SurveyorVFT can be programmed and operated using any V1300X/V1400X/1500 series of NOVA™ communication devices and enhanced VicoaxII protocol.
It is available in a variety of indoor and outdoor versions and can be configured with a variety of camera and lower dome types. The basic SurveyorVFT provides video transmission over coaxial cable. Options are available that provide TCP/IP (ViconNet), fiber-optic and twisted-pair (UTP) video transmission.
Each of these options includes an interface board that allows the specific type of video transmission. An appropriate receiver is required. The ViconNet (version 3) option provides support for network connection to Kollector Elite Digital Video Recorders and ViconNet Workstations via ViconNet software.
A pre-installed LAN interface board allows direct plug-in to a system network switch. Video from the camera is available to all network recorders and workstations for live view and recording. The Vicon SurveyorVFT camera dome can be used in conjunction with competitive PTZ drivers through DIP-switch selection.
The SurveyorVFT is designed for easy snap-in installation. The drive simply snaps into the housing. When removed, the housing retains all programmed functions in its on-board memory. The customer interface board snaps down for easy access and the PCB provides removable terminal blocks for simple wiring connections.
The SurveyorVFT has one of the lowest current draws compared to other domes in its class. There are four camera types available, each with NTSC and PAL versions. The basic model is a 22X high-resolution camera/lens. Another 22X model is available with ExView CCD technology (22XEX).
The third version is a 23X day/night camera/lens and the fourth is a 35X day/night camera/lens. The day/night models feature wide dynamic range (WDR). Several mounting accessories are available to fit almost any installation need.
There are 79 programmable preset positions, each having a variable preset solve accuracy of 0.1º. Programmable azimuth and compass is displayed on screen. There are 8 compass headings (N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW) (22XEX/23X/35X only) and pan and tilt degrees displayed with a 1º resolution. 16 individual programmable privacy masks are available.
Motion detection capability is available on day/night models. For each preset, there are 6 programmable zones for motion detection, each having 3 sensitivity levels. Alarm inputs can be individually programmed.
Programmable titling is provided for the camera and every preset position, alarm, relay and sector and titles can be enabled or disabled individually or globally. Eight tours (4 on 22X) are available with 32 steps per tour. Pan and tilt functions are externally controlled, continuously variable and programmable to be enabled or disabled.
There is a programmable autopan function. Vicon strongly recommends the use of uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS) to prevent voltage fluctuations that can affect operation, cause video loss and damage to the equipment.
