Thank you for purchasing TOA's Color Dome Camera.

Please carefully follow the instructions in this manual in order to ensure long, trouble-free use of your color dome camera.


Before installation or use, be sure to carefully read all the instructions in this section for correct and safe operation.

Make sure to observe the instructions in this manual as the conventions of safety symbols and messages regarded as very important precautions are included.

We also recommend you keep this instruction manual handy for future reference.


Do not expose the unit to rain or an environment where it may be splashed by water or other liquids, as doing so may result in fire or electric shock.


Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could result in death or serious personal injury.

Use the unit only with the voltage specified on the unit. Using a voltage higher than that which is specified may result in fire or electric shock.

Use screws and bolts that are appropriate for the ceiling's or wall's structure and composition. Failure to do so may cause the unit to fall, resulting in material damage and possible personal injury.

Install the unit only in a location that can structurally support the weight of the unit and the mounting bracket. Doing otherwise may result in the unit falling down and causing personal injury and/ or property damage.

Do not install the unit outdoors since it is designed for indoor use. If installed outdoors, the aging of parts causes the unit to fall down, possibly resulting in personal injury. Also, when it is exposed to rain, an electric shock may result.

To prevent a fire or electric shock, never open the unit case nor modify the unit as there are high voltage components inside the unit. Refer all servicing to your nearest TOA dealer.

Should any of the following irregularity be found during use, disconnect the power supply and contact your TOA dealer. Do not attempt to further use the unit because a fire or electric shock may result.

·If you detect smoke or a strange smell coming form the unit

·If water or any metallic object gets into the unit

·If the unit falls, or the unit case breaks

·If the power supply cord is damaged (exposure of the core, disconnection, etc.)

·If no image appears

Do not insert nor drop metallic objects or flammable materials in the ventilation slots of the unit's cover, as this may result in fire or electric shock.

Have the unit periodically checked by the dealer from where it was purchased. Should the unit or its mounts corrode or structurally deteriorate, the unit could fall down, possibly resulting in personal injury.

This Class B digital apparatus compliance with Canadian ICES003.

Cet appareil numérique de la classe B est conforme à la norme NMB-003 du Canada.


Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could result in moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage.

Avoid installing the unit in humid or dusty locations, in locations exposed to the direct sunlight, near the heaters, or in locations generating sooty smoke or steam as doing otherwise may result in fire or electric shock.

Note correct polarity (positive and negative orientation) when connecting the power supply cable. Incorrect connection may cause failure of other equipment connected.

Leave the installation of the unit to your TOA dealer because the installation requires expert experience and skills. If the unit falls, this could cause personal injuries.

Do not hang down from the camera as this may cause it to fall down or drop, resulting in personal injury and/ or property damage.

Disconnect the power supply, and unplug the power supply plug from the AC outlet for the safety purposes when cleaning or leaving the unit unused for long periods of time. Doing otherwise may cause a fire or electric shock.

TOA Electronics C-CV202-3 CU User Manual


The C-CV202-3 Color Dome Camera is an indoor-use camera and is equipped with a high-resolution camera and lens. It is designed to operate on 12 V DC, which is supplied by an external power supply unit. Since its 2X vari-focal, auto-iris lens is built inside the camera, its angle of view can be manually adjusted.


Do not direct the camera lens to the sun or strong lighting or light reflection.

Do not give the camera a great shocks or vibration, as this will damage the camera.

It is recommended that the camera be always used in locations where the ambient temperature ranges from -10°C to +50°C and humidity levels of less than 90% to ensure that no condensation is formed.

To clean, wipe with a dry soft cloth. Never use benzene, thinner or chemically processed towel as the unit's plastic or other parts may be deformed or discolored.

When dust has settled on the camera's lens, lightly clean using a commercial camera blower or cleaning paper.

Installing the camera cables in close proximity to fluorescent lamps or other electrical appliances can downgrade the picture quality. In such cases, change the wiring.

If there is a strong electric or magnetic field near the camera, such as television transmission antennas, motors or transformers, this may distort or roll the monitor picture. In such cases, run the entire wiring route through metal conduit tubing.

Do not install the camera in locations where solvents or chemicals are used as the camera's dome cover may be deformed or discolored.

Use the external power supply unit of the following rating. 12 V DC, over 0.5 A
