•Completely wrap the cable connections and the ends of cables you are not using,
including the connectors, with waterproof tape up to the cable jacket, so as not to
allow water to enter. Please refer to the waterproofing explanation sheet for details on
how to wrap the waterproofing tape.
•When mounting the camera onto a wall or other upright surface, make sure that the
cables and composite pipe are facing down to prevent rain infiltration.
•If wiring by connecting the camera to the composite pipe (3/4 inch NPSM threaded
hole), bridge the gap using the conduit adapter (sold separately). When connecting
the conduit adapter and the pipe, wrap Teflon tape around the tip of the pipe
to prevent water getting in as necessary, clear any debris, and firmly tighten. If
necessary, apply silicon sealant to seal it tightly after attaching the pipe.
•Firmly fix the dome case to the main unit of the camera with the lock screws, taking
care not to pinch cables between the main unit and dome case.

PoE (Power over Ethernet)
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.
d. I/O interface cable
e. Power interface cable
•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
•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

Installation Guide included with the adapter.
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 load connected to the output terminals should be within the following rating range.
