The World’s First -40 to 75°C Fanless Rugged IP Camera for Extreme Conditions

Taipei, Taiwan, April. 05, 2012 – Moxa is pleased to release the world’s first rugged IP camera that operates reliably in temperatures ranging from -40 to 75°C—without a heater or cooling fan. The VPort 36-1MP is an industrial-grade, H.264 box-type IP camera that combines HD resolution (1280 x 720), advanced IVA (Intelligent Video Analysis) technology, and advanced image technology to enhance surveillance system efficiency while delivering state-of-the art video quality. Optional housing and PT scanner accessories are available for both indoor and outdoor installation.

Industrial Rugged Design and Extreme Reliability

Moxa’s IP cameras deliver unparalleled reliability thanks to their exceptional tolerance of extreme temperatures. The VPort 36-1MP can operate comfortably in extreme temperatures ranging from -40 to 75°C without a fan or heater. This industrial-grade IP camera captures brilliant HD images and delivers reliable video streaming in environments ranging from scorching hot deserts to snow-covered mountains, and is ideal for oil and gas, rolling stock, and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications.

The VPort 36-1MP cameras are IP-30-rated and provide Level 3 EMI/EMC protection for consistent performance in rainy, dusty, and high EMI environments. The housing is tamper-proof and IP68 rated for outdoor applications, and the cameras comply with EN 50121-4, and NEMA TS2 standards to ensure reliable performance when exposed to extreme shock/vibration and high levels of surge/EMI. In addition, the VPort 36-1MP cameras are rated as safe to operate in explosive environments.

Superb Video Quality

The VPort 36-1MP cameras support a variety of lenses for different applications, and are compatible with C/CS mount lenses to meet any viewing angle and distance requirement. With a built-in removable IR-cut filter and automatic color mode switching, the VPort 36-1MP cameras are suitable for both day and night use. Highly-tuned ROI (Region of Interest), and WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) functions enable the VPort 36-1MP cameras to produce exceptionally clear images, and the optional de-mist function ensures the best image quality in rainy, snowy, and hazy environments.

High Video Performance and Network Security

The VPort 36-1MP cameras can encode analog video into both H.264 and MJPEG video streams, and can transmit up to 3 independent video streams (2 in H.264, and 1 in MJPEG) simultaneously. Advanced video encoding technology enables the cameras to support up to 30 FPS for each of the H.264 and MJPEG streams, and advanced network security functions, such as 802.1x and SSL/SSH, are also provided to prevent unauthorized access or data hijacking, a critical feature for many surveillance applications.
