Redvision’s fast, accurate and silent new VOLANT™ series, rugged PTZ.
Redvision’s revolutionary new VOLANT™ series camera is claimed to be the fastest, quietest and most accurate PTZ in the CCTV industry.
In this article, Paul Hucker, Director of the UK-based CCTV manufacturer, explains some of the technological developments Redvision has made in the VOLANT to support this impressive claim.
The Redvision brand is synonymous with tough, hazardous or corrosive, outdoor surveillance applications. The company’s X-SERIES rugged PTZ dome cameras lead the market in Local Authority, industrial and public space CCTV applications. It has unique heritage in CCTV manufacturing, and one which Redvision drew upon whilst developing the VOLANT.
The VOLANT has a durable, die-cast aluminium body, like the X-SERIES, which is tough and offers cooling benefits in hot climates. The camera is off-set, but balanced with the PTZ mechanism, to allow viewing vertically downwards when mounted on a pole or column. Many rugged PTZs use a cantilever mechanism to achieve vertical viewing, but Redvision realised this throws the camera off-balance, slowing movement and increasing wear and tear.
The VOLANT is IP68 weather-proof rated. It surpasses all of Redvision’s own in-house, shock and impact testing criteria, designed to replicate conditions in the most demanding surveillance applications. The VOLANT far exceeds the demands of the commonly quoted IK10 shock and impact-resistance rating as well as IEC vibration, and salt spray compliance requirements.
