TF-HCF-CAM: An Excellent Choice for a Cockpit Camera
In-cockpit cameras play a critical role in pilot training, aviation safety, post-flight evaluation, and not to mention, aerial photography.
HD recording systems like flight data recorder (FDR) and cockpit voice recorders (CVR) record all the audible sounds in the cockpit, including voice transmissions by radio between ground control officers and verbal communication between crew members. These recording systems help accident investigators determine the root cause of an accident and help pilots monitor engine conditions.
TF-HCF-CAM (3G-SDI camera), a military-grade HD camera that’s made from 7075-T6 aluminum, can record HD videos and is rugged enough to be installed and operated in any military, aviation, or commercial application.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss some features of the TF-HCF-CAM that make it an ideal cockpit camera:
Helical-Centroid Focusing (HCF)
HCF is a unique focusing camera method that’s found in high-end military applications. The rugged 3G-SDI camera provides a large field of view (FoV), allowing the camera to capture crisp and clear images at a close range with very fine adjustments using the helical centroid focusing feature.
Form Factor and Mounting
If you’re passionate about aerial flight tours, invest in a high-quality camera like TF-HCF-CAM that offers easy mounting and installation with maximum safety.
While measuring at only 80mm x 30mm x 30mm, the camera has a robust mounting bracket, allowing you to install it in tight areas, especially atop the cockpit glareshield.
Since it’s designed explicitly for aerospace and military applications, it is aerodynamic and can survive harsh weather conditions and external pressures.
The TF-HCF-CAM supports resolutions up to 1920x1080 at 60fps and has a built-in anti-vibration methodology. This prevents vibrations from outside sources from reaching the sensor and creating a blur or “jello effect.”
What’s more, it has multiple lens options, including a 2.9mm lens that features an ultra-wide angle with a 175° Horizontal Field of View and a 16.0mm lens with a 25° zoomed-in Horizontal Field of View.
The TF-HCF-CAM has a built-in RS485 function that makes data acquisition and control applications a breeze in systems that are completely automated or do not require a user interface.
Therefore, you can control the camera using existing equipment in an aircraft, which makes it a breeze!
