Energy-efficient PTZ and fixed dome cameras

Runcorn, UK

The latest addition to Honeywell's line of pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras is the ACUIX ES. Operating on less than 15 watts of power, the ACUIX ES is an energy efficient model that offers ease of installation and operation.


"To make sure the ACUIX ES offers the maximum benefit for the greatest number of installations, we incorporated the features our customers told us they consider as the most critical," said Chris Koetsier, global director of product marketing for video systems at Honeywell. "In addition, this camera provides a green solution for users who are sensitive to today's critical environmental issues and committed to consuming less energy."

A mere 20.32 centimetres, the ACUIX ES has a reduced footprint that fits into most surveillance environments. ACUIX ES simplifies installation by reducing the number of parts installers must order. It includes an in-ceiling housing and a surface-mount configuration; installers can further reduce the profile by using an integral recessed mount. The surface-mount version also can be converted to a pendant mount by using an additional pendant top cap which comes supplied.

The camera also streamlines operations through Honeywell's IntelliBus technology, which allows users to remotely upload firmware to all domes and securely store all camera settings such as labels, presets, tours and privacy zones. The ACUIX ES is also equipped with many software features that increase performance and make installation and operation easy:

- Password protection prevents unauthorised users from changing system settings.
- Coax video and two contact inputs are standard features.
- Multi-language menus are provided for English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Polish, and Spanish.

Perfect for indoor applications, the ACUIX ES line includes an 18X auto-focus PTZ dome with 460 TVL and a fixed camera option utilising a 530 TVL camera with a 2.8-10 mm Vari-focal Auto Iris lens.

The ACUIX ES also offers system flexibility and does not require owners to invest in new equipment. It is fully compatible with all Honeywell digital video recorders, encoders and matrix switchers and is backward compatible with all existing Honeywell PTZ domes, in addition to many offered by third-party manufacturers.
