Product Description


The Elmo TND4003X Color CCD Dome Camera is a simple, reliable, and highly economical solution for most basic remote monitoring needs. Designed to provide a high resolution in a compact frame, the Elmo TND4003X works very well in low-light conditions and is tamper-resistant, making it perfect for security surveillance or any other situation requiring 24-hour monitoring of an area such as a room, hallway, or production or retail space.

This dome camera utilizes a 0.33-inch color interline-transfer EXview HAD CCD (charge-coupled device) sensor, with 768-by-494 effective pixels. The TND4003X has a high resolution of 480 horizontal TVL (TV lines), is very sensitive to light with a minimum illumination of 0.5 Lux, and achieves a S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio of 50 dB or better. The Elmo TND4003X is NTSC compatible, and includes a standard CS lens mount and a VBS (video burst sync) composite video-out connector. This unit runs on 12-volts DC power, and can operate in temperatures ranging from -10 to 50-degrees Celsius. The TND4003X comes complete with features such as AGC (automatic gain control), backlight control, automatic and manual white balance, and a built-in automatic electronic shutter.

Technical Features:

  • S/N ratio: better than 50 dB
  • Sensitivity: minimum illumination of 0.5 Lux
  • Effective pixels: 768 by 494 pixels
  • Horizontal resolution: 480 TVL
  • Operating temperatures: -10 and 50-degrees Celsius
  • Dimensions: approximately 7.5 x 16 x 7.5 centimeters (W x D x H)
The Elmo TND4003X camera is a reliable and high-quality addition to any budget and security conscious surveillance system. Designed primarily for indoor use, this unit includes a line-lock/internal sync system. User's should note that the CCD sensor may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the camera should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three Lux would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the Lux level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.

About Dome Cameras
A dome camera is one of the most common indoor security camera styles. Mounted on the ceiling, and often designed to be tamper resistant, dome cameras are designed to be visually appealing and more secure than other types of security cameras. A true dome camera enables a continuous 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt operation, providing for extensive room coverage. One disadvantage of dome cameras is that they usually are not suitable for low-light conditions and must be used in well-lit areas.
