NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a digital device, pursuant to part
15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. As part of it's normal operation this
device can generate radio frequency energy and if not
installed and used in accordance with the installation
manual may cause interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur on a particular installation. If the device does cause
interference to radio or television reception the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
1) Fit Ferrite beads on all cable to and from the power
supply box, within the box walls.
2) Route the composite cable between the camera and the
power supply in steel conduit piping over the entire run of
the cable up to and including connection to a deep conduit
base fitted under the camera and a conduit fitting adaptor
in the wall of the PSU box.
3) Contact
BOSCH Service Center for further advice.

DESCRIPTION
The REG-X license plate capture camera unit consists of
one IR-sensitive monochrome camera and one integrated
panel of Infrared LEDs. The license plate capture camera
produces optimum license plate images during day and
night settings in all-weather conditions. The camera has
technology that helps block out unwanted light such as
headlamps or sunlight, thus ensuring no bloomed-out or
washed-out images of the license plates.
The REG-X camera you have purchased is designed and
configured to capture images of license plates under a
wide range of ambient light and weather conditions.
The all-weather housing with a covert acrylic window
contains all the electronics. Low voltage operation, low
power consumption, LED illuminator, and solid-state CCD
technology make this camera very reliable and efficient.
A voltage regulator circuit allows for DC or AC operation
between 12 and 24 VAC/VDC.

UNPACKING
Care should be taken when unpacking the shipped unit.
Check the parts list and confirm all items have been
located. Inspect the equipment thoroughly to ensure
nothing was damaged in transit.
Contact BOSCH Service Center if a problem is noted,
see the rear page of this booklet for contact numbers.

INITIAL PREPARATIONS
•
Determine the operating voltage at the
installation site. The camera‘s Voltage Regulator
Board accepts both 12-24VDC and VAC input
without change to internal connections.
See Section 2, Input Power/Video Output
Connections.
•
Determine the optimum location for the camera.
See Section 3, Mounting Specification.
•
All cameras have been tested prior to shipment.
To verify the camera is operational when
connected to a power supply and monitor, a
retro reflective license plate should be placed in
view of the camera to see a license plate image
otherwise the image may appear dark or black.
Note: The camera has been optimized to capture
vehicle license plates of moving vehicles under all
lighting conditions.
GUIDELINES
The installation of the REG-X camera is explained in
Sections 1 to 3.
It is important that these steps are followed and practice
proper installation procedures with proper safety
equipment.

3. MOUNTING SPECIFICATION
Caution: Install with appropriate screws to suit
mounting surface. Select a suitable location
protected from accidental damage, and tampering.
Mounting location must not expose the REG-X
camera to environmental conditions exceeding the
camera’s specification. See page 20.
Caution: Ensure the selected location is protected
from falling objects, contact with moving objects, and
accidental interference from personnel. Please follow
all applicable building regulatory codes.
The following installation guidelines must be
followed:
•
Locate the camera such that it cannot be easily
interfered with, either intentionally or accidentally.
•
Select a mounting surface capable of supporting
the combined weight of the camera and mounting
hardware under all expected conditions of
vibration and temperature.
•
Secure all cabling.
•
When setting up the camera, it would be helpful
to have a vehicle parked at the position you want
to capture the license plate.

The REG-X units have a horizontal field of view of about
6ft – 8ft (1.8m – 2.4m) at the specified capture range
distance for the REG-X as shown on Figure 3 below.
Since most vehicles have license plates mounted in the
center of the front or back and the normal width for a
standard traffic lane in a controlled parking or access lane
is 8ft to 10ft (2.4m – 3.0m) this ensures that the license
plate is in view whatever the position of the vehicle within
the lane. If the traffic lane is wider than 10ft (3m) it is
advisable to implement traffic guides to control the
vehicles moving through the lane.

* Optimal range calculated with a 6ft (1.8m) lane width
for field of view to capture license plates of 120 pixels
wide for North American license plates. Most DVR
application can provide readable plates larger than 80
pixels depending on level of image compression set
on DVR.

The maximum angle of the camera to the car is 40º
in combination of both horizontal and vertical angles.
This limits the amount of skew of the letters on the
number plate. If the letters are skewed too much the
license plate will be difficult to recognize.

If the maximum range is exceeded the letters will
become smaller and be more difficult to read. At the
max range the width of the number plate covers
approximately 12% of the width of the screen.
Note: The Range is the distance from the
camera to the license plate. Working below max
range gives larger number plates and hence
more accurate recognition but less lane area to
be covered. If too close, the license plate could
disappear from the Field-of-View.
