Axis announces T90C infrared illuminator for P33 series outdoor network cameras
For increased visibility in darkness, Axis recently developed the T90C fixed dome IR-LED for all outdoor cameras in the Axis P33 series. The IR illuminator provides fixed angle illumination for network cameras in the series including the P3343-VE, P3344-VE, and P3346-VE.
The illuminator is controlled by a visible light sensor that automatically turns the infrared light on when it becomes dark. The T90C has eight high-intensity LEDs that provide a wide-angle light beam. This gives the P33 fixed dome camera a viewing range of 20 to 25 meters in complete darkness.
The T90C comes with pre-mounted cables and is available in two versions. One version supports low voltage DC input while the other supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) for flexible and cost-effective installation. The illuminator offers long life performance, power consumption of less than 15W and doesn't require any maintenance.
The illuminator mounts on the wall attaching directly to the camera to complement the overall installation. The Axis T90C IR-LED is ideal for situations where installing a separate IR illuminator is not feasible or not desirable for aesthetic reasons. The unit is built to handle tough weather conditions with IP66, IK10, and NEMA 4X ratings. The T90C will be available later in 2011.
