Colibri protective camera enclosures
Reacting to customer requests for an extremely compact, cost-efficient protective camera enclosure, autoVimation has developed the new Colibri series. The IP66 units will be introduced at this year’s VISION exhibition (hall 1, stand D02). Colibri enclosures are exclusively suited for cameras with a cross-section of 29 x 29 or 30 x 30 mm and lenses with a maximum diameter of 40 mm. With only 10 mm space between the camera and the outer enclosure wall, they add very little to its size. Weighing just over 400 g, they are ideally suited for mobile applications.
autoVimation has simplified and miniaturized the patented heat guide / quick lock mounting system for the new camera series: the cameras can now only be fixed inside the housing at one side (either at the front or at the back). Colibri housings themselves are attached to machines via a newly developed dovetail profile system with a 30 mm width. Additionally, adapter clamps can be used to achieve compatibility with the 40 mm wide dovetail profile of the company’s modular construction kit. With a diameter of only 28 mm, the window opening allows for the use of wide-angle lenses, since these can be installed directly behind the front window. An M25 cable gland with a large sealing insert allows for feedthrough and sealing of several cables with plugs and diameters of up to 21 mm. Moreover, a rear enclosure wall with an industrial IP67 PoE plug connection is currently being developed. The enclosure lids are optionally available with tamper-proof Pin Torx screws which prevent unauthorized persons from misadjusting the camera lens.
