Axis releases F Series modular miniature cameras

Axis Communications has newly introduced modular camera series --F Series-- that gives customers discreet surveillance solutions that provide high image detail, and allows great flexibility in choosing the units that are ideal for the installation.

Axis F Network Camera Series presents a highly flexible, modular network camera series that involves extremely discreet HDTV 1080p cameras with wide dynamic range. The new series is ideal for ATMs (automated teller machines), banks, stores, hotels, as well as rugged environments such as ambulances and police cars.

“Axis F Series enables great flexibility and discreetness with superb video performance, even in high-contrast lighting conditions,” says Erik Frannlid, Axis' Director of Product Management. “The series is based on a divided network camera concept, where the camera is split into a lens and image sensor unit, and a main unit. This concept was first introduced in the Axis P12 Series. When we developed the Axis F Series, we took into account the feedback we received from Axis P12 to provide customers with even better solutions.”

The divided network camera concept allows a small sensor unit to be installed discreetly in tight places and the bigger main unit to be placed elsewhere and away from public view. Axis F Series consists of units that are all sold separately. The series includes Axis F41 Main Unit and four compatible Axis F sensor units with different form factors and lens types for different field of views. Axis F41 Main Unit houses the processor, network, power, SD card slot and other connections, and can connect to one Axis F sensor unit. Each sensor unit, which consists of a lens and image sensor, comes with the choice of a 3-m or 12-m (10-ft. or 39-ft.) pre-mounted cable for connecting to the main unit.

“The small sensor units give users the flexibility to easily and discreetly install them, even in very tight spaces,” says Frannlid. “They can be flush-mounted in walls, ceilings, doorways, elevators and behind sheet metal with only the small lens surface visible—in the case of the pinhole unit, just a tiny hole for the lens. Certain Axis F sensor units can also withstand tough conditions such as vibrations, shocks and temperature fluctuations, which make them ideal for use inside and outside of emergency vehicles. The modular concept also gives customers the flexibility to purchase the sensor unit that is ideal for their application.”
