MDC3 Digital Smart Camera

The ideal answer to all lighting conditions

Customer references

Every day the MDC3 proves its reliability and robustness in challenging industries, such as construction machinery, agriculture or mining.

Find out in our case studies, what has convinced customers from the diverse sectors.

  • liebherr-mdc3-cameras-displays-in-avr-puma-qd Agriculture Every potato counts

    The Belgian agricultural machinery manufacturer AVR has also opted for the MDC3. Digital cameras are a convenient solution for the machine operators to permanently observe and monitor agricultural processes. Up to 16 digital smart cameras and two 12″ display controllers on the potato harvester skilfully show the harvesting process in detail. Get a taste of the countryside here.

  • Mining Bringing light into the darkness

    Due to the prevailing environmental conditions, digital cameras in the mining industry have to meet particularly high quality standards. See here how the MDC3 delivers a consistently good image despite strong vibrations and a dark working environment.

  • liebherr-mdc3-system7-reference-image Track construction Step by step towards automation

    Track construction machines manufacturer system7 has been relying on digital camera technology from Liebherr since 2016. Up to 24 MDC3 cameras are installed in system7's tamping machines, which have proven their high quality and robustness over the years. Discover here how Liebherr cameras meet the strict requirements of track construction.

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 Integrated Ethernet switch

    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.

  • IP-Multicast One stream — multiple monitors

    The Multicast function allows users to view an identical video stream on multiple monitors at once. The option is ideal for observing and monitoring workflows from multiple locations.

    In addition, the duplication of data packets via a distributor ensures a lower overall volume and thereby relieves the network infrastructure.

  • Camera-monitor system Fast delivery of images

    The MDC3 has a very low latency. In less than 75 milliseconds, it makes the captured image available on the interface. This enables the implementation of a camera-monitor system in accordance with ISO 16001, for example with the DC5 display controller. Learn more about Liebherr's camera-monitor systems here.
