FIGURE 1. KC-3P CAMERA
B. Select a suitable location for the camera. Install the camera stand or mounting bracket in the selected location using a suitable fastener. The camera stand or mounting bracket must be attached to a structural object, such as a wall stud or ceiling rafter, that supports the weight of the camera and mount. C. The KC-3P Observation Camera has a camera mounting block attached to the bottom of the camera housing. The ¼”20 UNC threaded mounting hole attaches to the bolt on the camera stand or mounting bracket. The two screws on the camera mounting block allow the block to be removed and repositioned on top of the camera housing. NOTE: Do not aim or point the camera towards the sun or into a strong light. D. Attach a CS-mount lens directly to the front of the camera. If a C-mount is used, attach the CS/C lens adapter before attaching the C-mount. E. If an auto-iris lens is used, connect the cable to the terminal block for a video-type auto-iris lens or plug the cable into the dc lens connector for a dc-type auto-iris lens. F. Route the assembled cable from the monitor to the camera. G. Plug the cable into the connector port labeled “MONITOR” on the rear of the camera. H. Plug the other end of the cable into the corresponding camera connector port on the rear of the monitor. I. 1.3
Adjust the lens focus and iris controls for an optimum picture.
MANUAL IRIS LENS ADJUSTMENT When using the Manual Iris lens, turn the Iris to the OPEN position and adjust the manual iris for the appropriate range. Adjust during the brightest conditions, opening the lens without saturating the picture. Set the EI switch to ON. Adjust the lens opening for the minimum F-number yielding a good picture under the brightest scene conditions.
The Manual Iris is used in indoor applications where lighting from windows can considerably affect the light level of the room. 1.4
VIDEO TYPE AUTO IRIS LENS INSTALLATION AND ADJUSTMENT The KC-3P Observation Camera supports video-type auto-iris lenses to adjust for changing light levels. Perform the following steps to install and adjust a video-type auto iris lens. A. Thread the Video-type auto iris lens on to the lens mount. B. Connect the lens control wiring to the three position terminal block on the back of the camera. The following diagram illustrates the pin connections. Red, white, and black are the most common colors used for wiring on video-type auto iris lenses. Pin +B VI G
Name Voltage + Video Ground
Wire Color Red White Black
C. Set the EI switch on the back of the camera to OFF. D. Apply power to the camera. E. Adjust the focus ring on the lens for an optimum picture. If a picture is not visible, set the lens for proper exposure by adjusting the ALC (automatic level control) and Level on the lens. The ALC setting can range between AVG (average) or PK (peak). A mid-range setting is appropriate for most applications. For ALC adjustments: AVG
To slow the reaction of the lens to changing light, set the range to the AVG setting to average the video level from the camera. Use when there are bright spots in the picture such as lights or glare from the sun.
To increase the speed of the lens reaction to the changing light, set the lens adjustment to PK so the lens will adjust to the brightest or peak object in 4
the video. Use this setting if you want to see the brightest object and not the background objects. For Level adjustments: Adjust the Level control for the best picture during the day. A night adjustment may not provide the proper setting for controlling the light during the day. F. Set the back focus of the camera before the final adjustment of the video level. G. If the auto iris has a gain adjustment: 1. If the lens oscillates between open and closed under bright lights, slowly turn the gain adjustment counter clockwise until the oscillating stops. 2. Increase the light getting to the camera by adjusting the level control and re-adjusting the gain control as necessary. 3. Reset the level control as noted in step E. 1.5
DC IRIS LENS INSTALLATION AND ADJUSTMENT The KC-3P Camera supports dc iris lenses. Perform the following steps to install and adjust a dc-type auto iris lens. A. Thread the dc iris lens to the lens mount on the front of the camera. B. Solder the lens control wires to the mini-DIN connector supplied with the camera. Pin 1 2 3 4

C. Plug the connector into the DC IRIS jack on the back of the camera. The connector is polarized and can only be inserted into the jack one way.
D. The EI switch should be in the OFF position. E. Apply power to the KC-3P Camera. 6
F. Adjust the dc Iris lens for an optimum picture. Use the IRIS LEVEL control on the back of the camera for optimum picture quality. 1.6
BACK FOCUS ADJUSTMENT For best results, perform back focus adjustments at night or while using a #6 or #8 welder’s glass in front of the lens. The focus of the camera will change slightly if the camera iris was adjusted on a light scene, then changes to a dark scene. However, the camera will remain in focus if the iris was focused on a dark scene and the scene lightens. A. The lens should be mounted on the camera, then apply power. B. If a picture is visible, focus on the picture. If the picture is not visible, open the iris on the lens. Open the lens as wide as possible by adjusting the iris ring on the lens for the brightest picture or by placing the welders glass in front of the lens and forcing the lens to automatically open. C. When the iris is open to the widest point, re-adjust the focus for a clear picture. If a clear picture is not possible, set the focus ring to midrange. D. Loosen the Back Focus Lock Screw. E. Adjust the Back Focus Ring for a clear picture. F. Tighten the Back Focus Lock Screw. G. Fine tune the focus with the focus ring on the lens. H. Remove the welder’s glass from in front of the lens. I.
Adjust the iris of the lens for the best picture quality.
ZOOM LENS BACK FOCUS ADJUSTMENT The objective of back focusing a zoom lens is similar to that of a fixed focal length camera, except that the back focus is also adjusted to maintain the focus when “zooming” the lens in and out on a scene. 7
A. Choose an object at the farthest range that you wish to look at with a zoom lens. B. Make sure the iris of the lens is wide open. (Do this by adjusting the camera at night or use a welders glass in front of the lens.) C. Adjust the focus to the stop on the far range. D. Adjust the zoom on the lens to obtain the widest picture. E. Loosen the back focus lock screw. F. Adjust the back focus ring for the clearest picture. G. Tighten the back focus lock screw. H. Adjust the zoom on the lens to the far telephoto position. I.
Adjust the back focus ring for the clearest picture.
Adjust the zoom on the lens back to the widest picture.
K. Loosen the back focus screw. L. Readjust the back focus for the clearest picture. M. Tighten the back focus lock screw. N. Repeat the previous steps, as many times as necessary, to maintain a clear picture through the entire zoom range. 1.8
AUDIO DISABLE ADJUSTMENT The audio from the camera may be disabled for use with a camera housing. A. Remove the two Phillips-head screws on top of the camera. B. Remove the two Phillips-head screws from each side of the camera. C. Remove the top half of the camera case. If an intercom station is to be used skip to step G. D. Locate the audio disable jumper on the right rear of the camera. 8
E. Remove the audio jumper. F. Replace the jumper on the center pin and the OFF pin, see diagram. Skip to step I. Move the jumper from the ON and center position to the OFF and center position to disable the audio from the camera to the observation monitor.
AUDIO OFF ON
G. Disconnect the microphone connector by grasping the blackand-white wire next to the connector and pulling. The connector should release with a minimum of effort. H. Coil the microphone cable and cover the connector with electrical tape to avoid possible electrical shorts. Leave the jumper in the ON and center position to use the audio from the intercom station to the observation monitor. Disconnect the Microphone Cable to disable audio from the camera.
