1) Connect breakout cable to controller and wire the red (POS+) and black (NEG-) wires to the correct terminals on the unplugged power supply.
2) Connect the controller to the camera using the camera cable.
3) Connect the controller to an active internet connection via ethernet.
Note: Contact Samsara if you would like to receive units pre-configured with Wi-Fi credentials.
Connecting a Trigger Input
Triggering from an NPN device
Connect the input common wire (white) to a +10-30 VDC source or the power supply of the VS2. Then, connect the trigger wire (green) to the output of the trigger.
Triggering from a PNP device
Connect the input common wire (white) to a ground source (0 to 3 VDC). Then, connect the trigger wire (green) to the output of the trigger.
Connect for an NPN line
Connect the Output common wire (gray) to the negative supply voltage and connect the Output wire (blue) to the desired device.
Connect for a PNP line
Connect Output Common wire (gray) to the positive supply voltage and connect the Output wire (blue) to the desired device.
