At ISC West 2017, Vigitron will introduce its Vi3004/Vi3004LV and Vi3202, designed for easy conversion of existing analogue systems to IP.
The Vi3004LV is a 4-port Layer mini network switch providing two Fibre and two UTP ports. It can be used for either single cable runs of fibre or UTP. The Vi3004/Vi3004LV takes the place of network switches eliminating their costs with a direct connection to servers operating video management software or network video recorders.
It can also be used in conjunction with network switches extending the capacity of individual ports. The Vi3004/Vi3004LV models can be powered by 24VAC or 120/240VAC and provide up to 90W of PoE when the UTP ports are used to power up to two cameras.
“The Vi3004 series addresses the industry trend for installing both a spot and PTZ camera for parking lot and perimeter locations”, stated Neil Heller, Vigitron’s VP of Business Development. Heller went on to say: “almost every analogue PTZ installation uses a 24VAC as its primary power. The Vi3004LV uses the same power source to provide up to 802.3at PoE 30W power for spot cameras and 60W for IP based PTZ cameras. The drop-and-insert functionality further reduces installation costs by eliminating the need to home run every single location.”
The Vi3202 provides up to 60W PoE with a built-in coax extender for up to 5,000 feet. “Analogue PTZ have two features in common, they are powered by 24VAC and are transmitted over coax for distances usually between 750 to 1,000 feet. This is 2.5 to 3.5 times greater than standard Ethernet transmission of 328 feet.”, stated Heller.
“The Vi3202 addresses all of these by providing a drop-and-insert solution that eliminates the need for new power sources and wiring providing transmission over coax over 5,000 feet. Furthermore, the size of Vi3202 easily fits in enclosures of many PTZ mounts, further reducing costs by eliminating the need for extra cost environmental housing.”
