The 3M High Resolution ALPR Camera can provide up to 9.3 feet of horizontal traffic lane coverage while capturing multiple license plates in the same field of view. This fully integrated ALPR unit is designed to be “point and go,” and can be configured in minutes. Quality lenses used in the P382 provide customers with the sharpest IR image quality available within the 3M fixed camera family. No moving parts in a water-tight, rugged, plastic housing provide added durability in a variety of operating conditions.
The 3M High Resolution ALPR Camera uses an “eye safe” IR illuminator consisting of 264 conventional IR LEDs. This provides illumination to a maximum range of 77.6 feet making it the perfect solution for capturing license plates day or night. The use of an IR flash helps to suppress ambient light such as headlights and bright sunlight while a technique commonly referred to as “Triple-flash” technology provides a sequence of differing exposures. This reduces the effects of plate-to-plate variations.
The built-in camera processor operates 3M’s own license plate recognition software. Patented real time video triggering upon license plate presence provides optimum plate detection. A vehicle presence detector input is also provided for capturing vehicle overview images when no license plate is present.
