Axis Communications, the global market leader in the network video market1, offers customers a high-intensity infrared illuminator for outdoor versions of the AXIS P33 Fixed Dome Network Cameras. The outdoor-ready AXIS T90C Fixed Dome IR-LED enables the cameras to deliver high quality images by increasing visibility in darkness.

AXIS T90C IR-LED provides fixed angle illumination for all outdoor cameras in the AXIS P33 Series.
With a sleek and compact design, the AXIS T90C IR-LED provides fixed angle illumination for all outdoor cameras in the AXIS P33 Series. The illuminator is controlled by a visible light sensor, which automatically turns the infrared light on when darkness falls. The product has pre-mounted cables and is available in two versions, one of which supports low voltage DC input; the other supports Power over Ethernet for easy installation.

“Axis’ accessory portfolio intends to make life easier for our customers, and the new AXIS T90C IR-LED is no exception,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management. “The new IR illuminator complements the AXIS P33 Series in installations where a separate IR illuminator is not feasible or is esthetically undesirable. The wall-mounted illuminator attaches directly to the camera for easy installation.”

The IR illuminator features eight powerful high intensity LEDs which provide a wide-angle light beam giving the fixed dome camera a viewing range of 20 – 25 meters in complete darkness. Using the latest technology the new IR illuminator offers long-life performance, low power consumption of less than 15W, and requires no maintenance. The AXIS P33 Series and the AXIS T90C IR-LED operate in tough outdoor conditions and extremes of temperature, as they are IP66-, IK10- and NEMA 4X-rated. By increasing visibility in demanding applications this addition to the series further strengthens Axis’ outdoor camera offering. It is ideal for installations in airports, railway stations, for city surveillance and for schools and campus environments.

AXIS T90C Fixed Dome IR-LEDs will be available in Q1 2011. For photos and other resources, please visit: www.axis.com/corporate/press/press_material.htm?key=t90c
