Before you begin
What you should know
WARNING: Do not remove the silicone boots covering the magnets. Genetec is not responsible for scratches to the vehicle’s paint caused by contact with bare magnets.
NOTE: The mount’s magnets are extremely strong, and may be difficult to remove once attached to your vehicle’s roof. If you need to adjust your camera's position after it is attached, you may find it easier to loosen the bolts rather than attempt to move the entire mount.
NOTE: The holding power of the magnetic mounting systems is dependent on surface finish, surface flatness, and thickness of the steel mounting surface. Keep your mounting surface and magnets clean, dry, and free of foreign particles that would prevent good surface contact.
Assemble the magmount base using the
instructions included with the magmount kit.
Tip: Don’t tighten the bolts until after you have properly positioned the camera.
Attach the SharpX pan/tilt/roll bracket to the magmount
base using four hex bolts.
Attach the SharpX camera to the pan/tilt/roll bracket.
- Verify that the roof of your vehicle is clean, dry, and free of debris, and then place the magmounted SharpX in the desired position on your roof.
- Attach the grooved end of the universal window seal to your vehicle’s passenger window. You can cut the seal as needed to fit your window.
