Redvision, the manufacturer of high-performance, rugged CCTV cameras in the UK, now offers a Visor Extension for its VEGA 2010, rugged, camera housing. The Visor Extension, which fits to the housing’s front bezel, then shades the enclosed camera from sunlight and glare, such as in low sun at dawn or dusk. The Visor Extension also has the benefit of reducing rain on the housing’s optical window.
Stephen Lightfoot, technical director at Redvision, explains, “The VEGA 2010, rugged, camera housing is designed to enclose and protect CCTV camera and lens combinations up to 290mm long. The Visor Extension is like a ‘peaked cap’, shading the camera and housing window from extreme lighting conditions, such as dazzling low sun. The Visor Extension protrudes by up to 72mm from the camera window and simply retrofits to the VEGA 2010’s front bezel.”
Silicon wiper to remove dirt and water
The VEGA 2010 also has a Tru-park, silicon wiper option, which removes dirt and water from the camera window. When not in use, the wiper is concealed neatly behind the front bezel. Wiper power comes from the VEGA 2010’s, PoE-driven, CHAT interface board, which also provides power for the camera, washer and built-in heater, along with Ethernet and audio communications.
The VEGA is made from tough, die-cast aluminium, which is both IP67 weather-proof and IK10 impact-rated. It is finished with a marine-grade plating, followed by a durable powder-coating paint. Although the standard colour is light grey (RAL 7035), it can be finished in any RAL colour to order. All cabling is managed inside the housing’s built-in, wall or pedestal mounting bracket, which has an integrated junction box.
The VEGA 2010 is one of the most compact, tough and well-designed, fixed, rugged, camera housings in the security industry.
