Hanwha Unveils New Modular Cameras at GSX 2018
Hanwha’s Wisenet X Plus line features a modular structure for efficient installation and servicing, plus audio message playback, removable color skins and more.
The company says the X Plus Series is one of the fastest cameras to install, service and upgrade due to its modular design.
X Plus cameras also feature in-camera audio messaging playback, extended temperature handling, removable color skins and p/t/r/z (pan, tile, rotate, zoom).
“The X Plus series combines the best of Hanwha Techwin X series technology with the convenience of complete modular design,” says Paul Kong, technical director, Hanwha Techwin. “X Plus series cameras utilize magnets to lock sensor modules into the housing for instant configuration. Electricians can run conduit with a single PoE (Power over Ethernet) connection to the housing or backplate, without the camera module, allowing security professionals to snap the camera into place after the job site is clean in just minutes.”
Camera modules are available with options such as p/t/r/z, IR and a heater. Housing choices include indoor, outdoor and a new compact plenum-rated flush mount.
Removable skin covers are available in white, black and ivory, allowing changing of colors to blend in with the décor of a room. Custom painting is also possible since the skin easily separates from the camera, according to the company.
Hanwha says new features enable pre-recorded audio messages to be triggered by in-camera analytics. These messages are played out of the camera’s audio out connection. The audio files are stored locally on the camera’s SD card.
