The smart algorithm ensures rapid readjustment for light-dark transitions without flutter. The integrated high-performance imager also ensures good visibility in very dark environments with an illuminance level of 1 millilux - all in HD quality with a resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels.
Thanks to its adaptability in constantly changing light conditions, the camera is the ideal solution for mobile applications.
Thanks to its High Dynamic Range (HDR) the MDC3 can take several pictures simultaneously at different brightness levels and combine them into the ideal image. The camera can then deliver up to 40 perfectly-presented high-contrast images per second.
What is more, the MDC3 has a high contrast range of 132 dB, offering you lots of important image details on the monitor, for greater efficiency and work safety.
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.
This function eliminates the fish-eye effect, offering the driver far easier image interpretation, for greater comfort and work safety.
The integrated zoom makes it possible to focus on a specific zone, for example, a work process. The zoom is individually adjustable.
The light indicator signals the camera's activity status. This allows the driver to see at a glance if the camera is currently sending a live stream. This ensures high work safety.
Get the picture sent to the display as you want it. The adjustment possibilities include: mirroring, flipping, brightness and contrast.
You can add the MDC3 Smart Camera to your network either with a static IP address or dynamically via DHCP.
Comprehensive sensor functions: The smart camera recognises movements in the field of view and can determine movement vectors. Based on this optical flow, it is possible to predict the direction in which objects are moving and their speed. The digital camera also delivers edge images.
Thanks to its sensor functions the MDC3 is ideally equipped to serve as a reliable image sensor in environment recognition systems. It can in this way contribute to increasing the operational safety of mobile work machinery.
Serious damage can be caused to a crane by incorrect winding of a rope. The MDC3 can provide an optimum view of the winch in real time. Through monitoring of the winch, costly damage to the rope can be avoided and downtimes reduced.
If there are obstacles in the work environment, this can lead to workplace accidents if not spotted in good time. The MDC3 supplies additional information through edge image and optical flow technology. The reliable detection of the edges and movement vectors of an object are important components in the implementation of environment recognition. This enhances work safety and efficiency.
When the driver moves a machine backwards or sideways, a reliable depiction of the work environment is all the more important. Thanks to the horizontal and vertical mirror function, the camera can be deployed in practically any position. This means that the driver can operate the machine safely and comfortably.
The smart camera is perfectly suited to the monitoring of critical areas. Thanks to the digital image acquisition, an image logger can be easily implemented. The comprehensive sensor functions of the MDC3 open up many more additional application possibilities.
