Bosch VEI-30 Dinion Infrared Imager

  • Certified all-weather active IR surveillance camera specifically designed for perimeter surveillance and other outdoor low-light applications
  • Dinion 2X imaging with wide dynamic capability to handle the most demanding lighting situations
  • Variable Field Illumination technology provides unmatched low-light and no-light performance
  • Integrated junction box, remote control, and complete external adjustments minimize installation time and cost

The Dinion Infrared Imager is a rugged, active infrared surveillance camera designed to master perimeter surveillance and other outdoor low-light applications.The IR Imager provides best-in-class images day and night covering up to 160 meters (525 feet) with unrivaled illumination quality throughout the field of view.
From the most challenging daylight conditions to zero lux night environments, the VEI-30 gives you the details you need. Our Dinion 2X technology provides optimal 20-bit imaging in natural and artificial light,giving you a powerful wide dynamic range camera solution capable of handling the most demanding lighting situations, 24 hours a day.
Variable Field Illumination allows IR beam pattern adjustments in the field, allowing for wide area coverage and greatly reducing maintenance and setup time and effort. Variable Field Illumination also provides even illumination not only across the field of view but also from foreground to background. To ensure this performance never fades over time, the IR Imager features Constant Light technology, using closed loop feedback to control infrared performance throughout the life of the unit.
The IP67-rated junction box and the camera can be hung and connected in seconds, reducing time and energy on the ladder. The Bilinx (up-the-coax) remote control further reduces time needed for adjustments during and after installation by allowing for adjustments to be made remotely on the ground.
