Connecting to the computer

  1. Plug the power supply into the “24V” port and into a power outlet.

  2. Plug the Ethernet cable into the camera and connect it to your computer.

Note

Ensure that all connections are screwed in tightly. The coupling nut of the M12 screw connectors can in some cases be hard do screw in. However, when installed correctly they provide a robust and reliable connection.
Check System requirements for performance considerations and review performance by observing the status Indication LEDs.

Use the AC/DC adapter supplied with the unit to ensure compliance with emission and immunity standards.

The Zivid unit is protected against reverse polarity and against overheating by a thermistor that physically removes the power.

The Zivid Two camera uses Ethernet communication and needs 10 Gbps for best performance. Your computer may not have a port for 10 Gigabit Ethernet. In that case, you can connect to it using an adaptor for 10GBASE-T (10 Gbps copper Ethernet) to Thunderbolt 3. At a reduced performance you can also use 1000BASE-T and NBASE-T (1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, and 5 Gbps over copper) to USB adapters.

Warning

Use only Zivid approved Ethernet cables.

Network Topology
