Overview

Remote Industrial Video Surveillance

Bentek Systems provides complete Remote Video Surveillance Systems for Industrial Applications including:

  • Oil & Gas
  • Pipeline
  • Power
  • Water Systems
  • Mining
  • Manufacturing

Visual monitoring can be a vital component of remote site monitoring. Manual Visual Check or Automatic Visual Analytics can provide monitoring of large areas for the following purposes:

  • Security against Theft, Vandalism or Sabotage
  • Personnel Safety – Work Alone at Remote Sites
  • Process Monitoring – Loading Racks, Flare Monitoring
  • Sites with Large Environmental Impact

Remote Video Monitoring Systems Components

Remote Video Surveillance Systems Consist of Intelligent IP Camera Systems, Remote Communications, and Remote Power Systems.

IP Camera Systems can generate snapshots, MPEG clips on Schedule, Alarm, or Demand.  For sites, with high bandwidth, users can access the live streaming video. Cameras can perform capture based on external I/O triggers such as motion or door alarms; or via video analytics within the intelligent IP camera.

For Remote Site applications, low power operation is required since the system may only be powered by battery or solar power.

IP Cameras

IP Cameras

IP Camera Systems are used in Remote Video Surveillance. IP cameras feature digital image sensors with high image resolutions, onboard web server,  DVR storage, video analytics, Dual Image Sensor, Power over Ethernet Connectivity, and low power operation making it suitable for remote industrial video surveillance.  Cameras can provide 1 or two images sensors providing the combination of Day, Night, Zoom and Thermal Image Sensors.  With an intelligent IP camera architecture, remote video systems using this IP Camera architecture can support 1 to N cameras.  The integrated web server in the camera provides easy integration into video monitoring systems, SCADA Hosts, and SatSCADA.

SAT130 Dual Mode Cell/Sat Modem

The SAT130 Dual Mode Satellite/Cellular Modem IoT Gateway can be provided for remote connectivity to IP Cameras for Remote Site Video Surveillance & Monitoring Applications.

Satellite/Cell Connectivity

The SAT130 with Dual Mode Sat Cellular Connectivity allows connectivity even in the most remote areas.  In areas of cellular communication, the SAT130 can provide high-speed IP communications to IP cameras for streaming video,  video and image files. In areas without cellular coverage, the satellite mode can provide the ability to send image files on demand or schedule.  The SAT130 has an FTP Proxy which can allow IP cameras to transfer images over the satellite link.

Ethernet Connectivity

The SAT130 has Ethernet Connectivity for Connectivity to IP Cameras.

 

Remote Power

Frequently at Remote Sites, line power may not be readily available. Remote Video Surveillance Systems may require remote power systems including battery, solar, fuel cells or generators. For remote sites without readily available utility power, Solar and TEG Power Systems can be supplied to power the equipment.   Intelligent Power Control (timed control of camera or illumination system) may be required to minimize power draw.
