A SCSI port is provided to connect external storage devices for expanded storage.
Connect the external SCSI hard disk drive (RAID) cable to the high-density 68-pin
female UltraWide SCSI port. The length of SCSI cable should not exceed
1.5 meters. You can connect up to 15 UltraWide SCSI devices with SCSI IDs set
to 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 respectively.
Do NOT set the SCSI ID to 7 because the ID number 7 was assigned to the Host.
The SCSI bus must be terminated properly, otherwise the DVR will not operate properly.
Do NOT connect the SCSI device while the DVR power is on. The DVR
must be powered down to connect the SCSI device and powered up again
after the SCSI device has been connected. Power up the SCSI device so it
is ready for operation in advance of powering up the DVR.
If the SCSI device is shut down while the device is operating, the DVR
system may not work normally.
The DVR can be networked using the 10/100 MB Ethernet connector. Connect a
Cat5 cable with an RJ-45 jack to the DVR connector. The DVR can be networked
for remote monitoring, searching, configuration and software upgrades. See
Chapter 3 — Configuration for configuring the Ethernet connections.
