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.
