Due to their remote locations and valuable assets, electrical substations are targets for theft, vandalism, and terrorism. Electrical substation security cameras and monitoring are essential tools in any substation physical security plan. i2c Technologies has designed the VX400 Covert Pole Camera Unit as a first line of defense against these threats. When a potential intrusion or threat is detected, the VX400 will automatically alert monitoring personnel, who take control of the PTZ camera, get video verification, collect key video evidence, and if necessary, contact local authorities.
VX400 Covert Pole Camera Unit Features
The VX400 Unit is not like other electrical substation security cameras--it goes above and beyond. It seamlessly integrates a thermal camera and a 28X optical zoom PTZ camera, video management software, and on-board video storage in a rugged, discreet covert housing that resembles a power transformer. It supports a variety of connections like: fiber, copper, and wireless, or can include an optional advanced 4G LTE cellular data modem for primary or back-up connectivity.
Designed for Easy Set-Up
The VX400 is designed for one-man deployment, and weighs only 50lbs when fully equipped. It easily mounts on a standard utility pole and requires 110 VAC. One VX400 unit can provide coverage for an entire standard electrical substation. i2c Technologies can ship these units anywhere in the continental U.S. and our expert staff will remotely set-up and configure each unit.
Reliable Electrical Substation Security Cameras
Every VX400 Covert Pole Camera Unit features Axis IP cameras, renowned for their HD clarity and reliability and NDAA compliant for use by the U.S. government and in critical infrastructure. When fully equipped for substation protection, the VX400 includes one discreet Axis thermal camera and an Axis 28X optical zoom PTZ camera.
Remotely Diagnose Equipment Malfunction
The VX400 system is a valuable tool for monitoring the operation of equipment and crews within a substation. It allows you to remotely evaluate issues in real time, giving you the information needed to make an informed decision before dispatching a repair crew or alerting authorities. The VX400 integrates with existing SCADA and PLC’s for an automated response to critical events.
