Safety and maintenance tips
In order to safely use our device, you should read and observe the tips contained
in this instruction manual.
The VueNet EasyLink module is maintenance-free. We recommend
installing it on a stable structure and connecting its power cables in a manner
which would prevent them from being accidentally damaged by the operator

Safety tips
This device has been designed and manufactured with the utmost care for the safety of
its installers and users. For safety reasons, observe all the guidelines in this manual
and peripheral devices' manuals, such as the PC or IP camera. Before installing the
device, carefully read the entire instruction manual. Ensure safe working conditions.
The user's own modifications of the device will prevent its legal use and render the
warranty null and void. The device has passed through the mandatory compliance
assessment and it meets basic requirements in the European New Approach
Directives. The product is CE-marked.
Note: This device can operate within the frequency and power ranges which
might be contradictory to laws applicable in selected countries.
Do not approach the device when it is on at the distance below 30 cm.
R&TTE declaration of conformity
This device meets requirements of the European directive on radio equipment, telecommunications terminals as well as on their mutual identification and compatibility
(Directive 1999/5/CE of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, March
1999).
The contents of this manual comprise proprietary information of CAMSAT and are intended only for use by purchasers of the equipment described herein. In order to copy
or use any part of this manual for purposes other than the application or maintenance
of the described equipment, it is required that the customer should first obtain a written
consent from CAMSAT.
The VueNet EasyLink module is compliant with provisions related to the safety in using
electrical devices. Observe the following guidelines:
•
the power outlet must be earthed in compliance with applicable provisions,
•
before transferring the device or performing any other technical operations, disconnect the power supply,
•
do not use any damaged or worn power supply cables, as they pose a threat to the
user's safety,
•
installation works must be performed by sufficiently qualified technicians, do not use
the device in locations where flammable substances are kept,
•
secure the device so that children or unauthorised persons should not gain access
to it,
•
make certain that the device has been reliably fixed,
•
the device is off only after disconnecting its power supply cables and the cables between it and other devices,
•
if the device is transferred to a room where the temperature is higher than where it
has previously been kept, water vapour may condensate inside its casing, which will
prevent its proper use (Wait until the condensed water evaporates).
Distances and interferences
•
•
•
•
The transmission distance may vary, depending on the frequency, environment, radio waves, buildings, weather conditions, etc.
When the transmitter is near such equipment as the TV set, R-LAN wireless network, another transmitter, or when it is placed between other radio devices, then
the video stream may be interrupted or the devices might even lose the connection.
If this occurs, increase the distance between the interrupted devices and the transmitter.
The signal reception may vary, depending on the transmitter's working height and
angle. If the signal reception is not stable, optimise the antenna settings.
Meteorological radars operating within the frequency ranges of 5,250-5,350 MHz
and 5,650-5,850 MHz have the highest priority. These radars can interrupt the
device operation or even prevent it entirely
WARNING
The antennas used for the transmission from this transmitter must be installed
according to the instruction manual and they must be placed at least 30 cm from
all persons. The transmitter is not compatible with another antenna nor
transmitter.

Preparation for operation
It is recommended that the first start-up and configuration of
the system is done on the desk at small distances.
This can save a lot of valuable time with the configuration of many different cameras.
MASTER receiver and all SLAVE transmitters must be set to the same operating channel
to establish a connection. Each next set working nearby must be set to a different operating channel.
Multipoint Configuration
VueNet EasyLink can be connected in Point-to-Multipoint configuration with up to 4
transmitters to one receiver. These settings are configured by switches 7 and 8 in each
transmitter according to the following formula:
After 90 seconds since power start equipment will make a transparent interconnection sending all IP
addresses connected to the ports of the device.
In the case of connection problems check:
• direction of antennas and if there are no obstacles between them,
• Change the channel number to another one,
• Check
the
power
supply
capacity
or
replace
to
another.
Montage
Assembly bands designed to be mounted on a mast should be inserted into the corresponding holes
in the rear of the body of the device and firmly tighten. Attach the device to the mast with the antenna pointed directly at the point of receiving. Be sure to use two bands. Bands contained in the
kits are designed for outdoor installation and resistant to UV radiation, which guarantees safety.
WARNING
The antenna of the transmitter must "see" optically with an antenna of receiving part.
Do not install the devices at distances of less than 0.5 m from each other.
It is recommended to use a minimum distance of 1 m.
Install receiver and antenna directed exactly to the transmitting point.
Set the desired operating channel according to the table. Channel numbers and polarity of antennas
should be the same in both cooperating transceivers.
Connect the power cables with power.
The device must be powered from the supplied AC adapter 48V PoE which is also used to power IP
camera with a power consumption up to 15.4W.
WARNING
MASTER receiver and all SLAVE transmitters must be set to the same operating channel
to each connection established. Each next set working nearby must be set to a different
operating channel.
For advanced (not required): MASTER receiver and all SLAVE transmitters must be set to
the same operating channel to each connection established. Each next set working nearby
must be set to a different operating channel.
For advanced (not required): VueNet EasyLink enables logging in to the Web panel and
checking multiple link parameters, eg. the strength of the radio signal. To log in to your
dashboard, connect the VueNet EasyLink to a computer with network card set compatible
with addresses according to the table on page 3. Start the web browser and enter the IP address of the wireless device (see table p. 3).

table, set the transmitter number (if there are more transmitters than one).
•
Connect the IP camera using the RJ45 cable to the PORT-2
•
Connect the supplied 48VPoE power adapter to PORT-1
•
Connect the second camera with a network cable RJ45 to the LAN port of the transmitter power supply.
Note: IP cameras will not be powered from the transmitter and
require their own power supply.
•
Receiver powered by PoE (NVR).
•
•
•
Set the dipswitch No. 1 to ON (receiver mode), set the operating channel by a table identical to
the transmitter, set DIP7 and DIP8 to ON (up)
Connect NVR with the network cable to the PORT 1 or LAN port in PoE power supply.
Connect included power supply 48VPoE to PORT 2
Note: Due to the existing PoE voltage of 48V in port 2 connection other than specified in
the instructions can cause damage to the recorder, switch or other IT equipment.
Receiver
powered
with PoE switch (NVR).
•
•
Set the dipswitch No. 1 to ON (receiver mode), set the operating channel by a table
identical to the transmitter, set DIP7 and DIP8 to ON (up)
