Fixed ALPR Cameras

PIPS fixed cameras feature unique technologies to enhance read accuracy by utilizing Triple Flash Technology and suppressing ambient light sources such as headlights and bright sunlight

Fixed Wide Lane ALPR Camera P492

Fully integrated, web-enabled camera with added power for a wider field of view

The newest member of the PIPS fixed ALPR camera family, the PIPS P492 camera is a self-illuminating, LED Infrared (IR) camera for high performance image processing, contained within a single water tight, sealed enclosure.
Developed in-house, the camera’s embedded Optical Character Recognition (OCR) engine offers customers a single point of accountability. Customers who value redundancy in their system will appreciate that P492’s on-board OCR reads license plates directly, independent of network or back-end system availability or workload.
The PIPS P492 camera captures both IR and color images to aid improved revenue collection capabilities in tolling applications. PIPS P492 is designed to capture and analyze multiple license plates in the same field of view, and uses a multi-exposure technique, commonly referred to as “Triple flash” technology, to effectively suppress ambient light such as headlights and bright sunlight. The camera is fully web-enabled and can be configured and monitored from a standard web browser.


  • On-board PIPS OCR engine
  • 2048 X 720 pixels; color and IR
  • 44 High power LEDs
  • Self trigger or external trigger mode
  • Traffic Lane coverage of 13.6 ft (4m)
  • Simultaneously captures and analyzes multiple license plates in the same field of view
  • Single cable for power, ethernet, serial, trigger, and streamed color video


  • Superior customer service and accountability with a single vendor for both camera and OCR
  • Integrated LED camera and on-board OCR reduces system design, integration, and installation costs
  • High performance OCR improves accuracy and reduces operating costs
  • Improved system redundancy in tolling applications with direct license number output from each individual camera
