The CC5MPXFE is a high-resolution digital network camera with video capabilities. The camera has been fitted with a circular fisheye lens that allows for the capture of hemispherical images or video (click on the image gallery for an example image). It requires little power, making it ideal for battery-powered installations. The camera can produce images of up to 5 megapixels, and has a rugged environmental case that allows it to be used outside in extremes of temperature. It is compatible with Campbell Scientific dataloggers. An SD memory card for image storage is available as an option.Read More
The CC5MPXFE produces JPG images with a resolution of up to 5 megapixels, and shoots videos with a resolution of up to 720P. The CC5MPXFE 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 CC5MPXFE to be used in remote, battery-powered installations.
Designed to work in harsh environments, the CC5MPXFE 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 eliminates the time required to install the camera in a separate enclosure.
The CC5MPXFE 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 an external PakBus device (such as 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.
The L18549 Camera Mounting Kit is used to mount the CC5MPXFE camera to a CM202, CM204, or CM206 crossarm. Th e 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 is compatible with any PakBus datalogger that has 2 MB or greater of on-board memory. The datalogger must have a current operating system.
*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.
