icon warning Precautions for Mounting and Using the Camera

  • It is PROHIBITED to place any explosive or flammable substances near the camera. Do not expose the camera to open fire or high temperature.

  • Do not throw, drop, or collide the camera with other objects. The camera may be damaged by strong shock or vibration. It is PROHIBITED to modify the camera in any form. Do not repair or disassemble the camera by yourself. Mech-Mind shall not be liable for any damage caused by repair or disassembly not performed by Mech-Mind.

  • Do not allow any foreign object, such as metal pieces, dust, paper, and wood chips, to enter the camera. Failure to do so may lead to fire, electric shock, malfunction, etc.

  • Do not use the camera at extremely high or low temperature. The operating temperature range is -10–45°C for the LSR and DEEP series, and 0–45°C for other series.

  • Please use the camera indoors.

  • Please use the camera at elevations below 4,000 meters.

  • Please install the camera in a well-circulated, open place.

icon warning Check the Camera

  • Before using, please check the camera carefully for damage, signs of water entry, suspicious odor, smoke, loose or damaged bolts, etc., and make sure that the camera is in proper working conditions. If any of the above abnormalities occur, please disconnect the power immediately.

  • High temperature will age the power cable. Please check the power cable regularly for signs of aging. If the cable has aged, please contact Mech-Mind to acquire a replacement.

icon warning Usage of Adapter/DIN Rail Power Supply

  • DO NOT use if the power port, adapter/DIN rail power supply, or power socket is wet.

  • DO NOT heat or put the adapter/DIN rail power supply and power cable in fire.

  • For power, please use a 24 V isolated adapter with an output power of at least 90 W or a 24 V isolated DIN rail power supply.

  • Please use the specified voltage. Failure to do so may lead to fire, electric shock, malfunction, etc. The adapter/DIN rail power supply and power cable should be properly grounded. It is recommended to use the isolated adapter/DIN rail power supply provided by Mech-Mind.

  • Power plugs should be properly grounded. Do not place the adapter/DIN rail power supply in a place that is hard to disconnect the power.

  • Please install the DIN rail power supply inside a control cabinet.

icon warning Precautions for Using Laser Cameras

  • DO NOT look into the laser beam or the reflected laser beam directly. Do not look into the laser beam with optical instruments. Failure to do so may lead to eye injuries. DO NOT direct the laser at other people.

  • The laser beam must be lower or higher than and never at eye level.

  • Be cautious of the path of the laser beam. If there is a possibility that personnel may be exposed to the specular or diffuse reflections, block the beam by installing a protective enclosure. Do not enter the areas that the laser/reflected laser output reaches. Do not place any reflective light object (mirror, glass, metal, etc.) in the path of the laser beam.

  • LASER ENERGY - EXPOSURE NEAR APERTURE MAY CAUSE BURNS. NOTE: The risk of skin injury is only likely for highly divergent beams for exposure close to the aperture.

icon warning Notice for Disposal

  • Please comply with local laws and regulations when disposing of the camera to avoid polluting the environment. Please do not dispose of the camera irresponsibly. Improper disposal may pollute the environment.

icon warning This icon indicates that failure to follow the instruction may lead to injury or death.

Mount the Camera

When mounting the camera, please prepare bolts, nuts and wrench of appropriate specifications according to the Dimensions section of Technical Specifications.

Mount through the Camera Bracket

Use the wrench to tighten the two nuts, as shown below.

mount camera bracket
  • The camera bracket is attached to the back of the camera when packaged.

Mount through Threaded Holes

Use the wrench to loosely screw on the bolts in the order specified below, and then fully tighten all the bolts in the specified order.

mount threaded holes
  • Before mounting the camera, use the wrench to detach the camera bracket from the camera.

Connect the Camera

  • Please connect the power cable last. The PWR indicator light should turn on after the cables are connected. If the light is not on, please contact Technical Support.

  • The recommended tightening torque for the bolts is 16 N·m.

  • The DIN rail power supply should be reliably grounded. If using multiple DIN rail power supplies, ensure enough distance in between.

  • When mounting the camera onto a robot arm or other mobile equipment, please fasten the DC power and Ethernet cables on the camera end properly to avoid damaging the cables or connectors due to strain.

Ethernet Cable

As shown below, insert the M12-A connector of the Ethernet cable to the ETH port on the camera, and insert the RJ45 connector to the Ethernet port on the computer.

DC Power Cable

As shown below, insert the M12-A connector of the DC power cable to the DC 24V port on the camera.

connect the camera

Connect the M12-A connectors of the cables to the corresponding ports:

power cable connection
  1. When inserting, align the bump in the connector with the notch in the port.

  2. Tighten the nut. A gap of about 2 mm remains after the nut is fully tightened.

DIN Rail Power Supply

din rail connection

When wiring the DIN rail power supply, wires of the power cable must be inserted to the corresponding input/output terminals, as shown above.

  • The AC power cable has three wires: L, N, and PE (pe).

  • The 24 V DC power cable has three wires: V+, V- and PE (pe).

Cleaning the Camera

When cleaning the surface of the camera, please blow off the dust gently, and then use a clean soft cloth to gently wipe the surface. When cleaning the camera lenses, a liquid lens cleaner and clean lint-free cloth can be used to carefully wipe the lenses to avoid scratching.

icon warning Warning

  • Do not clean the camera with corrosive or volatile solvents such as alcohol, gasoline and kerosene. These substances may damage the exterior and internal structure of the camera.

  • Do not use a pressure washer gun or hose to spray and wash the camera. Water entering the camera may lead to malfunction, fire, or even explosion. Water or other liquid damage to the camera is not covered by the warranty.

Storing the Camera

This product is rated as IP65. The enclosure of the camera can prevent dust from entering and affecting the functions of the camera. Soaking the camera in water or placing it in a highly humid environment may lead to malfunction. Rusting of the internal unit will lead to irreversible damage. When not using, please store the camera in an indoor, dry, cool and well ventilated place. To avoid damage caused by rain, snow, and other undesirable conditions, please do not place the camera outdoors for an extended period of time.

icon warning Warning

  • Disconnect the camera from the power supply when storing to avoid fire.

  • Do not leave the lens pointed at the sun or other intense light source for an extended period of time. Intense light may cause the image sensor to deteriorate and produce a white blur effect in images.
