Dahua DH-TPC-ACPT8620C-B: monitoring total darkness

Product Profile

System Overview

Featuring a triple lens Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) camera, this series provides an all-in-one solution that is especially beneficial for long distance video surveillance in outdoor applications. Together with Dahua Thermal and Starlight technology, the camera’s long range capabilities are able to be utilized even at night. The series combines one thermal camera for monitoring in total darkness and one camera with Starlight functionality and a motorized lens for confirming details up close. The selection of a laser range finder or laser illuminator completes the trio - A laser range finder is able to measure the distance between the camera and target, while a laser illuminator is used for illuminating objects to enhance visible-light camera functionality in low-light environments.


Uncooled Vox Technology
Dahua thermal cameras use uncooled Vox sensor technology. Their small size and better performance make them a cost-effective solution for thermal security.

High Sensitivity
High thermal sensitivity (<40mK) allows cameras to capture more image details and temperature difference information.

Fire Detection & Alarm
With built-in fire detection functionality, the camera has the ability to detect fires from long range. Because thermal cameras are sensitive to temperature, they provide higher fire detection accuracy than standard cameras, making them particularly fit for applications such as forest fire prevention.

Intelligent Video System (IVS)
IVS is a built-in video analytics algorithm that delivers intelligent functions to monitor a scene for tripwire violations, intrusion detection, and abandoned or missing objects. A camera with IVS quickly and accurately responds to monitoring events in a specific area.

With a temperature range of -35 °C to +65 °C (-31 °F to +149 °F), the camera is designed for extreme temperature environments. Subjected and certified to rigorous dust and water immersion tests, the IP66 rating makes it suitable for demanding outdoor applications. For enviorments with rain, sleet, snow and fog, an integrated wiper(optional) provides users with clear visibility at all times.

The camera Supporting wide range voltage input(100 ~ 300V AC), suitable for the most unstable conditions for outdoor applications. Its 6 kV lightning rating provides effective protection for both the camera and its structure against lightning.
