Outdoor-ready surveillance

A wall bracket is supplied with the camera package

The IP66-and NEMA 4X-rated AXIS Q1602-E offers aluminum and robust casing, sunshield to simplify installation time and costs. It is protected from dust, rain, snow and sun, and can operate in temperatures from -40 °C to 50°C (-40 °F to 122 °F) using High PoE (30 W). The camera does not only function at -40 °C (-40 °F), but it can also power up at that temperature following a power failure. This feature is known as Axis' Arctic Temperature Control. To guarantee heating, multiple heaters are placed in direct contact with the camera and the window.

AXIS Q1602-E offers a dual shell technology, where an internal shell stores heat in cold environments. A fan ventilates the air in hot environments, where the heat is transferred to the outer aluminum chassis for efficient cooling.

Ease of installation

One-cable installation thanks to support for PoE. A sunshield and a wall bracket are included to facilitate the installation. For higher flexibility, three cable gaskets holes are available for an Ethernet cable, a power cable and for an external device connected via the camera’s I/O ports. In addition, the cables are vandal protected and the front window is replaceable. The camera’s focus assistant indicates when the image is in focus by the flashing front LED of the camera. Having performed rough focusing at the lens, the remote back focus capability of the AXIS Q1602-E is conveniently used for fine tuning focus.

Axis’ unique Lightfinder technology

AXIS Q1602-E incorporates Axis’ revolutionary Lightfinder technology, giving more life-like colors in low-light conditions. The outdoor-ready AXIS Q1602-E offers the same high-quality features as AXIS Q1602 Network Camera.
