Built-to-Last Durable Design

With your installations likely spread out across many locations, it is important that your fixed mount imager is made to last with a durable design for maximum uptime. The MS4717 features a Gorilla® Glass exit window for outstanding scratch resistance, and its IP54 sealing specification is suitable for outdoor applications such as at the gate admissions turnstile at the local sports arena to uncovered parking access gates. The MS4717 also has a rating of multiple 5ft/1.5m drops to concrete to protect it in the unlikely event of a drop during a routine service or field installation of your enclosure.
