The ADSDU8E35N 35x SpeedDome Ultra 8E Programmable Dome Camera from American Dynamics offers quality performance with 540 TVL resolution, 35x optical zoom, WDR, Day/Night functionality, DSS, and EIS. The Day/Night and DSS features allow you to clearly see images in scenes as dim as 0.00041 lux. EIS reduces the vibration so the image can be viewed properly and is very useful when the dome is installed in places that subject it to shaking or moving, such as a pole next to a highway. These features combine to make this SpeedDome Ultra 8E Camera suitable for outdoor applications requiring high-resolution images whether up close, far away, or for indoor applications requiring high picture clarity, such as in casinos or retail establishments.
This SpeedDome Ultra 8E camera features powerful zoom capabilities with 420x of total zoom (35x optical zoom with 12x digital magnifier). It also includes powerful features including the WDR capability, which compensates for very bright and dark conditions within the same scene. For low-light applications, a removable IR (infrared) cut filter provides effective viewing in lighting conditions as low as .00041 lux in black and white mode. This camera allows you to further compensate for low lighting conditions using DSS technology that allows the CCD imager to accumulate more light. Additional image adjustments include AGC (automatic gain control) and white balance.
This SpeedDome Ultra 8E Camera supports up to 96 preset positions with user-defined titles and 16 preset sequences with a 10-minute dwell time for optimal viewing flexibility. Sixteen patterns are supported and a pre-programmed, default spiral pan pattern covers the entire viewing area. Each pattern can store up to 99 PTZ commands. Using the Freeze Frame feature before moving to a preset minimizes hard drive usage when video is digitally recorded. This camera also features motion detection and tracking capabilities. A specified area of interest can be tracked within an 8x8 grid matrix. When the dome detects motion within that block, it follows the moving object to keep it in view. Frame noise reduction has been decreased significantly.
Alarms can be processed internally by the dome, externally by the controller, or by both the dome and the controller. Each of the dome’s alarm inputs can automatically call a preset or run a pattern when the alarm is activated. To ensure key areas of a facility are continually monitored, an inactive or unattended dome can be configured to return to the home position after it performs a pre-defined preset, sequence, or pattern. When the dome tilts to its lower limits, an automatic proportional flip feature automatically turns the dome 180°. Alternatively, you can manually flip the dome from the keyboard.
To protect sensitive areas, you can program up to 32 privacy zones of different sizes. These privacy zones automatically change size proportionally when zooming in or out. Each privacy zone functions independently, dependent upon size and location of the zone, having more control over accurate placement. In addition, this Ultra 8E camera provides control of patterns through a menu entry, for easier command of the PTZ functions. High resolution and improved patterns allow for accuracy when maneuvering and controlling the camera.
ZAP (Zoom adjusted programming) automatically adjusts pan and tilt speeds in proportion to zoom position, even at maximum magnification. In addition to SensorNet, Manchester, AD-UTC, NTCIP, and RS-422 protocols, the dome can be controlled via other select manufacturers’ protocols such as Pelco P, Coaxitron, Panasonic UTC, Vicon RS-422, and Bosch Bi phase, thereby making it a suitable choice for customers wanting to replace older PTZs. Additional third party protocols include Pelco D and Pelco Coaxitron UTC.
This SpeedDome Ultra 8E camera generates helpful on-screen text including dome, preset, pattern, alarm, and area names as well as direction indicators. These indicators show the direction in which the dome is currently pointing and moving. For example, you can assign up to sixteen areas of various sizes to identify boundaries within different areas. In addition, the direction indicators display the dome’s degree of tilt. The on-screen text indicates zoom, focus, and iris status. All information is user-definable and can be turned on or off. When turned on, the text can be set to appear either solid or translucent. This ensures that the text is always visible without blocking important parts of the image. The on-screen text supports six languages namely English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, and Portuguese.
A convenient DirectSet feature provides fast access to all of your most frequently used dome features when used with a suitably equipped controller. To ensure the integrity of your security settings, password protection prevents unauthorized use of the on-screen menus. The daisy chain control wiring configurations that are supported are RS-422 (10 domes over a maximum distance of 3000’ on two 22 AWG shielded twisted pairs), SensorNet (32 devices over a maximum distance of 3000’ on one 22 AWG UTP), Manchester (3 domes over a maximum distance of 5000’ on one 18 AWG STP), and AD-UTC (maximum distance per dome is 230’ on 20 AWG RG59U cable).
Sensing of 50/60 Hz lines is automatic and does not require manual adjustment. The fully isolated power supply helps eliminate ground loops. Surge protection is provided for video, code, alarms and power connections. To ensure you have ample time to schedule maintenance, the dome maintains statistics on how long it has been on, duration of pan/tilt/zoom movements, number of presets selected, and other usage information.
The dome incorporates a twist lock release from the mounting base (sold separately) for easy installation and servicing. Power, communication, and video cables (or composite cable) are connected at one time to an I/O PC board in the mounting base so the assembly is simply twist-locked onto the base. Service and maintenance are easy and can be accomplished without a ladder or lift via the installation/removal tool.
Note: The distances supported for daisy chaining are for ADUTC data only. A Matrix keyboard or a controller from which users can call DirectSet commands.
