This article will show you how to properly install a D50 camera using the Verkada Arm Mount (ACC-MNT-2) and Pendant Cap (ACC-MNT-1). You can also follow these instructions for the D80 because it uses the same baseplate as the D50.
Here below are images of the mounting components and the D50 camera.
Begin by unboxing the camera, screwing the pendant cap to the arm mount. Next, lay out all the items you will need to mount the camera to the pendant cap.
Items you will need:
- D50 camera
- ACC-MNT-2 with the provided B screws
- T10 Torx security screwdriver (Provided with camera)
- Philips screwdriver
This video shows the complete installation of the D50 on the newly built arm
Step 1. Remove the dome of the camera.
Step 2. Remove wall mount plate
In order to get the D50 onto the pendant cap, You will need to remove the wall mount plate (labelled 2) from the baseplate of the camera (labelled 1)
as shown below on the image below.
Use a Philips screwdriver and remove the three screws holding the wall mount plate. Reuse these three screws on the pendant cap. The three screws should form an equilateral triangle on the pendant cap. In the photo below, you will see the camera aligned to all three screws. Notice the D50 mounting plate removed in the background. You can now tighten the three screws accordingly.
Step 3. Creating a watertight seal for the ethernet cable
To create a watertight seal for the Ethernet cable as described in this article. you need to fully tighten the nut. Please notice the orientation of the nut, cable gland and Ethernet cable length connection.
Once the nut is fully tightened, no thread is visible from the nut, and that the grey cable gland is coming out of the pass-through, the Ethernet cable should not be able to slide any more.
Step 4. Place the dome of the camera onto the camera body
Once the Ethernet cable is placed correctly, you can now install the desiccant pack to the base of the dome then screw the dome onto the camera body.
Verify that the mount screws are properly tightened to the camera, tolerances should be nice and fit. No cable should be visible through the dome.
