High Moisture and Dust Protection Rating
All STC-3690 camera versions feature lP66-rated metal housing. A built-in heater allows to use the camera at low temperatures (up to –40° С). A fan and vent holes provide uniform heat distribution inside the housing and prevents buildup of condensate. Heater and fan switching is controlled by the camera processor.

Powerful Adjustable IR Illuminator
Built-in IR LED matrix (850 nm) ensures camera operation even in zero-light conditions (100 IR LEDs in STC-3690 and STC-3690LR; 80 – in STC-3690SLR). LEDs have different radiation angles; and this, along with the available adjustments, provides full illumination of the camera field of view. Maximum IR illuminator range is up to 100 meters.

Day/Night Switching
To prevent sporadic switching between color and B/W modes at momentary change of illumination, the camera allows to set 5-60 second day/night switching delay.

Day/night switching threshold is also adjustable.

Implementation of Sony Super HAD И CCD and X-GEN II digital processor in the STC-3690 allows to achieve the camera's wide dynamic range, excellent color rendering, extremely low color noise, and high sensitivity of up to 0.15 Lux in color mode and up to 0.001 Lux in B/W mode (IR illuminator OFF). Frame integration mode allows to increase camera sensitivity in extremely low-light environment.

Due to advanced CCD signal processing technology, the X-GEN II digital processor provides high resolution of > 600 TVL in color mode and 700 TVL in B/W mode, with the best possible for analog camera image detail allowing to recognize and identify small objects, e.g. license plate numbers.

Digital Noise Reduction and SSDR Mode
DNR III digital noise reduction feature allows to achieve higher image quality in low light environment, providing substantial saving of DVR disk space when recording video from the camera. SSDR (software superwide dynamic range) feature allows to operate the STC-3690 in contrast lighting environment, suppressing especially bright image areas and adding contrast to poorly illuminated objects.

Digital Image Stabilization and motion detection
Digital image stabilization feature is useful for removing image jitter which sometimes occurs when a CCTV camera is installed outdoors. The camera supports setup of 8 motion detection zones, with size, location and sensitivity selectable for each individual zone. Besides, up to 12 privacy zones can be created, allowing to hide certain image areas from the operator.

Easy setup
Setup of camera parameters and lens adjustment can be easily done on site without disassembling the housing, since its design allows to access camera controls by opening sealed cover at the bottom of the housing. There are two power supply options: 12 VDC or 24 VAC.
