Note
75 Ohm video termination can be enabled/disabled for the video input via the product's
web page at Video & Audio > Video Input > Video termination. This termination is enabled
on factory default. In cases where the product is to be connected in parallel with other
equipment, for optimum video quality, it is recommended that termination be enabled for
only the last device in the video signal chain.
Network connector - RJ45 Ethernet connector.
SFP connector - The unit can only use one Network interface, either an SFP module or RJ45
connector. SFP module has higher priority than the RJ45 connector.
NOTICE
The product shall be connected using a shielded network cable (STP). All cables connecting
the product to the network switch shall be shielded (STP) and intended for their specific
use. Make sure that the network switch is properly grounded. For information about
regulatory requirements, see Regulatory Information, on page 2 .
Audio in (pink) - 3.5 mm input for a mono microphone, or a line-in mono signal (left channel is
used from a stereo signal).
Audio out (green) - 3.5 mm output for audio (line level) that can be connected to a public address
(PA) system or an active speaker with a built-in amplifier. A stereo connector must be used for
audio out.
SD card slot - A standard or high-capacity microSD card (not included) can be used for local
recording with removable storage.
NOTICE
To prevent corruption of recordings, the SD card should be unmounted before removal. To
unmount, go to Setup > System Options > Storage > SD Card and click Unmount.

ENGLISH
BNC connector - Each video input is terminated using a coax/BNC connector. Connect a 75 Ohm
coaxial video cable; the recommended maximum length is 800 feet (250 meters).
AXIS P7216 Video Encoder
Power connector - 2-pin terminal block for power input. Use a limited power source (LPS) with
either a rated output power limited to £100 W or a rated output current limited to £5 A.
I/O terminal connector - Use in applications for e.g. motion detection, event triggering, time
lapse recording and alarm notifications. In addition to an auxiliary power and a GND pin, the I/O
terminal connector provides the interface to:
•
•
Digital output – For connecting external devices such as relays and LEDs.
Connected devices can be activated by the VAPIX® Application Programming
Interface, output buttons on the Live View page or by an Action Rule. The
output will show as active (shown under System Options > Ports & Devices) if
the alarm device is activated.
Digital input – An alarm input for connecting devices that can toggle between
an open and closed circuit, for example: PIRs, door/window contacts, glass
break detectors, etc. When a signal is received the state changes and the input
becomes active (shown under System Options > Ports & Devices).
RS-485/RS-422 connector - Two 2-pin terminal blocks for RS-485/RS-422 serial interface used to
control auxiliary equipment, e.g. PTZ devices.
