Connect the external DC power supply to the <DC IN> terminal of the camera.
Turn on the power switch of the external DC power supply (if the external DC power supply has a power switch).
Turn the <POWER> switch of the camera to <ON>.
Connect after making sure that the output voltage of the external DC power supply is compatible with the rated voltage of the camera.
Select an output amperage for the external DC power supply with a margin above the total amperage of the connected devices.
The total amperage of connected devices can be calculated with the following formula.
Total power consumption ÷ Voltage
When the power of the camera is turned on, inrush current is generated. Insufficient power supply when turning on the power may cause a malfunction. We recommend that you use an external DC power supply that can assure double the capacity of the total power consumption of the camera and connected devices that are turned on by interlock when the power of the camera is turned on (such as lenses). For the DC cable, use a dual-core shielded wire of AWG16 (nominal cross section area 1.309 mm2) or thicker.
Make sure of the pin alignment of the DC output terminal of the external DC power supply and the camera <DC IN> terminal, and connect the polarity correctly.
If the +12 V power supply is mistakenly connected to the GND terminal, it may cause fire or malfunction.
