Wiring Instruction for HD-SDI Kits

Here is how to wire up our HD-SDI Kits.

In a HD-SDI Kit you will receive the following items:

DVR - This will be a 4 or 8 channel recorder, with internally fitted hard drive. It comes with its own power supply.

Cameras - as many cameras as ordered

Cables - one cable per camera - 20 metres in length

Camera Power Supply - either one power supply per camera, or one shared power supply with power splitter cable.

If you order a kit with more than 3 cameras you will receive a shared power supply and power splitter cable for every 4 cameras ordered, for example if you order an 8 camera kit you will receive 2 shared power supplies and splitter cable.

1. DVR - Use the power supply in the DVR box to power the DVR, connect a HDMI cable or VGA cable to a monitor or TV and switch on, you should see the IQCCTV Logo followed by a split screen images with no cameras showing yet.

2. Cameras - The camera has 3 coloured connectors, shown on the left of the image below.

Green - This is the HD-SDI connector

Red - This is the power the camera

Yellow - this is unused for this system, it is a non-HD connector typically used by installers with battery powered monitors to view the image while up a ladder for focussing and positioning cameras. 

3 - Connect the 20 metre cable as shown above

NOTE: Ensure you have the cable the correct way around, the red power connector will not fit if the cable is reversed.
