Connecting external power supply).

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 grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

Permanently connected equipment - Incorporate a readily accessible disconnect device in the building installation wiring.

Power lines - Do not locate the camera near overhead power lines, power circuits, or electrical lights, nor where it may contact such power lines, circuits, or lights.

Mounting bracket attachment


1.) Attach the Mounting Bracket to the Camera’s Mounting Block using the six bolts supplied with the bracket

2.) Snug the two halves of the bracket together with the Allen head set screw

3.) Tighten the setscrew enough so that the camera can be adjusted for angle. Do not over-tighten.

4.) Note the angled part of the mounting bracket faces to the rear of the camera

2.4 Camera: Mounting and setup:

Select a suitable location that protects the camera from accidental damage, tampering and environmental conditions exceeding the specifications of the camera to be mounted.


CAUTION! Ensure the selected location is protected from falling objects, accidental contact with moving objects and unintentional interference from personnel. Follow all applicable building codes.

These mounting guidelines should be followed:

1.) Locate the bracket such that it cannot be easily interfered with, either intentionally or accidentally.

2.) Select a smooth, flat mounting surface to ensure proper sealing.

The surface must also be capable of supporting the combined weight of the camera and mounting hardware under all expected conditions of vibration and temperature. Camera performs best mounted 3-6m off the ground.

3.) Secure all cabling.

Camera Setup:

To determine if the camera is receiving a picture:

1.) Make sure the supplied software is installed in your PC/laptop computer (For Camera Configuration and Software Viewing

Setup, refer to full version Installation Manual available on the enclosed CD-ROM -Section 4).

2.) Connect the camera to the PC/laptop and power up the camera.

Follow the prompts. See section 2 of full version Installation

Manual available on the enclosed CD-ROM for more detail.

3.) Launch Configuration Manager or web-browser. Refer to

Configuration Manager User Manual for information. Refer to section 4 of full version Installation Manual available on the enclosed CD-ROM for more detail on camera configuration via web browser.

2. 5 Camera lens adjustments and window selection

For optimum picture quality, the camera lens should be as close as possible to the inside face of the viewing window, without touching.

For focus adjustment follow the steps below.

1.) Loosen the four bolts from the extrusion

2.) Remove the faceplate, window and the lens foam, set aside.

Make sure the photocell is not dislodged.

3.) Perform the proper lens adjustments as per section 2.6

Loosen four bolts

Vari-focal and “auto iris” control adjustment



: Use Infra-Red Pass filter to cover the lens during focusing to simulate low light conditions on scene for correct 24-hour focusing.

For camera with manual iris lens, the camera should be focused with the lens iris fully opened to simulate the worst possible depth of field.

Using a Infra-Red Pass filter will ensure the iris is fully open for correct setup and adjustment.

Note that statement above is applicable only for Day/Night or IR version cameras.

Set screws



1.) Loosen the lens set screws for focus/zoom adjustments

2.) The setscrew marked N ←→ ∞ is used for image focus

3.) The setscrew marked T←→ W is used for telephoto or wide-angle settings.

4.) Re-tighten the setscrews after focus adjustments have been completed.

IR Adjustment


MAN30IPB Rev.0

10 en | EX30-IP

The EX30IP needs to be powered-up while making the LED power adjustments. Cover the photocell to turn the LEDs “ON” (850nm

LEDs will have a slight red glow). Adjust the LED power if they are too bright or too dim. For IR power adjustment, rotate VR1. Clockwise is high and counter-clockwise is low

The photocell is factory set optimum level. In some conditions such as with bright foreground objects the camera may switch too early or too late. For photocell “On/Off” light-level adjustment, rotate IR

Adjustment Pot. Clockwise is off and counter-clockwise is on.

Re-assemble the IP board into the chassis and carefully attach the rear cover.


Camera re-assembly

Make sure all wires are properly connected, all holes are sealed against moisture penetration, and all mounting screws are tight.

1.) Position the photocell properly in the small hole of the window foam.

2.) Slide the lens foam over the camera lens. Make sure the foam is snug and as close to the faceplate viewing window as possible and the photocell is secure with an unobstructed view.

3.) Attach the window, faceplate, and the rear cover to the camera housing. Tighten the four bolts.

4.) Tighten the camera’s adjustable mounting bracket after the desired viewing angle has been determined.

5.) Power-up the camera and check its operation.
