The fully weatherproof IP camera has two miniature sensor modules, which are each connected to the camera housing with a two-meter cable. Thanks to the hemispheric dual lens, two separate rooms can be secured simultaneously without any blind spots.The camera, which is available in both mono (S14M) and dual (S14D) versions, offers a wide range of application opportunities. For instance, the S14D can be equipped with two hemispheric lens units with integrated microphone that connect to the main housing via cables. This makes it possible to fully secure two rooms located next to, or on top of, one another with just one single S14D unit. The slim design of the module units, which are available in white and black, permit an extremely discreet installation.Both module units and the separate housing with the latest dual camera board are weatherproof in accordance with IP65 and operate in a temperature range of -30°C to +60°C.  The flat housing, including flash memory with up to 64 GB and all external connectors (Ethernet, MiniUSB, MxBus), can be installed discreetly and with optimal protection behind a wall or ceiling panel so that only the lens units in their ultra-compact protective housing are visible. Power is supplied very cost effective via a network cable (PoE). At less than five watt-hours, the energy consumption is extremely low.The camera's technical features and very discreet mounting open up a whole range of application opportunities. In L-shaped rooms, for example, the two sensor modules can be positioned at the corner in correct angles to each other, therefore capturing the entire room without any blind spots. Therefore, the S14 is particularly well-suited for use in hotels, banks and retail stores where the highest levels of security and discretion are required. The S14 can also demonstrate its strengths at security gates and in offices. MOBOTIX also offers the appropriate installation accessories for mounting the sensor module on thicker walls. Using several extension pieces (each approx. 40 mm), longer "tunnel holes" through a wall can also be bridged.For more information, contact Madison Technologies networking team on 1800 72 79 79 or at PI Certified Plug-and-Play PROFINET Enabled Ethernet Switches 2013-01-17T06:23:42Z pi-certified-plug-and-play-profinet-enabled-ethernet-switches Moxa’s EDS-405A and EDS-408A from Madison Technologies are 5 and 8-port managed Ethernet switches with PROFINET enabled.
