MDC3 Digital Smart Camera

The ideal answer to all lighting conditions

Smart features relieve your control system

The smart camera can be configured to process the image in the camera itself. The image is then sent as desired to the display unit without any additional computing power required. Discover the smart features of the MDC3.

Image configuration

Get the picture sent to the display as you want it. The adjustment possibilities include: mirroring, flipping, brightness and contrast.

Easy address administration

You can add the MDC3 Smart Camera to your network either with a static IP address or dynamically via DHCP.

  • Several cameras in series

    Second Ethernet connection thanks to the integrated switch: Link up as many cameras as you like in series (daisy chain) via just one connection to the machine's control system. This saves on any cost-intensive additional switch and streamlines the wiring.

  • Powerful under extreme conditions

    In third-generation: Thanks to the IP6K9K rating and its carbon-fibre-reinforced housing the MDC3 Smart Camera takes even the harshest operating conditions in stride.

    The MDC3 is fitted with an anti-icing and anti-misting function. This means that the camera delivers clear pictures even in extreme temperatures - very shortly after machine start-up.

  • Camera monitoring system / Mobile electronics

    Very short latency: It takes less than 75 milliseconds for the MDC3 to send the captured image to the interface. This enables the implementation of a secure camera monitoring system as per ISO 16001, for example in conjunction with the Display Controller DC5 from Liebherr.
