With a four-part magnetic modular design, the domes come with a number of other practical features which help minimise the time installers have to spend on site. These include:
– Magnets which lock sensor modules into the dome housing;
– Prefigure IP network settings without the need to remove the camera module from the box;
– The network cable can be inserted through the waterproof gland with the aid of an RJ45 plastic push-through device, negating the need to re-make a cable end; and
– A motorised PTRZ gimbal enables installers to remotely pan, tilt, rotate and zoom the lens position, to set the camera’s field of view.
Uri Guterman, Head of Product & Marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe says: “We believe these features make the Wisenet X Plus dome cameras among the fastest to install and maintain. In a highly competitive market, we are very pleased to provide installers and system integrators with an edge when they bid for video surveillance projects which may have a large number count.”
Fifteen X Plus models include internal, external and flush mounted options. All use the Wisenet 5 DSP chipset. The 2MP models also offer Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) which performs at up to 150dB to produce images in scenes that contain very bright and very dark areas at once. The 5MP models provide 120dB WDR.
Other features include an extended tilt range of up to 85 degrees for wide area coverage, particularly in locations with low ceiling heights; shock-detection via built-in gyro sensors, for detecting unusual physical shocks and generates alerts to enable operators to respond to any incidents; and audio playback on event. Up to five pre-recorded warning messages can be stored on a Wisenet Plus dome and programmed to automatically play when pre-defined events occur. As for environmental protection, the six cameras have a Gore valve to protect their housings against water, salt or corrosive liquids and can be supplied with an optional weather cap. They all have an operating temperature range of minus 58 degrees to 140 degrees F (minus 50 degrees, to 60 degrees C).
