AXIS P3905-RE Network Camera is specially designed for outdoor video surveillance on buses, trains, subway cars and other rugged environment vehicles.
Axis Communications, the global leader in network video surveillance, announces the outdoor-ready AXIS P3905-RE Network Camera as the latest addition to the AXIS P39-R Network Camera Series. It is designed to be mounted on the exterior of a vehicle, increasing safety onboard and simplifying incident investigations. For example, the camera can be used for rearview surveillance alongside the vehicle outer surface, down mounted over a door or as a forward-facing camera.

AXIS P3905-RE has passed the demanding IP69K tests and can withstand tough conditions such as vibrations, shocks, bumps and temperature fluctuations, as well as normal vehicle maintenance like washing. The cameras also feature an active tampering alarm function for the detection of tampering attempts such as blocking or spray-painting.

“Demand for onboard cameras continues to rise as end users find more and more uses and functions beyond safety and security, such as reducing liability and increasing efficiency. Axis has pioneered commercial off-the-shelf onboard IP cameras, launching its 3rd generation of purpose-built cameras in 2014 with the AXIS P39-R Network Camera Series. AXIS P3905-RE is a natural extension of the series, providing end users with an outdoor-ready model with HDTV resolution and edge storage for demanding customer requirements,” said Anthony Incorvati, business development manager, transportation and critical infrastructure, Axis Communications, Inc. “It comes ready in a rugged outdoor housing and offers a cost-efficient and reliable installation ideal for buses, trains, trucks and emergency vehicles.”

AXIS P3905-RE comes with a 6 mm lens that provides a 55° horizontal field of view optimized for the typical use of surveillance alongside a vehicle. If a wider field of view is required, the housing also allows customers to change to a 3.6 mm lens offering an 87° horizontal field of view. The new outdoor housing is offered as a separate accessory to AXIS P3904-R and AXIS P3905-R that comes with the 3.6 mm lens at delivery. AXIS P3905-RE supports Axis’ Corridor Format, which provides a vertically-oriented view ideal for monitoring roads, tracks and platforms.

All AXIS P39-R cameras are available with either a male RJ45 connector or a rugged M12 connector. The cameras provide a pixel counter for verifying that the pixel resolution of an object meets specific requirements.

The new AXIS P3905-RE is available through Axis’ standard distribution channels at the suggested retail price of $649. The outdoor housing AXIS T96B05 is available for $99.
