Redvision X-SERIES™ take toughness to another level

Redvision X-SERIES™ take toughness to another level

Vandal-resistance is the most common toughness rating for CCTV products. It is, in fact, a measure of impact resistance, as defined in European standard EN 62262. Products are issued with an IK rating, from IK 00 denoting no impact protection, through to IK10, the maximum. An IK10 product will resist an impact from a 5kg steel mass dropping or swinging into it, from 500mm. Redvision believes IK10 is not exacting enough. Paul Hucker, Managing Director of Redvision, explains, “A camera might experience far greater forces in real applications. In our own impact testing we swing a 14lb (6.5Kg) sledge hammer, on a 2m handle, at the camera with great force a number of times. The camera resists the impact and... Read More

Redvision has successful Intersec 2016

Redvision followed a successful Intersec Dubai exhibition with the appointment of a number of new, international distributors and value-added resellers (VARs). Intersec is the leading exhibition for the Security & Safety industry in the MENA region. The January 2016 exhibition featured 1,280 exhibitors and more than 31,100 visitors from 127 countries. Before attending Intersec, Redvision used extensive independent testing to verify that its X-SERIES™ cameras would tolerate the regions’ hotter climates, without compromising product functionality, longevity or warranty. The X-SERIES™ passed tests convincingly, confirming the cameras high-quality construction and efficient power management. It also reflected Redvision’s thorough approach to entering a new market, befitting of its market-leading position CCTV manufacturer status. “Intersec enabled Redvision to showcase the X-SERIES™ rugged PTZ...

Don’t feel the heat, use Redvision X-SERIES™ cameras

Don’t feel the heat, use Redvision X-SERIES™ cameras

Before entering the African, Middle Eastern and Southern European markets, Redvision has established its X-SERIES™ camera’s performance in hotter climate conditions. Exceeding the operating temperature of an electrical and electronic product, or the temperature tolerance of the components within it, dramatically shortens its life and jeopardizes warranties. The product operating temperature will be above the ambient climatic temperature, due to the heat generated by components. In the X-SERIES™, the prime contributors are the PTZ motor, LED illuminators and power supply. Exposure to direct sunlight also has a significant effect. Redvision approached TÜV SÜD, a world-leading provider of testing and product certification to carry out a series of independent tests on the X-SERIES™, simulating operation in hotter climates. The test ran... Read More
Redvision launch radar controlled rugged dome

Redvision launch radar controlled rugged dome

Ogier Electronics makes the Scan-360 plug and play radar unit, which is used to control Redvision’s IP-based and analogue rugged domes. The combination can operate as a standalone, automatic PTZ camera system or may be integrated with leading VMS solutions, via a built-in RS485 data port.  Paul Hucker, MD of Redvision, explains, “Intruders, such as people and vehicles, are detected automatically at distances of up to 200 metres, in all weather conditions, day or night. The intruder’s X and Y coordinates are mapped to our X-SERIES™ rugged dome’s pan, tilt and zoom functionality, enabling automatic, real-time tracking. Alternatively, the X-SERIES™ is pointed in the direction of the intruder, so the automatic PTZ tracking functionality of the VMS can take over... Read More

Redvision profiles its X-SERIES™ cameras at Intersec 2016

Redvision is to profile its pioneering, UK manufactured, X-SERIES™ rugged PTZ dome camera range at Intersec 2016. IP and analogue X‑SERIES™ cameras will be on the Redvision stand, S1-E48, with additional IP cameras on the Wavestore, Synectics and Digifort stands. Paul Hucker, MD of Redvision, explains, “Recent temperature testing has proven that the X-SERIES™ cameras can withstand the extreme heat that can occur in the Middle Eastern markets, represented by the Intersec exhibition. Inclusion of the X-SERIES™ on leading VMS providers’ stands demonstrates the wide integration potential for our products.” The X‑SERIES™ cameras are modular and can be configured as fully functional PTZ cameras or as a domes. A wiper can be added to remove water or dirt from the... Read More
