How Do I Weather Seal a Camera?


The following article explains the steps required to correctly weather seal cameras that are exposed to moisture, as explained by Hanwha Camera manuals.

NOTE: You can find this information in our manuals by searching "Butyl".
NOTE: Cameras should only be sealed using Butyl tape, faliure to do so can result in
voiding of warranty.

Step By Step Guide:

1. Insert it through the arrow direction. See Figure 1.
2. Connect the LAN connector (male) to the cable. See Figure 1.
3. Connect the RJ45 modular jack (female) to the RJ45 connector (male). See Figure 1.

Note: Please, keep each of the parts separated.
