Product Description

MACE VARI-FOCAL DOME E* - Color Dome Camera with Vari-Focal Lens

The Mace CAM61 Color varifocal Dome Camera with Auto Iris Lens is a compact, cost-effective solution for most any remote monitoring needs. This dome camera contains state-of-the-art 3-Axis pan, tilt, and twist features including rotational twisting camera optics. Designed with picture-improving features, the Mace CAM61 has an extremely high resolution, making it well-suited to security surveillance of an area in your home or business.

This dome camera utilizes a 0.33-inch color Sony super-head CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor, with 297,000 effective pixels. Constructed with a 2.6 to six-millimeter varifocal auto-iris lens, the Mace CAM61 has an excellent resolution of 480 horizontal TVL (TV lines), and achieves a S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio of 45 dB or better. This unit is good in low-light with a minimum illumination of 0.7 Lux in color, and operates on the NTSC signal format. The CAM61 features a tri-axis lens mount and the ability to pan, tilt, or twist to cover almost any angle in a room. This unit uses a standard video output, runs on 12-volts of DC power, and can operate in temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius. The CAM61 comes complete with automatic white balance and backlight compensation, 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 45 dB
  • Sensitivity: 0.7 Lux in color
  • Horizontal resolution: 480 TVL
  • Operating temperatures: down to -10 degrees Celsius
  • Dimensions: approximately 12 cm in diameter
The Mace CAM61 camera is a reliable and high-quality addition to any surveillance system. This camera comes completely assembled and ready to go, and is easy to both install and set up. 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. About Dome Cameras
A dome camera is one of the most common indoor security camera styles. Mounted on the ceiling, and often designed to be tamper resistant, dome cameras are designed to be visually appealing and more secure than other types of security cameras. A true dome camera enables a continuous 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt operation, providing for extensive room coverage. One disadvantage of dome cameras is that they usually are not suitable for low-light conditions and must be used in well-lit areas.
