Moxa announces the release of a new IP dome camera that enables more reliable video surveillance performance in harsh outdoor installations.
Able to operate in temperatures ranging from -40°F to 122°F without a fan or heater, the Moxa VPort P26 outdoor IP dome camera is housed in an exceptionally rugged metal enclosure with IP66 rain/dust protection and an IK10 vandal-resistant dome cover. The camera is designed to withstand impacts of up to 20 joules or approximately the impact caused by an 11-pound weight dropped from a height of 16 inches. In addition, the camera has built-in protection from electromagnetic interference and surges, along with a dehumidifying membrane that prevents damage from internal moisture. An SDHC SD card slot permits local storage of video in the event of a network outage.
The VPort P26 features superior imaging performance. It captures high quality images at SVGA resolution (800 x 600), three simultaneous H.264/MJPEG video streams at up to 30 fps, and includes an IR Cut filter for day/night use. Images are enhanced even further with built-in 3D-DNR (3D Digital Noise Reduction), which greatly reduces noise, and WDR (Wide Dynamic Range), which produces more vibrant images in backlit conditions. The adjustable vari-focal lenses can accommodate viewing lengths from 2.2 mm to 12 mm, which offers a lot more range than cameras with a fixed lens.
Using standard IEEE 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet technology, the VPort P26 can receive power through the same cable used for the network connection. Most outdoor IP dome cameras are relatively power-hungry because they require both a heater and fan. Since the VPort P26 requires neither, it boasts a low maximum power consumption of only 11.7 watts, so it can run off of a standard PoE switch and does not require its own separate power supply.
The Moxa VPort P26 is ONVIF-compliant for cost-effective system standardization and interoperability, increasing reliability and making it easier to deploy.
