Sep 21, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 2,130 views

The e-RouteCAM_CU20 is a 2MP PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) GigE camera developed by e-con Systems. Additionally, the device integrates a high performance ISP to target low light applications.  


According to the datasheet, the RouteCAM_CU20 is a two board solution. The base board features an ethernet transceiver and an 8P PoE RJ45 connector. The other board contains the camera module which is a 1/2.8” IMZ462 image sensor from Sony along with an Image Signal Processor (ISP).

The on-board ISP includes an auto-exposure capability and an auto white balance feature to reproduce the true color of a scene. The company suggests using this camera in low-light applications. 

The ethernet LAN port supports 10Base-T, 100Base-TX and 1000base-T modes and is enabled to stream a maximum resolution of 1080p at 30fps. The camera includes IEEE 802.3af compliance and is compatible with 100m ethernet cables.
