Moxa Inc.  introduces a new range of IP cameras designed for all extreme weather applications.

Moxa’s new VPort 26A-1MP is a dome-type extreme weather HD IP camera designed to operate reliably in a -40°C to +75°C temperature range without a fan or heater.

Designed for industrial applications, the VPort 26A-1MP is equipped with rugged features for both day and night outdoor surveillance in harsh environments, and delivers superior video performance, DNR and WDR functions, and IP bandwidth optimisation.

Extreme industrial-grade reliability

The VPort 26-1MP is part of Moxa’s new generation of extreme weather IP cameras built to operate in both blistering hot deserts and sub-zero snow covered environments. A robust IP66 standard metal housing and EN 62262 IK10 vandal-proof dome cover provide exceptional weather-proofing and protection while the camera’s dehumidifying membrane keeps moisture out. The VPort 26-1MP is EN 50121-4 compliant, making it well suited for demanding railway, public safety, and high humidity applications, including tunnels, and offshore and heavy duty industries.

Video optimisation

The VPort 26-1MP provides sharp surveillance images even in poor lighting conditions, and delivers 1280 x 720 HD resolution at 30 FPS simultaneously over three video streams (2 x H.264 plus 1 x MJPEG). Its vari-focal megapixel lens offers a 3-9 mm focal length for exceptional quality and zoom, and the removable IR cut filter ensures that images can be captured both day and night. The built-in DNR (digital noise reduction) further sharpens video quality while WDR (wide dynamic range) technologies help users improve video visibility to identify image details such as faces and license plates, even as the target moves quickly between bright and dark environments.

Bandwidth adaptation

The VPort 26-1MP uses H.264 compression to maintain image quality while reducing the required amount of storage space and bandwidth. In response to dynamic network traffic conditions, the VPort 26-1MP uses Moxa’s own DynaStream flexible frame rate control technology to automatically adjust bandwidth, increasing the frame rate when emergency events occur, and preserving bandwidth for other higher priority packet flows during normal operation. For channels with limited bandwidth, the VPort 26-1MP uses Moxa’s CBR Pro flow control technology to prevent image distortion when the channel is overloaded. 

Interoperability and integration

The VPort P26-1MP extreme weather IP cameras combine 5.8 W power consumption and IEEE 802.3af PoE technology to enable simple and cost saving installation for hard-to-wire outdoor applications. Both the VPort 26A and VPort P26A-1MP provide ONVIF-compliant interoperability for easy integration with any third party surveillance system.

Moxa’s IP camera products support interoperable features for seamless integration with major surveillance platforms such as Milestones and Genetec. Users can simply add Moxa’s extreme weather IP cameras to surveillance systems used for license plate recognition, transportation, and other applications.
