Industrial-grade IP dome camera

Feb. 14, 2013
Moxa's rugged VPort P26 IP dome camera supports PoE and installs outdoors with no fan or heater required.

Moxa (Brea, CA) has developed an IP dome camera that it says enables more reliable video surveillance performance in harsh outdoor environments. 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 -- 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 de-humidifying membrane that prevents damage from internal moisture. An SDHC SD card slot permits local storage of video in the event of a network outage.

Along with industrial-grade features, 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 further enhanced with built-in 3D-DNR [3D Digital Noise Reduction] technology, which greatly reduces noise, and WDR [Wide Dynamic Range], which produces more vibrant images in backlit conditions. The camera's adjustable vari-focal lenses can accommodate viewing lengths from 2.2 mm to 12 mm, offering more range than fixed-lens cameras.

Using standard IEEE 802.3af PoE technology, the VPort P26 can receive power through the same cable used for the network connection. Many outdoor IP dome cameras are relatively power-hungry because they require both a heater and fan. Since the VPort P26 requires neither, it has 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, notes Moxa.

The Moxa VPort P26 is ONVIF-compliant for cost-effective system standardization and interoperability, increasing reliability and making it easier to deploy. Also, Moxa has partnered with leading video management software providers to achieve close integration of Moxa's video surveillance products with third-party management systems.
