Connect camera adaptors and center adaptors with coaxial cables.
Connect center adaptors and network devices with LAN cables.
We recommend Cat-5e or higher cable for the LAN cable. When using PoE to supply
power to the network camera from the camera adaptor, we recommend using
100 W balanced LAN cable that complies to the ISO/IEC 11801-2002 (IEEE802.3af
Annex 33B).
IMPORTANT
• Use all 4 pairs (8 pins) of the LAN cable.
• The maximum length of LAN cable that can be used is 100 m (328 feet 1 inch).
• When reconnecting the LAN cable, wait for at least 2 seconds after disconnecting
before reconnecting. If the LAN cable is quickly disconnected and then
reconnected, the PoE function may not be able to supply power.

When connecting to network cameras not made by Panasonic, the PoE function
may not be able to supply power using cross-pair LAN cables. Confirm the
specifications of the network camera used before installation.
3.2 Connections
Before proceeding with the connections, turn off the power of the unit and other network
devices that will be connected.
Prepare the necessary peripheral equipment and cables.
The LAN cable and coaxial cable are customer-provided.
IMPORTANT
• Connect the center adaptor to the power outlet only after completing all the
connections.
1. Connect a LAN cable (Cat-5e or higher) to the camera adaptor and network camera.

IMPORTANT
• When connecting the coaxial cable to the unit, make sure that no other
devices are connected to the coaxial cable. Connecting the coaxial cable to
the unit when there are other devices connected (such as an analog CCTV
camera), may cause damage to the connected device.
• When using existing coaxial cables, disconnect other devices that are
connected to the coaxial cable before connecting to the unit.
• Measure the insulation resistance of the coaxial cable (new or existing) before
making connections.
Insulation resistance value: 1 MW or more for DC 500 V
• Confirm the length of the coaxial cable when using the PoE function. The
maximum length is 500 m (1,640 feet 5 inches) when using RG-6/U coaxial
cable (with loop resistance at 20 W or less).
