Redvision will formally launch the VOLANT rugged PTZ camera at IFSEC 2017, stand D1150. The VOLANT is the fastest, quietest, and most accurate PTZ camera in the industry and will be exhibited alongside the new VEGA rugged camera enclosure. Redvision will also be showcasing the company’s well-established, X-SERIES rugged PTZ dome cameras.
VOLANT rugged PTZ camera
Redvision’s VOLANT incorporates many of the design features of its successful X-SERIES. It has a durable, die-cast aluminium body for rugged, outdoor operation; a flat, optically-correct, toughened glass camera window with wiper to remove dirt and water; and a camera design allowing viewing vertically downwards when mounted on a pole or column. It is IP68 weather-proof rated; IK10 shock and vandal resistance rated; and passes IEC vibration, shock, and salt spray compliance requirements.
The VOLANT uses Infinity direct drive, brushless DC motors for fast, accurate and silent operation and highly flexible, continuous rotation in both its pan and tilt axis. It will silently pan at 420°/second to a pre-set, or move extremely slowly to track a target or person at 300m. The Infinity motors deliver minimal latency and military-level, positional accuracy, repeatable to 0.01°. If the VOLANT is knocked or moved out of position, its positional intelligence will recover it to its correct position.
The VOLANT includes integrated, Dual-Adaptive IR and white light LED illuminators, set in a ring surrounding the camera window. These provide optimal lighting in any field of view and are effective up to 150m in complete darkness.
IP and analogue models of the VOLANT cameras are available, including ONVIF compliant, Full HD, IP with 30x optical zoom and SD analogue with 20x or 30x optical zoom.
