From mid-June 2018 on, MOBOTIX will offer its second generation Mx6 camera line with integrated MxBus functionality (camera types x16B/x26B).
The MxBus technology is based on an extended camera board. This two-wire cable system developed by MOBOTIX is encrypted against cyberattacks and expands camera functions by including practical additional MOBOTIX modules such as the MX-GPS-Box, a reliable time server for a complete video system.
Within a MOBOTIX video system, Mx6 cameras without MxBus can also process and use the data from an MxBus module that is connected to a camera within the same network. For example, they can access the time signal from a GPS-Box or activate their own recording through MxMultiSense modules placed at the ceiling of a room via MxMessageSystem.
Reusable first-generation system components
The new x16B/x26B models feature the same exterior structures as the corresponding first-generation Mx6 cameras. This means that all of the sensor modules, mounts and system components that they contain can also be used for the latest generation of MOBOTIX cameras.
All first-generation Mx6 camera models (x16A/x26A) are also available as corresponding second-generation camera models with MxBus (x16B/x26B). In order to use the MxBus functionality with the Indoor cameras c26B, i26B, p26B and v26B, as well as to add two additional inputs and two outputs to the camera, an additional MxIOBoard-IC is required.
A corresponding T26B successor for the T25 Door Station camera is planned for release by the end of Q3/2018.
