VPort™ 66-2MP will feature a vandal-proof design, along with IP66 rain and dust protection Moxa, one of the world's leading manufacturers of communications equipment for harsh environments, recently unveiled at the International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC West 2015) the new flagship of its IP network video surveillance family: the VPort™ 66-2MP. The 1080p PTZ dome camera is scheduled for production by July 1st and has been specifically designed for mission-critical video surveillance applications in industries such as transportation, oil and gas, energy, and factory automation, as well as in challenging outdoor locations. Moxa presented a fully operational unit at the show with final technical specs. Suitable for outdoor operations: Setting a higher standard for robust engineering, the industrial-grade VPort™ 66-2MP will feature a vandal-proof design, along with IP66 rain and dust protection, an operating temperature of -40° F to 204° F, and a NEMA 4X type form factor to assure absolute reliability in helping protect people, secure property and maintain safe, efficient processes. Unlike standard cameras, the VPort™ 66-2MP will be able to operate outdoors without requiring an external housing and blower, significantly reducing the potential points of failure while saving both power and space. "Achieving truly reliable video surveillance in harsh environments has been extremely difficult and costly for a long time. Our engineers have spent years developing the technology to address this growing customer need, and I'm extremely proud to present the VPort 66-2MP today," said Jei Mercado, Product Marketing Manager for Moxa. "When it comes to the immediate recognition of security threats in harsh environments, there is no more reliable camera than the VPort 66-2MP." "When it comes to the immediate recognition of security threats in harsh environments, there is no more reliable camera than the VPort 66-2MP." High resolution: As notable as its robust design, the VPort™ 66-2MP's imaging prowess is equally impressive. To provide situational awareness of a large area, the camera features 360° endless PAN enabling continuous following of a subject, TILT (-6° to 96°), and up to 30x optical zoom to capture the smallest of details such as a license plate. The camera's two-megapixel sensor delivers HDTV 1080p video resolution of 1920 x 1080 at 30 fps, high colour fidelity and a 16:9 widescreen format. Multiple, individually configurable H.264 and MJPEG video can be streamed simultaneously, or a single stream can be deployed to monitor at 1960 x 1080 resolution at a staggering 60 fps. Image quality is further enhanced by Moxa's Image Stabilising and Digital Noise Reduction technology. Mercado notes that many visitors to the Moxa booth have expressed great interest in the camera's rugged design. One visitor stated, "I'm extremely impressed by Moxa's engineering skill in wide temperature design and manufacturing. The cameras we've used before have all been prone to failure and need to be replaced or serviced at least several times a year. We will definitely be requesting a unit for testing when this goes into production." According to Mercado, the VPort 66-2MP is scheduled for production on July 1 as Moxa completes final testing and certifications, and the company is now accepting inquiries.
Moxa, a global provider of communication infrastructure solutions supporting the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), is significantly lowering the overall cost of industrial data management with the introduction of its ultra-efficient ioLogik™ 2500 4-in-1 smart data acquisition solution that combines I/O functionality, an Ethernet switch, serial/Modbus connectivity, and up to 32 GB of data logging into a single remote device. Leveraging the company's Click&Go™ Plus logic technology to control the I/O array, the ioLogik 2500 empowers engineers to reduce the number of system components and connections, and to eliminate the need for extensive rewiring during a daisy chain expansion. As a result, it minimises overall system cost and complexity, while increasing data acquisition efficiency and accuracy. "The ioLogik 2500 all-in-one unit provides the ideal platform for Ethernet communications while efficiently allowing expandability and local data logging," explained Jei Mercado, Business Development Manager for Moxa. "As the size and complexity of industrial networks continue to grow, data management has become a critical function for unlocking meaningful insights that could optimize outcomes across the entire business -- the ioLogik 2500 is the smart solution to address this challenge by supplying real-time data for critical applications." Key to the success of the new ioLogik™ 2500 is its ability to communicate with multiple remote I/O devices under a single IP address, therefore simplifying daisy chain expansion of industrial networks and providing for the most efficient data acquisition at the lowest cost, especially for industrial field sites that have an insufficient number of IP addresses. The ioLogik's slave Ethernet port can link up to 8 daisy-chained ioLogik E1200 expansion modules and convert more than 100 channels to one IP address. Meanwhile, the other three Ethernet ports cab be used to connect to any Ethernet-driven field device. Data can overwhelm an organisation, making it difficult to find the information that really matters. Moxa Click&Go Plus™ control logic integrates patented Active Tags technology to uncover real time data for critical applications, plus allows active messaging, email, or SMS to provide real time event notification. Click&Go Plus supports up to 48 rules with further upgrades to 8 conditions/actions. The Moxa ioLogik 2500 supports micro SD cards with up to 32 GB of memory, turning it into a powerful datalogger for storing valuable data. With a built-in FTP server, important data from field sites can be accessed remotely by different systems. In addition, the 2 serial communication ports can be used to input data from devices using the Modbus RTU protocol, and then transform the data into Modbus TCP or AOPC tag format before sending it out over the Ethernet network. Moxa currently offers two versions of the ioLogik 2500: the ioLogik 2512 with eight channels of digital inputs and the ioLogik 2542 with four channels of analog inputs. A wireless version of the ioLogik 2500 will be released later in the year.
