This is an impressive find in a hardened server and storage solution.
Operational Temperature is -15°C to +55°C with a +71°C Option and with a Solid State Drive you can get to -55°C to 85°C w/humidity kit! Can work at 12,500ft and includes a vibration kit for SSD.
You have a choice of Intel® CPU architecture options from Intel embedded long-life with room for fifteen (15) removable SATA or SAS 2.5” or 3.5” HDDs and/or thirty (30) 2.5” rugged drives mounted in pairs. Rugged Drivepacks (RDp) offer 48 hot-swappable 2.5″ HDDs.
You can expect to pay almost double for a standard high-end server and storage, which considering the specs isn’t really that bad.
Although I did get the name wrong when suggesting this little app in my book, I find it a valuable tool that simplifies many aspects of the architectural process. I use it to decide what lens to use for License Plate Recognition (LPR), what the storage requirements are for projects that include a multitude of different cameras, frame rates and codecs and even for height and area-of-coverage requirements. Hey, anything that makes the math easier is fine with me! Here’s a peak at the new version where they greatly improved the 3D component.
IP Video System Design Tool v7
Working on a project that includes intrusion detection along a fence perimeter. Fiber Sensys uses multimode fiber installed onto the fence as a media to sense vibrations at various levels.
FiberSensys uses a single strand of multimode sensing fiber installed onto the fence as a designated “Zone” (up to 25 zones with the FD525). This single strand is fusion spliced onto a fiber trunk (singlemode or multimode – doesn’t matter) and then must be terminated using either ST/APC, SC/APC or LC/APC connectors (color coded green) at the patch panel. APC jumpers connect from the fiber patch panel to the Fiber Sensys fiber splitter and then connected via a single SC/APC jumper into the FD 525 Fiber Sensys Alarm Processing Unit (APU) which will include an I/O module to be wired into an alarm system and VMS system via I/O interfaces.
The moment someone tries to climb the fence, configured PTZ cameras in that area turn to that zone’s preset and begins recording and auto tracking. Slick!
