Peripheral Connections
Wiring of Alarm Input
The alarm input is an open/closed relay. To connect the alarm input to the device, use the following diagram.
If the alarm input is not an open/close relay, please connect an external relay between the alarm input and the
device.
Wiring of Alarm Output
To connect to an alarm output (AC or DC load), use the following diagram:
DC Load Connection Diagram
AC Load Connection Diagram
For DC load, the jumpers can be used within the limit of 12V/1A safely.
To connect an AC load, jumpers should be left open (you must remove the jumper on the motherboard in the
DVR). Use an external relay for safety (as shown in the figure above).
There are 4 jumpers (JP1, JP2, JP3, and JP4) on the motherboard, each corresponding with one alarm output. By
default, jumpers are connected. To connect an AC load, jumpers should be removed.
Example:
If you connect an AC load to the alarm output 3 of the DVR, then you must remove the JP 3.
Alarm Connection
To connect alarm devices to the DVR:
1. Disconnect pluggable block from the ALARM IN /ALARM OUT terminal block.
2. Press and hold the orange part of the pluggable block; insert signal cables into slots and release the orange part.
Ensure signal cables are in tight.
12
Quick Operation Guide of Digital Video Recorder
3. Connect pluggable block back into terminal block.
RS-485 and Controller Connection
For 4ch/8ch/16ch DVR
To connect PTZ to the DVR:
1. Disconnect pluggable block from the RS-485 terminal block.
2. Press and hold the orange part of the pluggable block; insert signal cables into slots and release the orange
part. Ensure signal cables are in tight.
3. Connect A+ on PTZ to D+ on terminal block and B- on controller to D- on terminal block. Fasten stop
screws.
4. Connect pluggable block back into terminal block.
Make sure both the controller and DVR are grounded.
For 24ch/32ch DVR
To connect PTZ to the DVR:
1. Disconnect pluggable block from the RS-485 terminal block.
2. Press and hold the orange part of the pluggable block; insert signal cables into slots and release the orange
part. Ensure signal cables are in tight.
3. Connect A+ on PTZ to T+ on terminal block and B- on controller to T- on terminal block. Fasten stop
screws.
4. Connect pluggable block back into terminal block.
To connect a controller to the DVR:
1. Disconnect pluggable block from the KB terminal block.
2. Press and hold the orange part of the pluggable block; insert signal cables into slots and release the orange
part. Ensure signal cables are in tight.
3. Connect Ta on controller to D+ on terminal block and Tb on controller to D- on terminal block. Fasten stop
13

screws.
4. Connect pluggable block back into terminal block.
Make sure both the controller and DVR are grounded.
Termination Switch Operation
 This function is applicable to certain models only.
 The termination switch is placed on the mainboard instead of the rear panel. Open the upper cover and turn
on/off the SW switch if needed.
Purpose:
To connect the DVR with several speed domes, the bus topology can be adopted, which means the speed domes
are connected with each other via the R+ and R- of RS-485 serial interface. But due to the impedance of 485 wire,
the longer the wire is, the greater the impedance gets.
To avoid the signal reduction caused by the great impedance of long distance transmission, please connect two
120Ω resistors in the circuit: one resistor between the DVR and the nearest speed dome, and the other one after the
furthest speed dome.
Steps:
1. Turn on the SW switches on the DVR and the furthest speed dome.
2. Keep other SW switches off.
The connection diagram and status of each SW switch are shown in the following figure.
