Axis extends modular F camera series

Lund, Sweden

Axis F Series offers 3 new sensor units for discreet surveillance

The modular Axis F Network Camera Series, which is based on a divided network camera concept, now offers three additional sensor units for use with its two main units.

The small sensor units, which comprise a lens, image sensor and cable for connection to a main unit, can be installed discreetly in tight places and are sold separately from the main units. The main units house the processor, network, power, SD card slot and other connections and can be installed away from public view. This setup not only offers customers a highly discreet video surveillance solution, but also the flexibility to choose the units that best fit the particular demands of an installation.

“Flexibility is a key feature of Axis F Series and the three new sensor units fulfill this by giving customers the choice of not only different lens types, but also form factors and price points,” says Erik Frännlid, Axis’ Director of Product Management. “Customers can now choose between standard, varifocal, pinhole and fisheye sensor units, recessed domes with Axis F4005 and Axis F4005-E, and the low-priced alternative, Axis F1004.”

The Axis F1004 sensor unit will be available towards the end of June and is designed to offer highly discreet indoor video surveillance solution at a low price point.  It is ideal for monitoring multiple, closely situated areas when four Axis F1004 sensor units are connected to one Axis F44 main unit.  It is suitable for use in retail and banking environments and offers a 102º horizontal field of view and HDTV 720p resolution.  This sensor unit also has a pigtail with a micro-USB connector for a detachable 8-m (26-ft.) cable to connect to a main unit.  A flush mount kit is included for installing in walls or ceilings and optional mounts enable the Axis F1004 to be Axis’ smallest fixed and recessed dome unit, measuring 7 cm (3 in.) in diameter.

The indoor Axis F4005 and rugged outdoor Axis F4005-E dome sensor units on the other hand offer an out-of-the-box recessed dome sensor solution for quick and easy installation in ceilings and walls. The outdoor Axis F4005-E is IP66-, NEMA 4X- and IK09-rated to withstand dust, rain, snow, vibration, shock, impact and temperature fluctuations.  These sensors are ideal for video surveillance applications in retail, office and banking environments, as well as inside vehicles such as buses.  They offer a 113º horizontal field of view and HDTV 1080p resolution plus they come with a 12-m (39-ft.) cable for connection to a main unit.  According to Axis, the Axis F4005 and Axis F4005-E will be available in July.
