The Bosch UPH-C498N-L86154 Camera/Lens Assembly consists of an LTC 0498 Dinion 2X Day/Night Camera and an LTC 3793/51 Zoom Lens, and is meant for a High-speed Positioning System. With a 1/3” wide dynamic range CCD sensor, the LTC 0498 provides clear images at a resolution up to 540TVL. The 20-bit digital signal processing increases sensitivity, and 2X Dynamic extends the dynamic range, making for sharp, detailed imagery with accuracy in color reproduction.
With 6 pre-programmed modes, the Day/Night Camera supports typical applications, and the modes can also be programmed for individual requirements. The Bilinx technology allows you to change the camera settings, check status, and update firmware from anywhere via the coaxial cable. The technology uses the standard video cable to transmit alarm and status messages, improving the overall performance of the camera and reducing the service/installation time.
The Auto Black switch caps the lens to exclude all light and automatically sets the camera’s circuitry to produce a standard black reference level. With the SmartBLC feature, the LTC 0498 Day/Night Camera adjusts video gain to correct the exposure when the object being captured is in front of a bright light source. The Privacy Masking feature with 4 separate programmable privacy zones can be used to block specific parts of a scene.
On motion detection, the camera displays an alarm in the video signal, closes the output relay or transmits an alarm message via Bilinx. With the global scene change detector, it reduces false alarms that can be caused by sudden changes in lighting condition - for instance, switching on or off the indoor or security lighting. The SensUp Dynamic feature improves the sensitivity by increasing the integration time up to 10 times on the CCD, providing clear images in lighting conditions as low as 0.2 lux.
By increasing the IR sensitivity, the Day/Night camera offers clear images even in low light conditions. The built-in IR filter automatically switches from color to monochrome either by sensing the illumination level or through the alarm input. With Default Shutter, the camera can capture high speed moving objects when sufficient light is available, and the shutter speed returns to default value under low light conditions to maintain sensitivity.
With the multi-language OSD (On-screen Display), power and alarm connections, and a built-in test pattern generator, the camera is easy to install. The Day/Night Camera features a LensWizard, which detects lens type automatically and helps maintain accurate lens focus. It is suitable for applications such as tunnels, parking facilities, prisons, ports, military facilities, casinos, and gambling centers.
The LTC 3793/51 is a C-mount type lens having a focal length range of 8.6–154 mm and an iris control range of F2.5-360. It provides an 18x zoom and is IR corrected for easy switching between color and B&W as per changes in ambient lighting. The lens supports 1/2” image format and enables the camera to deliver crisp picture quality.
