NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. As part of its’ normal operation this device can generate radio frequency energy and if not installed and used in accordance with the installation manual may cause interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur on a particular installation. If the device does cause interference to radio or television reception the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

1) Fit Ferrite beads on all cable to and from the power supply box, within the box walls.

2) Route the composite cable between the camera and the power supply in steel conduit piping over the entire run of the cable up to and including connection to a deep conduit base fitted under the camera and a conduit fitting adaptor in the wall of the PSU box.

3) Contact BOSCH Service Center for further advice.

The EX10 waterproof camera consists of a twopiece injection molded watertight housing with a tough polycarbonate viewing window.

This compact egg-shaped camera can be used for applications wherever environmentally sealed CCD cameras are required. The camera is especially suited for wash-down applications in food processing and industrial clean-room installations or very cold conditions.

The EX10 can be ordered in monochrome or color versions. A rigid nylon mounting bracket is included with the camera, however, an optional metal Ubracket is also available.

A voltage regulator circuit automatically allows for

12V dc or 24V ac operation without any wiring changes. Its wider voltage range also provides protection from voltage surge, transient spikes, and reverse voltage.

The EX10 is available in several models to meet individual requirements or specific needs.

Care should be taken when unpacking. Check the parts list and confirm all items have been located.

Inspect the equipment thoroughly to ensure nothing was damaged in transit.

Contact BOSCH Service Center if a problem is noted, see the rear page of this booklet for contact numbers.

Determine the operating voltage at the installation site. The camera has been prewired for 12Vdc or 24V ac operation before shipment. See Section 2 – Input Power


Determine the optimum location for the camera. See Section 4 - Camera Mounting

All cameras have been tested prior to shipment. After the wiring has been reconnected, it is advisable to check the camera’s operation before installation.


The installation of the EX10 camera is explained in Sections 1 to 4 listed below.

It is important that these steps are followed in sequence:

1. Housing Separation

2. Input Power Connections

3. Camera Re-Assembly

4. Camera Mounting

- 3 -


Separating the two halves of the camera housing allows access to the Voltage Regulator

Board (VRB) and camera. This is only used as a reference since all the settings are preset at the factory.

Step 1.1 - Remove the two housing screws located on each side of the EX10 camera housing.

Step 1.2 - Slide both sections of the housing apart without damaging the camera connecting leads. Disconnect the camera connector to completely separate the two halves of the housing. Ensure that the “O” ring gasket does not pull out of its groove during separation. If the gasket does separate, it is important that it is not lost. Re-insertion the gasket into the groove.

The camera unit is pre-connected with an electrically isolated power board for 24V ac or

12V dc operation with no wiring change or wiring polarity. See Figure 2-1 on page 7 for wiring details.


Input voltage is 10.5VDC to 40VDC for DC input.

The AC input range is 12VAC to 28VAC.

Make sure all wires are properly connected and tightened into the terminal blocks as explained in

Section 2.

Step 3.1 - Check that the orange “O” ring gasket in the rear half of the camera housing has not been dislodged or distorted.

Step 3.2 - Re-connect the camera wiring harness plug back into its connector on the Voltage Regulator Board.

Step 3.3 - Carefully slide the two halves of the camera housing together, making sure that the “O” ring gasket seats properly and the camera harness wires are not pinched.

Step 3.4 - Once the front and rear sections are mated, insert and tighten the housing screws into each side.

Caution: The selected mounting location should

not place the camera in a situation where its environmental specifications could be exceeded.

See Section 6, page 15.

The supplied mounting bracket contains two holes for attachment to any suitable flat surface.

The type of mounting hardware is dependent on the selected surface. e.g., wood, metal, plaster, gyproc, etc.

Refer to Figure 4-1 on page 11.

Once the bracket has been secured, attach the camera housing to the adjustable camera bracket with the supplied mounting knob. Adjust for desired camera viewing angle and tighten the screw located at tip of the mounting bracket.

Refer to Figure 4-2 on page 12.

Note: The power / video cable should be secured in a way that no undue stress is placed on the camera housing or its mounting bracket.
