Product Description

B/W Weatherproof High Resolution Day/Night Camera

The SPECO CVC-980IR B/W Weatherproof High Resolution Night Vision Camera is great for any application in which extremely low-light conditions may at times prevail. Constructed of durable aluminum, this camera comes with an adjustable sunshield that helps eliminate glare, and automatically switches from color to B/W (black-and-white) for nighttime viewing. Designed to provide a very high-resolution picture even in low-light and no-light conditions, the SPECO CVC-980IR is a great addition to any video surveillance system, especially in round-the-clock applications subject to inclement weather conditions.

This day-and-night bullet camera utilizes a 0.33-inch color Sony Exview HAD CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor with a 12-millimeter DC auto-iris lens, and provides 768 by 492 effective pixels. The CVC-980IR has an extraordinarily high resolution of 570 horizontal TVL (TV lines), and achieves a S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio of 48 dB or better. Already extremely sensitive to light with a minimum illumination of 0.001 Lux to infinity, this camera has eight built-in super-range IR (InfraRed) LEDs (light emitting diodes) that allow it to receive a picture in total darkness (0 Lux) up to 150-feet. Additionally, the CVC-980IR has a built-in CDS sensor that turns the IR illuminators on automatically when it gets dark. The SPECO CVC-980IR runs on a regulated 12-volts DC power supply, and can operate in temperatures ranging from -20 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. The CVC-980IR comes complete with a built-in automatic electronic shutter with speeds ranging from 1/60 to 1/100,000 of a second.

Technical Features:

  • S/N ratio: better than 48 dB
  • Minimum illumination: 0.001 Lux in color to infinity; 0 Lux in B/W via IR LEDs to 150-feet
  • Effective pixels: 768 by 492 pixels
  • Horizontal resolution: 570 TVL
  • Operating temperatures: -20 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Dimensions: 5.8 x 10.6 x 5 inches (W x D x H)
The SPECO CVC-980IR camera provides you with a high-quality color picture from a camera that can go virtually anywhere, and deserves serious consideration as an addition to any severe-weather security system. The CVC-980IR comes completely assembled and ready to use, and includes cable routing through the mount as an added protection against vandalism. Users should note that the CCD sensor may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the camera should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three Lux would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the Lux level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.
