I have a urgent matter regarding our 6000 series cameras. Data sheet states rotation angle is 350. Customer is looking for a camera able to rotate full 360 degrees.
Considering there is only a 10 degree gap, question is: is the 350 degrees value in the data sheet considered a conservative number? Is there a mechanical limitation in the camera that limits the rotation angle to 360 degrees?
Remember this is a fixed dome so there are same points that you can consider about the angle to go beyond the datasheet.
The rotation adjustment for the camera is 350 because there is a stop block on the camera. This is to prevent the installer from over rotating the lens when adjusting the FoV. This is easily addressed by mounting the camera properly on the surface. In the case of a flush mount housing, there is no issue as the entire housing can be rotated.
Regardig the tilt parameter, this can also be addressed by using the rotation adjustment on the camera. If you find that you need to tile the lens beyond the vertical, you can simply pan and rotate the lens manually. This will effectively give a greater degrees of tilt adjustment.
Then what rojunco stated above is pretty much the case;
This non-"PTZ" camera can give you an effective 360 rotation when setting the static shot, you just have to be mindful of how the base is installed to ensure the internal gimbal(s) can be adjusted to give you the static shot that you want.
As rojunco mentioned, just check to make sure the stop block doesn't get in your way. These are there so that the imager wiring harness can't get twisted up and damaged by rotating the camera around multiple revolutions.
