Example of LAN cable
Connect a LAN cable (category 5 or better, straight, STP: For Europe)
Connect a LAN cable (category 5 or better, straight, STP: For Europe) to the network connector.
Use all 4 pairs (8 pins) of the LAN cable.
The maximum cable length is 100 m {328 feet}.
Make sure that the PoE device in use is compliant with IEEE802.3af standard.
When connecting both the 12 V DC power supply and the PoE device for power
supply, 12 V DC will be used for power supply.*
* If a 12 V DC power supply and a PoE hub or router are used at the same time,
network connections may not be possible. In this case, disable the PoE settings.
Refer to the operating instructions of the PoE hub or router in use.
● When the LAN cable is disconnected once, reconnect the cable after around
2 seconds. When the cable is quickly reconnected, the power may not be supplied
from the PoE device.

● If the mounting direction of the camera has already been determined
Align the FRONT direction (the direction of FRONT marker on the camera that indicates the
installation direction when installing the camera) of C template A with the desired direction, and
drill through a 25.4 mm {1 inch} diameter hole.
● If the mounting direction of the camera is not determined yet or if you want to change
the direction of the camera after it has been installed
If you want to be able to change the direction of the camera, drill through a 73 mm {2-7/8 inches} diameter
hole in the center. By doing so you can adjust the mounting direction of the camera in 90° increments.
● When the screen size is adjusted using the WIDE⇔TELE button, the camera’s focus is automatically adjusted with the basic focus adjustment function each time the WIDE⇔TELE button is pressed.
● Depending on the adjustable range or the optical zoom, it must be noted that the shadow of
the enclosure may be projected.
● When mounting the camera on a ceiling, adjust the tilt angle so that the TOP mark above the
lens always comes to the top side.
● When the camera is installed to a wall, the image is reversed in the default settings. To correct the way the image is displayed, rotate the azimuth adjustment ring 180° clockwise, or
select "On" for "Upside-down" from the setup menu. For information about performing the
"Upside-down" setting from the setup menu, refer to the Operating Instructions (included in
the CD-ROM).
● Remove the camera using the reverse order of the installation procedures.
Connect cables to the camera according to the
instructions in “Making connections”, and temporarily fix the camera by inserting attachment mounting
screws into the holes of the attachment plate.
Secure the camera using the
camera fixing screws.
