Overview of the Axis Q1941-E

Call for availability prior to ordering

Part of the Axis Q19 series, this outdoor-ready thermal network camera offers thermal imaging in 384 x 288 resolution that can be scaled up to 768 x 576. This advanced model delivers reliable security monitoring of areas that are often in complete darkness or subject to smoke, haze or fog. Additional features include support for two-way audio, edge storage with MicroSD card (not included) and optional lens sizes (please select in the dropdown above).

The unit’s IP66 and IP67 rated aluminium housing and built-in window heater allows it to be used effectively in outdoor areas, providing protection from harsh weather conditions and dust. A selection of lenses in focal lengths ranging from 7mm to 60mm offer a choice of viewing angles suitable for a wide variety of applications (select a specific lens size in the dropdown menu above).

Video motion and audio detection methods can be configured to trigger an alarm and alert the user of activity - delivering reliable and accurate IP CCTV monitoring. Thermal cameras are less sensitive to issues with light conditions and shadows, achieving high accuracy with fewer false alarms than non-thermal network cameras. Additionally, Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) helps to reduce the effects of camera movement from wind or vibrations – providing a clear image suitable for examination.

The unit can provide two-way audio when a microphone and speaker (not included) are connected via the external I/O ports, enabling audio recording and verbal interaction.

Axis’ Zipstream technology lowers bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of up to 50%, ensuring that important details in the image are retained in the video stream, while unnecessary data can be removed. Local storage with the use of a MicroSD card (not included) offers a data backup and can be used as a decentralised recording solution. The camera receives power through the network cable using PoE – an easy and low-cost installation method.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply included; a PoE midspan can be selected from the above drop down menu if required.
