Step 4: Prepare the Flex Conduit
1. From the network side, insert the Ethernet cable and other cables (if any) through the flex
conduit.
NOTE: To connect an external power adaptor, digital input/output (DI/DO) or serial devices,
insert the cables without connectors through the flex conduit and as well as audio
input/output device cables at this point.
2. Insert the flex conduit with Ethernet cable through the pole mount. Pull enough length to
connect the cable to the camera.
3. Insert the clamping nut through the flex conduit.

Installation Guide
Appendices
This section describes the procedures in preparing the external devices that you can connect to
the camera. The camera supports DC12V power input, Digital Input and Output (DI/DO), Audio
Input and Output devices, as well as Serial Devices like a Pan-Tilt (PT) Scanner using the
bundled terminal blocks. The use of these devices, however, is optional.
Connecting a Power Adaptor (Optional)
In case of using a non-PoE switch or your PoE switch has limited power supply, you can
purchase a power adaptor and directly connect the camera to a power outlet. The power adaptor
must be connected to the supplied terminal block before use.
To do this, follow the procedures below:
1. Loosen the screws of the 12V and GND pins of the power terminal block.
2. Take note that a standard power adaptor cable has two (2) different wires:
Connects to GND Pin
White stripe: Connects to 12V Pin
13

Installation Guide
3. Connect the wire with the white stripe to the 12V pin and the other to the GND pin.
4. Tighten the screws of the 12V pin and the GND pins to secure the wire connection.
5. Set the prepared power adaptor for connection later. Below is an example of a power adaptor
with an attached terminal block.
NOTE: The power adaptor is not bundled in the package.

Connecting DI/DO Devices (Optional)
Depending on your surveillance needs, you may connect digital input or output devices to your
camera to trigger events or notifications.
Digital Input (DI) devices can be used to notify the camera about an activity in the camera site. DI
can be triggers of events. For example, you can connect a “panic button” to the camera; as such
when the panic button is pressed, the alarm signal will be sent through the camera. Other
common DI device applications are emergency button, smoke detector, passive infrared sensor,
etc.
Digital Output (DO) devices are external devices that are activated by the camera upon an event
inside the camera. For example, you can connect an “alarm horn” to the camera; as such when
an event occurs inside the camera (e.g. detected intruder), the alarm horn will sound. Other
common DO device applications are motion-triggered lights, electric fence, magnetic door locks,
etc.
You can connect up to two DI and two DO devices to your camera.
Loosen the pin screw, insert the wire, and tighten the screw to secure the wire. See the following
tables on how to map the pins.

Connect the wires of the one input device to DI2 (Pin 2)

Connect the wires of another input device to DI1 (Pin 6)
and GND (Pin 8).
The table below shows the DI/DO connection specifications:

Typical Connection
Based on these specifications, if the DI device has a voltage of 0V ~ 30V or the DO device has a
voltage of < 24V (<100mA), then the camera can supply internal power to these devices and
there is no need to connect the DI/DO device to an external power source.
In this case, wire connection to Pins 1 to 4. Use the GND and DI2 pins to connect a DI device and
use the 12V and DO2 pins to connect a DO device. See wiring scheme below:
Consequently, to connect a second DI or DO device, wire the connection to Pins 5 to 8.

High Voltage DO Device Connection
Even though the camera provides 12V power, this may not be enough for some high voltage DO
devices, such as a ceiling light or a motor that opens or closes a gate. In this case, there is a
need to connect an external relay. See wiring scheme below:
Note that when choosing an appropriate relay, please refer to its specifications and make sure
they match the above design. The triggering circuit voltage has to be around 12V DC and the
switch-controlled circuit voltage has to match the external power supply (e.g. 110V AC or 220V
AC).
The illustration below is a graphic example of connecting a relay to a high voltage DO device.

Installation Guide
Connecting a Serial Device (Optional)
The camera can be connected to a Pan-Tilt (PT) Scanner (Pan-Tilt Head) using the serial port
connector. This allows the zoom camera to do pan and tilt using the Pelco-D protocol. Most PT
scanners accept Pelco-D and Pelco-P protocol commands via RS-485 or RS-422 connection,
which are both supported by your camera.
Check the connection available on the PT scanner and connect it to your camera following the
procedures below.
1. Map the wires from the PT scanner to your camera using the supplied terminal block
according to one of the tables below.

labeled as "A” or “485 -”, etc. Refer to the scanner documentation or contact the
manufacturer to verify the corresponding pin labels and ensure proper wiring connection.
