The car plates recognition is one of the most frequent requests in the world of video surveillance, however it is not an easy task for the cameras and requires specific technologies. Designed for car plate capturing, these ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras provide 100% readable characters in all conditions . They are excellent cameras for road monitoring, but you can also use them on an access road to a company or a service station, adding a very important value to the system. You can use these ANPR cameras with ordinary NVRs or with any onvif OCR software.
See below some image captures from a real installation.
These cameras come with an anti-glare system that allows you to monitor license plates even at night , when normal cameras are blinded by vehicle headlights. For this reason, in night mode, these cameras provide a very dark image that makes the license plate stand out, illuminated in the dark by the LEDs of the camera. Watch here a demo clip which have been recorded with these ANPR cameras and an ordinary NVR.
These cameras do not use automatic shutter, like normal cameras, but fixed shutter. With our configuration software you can set the shutter speed according to the speed of the vehicles . With extra fast shutter speed you can capture car plates up to 200 km/h. If you expect the vehicles not to move so fast, you should set a slower shutter speed, so that the general image will be brighter at night. .
With low light, or at night, these cameras shoot the license plates thanks to their infrared illuminator which emits an invisible light that does not bother the drivers. The maximum capturing distance is 30 meters. The power of the LEDs can be adjusted from the computer to adapt it to the real target distance. The cameras in this range are equipped with high-performance LEDs that provide brigth illumination while maintaining relatively low power consumption. The LEDs turn on automatically below 10 lux. In night mode the camera shoots in Black White thanks to a mechanical removal of the IR filter (ICR).
When reading license plates, perfect lens adjustment is essential. For this reason, the RY series cameras are equipped with a motorized zoom lens that you can remotely control with a PC or NVR. The 6-22 mm. motor zoom lens come with autofocus to automatically focus the license plate, but, if you can also remotely tune the focus to match the target distance. Rememeber that a license plate camera must be focused to the road, so it is not meant for ordinary surveillance. You can adjust the zoom lens to monitor up to 3 lanes.
These cameras are mounted on the roadside using the wall bracket included. You can use them to monitor both the front or rear license plates with an optimal reading distance between 5 and 30 meters . When choosing the best position for your camera, consider that the optimal angle with respect to the vehicles direction is around 30°. Such an angle is recommended to reduce the night glare of the headlights. Remember to adjust the tilt of the camera so that vehicles stay in the frame for as long as possible and prevent the sun from facing the camera, at sunrise or sunset. For good nighttime operation, you must avoid the presence of light sources near the camera, because they could prevent the LEDs from turning on. Once the camera is mounted you can perform all the adjustments remotely with your computer or an NVR.
All cameras in this range support POE power via the network cable (IEEE 802.3af Class 3). To make them work, all you have to do is connect them via network cable to a POE switch or a POE NVR. If for some reason you cannot take advantage of POE power, for example if you use the camera with a wifi bridge, you can power the camera with a 12VDC power adapter. Only one network cable is needed to install our ANPR IP cameras. In this picture you can see the connection cable that comes out of the camera, with the RJ45 network jack and the 12V auxiliary power connector.
These ANPR cameras are supplied in an IP66 waterproof casing which include a cooling fan and a wall mounting bracket . If you need to install them on a pole or a corner, you can purchase the mounting accessories for our speed dome cameras that you can easily adapt by drilling the plate.COLLARS AND BRAKETS
With our IP cameras for license plate monitoring, shooting 100% readable license plates is very easy. No previous experience or difficult settings are required. You can install the camera where you like and make all the adjustments comfortably from a computer. With our installation software you can modify the network settings. After that, our configuration software helps you adjust the ANPR options by automatically setting all the camera parameters. You just have to enter the speed of the vehicles and the night time illumination and the software tool will set the camera for you. Finally you can adjust the zoom-focus of the lens and IR power with the browser. We recommend to carry out all setting operations at night, parking a real vehicle on the reading line.
You can use our ANPR cameras with a normal NVR, like ours NVR RK Series. With an ANPR camera in your CCTV system, placed on an access road or a driveway, you will be sure to record 100% readable car plates. It is a very important added value, which deserves the installation of a special camera. Combined with NVR, our license plate reading cameras are ideal for surveillance of gas stations, car wash, urban areas and companies .NVR RK Series
These cameras have no OCR on board. It means that they do not read the license plate characters, but only provide a video in which the characters are fully legible. If you want to be able to process license plate numbers, for example to sort car plate lists or authorize access, you need to combine an OCR software for car plate management. There are many on the market, which you can choose based on the functions you need. Our ANPR cameras support all ANPR software compatible with the Onvif protocol , such as Milestone, Luxriot etc. and they can also interface with other equipment by providing a standard RTSP video stream. You can buy our IP network cameras with confidence because we are among the very few companies in Italy to be a member of the international association ONVIF which brings together the main manufacturers in the field and establishes the communication standard between IP security equipment.
The cameras in this range support H264 H265 and H265+ video compression in order to combine high quality video stream and low bandwidth consumption. This is a crucial factor when using these cameras with wifi bridges. These cameras can manage 3 VIDEO STREAMING, with different compression and resolution, that you can choose from the client device. The frame rate is also adjustable up to 25 frames / second (real-time).
If you are a software developer you can easily implement our devices in your projects. We provide you free SDK libraries to control all functionalities of our devices with your own software. You can also menage these cameras via http with our CGI command list. If you need to get clean video stream for your software you can do that via RTSP protocol.DOWNLOAD SDK DOWNLOAD CGI
