Vivotek cameras make a long-term impact in mining.
Straining of the conveyer belts, blowouts and other accidents were only a few of the reasons why a coal mine in the Vereeniging area requested the help of 128 Bitz, a provider of IP camera solutions to install a new surveillance system on its premises. 128 Bitz, with the help of Miro Distribution, started implementing Vivotek cameras on the mine’s premises.
Since then it has installed 140 cameras, including VI-IP7131, VI-PZ6122, VI-FD7160, VI-IP7161, VI-IP8151, VI-IP7361, VI-PTZ7121 and VI-PTZ7122. The reason it chose these specific models were that they were robust and could handle the tough terrain of the mine without any problems. Some of the features of these cameras include:
* Night vision.
* Multiple simultaneous data streams.
* Tamper detection for unauthorised changes.
* 10x optical zoom lens.
* Real-time MPEG-4 and MJPEG compression.
As Vivotek’s technology upgrades and becomes better, 128 Bitz updates the cameras used in this solution to ensure a smooth surveillance solution that is top of the range. The resulting system now has a control room which has a real-time video access to see what is happening inside and outside of the plant.
It enables its operators to have better control of the equipment they are operating remotely and blowouts on the furnaces are prevented. They can monitor the stockpiles more closely while images of the loading process can be captured for their clients. They can monitor the sludge dams and incidents can be avoided or recorded.
