Sometimes you need a slow, steady pan. Other times it’s important to be on the spot in a flash. With the responsive AXIS Q8685-E PTZ Network Camera, you set the pace for unobstructed and far-reaching surveillance of expansive outdoor areas. 

Swift and smooth

AXIS Q8685-E lets operators choose between high-speed and ultra-slow pan and tilt movement – from 0.05 to 120 degrees per second. So they get smooth and jerk-free panoramic viewing when they need it and can respond quickly to events. It is capable of operating in extreme temperatures, and it can withstand hurricane-strength winds when it’s in motion of up to 47-meter per second (106 mph), and winds over 60-meter per second (135 mph) when it’s in motion and without sunshield.

Ground-to-sky view

The camera can be column-mounted, on poles or walls for a 360° panoramic view and a ground-to-sky view from -90° to +45°. If the need is to tilt upwards, up to +90°, this can be achieved by mounting the camera housing in an inverted configuration on the positioning unit. The inverted configuration gives a tilt range of  -45° to +90°.

Far and wide

With 30x optical zoom and superb pan and tilt capabilities, AXIS Q8685-E delivers long-distance identification and the widest possible field of view in every direction.  It has Wide Dynamic Range - Forensic Capture for clarity and detail in scenes with both dark and light areas. And it has Focus recall for instant focus in areas you define. In addition, AXIS Q8685-E will also automatically zoom in on objects detected in pre-defined areas thanks to Advanced Gatekeeper. And AXIS Radar Autotracking for PTZ provides automatic tracking of detected objects. In addition, white LED and illuminator bracket are also available. They can be used to further enhance performance – or as deterrence when used in combination with analytics software that turns them on in response to intruders entering a restricted area.

Operate with total confidence

AXIS Q8685-E’s slim design and many available accessories let you install it anywhere you want. The camera is specially designed to be reliable, robust and weatherproof in diverse conditions. It features SFP slots for cost-effective network connection over long distances. When both the Ethernet and fiber-optic cables are connected, the cameras can be set up in failover mode to create a redundant network link or in daisy-chain mode for connecting multiple devices in sequence.
