Hydra™ Ruggedised PTZ CCTV Camera Webmaster
Advanced PTZ Platform Designed for Harsh Environments
Designed from the outset to support operation in harsh environments, the Hydra™ Ruggedised PTZ uses technology new to and uniquely developed for the CCTV industry. Hydra achieves outstanding and ultra-reliable performance in an immensely rugged housing manufactured from die-cast aluminium. Each axis is driven directly without intermediate belts or gears by Overview’s unique intelligent Brushless DC (iBLDC ) digital servo drives to give a previously unattainable level of positional accuracy, repeatability, wide dynamic range and smoothness – this results in military performance at commercial cost, with very long life and low cost of ownership.
Hydra is a highly flexible platform accommodating a very wide range of analogue, HD and IP cameras with up to 40x zoom, or a wide range of Overview thermal cameras. The integral adaptive illuminator covers at least 150m, and rotation is continuous in both pan and tilt.
Two variants are available; the single camera Uno and the Duo, which offers a two camera system typically combining a visual camera with a thermal imaging core. A marine version is available for very harsh environments, e.g. saline applications.
