Good Afternoon,

I have a DCS-3220 D-Link Ethernet Camera, that I will be installing in freezer type environment. I decided on the DCS-60 Enclosure that was shown on the D-Link website. Now that I have both units, I have an issue.

I am using the DWL-P200 Power over Ethernet unit to power my DCS-3220. I also want to power my DCS-60's heater and blower using the same connection. The instructions given with the DCS-60 for wiring it for direct or indirect power were a joke. Tech support for D-Link bumped me to 3rd level support, but I never talked to anyone there, because I was on hold for three hours.

So, to sum up, I have a DCS-3220, powered by a DWL-P200 Power over ethernet adaptor, that I want to mount within a DCS-60 Camera Enclosure, that I hope to power using the same adaptor.

Any suggestions, or even a direct number or contact at D-Link, with support here in the US, instead of the less than helpful support overseas?

Thank you,

Leo R.

Hi Leo,

I will try looking into this for you.

I don't think you will be able to power both the camera and the enclosure with the POE kit. I'm no electrician but I think it would draw too much power from your POE. I think you will have to hard wire the enclosure and run the POE to the camera only.

I will look into it though.

Hey Leo,

I did some research. It looks like you will have to wire them seperatly. The POE kit wont be able to power both.

Sorry!

Hey Leo,
I know this is a really really late reply but I figure I'd reply for the anyone else that runs into wiring issues with these products.

I bought the same set up last July....as you say Dlink is a joke for any real tech support and yes the quick install guide was at best, marginal.

Anyway, my enclosure came with the same heater and blower but it also came with an internal power supply. There were two sets of wires attached to the power supply as well as the DC connector for the camera. In essence, once you hook the sets of wires (one set for the heater, the other for the blower) up to the terminal block (in the appropriate terminals) and attach a 110v cord, the housing now has internal power to power the camera, heater and blower. No one at D-link or the manufacturers seem to know this. Rolling Eyes Hopefully no one has to suffer with D-Links ability to absolve itself.

Can you please see if the internal PSU can be wired with 220V cable. I need an enclosure that I can use here in Europe.

Ok, 2 words...
HEEEEEEEELP ME!!!!
First off, I am a carpenter and am absolutely the most retarded electrician known to man........on that note....ive had a rash of burglaries and have purchased the D-link DCS-60 and DCS 3420 camera. I cant make heads nor tails of the wiring for the heater/blower and have no idea how to get power to the enclosure. Do I use the power cord from the camera? if so, where the heck does it plug into? I understand internal power connector in the enclosure goes to the camera but how does the case get power and do the heater blower wires plug into the back of the camera or somewhere in the enclosure. D-link hasn't gotten back to me for over a week and i really need to get this thing up and running otherwiise I have a $700 paperweight and they may try again to steal a vehicle out of my driveway!! Anyone that has any ideas, suggestions or can help...thank you in advance, its MUCH appreciated at this point.
