Outdoor-ready video surveillance
The IP66-and NEMA 4X-rated AXIS Q1604-E offers aluminum and robust casing, sunshield to simplify installation time and costs. It is protected from dust, rain, snow and sun, and can operate in temperatures from -40 °C to 50°C (-40 °F to 122 °F) using High PoE (30 W). The camera does not only function at -40 °C (-40 °F), but it can also power up at that temperature following a power failure. This feature is known as Axis’ Arctic Temperature Control. To guarantee heating, multiple heaters are placed in direct contact with the camera and the window.
AXIS Q1604-E offers a dual shell technology, where an internal shell stores heat in cold environments. A fan ventilates the air in hot environments, where the heat is transferred to the outer aluminum chassis for efficient cooling.
Ease of installation
One-cable installation thanks to support for PoE. A sunshield and a wall bracket are included to facilitate the installation. For higher flexibility, three cable gaskets holes are available for an Ethernet cable, a power cable and for an external device connected via the camera’s I/O ports. In addition, the cables are vandal protected and the front window is replaceable. The camera’s focus assistant indicates when the image is in focus by the flashing front LED of the camera. Having performed rough focusing at the lens, the remote back focus capability of the AXIS Q1604-E is conveniently used for fine tuning focus.
Dynamic capture capabilities
The camera’s Wide Dynamic Range with dynamic capture uses several images with different exposure times. The advanced image processing results in video with exceptional clarity and sharpness.
AXIS Q1604-E can handle complex environments such as when light comes through a tunnel creating both shadow and bright zones. No part of the image turns out too dark or too bright.
