CMOS camera in hot weather?

  Graham ® 19:31 03 Jun 2006

I have a wireless CMOS camera in my feral cats' house in the garden. There is also a remote temperature sensor, and this afternoon the temperature exceeded 100° Fahrenheit. The camera stopped working, but it has resumed now it is cooler.

My question is, will it be permanently damaged by the heat?

I know cats like it warm, but ours sought some shade this afternoon.

Quite right! She was not in at the time, but she often is sleeping in there when it is hotter than outside. It's her choice, after all.

Just had a look at operating temperatures for CMOS cameras and as a mean value -10c to 45c seems the range.

As with any sensitive equipment continual exceeding of the limits is only likely to result in one outcome :-(
