Axis Communications has announced the release of a camera specially designed to capture clear and sharp licence plate images from vehicles moving at speeds of up to 130 km/h.
“Automatic licence plate recognition has a much wider use than capturing licence plates for traffic fines,” says Brendon Hall, sales manager, Africa at Axis. “These cameras can be used to improve service, efficiency and security at shopping centres, office parks, residential estates and even schools.”
For example, licence plate cameras can be used for parking management to facilitate or automate payment, entry and exit; access control, where the gate is only opened for authorised vehicles and all visiting vehicles are automatically registered; or to alert security at a school of any suspicious vehicle without licence plates, or when a vehicle on a watch list passes by the school.
The AXIS Q1700-LE Licence Plate Camera uses advanced technology to ensure pixel density for licence plate identification in one-lane traffic at a range of up to 100 m during daytime and up to 50 m at night. For a night-time capture range of up to 100 m, the AXIS T90D20 IR-LED Illuminator is available as an optional accessory. It’s compatible with AXIS Camera Station and can be used with server-based or edge analytics from most third-party vendors to perform further analysis of recorded or live material.
This robust and weatherproof camera includes an extra-long weathershield, IP66, NEMA 4X and IK10 ratings, and it can withstand hurricane force winds of up to 60 m/s. Additionally, the grey coloured housing and black weathershield blends right into any traffic environment.
Key features include:
• Sharp licence plate images day and night.
• Handle speeds of up to 130 km/h.
• Capture range of up to 100 m.
• Designed for third-party software.
• Robust design for rough weather.
To ensure easy setup and optimised performance, the camera includes a built-in licence plate capture assistant that automatically adjusts the image settings based on installation height, distance to the vehicle and expected speed. Furthermore, it’s easy to install more cameras to cover additional lanes as needed.
