SDN - 520 Day/NIght camera

Product Profile

The high performance and reliability of Samsung Techwin’s SDN-520 Day/Night CCTV camera has been acknowledged by UK installers who recently voted the camera CCTV Product of the Year.

The installers who are readers of Professional Security Installer were asked by the magazine over a five month period to first nominate  products to be short listed and then to vote for the outright winner.

The SDN-520’s popularity is based in its ability to cope with varying light conditions.  It is designed to provide high quality colour images during the day but thanks to an integral   Infrared cut-filter it can switch to monochrome images when the light falls to a certain level. 

Other Key Features:
  • 480 TV lines for colour and 520 TV lines for monochrome images.
  • 1/3 inch ExView chip.
  • Integral Motion Detection
  • Remote control via RS232 input.
  • Selective automatic shutter control ensures optimum images at all times.
