Redvision launches the VOLANT™ DUO; a combined thermal and IP, rugged PTZ camera.
Redvision has launched the VOLANT™ Duo; a combined thermal and IP, rugged PTZ camera. It is the fastest, quietest and most accurate, rugged Thermal / IP PTZ camera available in the security industry.
Stephen Lightfoot, technical director at Redvision, explains, “The VOLANT™ Duo offers both thermal and IP sensors in the same rugged, PTZ camera body. The thermal sensor is a 640x512 pixel, 17µm, Uncooled Vox Microbolometer with fixed lens options of 9, 13, 19, 25, 35 and 50mm, for wide angle through to long distance viewing. The CCTV camera has a 2MP, Sony STARVIS™, CMOS sensor with exceptional, low-light performance and 30x optical zoom.
The VOLANT™ Duo PTZ is designed for tough, hazardous and corrosive, outdoor surveillance applications. Like our acclaimed X-SERIES™ rugged PTZ cameras, the VOLANT™ has a die-cast, aluminium body and flat, optically-correct, toughened glass, camera window with a silicon wiper option to keep off dust and moisture.
“The VOLANT™ Duo has an integrated, Dual-Adaptive™ IR and white light LED illuminator option. The LEDs are mounted in a ring surrounding the camera window to provide optimal lighting for the STARVIS sensor, at up to 150m in complete darkness.
“Lastly, the VOLANT™ Duo uses Infinity™ direct drive, brushless DC motors for its fast, accurate and silent operation. These give continuous rotation in both the pan and tilt axis, at up to 360°/second to a preset, but can also move extremely slowly to track a target or person in the distance. The Infinity™ motors deliver military-level, positional accuracy, and if knocked out of position, will recover to their correct position.”
