  • The camera is connected to the data input of the PoE power supply. Please connect the camera to the data output of the PoE.
  • A PoE is used instead of a PoE+ power supply.
  • PoE+ power supply is defect.

Alternatively you can supply the camera also with a 12V power supply as the PS12 or PS12A

This depends on the sport and can usually be found in the rulebook. In athletics, for example, the anemometer must be re-calibrated every 5 years (national, Switzerland only) and the photo finish every 4 years (international). In the case of alpine skiing the TD may demand a re-calibration if the A and B systems drift too far apart.
