Installations/Connections

Caution:

• FOR UL LISTED MODEL(S), ONLY CONNECT 12 V DC CLASS 2 POWER SUPPLY.

This camera is designed to be installed on a ceiling.

Before starting the installation/connection, prepare the required devices and cables.

Before starting the connection, turn off the power of the devices including the camera and the PC or disconnect from the

12 V DC power supply.

Install

When installing the camera on a ceiling, there are two methods; wiring through a hole in the ceiling (☞ page 16) and wiring through a cable guide (unnecessary to make a hole in the ceiling) (☞ page 20).

Important:

• Procure 4 screws (M4 or M6) to secure the camera mount bracket (accessory) to the ceiling according to the material of the installation area. In this case, wood screws and nails should not be used.

When installing on concrete ceiling: Fix with anchor bolts (M6).

(Recommended tightening torque: M4: 1.6 N·m {1.18 lbf·ft}, M6: 5.0 N·m {3.69 lbf·ft})

• Required pull-out capacity of a single screw/bolt is 196 N {19.99 lbf} or more.

• If a ceiling board such as plaster board is too weak to support the total weight, the area shall be sufficiently reinforced or the ceiling mount bracket for the camera WV-Q105 (option), or the ceiling embedding bracket WV-Q155S/

WV-Q155C (option), shall be used.

• When using an outdoor housing to install the product on the ceiling, use the inner cover (provided with WV-Q157 or other optional mount brackets). That can avoid the shape of the camera from reflecting on images.

• When using a mount bracket (option) or inner cover (provided with WV-Q157 or other optional mount brackets), refer to the operating instructions of the bracket in use.

• Remove the cover film from the transparent part of the dome cover after the installation is complete.

• Be sure to install the safety wire to prevent a fall of the camera resulting in injury or accidents in case the mount bracket (accessory) comes off. (Only for models that can be installed with a safety wire)

Troubleshooting

Before asking for repairs, check the symptoms with the following table.

Contact your dealer if a problem cannot be solved even after checking and trying the solution in the table or a problem is not described below.

Symptom Cause/solution

Power is not turned on.

The camera does not move to the preset positions accurately.

When using DC power supply

• Is the 12 V DC power cable plug (accessory) firmly inserted into the 12 V DC power terminals of the camera?

Confirm the power plug is firmly connected.

When using a PoE device for power supply

• Are the PoE device and the network connector on the rear of the camera connected using a LAN cable (category 5, STP*)?

Check whether the connection is appropriately established.

* PAL model only

• Depending on the PoE device, the power supply will stop when the demanded power exceeds its total power limit for all PoE ports.

Refer to the operating instructions of the PoE device in use.

• When the preset positions becomes inaccurate during use, it is possible to correct the positions by executing the position refresh function.

In addition, when "Position refresh" is set for the created schedule, the camera position will be corrected periodically. In some situations, reconfigure the preset positions.

When the camera is panning/tilting, the camera stops panning/tilting and mechanical noise comes from the camera.

The camera starts panning unpredictably.

• The camera position may have become inaccurate. Carry out the refresh position function from the [Default reset] tab of the setup menu.

• This may be caused by noise.

Check the exogenous noise level around the camera.

When using an optional inner cover, upper side of images are hidden (become black) when the tilt angle of the camera is almost level.

• This is not malfunction. This is caused by the shape of the inner cover (WV-Q157 or an accessory of optional mount bracket).

In this case, images may also be washed out depending on the photographic subject when "On" is selected for "AGC" on the setup menu.

When the power is turned on, the live indicator lights or blinks orange.

• Is the LAN cable connected appropriately?

Connect the LAN cable appropriately.

• Is the hub or router connected to the camera operating appropriately?

Check if the hub or router in use is operating appropriately.

• Isn't the LAN cable connected to the camera broken?
