5 min Set Up, Cost efficient, True ANPR/LPR 24/7
The CT45 is a ‘best in class’ intelligent ANPR camera utilising the latest camera and ANPR software technology, designed and manufactured in Europe by TagMaster. The reliable hardware and advanced recognition engine are developed in-house, providing quality and performance that are second to none. Motorised zoom lenses with auto focus for both ANPR and colour overview makes the CT45 quick and easy to setup and the first choice for engineers.
The Linux Operating System ensures a fast, stable, and secure platform with no licencing issues. Power over Ethernet (PoE+) means mains power is not required, making camera installation and set-up straightforward and cost effective. The infra-red plate capture camera supported by the enhanced internal LED array provides true ANPR for maximum plate capture performance 24/7. High quality contextual images are captured with the integral colour overview.

Easy 5 min Set up
When on site, you will have the CT45 up and running in just 5 minutes. The installation and set-up process are very easy. Only one ethernet cable required for both powering the camera up (PoE+) and network connection.
Every camera is supplied Wi-Fi enabled for set-up, making the whole process simple. Using Wi-Fi on your smart phone, tablet or laptop you can connect to the CT45 and access the set-up menu. The motorised zoom lenses with auto-focus for ANPR and overview cameras can be set up in minutes.
Each camera is shipped with a quick set up guide and a comprehensive user guide and technical manual to refer to if needed.
This powerful ANPR camera provides the ultimate performance in number plate recognition. Incorporating adjustable motorised lenses with auto focus, Linux based OS, PoE+, integral colour overview and true infra-red plate capture camera giving market leading ANPR accuracy.
The CT45 also offers bi-directional reading across a 7-metre wide field of view, tracking direction of travel and reporting entry and exit with a single camera. This is perfect for free flow parking management using just one camera, reducing costs.
Multiple network interfaces (JSON, UTMC, XML and more) to allow easy integration to third party parking back office systems. There is also an integral relay for easy local barrier control and Wiegand output for integration to access control systems.
2 x CT45 cameras can be linked and configured as primary and secondary readers, reading front and rear plates simultaneously or covering a very wide lane configured side by side, but only reporting one result. This can help to give extra performance in challenging conditions or very wide lanes, or where you need to maximise correct recognition by capturing both front and rear plates on the same vehicle at the same time.
The colour overview camera can be configured for secondary ANPR to capture non-reflective plates.
Data can be retrieved from the camera to be used for analysis. For example, it’s possible to monitor the usage of your car park throughout the day and identify peak dates and times or capture data for traffic surveys.
The CT45 uses the tried and tested CitySync recognition engine with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. The software provides a confidence factor to each read, advising you of the confidence of the plate being read correctly. This allows you to filter by low confidence rates to help you manually check the plate reads if desired.
RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) is available from the CT45, giving the option for live video to be integrated into an external video recording system for additional CCTV coverage on the site.
Heartbeat functionality integrating to Jet Management Suite or external systems gives the option for camera status to be monitored and any failure to be reported in real time, saving time and money.
Innovative ‘fingerprint’ technology provides matching of the actual plate image as well as the conventional text matching (damage, bolts etc.) to improve plate matching performance with challenging plates. Cameras must be connected to a Jet Management Suite server for fingerprint to work.
Cost of ownership
The CT45 is premium product that is competitively priced. We are confident that it has one of the best correct recognition rates on the market, harvesting the maximum number of plates for free flow parking management or giving best performance for access control & security.
Motorised zoom lenses with auto focus give maximum flexibility on installation, so you only need to stock one camera to cover all ranges from 3 to 25 metres.
Installation costs can be lower with PoE+ as less time and infrastructure are required.
Cameras can be accessed remotely for diagnostics and maintenance, saving time and money travelling to site.
The Linux based Operating System is secure stable and free from recurring licence fees.
