Read carefully these safety instructions before installing and using the product. The producer is not responsible for damages and injury, which can occur due to false handling of the product and ignoring the safety instructions. All warranty will be spoiled in this case.

Intended use

IDS industrial cameras are to be used to capture images for visualization and image processing tasks. They are designed for use in industrial environments. Observe the requirements for the proper use of this product. Failure to do so will render the warranty void.

The product is not authorized for use in security relevant applications. If it is used in security relevant applications, the customer is responsible for the necessary approvals.

If the product is modified or changed, all approval becomes invalid. In this case, the customer is responsible for ensuring product conformity.

The warranty expires if the product is improperly disassembled, reworked or repaired by the customer or a third party and IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH assumes no liability for defects. If you need service, please contact the support team.

The product is not a toy. Operate and store out of the reach of children.

Protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD)

Board-level cameras are especially sensitive to electrostatic discharge. Make sure to avoid mechanical or electrical damage of the printed circuit board or its connections. Wear ESD-protective clothing and observe the rules for handling ESD-sensitive components.

Do not touch the printed circuit board while it is powered.

Always hold the board by the edges to avoid the risk of electrostatic discharge damage.

For optimum ESD behavior, a clearance of 4 mm from non-shielded housings must be maintained all the way around. For shielded housings, a smaller clearance is possible.

Attach the board to a conductive surface using the fixing screws. If this is not possible, ensure an insulating connection.

Use connecting cable with a low-resistance shield on both sides.

Installation, operation and maintenance

The product must be connected, taken into operation and maintained only by appropriately qualified personnel. The error-free and safe operation of this product can only be ensured if it is properly transported, stored, set up and assembled, and operated and maintained with due care. The installation, inspection, maintenance, extension, and repair may only be done by authorized personnel.

CAUTION! The housing of the camera is nickel-plated. Regular skin contact with nickel may cause contact allergy. If you have a nickel allergy, skin contact with the housing may cause skin irritation. The symptoms may be delayed. Avoid prolonged skin contact with the camera housing. Wear gloves when handling the camera.

Observe the specifications in the documentation when installing the product.

Do not subject the product to direct sunlight, moisture or shock. Ensure that the IP code of the product meets the requirements for the ambient conditions.

Only operate the product under ambient conditions for which the respective product is approved. The use under other ambient conditions may result in damage.

To avoid any damage to the connectors, only mount or remove the product with the cables disconnected.

Lay cables in such a way that no one is endangered.

Before starting up, check if the electrical wiring corresponds to the specifications in the documentation. Faulty wiring (overvoltage, undervoltage) can result in a damage in the electronics.

Transport

Only use ESD packaging for storage and transport of ESD-sensitive components.

Keep packing materials like films away from children. Abuse may result in suffocation.

Operation and power supply

The camera power supply must meet the requirements for SELV (safety extra low voltage)/LPS (limited power source) or ES1/PS2.

WARNING! Non-approved power supplies for camera operation may cause painful or dangerous electric shock. Serious injury or death may occur. Use a power supply that meet the requirements for SELV (safety extra low voltage)/LPS (limited power source) or ES1/PS2.

In order to ensure electrical safety, we recommend using a shielded connection cable or grounding the camera housing so that the camera housing is connected to ground via the appropriate installation.

WARNING! A USB hub with external power supply may cause painful or dangerous electric shock. Serious injury or death may occur. Use a USB hub that meet the requirements for SELV (safety extra low voltage)/LPS (limited power source) or ES1/PS2.


Avis pour le Canada
Fonctionnement et alimentation électrique

L'alimentation électrique de la caméra doit être conforme aux exigences de sécurité SELV (très basse tension de sécurité)/LPS (source à puissance limitée) ou ES1/PS2.

AVERTISSEMENT ! Avec un bloc d'alimentation non prévu pour les caméras, il existe des risques de décharges électriques douloureuses ou dangereuses. Celles-ci peuvent provoquer des blessures graves, voire mortelles. Utilisez un bloc d'alimentation conforme aux exigences de sécurité SELV (très basse tension de sécurité)/LPS (source à puissance limitée) ou ES1/PS2.

Pour garantir la sécurité électrique, nous recommandons l'utilisation d'un câble de connexion blindé ou la mise à la terre du boîtier de la caméra, afin que ce dernier soit relié correctement à la masse.

AVERTISSEMENT ! Sur un concentrateur USB équipé d'une alimentation externe, il existe des risques de décharges électriques douloureuses ou dangereuses. Celles-ci peuvent provoquer des blessures graves, voire mortelles. Utilisez un concentrateur USB conforme aux exigences de sécurité SELV (très basse tension de sécurité)/LPS (source à puissance limitée) ou ES1/PS2.


CAUTION! As the camera housing may get hot depending on the operating conditions there may be risk of burns. Provide sufficient heat dissipation so that the housing temperature does not exceed 55 °C (131 °F).

NOTICE! Cameras with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) can be powered from an external source or via PoE. The camera should not be supplied with both power sources at the same time, as this may cause irreparable damage to the camera.
