Mounting the Scanner
This scanner is designed to operate indoors only and can support a max. load of 15.41lbs (=7kg). In order to perform adequately, the device should be securely fastened to a suitable mounting surface. The camera should be correctly mounted and balanced on the scanner. The round-based scanner is installed directly on the mounting bracket.
Tighten the scanner’s mounting screws just enough so that the base is effectively immobilised.
Do not attach the unit to a drywall. Attach the scanner to the mounting bracket using a hex head screw equipped with a locknut or use our camera mounting bracket (CAMB7 or CAMB8).
|Normal Mounting||Inverted Mounting|
|2||LEFT||WHITE||RIGHT||GREEN or YELLOW|
|3||RIGHT||GREEN or YELLOW||LEFT||WHITE|
Note that the “LEFT” and “RIGHT” connections are inverted with inverted mounting of the device.
Inverted Mounting of the Unit
The left-right directions for manual operation are reversed with inverted mounting of the device. Correct the wiring accordingly when connecting the control unit with the scanner: the cores connected to pin 2 and pin 3 at the back of the central unit should be switched. Consult figures “2c” and “2d” at the back of the manual for inverted mounting of the scanner and the camera.
Connecting the Scanner to the Central Unit
The power cable of the scanner can be connected to the connections at the back of the central unit (the scanner uses a 24VAC power supply) for independent and automatic operation. Connect the cores of the cable as shown in the table (see above).
Installing the Limit Stops
The toothed wheel is slotted at intervals of 5°. The coiled (extension) cord with BNC connector is connected to the rear of the scanner. The reversing switch activator (1 in fig. 1 at the back of the manual) is visible between the toothed wheel and the housing on the front side of the unit.
Located on the toothed wheel are two adjustable plastic limit stops (2 and 3 in fig. 1). Both limit stops can be removed, enabling the scanner to rotate 360°.
Perform steps 1 through 5 outlined in “Manual Operation of the Scanner” (see below) to establish approximate limit stop settings before mounting the camera. At least 1 of the limit stops should be installed or the scanner will continue its turning motion. Make sure that the camera covers the required detection area and that the rear of the scanner faces away from the area to be covered.
Manual Operation of the Scanner
- Connect the central unit to a standard 220V-outlet, activate the device and put the “MANUAL/AUTO”-switch in the “MANUAL”-position.
- Hold the ‘LEFT/RIGHT” toggle switch in the “RIGHT”-position until the scanner has reached the desired right hand position.
- Install the first limit stop (2 in fig. 1) just to the right of the switch actuator (1 in fig. 1) by snapping it in place.
- Put the “MANUAL/AUTO”-switch in the “MANUAL”-position and hold the “LEFT/RIGHT”-toggle switch in the “LEFT”-position.
- Install the second limit stop (3 in fig. 1) to the left of the switch actuator (see step 3).
- Mount the camera on the scanner. Read “Mounting the Camera” (see below).
- Have the camera pan to both limits (left and right) to verify the position of the limit stops.
Mounting the Camera
Do not use an auto-iris lens with this unit. This would cause the iris mechanism to wear very quickly, as an auto-iris lens constantly compensates for the varying light level.
Use a screw with a locknut to mount the camera. Place this screw in one of three positions (see 5 in fig. 1) in order to obtain the best possible balance.
The scanner has an off-center pivot which allows the camera to tilt from 10 degrees below horizon level to 90 degrees above or vice versa, depending on how the camera is mounted (see figures at the back of the manual).
Loosen the hex-head screws (4 in fig. 1) with locknut on the side of the mounting bracket to adjust the angle of the camera. Retighten the two screws firmly when the desired angle has been obtained.
