Power Issues When Directly Connecting to an NVR.
If you are using the direct connection method when connecting a POE+ camera to your NVR it is important to consider power consumption. If an NVR exceeds its power consumption limits, then any additional POE or POE+ cameras directly connected to the NVR cannot be powered by the NVR. For example, the NV-41XX-HS series includes 2 different models, 4 POE ports model and 8 POE ports models.
- 4 POE ports model: max 25.5 W per POE+ port, and 50W in total.
- 8 POE ports model: max 25.5 W per POE+ port, and 80W in total.
The power consumption of a single POE camera is around 15.4W. The power consumption of a single POE+ camera is around 25.5W. If the NVR’s POE or POE+ power consumption has been reached, there are a few options that can be used; the additional cameras can be power via an additional POE+ network switch or by using the included power supply.
if you are adding a camera to your NVR as well it is highly recommended to set your camera with a static IP address prior to adding it to the system. A static IP address can only be set in the camera’s web user interface on a computer. For more information on how to set a static IP for your camera visit: amcrest.com/staticIP
