Dual, changeable lens cameras

October 2018 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

The Mobotix M16 AllRound Dual camera is weatherproof and robust, features interchangeable sensor modules as well as the latest Mobotix system technology. The entire camera is weatherproof (IP66). Thanks to its low average power consumption of less than 7 watts and the total absence of mechanical moving parts, the M16 camera has a very broad operating temperature range of -40°C to 60°C.

Two sensor modules (day and night) are used when the M16 is configured for day and night use. Depending on the system, this delivers very good image quality, even in low-light conditions, since an IR-sensitive B&W sensor is used instead of the usual colour sensor with electronic colour fade-out. The sensor modules are positioned directly next to one another in the M16 so that the day lens always covers the same area as the night lens.

A total of 28 different sensor modules are available for the M16. Eight focal lengths, from a super-telephoto lens to a hemispheric one, each available in day or night variants or night variants with LPF for special applications (for example, licence plate recognition). Variants with a CS mount are also available so the customer’s own special lens can also be used with the M16.

From Antarctica to the tropical swamps of Florida, Mobotix cameras are known for their reliability, even under the harshest environmental conditions. Thanks to their lack of mechanical moving parts and multifunctional design, Mobotix outdoor cameras require no additional heating or cooling at temperatures from -30°C to +60°C. The maintenance-free, fibreglass reinforced housing also protects against extremely high humidity levels (non-condensing), corrosion, pollutants and direct sunlight.
