The Q6042-C Outdoor PTZ Dome Network Camera with Active Cooling from Axis Communications records videos in an extended D1 resolution with 36x optical zoom with autofocus to cover large areas with accuracy. The camera provides reliable surveillance in environments such as deserts, where high ambient temperatures and solar radiation require cameras to operate in extreme heat. The outdoor-ready camera is ideal for use at construction and open-pit mining sites, along pipelines, and for city surveillance.
With a built-in active cooling system, the Q6042-C camera can operate in temperatures up to 167°F (75°C). The dust- and waterproof camera is IP66- and NEMA 4X-rated and meets MIL-STD-810G military standard, ensuring reliable operation in harsh weather conditions such as sandstorms.
In windy conditions, the camera’s electronic image stabilization provides clearer, more useful video and helps reduce the size of video files, which leads to lower bandwidth and storage use. Support for shock detection enables the camera to trigger an alarm if it has been hit.
This camera is designed for round-the-clock pan/tilt/zoom operation. It can be automatically directed to 256 preset positions using guard tour. The Q6042-C can tilt 20° above the horizon, making it possible for the camera to see higher than its mounting position.
The supplied media converter switch allows multiple cameras to be connected in a daisy chain to the network using standard network or fiber optic cables that help lower the cost of installing the cameras over long distances. The switch also enables the cameras to connect to external alarm devices via input/output ports and to 12V power.
With support for Active Gatekeeper, the camera can be automatically moved to a preset position when motion is detected in a pre-defined area to track the detected object. The camera also has substantial capacity for 3rd party intelligent video applications that are based on the AXIS Camera Application Platform.
