Siemens launches a new version of the Solaris dome

Product Profile

Offering the same unparalleled levels of accuracy, speed and configurability as the original SOLARIS, the latest version has several new and powerful features.

The most significant of these new features is the ‘Back up/Restore’ functions, which provides the ability to back-up configuration settings from the camera head and store them within the External Termination Unit (XTU).  This allows for quick and easy replacement of either the camera head or the XTU without the need to manually re-programme all settings.  This feature drastically reduces ‘down time’ on site if either a camera head or XTU is damaged.

SOLARIS now also boasts an optional 26x optical zoom lens, which compliments the existing18x version, with both options delivering remarkable low light capabilities.  An ‘Auto Flip’ function has been added, enabling the camera to track moving targets as they pass beneath the dome.   This feature can easily be disabled/enabled as required. 

  • Auto flip to allow the camera to track moving targets as they pass beneath the dome. 
  • 2 new protocols: Philips and Vicon RS485 telemetry protocols. 
  • Up to 4 programmable patterns
  • Manual control of camera iris via keyboard.
  • Back-up and restore of head settings in XTU (allows heads to be replaced or swapped without the need to manually reprogram all settings).

Additional info Solaris is available for both internal and external use.  Designed with reliability, ease of install and ease of use as priorities, Solaris comes with a range of innovative features.  The External Termination Unit separates power, video, telemetry and alarm cable terminations from the dome itself and provides address and protocol selection via a menu driven LCD display, avoiding the issue of remembering switch and links settings and meaning that the installer need never open the dome camera's enclosure.
