Surveillance is crucial to prevent theft and ensure the safety of the goods moving through the port. Coastal weather can wreak havoc on cameras. One of the greatest challenges to the port's surveillance operations is the huge volume of windblown sand.
The local MESSOA partner, installed a CCTV solution of over 40 MESSOA SDF416U cameras on crane's in Haifa port. Each crane has four cameras to observe and control it. The MESSOA SDF416U housing is rated IP67 and is very tolerant of temperature and humidity changes.
MESSOA cameras were chosen for their robustness since they operate even in an ocean climate with very little maintenance. Also, MESSOA combines high image resolutions with an internal loudspeaker and microphone, thus fulfilling important safety requirements so that the cameras can also be used to warn employees of dangerous situations.
"When we saw the images from a MESSOA camera for the first time, it was like watching a DVD - the images were so clear. This sort of quality has become an absolute necessity in our sector", explained the Officer Manager. Those were the main reasons for choosing MESSOA. He adds: "It is not enough to see what is going on - we also have to be able to hear it. Our entire safety depends on these two features." Konecranes is an industry-leading group of lifting businesses that offers a complete range of advanced lifting solutions to many different industries worldwide.
Why use WDR and Vandal-proof camera?
The SDF416U utilizes Lumii II technology to overcome night time issues. Vandal-proof housing that is IP67 certified is designed specifically for harsh environments. An optional heater maximizes protection of the camera in extremely cold weather. The unique temperature range from -30° to +60°C (-22° to +140°F) is achieved without heating or fan at only 3 watts power consumption.
The port's deployment of MESSOA's advanced cameras and equipment has enabled it to monitor its important entrance gate and provide their customers with exceptional surveillance and security for their import and export goods.
