The car plates recognition is one of the most frequent requests in the world of video surveillance, however it is not an easy task for the cameras and requires specific technologies. Designed for car plate capturing, these ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) AHD cameras provide 100% readable characters in all conditions . They are excellent cameras for road monitoring, but you can also use them on an access road to a company or a service station, adding a very important value to the system. You can use these ANPR cameras with ordinary AHD DVRs . These cameras are for analog AHD systems, if you are looking for digital cameras, please find here our IP ANPR cameras.
See below some image captures from a real installation.
These cameras come with an anti-glare system that allows you to monitor license plates even at night , when normal cameras are blinded by vehicle headlights. For this reason, in night mode, these cameras provide a very dark image that makes the license plate stand out, illuminated in the dark by the LEDs of the camera. Watch here a demo clip which have been recorded with these ANPR cameras and an ordinary NVR.
These cameras do not use automatic shutter, like normal cameras, but fixed shutter. With our configuration software you can set the shutter speed according to the speed of the vehicles . With extra fast shutter speed you can capture car plates up to 200 km/h. If you expect the vehicles not to move so fast, you should set a slower shutter speed, so that the general image will be brighter at night. .
With low light, or at night, these cameras shoot the license plates thanks to their infrared illuminator which emits an invisible light that does not bother the drivers. The maximum capturing distance is 30 meters. The power of the LEDs can be adjusted from the NVR or by means of the on-board pushbutton. The cameras in this range are equipped with high-performance IR LEDs that provide brigth illumination while maintaining relatively low power consumption. The LEDs turn on automatically below 10 lux. In night mode the camera shoots in Black White thanks to a mechanical removal of the IR filter (ICR).
When reading license plates, perfect lens adjustment is essential. For this reason, these cameras are equipped with a 5-50 mm. manual zoom lens that you can adjust according to the target distance. Rememeber that a license plate camera must be focused to the road, so it is not meant for ordinary surveillance. You can adjust the zoom lens to monitor up to 3 lanes.
These cameras are mounted on the roadside using the wall bracket included. You can use them to monitor both the front or rear license plates with an optimal reading distance between 5 and 30 meters . When choosing the best position for your camera, consider that the optimal angle with respect to the vehicles direction is around 30°. Such an angle is recommended to reduce the night glare of the headlights. Remember to adjust the tilt of the camera so that vehicles stay in the frame for as long as possible and prevent the sun from facing the camera, at sunrise or sunset. For good nighttime operation, you must avoid the presence of light sources near the camera, because they could prevent the LEDs from turning on. Once the camera is mounted you can perform all the adjustments remotely with your computer or an NVR.
All cameras in this range have 2 connectors: BNC plug for video and DC plug for 12VDC power. The connectors are placed at the end of a cable of about 70 cm. which protrudes from the back of the camera. This cable is useful to reach a junction box where connections must be kept protected from the rain. You can supply 12V power with an adapter near the camera or with a central power supply unit. Choose in our range of power adapters the most suitable solution for your system. You can transfer the video signal with coaxial cables. Alternatively, you can use UTP network cable with small converters called balun. If you purchase special CCTV combined cables, with coax and power cords in the same jacket, you can wire AHD cameras with a single cable. These cameras generate AHD 2MP video that must be connected to a suitable DVR. CVBS is not supported.
These AHD cameras come with UTC chip that allows you to adjust the OSD menu of the camera from the DVR by sending commands through the video cable. It's a very convenient function because it allows you to modify the camera options from remote, as you can do with IP cameras. To be able to control the camera menu remotely you need a DVR that supports the UTC protocol, like oursRK SERIES DVR
These ANPR cameras are supplied in an IP66 waterproof casing which include a cooling fan and a wall mounting bracket . If you need to install them on a pole or a corner, you can purchase the mounting accessories for our speed dome cameras that you can easily adapt by drilling the plate.COLLARS AND BRAKETS
You can use our ANPR cameras with a normal DVR, like ours DVR RK Series. With an ANPR camera in your CCTV system, placed on an access road or a driveway, you will be sure to record 100% readable car plates. It is a very important added value, which deserves the installation of a special camera. Combined with DVR, our license plate reading cameras are ideal for surveillance of gas stations, car wash, urban areas and companies .DVR RK Series
