. To ensure a good seal and to
maintain compliance with EMI ratings, a double-shielded cable
is required.
Caution: If you print the template from the PDF file, ensure that
it was printed to the correct scale by checking the dimensions
prior to cutting any holes.
Joystick Control Unit - Back
Standard JCU II Mounting Instructions
1. Using the JCU II template supplied as a guide, mark the
location of the rectangular opening that will allow the
JCU II to be recessed in the vessel’s control console.
Ensure the corners are marked precisely and cut square.
2. Apply the adhesive side of the rubber gasket to the back of
the JCU II on the surface that faces the mounting platform.
The JCU II comes with 4 panel mounting clamps that can
be reversed when the thickness of the panel material is
less than 7.9 mm (5/16 or 0.31 in); see instructions below.
Ensure the mounting clamps are rotated inward and are
recessed so the entire JCU II fits into the hole
3. Remove boots from both ends of the Ethernet cable, as it may interfere with the coupling
gland. The boot may cause the RJ45 connector tab to depress, which can lead to intermittent
connections.
4. Loosen or remove the cable gland nut on the JCU II, and insert the Ethernet cable RJ45
connector through the gland nut. Once the Ethernet cable is connected to the JCU II, replace
the gland nut and turn the nut 1/4 turn beyond hand tight.
5. Insert the JCU II into the hole and secure with the 4 corner screws. Rotate each screw one full
turn and ensure the mounting clamps are rotated outward from the JCU II housing. Tighten the
screws to draw the mounting clamps up against the mounting surface and then tighten another
quarter or half turn. Do not over tighten the screws.

System Installation
Mounting the JCU II to a Thin Panel
As shipped from the factory, the JCU II can be mounted to
dash thicknesses ranging from 7.9 mm to 44.5 mm (0.31 in to
1.75 in). The clamps are set with the small foot on each clamp
facing away from the panel, as shown.

Panel thickness
up to 44.5 mm
If you intend to mount the JCU II to a panel of 7.9 mm (0.31
in) thickness or less, remove the clamps from the mounting
screws, turn them around and thread them back onto each of
the four screws. The foot on each clamp now faces the panel
and allows the clamp to contact thinner panel surfaces while
still allowing for proper compression of the JCU II mounting
gasket to form a watertight seal.

Connecting Power
The camera itself does not have an on/off switch. Generally the camera will be connected to a
circuit breaker and the circuit breaker will be used to apply or remove power to the camera. When
power is supplied, the camera will be in one of three modes: Booting Up, Standby, Parked, or
Powered On. The M400 Operator’s Manual has detailed information about powering and operating
the camera.
Installation of a circuit breaker (or fuse) in line with the power connection is required to protect the
power wiring and camera from power surge or short circuit.

Proper Grounding
Caution: Ensure the camera is properly grounded. Following best grounding practices, the
camera chassis ground should use the lowest resistance path possible.
Failure to provide this connection may result in electrical interference between camera and other
shipboard electronic systems. Furthermore, it is recommended that a bonded grounding scheme
is used with a common ground between the chassis ground and electrical return, with the
connection made as close as possible to the negative terminal of the battery.
Video Connections
Video cables of various lengths with different connectors at one end are available from FLIR. The
video cable used should be rated as RG6 to ensure an adequate quality video signal. For cable
runs in excess of 100 ft, a video amplifier should be used.
Ethernet Connections
The Ethernet cable from the camera can be connected to another Ethernet cable with an RJ45
waterproof enclosure connector (FLIR PN 4115028). The Ethernet network cable should be
8-conductor T568B, Ethernet, double-shielded for EMI considerations.

Installation Examples
This chapter describes several typical installations using standard and optional accessories.
Basic Standard Installation
The JCU II selects which video output to view (IR or visible) on the monitor and to control the
camera configuration using the OSD menus. If two JCU II are used (see Figure 2-2), typically, they
are installed in different locations aboard the vessel, each with a monitor. They both can be
switched on and enabled at the same time. The video to the monitor can be either the HD-SDI
video signal or the composite analog video signal to match the customer supplied monitor. NMEA/
serial data connections and digital IP video connections are not shown below.

IP Interface and PC Operations
The M400 cameras and JCU IIs are network devices that communicate over an Ethernet network
using Internet Protocol (IP). In addition to using the JCU II to control and configure a camera, a
user or installer can also complete similar operations and more advanced configurations using a
Web browser1 to view the video and control the camera.
Once the camera is connected to a network and powered on, a video management system (VMS)
or a network video recorder (for example, FLIR DNR400 Series) can record video streams and
provide other features such as cloud storage. Refer to the documentation of any VMS or video
recorder for operation and setup details.
The M400 camera and JCU II are shipped with Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
enabled to assign IP addresses. During installation or at other times the system may have been
set to Static addressing and these addresses may have been changed.
M400 Web Browser Interface

Setup->IR->ROI (region of interest)
The camera adjustments under the ROI heading allow the user to make changes to the Region Of
Interest. The ROI determines what portion of the image is considered by the Automatic Gain
Control (AGC) algorithm. By default all of the pixels in the image are considered; in some cases it
may provide an improved image if a portion of the image is excluded. For example, the sky is
generally very cold, so if the ROI excludes the sky it may add more contrast to the rest of the
image. A pull-down list offers some convenient options.

Setup->IR->AGC Scene Presets
The AGC parameters affect how the overall IR video image appears. The default Histogram
algorithm is suitable for most installations, but in some cases one of the other selections may
provide a more appealing image, depending on personal preferences. Be aware the settings that
are optimal at one time may be less optimal a short time later, since conditions such as weather
and time of day affect the image and are constantly changing.
•
Gray Shade Compression (Plateau value) when set high, the algorithm approaches the
behavior of classic histogram equalization—gray shades are distributed proportionally to the
cumulative histogram, and more gray shades will be devoted to large areas of similar
temperature in a given scene. On the other hand, when the value is set low, the algorithm
behaves more like a linear AGC algorithm—there is little compression in the resulting 8-bit
histogram.
•
Brightness (ITT Mean) setting determines the temperature that is at the middle of the 256
“shades of gray” available to the camera. Higher values allow more detail in hotter scenes,
while lower values allow more detail in lower temperature scenes.
•
Contrast (Max Gain) can generally be used to increase contrast (although it may also
increase noise due to increased gain).
•
Sharpness (DDE) is used to enhance image details and/or suppress fixed pattern noise.
Higher values increase Sharpness, while lower values soften (blur) the image and filter fixed
pattern noise.
•
Gamma (ACE) provides a contrast adjustment dependent on the relative scene temperature.
Gamma values greater than 0 give more contrast to the hotter scene content and decrease
contrast for the colder scene content. Gamma values less than 0 do the opposite by
decreasing the contrast for hotter scene content and leaving more of the “shades of gray” to
represent the colder scene content.
•
Smart Scene Balance (SSO) value defines the percentage of the scene that will be allotted a
linear mapping. With SSO enabled (greater than zero), the difference in gray shades between
two objects is more representative of the difference in temperature, although the optimization
in local contrast can be lost.
It may be best to start with the Scene Presets selections, but experiment with different AGC
settings. Select Save Settings button at the bottom of the page to keep the settings after a power
cycle or select the Factory Defaults button to return the settings to default values.
Each Scene Preset provides a combination of parameters that are preferred for certain types of
conditions. Select a Scene Preset that provides an image that is optimal for the situation. Recall
the Scene preset can also be toggled by selecting the Toggle Scene Preset button from the Live
Video page control panel.

UPnP is typically not active on older computers using Windows XP but can be activated by
following the steps outlined here.
Note: The JCU II will display on the PC network only when the PC is on the same network as the
camera. If the PC is not configured with a static IP address, the UPnP icons will not display.
UPnP Overview
UPnP is a set of networking protocols that allows devices on a network to connect automatically,
without the need for configuration by a network expert, thus simplifying the implementation of
networks and the installation of computer components. A UPnP compatible device from any
vendor can dynamically join a network, obtain an IP address, announce its name, convey its
capabilities upon request, and learn about the presence and capabilities of other devices.
UPnP devices are plug-and-play in that when connected to a network they automatically announce
information about themselves and supported device and services types, enabling clients that
recognize those types to immediately begin using the device.
M400 cameras and JCU IIs are UPnP devices so they broadcast their presence on the network. A
PC configured to accept UPnP broadcasts will show all UPnP devices discovered under My
Network Places.

Enabling Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
Enabling the UPnP User Interface
In some cases, Windows will discover UPnP devices and provide its own user interface to control
them. Windows Vista and Windows 7 automatically detect network devices in the Network page. If
UPnP devices are hidden, a prompt at the top of the screen will ask to display hidden devices.
With Windows XP, install the optional user interface (UI) component using the steps below. This UI
component Web page a balloon tip for newly discovered devices and places an icon for each
device in the My Network Places folder. To enable the UPnP UI, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
2. In the Add or Remove Programs dialog box, click Add/Remove Windows Components on the
left side.
3. In the Windows Components Wizard, click Networking Services and then click Details.
4. Select the Universal Plug and Play check box.
5. Click OK, and then click Next in the Windows Components Wizard. The Windows XP
installation CD may be required.
See if any UPnP-enabled devices exist on your network by opening My Network Places. If there
are UPnP devices on the local network, they will appear here with a generic icon based on the
device type. In the future when a UPnP device is installed on the network, a notifying icon will
appear briefly in the System Tray. When you see this icon, go to My Network Places to view the
new device. Double-click on the icon to bring up the Web page.

M400 Reference
M400 Maintenance
The M400 components are designed for years of rugged, trouble-free use.
Cleaning the JCU II
To clean the JCU II, use a soft cloth and clean water. Mild household cleaner such as Windex can
also be used to remove tougher stains or spots. Do not use alcohol based cleaners or any type of
solvents as this may discolor or damage the unit.
Cleaning the Camera Optics
Warning: The M400 camera body is a remotely and automatically controlled device. Ensure
camera motion has been disabled before cleaning surfaces that can cause pinch hazards.
Great care should be used with your camera's optics. They are delicate and can be damaged by
improper cleaning. The M400 thermal camera lenses are designed for the harsh outdoor
environment and have a coating for durability and anti-reflection, but may require cleaning
occasionally. FLIR Systems, Inc. suggests that you clean the lens when image quality degradation
is noticed or excessive contaminant build-up is seen on the lens.
Rinse the camera housing and optics with low pressure fresh water to remove any salt deposits
and to keep it clean. If the front window of the camera gets water spots, wipe it with a clean soft
cotton cloth dampened with fresh water. If the window requires further cleaning, use a soft moist
cotton-based cloth with Isopropyl alcohol or dish soap.
Do not use abrasive materials, such as paper or scrub brushes as this will possibly damage the
lens by scratching it. Only wipe the lens clean when you can visually see contamination on the
surface.
Cleaning the Camera Body
Warning: The M400 camera body is a remotely and automatically controlled device. Ensure
camera motion has been disabled before cleaning surfaces that can cause pinch hazards.
Caution: The M400 is sealed at the factory against liquid water, suspended particulates, and other
contaminants. It is important that you not open the camera for any reason, as it will compromise
this seal and possibly damage the unit. Opening the M400 camera will void the manufacturer’s
warranty.
Do not pressure wash the camera, especially around the FLIR logos, as that could force water
through the camera seals. Clean the interface between the yoke and base often to prevent
accumulation of debris or salt deposits.
If you have a problem with your thermal camera, do not attempt to repair it yourself. The M400
camera is a sealed unit and can not be opened or serviced in the field. Consult your installation
dealer or FLIR Systems, Inc. for repair information.
