Connection in outdoor applications
Safety precautions
Coax grounding: If an outside cable system is connected to the
unit, ensure that the system is grounded.
U.S.A. models only: Section 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No.70, provides information regarding proper
grounding of the mount and supporting structure, grounding of
the coax to a discharge unit, size of grounding conductors,
location of discharge unit, connection to ground electrodes,
and requirements for the grounding electrode.
Power lines: An outdoor system should not be located in the
vicinity of overhead power lines, electrical lights, or power
circuits, or where it may contact such power lines or circuits.
When installing an outdoor system, extreme care should be
taken to keep from touching power lines or circuits, as this
contact may be fatal. U.S.A. models only - refer to the National
Electrical Code Article 820 regarding installation of CATV
systems.
12 VDC/24 VAC power source: This unit is intended to operate
with a limited power source, this power source must comply
with EN60950. User supplied wiring, from 12 VDC/24 VAC
supply to unit, must be in compliance with electrical codes
(Class 2 power levels). Do not ground the 12 VDC/24 VAC
supply at the terminals or at the unit's power supply terminals.
Connection: The unit has connection terminals on flying leads.
In wet or outdoor installations make use of the VDA-455SMB
accessory or use a field wiring box with Nema 4 or IP66
protection level or better. Make the connections inside the
water tight compartment. After connections are made ensure
that the watertight compartment is tightly closed and cables
and conduits are properly sealed to prevent ingress of water.

Power and video connections
19
The wiring harness has a BNC connector to accept the video
coax cable (with male BNC connector) and two stripped low
voltage power wires for connection to a power connector. A
UTP adapter (VDA-455UTP) is available as an optional accessory
to allow a UTP video cable to be connected to the BNC
connector.
The easiest way to connect the cables is as follows:
1.
Bring the building connections through the surface cable
hole so that they hang clear.
2.
Partially insert two screws into the pre-drilled holes (or
adapter plate).
3.
Using one of the keyholes, hang the mounting base of the
camera module on one screw temporarily; tilt the base
slightly to gain access to the cable connections.
4.
Connect the BNC connector of the camera module to the
video coax cable.
5.
Connect the stripped power wires (red +, brown –) to the
power supply connector.
Note
For a DC supply the polarity is important. Incorrect polarity
does not damage the camera but it will not switch on.
6.
In damp environments ensure that the connections are
sealed. (The surface mounting box and the other mounting
accessories have a sealed compartment for this purpose.)
7.
Push the connections back through the surface cable hole.
8.
Secure the mounting base of the camera module to the
surface with three screws.

CAUTION!
The Heater will be hot when in operation - Do not touch.Always
switch the heater off when working on the camera, refer to
Section 4.2.4 Heater, page 23 and Section 5.6.4 Connections

To assist in setting up the camera, connect a monitor to the
miniature 2.5 mm jack socket (2). This socket provides a
composite video signal (with sync). An optional cable (code
number S1460) is available for making this connection. When
the S1460 cable is attached, there is no video available on the
BNC connector to avoid interference.

CAUTION!
CCD image sensors are highly sensitive and require special care
for proper performance and extended lifetime. Do not expose
them to direct sunlight or bright spotlights in operating and
non-operating conditions. Avoid bright lights in the field of view
of the camera.
The camera module position can be adjusted along three axes.
When adjusting the camera position, ensure that the picture
display on the monitor is level. Set the camera to the desired
position by performing the following steps:
–
For horizontal adjustment along the pan axis (A), rotate the
camera module in the base. Do not rotate more than 360°.
–
To obtain a horizontal horizon (for tilted ceilings or
sidewall mounting), rotate the base of the lens along the
twist axis (C) to align the picture shown on the monitor.
Do not rotate more than 340°.
–
For vertical adjustment along the tilt axis (B), loosen
thumbwheels, position camera, then gently tighten
thumbwheels to secure camera. Do not rotate more than
90°.

Day/Night switching
The camera is equipped with a motorized IR filter. The
mechanical IR filter can be removed in low-light or IR
illuminated applications by software configuration settings.
If Auto switching mode is selected, the camera automatically
switches the filter depending on the observed light level. The
switching level is programmable. In Auto switching mode the
camera prioritizes motion (the camera gives sharp images
without motion blur as long as the light level permits) or color
(the camera gives color pictures as long as the light level
permits). The camera recognizes IR illuminated scenes to
prevent unwanted switching to color mode.
There are four different methods of controlling the IR filter:
5.4
–
via Bilinx communication,
–
automatically, based on the observed light levels, or
–
as part of the programmable mode profile.
Camera control communication (Bilinx)
This camera is equipped with a coaxial communications
transceiver (also referred to as Bilinx). In combination with VPCFGSFT, the camera setting can be changed from any point
along the coaxial cable. All menus can be accessed remotely
giving full control of the camera. With this method of
communication it is also possible to disable the local keys on
the camera.To avoid loss of communication on an installed
camera, the Communication On/Off selection is not available
while using remote control. This function can only be accessed
with the camera buttons. Bilinx communications can only be
disabled using the buttons on the camera.
Disabled camera buttons
When the Bilinx communications link is active, the buttons on
the camera are disabled.
