  4. Connect the provided power cable to the power port on the Ground Unit labeled 8-26-VDC, and connect the other end to a power source.

    Verify that both LEDs on the Ground Unit light up, as described in the tables below.

LED Behavior

The CONNEX mini features two LED indicators: a Video LED and a Network LED. In normal operating conditions, both LEDs show a constant white color. No power (or low power) is indicated by the LEDs turning off.

When the indicators are blinking quickly (both LEDs), a system error has been detected. In this case, use the CONNEX Management application to update the software, or contact CONNEX support.

The behaviors of each individual LED are described in the tables below.
