Bosch selected barox to provide reliable PoE for its industry-standard MIC IP 7100i PTZ camera series.
Bosch MIC IP cameras are designed to provide extreme high-performance for mission-critical applications, such as city surveillance and congested highways. They are extremely rugged, constructed from anti-corrosive metal, and can function at -400C to +650C. In addition, built-in Intelligent Video Analytics provides maximum situational awareness for extreme environments. This makes MIC series cameras ideal for monitoring highways, bridges, tunnels, ports, airport perimeters and more.
Intelligent barox Ethernet PoE network switches are specifically designed to cater for the heavy bandwidth demands of video surveillance networks. With their rugged construction, barox DIN rail PoE switches are capable of reliable operation, even within extreme temperatures, being certified for operation to 75 degrees centigrade.
Already deployed in combination with the rugged Bosch MIC IP 7100i camera range within many key transport and road applications, the barox DIN Rail PoE switch range offers installers a reliable solution to providing robust high-power PoE, to meet the MIC IP 7100i camera series’ illumination and telemetry high PoE requirements.
barox switches are proven to provide capable and high-performance power management, remote reboot, remote device diagnostics, real-time alarms and notifications for road and transport camera systems. As an example, each barox DIN rail RY-LPITE-802GBTME switch can power up to six Bosch MIC IP 7100i cameras, including accessories, (such as white light and Infrared LED illuminators), and provide reliable active PoE management and reporting. This, along with the ability to monitor and operate energy management for all connected devices across the network, means cameras can be remotely rebooted, without the need for an engineer to visit a site to physically unplug a power injector to re-boot a camera. So the barox switch can proactively save valuable time and money and vastly reduces network downtime throughout the lifetime of the system.
Additionally, unlike generic data switches from other manufacturers, barox video switches are specifically designed for the high demands of video security networks and include sophisticated built-in cyber security, with strong network hygiene. barox cyber security features range from Sticky IP to embedded firewall functions and above all, include peace-of-mind, with barox being a ISO27000 certified manufacturing company.
Proven in road and transport applications across the globe, the barox RY-LPITE-802GBTME is employed in varied transport and road projects. These include overcoming bandwidth restrictions, providing safe and reliable PoE to a 95-camera network and providing safety monitoring of the hard shoulder of a major motorway. Additionally, the barox RY-LPITE-802GBTME is also in service in a 100-camera motorway network, where they play an integral part in the consistent traffic safety monitoring of the road. Transmitting high-quality HD images back to a remote-control room, operators constantly monitor traffic flow and safety, and any disruption, such as breakdowns or accidents. Reliable, high-resolution images are key tools for system operators, to keep users safe and the traffic flowing – and here, the barox RY-LPITE-802GBTME in combination with the MIC IP 7100i camera series has proved integral to the success of many surveillance systems.
These advantages are not only beneficial for road and motorway networks across Germany, but also for tunnel safety and to secure site perimeters too, such as those at oil and gas refineries. Here, extremes of temperature, remote locations, poor light conditions and hazardous technical processes, all demand a safe and reliable surveillance system specification. With the barox PoE Ethernet switch and Bosch camera combination, highly robust and secure video networks are being deployed to support the effective security of dedicated areas within refinery premises and perimeters.
“The deployment of barox technology alongside the Bosch MIC IP 7100i camera range has seen two leading European brands combine to bring a tried and tested solution to the German market,” says Angelo Banfi CEO of barox. “The benefits of robust high-power PoE across a range of temperature conditions, advanced cybersecurity, and simple installation and set-up, has made barox technology the perfect partner for the Bosch MIC IP 7100i camera range and the many varied applications specific to the needs of the German region.”
