Connecting the Camera
Power Connection
Power can be supplied to the camera in the three ways described below.
PoE (Power over Ethernet)
The camera supports PoE functions. Power can be supplied to the camera by using a LAN cable
to connect it to a PoE HUB that conforms to the IEEE 802.3af standard.
Check with your Canon sales representative for more information about PoE HUB and Midspan
Some PoE HUBs allow current limits for each port, but applying limits may interfere with performance. If
using this type of PoE HUB, do not limit the operating current.
Some PoE HUBs have total consumption current limits for ports, which can interfere with performance
when multiple ports are in use. For more information, check the instruction guide for your PoE HUB.
Use a category 5 or higher cable 100 m (328 ft.) or less in length for the LAN cable that connects the
camera and the PoE HUB.
When the camera is connected to a switching HUB, changing the connection while the camera is
operating may cause the HUB learning function to interfere with communication. Do not change the
connection when the camera is operating.
The camera can also be connected to an AC adapter (optional) while receiving power from a PoE
HUB. In such cases, the PoE power supply is given priority, and the camera does not use the power
supply from the AC adapter (optional). When the PoE power supply is disconnected, power is supplied
automatically from the AC adapter (optional). Midspan (a LAN cable power supply device) is a device
that, like a PoE HUB, supplies power to the camera via a LAN cable.
External Power Supply
12 VDC or 24 VAC input can be used.
Connect the bundled power connector as shown below.
For 12 VDC and 24 VAC input, use a power supply insulated
from 100 VAC.
Tightening torque: 0.2 N·m (max)
12 VDC can be connected in a non-polar confi guration.
Approx. 4 to 6 mm
The power supply should be within the following voltage range.
(0.16 to 0.24 in.)
24 VAC: Voltage fl uctuation within 10% of 24 VAC (50 Hz or
Power connector
60 Hz ± 0.5 Hz or less)
Current supply capacity of at least 1.0 A per camera
12 VDC: Voltage fl uctuation within 10% of 12 VDC
Current supply capacity of at least 1.5 A per camera
When using a 12 VDC battery power supply, be sure to connect
resistors of at least 0.5 – 1.0
/20 W in series to the power line.
For an external power supply, use a double-insulated device.

Use UL cable (UL-1015 or equivalent) for 12 VDC or 24 VAC wiring.
AC Adapter
Use the dedicated AC adapter PA-V17 (optional).
The camera does not have a power switch. Connecting and disconnecting the LAN cable (PoE power
supply), AC adapter, or external power supply plug turns the power ON and OFF, respectively.
When the camera needs to be rebooted, perform the reboot operation from the camera setting page
(see "Maintenance" in "Setting Page" in the "VB-M700F/VB-M600D/VB-M600VE Operation Guide").
When using the heater unit HU600-VB (optional), use 24 VAC for the VB-M600VE power supply. Poe, 12
VDC and the AC adapter cannot be used.
External Device I/O Terminals
External device I/O terminals consist of two input and output systems each. VB-M600 Viewer
and RM Viewer can be used to check external device input status and control output to an
external device (see "Operating the External Device Output" and "Displaying Event Status" in the
"VB-M700F/VB-M600D/VB-M600VE Operation Guide").
External Device Input Terminals (IN1, IN2)
External device input terminals consist of two sets (IN1, IN2) of two terminals, with the negative
terminal connected to the camera interior GND. Connect two cables to the positive and negative
terminals. When electrical continuity or insulation is created between the terminals, the viewer will
be notifi ed of either status.
When connecting sensors and switches, connect terminals that are electrically isolated from the
respective power and GND.
Do not push the external device I/O terminal button with too much force. Doing so may cause the button
to remain pushed-in.
External Device Output Terminals (OUT1, OUT2)
External device output terminals consist of two sets (OUT1, OUT2) of two terminals. The sets have
no polarity. Controls from the viewer can be used to switch between electrical continuity and
insulation from one terminal to the next. Using optical couplers, the output terminals are isolated
from the camera's internal circuit.
The load connected to the output terminals should be within the following rating range.
Rating between output terminals:

Audio Input/Output Terminals
Each audio input/output terminal has one input system and one output system.
Connecting the camera to an audio input/output device such as a microphone or a speaker with
an amplifi er allows you to send/receive audio through the viewer.
Use the bundled audio interface cable to connect audio input/output devices to the camera.
Use the Φ 3.5 mm (Φ 0.14 in.) monaural mini-jack connector to connect an audio output device
with the audio interface cable.
The long end (has cable marker) from the bifurcation point in the
Cable marker
cable corresponds to the audio output terminal. The short end
(does not have cable marker) from the bifurcation point in the cable
corresponds to the audio input terminal.
Audio Input Dual LINE IN/MIC IN (monaural input)
Although the camera has a single audio input system, it supports two types of microphone input:
LINE IN and MIC IN. Before using the audio input, change the [Audio Input] on the Setting Page
(see "Audio Input" in the "VB-M700F/VB-M600D/VB-M600VE Operation Guide"). LINE IN is
selected by default.
Input terminal: Φ 3.5 mm (Φ 0.14 in.) mini-jack (monaural)
