Product Description


The Mace CAM38C Super High Sensitive Day/Night Color Camera is a highly sensitive, professional-grade solution for most any remote monitoring needs. Designed to be used indoors, the Mace CAM38C has a highly sensitive image sensor, making it an ideal solution for security surveillance, or any other situation requiring 24-hour monitoring.

This camera utilizes a 0.33-inch color CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor, with 510-by-492 effective pixels via the NTSC signal system. The Mace CAM38C has a good resolution of 350 horizontal TVL (TV lines), and achieves a S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio of 48 dB or better. This unit is extremely good in low-light, with a minimum illumination of 0.3 Lux in color. This unit uses a standard composite video output, and can operate in temperatures ranging from -10 to 45 degrees Celsius. The CAM38C comes complete with features such as AGC (automatic gain control), an auto-iris amplifier, and a built-in automatic electronic shutter with speeds ranging from 1/50 to 1/100,000 of a second.

Technical Features:

  • S/N ratio: better than 48 dB
  • Sensitivity: 0.3 Lux in color
  • Effective pixels: 510 by 492 pixels
  • Horizontal resolution: 350 TVL
  • Operating temperatures: -10 and 45 degrees Celsius
  • Dimensions: approximately 6 x 11 x 5 centimeters (W x D x H)
The Mace CAM38C camera is a reliable and high-quality addition to any surveillance system. This camera uses the standard CS/C mount for interchangeable lenses. 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.
