MIC cameras integrate with lowering system

August 2012 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Bosch Security Systems has announced the successful integration of its MIC Series 550 high-speed pan-tilt-zoom cameras with MG Squared’s Lowering System – a device used frequently in intelligent transportation systems and secure perimeter installations. The combination makes it even easier and safer to install and maintain pole-mounted MIC Series 550 cameras in these settings.

“With their rugged design, MIC Series 550 cameras are rapidly gaining popularity for monitoring roadways around the world,” said Willem Ryan, senior product marketing manager, Bosch Security Systems. “MG Squared’s advanced technology provides customers with the ability to mount our equipment at the best heights and locations for their traffic surveillance requirements while providing easier and safer access to the cameras for any future maintenance needs.”

MIC Series cameras provide 550 TVL resolution with 36x or 28x optical zoom for sharp images even at great distances. The flat window with a long-life silicone wiper and optional washer system enables customers to capture images that are free from distortion in dry and wet conditions.

Built to survive harsh environments, MIC Series cameras feature an IP 68/NEMA 6P-rated housing to ensure complete protection against dust and water ingress without the need for pressurisation. And, for reliable operation in tough roadway applications, the cameras can withstand 209 km per hour sustained winds and gusts up to 290 km per hour, as well as shock and vibration up to 20 g and 2.0 g respectively.

With a Lowering System from MG Squared, MIC Series camera installation and maintenance can be performed on the ground by one technician, eliminating the need for bucket trucks, cone crews or lane closures. This provides tremendous cost savings as well as a more efficient and safer work process. It also frees design engineers from previous limitations on mounting heights, since pole and camera locations are no longer determined by where or how high a bucket truck can reach.

“Independent studies and reports have shown an estimated 80 to 92% life cycle savings in video surveillance maintenance costs when customers incorporate a lowering system,” says Martin Manners, III, vice president and general counsel, MG Squared. “Integration with the MIC Series 550 gives customers a rugged PTZ camera that will survive the most challenging conditions along the world’s busiest highways and secure facilities.”
