FLEXIDOME multi 7000i
FLEXIDOME multi 7000i IR (Non compatible Midspans mentioned)
(new datasheet) FLEXIDOME multi 7000i IR (Compatible Midspan mentioned)
What we learn from the datasheet
Both Multi Imager (IR and NON-IR) have a heater
The camera supports 802.3at type 2 class 4 and 802.3bt type 3 class 5 standards.
It is an IEEE802.3bt compliant device but als compatibele with 802.3at/af compatible devices.
However, please note that some midspans are not compatible
The problem is the midspan. These are non-standard devices with respect to IEEE
when connected to a pure 802.3at device, it can support well, But handshaking fails for class 5 and up.
Since Multi 7000i IR is an IEEE802.3bt compliance, not a pure 802.3at device, for example the NPD-6001B and NPD-9501A have problems, but also Similar variant from other brands
What power sources are working
What power sources Not working:
When connected to a default Cisco switch
In auto-mode the used switch-port don't provide more than 15w, this result in that the camera potentially don't get enough power for example when the IR turns on.
to avoid this and to guarantee enough power on the port, put the switch port to 30w static, or activate 2 event option
Activating the 2-event option.
This can not be done via the switch GUI interface , and also not via the CLI section of the GUI interface.
(we succeeded via a console cable.)
See page 60:
1/0/2 is switch 1 and port number 2
For entering the switch you need to login with switch username and password
This example shows how you can configure 2-event classification.
Device# configure terminal
Device(config)# interface gigabitethernet 1/0/2
Device(config-if)# power inline port 2-event
Ones this is set, you can switch back to auto mode and you will see that the port get 30w assigned
To see the active consumption per port, send CLI “show power inline police”
Example - No IR ON (port 2)
Example - with IR max on (port 2)
