For many physical security providers, safely mounting IP cameras in outdoor environments has been a challenge. Toshiba Security is looking to change that with its new IK-WB80A ruggedized IP camera.
The IK-WB80A is designed to withstand “extreme heat and cold, snow, sleet and rain, even vandalism,” according to a Toshiba press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB.
The camera's metallic housing meets the demanding IP66 international standard, meaning that the IK-WB80A can be used outside in any type of weather.
The Toshiba IK-WB80A camera features a two-megapixel CMOS imaging sensor and a Vari-focal lens with 3x optical/4x digital zoom. The resulting 1600 x 1200 resolution captures large outdoor spaces (parking lot, office entrance way, etc.) to give users a single large image.
For superior night-time viewing, the camera features IR illuminators that are effective up to 75 feet in complete darkness, along with a true day/night IR cut filter. Power over Ethernet (PoE) connectivity enables the camera to be powered using the same Ethernet cable as the data.
