Rugged, outdoor design
The VOLANT has a durable, die-cast aluminium body for rugged, outdoor
operation. The camera is offset to allow viewing vertically downwards
when mounted on a pole or column and allows highly flexible, continuous
rotation in both its pan and tilt axis.
Like Redvision’s highly successful X-SERIES™ cameras,
the VOLANT has a flat, optically-correct, toughened glass camera
window. The toughened glass protects the camera from wet conditions and
provides a flat surface for a silicon wiper to remove dirt and water.
Optically-correct glass means the VOLANT has minimal distortion and the
best possible low light performance.
The VOLANT is IP68 weather-proof rated; IK10 shock and vandal
resistance rated; and passes IEC vibration and salt spray compliance
requirements. The VOLANT also surpasses Redvision’s own in-house shock
and impact testing criteria, designed to replicate conditions in the
most demanding, rugged, surveillance applications.
Infinity™ motors for both fast AND slow movement
The VOLANT uses Infinity direct drive, brushless DC motors for fast, accurate and silent operation.
The Infinity motors produce immense torque. This enables the VOLANT
to pan and tilt at great speed (in excess of 360°/second to a pre-set)
yet hold its position at rest with immense strength. The VOLANT can also
move extremely slowly, enabling an operator to track a target or person
at a great distance. The VOLANT can zoom in on plates and faces at 300m
away, allowing the operator to follow them with ease.
The VOLANT has an aluminium body designed for the toughest
environments. Its Infinity motors are cool running, so can be sealed
against dirt, moisture and dust ingress, for minimal wear and tear. This
ensures the VOLANT gives many years of maintenance-free operation and
low cost of ownership.
Accuracy and stability
The Infinity motors used in the VOLANT are direct drive, so do not
rely on belts or mechanisms for their movement. They deliver minimal
latency and military-level, preset position absolute repeatability
within 0.01°. The Infinity motors also have positional intelligence. If
the VOLANT is knocked or moved out of position, it will recover to its
correct position immediately.
Dual-Adaptive™ LED illumination
The VOLANT includes integrated, Dual-Adaptive IR and white light
illumination. A ring of IR and white-light, ultra-efficient LEDs,
surround the camera. They adjust to provide optimal lighting for any
field of view. Unlike the more commonly available Smart IR
functionality, which adjusts lighting intensity with zoom, the VOLANT
also adjusts the spread of the lighting for optimal scene illumination.
Dual-Adaptive IR and white light illumination is effective at up to 150m in complete darkness.
Silent and secure
The VOLANT is almost silent when it moves, due to its Infinity
motors. Not only does this make the VOLANT unobtrusive when moving, it
also ensures no vibration noise passes through its fixings into
The Infinity DC motors produce almost no sparks in comparison with
the more commonly used AC motors. This makes the VOLANT naturally suited
to hazardous or potentially explosive environments.
