FX PRODUCT RANGE
WHAT MAKES TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT A SPECIAL CASE IN PHOTOGRAPHY?
When producing a photo or video of an enforcement scenario, the resulting image constitutes the proof of the infringement and the use of image correction software is usually very limited. Consequently, the raw image must be readable and interpretable. Also, from a photographic point of view, the scenes to be captured are challenging: the speed and range of the target vehicle vary greatly, as do the ambient light levels and the equipment has to work in a variety of road configurations. The images must accurately show details such as the licence plate, the driver and the illumination state of any traffic signals. Moreover, traffic enforcement is by nature an intensive, outdoor photo application, adding further constraints to the system’s reliability, maintainability and operability.
WHY IS THE FLASH SO IMPORTANT?
The intensity of the illumination and its homogeneity over the scene are obviously key factors to producing a readable image. But the flash is also important for the overall system’s performance – a flash with a fast repetition rate, remote control and dynamic light adjustment is critical to developing a smart and efficient system. Finally, a high-quality and reliable flash strongly helps to reduce acquisition and system ownership costs by enabling the use of a medium-priced and average sensitivity camera, increasing the MTBF and requiring only limited and straight-forward maintenance.
WHY CHOOSE A PHOXENE FLASH?
To simplify and speed-up your enforcement system development, Phoxene would be glad to share its experience on enforcement imaging with you and to loan you off-the-shelf prototypes for your first trials. Phoxene offers a wide range of options, from the basic to the most sophisticated, and you are sure to find your perfect flash, in terms of both performance and cost. Then, when it comes to deployment and production, you will benefit from Phoxene’s proven manufacturing experience of flash illuminators dedicated to traffic enforcement.
WHAT IS THE PHOXENE PRODUCT RANGE?
When seeking a traffic enforcement flash illuminator, the flash characteristics required are directly linked to the enforcement scenario. Phoxene products are well known in the traffic enforcement industry with more than 2 000 units installed worldwide (Europe, Middle-East, Ecuador, Taiwan, Turkey, USA…). That success has been initiated with the FR-range product – access to datasheet here – which is now discontinued for the new product range Fx.
