For people who operate parking
facilities, and property managers interested in monitoring
visitors and traffic, license plate capture can be an important
forensic tool if an incident occurs. You need the ability to
capture clear, sharp video images of small targets on vehicles
that are often in motion. The long range varifocal lens together
with the video processing system in the ECL-640 security camera
is designed to do just that.
We put a strong 1/3" format color
Sony® CCD video sensor behind a 5-50mm varifocal lens
for optimal range and picture quality. It provides crystal
clear color video images during the day and when night falls
the camera turns on a built-in infrared subsystem.
Fifty-three IR LEDs cast a 120' long beam of invisible
light, which is far enough to make placement of this camera
Given that most parking facilities
and properties will have their own light fixtures, this IR
subsystem may seem superfluous. But there may be times when
a light is turned off by accident or on purpose, so it's
good to know your camera can handle the dark. To insure
picture quality stays high we've installed a mechanical IR
filter to eliminate the nuisance of "IR shift" (defocusing
caused by wavelength difference between IR light and visible
This outdoor surveillance camera
is sealed against rain and inclement weather, and has an all metal housing.
You can adjust the lens focus and field manually without
removing the camera from the bracket or disassembling the
camera. A removable/adjustable metal sunshield is included.
Due to the wide variety of mounting possibilities, we do not
include a bracket.
