SKU: PC2CD12V504 MFR: D2CD12V50-4

About Panasonic AW-HE50H

The Panasonic AW-HE50H Outdoor PTZ Camera System with Cooldome Active Air Conditioning Enclosure is a full outdoor camera system, complete with a custom Dotworkz D2 enclosure, that's ready to be controlled via RS-422 serial control or via an IP network. The HE50H's integrated pan/tilt/zoom mechanism can be operated remotely by Panasonic AW series controllers, computers, or control systems from third-party manufacturers, all via IP control. A full 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensor and 18x optical zoom lens deliver HD or SD imagery in a variety of resolutions, achieving exceptionally natural results due to Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS), Hybrid Noise Reduction and the Flesh Tone function. If desired, the video can be monitored locally via the camera's HDMI, composite, or component outputs.

Fast, precise and accurate, the AW-HE50H offers a variety of other powerful features, such as electronic shutter, 7-step chroma level adjustment, 3-step gamma correction and tally light. The camera pans across a ±175 degree range and tilts from +90 to -30 degrees. With its Dotworkz COOLDOME Active Air Conditioning enclosure, the HE50H camera enjoys armor against the elements.

The camera housing will not corrode, rust, or leak. The custom Dotworkz D2 enclosure is a Cooldome (CD-12 V DC) unit with active air conditioning enabled by a 12 V DC power supply. The enclosure offers excellent protection against the hazards of outdoor camera use: environmental mayhem and vandalism.

The active air conditioning makes the enclosure suited to climate zones with a wide range of temperatures: it's recommended for use from 30 degrees F all the way to a blistering 145 degrees F (-1 to 63 degrees C), which it knocks down a very significant 45 degrees F (25 degrees C) so the camera can operate at an appropriate temperature.

The system includes a breakout cable that conveys HD/SD component & composite video as well as RS-422 commands. It features a 20-pin connector at one end and 3x BNC plus 2x RJ-45 connectors at the other end. The camera can be controlled via RS-422 serial control or, with its Ethernet input, over an IP network - to receive the commands that make this pan/tilt/zoom camera what it is. Power supplies and a second RS-422-only breakout cable are also included.

Panasonic AW-HE50H Features

  • The camera's gamma curve and knee slope are optimized to match the contrast of each pixel in real time. This increases the dynamic range without affecting the normal pixels
  • The innovative Hybrid (2D/3D) Noise Reduction function also suppresses after-images, even in difficult lighting conditions
  • Flesh Tone Mode produces a more pleasing and realistic picture
  • Full-HD 1/3" CMOS sensor with 18x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom
  • Camera menus can be set up via a web browser by connecting the AW-HE50H to a PC
  • Quick camera integration, thanks to simple connections, IP control and the included Turn-lock mount
  • Enclosure is IP66-rated: airtight and sealed against outside air, dust, water and saltwater. In addition, the D2 housing features IP68-rated waterproof connection ports
  • All system components are mounted and wired in the enclosure, except for the HE50H camera, which should be installed onsite
