Moxa, a networking, communication and computing solutions provider, expanded its Vport line of cameas to include the VPort P26A-1MP-T, which is for outdoor surveillance applications.
“There is growing adoption of IP systems across all segments of the security industry, however there remains some resistance to mounting IP cameras outdoors due to reliability issues,” said Joe Cook, Moxa’s business development manager for industrial video networking. Because of that, Moxa “incorporated the hardened engineering” needed to improve camera performance “in areas with high electromagnetic interference and wide temperature conditions,” he added.
The VPort P26A-1MP-T is purpose-engineered for harsh environments and can operate in temperatures ranging from minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit to 167 degrees Fahrenheit, high EMI/surge protection, an IK10 vandal-proof dome cover, a metal housing and IP66-rated rain and dust protection, including a built-in dehumidified membrane. Those features enable the camera to operate reliably and energy-efficiently without a fan or blower, Moxa said.
The VPort P26A-1MP-T features megapixel resolution of 1280 x 800 at 30 fps, along with H.264/ MJPEG triple video streams and day-and-night imaging, according to Moxa. To preserve image quality while preserving network bandwidth, the camera features Moxa’s DynaStream function, which automatically changes the video frame rate according to system needs. Additionally, Moxa’s CBR Pro ensures no packet loss in limited bandwidth transmissions, preventing “the mosaic effect.”
Network security functions, including 802.1x and SSH, are provided to prevent unauthorized access or data hijacking of surveillance video. The VPort P26A-1MP-T camera is also Open Network Video Interface Forum “Profile S” compliant for integration with third-party software platform and network video recorder recording products.
