The CH-AHD4HD heavy duty truck cameras are a series of high resolution vehicle cameras with for commercial applications, either as a high quality rear-view or reverse camera or for use with MDVR systems to record video onboard a vehicle.
This range of cameras all use the same external housing but have different sensor chipsets and different lenses which are chosen depending on what the intended use is as cameras should be selected to suit the requirements of the overall system.
Video quality starts with the camera being used and regardless of size or quality of the display, a poor camera will always deliver poor video quality which is why Chipatronic has striven for better quality using HD video rather than traditional Standard Definition (CVBS) video.
The standard version is now the CH-AHD4HD.3 which is fitted with a Sony image sensor and has an effective pixel count of 1920(H)*1080(V) for 1080P output and is used as an external camera on many Chipatronic MDVR installations. The camera has a Mirror image as standard so can be used with a monitor as part of a reverse camera or rear-view system but can easily be changed to Real image by cutting the function wire on the cable. This change can be reversed by re-joining the wire.
A special version for use in light/dark situations that uses WDR is also available with the CH-AHD4HD-WDR camera the next step up in the range but is best suited to DVR use as the WDR effect is not always best for display on standard monitors.
The CH-AHD4HD.3 is available with a standard 3.6mm lens (approx. 120o) for general purpose and reversing use, but can be provided with optional lenses including 6.0mm (approx. 60o) for rear-vision in an e-mirror system or 12.0mm (approx. 20o)for special applications where the area to be viewed is further away or a small area needs to be shown in high detail. For most situations the standard lens will be used but please consult our sales team where there are particular requirements for the vision to be displayed/captured.
All Chipatronic AHD cameras have heavy duty power supplies for reliable operation and use standard 4 pin connections to integrate with Chipatronic cabling systems which suit all our MDVRs and monitors. This camera is available in a black body only, for white cameras please see the CH-HPC1MW or CH-HPC2DW.
The CH-AHD4HD.3 and other cameras in this series now all feature IP69K protection rating with added sealing to prevent water ingress.
A CVBS version of this is also available for use with legacy systems and standard monitors, please see CH-CCD4P-F
