Outdoor Cameras and Enclosures for the Railroad Industry
Custom Solutions for Common RR Hot Spots
When it comes to providing security and infrastructure to the rail industry, there are several common hot spots that are discussed.
- CCTV Cameras at Railroad Crossings
- NEMA Enclosures for wayside controllers and electronic equipment
- PTZ Cameras for Loading Stations
- Outdoor Weatherproof Cameras at Switchyards
- Portable CCTV for Maintenance and New RR Building Sites
Building a Complete, Manageable Solution
Optiview offers outdoor rated NEMA3 enclosures and IP67 weatherproof CCTV hardware to provide infrastructure support and surveillance to the full railway facility, along with a free software that connects all components for an easy to use security system.
Optiview's professional grade hardware can be installed at the engine house, in maintenance yards, on light, concrete or metal poles, and along the perimeter. Marine grade aluminum enclosures and powder coated aluminum cameras will stand up to the environment for years to come.
- HD Surveillance
- Access Control
Every year it seems we are hearing of more incidents where drivers attempt to beat the train by crossing tracks either as the arm is coming down, or after it has already been blocked. By installing high definition industrial weatherproof IP cameras or HD over Coax cameras at railroad crossings there will be irrefutable footage for what actually transpired.
NEMA 3 and NEMA 4 marine grade aluminum enclosures are available to be used in any way desired. The enclosures include sunshade, insulation, cam lock, removable back plate (for installing equipment), and wall/pole/tower brackets.
Loading areas are prone to issues such as theft, incompetence, and user error and should be covered by a range of fixed and PTZ cameras that transmit back to the main control center for live view and playback.These can be hardwired or custom built solutions, like the WPIP2SD-PTZ.
Perimeter and Gate Control
Cameras along the perimeter of the property capture trespassers, thieves, or looters, day or night with high quality, clear video and full color night time recording. Depending on the environment, advanced features such as PTZ with auto tracking, or thermal cameras can be installed.
Solar powered platforms with 18 to 30ft masts can be placed in remote areas such as railway maintenance or new construction. The mobile, solar powered platforms can be customized to have any combination of IP / network cameras, lighting, or communications equipment. Cameras can be viewed live with either a wireless bridge or cellular modem device in place.
The Optiview mobile app and desktop OS allows for the addition of up to 256 cameras to be viewed in groups, monitors access control logs, and allows the viewer to take full high resolution snapshots and video from any device that it is installed on. The VMS and app are 100% free and supports all Optiview cameras, recorders, and access control systems.
More Than a Security Supply House
Optiview offers both security and infrastructure equipment to manage many different types of facilities such as marinas, schools, retail shopping centers, storage, airports, and government. Many customers come back for networking equipment and infrastructure, wireless equipment, network cable (CAT5 / CAT6), weatherproof enclosures, and more.
This type of turnkey operation allows Optiview to provide a large variety of solutions that fit the customer's needs, and integrates hardware, software, and technology as you can see below.
Optiview has a long, and storied history working with multiple railroad companies since we opened in 1999. We have supplied and designed CCTV systems, with CCTV cameras, wireless, and network or digital video recorders, as well as custom building solutions inside the the ArmorLogix NEMA 3 and NEMA 4 enclosures with switches, lights, thermostats and heaters, and other infrastructure equipment.
