Rugged Cams recently released the Fortress-700, a new and improved infrared outdoor camera designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, including rain, snow, ice and even dust found in some factory environments. This is the most advanced outdoor camera that Rugged Cams has ever produced. The Fortress-700 incorporates the latest technologies to produce crisp, clear images at near-HD resolution, and does it constantly, day in and day out.

The innovative design of the Fortress-700 begins with its tough, sealed, waterproof outer case. This hermetically sealed case has an ingress protection (IP) rating of 68, which means that it is totally protected against intrusions by water, chemicals and other liquids. Even solid particles as small as individual dust grains are no problem for this innovative outdoor camera.

In addition to being completely waterproof and dustproof, the Fortress-700 can also withstand any environment Man or Mother Nature can dish out. Even extreme temperatures down to -40° below zero or as high as 160º F, are absolutely no problem with the Fortress-700, thanks to a built-in Fan & Heater that protects this camera against ice and condensation. It also includes an Anti-Fog setting that corrects the picture in low visibility conditions.

The Fortress-700 makes it easy to access the Lens Adjustment knobs and the Menu Keypad via a drop-down access door that uses a strong gasket to ensure that the IP rating is not compromised. This sealed area also has various controls for the Infrared Lamps and a handy “Video Output” for mobile monitors and CCTV Testers to view the Menu settings and lens changes right at the camera.

The Fortress-700 outdoor camera is powered by a Sony 960H image sensor. This sensor can produce images with up to 700 lines of resolution (800 lines in Night Mode), and when combined with our new 960HD DVR, can deliver 30% more resolution at 960 horizontal lines of resolution wide. This is very near Megapixel resolution, and is a great leap forward for analog systems.

One of the best features of this outdoor camera is the Easy Pro Install System, which can be used by anyone with basic mechanical skills to mount the camera just as well as any professional. At the base of the mount is a built-in, swing-out junction box that allows the camera to be mounted in any direction and position. All your connections are weather and vandal protected with this innovative new built-in feature. The Fortress-700 can be mounted on a wall, a ceiling, a table or any other surface without a problem.

The Fortress-700 also has a dual-voltage power converter that accepts either 12V DC or 24V AC, and at wide voltage ranges, such as 10-30 Volts. In addition, the 30 wide-angle, variable-power infrared lamps with Smart IR technology give the camera an effective outdoor Infrared Lighting range of 275 feet and an indoor range of 400 feet. True long range, with a 6-50mm Long Range Varifocal Lens to match.
