Tyco Security Products, part of Tyco, the world’s largest pure-play fire protection and security company, introduces a significant temperature performance improvement to the Illustra Flex Series of IP cameras. These cost-effective, high definition video cameras give end users a better IP video solution in demanding, colder environments.
The new 1 and 3 megapixel Illustra Flex Outdoor Mini-Domes will operate in -40°C to 50°C (-40°F to 122°F) temperatures using standard PoE (Power over Ethernet). Using PoE instead of a 24vAC power supply lowers the overall power consumption and greatly simplifies the wiring infrastructure necessary for outdoor camera installations. The new Flex outdoor mini-domes make installation more cost effective since there is no longer a need for specialised PoE+ network switches or separate 24vAC power supplies and cabling, saving customers’ time and money.
“The Illustra Flex Series Mini-Dome IP cameras provide our customers with an affordable, yet feature-rich solution,” said Peter Ainsworth, Director of Product Management, EMEA, Tyco Security Products. “The new low temperature performance enhancements enable the outdoor mini-dome cameras to operate in the most demanding conditions using PoE power which is the preferred installation standard used by most customers.”
Excellent low-light colour video quality
Beyond the new temperature performance enhancement, Illustra Flex outdoor mini-domes offer excellent low-light colour video quality with true day/night, integrated IR Illuminators and IK10 vandal rated performance.
These affordable, high quality IP cameras also feature 3D dynamic noise reduction to provide clear, stable video whilst reducing storage requirements, varifocal lenses for maximum viewing area, and IP-66 rating to protect against water and dust damage. The Flex Outdoor Mini-Domes also offer a range of optional mount brackets and accessories making the cameras an attractive solution that can be tailored for almost any installation environment.
