The CC5MPX is a high-quality, high-resolution digital network video camera specifically designed for remote outdoor observation applications. The camera consumes low power, making it ideal for outdoor observation in remote locations using a solar power battery. The camera can also operate with AC power where AC is available. It has a high-quality and very rugged environmental case that enables it's outdoor use in extremes of temperature. It is compatible with Campbell Scientific dataloggers. The camera capture and retrieval modes are highly configurable and camera settings are made through an easy-to-use web interface.
The camera can produce still images of up to 5 megapixels and video up to 720p. The camera's image and video capture trigger modes include two independent self timers, or external triggers such as datalogger control, motion detection, web page control making it an ideal camera for a wide variety of outdoor observation and surveillance applications. An outdoor rated SD memory card for image storage is available as an option.
The camera can send images and video directly to your desktop or publish them to the web via various communications options! Images and video taken by the camera can be delivered to you from remote locations via cellular modem, Ethernet 10/100, RS-232, RS-485, Satellite, and PakBus. You can configure the camera to act a a webcam that publishes images and video directly to a website using various communications devices.

The camera is in use worldwide and is ideal for the following outdoor observation and surveillance applications:
The CC5MPX camera is Campbell Scientific’s first high resolution digital network outdoor observation and surveillance camera with video capabilities. It produces JPG images with a resolution of up to 5 megapixels, and shoots videos with a resolution of up to 720P. The camera can function as a stand-alone camera or can be connected to a Campbell Scientific datalogger or another PakBus® device. Several power conserving modes allow the camera to be used outdoors in remote, solar power battery installations.
This outdoor observation camera is designed to operate in harsh environments; the camera operates at temperatures as low as -40°C and as high as 60°C. It has an integrated environmentally sealed enclosure that protects the camera from moisture and high-humidity. The camera's high-quality integrated outdoor rated enclosure also eliminates the time required to install the camera in a separate enclosure.
The CC5MPX camera has several options for image and video acquisition and storage. You can take still images and videos based on an internal timer, motion detection, or a trigger from an external PakBus device (such as a datalogger). The images and videos can then be stored on an SD card, saved in a datalogger’s memory, sent to a PC via email, or transmitted to an FTP server.
|Clock Accuracy||±2 minutes per year (-40° to +60°C)|
|Photo or Video Capture Triggers||Two independent self timers, external trigger, motion detection, web page control|
The L18549 Camera Mounting Kit is used to mount the CC5MPX camera to a CM202, CM204, or CM206 crossarm. The crossarm then attaches to a tripod, tower, or user-supplied pole (1.0-in. to 2.1-in. outer diameter). The bracket’s design facilitates the aiming of the camera.
The CC5MPX camera is compatible with any PakBus datalogger that has 2 MB or greater of on-board memory. The datalogger must have a current operating system.
*Limited to RS232 Port with Null Modem, NO USR Drive Capability.
**The CR510, CR10X, and CR23X must be the -2M version and must use the PakBus operating system.
The CC5MPXPWRCBL-L Power and I/O Cable connects the camera to:
An Ethernet cable is required to configure the camera. Typically, the RJENVCBL-L Environmental Cable is used. The Ethernet cable connects the camera to a network router, cellular modem, or laptop. With this connection, the user can access a web interface that:

Current firmware for the CC5MPX Peripheral Interface Controller (PIC)
Note: In order for the CC5MPX to accept the PIC firmware the CC5MPX OS 1.23 or higher must be running in the camera. Retrieve the CC5MPX_PIC_UPDATE_V2_JUNE_17_2014.hex.gz firmware from the .zip file. Do not extract the firmware update file "CC5MPX_PIC_UPDATE_V2_JUNE_17_2014.hex.gz". This compressed file must be sent to the CC5MPX as a “.gz” file. Details related to updating firmware can be found in the CC5MPX manual.
