The C20-DW Series is PelcoÃ‚™s full-featured digital day/night wide dynamic range (WDR) CCD camera. Its WDR technology provides 120 dB dynamic range and produces superior images over a range of lighting conditions, including extreme backlight conditions. Its day/night technology provides outstanding performance in low lighting conditions. The camera uses a removable infrared (IR) cut filter to switch between color and black-white (B-W) modes as environmental lighting conditions change and as the need for infrared sensitivity is realized.
The C20-DW Series is an ultra high resolution digital camera with 650 TVL of resolution and 0.13 lux minimum illumination. Camera features include autosensing power (24 VAC or 12 VDC with AC line lock or internal synchronization) and automatic gain control (AGC). The C20-DW Series includes automatic white balance (AWB) for difficult lighting situations, digital noise reduction, and backlight compensation (BLC) that adjusts the picture to prevent objects from appearing dark due to a strong backlight. The C20-DW Series also uses slow electronic shutter technology to improve the illumination performance for low-light environments.
The C20-DW Series has built-in analytical capabilities including privacy zones, motion detection, and camera titles that add to its functionality. These fine-tuning features are easily set using the on-screen menus.
The C20-DW Series is quick and easy to install. The camera is also featured in PelcoÃ‚™s DomePak and ImagePak fixed camera dome/enclosure packages. The optional C10-UM wall/ceiling/rail mount kit offers easy installation in many nonenclosure applications, for all models.
The C20-DW Series has a standard CS lens mount and can be used with fixed, manual, or auto iris (DC drive) lenses. The iris is controlled through a standard 4-pin square connector that is included on all Pelco auto iris lenses.
On-screen configurable menus can be accessed locally using the rear panel button or remotely using any Pelco controller with Pelco D or Coaxitron protocol. Use these menus to select a specific profile, to customize and save camera settings for the specific application, and trigger alarm out functions.
The C20-DW Series is equipped with configurable alarm in and alarm out functions for external devices such as IR lighting control, wiper operation, and local alerting upon alarm of an external device.
The C20-DW Series from Pelco is ideal for critical security applications requiring the best analog images in all types of lighting and system configurations.
