Cobra - Model C309 PTZ - Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera
The Cobra C309 PTZ Camera, designed for use with Cobra Crawlers, has all the features and functionality of our standard PT2: camera, in a smaller package.Using the latest LED Luxeon Star illuminators, the camera can inspect most pipe types up to 72' in diameter without the need for additional lighting. The C309camera provides a 10:1 OpticaI Zoom. A 4:1 digital zoom is available, but is not recommended by Cobra. Digital zoom works by cropping and enlarging the image, interpolating (intelligently guessing) to create new pixels. This resultsin a blocky, low-quality image. Until this technology is refined, we believe the digital zoom hyped by many manufacturers is not useful in the field. Lights and camera;ihare the same circuit, so when camera is powered, lights automatically illuminate at full brightness.This eliminates the need for a conventional Power Control Unit.
The C309 sports all the features of our C305 Camera, plus:
- Digital control system with balanced video amplifiers
- Operates optimally through a maximum of 3.000' of multi-conductor cable
- 100% solid state circuitry designed for harsh. adverse sewer conditions
- Optional sonde to accurately locate camera in the pipe
