Bosch MIC Series Camera

Professional CCTV Cameras

In response to a strong demand for a diverse range of Professional CCTV cameras, we are providing both new and refurbished ‘legacy’ models from a number of manufacturers, to suit our clients’ exact requirements.

Industrial and professional use dictates key features such as a robust weather-proof housing, excellent optical quality, Pan Tilt & Zoom (PTZ) with high magnification, plus options including wiper (for clearing the lens), heater (for extended operating temperature range) and privacy masking. To support existing deployed networks, matching the communication protocol is critical, as well as the appropriate video standard (e.g. PAL).

There follows descriptions of some of the cameras YellowsBest has recently sourced and supplied to our customers, however, we are always keen to receive further enquiries and seek to provide alternatives as necessary; please contact us to discuss your requirements.


Bosch MIC series PTZ cameras

The MIC Series are best-fit cameras for high quality surveillance security applications, installed into the harshest of environments, thanks to its IP68 rating. This tough and vandal-resistant casing provides protection from the elements and physical attack. An integrated, long life silicone wiper, and a reversible rain shield ensure high quality images regardless of the installed environment.

The brushless-motor technology offers ultra-reliable operation with full 360º continuous rotation pan and 186º tilt control for exceptional viewing capability. Small increment pan speeds from just 0.2º per second to 120º per second gives the user precise control. This speed control is especially important when used with video analytic systems, particularly for tracking subjects when fully zoomed in. The MIC Series cameras are simple to integrate and use within systems that already use Bosch AutoDome cameras.

Typical of the range of products meeting professional needs, Bosch cameras have been available for a considerable time, and whilst continuing to fulfil the same basic requirements, have undergone a number of changes over the years in the portfolio which are important to understand. In particular, Bosch previously acquired the range of cameras from ‘Forward Vision’, and consequently it is critical when sourcing additional units to match the communication protocol in use i.e. FV, Pelco or Bosch. The main models (ranging from previously produced and currently available) include:

  • MIC-300 Series
  • MIC-400 Series
  • MIC-500 Series
  • MIC-550 Series
  • MIC-612 Series
  • MIC-7000 Series
  • MIC-9000i Series

There are also two product families, the ‘Classic’ standard camera and the more advanced ‘Professional’ series.

Therefore it is worth analysing the structure of the full model number in detail to ensure all requirements are met:



MIC – Metal (IP68 weather proof housing)

500 – Camera series (e.g. 300, 400, 440, 500, 550)

AL – Case Style (AL = Aluminium, STS = Stainless Steel, IR = Infrared LEDs included)

B – Colour (i.e. Black, Grey, White)

U – Configuration (C = Cantered, U= Upright)

R – Protocol (W = Forward Vision, P = Bosch, D = Pelco P/D, R = multi-protocol (S/W selectable))

1 – Wiper (1 = Wiper fitted, 2 = No Wiper)

4 – Heater (3 = Heater fitted, 4 = No Heater)

6 – Privacy masking (5 = Privacy fitted, 6 = No Privacy)

18 – Optical Zoom (18x, 28x, 36x etc)

P – Video standard (i.e. PAL, NTSC)

Not all options were available for all camera types, and the above model numbering applies to the ‘Classic’ series products. For the ‘Professional’ series, the ‘UR136’ part of the above number is omitted, since these models are by default Upright, multi-protocol units with the Wiper, Heater & Privacy functions included. Hence the part number is shorter, e.g. MIC-500-AL-B-18-P.
