The RoughCam IPM1145 series is a high performance IP-Megapixel camera  series with up to  2 megapixel suitable for applications even under roughest industrial conditions. It offers HDTV resolution and has remote zoom as well as remote focus functions so that opening the housing becomes almost obsolete. In addition, the integrated OptimizedIR LEDs of the RoughCam IPM1145-L makes a supplementary illumination almost unnecessary since, up to a distance of 15 meter, the applicable camera provides its own light!

 

Extremly robust Camera

During the RoughCam IPM114x series development stage, the focus was clearly laid on mechanical precision and high-quality stainless steels. In addition, the modular design of the housing concept allows a free combination of the individual housing components such as different flanges in combination with the housing body.

Media resistance and seals

Due to the high-quality materials used for the RoughCam Series, it meets the requirements of a comprehensive media resistance list! It is also possible to freely select different stainless steel alloys to reflect the best execution for your application. Even a coating or powder coating of the housing is feasible to realize individual media resistance requirements.

The particularly designed GYLON (PTFE) flat sealing does not only ensure the housing to be watertight (IP68) but also supports the resistance towards several chemicals (a media resistance list is available upon request). The extremely robust and scratch-proof as well as high-impact resistant borosilicate glass fits perfectly into the high-quality materials of the housing body.

Reduced installation costs & Power over Ethernet (PoE)

A particularity of the RoughCam IPM1145-L is that the data streams as well as the power is transmitted via a single cable which means that for the installation, only a PoE-Switch or a PoE-Midspan is required.
As the power supply of the camera is executed via Power over Ethernet (PoE according to IEEE 802.3af) via the network, no costly installation of a separate power supply is required.

Small robust housing - great resolution (HD)

With its length of just 210 mm and a diameter of only 113 mm, the RoughCam IPM114x series is smaller than some other camera models – but with more powerful functions.
Thanks to its progressive scan function, the RoughCam IPM114x series is capable of making high-resolution images of moving objects with up to 30 frames per second: Without motion blur! The RoughCam IPM114x series also delivers sharp images in HD resolution.

Integrated IR-LED with OptimizedIR

The RoughCam IPM1145-L dispose of Axis OptimizedIR, an  energy efficient LED technology with adjustable IR illumination angle and discreet IR-LED integration. This allows the camera to illuminate automatically a scene in complete darkness in case of an event or if required by the user. The IR-LED illumination is invisible to the human eye and perfectly suitable to discover objects in distances of up to 15 meters.

 

Remote Zoom and Remote Focus

Thanks to the fact that Zoom and Focus are remotely controllable, also no fine-tuning at site is necessary anymore for the RoughCam IPM1145-L / IPM1145. In addition, it always provides the best viewing angle for the area to be observed.

 

Rough Camera with Day / Night function

The RoughCam IPM114x series is equipped with a day / night function making it particularly suitable for the use in outdoor or indoor areas with poor lighting. When the brightness drops below a certain value, the camera automatically switches to night mode to produce high-quality black and white images using near-infrared light.
Near-infrared light, with a wavelength between 780 and about 1000 nanometers, cannot be perceived by the human eye, however, the image sensor of the RoughCam IPM114x series can recognize and use this light.

Auxiliary contacts

It is possible to flexibly equip the RoughCam IPM114x series with additional lines which can link external digital auxiliary contacts with the camera logic. For example, the external contacts can be used to start or terminate a video recording or to clean the camera’s optical flange via a relay with compressed air or water spray. Via the video operation software SAMCONtrol® this can be done remotely.

Local record stores & Edge Storage

The RoughCam IPM114x series has a microSD / microSDHC slot for a memory card of up to 64 GB (card not included delivery scope) so that each camera disposes of an integrated recording device. In addition, the camera supports the active recording of streams into a central network directory (network storage or file server). The RoughCam IPM1145-L stores data independently without the control of external computers.

Benefits of digital network video surveillance

An IP network video surveillance system offers numerous advantages and special features.
Among other things, benefits include remote access, high image quality, event management, intelligent video capabilities, easy integration possibilities, better scalability, flexibility, and cost efficiency.

• Remote access
• High image quality
• Event management and intelligent video
• Easy, safe and sustainable integration
• Scalability and flexibility
• Cost efficiency

Remote access

Network cameras and video encoders can be accessed and configured remotely so that via our browser-based video management software SAMCONtrol®, multiple authorized users can watch live video images and video recordings at any time and from any networked location worldwide.  This is an advantage in case you want to grant users of other companies, e.g. of a security company, access to the video images as well.

High image quality

For video surveillance applications, a high image quality is essential in order to be able to clearly identify involved persons or objects. With its progressive scan and megapixel technology, the RoughCam IPM114s series offers a much better image quality as well as a higher resolution than any analog CCTV camera. In addition, it is much easier to ensure the image quality in an IP network than in an analog system.

For the current analog systems using a DVR as a recording device, numerous data conversions from analog to digital and vice versa take place: First the camera converts the analog signals into digital data, afterwards they are re-converted to analog signals to allow transmission. Subsequently, the analog signals are re-digitalized again for recording. Each conversion procedure as well as the cable’s signal attenuation influences the image quality. The greater the transmission distance of these analog signals is, the weaker the signal becomes. In a fully digital IP-Surveillance system, images from a network camera are digitized only once and they then remain in the digital format.

As a result, not only unnecessary conversions are avoided but also image degradation due to long transmission distances in a network will not occur. In addition, digital images can be stored and retrieved more easily than it is possible with analog videotapes.

Event management and intelligent video

Often, an excessive amount of video data is recorded and there is not enough time available to analyze it properly. Advanced network cameras and video encoders with integrated intelligence or analysis functions solve this problem by reducing irrelevant video recordings as well as by initiating pre-programmed actions. Such functions are not available for analog systems.

The RoughCam IPM114x series offers integrated functions such as video motion detection, active tampering alarm, and alarm and event management functions. Using these features makes the network cameras and video encoders capable of continuously analyzing the input data in order to detect events and to respond automatically – e.g. by starting a video recording and sending alarm notifications.

Event management functions can be set via the user interface or the network video software. Users can define the alarms or events by the used trigger and specify the time period in which the event has to be active. Furthermore, the actions can be configured (e.g. recording of one or more locations, locally and / or at remote locations, activation of external devices such as sirens, lights and door opener, sending notifications to users).

Easy, safe and sustainable integration

Network video products based on open standards can be integrated simply in combination with video management and application software.

Scalability and flexibility

A network video system can grow with the needs of its users. For IP-based systems, many network cameras and video encoders as well as other types of applications can use the same wired or wireless network for data exchange.

Therefore a variable number of network video products can be added to the system without the need for extensive or expensive changes to the network infrastructure. In an analog system this is not possible as for such systems a particularly designed coaxial cable must be wired directly from each camera to a display / recording station. In comparison, network video products can be virtually placed in any location and incorporated into any network; being more or less open or even strictly protected.


Cost Efficiency

An IP-Surveillance system typically has lower total operating costs than a conventional analog CCTV system. In most cases, an IP network infrastructure does already exist so that a network video application can be easily integrated into the existing infrastructure.  Wired or wireless networking solutions are also much cheaper than coaxial and fiber optic cable used for analog CCTV systems. The administrative as well as the equipment costs are lower as back-end storage applications as well as storage systems can be carried out on non- proprietary standard server as supposed to manufacture specific hardware such as a DVR.
