Network cable specifications

Hardware Specification
Cable rating CAT5e or higher (special connector provided for IP67 rating)
Shielding Shielded or unshielded
Conductor gauge 24 AWG
Conductor arrangement Straight-through EIA-568A or EIA-568B
Cable diameter The RJ45 connector that is shipped with the system accepts CAT5e cable diameters in the range 4.8 - 6.7 mm (0.19 - 0.26 in.).

The bayonet shell supports cable diameters in the range 4 - 8 mm ( 0.16 - 0.31 in.).

Cable length Maximum 100 m (330 ft)
Environmental The network cable must be waterproof and UV-resistant, with a temperature rating appropriate for your climate.
PoE+ standard Power-over-Ethernet; 802.3at Type 2 (25.5 W)
  • Not all hardware that is labeled "PoE+" meets the IEEE 802.3at standard that is required for use with the SharpV.
  • Ensure that the total power consumption of all hardware connected to the PoE+ source does not exceed the power budget of the PoE+ source. Each SharpV camera must be supplied with 25.5 W.

Certifications and compliance

Compliance Specification
Safety IEC/EN 62471. Photobiological safety of lamps and lamp systems
WARNING: Depending on the LED illuminator wavelength option selected for the camera hardware, the light emitted from the device might be visible or invisible to the eye. To limit the danger to your eyes caused by infrared light, stay at least 20 cm (8 in.) from the front of the camera. Ensure that the camera installation location prevents or discourages anyone from looking at the face of the camera from within this distance.
