Six factors to consider when upgrading to an industrial grade IP surveillance system

Feb. 3, 2010
In this white paper Moxa introduces the concept of "IP surveillance" and points out that compared to analog surveillance applications, IP surveillance offers the benefits of easy integration, remote accessibility, distributed intelligence, and scalability.
We also note that "video encoders" can be used to reduce the costs associated with converting from analog surveillance to IP surveillance. In addition, we highlight six key factors to consider when selecting products for "industrial grade" IP surveillance applications located in harsh, industrial environments:1. Power Redundancy - required2. Ingress Protection - depends on application3. Electromagnetic Interference - EMI and surge protection4. Wide Temperature - -40 to 75°C operating range5. Industrial Installation - DIN-rail & panel mounting6. Reliability - Long-term warranty, high MTBFDownload white paper
