XBlock® FCB-EV9520L 3G-SDI Full HD Indoor Zoom Camera

XBlock Vendor Logo SKU: EM18870

• IP-50 rated robust enclosure
• Full HD 3G-SDI video output
• Uses the Sony FCB-EV9520L 30x zoom camera



The XBlock® FCB-EV9520L high-sensitivity block camera with 30x zoom provides a 1/2.8" Exmor CMOS image sensor (approx. 2.14 million effective pixels) that supports 3G-SDI and FULL HD (high definition) to produce high-quality images in remote visual inspection (RVI) applications. The camera enclosure is a robust, powder-coated aluminum housing that is IP50-rated. Connections off the back panel include composite for 3G-SDI video out, 9-pin D-Sub for RS232 command control, and a 4-pin power connector.

The camera's integrated lens features 30x optical zoom, a 63.7° horizontal field of view, and a wide dynamic range, making it ideal for low-light environments. The camera includes an integrated anti-shake function to ensure clear, steady images, regional focus/exposure/white balance functions, and improved infrared night vision effects.

New Image Stabilization mode: The combination of a high-performance image sensor and an advanced image processor achieves superb image stabilization even in low-light environments.

Spectral Sensitivity: Ideally suited for low light environments, the 1/2.8 type sensor provides superior performance in Near IR (NIR) applications. New color enhancement options can make reading text and pictures less challenging. Available options include monochrome, binary, inverted, enhanced color, and the new ICR Color On modes.

Wide-Dynamic Range: The FCB-EV9520L camera monitors the luminance differences within an image in high-contrast environments and boasts a key specification of 130dB when set to max WDR at 30 frames per second with all capture resolutions.

Privacy Zone Masking: Privacy Zone Masking protects private objects and areas such as house windows, entrances, and exits which are within the camera’s range
