Bosch VG5-162-EC0 overview

  • 1Description

The white AutoDome 100 Series VG5-162-EC0 Analog Day / Night Outdoor Fixed Dome Camera with Pendant Mount & Clear Acrylic Bubble (NTSC) from Bosch is an easy-to-install, flexible, and fixed camera that records high-quality videos and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. The camera features day / night functionality for capturing high-quality images even in low light conditions. This discrete dome camera has an IP66 rating, ensuring reliable uncompromised functionality even in dusty and potentially wet environments.

AutoDome 100 series cameras, including the VG5-162-EC0 camera, combine the same high-quality housings used with AutoDome PTZ cameras with the imaging technology of Dinion high-resolution color or day / night fixed cameras and varifocal lenses. This camera supports a variety of standard and optional video and data transmission methods, including Bilinx (over coax and UTP) and fiber. Remote control, configuration, and firmware updates can also be performed over these cables, offering you the desired control of your cameras.

The camera maximizes your security investment by integrating with Bosch video storage products (sold separately), as well as the full range of Bosch video over IP products. This simple to install and use camera’s pendant housing with sunshield comes fully assembled and ready for wall or pipe applications with the proper mounting hardware (sold separately). It can also be used in combination with the corner, mast, and roof mounting kits (sold separately), which allow the camera to be easily adapted to the individual site requirements.

High-Performance Camera

The AutoDome 100 series camera has a 1/3" color or day / night CCD sensor with the 15-bit Dinion digital imaging technology to deliver a 32-fold sensitivity improvement and a full 540 horizontal lines of resolution. In addition, the camera incorporates a number of other features.

The XF-Dynamic feature extends the camera's dynamic range to deliver sharper, more detailed images, and good color reproduction accuracy. NightSense is automatically activated under low-light conditions to extend the camera's sensitivity by a factor of 3 during monochrome operation.

The SensUp feature increases integration time by a factor of 10 to dramatically enhance sensitivity. A fully programmable BLC (Backlight Compensation) area of interest and variable BLC level let the day / night camera overcome even the most challenging entrance, vestibule, and lobby applications.

The Auto Black feature enhances contrast by compensating for reduced contrast due to fog, mist, or glare and the Default Shutter automatically adjusts to the lens opening at fast shutter speeds, eliminating motion blur, and providing remarkably clear and detailed images of fast-moving objects.

The camera automatically switches from color to monochrome by removing a mechanically switching IR filter in low-light conditions. This boosts the infrared illumination sensitivity while maintaining superior image quality.


The pendant housing features recessed screws and latches for increased tamper resistance (mounting hardware sold separately). The indoor and outdoor housing is IP66 rated to provide protection. In addition, the pendant housing comes equipped with the VGA-BUBBLE-PCLA Clear, Low-Impact High-Resolution Acrylic Bubble for enhanced image clarity. The outdoor pendant housing provides an operating temperature range down to -40°F (-40°C).

Ease of Installation & Servicing

The CTFID (Configuration Tool for Imaging Devices) software allows operators or technicians to change camera settings and even update firmware from virtually anywhere without need for additional wiring.

Certifications & Approvals

EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility): The camera complies with FCC Part 15, ICES-003, and CE regulations, including EN50130-4 and EN50121-4. It also complies with Product Safety standards such as CE regulations, UL, CSA, EN, and IEC Standards.
