The Hydra 3000 has been designed to support operation in harsh, outdoor environments. Incorporating the same quality build synonymous with Overview’s existing Hydra family of high-performance Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera platforms, Hydra 3000 combines aesthetic design in a rugged housing, manufactured from die-cast aluminium. Pan and tilt are driven directly, without intermediate belts or gears, by Overview’s Servotorq Integrated Servo Motors to give an unrivalled level of positional accuracy and repeatability, as well as ultra-smooth and silent motion.

Fitted with a 2MP, HD optical 30x zoom camera module and IP video encoder, the Hydra 3000 features include digital I/O, a built-in wiper and automatic defogger. The combined, intelligent illumination option delivers adaptive zoom lighting, with a range of up to 200m and the new automatic IR illumination feature enables unobtrusive surveillance during night-time conditions.

Designed and assembled in the UK, the Hydra 3000 has been specifically developed to allow for its unrestricted deployment worldwide. The Hydra 3000 has also been designed to provide easy installation. Its simple two cable connectivity, plus a range of brackets and mounts make installation straightforward in a wide range of environments.

Overall, the Hydra 3000 represents exceptional value to the end-user, delivering military performance at a commercial cost, with very long life and low cost of ownership. It offers an extremely reliable, robust, and high-quality surveillance solution for security applications that demand the best performance, regardless of the environment, including industrial plant, marine, petrochemical and public sector agency applications.
