DISCOVER MINI-DOME Enclosure Installation Sheet

Regulatory Compliance
• Do not attempt the disassemble the camera module mounted
within the dome. There are no user-serviceable parts within the
camera module. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.
• Irrespective of whether the camera is in use or not, never face
it towards the sun. Use caution when operating the camera in
the vicinity of spotlights or other bright lights and light reflecting
FCC part 15 Class B
CE: EN55011
ANSI C63.4
CE: EN50130-4
• Do not operate the camera beyond its temperature, humidity or
power source ratings. Please refer to the environmental information provided overleaf.
CSA C22.2
Weather resistance
• Handle the camera with care. Do not abuse the camera. Avoid
striking or shaking it. Improper handling or storage could damage the camera.
Methods for mounting the enclosure
There are three main ways to mount and fix the dome
A: Flush mount using screws
B: Flush mount using locking arms
C: Surface mount using the outer ring
Note: Always use the template provided.
When mounting externally
Turn silver-colored screws clockwise to first extend the locking
arms and then tighten them
against the mounting surface.
Tighten the screws sufficiently
to compress the o-ring moisture
seals located underneath the
screwheads, however: DO NOT
When mounting externally using the four base holes, use the supplied rubber washers (shown in C) within the mounting holes to
ensure moisture resistant seals. Ensure that the cable entry through
either of the knockout panels is suitably sealed against moisture
ingress. Regardless of whether the locking arms are used for installation or are folded away (in favor of another installation method),
always ensure that the locking arm screws are tight enough to
compress the rubber o-rings to maintain the moisture seal.
Packing list
Surface mount: NEMA 4X, IP66
Flush mount: NEMA 4X, IP66
FCC COMPLIANCE: This equipment complies with Part 15 of
the FCC rules for intentional radiators and Class B digital devices
when installed and used in accordance with the instruction
manual. Following these rules provides reasonable protection
against harmful interference from equipment operated in a
commercial area. This equipment should not be installed in a
residential area as it can radiate radio frequency energy that
could interfere with radio communications, a situation the user
would have to fix at their own expense.
CISPR 22 WARNING: This is a Class B product. In a domestic
environment this product may cause radio interference in which
case the user may be required to take adequate measures.
POWER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS: For use with listed Audio/
Video Product and only connected to 15W or less power supply.
Power supply should be a NEC Class 2 / LPS Supply.
or modifications not expressly approved by Sensormatic
Electronics Corporation, the party responsible for FCC compliance,
could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment and
could create a hazardous condition.

Flush mount
Surface mount
Create an aperture in the mounting surface to a diameter of 4.3”
(110mm) as indicated by ‘T5’.
Using locking arms: Place the enclosure (with the locking
arms retracted) into the opening. Use a cross-head screwdriver
to rotate the screws B1 (shown in fig B) until the locking arms,
firstly splay out, and then tighten against the inner face of the
mounting surface. Tighten the screws sufficiently to compress
the o-ring moisture seals located underneath the screwheads,
Using screws: Create two holes at template positions ‘T2’ of
diameter 1⁄4” (7mm) and insert a brown wall plug into each. Use
2 x (no.12 x 11⁄2”) screws.
Create four holes of diameter 1⁄4” (7mm) at template positions
‘T1’. Use 4 x brown wall plugs and 4 x (no.12 x 11⁄2”) screws.
When mounting externally, use a rubber washer at each
mounting hole in the base to ensure moisture resistant seals.
Cable access (in all cases)
Use either the base knockout ‘T3’ or the side knock-out ‘T4’ also
shown in fig E overleaf. Both knockouts are threaded for use with
locking collars (threads are 3⁄4” NPT on the base and 1⁄2” NPT on
the side knockout).
Enclosure Installation Sheet
Installing the dome enclosure
1 Remove the dome cover
Use the supplied Torx driver to loosen (but not remove) the four cover screws. The screws are captive and
will be retained in the lid.
2 Use the template to mark-out and prepare the mounting area
The American Dynamics Discover Mini-Domes were designed to maintain their IP and NEMA ratings independent of the install method chosen. Therefore, all mounting access positions are sealed until they are
ready to be used. For example when surface-mounting the housing, first knock out the screw access holes
that correspond to the template marks “T1”. This can be accomplished by using a cross-point screwdriver.
3 Open the required knock-out panel
E1: Threaded base knock-out
Carefully drill (or tap out) either the base knock-out (E1) or internal side knock-out (E3) to the size
required to allow cable entry. When surface mounting and using the side knock-out (E3), open the cut out
(E4) within the outer ring to the required size by cutting away excess material with a hole cutter, sharp
knife or side cutters.
E2: Washer and screw cable retainer
E3: Threaded internal side knock-out
E4: External side knock-out
4 Mount the dome enclosure
E5: Large rubber gasket
Using one of the mounting schemes discussed overleaf (Methods for mounting the enclosure), fix the
dome enclosure (and outer ring, if necessary) in place. When flush mounting or surface mounting using the
outer ring, ensure that the large rubber gasket (E5) is in place under the lip of the dome enclosure.
Note: When using the outer ring, the two internal ribs of the outer ring must locate into the slots in the
sides of the dome enclosure, adjacent to the two locking arms (which must be retracted).
IMPORTANT: If the dome is being mounted externally using the four base holes, use the supplied rubber
washers within each of the four mounting holes of the dome base to ensure moisture resistant seals (see
fig C overleaf).
E6: Cover index slots
5 Connect the wiring
Feed the preconnected main lead (that terminates in the connections F1 and F2) through the knock-out
hole and connect it to your video out and power in cables. A service jack socket (F3) is also provided for
temporary video connection when focussing the camera.
IMPORTANT: The power supply must be Class 2 certified.
IMPORTANT: If the dome is being mounted externally, use a suitable sealant around the cable access hole
to ensure a moisture resistant seal.
6 Fit the camera assembly
Connect the camera to the fly-connector (F4). For ADCDW cameras only - also connect the OSD lead
between the camera and the middle socket of the smaller circuit board. Place the camera chassis/gimbal
bracket (G1) onto the three mounting pillars within the enclosure. Insert and tighten the three nickelcolored gimbal securing screws (G2).
Note: Gimbal screws are supplied with both the housing and the camera assembly (when supplied separately), therefore, you should have three screws left over.
NEC Class 2 / LPS
Supply Required
7 Adjust the camera position and test
Slightly loosen the three black-colored inner camera chassis locking screws (H1) so that the camera chassis
(H2) becomes free to move. Rotate and pan the camera chassis to the required position and then tighten
the camera chassis locking screws to fix it in position. Carefully fit the camera liner (I1) over the focussed
camera so that it locates fully on the top ring of the camera chassis (I2) and provides an unobstructed
view for the camera lens.
Note: For specific camera adjustments (i.e. focussing and settings), please see the DISCOVER Dome
Camera Sheet.
8 Replace the dome cover
Ensure that the o-ring seal is in position, replace the dome cover (four small internal ribs within the cover
locate within four corresponding index slots (E6) within the enclosure body - these restrict the lid to only
four possible orientations and ensure that the cover screw holes are correctly aligned). Use the supplied
Torx key to tighten the four cover screws - DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
