Introducing new and complete AlphaCam camera range


JRC/Alphatron Marine has introduced a new and complete range of cameras comprising fixed focus, zoom and dome cameras. This product innovation was prompted by smart maintenance, easy operation and neat design.

Peter van Veen, manager of Inland Shipping “Developing our own cameras gives us the flexibility to translate the wishes of our customers straight into products. With the need for good vision in the narrow waterways in all kinds of conditions, the inland shipping market is one of the main buyers of these cameras. We have listened well to the wishes of the captain-owners and translated their wishes into cameras with additional functions. That clearly gives this product added value.”

Maintenance and operation
“The new AlphaCam line now allows us to offer a complete range of cameras that are easy to maintain and operate. The whole camera series has the same simple, stainless-steel housing. Changing the lenses (‘inserts’) is very straightforward. The housing is easy to remove without having to release any cables. This system is watertight and unique. The cameras can be controlled using a joystick or a neatly designed MFC-TS (MultiFunction Color Touch Screen) operating panel from the Alphaline instruments range. This integrated camera panel is part of our AlphaBridge concept, whereby we deliver a completely integrated, high quality bridge that has a neat design and is easy to operate.”

Smart lenses and installation
“A clever design makes the angle of the lens easy to adjust to the position of the camera that is fixed to the wall or ceiling. It means that the right picture is always created. In addition, a ‘portrait’ or ‘landscape’ image can be generated on a screen since the camera lens adjusts to this. Because an AlphaCam camera can be controlled via the coax cable, new cables don’t have to be inserted, which makes the installation straightforward.”
