School me on surveillance cameras

This is kind of an odd application but maybe someone can help me pick a camera. I design robotic assembly equipment for our overseas plants. It's a pain trying to help diagnose problems from afar, especially with the language barrier. I'm thinking of adding a camera to each of them so I can see what's going on. The work envelope of the machines is about 4' on a side and will be surrounded by dark tint polycarbonate so the work area will not be well lit. I'll have lighting in the work area but I can't count on it always being on since it's turned off during vision inspection sequences that use UV light. Another requirement is that it be connected to wired ethernet since the plant's wireless is pretty weak. I'd like to be able to remotely control rotation, tilt, and perhaps zoom. I was thinking something like this, but I'm not sure if it's a reliable brand.

Any suggestions? What are good brands?

No on the trendnet cameras. They are consumer grade junk. If money is not an issue go with Arecont Vision megapixel cameras. The quality is insane... so is the price. Axis would be my second choice.

Thanks. Price (within reason) isn't an issue and I don't want any consumer grade parts in the machine. An hour of downtime costs more than the camera.

How hot does it get in there? What kind of mechanical contraption is that?

They are SCARA robots mounted on a heavy control cabinet then surrounded by dark tinted polycarbonate guarding. There's no substantial heat generated by the process or controls so the enclosure it at ambient. The plant is climate controlled.

Pelco is another brand you might want to check out. We use them for weather cameras mounted around the area.

Quality stuff.

I just looked at Pelco Cameras, and I chuckled at 2MP 1080P....

Here is Arecont vision in action.



I am not affiliated with these guys, although I wish I can have these cameras around my house.
