iv
Do not use a strong or abrasive detergent when cleaning the camera.
Do not install near cooling or heating devices.
Do not install the camera in extreme temperature conditions. Use the camera in environments where temperature
is within 14°F to 122°F. Use adequate ventilation if a camera is installed where high temperatures may occur.
Do not install or use the camera in an environment where the humidity is high. Very high humidity levels can
reduce image quality.
Do not install the camera under unstable lighting conditions. Severe lighting change or flicker can cause the camera
to work improperly.
Do not touch the front lens of the camera. Be careful not to leave fingerprints on the lens or camera dome.
Do not drop the camera or subject it to physical shocks.
Do not expose the camera to rain or spill liquids on it. If it gets wet, wipe dry immediately. Liquids can contain
minerals that corrode the electronic components.
Do not expose the camera to radioactivity. If exposed to radioactivity the CCD will fail.
Do not disassemble the camera. There are no user-serviceable parts inside it.
Do not drop the camera or subject them to physical shocks. It can cause malfunctions to occur.
Never point the camera at a strong light, or exposing it to a spotlight or an object reflecting the strong light.
Smear or blooming may occur, and it can damage the image sensor.
Before applying power to the camera, check the power source to ensure that it is within specifications.

Installation
2.1 General Guidelines
•
Camera Lens: Handle the camera dome carefully to prevent scratching or soiling the dome and lens. If the dome or lens
becomes soiled, clean it only with approved products. See the Cleaning section later in this manual.
•
Monitor impedance: Set the monitor impedance switch to 75Ω.
•
Power supply: To avoid fire or shock hazard, use only a UL listed power supply.
•
Camera drop cable: The camera drop cable includes two connectors:
—— Power connector (blue terminal block) – Use 24 Vac power source (AC24V 1A adapter) or 12 Vdc power source
(DC12V 1A adapter). When connecting 12 Vdc power to the camera power drop, observe the polarity shown on the
terminal block.
—— Video coax connector (BNC, yellow sleeve) – for transmission of the video signal across coax (75 Ω) cable.

2.2 Mounting the camera
The camera can be mounted onto an electrical box, mounting bracket, or flat surface with sufficient strength to support it.
2.2.1 Mounting the camera onto a surface
When the camera is surface mounted, the drop cable can be routed through a hole in the center of the base and through the
mounting surface, or the side of the base. 3/4" conduit can be attached to either hole for the protection of the drop cable.

SECTION 2: INSTALLATION
1.
Remove the camera dome cover from the camera. If you have a BLK-CPD700 series camera, use a coin to pry off the cover. For
BLK-CPV cameras, loosen the four captive dome screws using the Torx L-wrench provided.
2.
Remove the camera module from the base by loosing the three captive screws that secure the camera module to the base.
3.
Determine (and acquire, if needed) the best type of fasteners for attaching the camera to the mounting surface. The
mounting screws and wall inserts provided are adequate for most surfaces.
4.
Using the camera base as a guide, mark the location of the screws that anchor the base to the mounting surface. For
mounting the camera to a surface, mark the four screw locations four holes. See the photo below. If you are routing the drop
cable through the hole in the base and then through the mounting surface, also mark the position of the hole in the center of
the base for the drop cable.

7.
Route the camera drop cable through the base as planned.
8.
If you are installing a BLK-CPV700 series camera, position the base seal appropriately onto the base.
9.
Anchor the base to the mounting surface using appropriate fasteners.
10. Reattach the camera module to the base. Do not install the dome cover at this time.
11. Connect the camera drop cable video and power leads to a video and power extension cable as needed. If using 12 Vdc to
power your camera, observe the polarity marked on the power drop cable when connecting the power extension cable.

SECTION 2: INSTALLATION

CAUTION
NOTE
When using 12 Vdc powering, use extreme caution to observe the polarity of the of the voltage applied to the camera.
