The E-3NVTV-170-940 is a high performance day/night surveillance system for medium to long range video observation.


Unlike normal night vision equipment, the E-3NVTV-170-940 is able to operate effectively during the day, as well as the night. Incorporating a highly sensitive CCD camera and advanced electronic processing, the unit is able to automatically adjust the contrast and brightness to suit the light level the camera is operating under. In addition to this, the E-3NVTV-170-940 utilises a pixel doubling technique which provides additional exposure space for the CCD during the night. In typical urban street lighting situations or moonlit rural settings, the camera can provide excellent video at night.


The lens fitted to the E-3NVTV-170-940 is a fixed F1.6, 170 mm lens. For such a long range lens, this is an amazingly low F-stop and hence the low light operation. A focus ring at the rear of the unit allows for focus adjustment.


For additional illumination at night a special laser IR illuminator is fitted. This allows covert illumination of the subject up to 500 metres in poor lighting conditions.Four output levels of power output can be set up depending on the range. The laser is invisible to the human eye at distances beyond 60 metres.
Below 60 metres a dull red glow is visible.


Featuring a standard composite video output, the unit can be connected to a standard video monitor for display or a DVR or VCR for recording. The video output is real-time (25 fps). Our E-3NVTV-170-940 does not use any slow shutter mode to achieve its low light performance.


The camera is ideal for short term surveillance applications and features a standard tripod mount, as well as on or off controls for the laser illuminator. Operation is off 12 VDC. An optional waterproof carry case is also available.
