Easy Installation Features On New Conway Fixed Dome

Conway Security Products : 16 September, 2010  (New Product)
High resolution dome camera from Conway provides installers with improved set-up time when selecting camera views
Easy Installation Features On New Conway Fixed Dome
UK CCTV manufacturer Conway Security Products has released an addition to its range of fixed domes, the CD-VR165. The latest model has a high-resolution Sony HQ1 camera delivering crisp colour images with resolution of up to 540tvlTVL.

The camera has a vari-focal lens with a focal length of 2.8~10mm; this offers the installer a comprehensive range of views from 94° through to 29°.

The camera is housed in a robust machined copolymer enclosure with a clear- cast polycarbonate sphere. The material proves stable in challenging environmental conditions where aluminium would not be suitable, and is also highly robust making it resilient to physical attack.

What makes the CD-VR165 stand out from other models available on the market is the way that Conway designers have mounted the camera within the dome housing. The camera is enclosed in its own solid ball of machined plastic, a unique design that produces many benefits for both installer and end-user.

When developing the CD-165, Conway researched existing solutions on the market as well as seeking detailed feedback from their customer base as to what they liked and disliked about domes they had already used.

One of the biggest complaints from installers was that cameras were invariably held in cradles that necessitated loosening different screws while setting camera views. This is awkward at the best of times but if you are working at height and dropping screws the job becomes time-consuming and ultimately expensive. The camera in the CD-VR165 is held in place using precision friction springs which allow adjustment by hand without any tools to loosen and tighten screws.

The other key complaint from installers concerned the angle of view that domes could achieve when mounted on average height ceilings. The CD-VR165 mounts the camera lower down in the clear polycarbonate sphere, allowing it to see further along corridors without the camera seeing the inside of the housing. This is a surprisingly obvious feature but one that will be welcomed by the installer community.

The CD-VR165 comes in two formats, surface and recess mounting, and has options including audio and a low power heater for more demanding environments.
