Bosch GTC400C 12V Max Connected Thermal Camera


Bosch GTC400C 12V Max Connected Thermal Camera Review

The Bosch GTC400C 12V Max Connected Thermal Camera is a high quality thermal imaging device. It is designed for use with industrial equipment. It provides accurate temperature readings up to 4500°F (2400°C). Its large sensor allows it to provide detailed images of small parts such as screws or bolts.

These are used in many applications where precision is required.

It supports both NTSC and PAL video signals, which means it will work on any television set that accepts these two video formats. It also features a built-in IR emitter so it can operate in environments without direct sunlight.

This high-end camera is made with superior quality materials. Its housing is constructed from lightweight and sturdy anodized aluminum. It features a glass window that protects the lens and CCD sensor. The lens itself is multi-coated to ensure a clear, glare free image.

A protective rubber lip surrounds the front of the camera to protect it from damage.

This camera uses a 12V power supply. It comes with both a hardwired and detachable 12V power cord. The cable is five meters in length. It features a standard cigarette lighter connector at one end and bare wires at the other.

The bare wires can be attached to any 12V power supply.

This camera comes with multiple connection options. It has both USB and BNC connectors. This allows it to be connected directly to CCTV DVRs as well as computers with analog video input capabilities.

This camera has a built-in LED spotlight. It can be used to illuminate objects in dark or poorly lit areas. It can also be used to help with alignment when setting up cameras. The user can separately control the intensity of the light and the camera from a single menu.

The lens and sensor on this camera are not protected from the elements. For outdoor surveillance purposes, you will need to add a dome enclosure or IP66-rated housing for protection. All of these components are sold separately.

This camera requires no additional drivers or software to install. It is compatible with most operating systems (including Windows, iOS, and Linux). This camera can also be used as a web camera when connected to a computer.

Applications: Machine vision, surveillance, inspection, quality control, scientific research, and more.
