3-2 Running state test while the Camera power on

After installing the dome camera, make sure the power supply is DC14V (15V).

Once the power it on, check whether the power indicator led on the PCB panel is on. Now the dome camera should be running
self-check – panning, tilting and zooming. After the self-check, the position of the dome is horizontally on the left limiting position, tilt 30º. This means the PTZ camera is in good condition.

Two abnormal states may follow the self-check:

  1. a.    The dome camera makes no action
  2. b.    The dome camera is in the state of pan auto-scanning

If the dome camera is in the state of pan auto-scanning, the scanning should be stopped through the controlling device to avoid possible friction or collision between camera cable and inner housing caused by inappropriate installation of the camera.

After installing the dome cover, control the dome camera to make slow pan/tilt movement, and observe its agility and stability, and check whether there is friction or collision between camera, cable and inner housing.

If the camera movement is unstable and with noise, please check whether the connection between the speed dome and the bracket is vertical, or whether the camera is in good connection with the peg-board. If not, switch off the power supply, then check and re-install the unit following the above-mentioned installation instructions.

If there is friction or collision between the camera, cable and the inner housing, switch off the power and open the vitreous cover to adjust the position of the camera on the suspender, or tidy up the cables inside the inner housing. Then reinstall the vitreous cover.

Switch on the power again, control the dome camera to make slow pan/tilt movement, observe its agility and stability, and check whether there is friction or collision between camera, cable and inner housing.

As per the method introduced above, adjust the unit well.
