New Housing Kit Puts High Definition Block Camera in Hot Water...or Wherever Else It Needs to Go

A new, custom tailored housing kit for the Sony FCB-H11 HD block camera creates endless possibilities when looking at those "hard to reach places"

June 23, 2009 - Arizona based Aegis Electronic Group, Inc., a stocking distributor specializing in the distribution, integration and support of visible and Near IR cameras, components and modified integrated system solutions for industrial and machine vision imaging applications has released an inclusive, customizable housing kit that makes the Sony FCB-H11 fully functional within virtually any standard to harsh environment.

Limited only by the video outputs of the camera itself, the kit includes the Sony FCB-H11 High Definition color block camera, a sleek, black housing customized to meet the needs of virtually any standard or harsh environment, an Interface Board, choice of HD or SDI output and customizable cables (connectors) and cable lengths.

Used for applications including aerial surveillance, court room surveillance, machine vision/inspection applications, iron working/welding inspection, broadcasting, medical imaging, POV applications, long pipelines, hazardous waste tanks, nuclear reactor internals and more...the FCB-H11 has become the ideal replacement for the popular, yet recently discontinued Sony FCB-H10.

"We've found that people really like the camera but with no housing available until recently, the application opportunities for this particular model were limited. By incorporating a customizable option to off the shelf, standard housings, we have made it possible for an FCB-H11 system to be designed according to the specifications of our customer's applications. Whether the systems needs to be shock-resistant, water-proof, chemical or radiation protected, etc., we want our systems to custom fit each customer rather then trying to fit each customer into a standard system." Nicole Carnes, Business Development, Aegis Electronic Group

About the Sony FCB-H11

The latest addition to the popular FCB block camera series and the second addition to the even more popular FCB high definition series, the FCB-H11 provides a high-quality image that is further enhanced by the inclusion of 10x optical zoom (up to 120x including digital), a weight of around 120g, measurements of 47.2 x 43.1 x 72.2mm and the ability of the camera to be used across the 0 to 45°C temperature range, all while requiring a single 6-12V-power supply.

This camera also extends application possibilities by incorporating a new Day/Night function that enables the camera to capture high quality color images during the day and clear, black-and-white images at night and the flexibility to capture and output from standard definition (SD) to full high definition (HD).
