following is undertaken by a suitably qualified and 

Auto sensing 12VDC/24VAC power supply


It is possible to use 12VDC or 24VAC power source. The camera will automatically 

Ensure correct polarity is observed when connecting the power supply
Reversing the polarity will cause damage to the camera

Do not expose the camera to:

Unstable supply can cause unexpected behaviour and may damage the camera

Use and Storage 

Do not aim at bright objects for long periods of time

Very hot and very cold temperatures (optimum temperature range -20 to +50 deg C) 

Sources of magnetism

Sources of radiation, such as TV, Radio or HF transmitters

Excessive humidity or dust

Do not use solvents as these can damage the finish on the housing


It's important to keep the dome bubble clean, as finger marks on the bubble will reduce 

Use a soft lint free cloth to clean the lens

Clean the body with a soft cloth, using a non bio mild detergent

When transporting the camera, always use original packaging

Fix the dome with screws provided

Severe mechanical viration

Proximity to fluorescent lights or reflective surfaces

10. Cable access

. On any holes not used

Loosen the screw and remove the connector to use cable access

. On the base of the housing

11. Security attachment

Monuting template

The security cord attaches the cover to the housing

A mounting template is included for marking fixing holes

12. Dome cover

The dome cover is made of shock resistant polycarbonate

The figure shows the dome with the base removed

Pass the cable through the conduits fitted to the face and the lower part of the base
The connectors are pre-fitted. Use connectors as necessary

2.Zoom Ring

Turn the zoom ring until you obtain the desired image
The zoom ring is locked by fastening screws. Tighten the fastening screws until the ring is fixed in position

3. Focus Ring

The focus ring is locked by fastening screws. Tighten the fastening screws until the ring is fixed in position

4. Dip switch adjustment (colour model)

The Dip Switches are factory set (in grey)

1:  ESC  

Use this switch to activate automatic shutter mode

2:  FLK (anti fliker)

Use this switch to avoid flicker caused by some fluorescent lighting

(a) BNC for monitor or video device            

3:  BLC (Back light compensation) ON/OFF switch

(b) Power supply cord (12VDC/24VAC)    

Use this switch to give definition to backlit subjects (default: OFF)

(4) Holes for fixing the housing
(5) Holes for cable access (in the base)

4. Clean the hole on the base before joining and install the connector firmly to prevent moisture

4: AWB/AWT : White balance switch. AWT for automatic.

5. Dome housing

Dome housing is made of cast aluminium


To prevent short circuits, avoid touching together the power cables when making the connection

6. LEVEL - Level adjustment (lens)

Used to compensate for varying light levels, turn towards (low) for darker image
Turn towards (high) for clearer image

Camera can be wall or ceiling mounted
