surveillance network such as those widely used in the retail, education, banking,
telecommunications, transportation, manufacturing, warehouse, and irrigation
industries.

Installation
Installation environment
When installing your product, consider these factors:
•
Ventilation
•
Temperature
•
Moisture
•
Chassis load
Ventilation: Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions. Ensure that the location planned for the installation of
the unit is well ventilated.
Temperature: Consider the TVR 10’s operating temperature (14 to 122°F, −10 to 50°C)
and noncondensing humidity specifications (10 to 90%) before choosing an
installation location. Extremes of heat or cold beyond the specified operating
temperature limits may reduce the life expectancy of the TVR 10. Do not install the
TVR 10 on top of other hot equipment. Leave 1.75 in. (44 mm) of space between rack
mounted TVR 10 units.
Moisture: Do not use the unit near water. Moisture can damage the internal
components. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this unit to rain
or moisture.
Chassis: Equipment weighing less than 35 lb. (15.9 kg) may be placed on top of the
TVR 10.

IP address
Specifies the network’s IP address. The IP address configured here must not
conflict with another IP address. If there is a DHCP server within the network,
you can set the IP as “0.0.0.0” then save and reboot the TVR 10. In the reboot
process, the TVR 10 searches the DHCP server and retrieves one dynamic IP
address. This value displays as the dynamic IP address. If the TVR 10 is utilizing
the PPPoE function, the TVR 10 also connects to the Internet and this value
displays as the dynamic internet IP address. Default value is 192.168.111.111.

NIC type
Specifies the NIC type. Default is 10M/100M Auto. Other options include:
10M Half-Dup, 10M Full-Dup, 100M Half-Dup and 100M Full-Dup.
IP server address
Use this option if the TVR 10 is utilizing the PPPoE function, and retrieves
one dynamic IP address. If you define the DNS IP with one fixed Internet
IP address, the TVR 10 sends information such as TRV10 name, serial
number, and current IP address to that fixed IP address. The fixed IP
address is referred to as the DNS IP. The DNS server with that fixed
Internet IP address can receive the TVR 10 information and be used to
resolve the TRVR10 dynamic IP address. This IP server is a unique
software and does not fall into the normal domain name server. You
can use the SDK provided to develop this DNS software.
Multicast IP
Specifies a D-class IP address between 224.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255.
You do not need to specify this option if you are not using the multicast
function. Some routers prohibit the use of multicast function in case of
a network storm.
Remote Host IP and Port
If an alarm and exception occur, the TVR 10 sends information to the
host IP you specify in this option. The site that has this IP can remotely
receive the alarm and exception information from the TVR 10.

[1] The TVR 10 has RS-422 support. However, the TVR 10 must be installed before the first keypad at
the beginning of the Digiplex (RS-422) system in order to avoid interfering with keyboard control. You
can have the TVR 10 driving a dome directly in a standalone system.
