The demand for a reliable CCTV system for industrial applications is becoming a necessity. Implementing and installing video surveillance solutions outdoors or in harsh industrial environments is much more complicated than installing in indoor environments, where conditions are controllable, and system components are easily accessible. Moxa is leading the way with a complete portfolio of industrial-grade IP cameras that function reliably in harsh industrial environments, where security and safety are top priorities. Moxa’s industrial IP cameras offer extremely low RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) rates of below 0.5%, as well as industry-leading MTBF values, which significantly reduces users’ total cost of ownership due to the high reliability and lower maintenance efforts required for Moxa’s industrial-grade IP cameras.
The environment where your IP cameras will be installed is the determining factor when deciding whether to choose industrial-grade or commercial-grade IP cameras. The three applications below, which are often in outdoor, harsh industrial environments or in remote and unmanned sites, illustrate the most common scenarios when you should deploy industrial-grade IP cameras.
The major purpose for most CCTV cameras in industrial environments is for protection against crime and to reduce accidents. In industrial settings, security cameras are commonly installed at territorial borders, perimeters, oil and gas refineries, and industrial factories.
IP cameras play an important role in industrial process monitoring for enhancing safety and increasing process automation efficiency. In industrial scenarios, IP cameras are often mounted on large machinery, as well as on equipment in hazardous and remote areas such as harbors, mines, offshore rigs, and industrial factories.
IP cameras used for traffic monitoring are one of the most popular video surveillance applications. Their functions include recording traffic patterns, detecting accidents, and ticketing. IP cameras are often placed along busy roads, waysides, and highway intersections.
For most indoor CCTV system installations, cameras are only designed to function at room temperature and personnel have easy access to each system component. However, industrial solutions are often deployed in harsh outdoor environments, or at remote/unmanned sites and traditionally face several challenges.
Cameras deployed in extreme temperatures will often have components that cease to function correctly.
Cameras that are deployed in outdoor environments will often malfunction due to rain, dust, or corrosion.
Lots of time, money, and personnel are required to replace and maintain industrial cameras since they are often installed in remote and unstaffed locations that are difficult to access.
Unlike commercial IP cameras, Moxa’s industrial IP cameras are specifically designed for outdoor, harsh industrial environments, and remote sites. They are not only equipped with rugged features to guarantee reliable performance and provide constant video streams when confronted with harsh, wide-temperature conditions, but also offer impressive MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) values and low RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) rates of below 0.5% to significantly reduce the cost of maintaining your CCTV camera system. Moxa’s IP camera solutions are well suited for the types of extreme environments seen in factories, oil and gas, ITS, mining, railway, trackside, and territorial borders.
