Industrial Ethernet in Manufacturing Automation

The Kelanis mining site, located in Central Kalimantan Province, Indonesia, close to the Barito River is one of the most important production sites for Adaro in Indonesia. Operations at the site include exploratory drilling, coal mining, stockpiling, and then transporting the coal along the river on barges. In order to achieve better control and higher security over their operation, Adaro initiated a project to install an industrial-grade, rugged IP CCTV system.

System Requirements

Field site devices must be able to operate without a fan in a high temperature, dust-filled, outdoor environment.
Since the site extends over a wide area, products must have a long MTBF and rugged design to reduce the amount of maintenance effort required.
A third party VMS is required since the new installation must be compatible with the existing CCTV system.

System Description

The existing system uses Axis cameras. However, the customer decided to use an industrial-grade IP CCTV solution for the new system to better meet environmental requirements. In addition, a third party VMS was used to ensure that Moxa's IP cameras and the original Axis IP cameras can connect to the same system.

In order to create a centralized CCTV system, the VMS server is connected to the original server in the central control room, with IP cameras installed along the production perimeter and transportation route.

Business Benefits

Moxa’s IP cameras can function in an operating temperature range from -40 to 75°C without heater or cooling fan.
Compared to commercial IP cameras, the rugged and fanless design ensures a lower failure rate when used outdoors, and reduces maintenance costs.
