COQUITLAM, British Columbia — Seon Design has unveiled a new surveillance camera aimed at providing clear bus-exterior video in all weather conditions.

The CA Wedge is a 650 TVL resolution outdoor camera in a robust IP67-rated housing. According to Seon, the unit is protected from rain and high-power pressure washing by “an envelope designed to withstand extreme weather and prevent condensation.”

With an imager that can rotate 350 degrees, the CA Wedge can be mounted at any angle and still provide a horizontal picture. The camera is fully adjustable to increase the range of viewing angles.

The CA Wedge supports lenses from 2.9 to 3.6 mm for wide-angle door-entry applications, and 16 to 25 mm lenses for identifying stop-arm violation vehicles.

The camera provides color imaging in normal lighting, and it automatically switches to black and white in low-lighting conditions. Seon said that models with the optional infrared illumination deliver clear images up to 40 feet away in complete darkness.

“No other mobile outdoor camera in the industry delivers the combination of features offered by Seon’s CA Wedge Series,” Seon President Ian Radziejewski said.
