Power Supply DC Connector
Last Updated a year ago

As power supply is one of the parts that fail most often compared to the rest of the equipment, we'd made it easy for customer to do their own replacement after the warranty period without having to engage us to do the replacement.

In order to do so, instead of splicing the wire of the power supply directly to the camera cabling, DC connectors are used since 2012 for all our installation project.

Sometimes due to shifting of equipment, these cables may be tugged on with excessive forcing causing them to be dislodge. Here's what you can do if the cables are dislodge.

1. Turn off the Camera Power
2. Use a Test Pen or any screwdriver that can fits into the screw hole to loosen the connector.
