Rebooting/Resetting the Camera
 Rebooting
To reboot the camera by turning its power off and on, remove the
memory card cover and press the reboot switch.
Recommended Power Cables [Reference]
Cable (AWG)
Rebooting can be done in the Setting Page as well (please refer to
the “Operation Guide”).

24 V AC maximum cable lengthm
 AC Adapter
Please use the dedicated AC Adapter (sold separately). When using the AC Adapter, remove the attached
power connector, and attach the power connector included in the package.
External Device I/O Terminals
External device I/O terminals consist of two input and output systems each. Viewer can be used to check
external device input status and control output to an external device (please refer to the “Operation Guide”).
 External Device Input Terminals (IN1, IN2)
Connecting the Camera
External device input terminals consist of two sets (IN1, IN2) of two terminals, with the negative terminals
connected to the camera interior GND. Connecting cables to the positive and negative terminals and
opening or closing the circuit notifies the Viewer.
Power Connection
Power can be supplied to the camera in the three ways described below. Please be sure to read the user
manual for the dedicated power supply before use.
•When connecting sensors and switches, connect terminals that are electrically isolated from the
respective power and GND.
•Do not push the external device I/O terminal button with too much force. Doing so may cause the
button to remain pushed-in.
•Power supply should conform to all local codes.
•The power supply should also comply with IEC/UL60950-1(SELV/LPS) standards.
 External Device Output Terminals (OUT1, OUT2)
 PoE (Power over Ethernet)
External device output terminals consist of two sets (OUT1, OUT2) of two terminals. The sets have no
polarity. Controls from the Viewer can be used to open and close the circuit between the terminals. Using
optical couplers, the output terminals are isolated from the camera’s internal circuit.
The camera supports PoE functions. Power can be supplied to the camera by using a LAN cable
connected to a PoE HUB that conforms to the IEEE802.3at Type1 standard.
•Check with your dealer for more information about PoE HUB and Midspan technology.
Midspan (a LAN cable power supply device) is a device that, like a PoE HUB, supplies power to the
camera via a LAN cable.
•Some PoE HUBs allow the limitation of power for each port, but applying limits may interfere with
performance. If using this type of PoE HUB, do not limit the operating power.
•Some PoE HUBs have limits for the total power consumption for the ports, which can interfere with
performance when multiple ports are in use. For more information, check the instruction guide for
your PoE HUB.
•When the camera is connected to both a PoE HUB and an external power supply (12 V DC or
24 V AC), power from the power supply first connected is given priority. But when both power
supplies are connected, according to the combination, problems such as failure of the network
connection may occur. If a problem arises, disable one of the power supplies.
 External Power Supply
12 V DC or 24 V AC input can be used.
Connect the power connector included in the package, as shown below.
12 V DC can be connected in a non-polar configuration.
The load connected to the output terminals should be within the following rating range.

 Audio Input Terminal Common LINE IN/MIC IN (monaural input)
Although the camera has a single audio input system, it supports two types of microphone input: LINE IN
and MIC IN. Before using the audio input, please confirm the [Audio Input] in the Setting Page (please refer
to the “Operation Guide”). LINE IN is selected by default.
