Axis Communications F41 overview

  • 1Description

Axis Communications' F41 Main Unit is designed to work with their F Series sensor units as a discreet surveillance solution such as at ATMs, controlled access points, or in fleet or emergency vehicles. The F41 main unit supports the Axis F1005-E, Axis 1015, Axis 1025, and Axis F1035-E sensor units that are available in two cable lengths: 10' or 39' for flexible installation.

Furthermore, the F41 is able to capture video in up to 1080p HD resolution at a frame rate of 60 fps with a single media stream, or at 30 fps with dual streams when using H.264 compression. Multiple imaging technologies provide enhanced image quality and clarity in all lighting conditions, especially in low light or with extremes of bright and dark in the same shot.

Multiple user-configured events trigger a variety of alarms to maximize security. A terminal block for external devices such as PIRs, door/window contacts, sirens and relays provides for additional layers of coverage, and allows the F41 to be integrated into alarm/fire panels to expand their capabilities and provide central station monitoring. When connected to the Internet, files can be saved to a remote NAS or monitoring computer. If not, files are saved to an on-board SD card, with cards up to 64GB supported.

The ONVIF-compliant VMS enables third-party applications and video analytics to be used for car/pedestrian counting, facial/license plate recognition, and tracking. Audio-in and -out terminals allow external microphones and speakers to be wired directly to the F41 for one- or two-way communication, integration into a PA system, for broadcasting audio files at predetermined times - such as a closing notification, or when an action rule has been tripped to alert intruders that authorities have been notified.
