exactly is this IP Rating in your camera specs?”
outlines an international classification system for the
sealing effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment
against the intrusion into the equipment of foreign bodies
(i.e. tools, dust, fingers) and moisture. This classification
system utilizes the letters "IP" ("Ingress
Protection") followed by two digits.
of Protection - First Digit
The first digit of the IP code indicates the degree
that persons are protected against contact with
moving parts and the degree that equipment is
protected against solid foreign bodies intruding
into an enclosure.
of Protection - Second Digit
The second digit indicates the degree of protection
of the equipment inside the enclosure against the
harmful entry of various forms of moisture (e.g.
dripping, spraying, submersion, etc.)
from a large part of the body such as a hand (but no
protection from deliberate access); from solid
objects greater than 50mm in diameter
against fingers or other object not greater than
80mm in length and 12mm in diameter.
from entry by tools, wires, etc., with a diameter of
thickness greater than 1.0mm.
from entry by solid objects with a diameter or
thickness greater than 1.0mm
from the amount of dust that would interfere with
the operation of the equipment.
from dripping water.
from vertically dripping water.
from sprayed water.
from splashed water.
from water projected from a nozzle (jets).
against heavy seas, or powerful jets of water.
against immersion between .15cm and 1m depth.
against complete, continuous submersion in water
under pressure. Submersion depth and time must be
specified by the end user. The requirement must be
more onerous than IP67
What's the best
transmitter for my application?
We hear a lot of people asking if they should use the Cube
transmitters, the TV6, the VS2 or one of the ready to go
2.4Ghz camera packages. Basically, you should be able to tell
by what distance, power, and size requirements you have.
Consult our online descriptions and our catalog. Generally,
the cubes are best for battery power, and times when you need
a small transmitter. The VS2 and TV6 are better for
broadcasting your VCR signal around the house. Generally, the
TV6 will provide better range and a better picture. But, you
should take the channels that these units broadcast on into
account. Finally, our 2.4Ghz pacakges are best for situations
where you need a quick, simple an inexpensive way to send
color video right from a camera to a TV. Our CCD316 system
also has the flexibility of being used with a video source
other than the included camera.
My TV6 is
Make sure you are trying to receive the signal on an
appropriate channel. If one channel is giving you trouble, try
a different one. Adjust R3 and R7 as described in the manual.
And, as always, double check your parts placement and values.
What is the
current draw of these cubes?
The C2000 (standard power) draws 10mA, while the C2001 (high
power) draws 35mA.
