What temperature does the Heater and Fan turn on and off a Optera

Product Line

Pelco Cameras

Environment

  • Optera
    • IMM12018
    • IMM12027
    • IMM12036

Cause

By design the Optera camera hardware is operating normal.

Resolution

There are two temperature domains on Optera:  processor and imaging.  The processor domain controls one fan,  and the fan will kick on if the FPGA die temperature sensor is >= 90C (194F).  The fan will go off once this sensor reads <85C (185F).

The imaging domain controls two fans in round-robin/failover mode and one heater.  This fan comes on if any imager temperature sensor is >= 80C(176F) and is turned off when all imager temperature sensors are <75C (167F).

The heater is turned on if any imager temperature sensor is < 30C(86F), and it will turn off when all temperature sensors are > 45C(113F).
