 Owl PTZ II™ – 1080p 30 fps HD-SDI PTZ Camera, 20x Zoom and IR
2.2 Megapixel, 1080p, 30 fps, 1/3 Inch Outdoor Infrared PTX (Pan Tilt Zoom) CMOS HD Camera with HD-SDI and Analog CVBS Output. Features 20x Zoom and Twin Motorized IR Zoom Lens. True D&N IRC. Shock Resistant, Weather Resistant, IP67 Certified.

The Owl PTZ II features an optically correct and distortion free toughened glass viewing window to provide brighter, clearer images, even at full telephoto zoom ratio.  Its motorized IR zoom lens offers a rich viewing experience even in total darkness, though smoke, light fog, and in the most adverse weather conditions.

The Owl PTZ II meets the IP67 Ingress Protection standard – which means it is totally protected against dust, and that is submersible and protected against temporary immersion for up to one meter for 30 minutes.  It is well protected with internal aluminum die-casting for shock-resistance.  The corrosion-resistant external ABS camera housing is factory-sealed and never has to be opened.  The power supply and all terminals for video, telemetry data, alarm and network interface are reliably protected in the weatherproof and tamperproof housing. 

The camera’s precise pan/tilt mechanism gives operators accurate pointing control while providing fully programmable scan patterns and slew-to-alarm functionality.  It delivers variable pan/tilt speeds from only 0.1° per second up to 90° per second.  The Owl PTZ II is capable of pan speeds of 250° per second between presets.
An extend cable with an included one meter HD-SDI coaxial cable, telemetry data and alarm cable, and power cable, simply links to the installation base unit and the base board.  This advanced PTZ mechanism docking structure is also extremely installation-friendly.
