My Camera has condensation on the lens or enclosure window.

Issue

Condensation buildup is caused by an enclosures inability to compensate for moisture.

Environment

Cause

Installation, maintenance.

Resolution

An application may experience excessive humidity or moisture build up from any environmental condition.

  1. Be sure the correct enclosure is selected for the environment of the application.
  2. Verify the installation is sealed using clear caulking.
  3. In some environments moisture is beyond compensation; use bags of Desiccant or Silica Gel

 

Outdoor enclosures usually have options for blowers, heaters, and defrosters that can compensate for most environmental conditions.  Be sure an indoor unit is NOT used due to the fact that these devices do not have environmental compensations.
