The CC5MPX is Campbell Scientific's first high-resolution digital network 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 CC5MPX 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 CC5MPX to be used in remote, battery-powered installations. 

Designed to work in harsh environments, the CC5MPX 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 integrated enclosure also reduces the time required to install the camera.

The CC5MPX has several options for image acquisition and storage. You can take still images or videos based on an internal timer, motion detection, or a trigger from a datalogger. The images or 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.
