The PIPS P362 camera system is a complete image-capture solution designed for
use with Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) systems. Although primarUy
designed for mobile or portable applications, its small size coupled to high
performance makes it suitable for many other applications, such as parking, law
enforcement and access control.
Patented fUter and flash techniques provide excellent suppression of headlights,
bright sunlight, etc.
Field-by-field control of camera parameters enables the use of PIPS Technology's
patented TripleFlash," technique to reduce problems of plate-ta-plate variation.
As an option, the P362 system can be supplied with an integrated overview camera
(color or monochrome), set either to the same focal length as the IR camera, or for
a wider view. Thus, the P362 enables an ALPR system to always capture from the
monochrome camera and, when suitable lighting conditions are available, a color
overview image of the vehicle can be associated with the captured license plate image.

The unit consists of a
monochrome CCD camera
with high infrared sensitivity,
surrounded by an illuminator
consisting of a ring of eyesafe, infrared light-emitting
diodes (LEDs)
The rugged metal housing is
completely waterproof and
the unit has nO moving parts
for high reliability
The bUilt-in controller,
12V operation, and single
connecting cable enable
easy mobile or fixed
system configuration and
The overview camera can
be a separate video feed or
the built-in multiplexer can
send two signals on a single
An integrated photocell
can automatically activate
