Redvision has launched the Redvision VEGA™ 2010, rugged camera housing for tough, hazardous or corrosive, outdoor surveillance applications. The VEGA™ 2010 will house fixed camera and lens combinations, up to 290mm in length, offering protection from dirt, moisture and dust ingress. It is cable-managed, with a built-in junction box, making it simple to install and vandal-resistant. It is also symmetrical, so it can be pendent or pedestal mounted, to ceilings, walls and soffits.

Paul Hucker, director at Redvision, explains, “The VEGA™ 2010 housing is like a fixed camera version of our well-established, VOLANT and X-SERIES rugged, PTZ cameras. It includes identical features, like an optically-correct, toughened glass, camera window; a wiper to remove dirt and moisture; and rugged, die-cast aluminum construction. It will be closely followed by the VEGA 2050 range, where 2MP, 4MP and thermal cameras options will be built in.

The Redvision VEGA™ camera window has an optional Tru-park, silicon wiper to remove dirt and water which, when not in use, is concealed behind the housing’s front bezel.

The VEGA™ includes a CHAT™ interface board for power, audio, washer and wiper control, using the universal, Pelco telemetry protocol. If telemetry is not available, wiper and washer activation intervals can be automated using dip-switches on the CHAT™ board.

The VEGA™ is finished with a marine-grade plating, followed by a tough powder-coating. It is available in a light grey (RAL 7035), as standard, but can be ordered in any other RAL colour, if required. The housing is both IP67 weather-proof rated and IK10 shock and vandal-resistance rated, making it amongst the toughest, fixed housings in the security industry.
