Network Video Technologies (NVT)
|NVT's UTP and CCTV Hybrid Video transmission products have been awarded Network Rail type approval|
, has been awarded Network Rail type approval for the company's range of multi award-winning unshielded twisted pair (UTP), CCTV Hybrid Video transmission products, including PVDTM (Power, Video & Data) technology.
Network Rail type approval affords NVT's comprehensive range of UTP Hybrid Video transmission products with a PADS (Parts and Drawings System) number, allowing their inclusion into the critical infrastructure of any Network Rail site across the UK. Accreditation guarantees that NVT products meet the rigorous standards of railway infrastructure application, and that the manufacturer provides a high level of aftersales and technical support.
Network Rail owns approximately 2,500 stations throughout the UK, including major interchanges such as London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, and Edinburgh. The award of type approval to NVT products now offers installers and specifiers working on railway projects an unparalleled choice of certified, high-performance and cost-effective UTP CCTV video transmission solutions. "NVT UTP is much more installer friendly than the fibre or coax transmission alternatives, due to the flexible nature of Cat5 cable. Simpler and quicker to install, it can help minimise engineer time onsite, saving associated costs."
Comments Stuart Harris, NVT's National Sales Manager: "All NVT products provide unparalleled interference rejection and ground loop isolation, a critical feature in the high-interference rail environment, where 750V DC live power lines can generate surges of up to 10,000 amps in close proximity to the CCTV transmission network."
The deployment of NVT products is already yielding significant savings, superior image quality and consistency of interference free camera video in railway infrastructure surveillance systems worldwide. These include London Waterloo, Derby, First Transpennine, and South Africa's Guatrain project, to name but a few.
