Project Introduction

Averaging 1.6 million passengers per day, the Taipei Metro is the busiest transportation system in Taiwan and a critical economic engine in Taipei. The Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation needs to ensure that the transportation system runs smoothly and reliably day after day, and also look after to the security and safety of their passengers. For this reason, Taipei metro cars use IP CCTV systems to record surveillance footage and provide drivers with live video from inside the train cars. Eschewing legacy analog cameras and DVR systems, the onboard CCTV system on the Nangang-Banqiao-Tucheng Line that began service in 2010 uses the latest IP CCTV technology: IP cameras and network video recorders (NVR). This system enjoys the benefits of an open network architecture, which enables live view and recording of videos not only in the metro trains themselves, but also at remote sites
such as stations and Operation and Control Centers (OCC).

System Requirements

• Integrated IP CCTV system
• All onboard equipment must comply with IEC 60571 and IEC 62236-3-2 (EMC)
• Minimum video resolution of 1.3 megapixels
• Hardware design must be suitable for installation onboard metro carriages

Moxa Solution

Taipei's MRT needed a high-performance and reliable onboard IP CCTV system able to meet critical EMC, vibration, and physical protection requirements on metro trains, and Moxa’s IEC 60571 compliant IP CCTV equipment, including IP cameras, network switches, and NVRs fit the bill.
Moxa provided three kinds of IP cameras for this onboard CCTV system.

• VPort P16-2MP-M12 : Ceiling-mounted, dome-type IP camera for in-car surveillance
• VPort P26A-2MP-M12 : Ceiling-mounted, low-illumination, dome-type IP camera for surveillance in the engineer’s compartment
• VPort P06HC-2MP-M12 : Hidden-type IP camera for the intercom system

 All three IP cameras conform to ONVIF™ standards, meet the rugged EMC, temperature, vibration and shock design requirements of IEC 60571, support Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution for large images, and are equipped with the newest sensor chip for high-quality images. In addition to IP cameras, Moxa also provided customization in the hardware and form factor design based on requirements set by the Taipei MRT for IP cameras that are visible to passengers.

Moxa also provided two NVRs.
• V2416: For local in-car video recording
• V2616: For video recording, live display, and system management in the engineer’s compartment

These NVRs come with a patented anti-vibration kit, two 2.5-inch hard disk trays that have passed the IEC 61373 vibration test, and are hot-swappable for easy and simple hard disk installation and maintenance.

Moxa's TN-5516-8PoE Ethernet switches were deployed throughout the MRT to form an IP-based communications backbone, with IP cameras powered through the switch’s PoE ports and bandwidth increased with the switch’s port-trunking function.

Why Moxa

• A Wide selection of IEC 60571 compliant IP cameras, network switches, and NVR
products to facilitate a reliable onboard surveillance application
• Rugged full HD IP cameras guarantee outstanding image quality for CCTV systems
