Tyco Researchers Win Patent for CCTV Camera Housing
BOCA RATON, Fla.
Tyco Fire & Security, through its Sensormatic Electronics
Corp., has been granted a patent from the U.S. Patent and
Trademark Office for a video surveillance camera enclosure
that is capable of receiving a camera chassis through a
lower end. The patent for the camera enclosure has been
credited to John Wulf, Luis Anderson, Mark Hauge and Steven
Schielz and has been assigned to Sensormatic.
According to the patent, the housing can be inserted into
an opening in a ceiling member and includes a flange near
the lower end and a plurality of mounting clamps for
engaging the perimeter of an opening in the ceiling. Final
insertion of the chassis into the housing and electrical
connection via blind mating connectors is by threaded
fasteners on the positioning members and flanges.
The housing is also said to have an outdoor application
with a heater and fan assembly, and the installation of the
camera can be accomplished without the need to disassemble
the dome assembly. Light-emitting diodes can be viewed from
below the camera chassis for installation and service.
The patent, issued on Jan. 31, is No. 6,992,723.
