Project Introduction

High-traffic railroad crossings remain a global safety concern despite the widespread use of active warning systems to clear the tracks for oncoming trains. To ensure that railroad crossings are safe around the clock, the Australia Authority is increasingly deploying IP video surveillance technologies to make existing railroad crossings smarter and safer. Advanced IP surveillance gives railroad security personnel a big advantage, since the information they get from an onsite CCTV surveillance system allows them to quickly identify both when and where problems occur.

System Requirements

• Since the CCTV camera and network video recorders are mounted outdoors, they must be tough enough to withstand dust, rain, vibration and shocks, and very high or very low temperatures. In addition, the devices must be immune to electromagnetic disturbances.
• Obstacle detection capability
• Real-time equipment/asset status
• 24/7 video surveillance and playback for viewing railroad crossing status

Moxa Solution

• Rugged Design: both the VPort 36-1MP and MxNVR-IA8 have a wide operating temperature range of -40 to 75°C, without a heater or cooling fan.
• Industry Certified Reliability: the VPort 36-1MP is EN 50121, NEMA TS2, IP66-rated and has Level 3 high EMI/EMC protection to guarantee consistent performance in rainy, dusty, and high EMI environments for railway applications
• Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA) for automatic obstacle detection
• Millisecond-level timestamps for more accurate data analysis
• kHz-level analog input sampling rate for precise data acquisition
• Prerecording of analog input prevents missing data
