A multistage climate control concept from autoVimation makes camera systems suitable for use in adverse environments. Heating and cooling modules that can be easily mounted to the outside of the company’s protective enclosures extend the operating range of cameras and improve the reliability of image processing systems. Climate control begins with passive cooling. Proprietary and patented heat guide/quick lock brackets ensure optimal heat dissipation from the camera to the enclosure. The latter thereby acts as a heat sink, giving off heat to the ambient air via its surface and enabling cameras to be used at ambient temperatures up to 10 °C above the limit listed by the manufacturer. The company also offers camera water-cooling modules that are connected to an external water-cooling system via a closed water circuit.
