The Pelco C10DN-6X Day/Night Camera has a 1/3" CCD color image sensor and offers a high resolution of 540TVL. The camera uses a removable IR cut filter to switch between color and black & white as per the ambient changes in lighting. With a minimum illumination of 0.3 lux (color mode) and 0.07 lux (black & white mode), the camera is suited for low-level night time surveillance. The compact camera has a standard CS lens mount, and can be used with fixed, manual, or auto iris (DC or video drive) lenses and the auto iris lens is controlled via a standard 4-pin square connector.
Area masking, titling, pixel correction, and preset lighting profiles can be selected through the on-screen menu, using the side joystick. You can define up to 8 areas for masking to block certain areas of the image. Automatic gain control adjusts the signal strength to maintain a constant brightness level. Backlight compensation adjusts video gain to correct the exposure when the object being captured is in front of a bright light source. Auto white balance takes a standard white color reference to adjust the RGB (red, green, and blue) colors to produce good quality images in a wide range of lighting conditions.
The C10DN-6X camera features ESC (Electronic Shutter Control) that adjusts the shutter speed to compensate for excessive light level and flicker-less mode reduces the flicker caused by different light conditions. It also includes an Eclipser feature that adjusts a foreground image to compensate for a very bright background and autosensing power (24VAC with internal line lock or 12VDC with internal synchronization).
The line synchronization locks each camera to the same frame rate and also eliminates vertical rolls that occur when multiple cameras are connected to the same switching device. The C10DN-6X camera is suitable for use with DF5, DF8A, EH100, EH3508, and EH2508 enclosures. The optional C10-UM wall / ceiling / rail mount kit can be used to mount the camera in non-enclosure applications.
