RoughCam IPQ1656



The RoughCam IPQ1615 is a powerful IP-megapixel camera (2 megapixels) for use in industrial areas – not only offering superb HDTV resolution (1920 x 1080 at 100/120 fps) but also a powerful varifocal lens. The RoughCam IPQ1615 combines excellent image and video performance with outstanding hardware and processing capabilities. It is equipped with a Deep Learning Processor Unit (DLPU). Thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI) with Deep Learning prefect for analytic applications. It can differ between different objects, for example a bus, a car, a person. Furthermore it supports 3rd-party AI applications. Besides a variety of intelligent analytic features help you to make smart decisions it delivers unparalleled light sensitivity (0.05 lx).

Extremely robust IP-camera

During the RoughCam IPQ1615’s development stage the focus was clearly laid on security aspects as well as mechanical precision and high-quality stainless steels. In addition, the modular design of the housing components prior to the camera’s development allows a free combination of the individual housing components such as different flanges in combination with the housing body.

Regarding the technical parameters we have pushed the limits of what is feasible: In the media resistance and the ambient temperature we set standards with the RoughCam series.

Media resistance and seals

Due to the high-quality materials used for the T11 Series, it meets the requirements of a comprehensive media resistance list! 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. 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.


The allowed ambient temperature range of the RoughCam IPQ1615 starts at -60°C and goes up to +60°C. This wide temperature range is possible thanks to our double ptc-ceramic heaters. They ensure that the camera remains ice-free even at -60°C while it doesn't get too hot at higher ambient temperatures. In order to ensure safe use even at high ambient temperatures we equip the cameras with high power and high temperature resistant primary cells to float charging of the battery.

Artificial intelligence meets camera

Cameras have long ceased to be used for purely imaging surveillance. Due to the ever-improving processors and the associated performance of the cameras, the decentralized task of image evaluation can now also be carried out directly on the camera - so-called on-edge solutions. The main advantage of this camera-based evaluation is the lower use of bandwidth, since the actual analysis is carried out on the camera from the raw data and only metadata has to be passed on. This means that events can be reacted to almost in real time.

Deep- und Machine learning make it possible

Motion detection has long made it possible to detect people or vehicles in certain areas. However, the error rate, e.g. due to shadows or objects, was relatively high and the detected movement could not be classified. With the new technology of the ExCam IPQ1615 (intelligent algorithms and deep learning processor unit) it is possible to differentiate between a person and a car in the picture. The object analysis even goes so far that a distinction can be made between cars, trucks and motorcycles. Object analysis is interesting, for example, where the entry of a person into a danger area in which a machine is moving is to be recognized and reported. 

Reduced installation costs & Power over Ethernet (PoE)

A particularity of the RoughCam IPQ1615 is that data as well as power is transmitted via a single cable which means that for the installation, only a PoE-Switch or a PoE-Midspan is required.

Small housing - great resolution (HD)

With its length of just 310 mm and a diameter of only 113 mm, the RoughCam IPQ1615 is smaller than some other camera models – but with more powerful functions. With progressive scan, the RoughCam IPQ1615 is capable of making high-resolution images of moving objects with up to 120 frames per second: Without motion blur! The RoughCam IPQ1615 delivers sharp images in HD resolution (2MP).

Remote Zoom &  Remote Focus

The RoughCam IPQ1615 provides a lens with remote Zoom and remote focus. Opening and closing the housing to adjust the angle of view is not necessary for our RoughCam! All adjustments can be made electronically. The housing has not to be opened! This reduces the installation efforts to a minimum. The pixel count of the camera mechanic can ensure that the pixel resolution of an object fulfills regulatory or customer requirements.

Unparalleled light sensitivity

The RoughCam IPQ1615 delivers razor sharp images in any light. With 2 MP resolution at up to 120 fps, 1/2.8" sensor and Lightfinder, this camera captures more light than ever and enables outstanding image usability even in poor light. The camera also delivers Forensic WDR, to ensures perfect balance in scenes with strong variations in light, and Electronic Im

Day / Night function

The RoughCam IPQ1615 is equipped with a day / night function making it particularly suitable for 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 IPQ1615 can recognize and use this light.

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 IPQ1615 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.

Easy, safe and sustainable integration

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