We use the Pelco ICS310 CRV39A Camclosure because it is a general purpose problem solver which can be used indoor or outdoors. Pelco cameras offer an impressive feature set in each of its camera series, and this unit is configured to meet a wide variety of applications, for both new installs or as a loaner while the permanent camera is serviced. I like that it has an integral heater which can be easily de-activated, thereby reducing current draw. The varifocal lens allows adjusting the field of view. It's unusual to be in an environment where the client wants to restrict the field of view, but as a practical matter, some compromises must be made in virtually any static camera installation.
The camera uses conventional coaxial cable for connection to the system, which means the typical gearhead should easily understand the wiring. But a UTP balun can be easily added if you desire. And analog/IP converters can also be employed in a pinch. The only thing that differentiates IP cameras from their analog counterparts is the IP connectivity. The ICS310 has the essential image capturing capabilities.
Its .1 lux sensitivity, 50 db signal to noise ratio and 480 line resolution distinguish this camera from the pack. The camera puts out a hot signal and has AES and AGS backlight compensation and selectable gain. This means that you'll have a good chance of being able to tweak yourself out of a marginal situation.
No camera is perfect for all occasions; but the ICS310 is good for an awful lot of applications.
The Pelco ICS310 Series Camclosure ® integrated camera system incorporates a camera and lens package into a small, unobtrusive, medium-security enclosure.
The system is quick and easy to install in a variety of indoor or outdoor applications. It is ideal for residential, office, mall, hospital, school, parking garage, correction and detention, and other medium-security installations subject to vandalism.
Designed with a microporous membrane vent that equalizes the internal and external pressure differential of the enclosure, the vent offers enhanced ingress protection by repelling water and dust, yet allows for the free passage of vapors to prevent condensation within the enclosure.
The ICS310 Series can be equipped with three options. The ICS310-AP adapter plate allows use of a two-gang electrical box. The ICS310-SS sun shroud helps shield the unit from sun in outdoor applications. The the ICS310-COND allows the unit to be used in applications requiring conduit.
All models are designed for either 12 VDC or 24 VAC operation. Each unit is provided with two quick-connect mating connectors with leads: one for 12 VDC and one for 24 VAC. Just select the appropriate connector for your application, wire the leads to your power source with wing nuts, and snap the connectors together.
Camera options include 1/3-inch format CCD color imager (standard or high resolution) and black and white imager (standard resolution) with fixed focal length lenses of 2.9 mm, 3.6 mm, 6 mm, 8 mm, and 12 mm. Color camera lens options include fixed focal length without iris or 3-9 mm varifocal length with auto iris. Cameras with a varifocal lens have a 1/4-inch format high resolution CCD color imager.
