INTENDED USE
Before installing the Canon BU Series Camera System, please read the manuals thoroughly. The BU-46H is designed for
outdoor use and the BU-51H camera system is designed for use indoors. Outdoor operation of the BU-51H is not recommended,
has not been tested, and could damage the camera and/or create a potentially unsafe operating condition. Use only the Vaddio
PowerRite power supply provided with the BU-46H.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
The information contained in this manual will help you install the Canon BU Series cameras. For reference, Vaddio keeps
copies of Specifications, Installation and User Guides and most pertinent product drawings for the Vaddio product line on the
website. These documents can be downloaded from vaddio.com
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Read and understand all instructions before using. Do not operate any electrical device if it has been dropped or damaged. In
this case, a Vaddio technician must examine the product before operating. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not immerse
in water or other liquids and avoid extremely humid conditions.
Use only the power supply provided with the system. Use of any unauthorized power supply will
void any and all warranties.
Please do not use “pass-thru” type RJ-45 connectors. These pass-thru type connectors do not
work well for professional installations and can be the cause of intermittent connections which
can result in the RS-232 control line failing and locking up, and/or compromising the SHSDS™
differential video. For best results please use standard RJ-45 connectors and test all cables
for proper pin-out prior to termination.
INFORMATION
For RS-422 (BU-46H) and RS-232 (BU-51H) control information, please see the full-length Technical Manual for
the specific camera. These manuals can be found either on the Vaddio or Canon websites. Vaddio has also
prepared a number of Tech Notes, specifications and drawings designed to inform and educate integrators on the
value and the specific uses of Vaddio products.

INSTALLATION
The instructions below are for wiring and configuring the Canon BU series cameras for installation with Vaddio
joystick controllers. Please refer to the instruction manuals for the BU series cameras for assembling and
configuring the cameras. The Canon BU series cameras are specifically designed for installation on a horizontal
surface with Cat. 5 cable connectivity for RS-232/422 signaling, and coax cabling for video (HD-SDI and composite)
and sync signals.
Before Installing
• Open the box for the camera system, and follow instructions related to camera set-up and configuration. For
the BU-51H, this will include assembling the camera system to the pan/tilt head, as well as connecting power
and control cables between the camera and pan/tilt system that are provided by Canon.
• Locate the camera mounting location paying close attention to camera viewing angles, lighting conditions,
possible line of site obstructions, and checking for in-wall obstructions where the camera is to be mounted.
Pick a mounting location to optimize the performance of the camera.
• An electrical outlet must be located near the Canon BU series PTZ cameras.
• Pre-wire all cabling as required (see wiring diagram examples).
• For the BU-46H Outdoor PTZ camera, the placement of the camera and any mount fabricated should take into
consideration the environment that it will be placed in (temperature, wind loads, etc.) to assess whether these
conditions conform to the specifications of the BU-46H. The power supply provided with the outdoor camera
must be installed in a weatherproof housing.
MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
Step 1 (for BU-51H, go from Step 1 to Step 4 on page 6):
After determining the optimum location of the camera system, route the Cat. 5e and Coax cables from the camera
to the Vaddio joystick controller. AC power is required for the BU-51H to operate, so a power outlet needs to be
adjacent to the camera location. While the BU-46H operates on 12 volts DC, the power supply provided with the
camera has terminal leads on it. The maximum distance the power supply can be located from the camera is 70
feet using 12 gauge wire, or 40 feet using 14 gauge wire. The power supply for the BU-46H must be installed in a
weatherproof housing or location.
NOTE: Vaddio’s joystick camera controllers transmit and receive data using RS-232. The BU-51H Indoor PTZ
camera utilizes RS-232; however the BU-46H uses RS-422. A protocol converter, included with the Vaddio/Canon
BU-46H system, is required for changing RS-232 to RS-422 in order for the BU-46H to operate. There will be some
additional steps to follow for installation of the BU-46H camera system.
Step 2:
BU-46H Camera System ONLY
Locate both the RJ-45 to DB-9
Adapters and the RS-232 to RS-422
converter. Screw the adapters into
each side of the RS-232 to RS-422
Converter.
Step 3:
BU-46H Camera System ONLY
Locate the 3 foot Cat. 5e patch cable
and connect the RJ-45 to the Control
port on the back of the Vaddio joystick
controller. Connect the other end of
the Cat. 5e cable to the RS-232 side of
the RS-232 to RS-422 converter as
shown.

RS-422

Canon BU Series PTZ Camera Systems
Step 4: BU-46H Camera System ONLY
Carefully loosen the four hex screws from the housing on the back of the pan/tilt base. 18 inches of flexible plastic
conduit is supplied with the camera, along with a coupler connected to the weatherproof housing on the back of the
camera. The opening in the back of the housing is 1.67 inches in diameter if it is determined that another type of
weatherproof conduit is required for the specific installation.
Connect the positive (+) and negative (-) connections to the screw terminals on the camera. Connect the BNC
cable for HD-SDI to the SDI output connector. If sync and/or composite video is required for the installation run
additional coax cables to the Sync and VBS ports on the back of the camera.
Next, remove the 12-pin connector that was supplied with the BU-46H by grasping the collar and pulling outward.
Locate the 12-pin to RJ-45 adapter cable (see the diagram below), and connect the 12-pin connector to the camera.
Plug in the Cat. 5e cable that was run to the camera and connect the RJ-45 connector to the other end of the 12-pin
cable. Note: the RS-232 to RS-422 converter should be placed by the Vaddio joystick controller (see Figure 2).
NOTE: Be sure to turn on the power switch (labeled “POWER SW” in the diagram below) on the pan/tilt head,
before putting the housing back on the pan/tilt base.
