Sentinel V-series solar powered time lapse & motion trigger camera system.

 

The latest in solar power technology, combined with a high definition time lapse ready IP camera. This stand alone image recording solution is ideal for time lapse image recording of construction sites, analysis of wildlife and conservation research, as well as some security and monitoring applications.

Supported by today's affordable solar energy solutions, this true stand alone camera recording system is now achievable. To compliment these technologies we utilise a premium high definition IP camera with amazing functionality. The quality of the camera and the images it produces creates excellent time lapse recording utilising it's full HD 1920x1080 pixel resolution.

 

System Includes:

 

  • High definition IP Camera for regular interval image capture (1920x1080 resolution)
  • Solar panel, battery and power control microprocessor system
  • Digital timer control for advanced power management
  • Steel weather proof locakble case and mounting hardware for easy installation at any location

4. PV Connectors. Your solar panels positive and negative leads plug directly to the unit with IP67 rated outoor weather resistant connectors.

5. Microprocessor controlled power management and charging system. Three stage Bulk, Float and Absortion charging.

6. Heavy Duty Steel Outdoor Enclosure.

7. Filtered air intake (multi stage) with moisture catch chamber. Easily change internal filters.

 

Battery powered with solar recharge.

For the ability to truly be a stand alone system we have incorporated a solar powered battery and controller system to recharge the battery during daylight hours while the camera and system is being used. Ideal for remote location monitoring where access to a power source may not be available or excellent for construction projects where a camera position may need to be altered periodically without the worry of connection to a power supply.

Anywhere, anytime, this solar powered IP camera system can be installed easily and quickly.

High Definition Multi-Stream Web Camera

High quality 2 megapixel HD multi-stream IP camera for extreme outdoor applications. This camera boasts high definition 2 Megapixel HD (1920 x 1080 px) resolution, allowing for the delivery of highly detailed images and coverage that is 6 times larger than a standard VGA CCTV camera. This camera also includes a remotely adjustable optical lens to alter the optical zoom and focus as well as being able to utilise digital zoom.

To maximize the benefit of the 2 megapixel sensor, the V2 Camera Head employs several innovative technologies for optimized bandwidth efficiency. The ePTZ function enables users to quickly move to a target area for close-up shots without moving the camera physically. Users can also receive only the portions of the images they are interested in via the cropping function.

Multiple imager/video streams can be delivered simultaneously in different resolutions, frame rates, and image qualities for viewing on different platforms so as to meet different needs or bandwidth constraints. This enables digital manipulation of the live viewing stream while keeping the other streams set for active event capture. The V2 also offers activity adaptive streaming support that dynamically allocates bandwidth according to the video content and trigger state.

Designed for outdoor surveillance, the V2 features auto-iris capability to protect the lens from damage induced by direct sunlight. To adapt to light changes throughout the day, the camera includes a removable IR-cut filter and IR illuminators for superior image quality around the clock. The V2 also comes with an IP66-rated housing that offers protection against rain and dust to ensure functional operation in all types of weather conditions.

With other advanced features such as tamper detection, SD/SDHC/SDXC card on-board storage, and two-way audio (full duplex), the V2 is an all-in-one high definition multi-stream IP network camera for outdoor environments.

Solar Charge Controller

Solar charge controller with internal microprocessor providing optimal charging current and voltage. The charge controller includes 3-stage (Bulk, Absorption & Float) charging with temperature compensation ensuring correct maintenance of the internal lead acid battery and maximising the service life of the battery.

The solar charge controller also includes low voltage cutoff protection to preserve the battery and to protect other system conponents from powering on below the required voltage.

Our solar systems use a 12V internal power circuit which means they are very safe to use and do not require an electrician for installation or maintenance.

The systems include an 8-day programmble digital timer to manage auto on/off times for system power. 

Monocrystalline Solar Panel

These monocrystalline silicon solar panels are designed for long life (up to 25 years) and high efficiency output. An excellent solution for remote or mobile power applications. Aluminium frames and tempered glass panels allow installation in demanding environments. To prevent moisture ingress, the solar cell modules are protected by a sheet of 3.2mm tempered glass. Operating temperature -40°C to 85°C.

Lead Acid Battery

Sealed, non spillable 20 Amp/Hour Lead Acid Battery.

It is highly recommended that the Sentinel range of systems are used only for 12 hour daytime applications. Although the 20A/H battery in the system will generally keep a system running throughout a full night when fully charged, these systems will not sustain permanent 24 hour usage throughout all weather conditions. 

Specialised Industrial Grade Outdoor Mounting and Equipment Housing

We provide custom built mounting hardware to suit the steel system case and solar panel. The lockable steel system case includes the solar powered 12V SLA battery, solar charge controller and industrial wireless modem/router housed in a weather proof environment.

Includes:

  • UV stabilised cables and plugs
  • Steel lockable case with internal cooling for battery, controller and modem/router
  • Rugged industrial outdoor design and construction
  • Insect proof, moisture containment, dust filtered fan circulation
  • Solar panel mounts

The most common mounting configuration is to attach the system to an 80mm NB round steel pole. In this configuration the customer would source the required length of steel pole and concrete or fix it into it's location, then we would provide all the necessary brackets and mounting hardware to fix the system to this pole. 

We can provide many alternative mounting hardware arrangements to suit other steel, timber or concrete poles, we can provide free-standing mounting frames for non-penetration rooftop or agricultural mounting, or we can provide fully custom mounting solutions where required.

For interstate or international customers, our systems are shipped to site in a shipping crate. Installation on site can be performed by any trademan or labourer. Simply unpack the system, attach it to the pole with some brackets and U-bolts, then turn the system on. It will be preconfigured for operation prior to delivery. With a quick phone call to our ANSO office during installtion we can remotely verify system operation and connectivity.

For customers is Victoria Australia, we can offer onsite installation options or systems can be picked up directly from our factory in Springvale where we can also provide personal setup instructions.

Mounting hardware is not included in the system cost and is quoted as a separate item according to your requirements.
