The MFR-SDR is a very rugged Mesh enabled PTZ camera environmentally sealed for use in harsh environments.

It incorporates the DTC Software Definable Radio which has a configurable transmission method and encryption standard.

Whilst Mesh transmission method is the first choice, COFDM point to point transmission is also supported as a system option, which operates along-side a UHF telemetry module for system control.

A digital wireless Mesh radio network is self-healing and exchanges encoded video, audio and data between several Mesh nodes simultaneously.

The MFR-SDR build is modular such that it can configured to include an optional power amplifier to increase system range and the option to add a battery power source.

It incorporates a Sony high definition camera with a 30x optical zoom, a 63.7° field of view and configurable video resolutions up to 1920 x 1080.

The pan and tilt axes have absolute position feedback, which allows the camera to self-correct its actual position if external forces act upon it. It also supports user presets that can be saved allowing PTZ framing and camera racking profiles to be easily recalled.

The pan and tilt drive trains are actuated by gearless stepper motors, reducing the operational noise to a minimum. Pan and tilt speeds are zoom factor corrected, giving fine control over the entire range of the lens with pan speeds up to 100º per second.

The outer casing is machined from aluminium, all of its external mating surfaces are gasket sealed to maintain the IP67 environmental rating.
