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

DESCRIPTION
The REG-D1 license plate capture camera unit consists of
one IR-sensitive monochrome camera, one integrated panel
of Infrared LEDs, and one color overview camera. The
license plate capture camera produces optimum license plate
images during day and night settings in all-weather
conditions. The camera has optical filtering technology that
help block out unwanted ambient light such as headlamps or
sunlight, thus ensuring no bloomed-out or washed-out images
of the license plates.
The REG-D1 camera you have purchased is designed and
configured to capture images of license plates under a wide
range of ambient light to 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. It also provides protection
from voltage surges, transient spikes, and reverse voltage.

3. MOUNTING SPECIFICATION
Caution: Install with appropriate screws to suit
mounting surface. Select a suitable location that is
protected from accidental damage, tampering and
environmental conditions exceeding the camera’s
specifications.
See page 20.
Caution: Ensure the selected location is protected
from falling objects, accidental contact with moving
objects, and unintentional interference from
personnel. Follow all applicable building 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.

The REG-D1 units have a recommended operation range
with specified optimal capture distance for each model as
shown below. Any number plate recognition installation
should aim to control the traffic through a lane.

* Optimal distance calculated to allow license
plates of 120 pixels wide. 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 unit to the car is 40º.
This is both horizontally and vertically. This limits
the amount of skew of the letters on the number
plate. If the letters are skewed too much they will
start to become unrecognizable and will reduce
automatic software recognition rates.

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 ‘R’, 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, especially for
side-mounted plates.
