Pelco PEL-TLR3040 Video Cassette Recorder 40-Hour/24-Hour Real-Time High Density Time-Lapse


Our Price : $493.12

Product Code: PEL-TLR3040


The TLR3040 can record for 6, 18, or 30 hours on a T-120 tape cassette or 8, 24, or 40 hours on a T-160 tape. Playback in 2H mode is 2 hours on a T-120 tape and 2 hours and 40 minutes on a T-160 tape. In addition, the TLR3040 can be programmed to record speci?c time periods on a daily or weekly schedule. It can also be set up to record only upon activation by an external alarm. Recording time can be extended signi?cantly by combining these features with the time-lapse capability. Twenty ?elds/ second "real-time" recording is available in L24H mode with T160 tape.

The TLR3040 can also be programmed for repeat recording. This means when the end of the tape is reached, the unit automatically rewinds and begins recording again. However, if an alarm is received during recording, the unit stops at the end of the tape. The TLR3040 also has an end-of-tape output that can activate another recorder. This feature allows multiple TLR3040s to be connected to increase the system's recording time.

Special playback features include speed search and reverse playback. With the front panel jog/shuttle controls, users can quickly search the recording in either direction, then easily switch to forward/reverse, ?eld-by-?eld movement for detailed study. Users can also search to the minute for a speci?c date and time.

The TLR3040 can be easily set up using programming menus displayed on the video monitor. The menus can be accessed at the press of a button.

Complete or partial lock modes block all or some front panel functions, preventing changes to the unit's settings. A tape use counter displays how many times the same tape has been reused in repeat recording mode (useful in monitoring tape replacement). Another useful maintenance feature in scheduling preventative maintenance and head replacement is the elapsed time of recording and playback.
