Redvision, a manufacturer of high-performance and rugged CCTV cameras, has launched the Redvision VEGA 2010, rugged camera housing for tough, hazardous or corrosive, outdoor surveillance applications.
The VEGA 2010 will house fixed camera and lens combinations, up to 290mm in length, offering protection from dirt, moisture and dust ingress.
It is cable-managed, with a built-in junction box, making it simple to install and vandal-resistant. It is also symmetrical, so it can be pedestal mounted, to ceilings, walls and soffits.
Paul Hucker, director at Redvision, explains, “The VEGA 2010 housing is like a fixed camera version of our well established, VOLANT and X-SERIES rugged, PTZ cameras. It includes identical features, like an optically-correct, toughened glass, camera window; a wiper to remove dirt and moisture; and rugged, die-cast aluminum construction. It will be closely followed by the VEGA 2050 range, where 2MP, 4MP and thermal cameras options will be built in.”The housing is both IP67 weather-proof rated and IK10 shock and vandal-resistance rated
Tru-park wiper and CHAT board
The Redvision VEGA camera window has an optional Tru-park, silicon wiper to remove dirt and water which, when not in use, is concealed behind the housing’s front bezel.
The VEGA includes a CHAT interface board for power, audio, washer and wiper control, using the universal, Pelco telemetry protocol. If telemetry is not available, wiper and washer activation intervals can be automated using dip-switches on the CHAT board.
The VEGA is finished with a marine-grade plating, followed by a tough powder coating. It is available in light grey (RAL 7035), as standard, but can be ordered in any other RAL colour, if required. The housing is both IP67 weather-proof rated and IK10 shock and vandal-resistance rated, making it amongst the toughest, fixed housings in the security industry.
