Redvision launches the fast, quiet and accurate VOLANT™ rugged PTZ camera.

08 June 2017

Redvision will formally launch the VOLANT™ rugged PTZ camera at IFSEC 2017, stand D1150.

The VOLANT™ is the fastest, quietest and most accurate PTZ camera in the industry and will be exhibited alongside the new VEGA™ rugged camera enclosure. Redvision will also be showcasing the company’s well-established, X-SERIES™ rugged PTZ dome cameras.

Redvision’s VOLANT™ incorporates many of the design features of its successful X-SERIES™. It has a durable, die-cast aluminium body for rugged, outdoor operation; a flat, optically-correct, toughened glass camera window with wiper to remove dirt and water; and a camera design allowing viewing vertically downwards when mounted on a pole or column. It is IP68 weather-proof rated; IK10 shock and vandal resistance rated; and passes IEC vibration, shock and salt spray compliance requirements.

The VOLANT™ uses Infinity™ direct drive, brushless DC motors for fast, accurate and silent operation and highly flexible, continuous rotation in both its pan and tilt axis. It will silently pan at 420°/second to a pre-set, or move extremely slowly to track a target or person at 300m. The Infinity™ motors deliver minimal latency and military-level, positional accuracy, repeatable to 0.01°. If the VOLANT™ is knocked or moved out of position, its positional intelligence will recover it to its correct position.

The VOLANT™ includes integrated, Dual-Adaptive™ IR and white light LED illuminators, set in a ring surrounding the camera window. These provide optimal lighting in any field of view and are effective up to 150m in complete darkness.

IP and analogue models of the VOLANT™ cameras are available, including ONVIF compliant, Full HD, IP with 30x optical zoom and SD analogue with 20x or 30x optical zoom.
