Derwent white light illuminators from Bosch frighten Network Rail thieves away

The acquisition of security lighting specialists Derwent has allowed Bosch to expand its extensive CCTV portfolio Following a spate of vandalism and incidents of cable theft within various parts of Network Rail's infrastructure, TEW Plus Ltd instigated a successful eight week trial of an intruder deterrent system using Derwent new AEGIS White Light LED illuminators. The recent acquisition of security lighting specialists Derwent by Bosch Security Systems has allowed Bosch to expand its already extensive CCTV portfolio to satisfy and even wider range of applications and needs.During the day intruders are detected by sensors, which trigger a loudspeaker to issue a stern warning to trespassers to leave the site. However, at night the sensors trigger the powerful AEGIS UFLED White Light illuminators, which flood the scene with visible light. A day/night camera captures a colour image of the action and sends a text alert and emails pictures over the mobile phone network to alert that there is an intruder.Dave Farman, Director of TEW Plus says: "The system really works. We can claim a 100% success rate. Since installation there have been no repeat incidents of vandalism or cable theft." Derwent's new AEGIS UFLED White Light illuminators feature (patent pending) Constant Light technology, designed to compensate for LED degradation,  AEGIS UFLED White Light illuminator from Bosch is the ideal solution for railway lines and transportation hubswhich results in reduced light output, grainier image quality and reduced illumination range. Constant Light automatically controls and adjusts light output to deliver a constant level of lighting performance for the life of the illuminator, making AEGIS the ideal solution for remote locations like railway lines and transportation hubs. The cameras and AEGIS UFLED White Light illuminators are housed in imposing yellow boxes. On board power regulation means the units can be powered direct from any 12/24 V AC/DC power supply, without the need for a separate PSU for quicker, neater, night-time installations. The reduced power consumption equals lower running costs, a critical factor when multiple illuminators are required and a greener, more environmentally friendly lighting solution.

But with more this time: VIDEOR will increase its booth area by a good 40% to cater better for its new concept. Designed as a lounge, the extended area offers much room to discuss current products and, of course, product innovations in a cosy atmosphere away from the hurly-burly from the fair. And the continuously growing product portfolio gives enough to talk about: just a short time ago another important supplier was won over with Sony which perfectly expands the multibrand portfolio. Over twenty brands are now covered by the VIDEOR product range, which includes the ideal product for nearly every application: AGNeovo, Aimetis, Axis, Basler, Bosch, BWA, Dallmeier, Derwent, eneo, Fujinon, Fujitsu, GE Security, Heitel, JVC, Lumenera, Netavis, NITEK, OT Systems, Pelco, Raytec, Salesmark, Sentech, Sony and Tamron. A clear company positioning as one of the leading European Multibrand Distributors for Video Security Products.Michael Haas, VIDEOR Managing Director for the Sales, Marketing and Purchasing Divisions said on this: "Europe is our most important market. Therefore attendance at a trade fair with international dimensions is fully natural for us. We want to be on the spot at IFSEC as a reliable local representative for our customers, and of course present ourselves as a strong partner for our brands and suppliers. This can also be seen in our booth concept that is aimed on the one hand at clearly at communication with our customers, and on the other hand it spotlights the significance of our partners on the supplier side."The new positioning of Stand D30 in Hall 5 is also ideal by the way: it cannot be missed as it is placed directly at the main entrance.
