When connecting SharpX cameras, you must secure the cable connector to the camera to prevent water leakage.


  1. Remove the plastic protector cap from the camera, and put a small amount of dielectric compound (included) on the cable connector threads.
    IMPORTANT: Do not let the dielectric compound touch the contacts inside the cable connector.
  2. Align the notch on the cable connector with the notch on the camera port.
  3. Attach the cable to the camera, and then tighten the outer connector ring clockwise.
    When connecting the camera cable, follow these guidelines:
    • Do not tighten the connector by turning the camera cable.
    • Do not turn the connector from behind the outer ring.
    • Do not use any tools to tighten the connector.
  4. As you turn the connector ring clockwise, move the connector up and down to make sure that the cable connection is tight enough.
