The camera part was made by NEC and puts out an NTSC signal. It was later superseded by the compatible C1002.

According to this posting and verified by experiment,

The camera has a 9-pin D-sub connector that takes in 12 V, around 300 mA at pins 1 (positive) and 3 (ground) and signal is on pins 4 (shield/ground) and 5 (video).

There are two other pins used which bring in calibration voltages and go only to BNC and two test points.
