PoE Outdoor Camera Enclosure



The D-Link DCS-57 is an IP66-rated outdoor network camera enclosure designed to house all D-Link box cameras as well as third party cameras. A rugged die-cast aluminum design ensures the camera will be protected from water, snow and dust. An integrated heater and blower ensures you camera can operate in temperatures ranging from -40° to 122°F.

Single Cable Design
Since the DCS-57 is PoE (Power over Ethernet) powered, a single network cable can be used to power the camera, the enclosure’s heater and fan and also bring back video from the camera. In applications where PoE is not available the enclosure and camera can be powered by standard 12VDC.

Simple to Install
The side hinge design means the camera can easily be installed, adjusted or replaced even after the DCS-57 is already mounted in place. And a simple-to-adjust weather hood allows you to optimize your video quality and divert rain from the enclosure window.

Flexible Mounting Options
To install the DCS-57 on a vertical surface such as a wall, use the optional DCS-36-1 wall mount bracket. If your application requires mounting the camera on a horizontal surface such as a rooftop or a ceiling (upside down mounting), use the optional DCS-36-2 roof/ceiling mount.
