Do not touch the power supply plug or control line during thunder and lightning, as this may result in electric shock.

7

CAUTION

Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if mishandled, could

result in moderate or minor personal injury, and/or property damage.

When Installing the Unit

Never plug in nor remove the power supply plug with wet hands, as doing so may cause electric shock.

When unplugging the power supply cord, be sure to grasp the power supply plug; never pull on the cord itself. Operating the unit with a damaged power supply cord may cause a fire or electric shock. When removing the power cord, be sure to hold its plug to pull.

When moving the unit, be sure to remove its power supply cord from the wall outlet. Moving the unit with the power supply cord connected to the outlet may cause damage to the power supply cord, resulting in fire or electric shock.

Do not block the ventilation slots in the unit's cover. Doing so may cause heat to build up inside the unit and result in fire.

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.

Do not connect a network terminal exposed to excessive voltage to the 100BASE-TX terminal, Hard disk expansion unit connection terminal or Remote control I/O terminal A, as doing so may result in fire or electric shock.

When the Unit is in Use

Do not place heavy objects on the unit as this may cause it to fall or break which may result in personal injury and/or property damage. In addition, the object itself may fall off and cause injury and/or damage.

Clean the unit periodically. Contact your TOA dealer regarding the cleaning. If dust is allowed to accumulate in the unit over a long period of time, a fire may result.

If dust accumulates on the power supply plug or in the wall AC outlet, a fire may result. Clean it periodically. In addition, insert the plug in the wall outlet securely.

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

2. HANDLING PRECAUTIONS

The supplied power supply cord is designed for exclusive use with the Digital Video Recorder. Never use it with other equipment.

Do not connect the10BASE-T/100BASE-TX terminal, Hard disk expansion unit connection terminal or Remote control I/O terminal A to networks that could be exposed to excessive electrical voltage. Failure to follow this instruction could result in electric shock or fire.

It is recommended that the Recorder be always used in locations where the ambient temperature ranges from +5°C to +40°C (41°F to 104°F) and humidity levels of less than 80% to ensure that no condensation is formed.

When moving the Recorder, first disconnect its power supply plug from the AC outlet and then wait at least 30 seconds before moving.

Avoid moving the Recorder suddenly from a cold location to a warm location, or installing it in close proximity to an air-conditioner outlet, as internal condensation could result. When condensation occurs, do not switch on the power until the Recorder has sufficiently dried. Also, when brought into a warm room from the cold outdoors, be sure to leave it unused for at least half a day before using it.

Avoid installing the Recorder in humid or dusty locations, or in locations exposed to direct sunlight, sooty smoke or steam. Note that even in locations which are not particularly dusty, dust may accumulate at the Recorder’s ventilation slots. Because this could cause an extreme rise in temperature inside the Recorder, be sure to clean the ventilation slots periodically after switching off the power and disconnecting the power supply plug from the AC outlet. It is highly recommended that the ventilation slots be cleaned once a year.

When cleaning the Recorder, be sure to switch off the power. Wipe with a soft dry cloth. If it gets very dirty, use the soft cloth slightly moistened in neutral cleanser. Never use volatile spirits like thinner, benzine, or alcohol. Such chemicals may damage its plastic surface.

Do not block the ventilation slots or cooling fan, which could cause the temperature inside the Recorder to rise, possibly resulting in unit failure. Install the Recorder at least 100 mm (3.9 inch) away from the nearest wall surface.

Since the Recorder is equipped with a cooling fan, a motor sound is generated. Avoid installing the Digital Video Recorder in locations which resonate electrical motor noise.

Do not install the Recorder in locations influenced by strong electrical or magnetic fields, as monitor screen pictures may become distorted or the Recorder could fail.

The Recorder can be used only in a commercial and industrial area. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause radio disturbance and TV interference.

Avoid jarring or striking the Recorder. The Recorder is a piece of precision equipment and accidentally dropping it or subjecting it to strong impacts could cause its failure. When transporting the Recorder, carefully pack it in the supplied carton to protect it from shock.

Avoid using the Recorder in locations exposed to vibration. The Recorder is a piece of precision equipment, as this may cause the unit malfunction.

Avoid installing the Recorder vertically or tilting it at extreme angles, since it is designed to be used in a horizontal position only.

About the hard disks

If the hard disk fails, recorded data cannot be restored.

Save important recordings to DVD-R/RW disks.

Recordings copied from video images or video recordings with registered copyrights may not be used for commercial purposes other than for private use without express permission from the copyright holder.

10

TOA takes no responsibility for any incidental damage, such as loss of sales opportunities, that may result.

Avoid using the camera in line-locked mode. Failure to do so may cause the displayed camera images to flicker. Also, video may be lost if power frequency fluctuates significantly.

For models with a single hard disk (versions with model number suffix -08, -1, D08 or D1), the mirror mode is available only when the hard disk expansion unit is connected.

The possibility of data loss due to hard disk failure is greatly reduced, increasing reliability.

12

High Picture Quality and High Frame Rate

Recording and playback can be simultaneously performed at a maximum of 120 IPS. (Image compression method: Motion-JPEG.) Picture quality can be adjusted in five levels, allowing high quality recording or extended recording according to the intended purpose of use. Picture quality and recording intervals can be freely set for individual cameras and recording system.

Auto-recording

The Digital Video Recorder starts recording shortly after power on and makes recordings by preset schedule. The auto-recording function permits Normal recording and Alarm event recording, for each of which different setting can be performed. (Refer to p. 79; Auto-recording setting.)

Network Function

Use this function to remotely monitor or control cameras connected to the Digital Video Recorder, or search or play back their recorded images on a PC web browser.

Email Function

Email can be transmitted when an alarm event or failure occurs. Up to 4 destination addresses can be programmed.

Cascade Connections

Cascade-connecting 8 Digital Video Recorders permits camera images of up to 128 cameras to be viewed on a single monitor display. Up to 4 C-RM1000 Remote Controllers can be connected in a system, allowing each controller to control all Digital Video Recorders and Combination Cameras. (Refer to p. 20; Connections.)

Archive Function

Recorded images can be copied onto the DVD-R/RW (available to model with DVD) or to the USB memory. Viewer software is also downloaded at the same time. (Refer to p. 51; Archive.)

Security Function

Two security settings, using a password and USB key lock, are made available. The use of both methods ensures the highest security. (Refer to p. 60; About security setting.)

Hard disk expansion

Up to 2 Hard Disk Expansion units of C-DA1000-1 (1.2 TB) and/or C-DA1000-2 (2.4 TB) can be connected per Digital Video Recorder. UP to 4.8 TB can be added to the Digital Video Recorder’s hard disk capacity.

C-DR091 Series

C-DR161 Series

M4 x 12 binding head screw (supplied with the MB-23B)

M5 x 12 binding head screw

MB-23B (optional)

(supplied with the MB-23B)

M5 fiber washer

(supplied with the MB-23B)

Note

Use the Digital Video Recorder in locations with ambient temperature of between +5°C and +40°C (41°F and 104°F). When rack-mounting the Digital Video Recorder, the ambient temperature must be kept 35°C (95°F) or below.

Be sure to mount the Digital Video Recorder below the heat generating components, and mount the perforated panel between the Recorder and such a heat generating component as required.

The Digital Video Recorder has a built-in cooling fan. Never block the Recorder’s ventilation slot.

Avoid installing the Digital Video Recorder in locations exposed to vibration.

a)Elevated Operating Ambient Temperature - If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the manufacturer's maximum rated ambient temperature (Tmra).

b)Reduced Air Flow - Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.

c)Mechanical Loading - Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.

d)Circuit Overloading - Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of circuits might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.

e)Reliable Earthing - Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained. Particular attention should be given to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g., use of power strips).

15. RECORDING

15.1. Before Recording

Auto-recordings are normally performed according to the preprogrammed schedule. Operations to start recording such as pressing the key are not required. You can also make recording by pressing the Priority Recording key outside the scheduled time period. Perform disk mode and overwrite settings before recording.

15.1.1. Disk mode

Normal and mirror modes are available to this mode. For models with a single hard disk (versions with a model number suffix -08, -1, D08 or D1), Mirror settings are available only when the hard disk expansion unit is connected. (Refer to p. 101; Equipment maintenance.)

Notes

When the disk mode is changed, the hard disk is initialized, causing the recorded images to be erased. Be sure to determine the disk mode before use.

Unless the disk mode setting is performed, mirror recording cannot be performed as the hard disk is factorypreset to normal mode.

Normal mode: When the first hard disk finishes recording, the second hard disk automatically begins to record. When the settings (recording rate and picture quality) of both normal and mirror modes are set to be identical, the recording time for normal mode is about twice that of mirror mode. The total recording rate is 120 IPS maximum.

Mirror mode: The same image is simultaneously recorded on both hard disks. Even if one of the two hard disks fails, the other hard disk continues to record, allowing all recorded images to be played back. The total recording rate is 60 IPS maximum. Set the disk mode to Mirror when performing mirroring by the two built-in hard disks or when performing mirroring by the built-in hard disk and the hard disk expansion unit.

15.1.2. Recording order to hard disks

Recordings to the built-in hard disks are performed in the following order.

Normal mode

Mirror mode

One hard disk

Two hard disks

One hard disk

Two hard disks

HDD A

HDD A

HDD A

HDD A

 

HDD B

 

 

 

 

 

HDD B

Note

For the recording operation when the expansion unit is connected, refer to the instruction manual enclosed with the expansion unit.

38

15.1.3. Disk recording mode

Overwriting of hard disk recordings can be set to Overwrite or Write Protect. (Refer to p. 76; Recording Settings.)

Overwrite: When all hard disks become full, previous recorded older data is automatically deleted and replaced with newer data.

Write Protect: When all hard disks become full, recording is stopped. To begin recording again, initialize the hard disk and reactivate the Digital Video Recorder, or set the disk-recording mode to "Overwrite."

15.2. Recording Mode

The following recording modes are available to the Digital Video Recorder. Priorities are 1, 2 and 3 in that order.

15.3. Priority Recording

Priority recording is given higher priority over Auto-recording. Use this recording mode to check recording details when, for example, a suspicious person intrudes or when making recording outside the scheduled time period. In the Priority Recording settings, the following settings can be made for individual cameras: recording ON/OFF, recording rate, picture quality and audio ON/OFF. (Refer to p. 77; Priority Recording setting.)

15.3.1. How to perform priority recording

1.Press the Priority Recording key to start the priority recording. To stop a buzzer sound, press the Buzzer Stop key.

2.Hold down the Priority Recording key for 2 seconds or more to terminate the priority recording.

Notes
